Canon EOS M200

24MP APS-C CMOS sensor | Dual Pixel AF | Tilting touchscreen LCD

What we like:

  • Pleasant JPEG colors
  • Excellent Dual Pixel AF system
  • Compact, with touchscreen-focused interface

What we don't:

  • Significant 4K crop
  • No viewfinder
  • Limited lens selection
The Canon EOS M200 is an entry-level mirrorless camera that uses Canon's EF-M lens mount. It features a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel autofocus system and is typically bundled with a compact 15-45mm lens.
The M200 is compact and lightweight, with a flip-up touchscreen display. Most camera features can be operated via the display and, as a result, there are few physical controls. The M200 is easy-to-use, with an interface that will make smartphone users feel at home. Those who desire a viewfinder will have to look elsewhere.

The M200's autofocus performance improves upon its predecessor with eye detection for human subjects. In our experience, focus speeds and subject acquisition are snappy, and subject tracking is good but not class-leading. The M200's battery life rating of 315 shots per charge is respectable.
The M200's time-tested 24MP sensor is a great performer in both bright and low light. Canon's JPEGs always have pleasing colors, and Raw files should allow shadows to be brightened without a major noise penalty.
The M200 can capture 4K/24p video, as well as 1080/60p. Video quality is like that of its sibling, the EOS M50, so expect 4K to be pretty soft. A more significant issue is the 1.6x crop when shooting 4K, making wide-angle shooting very challenging.
The EOS M200 is a capable, inexpensive and easy-to-use compact mirrorless camera. Its image quality and autofocus performance are solid, its video performance is passable, and it's an excellent option for new users looking for their first dedicated camera.
