A small camera with huge potential
If you're looking for a great camera you can take anywhere, you can count on the Canon EOS M100 to deliver high-quality photos and videos. This compact camera shares the same 24.2-megapixel image sensor and powerful DIGIC 7 processor with some of Canon's latest EOS DSLRs, giving you EOS performance and image quality in a much more portable camera.
Intuitive framing and focusing
The M100 has a 3" tilting LCD touchscreen for easy, intuitive shooting. The screen tilts upward for easy composition from low angles or when you want to shoot from the hip. It turns all the way forward to face you so you can frame your selfies perfectly and be included in group shots. Use the touchscreen to change settings, define autofocus points, and trigger the shutter.
A lens you can use every day
The included 15-45mm lens combines with the M100 for a compact system that can go with you anywhere. Built-in Image Stabilization helps you capture blur-free photos and shake-free videos, while specialized lens elements contribute to picture clarity and sharpness. Use it for portraits and documenting daily life — it's an excellent all-around lens.
Keep up with the action
The M100's Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system is fast and smooth. This 49-point system excels in challenging light and accurately tracks moving subjects. The M100 can capture action sequences at a rate of up to six frames per second. Movie focus is natural and precise, even when switching between subjects.
A talented moviemaker
The M100 records Full HD movies in MP4 format for easy sharing. Touch-activated autofocus and manual controls make it easy to adjust settings on the fly. The included STM (stepping motor) lens gives you near-silent continuous autofocus during shooting. The camera's Digital Image Stabilization system minimizes camera shake, so you can capture video on foot and the results won't make you seasick.
Wireless convenience and control
The M100's built-in Wi-Fi lets you upload and share photos and videos in a matter of moments. You can exchange data with other Canon cameras, play back images and movies on a Smart TV, and print directly to a Wi-Fi printer.
Canon's free Camera Connect app lets you manage photos and videos taken with the M100 on your phone or tablet. Use your device to see what the camera sees, change settings, and trigger the shutter remotely.
