Canon EOS M200 Review

The black Canon EOS M200 is incredibly sleek and highly flexible, combining a wide variety of shooting capabilities with an everyday form factor. The M200 features a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor for high-resolution stills, a 6.1 fps continuous shooting rate, and a broad ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range to suit working in a variety of settings. In addition, in-camera 4K time-lapse movie making for a creative blending of stills and video is supported, as is UHD 4K video recording. Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for fast, accurate, and smooth performance in both stills and video, is also made possible by the sensor’s construction.

The M200’s sleek design integrates a 3.0″ 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD for simple shooting control, complements imaging assets. The screen can also be tilted 180 degrees for better selfies and working from high and low angles. Also included is built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for quick and easy connection with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing and Bluetooth for image sharing, and remote camera control from a mobile device.

DIGIC 8 Image Processor and 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor

To deliver excellent sensitivity and rapid camera performance for both stills and video applications, a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor are used. The ISO range of 100-25600 is suitable for working in various lighting circumstances. The processing capabilities reduce noise and enable Auto Lighting Optimizer for the exceptional clarity in different shooting situations. UHD 4K video recording at 23.98 frames per second is also supported, as are Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 settings for slow-motion recording. For a more intuitive and efficient shooting procedure, the CPU also allows for a 6.1 fps continuous shooting rate, a quick camera startup time, and short gap durations between each frame.

CMOS AF with dual pixels

Similar to how a camcorder acquires focus, Dual Pixel CMOS AF provides smooth and rapid focusing performance. This method includes two independent photodiodes into each pixel to generate a large and dense network of phase-detection, gathering elements throughout the bulk of the image sensor, reducing focus chasing and allowing for faster, more direct focus placement management. This focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and correctly when working with still imagery, making it excellent for shooting and tracking moving subjects to achieve crucial focus with each frame. Eye Detection AF, which helps to emphasize focus on a subject’s eye for guaranteed sharpness, can also be employed for portraiture.

A Movie Servo AF mode provides smooth and natural focusing when switching between subjects or distances within a scene and the flexibility to select tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority when recording video. Rack focus is achievable because of the Touch AF feature, which allows you to adjust by merely touching anything inside the scene on the touchscreen. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system’s capacity to distinguish subjects and focus when working in shifting or crowded landscapes also helps with subject tracking in movies.

Wireless Connectivity and Body Design

• A straightforward approach for controlling focusing points, browsing menus, and examining imagery are provided by the large 3.0″ touchscreen LCD. This screen also has a 180° up, 45° down tilting design, making it easier to take self-portraits and work from different angles.

• Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC makes it simple to share photographs and movies with a connected mobile device.

• Bluetooth allows a smartphone or tablet to be connected to another device for automated image sharing and remote control.

• The built-in pop-up flash adds extra light for working in low-light situations.

• With typical settings, the included LP-E12 battery produces about 315 shots each or 485 shots per charge with Eco Mode enabled.

Other Features of Canon eos m200

• Time-lapse Movie mode produces final 4K films from a series of sequentially recorded stills that have been processed in-camera.

• Vertical Video Support allows you to capture videos vertically, which is ideal for posting on social media.

• Dedicated Self Portrait mode includes several tools to aid in the creation of flawless selfies, including skin smoothing, background blurring, and a customized self-timer.

• With real-time results provided, Creative Assist makes it simple to see the consequences of adjusting camera settings. With a dedicated menu, you can fine-tune brightness, contrast, and saturation in this mode.

• The Visual Guide and Feature Assistant demonstrate and explain the various shooting modes to encourage exploration and better understand the camera’s capabilities.

• Silent Mode nearly reduces the shutter sound, allowing you to work in noise-sensitive areas or avoid frightening subjects.

Lens: EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM

canon eos m200 : EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM

The flexible standard zoom EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which gives a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range, is included with the camera body. Throughout the zoom range, three aspherical elements aid in managing chromatic aberrations and distortions, while an optimized lens location helps prevent flare and ghosting. In addition, an Optical Image Stabilizer reduces camera shake by up to 3.5 stops for more apparent handheld shooting, while an STM stepping motor delivers fast, smooth, and near-silent AF performance.

It is beneficial for

New photographers, individuals who want to expand their photography beyond their cellphones, and tourists seeking high image quality in a small package are all candidates.

It’s not ideal for

Photographers need greater hands-on control, such as those who need to picture fast-moving or unpredictable situations regularly.

Conclusion

Overall, the Canon EOS M200 is an excellent camera. Unfortunately, it’s one that, like its predecessor, I believe is a little more than the sum of its parts. For more inexperienced photographers, the M200 is a powerful and economical solution that’s easy to operate and produces high-quality images with minimal effort. However, it won’t be the ideal option for photographing fast-moving or unpredictable subjects like energetic youngsters, thanks to slower burst speeds and slightly hunty autofocus: Sony’s more expensive a6100 is a better bet for specific families photography.

It won’t appeal to every experienced photographer (Canon’s EOS M6 Mark II is a better pick). Still, I find the M200 to be a wonderful escape when I want solid image quality without the weight of a larger camera.

The EOS M200 is an excellent pick if you’re looking for a tiny, casual camera that won’t scare you or your friends, one with good wireless connectivity for simple sharing, and the possibility of adding a lens or two down the road.

We believe the Canon EOS M200 is one of the most approachable cameras on the market today for beginning photographers. It doesn’t have the fastest burst speeds or the best video capture, but it has plenty of resolution, is easy to use, and fits almost perfectly in your pocket. Finally, it’s reasonably priced, and any additional lenses you might need are similarly inexpensive.
