Besides, you won’t need a wealth of photography knowledge to handle the EOS M10 – it provides accessibility through a point-and-shoot model, plus a host of features that will take your photography to the next level.

High ISO Capability

Whether in the day or at night, the EOS M10 has the capability to take photos under a variety of light conditions. Equipped with an ISO range of 100-12800, and expandable to 25600, it means the camera can shoot under low light conditions without producing low quality, blurry photos. In technical terms, the lower the number, the less sensitive it is to available light; turning up your ISO number means increasing the camera’s sensitivity to light, gathering and transforming it into your image.
