Featuring an APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor and the latest Canon DIGIC 8 processor, the new camera offers improved autofocusing and the addition of 4K movie recording. Its LCD touchscreen flips through 180 degrees and the camera’s Self Portrait mode allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be easily adjusted in real time. In a first for the EOS series, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode and is positioned for easy operation in all screen orientations.

The new camera includes Canon’s Creative Assist feature plus special effects like Grainy black & white, Fish-eye, and Soft Focus. It also connects seamlessly with smart devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app, which also facilitates shooting remotely with a smartphone or tablet. Weighing just 299 grams (including battery and memory card), it is perfect for daily use as it takes up limited bag space.

The Canon EOS M200 will be available from Canon’s online store and official local Canon retailers from February and will be supported by a 5-year local warranty. Click here for more information.
