Nice cam­era. What’s the story?

Oh boy, do we have a treat for all you smart­phone cam­era fa­nat­ics! Canon has de­signed its new DSLR es­pe­cially for you. Yes, the EOS 200D sports in­tu­itive con­trols and a touch­screen rem­i­nis­cent of that on your smart­phone – ideal for those tran­si­tion­ing to a meatier cam­era.

How meaty? I don’t want to lug around any­thing heavy.

And you won’t – Canon reck­ons the EOS 200D is now the light­est DSLR in the world. The black edi­tion (it also comes in white and sil­ver) weighs 453g, in­clud­ing bat­tery and card. So you can take it on hol­i­days and to par­ties with­out feel­ing like you’re car­ry­ing a brick.

Will it take good pics?

Yep. Canon’s de­signed this shooter to cap­ture 24.2MP pho­tos that burst with colour and de­tail. There’s a DIGIC 7 pro­ces­sor for nail­ing pho­tos in low-light con­di­tions, plus a Dual Pixel CMOS aut­o­fo­cus for su­per-fast Live View fo­cus­ing – that con­tin­u­ous fo­cus­ing is also amaz­ing when cap­tur­ing Full HD footage at 60fps.

Con­fes­sion: I of­ten end up with blurry photographs. Can this help?

The EOS 200D has your back here, too: a large APS-C sen­sor makes easy work of shoot­ing with shal­low depth of field (ideal for por­traits). If you in­ten­tion­ally want some back­ground blur, that sen­sor will keep your sub­ject’s face look­ing sharp in the fore­front.

Okay, I’m in! When can I buy this?

The Canon EOS 200D is avail­able to pre-or­der this month and to buy this Au­gust.

Photo cl ass Never used a DSLR?

With a ton of shoot­ing modes to use, in­clud­ing Sports, Food and Can­dle­light, you’ll have many images you’ll be proud to share
