2017 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500
Canon EOS M10
18MP APS-C CMOS sensor | Hybrid CMOS AF II | Tilting touchscreen LCD
What we like:
- Tilting LCD
- Well-implemented touch features
- Numerous special effects and creative filters
What we don't:
- Poor battery life
- Limited selection of EF-M lenses
The Canon EOS M10 is a lightweight and compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that offers a number of useful features and an 18MP CMOS sensor at an entry-level price. Similar to other cameras in this class, it offers a tilting LCD, numerous creative filters, but no viewfinder. The M10 uses Canon's EF-M mount, which is limited to just a few lenses at this point (it supports EF-S/EF lenses via an adapter).
The M10 has a composite body and weighs in at just 301g/10.6oz. Its articulating 3” touchscreen LCD display can tilt up to 180 degrees upward and 45 degrees downward. The camera is very light on buttons, instead relying on an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. Given this, the M10 doesn't offer much in the line of customizable controls.
Its Hybrid CMOS II AF system on the M10 features 49 available focusing points, with 80% and 70% coverage (vertical/horizontal). While not as fast as Canon's Dual Pixel AF, the M10's AF system is still very respectable. The camera can shoot continuously at 4.6 fps with single AF and 2.2 fps with continuous AF. Battery life is not great; the camera can take 255 shots per charge, according to CIPA testing protocols.
The M10 is capable of shooting Full HD video at 24, 25 and 30, in MP4 format. The touchscreen display allows you to tap-to-focus, which is especially handy for rack focusing. Full control over exposure is available, as is focus peaking, audio level adjustment and a wind filter.
While the EOS M10 is a perfectly capable mirrorless camera, it falls behind other cameras in this class due to its very limited lens selection and poor battery life.
