Canon Malaysia has announced the latest addition to the EOS mirrorless interchangeable lens camera line-up: the Canon EOS M200. A compact and intuitive camera, the Canon EOS M200 is perfect for those
looking to up their game from smartphone photography to higher quality images and videos. The camera is also ideal for users wanting higher quality selfie stills and videos or enthusiasts who wish to embark on their photography journey.
“The social media platform has allowed everyone to share photos and videos anytime, anywhere. In an age of visual storytelling, high-quality images and videos are more likely to spread and be seen by many. The Canon EOS M200 is designed for users to create engaging content that vividly connects to their audience and share immersive experience easily instantaneously on the go.”
Albert Mah, Head of Imaging Consumer Products (ICP) of Canon Marketing Malaysia.
Stills and videos that stand out
At the heart of the Canon EOS M200 is a 24.1megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which is proprietary to Canon, has been improved and the number of AF zones available for automatic selection has expanded to a maximum of 143 points, with approximately 88% horizontal coverage and approximately 100% vertical coverage (depending on compatible lenses).
Being an interchangeable lens camera, users have the flexibility of selecting different EF-M lenses for various purposes, be it for macro, portrait, wide angle or telephoto shots. The camera can also be adapted to use Canon’s existing line-up of EF/EF-S lenses, which opens up a wide range of possibilities.
With the new DIGIC 8 image processor, ISO capabilities have been enhanced on the Canon EOS M200 and a maximum ISO speed of ISO 25600 (expandable to ISO 51200) is achievable for still images. This makes capturing clear images in dark locations possible.
The Canon EOS M200 is also capable of shooting 4K videos at a smooth 24p and 25p, with high image clarity and blurred background expression.
Stylish design and useful features
Designed to be slim and lightweight, the Canon EOS M200 body weighs approximately 299g and can easily fit into bags. With two colours to choose from, the black Canon EOS M200 comes in a premium matte finish whereas the white Canon EOS M200 is designed with a textured grip and a sleek silver ascend on the top body. Crafted to take on an ergonomic shape and designed to be intuitive to operate, the Canon EOS M200 sports an intuitive three mode dial on the top, with button layout positioned around the shutter button.
In addition to Wi-Fi, the Canon EOS M200 supports Bluetooth connection as a way to connect to smart devices such as smartphones and tablets. Users can transfer images via Wi-Fi connection from the Canon EOS M200 to a smartdevice in two ways: the conventional method of transferring only selected images or send images to the smart device simultaneously while shooting.
The new Canon EOS M200 is available starting from 10 October 2019 at all Canon authorized dealers nationwide.
