<em>Compact Addition to the EOS M-Series of Cameras Is Flexible, Stylish and Fun With an Emphasis on Connectivity</em></p>
<p><strong>MELVILLE, N.Y., October 13, 2015 –</strong> 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’.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>

Same $600 price as the Sony A6000.

Yet the canon has:

-no viewfinder
-no mode dial
-no hotshoe
-no grip
-no 1080P @ 60FPS
-slower lens
-only 18MP.

Yeah...this will sell.../sarcasm.

This camera might have been competitive 6 years ago.

Nobody noticed we got two new lenses. That 15-45 and a SILVER 55-200! :)

Oh look, a Sony NEX 3... 4 years after the fact. Who's been the director of this mirrorless unit at Canon that should be rolled out the door?

You can't compare the street price of a close-out model with the list price of a new model. The Sony is cheap because nobody wants to get caught with excess stock when its replacement comes.

I understand which of the two models you prefer, but I would get the one that's fun to use, solidly built, and provides the best color and skin tones. Extra points if that camera is made by a company that stands behind their products.

I agree that this should have been $200 cheaper.
Maybe it's a new 18MP sensor and it performs really well?
Maybe the 15-45 is just this super amazing sharp and distortion free lens?

I guess if the kit lens is good it shoiuld have been $499, but if they want to see progress they should sell the body on its own for $299.

Engineering is about managing compromises. That lens is low cost and collapses, so what do you think got compromised? Don't worry, you can always fix it in post! Maybe the sharpness slider will help too.

I wonder how many years it will take before we get a DSLR with higher dynamic range?

I don't know if I'm alone on this, but I could care less about a Canon mirrorless camera, or the entire EF-M system for that matter. I just want to see them making improvements to their fundamental DSLR technologies. I know a lot of people love mirrorless cameras but I don't really see why because with any decent lens attached the size benefit goes away, so you wind up saving half an inch of bag space to get a camera that is uncomfortable to hold and has awkwardly placed dials/buttons. If the body and lenses could both be both small, without sacrificing image quality, that would be something--but at Canon's pace maybe our grandchildren will get to see something like that.

It seems to me that everyone is getting it wrong when it comes to mirrorless cameras right now. IMO it comes down to two things--a good sensor, and a body that is comfortable with good analog controls. The Sony a7r-ii has a good sensor, but their interface is clunky and AF with the metabones + EF lenses didn't work well for me in anything but broad daylight. AF worked much better with Sony lenses, but they don't have enough great compatible lenses. Perhaps my a7r-ii was defective because it seems like everyone else is in love with it. Otherwise, if I had to use a mirrorless right now, it would probably be a Fujifilm because they're the only company that gets it right when it comes to analog controls, and their sensors and lenses are good enough. The only thing they lack is a full-frame sensor with very high resolution.

This is more comparable to the M2. Besides the Digic 6 processer, the M10 also has a popup flash and flip screen which are both missing from the M2. The M2 does has a rear dial, hotshoe, better standard grip, (M10 has an optional add-on grip) and a partial mode dial on top.

The EOS M is a lot smaller than the A7 series, and so are the lenses. I carry my M around in a bag that would be much too small for an SLR. The M3 is a bit bigger, but still not as big as an SLR.

I haven't had any issue with dynamic range. Mind you, I loved Kodachrome. That film had a DR issue, but it was easy enough to work around.

Besides tilting screen:
+ newer processor, WiFi, liveview control, and NFC
- lack of hot shoe , and perhaps body construction
compared to m2 .. it's available globally!

If they had included a hotshoe for an evf I would consider this, or if they had included and evf. I'm waiting for the M4 with an evf, then I think I've found my perfect hiking setup. The 11-22mm is tiny; they nailed it. Hullo, mirrorless camera makers, you need to have small lenses too, no? The 11-22 is a great example of that. It's as small as the smallest 4/3 Olympus ultra-wide.
