I was lucky enough to spend a week with the Canon EOS R10, which is now the cheapest route for their RF mirrorless camera system. And while it’s not perfect, the R10 convinced me that it should now top the list for budding photographers.

That’s a big deal, because it’s something we haven’t been able to say about a Canon camera in a long time. Their Rebel DSLRs (known as triple-digit EOS cameras outside the US) were once the default choice for students. But in the mirrorless era, Canon failed and let Sony, Fujifilm and Nikon steal your budget camera lunch.
