Canon quietly launches the M10 mirrorless camera

Just a few weeks after Canon launched its first decent mirrorless camera, the EOS M3, it has revealed a tiny, cheaper sibling, the EOS M10. The camera arrived in Canon’s store with no press release or price, but judging by the specs, it’s essentially a stripped-down version of the M3. It sports a lightweight, more basic body, and is equipped with an 18-megapixel instead of a 24.2-megapixel sensor. It’s pretty darn similar otherwise, however: it has the same 49-point AF, 25,600 max (expanded) ISO, 3-inch, 1.04 million dot touchscreen and 1080/30p video.

Depending on the price, the model might interest photographers looking for a very small APS-C camera who don’t want to spend $680 on the EOS M3 body. However, the lack of an EVF option and plain-Jane looks may be a deal-breaker for many, unless the M10 is considerably cheaper. There’s no word on availability, but it’ll come to the US in black, white and gray colors.

While Canon was at it, it also released a nice-looking 20.2-megapixel compact camera without really telling anyone. The PowerShot G5 X may tempt some folks away from Sony’s RX100 Mark IV or similar models, thanks to a 1-inch sensor, 24-100mm zoom lens (35mm equivalent), f/1.8 aperture, 2.36 million dot EVF, DIGIC 6 image processor and hot shoe mount for Speedlite flashes and other accessories. We do know pricing and availability for that model: it runs $799 and it’s now available in the US in Canon’s online store.
