Canon Middle East has revealed the successor to the 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. It also features a guided user interface, creative functions and vertical movie shooting.
The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images, 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 background blur. It also includes Eye Detection AF which automatically maintains focus on a subject's eyes.
With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations. DIGIC 8 also allows for 4K movie for the highest level of clarity. The Canon EOS M200 features a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies.
The LCD touchscreen flips 180 degrees, and the camera's Self Portrait mode 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. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media.
The Canon EOS M200 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.
The camera is compatible with the range of EF-M lenses, including the wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses, and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.
The Canon EOS M200 connects with smart devices via Bluetooth2 and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app for iOS and Android. From here, images and videos can be downloaded, reviewed and shared manually. Images can also be automatically sent to a smart device as they are taken. As long as the camera is in Bluetooth range, a constant connection to a smart device can be maintained, even when the camera is switched off. The Canon Camera Connect app also facilitates shooting remotely with a smartphone or tablet.
Weighing 299g (including battery and memory card), the Canon EOS M200 is available in black or white with a high quality crosshatch leather pattern. It can even be customised with a range of colourful face jackets.
