Canon isn’t letting go of its commitment to the mirrorless trend, and has now launched a compact model named EOS M10 which is mostly targeted towards beginners. Moreover, it has also updated its PowerShot range with two high-end options that come in the form of the G5 X and the G9 X.
But first for the Canon EOS M10; it weighs in at 301gms and grabs a pretty traditional design. This camera impresses with its 18MP CMOS sensor which is of the APS-C type, and is accompanied by the advanced Digic 6 image processor. An ISO range of 100 to 12800 (expandable to 25600) can be extracted from this snapper.
It of course supports NFC and Wi-Fi, while it ships with a 49-point hybrid autofocus system and a 4.6fps continuous shooting mode. As for video, this Canon offering is able to shoot clips of 1080p resolution at 24fps or 30fps, while it can capture 720p clips at 60fps.
Coming to the PowerShot G5 X and the PowerShot G9 X, both these new cameras feature 1-inch 20.2MP sensors and run on Digic 6 image processors. Just like the EOS M10, they offer an extended ISO setting of 25600. They support Wi-Fi and NFC, while they even possess the ability to shoot RAW images with full manual controls.
Each of these Canon cameras shoots 1080p full HD videos at 60fps, moreover. The main differences between the two are on their bodies. The G5X kicks in a 2.36-million-dot electronic viewfinder and a tilting 3-inch LCD, while the G9 X does not grab an EVF and ships with a fixed screen.
The Canon EOS M10, the PowerShot G5 X and the PowerShot G9 X will hit stores in the US in November, and will be made available at $600 (with 18-55mm lens), $799 and $529, respectively.
