Canon Unveils Budget-Friendly M200 Mirrorless Camera

Canon just unveiled a new entry-level model in its mirrorless camera line: the EOS M200. The Canon EOS M200 features a 24MP APS-C size "crop" image sensor similar to the one in the previous model, the Canon M100 from 2017.

The Canon EOS M200 with the EF-M 15-45mm IS STM kit lens will go on sale in October 2019 for $550, which is a fraction of the price of Canon's top-of-the line EOS R, which has a 30.3MP full frame image sensor and sells for $2299, body only.

While the Canon M200 appears to be very similar to its predecessor (resolution is nearly identical), it adds 4K video shooting, the Digic 8 image processor, eye-detection autofocus, vertical video shooting, and improved connectivity for wirelessly sharing images from the camera on social media.

The Canon M200 will come in black or white options. More details in the official Canon USA press release below.
