Jazz up your everyday photography with Canon’s stylish intuitive EOS 200D II

Canon’s new EOS 200D II marries form with function, adding a new dimension to your everyday photography.

SINGAPORE, 10 April 2019 – Canon today announced the EOS 200D II, the latest addition to the range of EOS DSLR and successor to the EOS 200D. Powered by Canon’s DIGIC 8 imaging processor and packed with a multitude of features, the EOS 200D II packs a punch in its light weight and compact body. With the Creative Assist and smooth skin feature incorporated for the first time on an EOS DSLR, users will be able to achieve desired effects on their photos and take picture perfect selfies easily on the EOS 200D II.

“The EOS 200D II was designed for users who want to capture their everyday and milestone moments in higher quality. We believe that doing so doesn’t have to be complicated if you let your camera do the hard work,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “Stylishly designed with user-friendly features such as the Creative Assist, the EOS 200D II is the ultimate go-to choice for beginners looking for an intuitive and enjoyable experience.”

Empowering Vivid Storytelling

Belying its compact size and weight, the EOS 200D II’s full-fledged functions, deeper grip design for a secure hold and intuitive user interface makes it super easy to operate – even for beginners.

Powered by the latest DIGIC 8 processor and a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor, users can expect to capture sharp, vibrant images in optimum quality. A wide ISO range of 100 to 25,600 (expandable to 51,200) allows for shooting in a variety of lighting conditions, while noise level is kept to a minimum in low light conditions. Whether you’re shooting evening cityscapes or capturing a dish in a dimly lit restaurant; you’ll be able to achieve focus with the minimum AF luminance of EV-4, made possible with Dual Pixel AF technology.

Capturing scenes like the dramatic gradations of a sunrise or sunset or the rich hues of a grass field is easy with the EOS 200D II’s Auto Lighting Optimiser. While a continuous shooting rate of up to 5 fps makes tracking fast-moving subjects like active pets at play or children crossing the finish line at sporting events simple to bring to life.

Let the EOS 200D II bring out the filmmaker in you with high-quality movies in 4K. Even in dim environments, your footage remains sharp with the Movie Digital IS, while the menu’s 4K Time-Lapse movie function makes time-lapse movies a breeze.

Intuitive Features

The Creative Assist function helps new shooters navigate the different settings to achieve their desired effect. For instance, to adjust image brightness or blur the background, users can do so with just a touch of a button with the Creative Assist menu, storing their preferred settings for future use, if desired.

With EOS 200D II’s Vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor and the Smooth Skin function, users can also raise their self-portrait game.

Generally, beautiful portrait shots are easy with the Eye Detection AF, which focuses on the eye of the subject when shooting. The intelligent focus system can continue to track the subject’s eye even when there is movement, ensuring that you never lose focus of your subject.

Easy Connectivity

Enjoy the convenience of having images automatically transferred from the EOS 200D II to a smart device upon shooting, uploading them to social media platforms or cloud storage even on the go – made all the more simple with the camera’s dedicated one-touch Wi-Fi button to facilitate connection. Users can control camera settings such as shutter speed, self-timer, focus selection and more with the Canon Camera Connect app.

With the built-in Bluetooth low energy technology, the camera can stay connected for quick access such as image viewing on smart devices without the hassle of taking the camera out of your bag.

The EOS 200D II will be available from early May 2019 at Canon authorised dealers.
