Canon EOS M200 Review (admirably beginner friendly, Photography Blog)

Canon EOS M200 Review

Here is a new Canon EOS M200 review.

Photography Blog reviewed the Canon EOS M200, the company’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera. A camera clearly aimed at beginners or people stepping up from smartphone photography.

From their conclusion:

What the EOS M200 has going for it is its intuitiveness. We found it to be one of the easiest interchangeable lens cameras (one of the major benefits over and above use of a smartphone for your photography) to get to grips with from scratch.

For those who want to take their photography slightly more seriously than their smartphone allows, but without investing heavily to do so, the Canon EOS M200 provides a decent point of entry.

As a result this isn’t the most impressive, interesting or innovative Canon camera ever – and some may bemoan the fact that it omits an eye-level viewfinder or even the ability to add one as an optional extra – but the EOS M200 nevertheless fulfills the beginner friendly purpose for which it has been created admirably.

Canon EOS M200 Review (neat little budget camera, ePHOTOzine)

Canon EOS M200 Review

ePHOTOzine posted their Canon EOS M200 review.

From the verdict:

The Canon EOS M200 is a neat little budget mirrorless camera, with a range of matching budget lenses that make it an easy to use compact system. If you want to access more advanced controls it can be time-consuming (several button presses and menus need to be scrolled through to find the switch between MF and AF), but it’s not really designed for advanced shooters, so this can be forgiven. 

[…]

For those looking for an easy-to-use, compact, “point-and-shoot” style mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS M200 could be an excellent option, particularly as it’s got the same colour reproduction as other Canon EOS cameras and a 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor. We liked shooting with the camera, even though, it’s not designed for the traditional photographer, it’s simplicity and ease of use makes for a somewhat fun camera to simply use, and not worry too much about.

Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review (particularly good for street & travel, Photography Blog)

Canon Eos M6 Mark Ii

Photography Blog posted their full Canon EOS M6 Mark II review. The EOS M6 Mark II is Canon’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera.

From the conclusion of the Canon EOS M6 Mark II review:

If you’re looking to get into interchangeable lens photography to exert a little more control over image functions and settings than your smartphone will allow, then the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a good and straightforward enough place to start.

It allows you to begin your photographic ‘journey’ by pointing and shooting, before then gradually work your way around more precise manual controls as your understanding of the camera and personal skillset improves.

This camera is particularly good for street and travel photography, where its swift auto focusing, subject tracking, compact size and unobtrusive looks work in the photographer’s favour.

Press release:

Simply incredible, incredibly simple: professional-looking photos are effortless with the Canon EOS M200 

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Wednesday 25 September 2019: Canon Europe announces the highly anticipated successor to the hugely popular 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. Complete with a guided user interface, boundless creative functions and vertical movie shooting, it has never been easier to step up from a smartphone and start sharing stand-out images and video with the world.

Capture sharp and striking images effortlessly

Superior storytelling is made effortless with the Canon EOS M200. Its guided user interface is perfect for first-time camera users, with useful on-screen guidance as well as hints and tips on how to get the best results. The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images that look sharp and striking, 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 pleasing background blur – perfect for capturing pin-sharp memories at a party, festival or concert with low-light AF sensitivity down to EV-4. The addition of Eye Detection AF also makes capturing the natural expressions of friends and family simple, by automatically maintaining focus on a subject’s eyes.

The introduction of Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, delivers new functionality as well as great quality. With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), DIGIC 8 guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations, such as a bar or music venue.

DIGIC 8 also adds a new dimension to storytelling, powering 4K movie for the highest level of movie clarity. The Canon EOS M200 takes the storytelling potential one step further with a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies, perfect for capturing memories in detail.

The LCD touchscreen on the Canon EOS M200 flips 180 degrees, helping elevate selfies beyond what is achievable with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also 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, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.

Unlock your creativity:

The Canon EOS M200 features an array of settings and tools empowering those stepping up from a smartphone to capture memories in artistic and imaginative ways. It 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.

Compatibility with the affordable and creative range of EF-M lenses expands the potential of the Canon EOS M200 even further. A variety of image expressions are made possible with wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses EF-M lenses and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.

Share special moments anywhere, anytime

Once content has been captured, customised and is ready to be shared with the world, the Canon EOS M200 connects seamlessly with smart devices¹ via Bluetooth®² 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, perfect for capturing group shots or a hands-free selfie.
