EOS M200 has been announced by Canon. It’s an updated camera replacing the EOS M100 launched in 2017.
EOS M200 takes many of the great features from the EOS M50, and brings them down to a keener price point. As an update on the EOS M100 there’s better face and eye-tracking AF, improved battery life, 4K video support and vertical video recording which was first seen in the PowerShot G7X Mark III.
In the hand the controls are very similar, with the movie record button being moved from the top of the camera to the rear. Though if you shoot video there’s a start/stop recording button displayed on the LCD, ideal for vlogging yourself. With 24MP CMOS image sensor and a DIGIC 8 processor you get a slight improvement in quality over the outgoing M100. Pricing in the UK is set at £499 with the EF-M 15-45mm standard zoom lens and there are both black and white versions of the camera.
Canon press release
Simply incredible, incredibly simple: professional-looking photos are effortless with the Canon EOS M200
London, England – Wednesday 25th September 2019: Canon Europe announces the highly anticipated successor to the hugely popular EOS M100 – the Canon EOS M200. Upgrades to this mirrorless camera include the latest Canon DIGIC 8 processor, improved autofocus and the addition of 4K movie. Complete with a guided user interface, boundless creative functions and vertical movie shooting, it has never been easier to step up from a smartphone and start sharing stand-out images and video with the world.
Capture sharp and striking images effortlessly
Superior storytelling is made effortless with the Canon EOS M200. Its guided user interface is perfect for first-time camera users, with useful on-screen guidance as well as hints and tips on how to get the best results. The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images that look sharp and striking, even when cropped or enlarged for sharing on social media.
The camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF – a Canon-developed technology that delivers professional-looking movies and images, by keeping moving subjects in sharp focus with a pleasing background blur – perfect for capturing pin-sharp memories at a party, festival or concert with low-light AF sensitivity down to EV-4. The addition of Eye Detection AF also makes capturing the natural expressions of friends and family simple, by automatically maintaining focus on a subject’s eyes.
The introduction of Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, delivers new functionality as well as great quality. With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), DIGIC 8 guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations, such as a bar or music venue.
DIGIC 8 also adds a new dimension to storytelling, powering 4K movie for the highest level of movie clarity. The Canon EOS M200 takes the storytelling potential one step further with a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies, perfect for capturing memories in detail.
The LCD touchscreen on the Canon EOS M200 flips 180 degrees, helping elevate selfies beyond what is achievable with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be easily adjusted in real time. A first on an EOS camera, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.
Unlock your creativity:
The Canon EOS M200 features an array of settings and tools empowering those stepping up from a smartphone to capture memories in artistic and imaginative ways. It includes Canon’s Creative Assist feature, a suite of effects, filters and colour adjustment tools to apply to photographs when composing an image or after it has been taken. It is also possible to add effects to the photos taken, just like a photo app, with a range of creative filters including Grainy black & white, Fish-eye and Soft Focus.
Compatibility with the affordable and creative range of EF-M lenses expands the potential of the Canon EOS M200 even further. A variety of image expressions are made possible with wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses EF-M lenses and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.
