Canon EOS M series mirrorless cameras have been developed for several years, and the product line There are also single-digit, double-digit and three-digit models, and the main directions are also different. As a “three-digit product” EOS M100 was released in the fall of 2017. The user group is the most entry-level user. What Canon hopes is Use the most simplified shooting logic to promote the concept of “easy to use”. With the development of 5G networks, high-definition video will spread more widely, so the high-definition shooting requirements of digital cameras will also become higher and higher.

1. Canon EOS M200 Appearance Evaluation
Since is the main product of youthful entry-levelization, the appearance must be liked by young people. The EOS M100 launched at that time gave me the feeling that it was gentle and quiet, like a little girl with watery spirit, charming and timeless. EOS M200 inherits this feeling, white and flawless, as calm as autumn water.
do not hide from you As a boy, Mr. S will be deeply moved and surrendered when he sees such a beautiful camera. Canon EOS M200, as a 24.1 million pixel APS-C format CMOS micro-single, has an extremely lightweight body weight of only 262g, and a width and height of 108.2*67.1*35.1mm, which are enough to prove that it is better than ordinary micro-single The camera has a greater advantage.
Canon EOS M200 Still equipped with Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 image processor, it helps to record clearer and richer image details when taking photos. The ISO of EOS M200 reaches ISO 25600, and the DIGIC 8 image processor can suppress the noise generated by the image even at high ISO. Users can rest assured to use it to shoot night scenes.
Canon EOS M200 Different from the professional EOS M model, it does not have too many operating dials on the top of the fuselage. There are only three icons that can be clearly distinguished. They are fully automatic mode, camera mode and video mode. Even the switch is used. Button form. This design is very close to the habits of entry users and needs to be very clear, so the body has become more concise and beautiful.
The flip screen of Canon EOS M200 is 3 inches 1.04 million dots, which can be folded directly upward by about 180 degrees, which is convenient for users Selfie or record vlog video. This screen also supports touch focus and touch shutter, and users can operate like a smart phone.
and the body The operation buttons on the back are basically the same as those of EOS M100. The difference is that the original one-click WiFi image transfer button has been changed to an instant video recording button. This EOS M200 supports full-pixel dual-core phase difference detection and contrast detection focusing, which greatly enhances the video shooting performance. The video recording button on the top can indeed be moved to the back, making recording faster and more convenient.
If you look carefully, you will find that the surface texture of the EOS M200 is different from the EOS M100. EOS M100 presents regular lines, while EOS M200 has irregular lines. Personally, Mr. S prefers this texture style of EOS M200.
Canon EOS M200 With manual pop-up flash, used to fill light in dim scenes. The flash has different functions in different situations. Some people simply think it is only used to fill light, but in fact, some retro-style shooting creations also need it. Personally, Mr. S thinks it is very useful.
Canon EOS M200 is equipped with USB and HDMI ports on the left side of the fuselage, in terms of data transmission and HD output functions Don’t worry. And below is the memory card slot that supports SDHC/SDXC. I personally find it more convenient than sharing the battery and SD compartment.
body right The side is quite simple, only one speaker is seen. What makes me feel a little regretful is that this upgrade is not equipped with a professional 3.5mm microphone interface. Due to the different positioning, the general shooting needs to use the in-camera radio. .
Canon EOS M200 The battery used is a compact LP-E12, which can take more than 300 shots in a single shot. If you plan to use it intensively, it is recommended to equip two more batteries for long-term use.
is simple and easy The Canon EOS M200 used with the retractable kit lens EF-M 15-45 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM has a very compact overall performance, which is most suitable for people traveling and shooting. Next, we will evaluate EOS M200 in terms of function and performance.
Second, Canon EOS M200 noise evaluation test
The Canon EOS M200 uses 24.1 million pixel CMOS and DIGIC 8 image processor, in the dark It is easy to produce a lot of noise when shooting in the environment, but the DIGIC 8 image processor has a very powerful processing performance, which can eliminate noise and enhance the camera’s focus tracking performance. Let’s first test the image quality performance at each ISO!
Canon EOS M200, like the previously released EOS 90D or EOS M6 Mark II, maintains a high imaging level and noise control ability.
3. Canon EOS M200 focus evaluation
An easy-to-use camera not only lies in its fine image quality, but also more importantly It is necessary to have a useful focusing system. Canon EOS M200 uses full-pixel dual-core CMOS AF technology, with a screen coverage of 88% x 100%, and powerful face detection and eye detection technologies, so that your focus can be locked at all times without losing focus. More importantly, such a focusing system can be used in 4K movie shooting, which makes the EOS M200’s video capabilities more powerful. Let’s take a look at it!
4K Face and eye detection in movie mode
As shown in the figure, I turned on 4K movie shooting mode, turned on face detection and eye detection to record, The EOS M200 can recognize the person on the screen whether he sees the lens or not and lock the focus tightly. In addition, Canon EOS M200 has a dual detection IS function, if it is turned on when shooting a movie, even if you are walking while shooting, the image shake can be easily eliminated! This is so easy to use!
In addition, this focusing system can also allow users to focus and shoot in low light. EOS M200 natively supports ISO 25600, which allows users to take photos in low light. This environment is completely stress-free. We came to the dim office to take a real test——
Face and eye detection in dimly lit environments
So, whether you like to take photos or record videos, Canon With mature focusing technology, you don’t have to worry about focusing at all. Canon’s full-pixel dual-core CMOS AF technology is very mature, even the entry-level EOS M200 can enjoy this technology, and it is indeed a very good choice for users. If you only take still photos, you can also drag and drop the focus frame, so I think it’s much easier than the previous choice of focus point.
Fourth, Canon EOS M200 function evaluation
Many families have pets. And when we want to take photos when we find them cute, we will be “clicked” by our camera, which alarms the alert pets. At this time, a “silent shutter” is very important and practical.
Canon EOS M200 Due to the super simple design, it is not like other SLRs that can directly select the scene mode in the dial. But users don’t have to worry, because it’s simple, it becomes simple, as long as our camera is in the photo shooting mode, you can directly select “Silent Shutter” in the upper left corner, you don’t have to find the menu as troublesome.
scene mode There are up to 11 choices, and the silent shutter is just one of them. You can also choose a different scene mode according to your own preferences and needs, and let the camera define the parameters for you, instead of using the aperture, shutter ISO, etc. by yourself. This is also an important performance of EOS M200’s simplicity and ease of use.
can adjust the degree of automation according to your needs
Canon EOS M200 is equipped with a reversible touch LCD screen, because it folds up directly Design, so it is especially suitable for users to take selfie photos or shoot Vlog videos. And with the scene mode, you can have a more beautiful background blur effect when taking selfies. Girls’ favorite smoothing function can also be chosen at will. In summary, you don’t need to spend much function at all, you can get the beautiful photos you want according to the simple control interface provided by the camera!
Shooting 4K short films , We are very concerned about whether there will be photos taken in portrait orientation when sharing on a smart phone. Like the Canon PowerShot series, the Canon EOS M200 also adds the “change movie rotation information” function to the menu.
Having said so much, is the 4K picture quality good enough? We recorded two videos separately, because the current mainstream video platforms in China do not support 4K, so let’s just look at the screenshots and compare them with FHD 1080P. You can click to view the 100% big picture directly.

