The latest mirrorless camera aimed at content creators called the Canon EOS M200 has just been officially launched in the Philippines at this year's Canon Photomarathon 2019 that was held at SM Mall of Asia on October 19. Though no official pricing was revealed yet at the event, we were told it would be released in about two weeks time from now.

This new mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is compact and lightweight only measuring approximately 108.2 x 67.1 x 35.1 mm in dimensions and about 299 grams in weight. Without the kit lens attached to it, the EOS M200 can easily fit in the pocket. And since this is an interchangeable lens camera, it supports the wide range of Canon's EF-M lenses to help you explore more of your creativity.


This camera is perfect for those looking to up their social media game from smartphone photography to delivery higher quality image and videos to their friends, fans, and followers. Also one of the perfect choices for enthusiasts who would like to dive into photography for the very first time but does not want to get too intimidated by its functions, settings, and features.

"In today's social media age, we understand the demand to deliver high quality content that will stand out and in an instant. With the EOS M200, achieving feed-worthy content is now easier and faster. Canon's latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera has enhanced features designed to elevate users' photo and video content creation on the go," shared Mr. Benny Yu, Head of Consumer Imaging and Information Division, Canon Marketing Philippines Inc.

Like its predecessor, the EOS M100, this new EOS M200 has the that excellent 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor that delivers high quality photos and videos. But what makes this particular model even more attractive than the previous iteration, is that it now packs the new DIGIC 8 image processor which comes with a couple of new cool features for content creation. With it are the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF which includes Eye Detection AF both for video and photo, ISO speed now up to 25600, and 4K video recording at 24 fps though with a 1.6 time crop. In addition, it can now record videos in vertical orientation automatically when flipped, so if you are a type of creator who works on this format such as for IG TV or stories, this is now supported without the need to use a third-party edition software. With the EOS M200, Canon as also improved the autofocus zones from 49 to 149 points.


The Canon EOS M200 comes built-in with what the company calls Creative Assist function. This allows users to easily adjust the desired look of photos directly in-camera with intuitive words such as "brightness" and "background blur" without having prior knowledge of shutter speed, aperture, or white balance as sometime those photography jargons are quite intimidating for beginners. In-camera filters are also available with the EOS M200 for more creative options.

And then of course being a camera that is targeted at content creators, a flipping screen is a must. Thanks to its LCD screen that tilts 180 degrees that makes recording video or taking photo of self makes a lot easier. 

Now as for connectivity features, in addition to WiFi option, the EOS M200 supports Bluetooth with low energy consumption as a way to connect to smart devices such as tablets and smartphones. Accessing and transferring of videos and images are going to be easier and more convenient as well.

Pricing and availability of the Canon EOS M200 will be unveiled in the first week of November. It will arrive in black and white color selections.
