PROS

  • The camera feels light and compact.
  • The camera's 3-inch touch screen tilts up 180 degrees for selfies.
  • The EOS M10's touch controls are nicely implemented.

CONS

  • The camera lacks image stabilization.
  • The EOS M10 doesn't have a hot shoe for an external flash.
  • The camera lacks a built-in viewfinder--and you don't have an option to use an external unit.
The Canon EOS M10 is a mirrorless camera with an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Its 3-inch and 1.04 million-dot touch screen LCD pivots for selfie-taking. The camera captures 1920 X 1080 full HD video at frame rates of 24 and 30 frames per second--and it can record in MP4 format. The M10 uses the company's hybrid CMOS AF II autofocus system, which measures up to 49 different points; plus, object tracking and face detection help keep your subject focused even when moving. The camera includes a built-in flash, but no viewfinder. The M10 supports Wi-Fi and NFC.

Canon M10 weighs 301 g...Considering that the average weight of Mirrorless type cameras is 373g, Canon M10 is a remarkably light camera for its class. Even better, with a thickness of only 35mm, it is also quite small, 8mm thinner than the average of its class.

Images straight out of the camera were decently sharp in good light, but unsurprisingly you begin to see noise in low-light situations.

During our hands-on session we gave the autofocus a try in a low-light scene. While it managed to lock on noticeably faster than the original EOS M, there were still a few occasions where it struggled to find focus.

The Canon EOS M10 is a simple camera with a design to match its target audience. The main body is a clean block...The front surface is almost featureless beyond the Canon and EOS logos...There's no defined grip on the smooth front, just a little ridge on the rear for your thumb to press against.

[T]he M10 feels nicely made and is economically sized given that it houses an APS-C format sensor. While the back has a small thumbpad, there's no grip on the front of the camera, which is a slight concern.

The camera’s screen turns back a full 180 degrees on a single hinge, allowing you to take selfies very easily. It even auto-switches to the selfie mode when the screen is twisted around to the right position.

These days, discussions about image quality come down to really splitting hairs. I don’t think the EOS M10, as a consumer oriented camera, is worth splitting too many hairs. That said, the EOS M10 captures great images.

It looked as though Canon might have started to make a bigger impact in the mirrorless market rather than just carrying through with its brand name, but the EOS M10 is a step backwards rather than a forwards driver.
