Canon Officially Announces Their New EOS M10
Perhaps the more interesting of the two (and not only because it didn’t like the G5 X) is the PowerShot G9 X. Here, at last, is Canon’s response to the Sony RX100 range, which is on its fourth iteration lest we forget. As with previous high-end Canon compacts, you can expect a wide support in housing compatibility. The camera will also be compatible with EF and EF-S lenses, but will need a mount adapter.
A couple of days ago thanks to a listing on Canon’s website, it seems that the company may have unintentionally announced its new mirrorless camera in the form of the EOS M10 a bit earlier than expected.
Now that Canon has (finally) figured out how to make a decent mirrorless camera, the manufacturer is adding another model to its lineup. For the more advanced photographer, the PowerShot G5 X’s high resolution, centered OLED electronic viewfinder offers DSLR-like handling, maximum comfort when shooting, and is ideal for photographers wanting to keep their eye on the scene. The sensor, along with a proprietary DIGIC 6 Image processor, creates Canon’s HS System to provide photographers with vivid and detailed still images and video, even in hardlow-light shooting scenarios. There is, however, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity so you can transfer images to your smartphone or cloud storage directly. A refresh rate of up to 120 frames-per-second should give a smooth feel to the EVF, while a built-in eye sensor will make transitioning easy when going from it to the rear 3-inch, 1.04 million dot vari-angle touchscreen.
Dial-lovers will find three dials on the camera: one on the front (right next to the grip), one on the top, one on the back and a control ring on the lens.
The Canon EOS M10 is for beginners but it’s a good first step for both Canon and for newbie photo enthusiasts looking outside the viewfinders of their smartphones. The APS-C sensor features a wide ISO range from 100 up to 12,800.
For both composing and viewing your photos, there’s a 3-inch touch panel with a new, customizable interface for quickly changing settings on the fly.
The EOS M10 camera is scheduled to be available through authorized Canon dealers in November 2015, and will be offered in a kit with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom lens at an estimated retail price of $599.99. This camera is not for the faint of heart – it is covered in knobs and dials, and there’s even a control ring around the lens.
The PowerShot G5 X measures 112.4 x 76.4 x 44.2 mm and weighs approximately 377 grams with battery and memory card installed.
