Canon 200D II / SL3 vs Canon 200D / SL2

Canon 200D II / SL3 vs Canon 200D / SL2 camera, the camera features more advance AF system, Digital IS and 4K video. So, let’s have a look in a very detailed specification comparison what actually improved inside the camera.

1. Canon 200D II / SL3 vs Canon 200D / SL2 – Sensor and Image Processor

Camera Name Canon 200D II / SL3 Canon 200D / SL2
Camera Format APS-C (1.6x Crop Factor) APS-C (1.6x Crop Factor)
Image Processor Digic 8 Digic 7
Pixels Actual: 25.8 Megapixel
Effective: 24.1 Megapixel
Actual: 25.8 Megapixel
Effective: 24.2 Megapixel
Maximum Resolution 6000 x 4000 6000 x 4000
Aspect Ratio 1:1, 3:2, 4:3, 16:9 1:1, 3:2, 4:3, 16:9
Sensor Type CMOS CMOS
Sensor Size 22.3 x 14.9 mm 22.3 x 14.9 mm
Image File Format JPEG, RAW JPEG, RAW
Bit Depth 14-Bit 14-Bit
Image Stabilization Digital, 5-Axis (Video Only) None

Everything remains look same from specification side. But the sensor is new with more AF points fabricated on it. However, the tech remains same [CMOS] so don’t expect jump in image quality of the camera.

Digital Image stabilization is being introduced inside the camera. Before Canon 200D II / 250D the Digital IS tech was limited to 6D Mark II and Canon T7i / Canon 800D. Now finally we are having the Digital IS feature in 200D II or SL2. When paired up with OIS [Optical image stabilization] it gives support upto 5 stops.

New Image processor – With the introduction of new image processor the Camera company in general also adds new image decoding algorithm and overall operational speed of the camera also improves.

With the introduction of new image processor the camera now records C-RAW files and 4K cropped video.

No comments on ISO range, continuous shooting speed and Continuous AF speed. Despite of adding a brand new image processor and a newly developed CMOS sensor these features remains same as of predecessor. It’s look like Canon want to protect its upcoming Mid-Range DSLR sales

Canon finally introduced 4K Video recording option inside the Canon 200D II / SL3 / 250D camera. However the option is same as we have seen inside the Canon EOS M50 camera. We do get some forced limitation from Canon in 250D camera.

2.56X Crop in 4K video mode, as well as no DPAF support in 4K mode. The AF remains limited to contrast detect AF.

4. Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Focus Type Auto and Manual Focus Auto and Manual Focus
Focus Mode Automatic (A), Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M), Single-Servo AF (S) Automatic (A), Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M), Single-Servo AF (S)
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 9 (1 Cross-Type) Phase Detection: 9 (1 Cross-Type)
DPAF Points 3975
Autofocus Sensitivity -0.5 to +18 EV -0.5 to +18 EV

AF system is drastically improved, now you will be getting 3975 AF points in the Canon  200D II / 250D / SL3 camera. Literally it’s not possible to select every single AF points from camera menu or display screen so Canon grouped those AF points into 143 AF Zones.

The Canon 200D II DPAF system in best in its class and even better than most of Mid-range DSLRs and Mirrorless of today’s.

5. Viewfinder and Monitor

Viewfinder Type Optical (Pentamirror) Optical (Pentamirror)
Viewfinder Eye Point 19 mm 19 mm
Viewfinder Coverage 95% 95%

The Display screen of the camera remains same as of predecessor , nothing changed.

6. Microphone and more

Memory Card Slot 1 x SD/SDHC/SDXC
Connectivity 3.5mm Microphone, HDMI C (Mini), Mini-USB
Wireless Wi-Fi

Ports remain same but your new camera is now compatible with UHS-II card.

7. Physical

Canon 200D II camera look is bit new but the shape and size of the camera remains same as of predecessor.

Battery 1 x LP-E17 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, 7.2 VDC, 1040 mAh (Approx. 1630 Shots per Charge)   1 x LP-E17 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, 7.2 VDC, 1040 mAh

Weight 15.84 oz / 449 g (Body with Battery and Memory) 14.32 oz / 406 g (Body Only)

 8. Conclusion

Canon 200D II arrived with limited improvements, the sensor is revised and AF is vastly improved, we have new Digic 8 image processor that improves overall operational speed of the camera and add 4k as well as C-RAW file option to 200D II. But, despite of having a new image processor, we are getting same continuous shooting speed and ISO ratings. And not only that 4K mode mimic the same limitations we have seen inside the EOS M50 camera.

But, above all Canon 200D II high density AF system is best in its class. You will be getting best in class AF speed while recording videos or shooting still through the display / live view mode.

We highly recommend you to buy Canon 200D II camera over Canon 200D.

    Nice job on this comparison. Brief, but to the point, quick and easy!

  • mike

    one more thing –
    you are not talking about the software – user interface.
    it is easier to navigate, it has more options and tips.
    it can also use live filters or you can edit your photos easier
