Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

JUST IN CASE you thought Canon might be turn­ing mir­ror­less, it’s been busy re­fresh­ing its D-SLR range with four new mod­els an­nounced over the last few months. At the same time as it un­veiled the EOS 6D Mark II, Canon also took the op­por­tu­nity to up­grade an­other one of its en­try-level D-SLRs, re­plac­ing the EOS 100D with the 200D.

Built around a more com­pact GRP bodyshell to at­tract first-time users, the 200D has a

Like the other re­cent ad­di­tions to Canon’s en­trylevel D-SLR line-up, it has the ‘Guided Dis­play’ user in­ter­face, more graph­ics-based to help be­gin­ners un­der­stand the ef­fects of chang­ing set­tings.

The sen­sor in­cor­po­rates Canon’s ‘Dual Pixel CMOS AF’ de­sign to en­able phase-dif­fer­ence de­tec­tion aut­o­fo­cus­ing in live view and for shoot­ing video. The op­ti­cal AF sys­tem em­ploys nine mea­sur­ing points and ex­po­sure con­trol is based on a 7560-pixel ‘RGB+IR’ sen­sor which drives 63zone eval­u­a­tive me­ter­ing. Se­lec­tive area, spot and cen­tre-weighted mea­sure­ments are also avail­able. The shut­ter speed range is 30-1/4000 se­cond with flash sync up to 1/200 se­cond. The 200D’s built-in flash has a met­ric guide num­ber of 9.8 (at ISO 100).

The cam­era’s TFT LCD mon­i­tor screen is ad­justable for both tilt and swing, and pro­vides touch con­trols in­clud­ing shut­ter re­lease. It’s also ad­justable for bright­ness and has a res­o­lu­tion of 1.04 megadots. Other fea­tures in­clude a set of ten ‘Cre­ative Fil­ter’ ef­fects, con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing at up to 5.0 fps, auto ex­po­sure brack­et­ing, built-in lens cor­rec­tions, multi-shot HDR cap­ture and both WiFi and Blue­tooth wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity.

The EOS 200D records Full HD video with stereo sound in the MP4 for­mat at 50, 25 or 24 fps and the op­tion of IPB or IPB Light com­pres­sion regimes. The ‘Dual Pixel CMOS AF’ pro­vides fo­cus­ing track­ing and face recog­ni­tion with the choice of one-point or zone area modes.

The EOS 200D is pack­aged with Canon’s new and more com­pact EF-S 18-55mm f4.0-5.6 IS STM stan­dard zoom lens (there’s no body-only pur­chase op­tion at the mo­ment). For more in­for­ma­tion visit

24.2 megapix­els (ef­fec­tive) ‘APS-C’ sen­sor mated with Canon’s lat­est gen­er­a­tion ‘DiG!C 7’ processor. The sen­si­tiv­ity range is equiv­a­lent to ISO 100 to 25,600 with a one-stop ex­ten­sion set­ting up to ISO 51,200.
