The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a mid-priced mirrorless camera with a nice suite of features to explore. Like all mirrorless cameras, it has done away with the space-consuming internal mirrors of DSLR cameras. Instead, the sensor acts as viewfinder, autofocus system, and image creator all-in-one. The lack of mirrors gives mirrorless cameras a compact form that’s more comfortable for longer photoshoots. With the choice of a silver or black-framed body, and a vintage film camera look, the Mark II has a very classy feel. But how do the features of this stylish camera really measure up?

The Canon EOS M100 is the successor to the Canon EOS M10, released a few years earlier. Canon has a small selection of mirrorless cameras; the M5, M6, M10, and M100 make up the current lineup.

The result is a much more compact camera, though the extra power requirements do lead to poor battery life. The EOS M100 is the next step for Canon’s mirrorless line and we’ll examine it thoroughly here.

The fast, very sharp Leica lens is paired well with the 12.8 Megapixel sensor. It makes for a fun and precise shooting experience for most travel, street, and general photography. If you’re going out for the evening with friends, this is the camera to bring.
