Canon recently released a new entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M200, which is currently selling for about $500 USD. I purchased this camera to replace the Canon G7X Mark II the wife and I have been using for a few years as I like the fact that it offers some newer features like eye-detect auto focus, 4k resolution, an APS-C sensor instead of the 1” that the G7X has, etc.
I also figured since it has a clean HDMI output that I could use it to upgrade the quality of my facecam on my livestreams instead of using the webcam I’ve been using forever as I’ve noticed more and more streamers using professional cameras for their Twitch broadcasts.
Since receiving the camera, I’ve really only tested it out for the purpose of livestreaming and hadn’t really put it through the ropes of any normal type of use case. Being winter here in Ohio, I’m typically not one to leave the house much until the temperatures start to rise again in spring! Ha!
However, God saw that the winter blues were setting in and decided to give us a nice 60 degree day here in Ohio and I figured while I had it I better get out and enjoy it and use the time to really put the camera through the ringer and see how it performed!
This video is that test as well as my explaining some of the features the camera has as well as my thoughts on using it so far and whether I think it’s worth it’s price as an entry-level camera and if I think it’s worth purchasing!
I hope you enjoy and I’d love to hear your thoughts on the camera if you own one or if you’d consider purchasing one for yourself!
