OMG! I can’t believe this! Canon Marketing (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. has officially launched the new Canon EOS M10 x Rilakkuma bundle, which brings you the lightest camera in the compact series and the ever popular Rilakkuma to bring Nui-Dori or more commonly known as ToyTravel to every fun loving social media user and photographer out there and make their next travel adventure a more memorable one.
The EOS M10 is the newest addition to Canon’s EOS M range of high performance mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. Equipped with an 18.0megapixel APS-C sensor and fast Hybrid CMOS AF II system, users can now capture excellent quality photos of spontaneous moments.
If you’re into snapping selfies, this is the perfect camera for you. It has an LCD monitor that tilts 180 degrees upwards which makes it easier to take selfies. The Self Portrait mode features a one-touch beautification shortcut that offers a skin smoothing effect. It’s Wi-Fi feature also allows seamless sharing on multiple social media platforms.
The camera feels slightly heavy but you can still hold it comfortably in one hand for selfies. The size is perfect for travelling and I wouldn’t have to lug my bulky DSLR around which can be annoying and inconvenient at times. The autofocus is fast, so if there’s something you want to take a picture of really quickly, this will do the job.
If you’re a huge fan of Rilakkuma like myself, you can try your luck by joining the Canon #ToyTravel Photo Challenge. You might just get Rilakkuma as your next travelling companion. All you need to do is take pictures according to the different contest themes each month starting from June till August. The winner of each theme stands to win an EOS M10 kit (EF-M15-45mm) along with a 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy!

What is ToyTravel? It is the art of photography where toys imitate life. Inject creativity and fun into your everyday adventures with a preferred animated object – from a figurine in a bowl of cereal, to a stuffed toy strapped into an airplane seat.
Did you watch the video? Did you?! DID YOU?!! Isn’t Rilakkuma just adorable? I want a companion like that too.
The EOS M10 kit (with EF-M15-45mm) is priced at RM1,999. But if you’re a Rilakkuma fan, you can consider the special edition EOS M10 box set, bundled with a limited edition 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy, priced at RM2,049.
