Canon Announces the M100 Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera
Canon has announced the arrival of the all-new M100 Entry-Level, interchangeable lens, mirrorless camera, which will supersede the [now two year old] M10
Adding to the already-impressive range of mirrorless cameras that can be found in the Canon line up nowadays, the M100 comes in at an entry-level price point, but also comes armed with an equally impressive spec list.
Ok, it’s not a high-end DSLR [or mirrorless] beater, but if you consider the cost, the new model offers a great deal of flexibility [with regards to lens options] and with a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor with a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25,600, the image quality is likely to be rather good.
Canon has also considered the target market carefully with the M100, and you’ll find a host of functions that will appeal to those looking for a simple to operate solution, with intuitive tilt & touch-controlled screen, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, creative filters, along with full HD movie-making capability.
