Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Camera Review

The white Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Digital Camera is small and lightweight, making it an ideal everyday companion for individuals who seek a camera system that is both simple to operate and very capable in its capabilities. The 24.2MP APS-C camera’s built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth capabilities make it simple to share your photos and videos practically immediately after they are taken, even when they are in low light.

For those wishing to improve their photography abilities, this camera is an excellent starting place because it has a Creative Assist feature that will take you through how different settings will affect your image composition. Alternatively, if you simply want to chronicle your epic excursions with your friends, a Self Portrait mode is available, which takes advantage of the 3.0″ 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD’s 180-degree tilt capability to capture the moment.

Key Features:

  • 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Dual Pixel autofocus for stills and video
  • DIGIC 7 processor
  • 3″ tilting LCD
  • 6fps burst shooting (4 fps with continuous AF)
  • 1080/60p video with digital IS
  • Wi-Fi and NFC with Bluetooth
  • 295 shot-per-charge battery life (via CIPA)

A 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 processor combine to create clear, detailed images at sensitivities up to ISO 25600, making the M100 an excellent choice for photographers looking for a compact and powerful camera. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which provides fast and precise focusing when shooting both stills and video, will also be beneficial to photographers. Continuous shooting at up to 4 frames per second with AF or up to 6.1 frames per second with AF lock is also a standout feature. In addition to still images, the M100 is capable of recording high-quality video at speeds of up to 60 frames per second.

With the camera body comes a standard zoom lens from Canon, the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, which covers a focal length range of 24-72mm in equivalent focal length. Fast and silent autofocus performance is provided by the STM stepping motor, and the Optical Image Stabilizer adjusts for up to 3.5 stops of camera shaking for crisper handheld photography. Its optical design includes a trio of aspherical components that help to suppress chromatic aberrations across the zoom range, resulting in crisper and more detailed images throughout the zoom range.

APS-C CMOS sensor with 24.2MP resolution and DIGIC 7 image processor

High-sensitivity and rapid camera performance are provided by both an APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 image processor, which are suitable for use in both stills and video applications. The ISO range of 100-25600 is suitable for working in a variety of lighting circumstances, and the processing capabilities reduce noise to provide significant clarity in the images. In addition, the CPU adds to the camera’s rapid 4 frames per second continuous shooting rate, which may be increased to 6.1 frames per second with AF lock for photographing fast-moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also available, with a frame rate of up to 60 frames per second. Additionally, the CPU allows for a quicker camera startup time as well as shorter interval durations between each shot, resulting in a more intuitive and efficient shooting experience.

CMOS AF with Dual Pixels

A similar mechanism to that used by a camcorder to acquire focus is used by Dual Pixel CMOS AF to provide smooth and quick focusing performance. Using two distinct photodiodes integrated inside each pixel, this technology creates a broad and dense network of phase-detection collecting elements across a large portion of the image sensor, reducing focus chasing and allowing for faster and more direct control of focus placement in the picture. Although it is designed for still pictures, this focusing system is equally adept at acquiring critical focus on moving things, making it particularly well suited for shooting and monitoring moving subjects to ensure that critical focus is achieved with each shot.

Using Movie Servo Autofocus when recording video, you may achieve smooth and natural focusing when switching between several objects of varying distances within a scene. You can also customize the tracking sensitivity and speed, as well as the importance is given to Face Tracking when shooting video. Rack focus is made possible thanks to the Touch AF technology, which allows you to adjust the focus by merely touching anything within the scene on the touchscreen in an easy manner. It is also possible to achieve better subject tracking in movies, thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system’s ability to detect subjects and keep focus even while operating in rapidly changing or crowded environments.
