As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Canon EOS M100 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, travel zooms, pro digicams and compacts. The Canon EOS M100's top rivals come from Panasonic (such as the Lumix DC-ZS80 (Lumix DC-TZ95) and the Lumix DC-GF10 (GF90)) and Canon (such as the EOS Rebel T6 and the PowerShot G7 X Mark II)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon EOS M100 compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it takes slightly higher resolution photos (24 MP vs 16 MP), has a touch screen, uses fast phase detection autofocus (phase detection vs contrast detection), is newer (august 2017 vs april 2015) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/500 of a second).

However, on average it doesn't shoot as fast continuously (6.1 fps vs 60 fps), significantly fewer lenses available (13 lenses vs 108 lenses), doesn't support an external flash and slightly shorter exposures (30 seconds vs 60 seconds).
