New EOS 200D claims to be the world’s lightest DSLR with the world’s fastest AF
Goo d things come in small packages, so it’s said (usually by
short people). So we have big expectations of the EOS 100D’s successor. The EOS 200D (or Rebel SL2 in the US) packs a variangle touchscreen with Canon’s impressive Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus; the latest Digic 7 processor; and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to enable sharing of images to social media via the Canon Camera Connect app.
Designed to appeal to smartphone photographers who may never have touched a DSLR before, the EOS 200D includes Guided UI, an interface that explains the effect that changing settings will have. This can be deactivated as your experience grows. It’s also the first Canon DSLR to come with a selfie mode, complete with skin smoothing and background blurring. www.canon.co.uk; £579.99 (black body only); £649.99 (18-55mm DC kit – black only); £679.99 (18-55mm STM kit – all colours)
