Canon's entry-level EOS M200 offers eye detection and 4K video
Canon has introduced the EOS M200, an entry-level mirrorless camera. It's a fairly modest upgrade to one of our favorite cameras, the EOS M100. Its new Digic 8 processor allows for Dual Pixel AF with eye detection, heavily cropped 4K/24p video and improved battery life.
Everything else is the same as before: the M200 has a 24MP APS-C sensor, compact body with a selfie-friendly touchscreen and an easy-to-use interface.
The EOS M200 will be available in October, bundled with the collapsable 15-45mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens for $549/£499/€569.
