The Canon EOS M200 is a mirrorless APS-C camera with a flip-out screen. It has a portable and lightweight design, but it lacks a hand grip, so it may not be comfortable for some users. It has a very good image quality, and its impressive photo autofocus system can keep track of moving subjects and keep them in focus. It can also record video in 4k and FHD, but its video autofocus system has a poor performance in 4k.
The Canon M200 is good for travel photography. It has a very good image quality, so your photos are clear and detailed, and its low minimum shutter speed enables you to take time-lapse photography. Its autofocus feature also does a great job tracking moving subjects and keeping them in focus. While it's very portable, it doesn't have a hand grip, which can be inconvenient for some users.
The Canon M200 is good for landscape photography. It has a very good image quality, and its screen is bright enough to be readable even in direct sunlight. Its kit lens has a fair overall performance, but unfortunately, there's some noticeable light falloff that can make the edges of your photo appear darker than the center.
The Canon M200 is decent for sport and wildlife photography. It has a very good image quality, and its autofocus system does an impressive job tracking fast-moving subjects and keeping them in focus. However, if you like burst photography, you may be disappointed by the fact that the camera only has one continuous shooting speed of seven frames per second.
The Canon M200 is good for vlogging. This portable camera comes with a flip-out screen that you can flip to face you while you record. It has good video quality in 4k and fair video quality in FHD. However, it has some trouble smoothing out camera shake if you record while walking, especially in 4k.
The Canon M200 is decent for studio video. It has a fair recording quality in FHD, but it performs better in 4k. Its video autofocus system does an amazing job tracking moving subjects in FHD, but it struggles a bit when recording in 4k. There also aren't any inputs for microphones or headphones, which is a bit disappointing.
The Canon M200 isn't designed for action video. While it's lightweight and portable, it can't be strapped onto a helmet and it isn't rated for water resistance. It also doesn't have a lot of frame rate options in FHD, so you can't record slow-motion clips.
The Canon M200 comes in both 'Black' and 'White' color variants. We tested the 'Black' variant with the EF-M 15–45mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM lens, and you can see the label here. We expect the other color variants to perform similarly.
You can also purchase this camera with an 18-150mm lens, or without any additional lenses at all. However, we haven't tested the camera's performance with other lenses, so we can't confirm its performance.
If you come across another version of this camera, let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.
The Sony α6000 and the Canon EOS M200 are both good entry-level cameras with APS-C sensors, though they have some key differences. The Canon has a more compact body, making it a bit easier to store and take on the go, but it also lacks a viewfinder and handgrip, making it less comfortable to shoot with. The Canon has slightly better noise performance at higher ISO settings and a newer, more effective autofocus system. It can record 4k video and has a screen that flips up to face you, making it a better choice for vlogging. The Sony has a faster continuous shooting speed and better battery life.
The Canon EOS M200 and the Sony ZV-1 are two different types of cameras. The Canon is an interchangeable lens mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor, making it a little more versatile for photography than the Sony, which has a fixed lens and smaller 1-inch sensor. Though the Canon has a very portable body, it's less portable when factoring in the size of your lens. It's also not as well-suited to video since it can only shoot severely cropped 4k video, has fewer frame rate options, and worse stabilization than the Sony.
If you'd prefer an entry-level camera with a faster max burst rate, consider the Sony α6000.
