The Canon EOS M200, which is available in black, is particularly stylish and extremely versatile, combining a wide variety of shooting skills with a practical form factor. The M200 is equipped with a 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 8 image processor, which allows for high-resolution still photography as well as a 6.1-frames-per-second continuous shooting rate and a wide ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range to accommodate working in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, UHD 4K video recording and in-camera 4K time-lapse movie creation are enabled for a creative fusion of stills and video. Additionally, the sensor’s architecture allows for Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which employs phase-detection focusing to deliver rapid, accurate, and smooth performance that is suitable for both stills and video shooting.
Additionally, the M200’s small design has a 3.0″ 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD for simple shooting control, which complements the camera’s image capabilities. The screen includes a 180-degree tilting design as well, which is beneficial for taking selfies as well as working from high and low angles. The built-in WiFi with NFC enables for quick and simple connection with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is included for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.
APS-C CMOS sensor with 24.1MP resolution and DIGIC 8 image processor
In order to provide excellent sensitivity and rapid camera performance for both stills and video applications, the camera has a 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 8 image processor. The ISO range of 100-25600 is suitable for working in a variety of lighting circumstances, and the processing capabilities decrease noise while allowing Auto Lighting Optimizer to provide significant clarity in a variety of shooting situations, among other things. UHD 4K video recording at 23.98 frames per second is also enabled, as are Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 settings for slow motion recording, as well as Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 settings for fast motion recording. Aside from that, the CPU allows for a continuous shooting rate of 6.1 frames per second, a quick camera startup time, and short interval durations between each frame, all of which contribute to a more intuitive and efficient shooting procedure.
CMOS AF with Dual Pixels
A similar mechanism to that used by a camcorder to acquire focus is used by Dual Pixel CMOS AF to provide smooth and quick focusing performance. Using two distinct photodiodes integrated inside each pixel, this technology creates a broad and dense network of phase-detection collecting elements across a large portion of the image sensor, reducing focus chasing and allowing for faster and more direct control of focus placement in the picture. Although it is designed for still pictures, this focusing system is equally adept at acquiring critical focus on moving things, making it particularly well suited for shooting and monitoring moving subjects to ensure that critical focus is achieved with each shot. It is also possible to employ Eye Detection AF for portraiture, which helps to prioritize focus on a subject’s eye to ensure clarity in the final image.
Using Movie Servo Autofocus when recording video, you may achieve smooth and natural focusing when switching between several objects of varying distances within a scene. You can also customize the tracking sensitivity and speed, as well as the importance is given to Face Tracking when shooting video. Rack focus is made possible thanks to the Touch AF technology, which allows you to adjust the focus by merely touching anything within the scene on the touchscreen in an easy manner. It is also possible to achieve better subject tracking in movies, thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system’s ability to detect subjects and keep focus even while operating in rapidly changing or crowded environments.
- Intuitive control of focusing points, menu navigation, and image evaluation are all made possible by the large 3.0″ touchscreen LCD display. This screen also has a 180-degree up and 45-degree down tilting design, which makes it easier to take self-portraits and work from high and low angles as necessary.
- Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC makes it simple to wirelessly share photographs and videos with a connected mobile device through the Internet.
- Bluetooth allows you to connect a smartphone or tablet to another device in order to share images quickly and automatically between them, as well as to operate them remotely.
- When operating in low-light circumstances, the built-in pop-up flash offers extra lighting for the user.
- According to the manufacturer, the included LP-E12 battery produces about 315 photos per charge when used with regular settings and 485 shots per charge when used with Eco Mode.
