Review SLR camera Canon EOS 200D: natural enemy of besserglik
Complexity in the organization of the family of their Canon cameras can compete with anyone – and will almost certainly come out the “winner.” With mirrorless cameras EOS M side by side there are many Amateur SLRs from the basic EOS 1300D and a little more serious EOS 760/800D hardened to somewhere between classes (and very successful) EOS 77D.
Where should I include the new EOS 200D, still claiming the title of smallest modern SLR, is not clear. Less compared to the 100D it did not – on the contrary, a little added size and weight – on records does not apply. Remove the mirrorless camera market Canon is not planning – on the contrary, the Japanese clearly have a great desire to develop this theme and still win a significant place. I want to write again the sentence of EOS 1x, but I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few months, for example, we get the 1500D, which by its characteristics will be similar to the heroine of today’s review.
In General, it is easier to not even try to find 200D clear place in these close ranks and just talk about what happened second of its kind, “baby”, which received the update almost all the characteristics.

Appearance and ergonomics
In the reviews SLR cameras not made specifically to talk about the design as such is, as a rule, it’s entirely utilitarian. Everything is solely ergonomic requirements.
But Canon EOS 200D breaks this tradition. No, something quite out of the ordinary Canon does not offer his philosophy is a classical SLR with all its characteristic features: large lugs to grip, the hump with the obligatory pentaprism, inserts of a material with a different texture for tenacity.
While 200D offers a rare for cameras (if not Pentax) feature – a few color variations. Along with the traditional (and inevitably the most popular, alas) black also available white and silver camera. In our test, as it is easy to see, were white EOS 200D, and it does indeed seem very cool and attracts attention. However, take it often for the next model Pentax, so if you somehow have some prejudice towards this once great, and now, alas, fading of the company is a reason to prefer the black version.
Another important point is, of course, dimensions. Excluding lens 200D is comparable , for example,G8 or Lumix cameras, the Sony a7 family, that is the largest “bassically”, regardless of their class and category. Another thing is that to compete with their direct competitors in the Amateur segment — Fujifilm X-A3, Panasonic GX80 or Olympus OM-D E-M10 III – she can’t. And the body, and especially lenses (due to a sufficiently large working distance.) here is still significantly larger. It’s a small camera, but downright outdo deprived pentaprism counterparts she is not capable.
But 200D and retains the key advantages of SLR cameras: in addition to the optical viewfinder and, therefore, a solid runtime on a single battery charge, we’re also talking about a comfortable grip. The ledge is large, is separated at a sufficient distance from the lens (this is precisely the advantage over Sony a7), the camera can comfortably hold in one hand and clicking at random.
The case is made from plastic — here dictate the conditions and Amateur status, and fight for every gram. Metal made frame only and individual items like hot Shoe, the shutter button and selector disk. Weight 200D in the end is 453-456 grams… depending on the color, which is funny. Silver camera do heavier black. With this camera at the ready it is possible to walk all day and not feel serious fatigue. For example, I allowed her to hang on a belt around his neck — although this usually try to avoid. Not to say that there is something to be proud of, but to create such “gravity” definitely uncharacteristic. However, it is, of course, about the camera with complete lens 18-55mm f/3.5-f/5.6 or a little “fix”. Any serious zoom lens will reduce these benefits.
Going Canon EOS 200D in Taiwan.
Front EOS 200D are Canon EF mount, release button, lens, bulb autofocus and stereo microphone holes.
On the left-hand edge located contact area NFC as well as connectors for microphone and remote control, covered by a rubber cap. Just in front you can see the button flash pop – it e -, false alarms in the backpack is excluded.
On the right — the same connectors: miniUSB and miniHDMI. The caps, by the way, relatively flimsy — provide sufficient density for the recognition of the camera moisture and dust resistant, they can not. Claims to have a 200D and it was not, but if you are going to shoot during the rain, that experience is not necessary — with the camera nothing happens, I tried. But the shower she may not survive.
On the top bar, in addition to the aforementioned hot Shoe, we see a speaker, key activation wireless connections, the shutter button along with the only selector disk, and the wheel change modes and switch in the end position of the activating work in movie format. In a separate block made two buttons control light sensitivity and on/off of the screen.
The bottom is the battery compartment, is connected with the connector for a memory card, and tripod socket. It is located quite close to the compartment to change the card or battery without removing the camera from the tripod, will not work.
The back panel features a swivel display that you can cover to have when carrying the camera in the bag does not scratch the glass. There is also a viewfinder with diopter correction wheel, the call buttons menu and change the displayed information, the mode switch button Live View, a couple of keys on the zoom/control of AF points, the call button exposure compensation (also necessary to adjust expobar in manual mode), five-way navigation key, which is also responsible for the withdrawal of the quick menu, and finally click the play button and delete the pictures.
