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, 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. 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, while 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.