If you just look at the small picture and you can’t see the difference, I will take the first place A set of screenshots using the same vision to compare the details of 4K and 1080P:

1080P resolution becomes 4K image quality
There is no doubt that 4K image quality is Quite amazing, even if there is a certain proportion of picture cropping, it still cannot change the fact that its ultra-clear video quality. With a clearer video picture, your life Vlog can record richer details.
5. Real shots of Canon EOS M200 proofs
Canon EOS M200 features simple and easy-to-use beautiful image quality, so even a pair of photography Users who don’t understand very well can also take nice photos with the help of the guide menu. I took most of the photos below in fully automatic mode. There is no need to worry about parameters at all. You only need to turn on the camera and leave the images to EOS M200 for processing.
is in use When Canon EOS M200, because the machine itself is small enough, there is no burden of weight at all, shooting is easy and free. When shooting portraits with the pre-set beauty mode, you can get beautiful photos without post-retouching at all. The most impressive thing to me is the macro mode. When shooting macro subjects such as flowers, you can get a very beautiful depth of field effect. I can’t tell that it is from an EF-M 15-45mm standard lens. In terms of image quality, 24.1 million pixels are clear enough, and the full-pixel dual-core CMOS AF also ensures rapid focusing. I am already satisfied.
6. PConline evaluation summary
is a digital camera as small and beautiful as the EOS M200. I always think it is more suitable for girls to take pictures when they go out in their daily life, especially if it can be turned up by about 180 degrees. Folded LCD screen. The new 4K video can support 3-axis anti-shake, which is more suitable for users who want to shoot their own Vlog video with a handheld camera. It is stable enough, and the picture quality is good and clear.
For photography, In fact, not everyone is in line with fever-level equipment, and not everyone likes to study the post-processing of the picture in depth. I know a lot of friends who want to buy a camera that looks good, is small and light, and shoots directly. The price of the first kit is about 3,700 yuan. To talk about the cost-effectiveness, I used to tell them that the EOS M100 is a good choice, but now, I recommend the new EOS M200 even more-no other, no increase in the price, it is really fragrant!
