The Canon EOS R100 is the newest and cheapest addition to Canon’s APS-C mirrorless camera range. It’s designed to be an ideal entry-level camera for both photographers and vloggers, but that’s exactly the market Nikon is aiming at with the Z30.

The Canon EOS R100 and Nikon Z30 have a lot in common. They have a similar price point, can be bought with compact kit lenses for easy packing and travel, and use lens mounts they share in common with full-frame mirrorless cameras further up the range.
