<p>“We are living in a moment where more images are being taken and shared than any other time in history. In an increasingly visual world, high-quality images are the ones that truly stand out from the crowd,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A. “The new Canon EOS M100 can be the ideal camera for those eager to step up their images and share their creative vision without sacrificing image quality or on-the-go performance.”</p>

<p><strong>Discover a World That Cannot Be Captured with Smartphone Photography</strong>

Canon’s newest EOS M-Series offering helps expand creativity while providing the ability to capture photos that simply cannot be matched by smartphone photography. The EOS M100 camera is boosted by a powerful 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and the Canon DIGIC 7 processor. These attributes, alongside Canon lenses, are capable of rendering incredible details even when zoomed in on distant subjects or shooting in low-light scenarios, such as a dark restaurant. Packed with high-end features like Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which enables high-speed focusing for capturing fleeting moments nearly across the entire frame, and video mode, novice and enthusiast photographers alike will appreciate the tremendous capabilities of the new EOS M100 camera.</p>
<p>For those eager to share family photos, epic adventures or culinary creations with their friends and family, the EOS M100 camera is also Wi-Fi®<span class="green">*</span>, Near Field Communication (NFC)<span class="green">**</span> and Bluetooth<span class="green">***</span> connected, allowing for live-view remote shooting and the viewing and transferring of images to a compatible smart device, via the Canon Camera Connect app<sup><span class="green">††</span></sup>. High-quality images and video can be uploaded to a compatible device for easy sharing to select social media networks. Once connected through Bluetooth, the EOS M100 camera can also work with a compatible smartphone’s GPS function to provide a geo-tagged log of where every photo was taken on one’s journey.</p>
<p>The EOS M100 camera features a revamped and simple touch user interface that makes it easy for users to change settings, adjust modes and even focus on their subject. The 3.0-inch LCD touch-panel display also offers tilt functionality, helpful when shooting subjects from creative angles. Users can also use touch focus and Dual Pixel CMOS AF to smoothly transition focus between subjects with the touch of a finger.</p>
<p>Users will also discover a newly designed and intuitive touch interface that makes it easy to choose settings and focus shots, while beginners can learn and improve on their photography using Canon’s Creative Assist function, an intuitive setting that allows users to execute their creative vision, even without an “expert level” of camera knowledge. To make a scene brighter or blur backgrounds, users simply select their desired change within the Creative Assist menu, and the camera will automatically make corresponding setting adjustments, available immediately in live view. Preferred settings can be saved for next time, while those using the mode will begin to learn more advanced camera techniques to further pursue their creative vision—beyond just Auto Mode.</p>
<p>Sized to be an on-the-go camera, the EOS M100 is slimmer and lighter than other M-Series offerings, and fits neatly into a bag with ease. The new sleek and refined design features two body color options—white or black.</p>
<p>The use of interchangeable lenses is a differentiator factor of the Canon EOS M-Series from most smartphone photography, with Canon offering seven distinct and lightweight EF-M lenses, spanning wide-angle, telephoto and macro applications. EOS M100 users can find a lens for nearly any application while maintaining a compact system ready for on-the-go moments. For those with Canon’s EF lenses, the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter (sold separately) will allow for the use of Canon’s complete lineup of EF and EF-S lenses. Exploring close-up macro photography is also possible using the EOS M100, combined with a macro lens option—great for wildlife or detailed food photos.</p>

