Canon’s latest entry level mirrorless shooter the EOS M100 weighs a modest 302g with the dimensions of a somewhat chunky phone but comes with quite an exceptional array of hardware to let even the most ham-fisted shutterbug take brill snaps.
The effective successor to the EOS M10, the EOS M100 comes with a 24.2-MP sensor that integrates Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus which is the first time that this tech is making its debut in one of their entry-level snappers of this nature. Added to this is their DIGIC 7 image processor to create crisp images even of fast moving subjects. The EOS M100 is capable of a shooting speed of a respectable 6.1fps with fixed autofocus on and 4.0fps when servo autofocus is used and the camera itself has an expanded ISO range up to 25,600 that makes for better low light performance.
Shots are framed via the rear tiltable 3-inch touchscreen and a Creative Assist mode offers bungle-proof means to both navigate and access the myriad settings on the camera without having to fiddle about the menus. To make sharing snaps easier, the EOS M100 also sports Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity too.
The EOS M100 is quite a compact affair and, via an optional mount adaptor lets you use a large range of existing EF/EF-S lenses which makes it an interesting proposition if you’re looking to get a lighter camera for casual use that you can toss in your bag or when on a trip in lieu of carrying a larger sized full frame snapper.
The EOS M100 can be had in two possible configurations in Malaysia and in your choice of either gray, white or black. The camera along with a EF-15-45mm lens retails for RM2,499. You can also add in an EF-M55-200mm lens on top of the bundle for RM600 more. For more details swing by Canon Malaysia’s official website at www.canon.com.my
