Canon M10 Sports Photography Detailed Analysis
Fast Max shutter speed: 1/4000s
Canon M10's 1/4000s shutter speed is fast enough to freeze any almost all sports action and is also helpful when you use a fast lens at largest aperture under bright sunlight. 49 Focus Points
In sports photography , you keep continuous autofocus (AFC) mode on for tracking the subject and more focus means better tracking. Wireless Connection
It may not be used by everyone but pro sports photographers use Wi-fi to transfer files simultaneously without having to wait to change the memory card.
Average Continuous Shooting: 4.6fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better. Average Ergonomics&Handling
although not as good as a DSLR body, Canon M10 is good enough for most conditions.
Most outdoor sports games are held in all-weather, so your camera has to be ready for difficult conditions such as rain and snow. Exposure to dust and water splashes are also very common in sports. Poor Battery Life: 255 shots
In most sports events, you shoot at high speed for a long time and this drains the battery pretty quick. With a battery life of only 255 shots per charge, you may need to change batteries very frequently in the middle of an event. No Built-in Viewfinder
In the lack of a a viewfinder, holding the camera away from the body while using live view is not very stable, especial with heavy camera bodies and lenses. Besides, LCD screens are very hard to read under bright sunlight. No Image Stabilization
Due to the lack of sensor based Image stabilization, Canon M10 users have to rely on lenses with optical IS in order to maximize the sharpness of their sports photography photos. Currently there are native Canon EF-M mount lenses with Image Stabilization for Canon M10.
