Canon has unveiled the entry-level mirrorless EOS M200—which is a follow-up to the EOS M100 from just over two years ago. The new model retains the 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor as its predecessor, but its updated Digic 8 processor brings two headline features: Dual Pixel eye-detect AF and 4K/24p video. Canon also claims improved battery life.
Everything else remains the same: The control placement hasn’t changed and there’s only the slightest rounding of the corners, so it’s quite possible that underwater housings for the EOS M100 will work with the new model.
Before you get too excited about the new 4K capability, you should be aware that it comes with a 1.6x crop. Add (or rather multiply) the 1.6x crop of APS-C and you end up with a hefty 2.56x crop, which will limit wide-angle shooting so much as to make it essentially unusable. If you want to shoot the big stuff, you’ll have to stick with Full HD—uncropped and up to 60p.
The EOS M200—bundled with the 15–45mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM lens—will be on shelves in October priced at $550 (as opposed to the $600 mentioned in the press release). Like its predecessor, it will be available in black or white.