<p><strong>Expand Your Horizons with Useful Functions</strong>

The EOS M100 camera sports a host of useful functions for users of any level—whether a true beginner in the world of photography or someone who simply wants to take their images or video to the next level. These functions include:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Video Mode:</strong> Record Full HD 1080/60p video or picturesque time-lapse movies with the push of a button or use Hybrid Auto to pull still frames form HD video recording</li>
<li><strong>Continuous Shooting: </strong>Don’t miss a moment with up to 4 frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting; up to 6.1 with fixed AF</li>
<li><strong>ISO Range:</strong> 100-25,600 ISO range helps capture sharp images, even in low light</li>
<li><strong>In-Camera RAW Conversion: </strong>Allows users to experiment with RAW photography and experiment with various in-camera expressions</li>
<li><strong>Self-Portrait Mode:</strong> Using the 180-degree tilt of the LCD screen, take beautiful selfies and adjust brightness, focus and Smooth Skin functions with ease</li>
<li><strong>HDR Backlight Control:</strong> Shoot three images with different exposures to help naturally correct scenes that are backlit or show differences in contrast</li>
<li><strong>Bulb exposure:</strong> Continue shooting after the shutter button is released for light painting or capturing fireworks</li>
<li><strong>Creative Filters:</strong> To add a personal touch, choose from a variety of creative filter options like Grainy Film, Art Bold, Fish-eye Effect and more</li>
</ul>

Too bad there are no kits with 22mm lens, it would make a perfect travel combo for still and some video.

That is an awesomely small, sexy package. I hear ya though, no shoe is a deal breaker :(

God only knows what I'd do with it, would probably share the fate of my S110 and every other small camera I've bought... double digit shutter count, LOL.

Fuji, Olympus, etc. get mirrorless cameras with lots of useful controls that look retro-beautiful and Canon comes up with something that resembles more than anything a simple hotshot-less P&S Powershot with a lens on it. Sigh.

Maybe it is meant to look like a simple, easy to use Powershot like camera...

"body only" not offered? I will definitely never buy any EOS M camera kit with the 15-45 turd. Even if it comes almost for free.

The silver-brown combo looks great

even with the silver "turd" 15-45 (which i admit, doesn't look so good with the black inner barrel) and it's quite good when you actually use it :)

Hi guys!

The predecessor (M10) didn't have a hot shoe and if you need one, you can buy the old M3 or the M6 - though more expensive.
But that is the Canon marketing strategy and you can accept it or leave it.

Unfortunately not. 15-45 is the only sub-par perforemer in current EF-M lens lineup. All others have "decent to really excellent" IQ - especially considering price and size. EF-M 15-45 has IQ at level of first EF-S 18-55 kit zoom ... back in 2005 or so.

Re. "looks" of cameras or lenses ... I don't care at all ... as long as everything is non-reflecting matte-black. :D

i disagree. i have the turd on the M5 and the quality is close to that of the EF-S 15-85

the remark about the looks of the camera was towards ScottyP :)

maybe at the long end, but not that much different
at the wide end, the 15-45 is sharper than the 18-55 :)

You do not need a hot shoe unless you are going to buy a flash and few people do, especially in the camera's target group. Also that is a good way to make separation between the models and force those who want it to more expensive models. The original M came with a hot shoe as it came with a flash. I have almost never used it an do not carry it. For me the internal flash would clearly be a better thing.

Comparisons of lenses based on a single copy (that includes the TDP charts) are always dubious, but even more so for these low-end consumer zooms with lots of copy variation. AvTvM, it sounds like you may have received a bad copy of the 15-45

For the record, based on my copy at least, I certainly do not consider the 15-45 a turd. It's pretty comparable overall to the 18-55 in my view. Stronger at the wide end (not just because it goes to 15, but also in terms of IQ there), weaker at the "long" end. I actually see that as a positive thing, since going to 15 is its main differentiator from the 18-55. In fact, I'm off on a short family trip right now (where photography is only secondary) and I put the 15-45 on my M5, just for the wider angle opportunities.

I don't mind an onboard flash for 'emergencies', but not for routine use (particularly if some lenses cast a shadow!). The 90EX was available as a kit with the original M, but I skipped it in favor of the 270EX II – if I'm going to use a flash, I want the ability to bounce it.

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw that the battery is LP-E17, not the LP-E12.

EDIT: My joy didn't last long. It seems it packs the LP-E12, although most European websites show the LP-E17 :-\

This is off topic, but the only good things I have to say about the 90EX (which I got in the original M kit, as you say) were its cuteness and that it could be used to trigger a bigger flash like the 600EX-RT.
