The EOS M100 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 7 image processor. The faster processor helps shoot 4fps burst photos and up to 6.1fps with a fixed focus. Video recording also get s a slight boost with the camera now being able to shoot at a higher framerate than before (1080p, 60fps). Other features include ISO range of 100-25,600, in-camera RAW conversion, self-portrait mode thanks to the 180-degree 3-inch touchscreen and various creative filters.
