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.
The Canon-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF aims to achieve fast focusing during Live View and movie shooting. 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).
The Canon EOS 200D is equipped with a Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor, a fully articulated screen that allows users to experiment with image compositions from diverse angles. The combination of Vari-angle LCD monitor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF further enables the EOS 200D to deliver movies in full HD quality at 60p.

Via the “how-to” tips for smart shooting and guide on the graphic user interface, beginners can also pick up more skills and tap the capabilities of the EOS 200D.
In the Selfie Mode, settings such as background defocus, brightness and smooth skin effect are automatically adjusted to frame the shot. Coupled with the Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor, Canon EOS 200D aims to provide users with flexibility in composition from different angles.
The camera body is designed to provide an enhanced grip and is overlaid with a grain finish. Also, the mode dial now fits the camera’s surface. The internal structure of the EOS 200D was also remodelled to achieve better design integration. For example, the circuit board for flash was downsized to keep the weight light.
The Canon EOS 200D will be available in classic black.
With Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, users can transfer images and videos from EOS 200D to the smart devices and upload them on to the Canon Image Gateway, social media platforms and cloud storage.
