Our rating of the Canon EOS 200D

The EOS 200D (US: Rebel SL2) is the smallest DSLR in Canon's lineup and follows the EOS 100D (US: Rebel SL1) of 2013. Featuring a new battery for greatly improved stamina, the compact camera also gains Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) for better autofocus when recording videos and in Live View mode. The APS-C sized sensor records 24 megapixel and captures video with up to 1920 x 1080 pixel (FullHD). The connector for an external microphone is a plus for videographers.
