The EOS M200 is a new and upgraded version of Canon's beginner orientated EOS M100. It's designed for newbies rather than experts and the changes over the older model aren't massive, so it's arrived without much of a fanfare – but deserves a closer look anyway.

The design of the new Canon EOS M200 is very much like the existing EOS M100. In fact, you'd have trouble telling them apart from the outside. There's no viewfinder, but there is a flip-up selfie touchscreen display at the back. It's designed to be a very simply camera and doesn't even have a mode dial – instead, most of the control happens via the touchscreen display. It's too basic to be one of the best mirrorless cameras all round, but it could prove to be one of the best cameras for beginners.
