Creative Expression & Style with the new Canon EOS 200D

With cutting-edge and intuitive features housed in a compact and sleek design, the new entry-level Canon EOS 200D exemplifies the successful fusion of stylish form and superb functions to achieve superior image quality.

Canon today announced the launch of the EOS 200D, the newest addition to the EOS DSLR range that defies the design notion of traditional DSLR models with its trendy, light and compact form that makes DSLR photography a cinch to master.

Capturing Moments with Agility and Precision

Powered by advanced imaging technology and features, the EOS 200D will appeal to both non-camera users and aspiring photography enthusiasts.

Equipped with a high-resolution 24.2-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor, users will be able to achieve crisp pictures with the flexibility of cropping images without compromising on image quality.

With the latest DIGIC 7 image processor, the standard ISO speed reaches 25600.

This helps in reducing motion blur caused by slow shutter speeds, which is common especially under low light conditions.

Some examples include capturing children at play in the evenings, or shooting an indoor sporting activity.

Users can achieve extremely fast focusing during Live View and movie shooting, with the Canon-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

The Live View Servo AF allows users to track the subject constantly and shoot at a continuous shooting speed of up to 3.5 frames per second (fps).

A quieter and smoother video footage can also be achieved when paired with a lens with Stepping Motor (STM).

Canon EOS 200D is available in “Trendy White” and “Sophisticated Silver”.

Additionally, AF speed can be adjusted to suit more sophisticated shots such as slower focus shifts to create softer effects.

Equipped with a Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor, the fully articulated screen allows users to experiment with creative image compositions from diverse angles.

The combination of Vari-angle LCD monitor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF further enables the EOS 200D to deliver smooth and expressive movies in full HD quality at 60p.

Ergonomic Design and User-Friendly Interface for Intuitive Operation

With the pictorial user interface, beginners to DSLR photography will find it a breeze to navigate through the functions of the EOS 200D.

Via the “how-to” tips for smart shooting guide on the graphic user interface, beginners can also easily pick up more skills and tap on the capabilities of the EOS 200D.

“The EOS 200D redefines the traditional notion of a DSLR with its stylish outlook and ease of use, while delivering superior imaging performance. With its user-friendly pictorial interface and seamless connectivity, users will find it a breeze to navigate through the functions and share the captivating images taken instantly,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore.

With just a single touch on the menu screen, stunning selfies can be achieved. In the Selfie Mode, settings such as background defocus, brightness and smooth skin effect are automatically adjusted to frame the best selfies.

Coupled with the Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor, users will have flexibility to compose their shots from different angles and find it easy to achieve good quality self-portraits.

The compact camera body is designed to provide an enhanced grip to ensure a secure grasp.

Additionally, its body is overlaid with a grain-finish for a premium feel.

To conform to the smooth outline of the camera body and reduce protrusions, the mode dial now fits seamlessly to the camera’s surface.

Additionally, the internal structure of the EOS 200D is also remodeled to achieve the compact and nimble form for better design integration. For example, the circuit board for flash was downsized to keep the weight light.

Easy Connectivity and Sharing

With Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, users can transfer images and videos from EOS 200D to smart devices and upload them onto the Canon Image Gateway, social media platforms and cloud storage.
