Canon’s new mirrorless camera is like an M5 in a smaller (and cheaper) body


Canon has announced a new mirrorless camera called the M100. If you were expecting a break from the “small brick” design that Canon uses for all but one of its mirrorless cameras... you must be new here. This is a simple, $599 (with a kit lens) followup to the two-year-old M10, through and through. But with a similar makeup to the M5, which is decidedly Canon’s most exciting mirrorless camera, the M100 might be a little more than meets the eye, as well as an affordable way to ease into Canon’s slow-growing M lineup.

The M100 gets spec bumps across the board from the M10 — some slight, some significant. The most notable is that the M100 uses a bigger 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, and Canon’s DIGIC 7 image processor, which means it’s basically got the same guts as the M5. That’s good! I loved the images that the M5 captures when I reviewed the camera this past winter — even if the rest of it felt outdated. Offering something similar at a lower price point is definitely a good thing, even if it’s not a revolution. (Of course, Canon already did this with the slightly more robust M6, which now sits between the M100 and the M5.)
