The Canon EOS M10 is the first model in Canon’s portfolio of mirrorless cameras to be completely redesigned from the ground up. The M10 does not take the place of a model that came before it; rather, it broadens the scope of the range in a new way. More specifically, the Canon M10 is intended to serve as an easy-to-use introduction to mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.
The M10’s user-friendliness stems from its simpler overall design and construction. Is there a significant drop in image quality and performance when compared to its more advanced sister, the Canon EOS M3? Keep reading to find out more!

The M10 is a very portable interchangeable lens camera, with the body alone itself weighing just 10.6 ounces (301 grams). The Canon M3, which was released at the same time as this model, is somewhat lighter and more compact than this model, but the number of controls on each body is significantly different. The M10 lacks a mode dial on the top of the camera and has a significantly reduced number of buttons overall, notably on the back of the device.
In addition to the directional pad, the backside of the M10 only has buttons labeled “Playback” and “Menu” on it. On the very top of the camera is a button that releases the shutter, a dial, a button that records movies, a button that turns the camera on and off, and a switch that allows you to switch between taking still photographs and videos. Aside from that, you will place a significant amount of reliance on the tilting 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD panel, which has 1.04 million dots. The camera has been simplified, which may be disappointing for those who prefer to work with physical buttons, but the touchscreen functionality on the M10 is extremely well done. You will also have to rely on the touchscreen to frame your photographs because the M10 does not come with a viewfinder and does not have a way to connect an alternative viewfinder.
We believe that the M10’s simplified design will make it a simple camera to use for those just starting out in photography. The absence of tactile controls may prove to be a challenge for more experienced photographers. In general, the body is well-designed and has a rather robust feel for a camera in this price range, particularly the touchscreen display that can be tilted.

The Canon EOS M10 features a body that is both light and compact, making it easy to carry around in a purse or other small bag. When you hold the item in your hand, the shell does not have a cheap or flimsy feel to it, and it is rather substantial. Even if you’ve never used a computer before, you won’t have any trouble learning how to use it or making adjustments to the settings.
The tilting display made it simple to take selfies, and the combination of hybrid autofocus and auto tracking made it easy to keep things in focus. Images didn’t turn out to have the greatest details we’ve seen around, but this is expected given that the M10 is aimed at those who want a no-fuss point and shoot camera that packs adequate internals for all over casual photography.
The Canon EOS M10 may be purchased in one of three different lens kit bundles, as was just explained. The first option is to purchase an EF-M15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens at a price of Php20,998. The second package, which costs Php32,498 and comes with an extra EF-M55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens, is a value deal. The third will provide the option to purchase the first lens package in addition to an EF-M22mm f/2 STM pancake lens.
