Canon has unveiled a new addition to its range of mirrorless camera announcing its successor to the EOS M100 with the launch of the aptly named Canon EOS M200. Equipped with a 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor the same as the previous version the new cameras equipped with a number of new features including Dual Pixel eye-detect autofocus and 4K, 24p video but only at a 1.6 times crop. The Canon EOS M200 interchangeable lens camera comes complete with a EF-M 15-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens, but the 4K cropping limits the use of the Canon EOS M200 as a vlogging camera although it can shoot vertical video if required.
“The EOS M200 camera lets you shoot with Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast, accurate autofocus that helps you get the photo you want right as the moment happens. This means fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease.”
The EOS M200 will be officially available to purchase next month in either black or white priced at $549 or £499 depending on your location. “The EOS M200 camera features an expansive focus area of approx. 88% horizontal and 100% vertical when working with select EF-M lenses (and select EF and EF-S lenses with the optional EF-EOS M adapter). With other EF-M (or EF and EF-S) lenses, the M200 camera focuses approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically. This means fast and impressive focusing even if your subject is way off center.”
