LCD and Viewfinder
Canon M10 has a Tilting 3″ LCD screen with a resolution of 1,040k dots. Both the screen size and the screen resolution is up to the standards of this class.
LCD is Touch screen type, so you can change the settings and set the focus point with your fingertips. For those of you who loves shooting self portraits or group photos, Canon M10 will make your life easier with its selfie friendly screen.
M10 doesn't have a viewfinder and no option for external viewfinder. Lack of a viewfinder can be problematic especially under strong light where visibility of LCD screens goes down dramatically. If you need a Mirrorless camera with a built-in viewfinder in a similar price range, consider Hasselblad X1D (Compare) or Olympus OM-D E-M10 II (Compare). If the price is not an issue, take a look at our Top Rated Cameras with Viewfinders.
