Canon is FINALLY listening to its customers
It is no secret that DSLRs are slowly dying with the advent of mirrorless cameras offering professional features while having a compact body. While more and more people are choosing to buy mirrorless cameras over DSLRs, Canon has a great reason on why one should consider a DSLR—specifically an entry-level one with the EOS 200D II.
Known as the EOS 250D in Europe or EOS Rebel SL3 in the US, Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR has two important upgrades: first, it comes with a DIGIC 8 Processor (currently used in the EOS M50, EOS R, and EOS RP) that gives the EOS 200D II a suite of features like Eye AF, Auto Lighting Optimizer, Digital Lens Optimizer, and Highlight Tone Priority.
Second, it is the first entry-level DSLR from Canon that offers 4K video recording at 24/25P—a potential gamechanger and proof that Canon is finally listening to its customers after being stubborn in adding 4K video recording to the majority of its cameras.
With those key features in mind, the biggest question is how much Canon will price the EOS 200D II. DigitalRev notes that the possible price of the EOS 200D II is at $599(~Php 31k), making it competitively priced for an entry-level DSLR that can shoot 4K video. The EOS 200D II is set to be available in the Philippines this May, and we hope Canon gives a really good price for it.
