Smartphone-beater?

The new camera’s LCD touchscreen flips 180 degrees, helping to improve selfies beyond what is generally achievable when shooting with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be adjusted in real-time. A first on an EOS camera, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.

The Canon EOS M200 then promises to connect seamlessly with mobile devices via Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app, which is available for both iOS and Android. Then, images and videos can be downloaded, reviewed and shared manually. Images can also be transferred to a mobile device, automatically as they are taken. As long as the camera is in Bluetooth range, a constant connection to a smart device can be maintained, even when the camera is switched off. The Canon Camera Connect app also facilitates remote shooting with a smartphone or tablet.
