The Canon EOS 250D is an amateur SLR camera with very small dimensions. It is equipped with Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology and 4K movie mode. Can it compete with mirrorless cameras?
New SLRs appear on the market less and less often, but Canon is still not being created in this matter. EOS 250D is a slightly modified version of EOS 200D presented two years ago. The changes are not great, but certainly noticeable.
The most important features
- Matrix APS-C 24.1 Mpix
- Tilting and touch screen
- 4K movie mode
- Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology
- DIGIC 8 processor
- WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth
Small housing and APS-C matrix
The producer boasts that the Canon EOS 200D is the lightest SLR in the world . The camera is small and dedicated to amateurs. Going for it will be beginners who would like to try working with a SLR camera. Body provides good ergonomics, but the number of buttons has been severely limited due to the target group of the camera – only two knobs (including one modes) and a set of basic buttons, including for setting the ISO.The inside of the camera is a 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor known from more expensive models, such as the EOS 800D. The matrix is supported by a powerful DIGIC 8 processor, while the autofocus works on the basis of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology , although it is suddenly 9-point. You can see that Canon slowly resigns from the policy of limiting the possibilities of its cheapest models. Both the matrix and the processor are of good quality, and autofocus uses the same technology as advanced models such as EOS 80D. Of course, in terms of the AF system camera falls out and so pale in comparison with many mirrorless cameras, but should be enough for amateurs who do not take pictures of sport and other areas requiring high speed.
Swing screen and 4K mode
From the point of view of users filming with cameras this model may seem quite interesting. First of all, it has 4K mode , which Canon told us to wait a long time, because until recently, in older models we had limited to 25 frames per second Full HD, so 4K was out of reach. Fortunately, this mode was here.For this we have a screen tilted to the side, useful when shooting vlogs, which is additionally equipped with a touch that will make it easier to handle it. Going with the times, Canon does not forget about wireless connectivity, the camera has both a WiFi module and Bluetooth . These options guarantee us a quick transfer of images to the smartphone, as well as remote control of the camera. The camera can be connected constantly and continuously send the pictures taken.
Canon EOS 250D – price and availability
Canon EOS 200D is to be available in three colors – except black, also in white and silver. It is available in pre-sale in the Canon store , and it will hit other stores at the end of April. For the version with the kit lens we have to pay 3419 zlotys. At this price we will find many competing mirrorless cameras, but people wishing to own a DSLR will be satisfied with this model. The advantage of EOS 250D is that we can find a lot of lenses on the market at good prices, which is not so obvious for other manufacturers.
