Deal Canon EOS R10 in Just $1000 at Best Buy

There has been a gap in the middle of Canon’s mirrorless camera lineup for a few years now. The Canon EOS R10 finally fills it. For beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons, or Canon fans looking for a secondary camera for everyday shooting, it’s now one of the best cameras on the market, and thanks to its small size and light weight, it’s also one of the best travel cameras.

It’s a bit more advanced and expensive than traditional entry-level cameras like the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 / EOS 250D DSLR, but the EOS R10 is a marked improvement over those models and well worth its price. It’s basically an evolution of double-digit DSLRs like the Canon EOS 90D, cameras that have become popular with those who want to photograph their family, vacations, and everyday life with a quality that rivals that of a smartphone.

The key to the Canon EOS R10’s charm is its Digic X processor, which provides the latest autofocus technology and some impressive continuous shooting speeds for its price. Dual Pixel CMOS AF II and 15 frames per second continuous shooting (though slowed by the EOS R10’s buffer memory) make this an ideal camera for capturing the family dog’s winning goal at water polo in the backyard.

The EOS R10 can track a wide range of subjects, including people, animals (dogs, cats, birds), and vehicles, and follows them quite tenaciously. That’s a really useful tool that elevates this camera above rivals like the Fujifilm X-S10, though that camera fights back with body-based image stabilization and (for now) a wider selection of lenses.

Ah yes, lenses. Along with the somewhat small viewfinder (at 0.59x magnification), they’re the EOS R10’s biggest weakness. At the time of writing, Canon has only made two native lenses for the EOS R10 and its sister EOS R7: the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom. That’s pretty low compared to Sony and Fujifilm, although with an optional adapter you can use both Canon’s full-frame RF lenses and older EF lenses on this camera.

Chances are, these options will be enough to tide you over until Canon releases new APS-C lenses. But if you want more options from the start or don’t like the uncertainty, then a camera like the Fujifilm X-S10 or Fujifilm X-T30 II might be a better fit.

If you’re just starting out and looking for a lightweight camera that will grow with you, the Canon EOS R10 is one of the best entry-level cameras around. Its new 24-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers beautiful images with enough latitude to bring out detail from shadows, even if you don’t want to go beyond ISO 6400 on a regular basis. You can also shoot impressive video, even if the 4K/60p mode comes with a 1.56x crop.

Despite its relatively old-fashioned sensor that isn’t back-illuminated, the EOS R10’s powerful processor, autofocus, and versatile controls give beginners a great camera to start with and a powerful camera to grow into. That means you can have a lot of fun with it while you wait for Canon to make more native lenses.
