Canon Announces the EOS M10 Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera and EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens

m10_front_black.jpegCanon has announced the EOS M10 Digital Camera, and a new EF-M 15-45mm f/3-6.3 IS STM Lens. These should be available next month in November 2015.

Canon appears to be very serious about the EOS M System, since Canon USA recently made an announcement in August 2015 about the availability of the EOS M3 Camera, EF-M 11-22mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM,  EF-M 22mm f/2 STM in Silver, and EF-M 55-200mm IS STM Lenses; and now they're announcing the new EOS M10 Digital Camera and yet another new EF-M Lens. See the article we published in August 2015 here:

Canon USA Announces the EOS M3 Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera and 3 new EF-M Mount Lenses for the US Market

Like the EOS M3, the new EOS M10 will also include an advanced DIGIC 6 Image Processor, combined with a Hybrid Autofocus System that is much faster than the design used in the original EOS M Camera launched 2 years ago. The EOS M10 and EOS M3 also both sport a 3 inch touchscreen with 1.04 million dots and the ability to tilt 180 degrees up for selfies. The EOS M10 and EOS M3 both include NFC and WiFi, too. Both cameras can also shoot 1080p Video.

But, if you want a hotshoe so you can use an optional EVF or Canon Speedlight, you'll need to move up to the more expensive M3 instead, since the new EOS M10 does not have a hotshoe. However, the M10 will come with a built in pop up flash:

The new EOS M10 camera will come in a kit with the new EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens for an estimated retail price of $599.99, and should be available next month in November 2015. It will be offered via retailers in both black and white. Canon also plans to release a gray version of this camera exclusively through the Canon Online store at http://shop.usa.canon.com

The new EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens will also be available separately for an estimated retail price of $299.99.

NEW EOS M10 DIGITAL CAMERA PUTS IMAGING POWER AND CONVENIENCE

INTO THE HANDS OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA GENERATION


Compact Addition to the EOS M-Series of Cameras Is Flexible, Stylish and Fun

With an Emphasis on Connectivity


MELVILLE, N.Y., October 13, 2015 - For capturing and sharing life's important moments with great clarity, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the EOS M10 interchangeable lens digital camera. A compact and stylish design, the EOS M10 camera has the features and lens options to help photographers expand their creativity and the mobile compatibility and size for social-sharers to stay connected with sharp images that are sure to draw 'Likes'.


Adding to its compact design, the EOS M10 camera is fitted with a new retractable EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, that shortens and locks into a compact size when not in use. This retractable Canon interchangeable lens provides outstanding image quality that helps the EOS M10 camera remain small and lightweight to go with you anywhere.


For those "selfie" moments that can't be missed, the EOS M10 camera's three-inch screen tilts up 180 degrees to help make sure everyone is in the shot. The touch panel LCD screen also lets users browse images and navigate menus with ease. The camera's Creative Assist mode makes it easy to adjust settings and add effects such as brightness, background blur, vividness of color, contrast, warmth and filter effects to create share-worthy images on the go - letting you stylize your photos and capture the moment just as you want. And, to help everyone look their selfie-best, the Self Portrait mode adjusts camera effects and settings to enhance skin smoothness and brightness.


"This is the camera for the social media generation, including those who love to take and share high-quality photos and video while on the go. It will help them make the transition to a dedicated, high-quality digital camera, because of its mobile compatibility and creative options," said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc.

The built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality of the EOS M10 camera is compatible with most current AndroidTM devices** for easy setup of Wi-Fi® communication, and the camera's Mobile Device Connect Button supports wireless connectivity with IOS® and AndroidTM devices. The EOS M10 camera also supports wireless remote control featuring live view in compatible Apple® and Android devices using Canon's free Camera Connect app***, available through the Apple App Store and Google PlayTM store.


The EOS M10 camera is fully compatible with Canon's Connect Station CS100, a home hub device that provides a fast and easy way to store photos and videos from the camera as well as view them on the living room TV, transfer them to social media networks and share them with other linked Connect Station CS100 devices, for an added level of sharing.

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. The camera body is available in black or white, and will also be available in gray exclusively through the Canon Online store at http://shop.usa.canon.com/.
