The Canon EOS M200 is designed to deliver such engaging content that connects with users and creates an immersive experience on the go. We are positive that it will elevate the photography experience of the social media generation, allowing them to create content of a higher quality for digital platforms.”
Advanced Dual Pixel 24. 1 Megapixel Sensor and Powerful DIGIC 8 image processor
EOS M200 has an advanced 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor which when coupled with Canon’s powerful DIGIC 8 image processor allows users to capture high resolution images and 4K video with rich dynamic colours and the finest details. The ultra-fast DIGIC-8 processor ensures high image quality even in low light with minimum noise and grain, while performing multiple enhancements on both still and video so you always get the best possible output.
Cinematic 4K video and 4K time-lapse movie
EOS M200 lets you capture cinematic 4K video with a frame rate up-to 24p. With the built-in time lapse mode you can create beautiful time-lapse videos in stunning 4K resolution. This allows content creators to experiment with creating high-definition 4K content.
Due to the fact that most social content is consumed on mobile these days, content with vertical orientation is key. The EOS M200 is very social-friendly, particularly Instagram and creates amazing vertical videos which can played vertically on smartphones without the need of any editing apps. This cuts down on processing time since content can be created and posted on-the-go.
Dual PIXEL CMOS AF with Eye Detection AF
The EOS M200 is capable of fast and accurate autofocus using Canon’s proprietary Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus. The advanced Eye Detection AF ensures that the subject’s eyes are always in focus and continually tracks moving subjects in this way. This feature works for both photos and video and is great for Vloggers and anybody who is capturing people, portraits or street photography.
The EOS M200 features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing seamless connection to smart devices (smartphones and tablets) using the Canon Camera Connect app. The Bluetooth connection method is BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), which allows a permanent connection to your smartphone with minimal battery drain. The best part is, the camera switches automatically between these two connections depending on usage. You can tether the EOS M200 and shoot remotely using your phone. Or you could transfer images and video automatically from camera to phone for immediate upload to social media sites/apps.
Optical Excellence with wide range of Canon lenses
EOS M200’s photographic excellence can be expanded with a wide range of high quality yet compact Canon M Series lenses. With the optional EF Mount adapter users can also take advantage of Canon’s unmatched range of EF/EF-S lenses. This makes the EOS M200 a content creators dream.
