What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Canon EOS M100 with EF-M 15 - 45 mm lens - Black
  • Design is simple and compact. Size is almost like a point and shoot camera but with the capabilities of a DSLR.
  • Considering its size I can use with manual settings as normal. Love it!
  • Less weight for me to travel with, amazing quality pictures. This is fits my needs perfectly.
  • Love it. Bought it for traveling and the size and weigh is great. Very easy to use too.
  • It will provide you with some very pleasing images and because of its size and weight it's camera you won't mind taking everywhere you go.
Fujifilm X-A3 XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Kit - Camel
  • The X-A3 is the smallest of Fujifilm’s compact system cameras, but it follows the same kind of design principles, being retro or old-fashioned in appearance.
  • For a relatively compact camera, the Fujifilm X-A3 features a large sensor – it's a 24.2MP APS-C sensor, similar in size to those in many DSLRs.
  • Super small and compact. I love this because I can easily take with me.
  • The feeling of weight is something new so light that I can take pictures for a couple of hours without stopping.
  • The lens adds a lot of weight to your hands. It is not very convenient to shoot with a lens.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Canon EOS M100 with EF-M 15 - 45 mm lens - Black
  • At low- ISO image quality indistinguishable from Canon's full-frame cameras.
  • At high ISO, it gets too loud with every photo taken. High ISO is very noisy.
  • I found the low speed continuous drive mode a great feature as I can take just a couple of shots, wasting the first one to a bit of camera button shake.
  • I found the pop-up flash is a bit fiddly to select, and it seems only helpful for portrait images in very poor light.
  • If you continue shooting 1080p60 video after ten minutes, it may tell you to wait for the camera to cool.
Fujifilm X-A3 XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Kit - Camel
  • The X-A3 has a native ISO range of 200 to 6400, which is expandable up to ISO25600 if necessary.
  • ISO perfectly copes with all conditions. I can take pictures in any conditions and I will receive excellent photos. And also at high ISO there are no loud noises.
  • Photos in low light are something because I did not see that they could be so beautiful and high quality.
  • You are able to shoot in both JPEG and raw format with the Fujifilm X-A3, but it should be noted that not all functionality will be available in raw format.
  • The lowest sensitivity you can shoot at in raw is ISO 200 - you will need to switch to JPEG only shooting if you want to shoot at ISO 100.

What customers say about "Display"
Canon EOS M100 with EF-M 15 - 45 mm lens - Black
  • The camera has a point and shoot mode which is amazingly good and works similar to most new smartphones, you can even tap the screen to focus and take the shot.
  • The video function is easy to use, has a flip up screen to check yourself out on, and the still image element has loads of great features to help create the best pic you can.
  • The touch screen controls feel nice and easy to use and are great to adjust the auto focus point directly.
  • The monitor screen tilts down to a good angle so is really good if you need to hold the camera above your head to get those crowd shots or videos.
  • The screen is very hard to see in bright sunlight, I can not view the photographs taken.
Fujifilm X-A3 XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Kit - Camel
  • The Fujifilm X-A3’s screen is touch-sensitive, which means you can use it to set the AF point too, or even fire off the shutter release.
  • The screen is mounted on a hinge which allows it to be tilted. You can angle it slightly downwards, and if you pull it out from the hinge slightly, you can face it all the way forwards.
  • It has a really neat little flip screen, so I can take selfies and I really like that it has a touch screen.
  • Great for taking selfies using the 180° tilt screen gives perfect visibility. Customisable buttons so that the command button can take the picture makes it miles easier to take the selfie.
  • There’s no viewfinder for the Fujifilm X-A3, but there is a hotshoe on top of the camera if you wanted to purchase one as a separate accessory.

What customers say about "Features"
Canon EOS M100 with EF-M 15 - 45 mm lens - Black
  • Don't believe rubbish about this being a beginners camera, it not, it has all the control modes and functions it's a fully equipped camera.
  • It's very easy to use as a point and shoot in auto mode, but can also be used in manual too if you like taking total control of all your camera settings.
  • In fully automatic mode, the camera does a great job if you can sacrifice manual aperture and shutter control or don't have any idea why you would want to do such a thing.
  • It also has a creative assist function where you can play with setting, find one you like, and save it for future use.
  • The only primary feature missing for me, coming from their DSLRs, is auto-bracketing mode.
Fujifilm X-A3 XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Kit - Camel
  • Excellent panoramic shooting. I like to bring a camera with me so that i can take photos for remember.
  • Film simulation modes are the same as on my XT100 and offer great ways of changing picture quality depending on what/where you are taking your pictures.
  • In auto mode - the focus can struggle. But in manual mode, the sensor comes in to its own and lets you take stunning astrophotography shot.
  • In daylight, even on auto, the focus is fine and I love the touch to shoot where you can touch the screen and it will focus and shoot at that point.
  • Impossible to take pictures in the rain as this camera is not waterproof

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Canon EOS M100 with EF-M 15 - 45 mm lens - Black
  • Camera Connect app, which means that you have a great remote control for tripod mount photos cutting out any camera shake from pressing the button.
  • The HD movie recorder is brilliant. The quality is more than I was expecting. The camera connects to HD ready devices using the HDMI slot.
  • I love the fact that you can connect wireless and upload you pictures to your phone, laptop seamlessly.
  • If you want to capture the HDMI output, you cannot capture for more than 30 minutes before the "display" turns off, ending HDMI output.
  • Quality is good. But the cap is hard to be securely locked and wifi connection is hassle comparatively.
Fujifilm X-A3 XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Kit - Camel
  • Photos are printed from the camera thanks to PictBridge, which makes it very easy.
  • USB port works perfectly and quickly transfer photos to my computer.
  • Surprisingly, it has an HDMI connector; it allows me to watch my photos on a TV.
  • Connecting in the old fashioned way through usb is very frustrating since all cameras already use Wi-Fi and NFC.
  • A month later, the computer stopped seeing the camera, the USB connector broke and did not work anymore.
