From the outside, you may think this camera looks the same as the others, but remember the age-old saying, never judge a book by its front cover - the same applies to this camera. At its core, the camera boasts a 24.1-megapixel sensor, ensuring that every image captured is rich in detail and vibrant in colour. This is complemented by its ability to shoot 4K video, a feature that's increasingly essential in an era where high-resolution content is king.

The camera's connectivity is equally impressive, including a Micro-HDMI output, a 3.5 mm stereo microphone input, and a USB-C input/output that supports USB 2.0. These features enhance its functionality, allowing for easy external recording and efficient data transfer. Wireless connectivity is facilitated through Wi-Fi, enabling quick sharing of images and videos to a paired smartphone.

In addition, for those wanting to capture fast action, its capability for continuous shooting at up to 6.5 fps with an electronic shutter allows for capturing fast-moving subjects with ease. Internally, the camera records using the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC 8-bit format, striking a balance between high-quality output and manageable file sizes. In essence, the EOS R100's specifications reflect a thoughtfully designed camera, tailored for modern, high-paced photography and videography needs.
