Canon EOS M50 – Key Features, Pricing, Availability, and More

Canon EOS M50

Here the Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M in Asia) is an entry-level mirrorless camera that features an electronic viewfinder.

It is a fully articulating touchscreen, single control dial, and a 24MP APS-C sensor – the same used by its M-series siblings.

It has Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor and offers expanded Dual Pixel AF coverage, 4K/24p video capture (with a 1.7x crop), as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC.

What are the Key Features?

  1. 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  2. Also, EF-M lens mount with care for EF/EF-S lenses with an elective adapter
  3. Dual Pixel autofocus for calms and 1080p video
  4. DIGIC 8 processor
  5. 2.36M-dot OLED EVF
  6. 1.04M-dot in vari-angle LCD
  7. 7.4 fps burst in AF-C (10 fps in AF-S)
  8. 4K/24p UHD in the video (1.7x crop)
  9. 1080/60p and 720/120p HD video
  10. Wi-Fi and NFC with the Bluetooth
  11. 235 is shot-per-charge battery live in it (per CIPA)

1 year ago, we met with Canon executives in Yokohama, Japan – you can read the full interview here. At the time, they promised the brand’s main strategic focus going forward would be connectivity and video.

The M50 is a clear indication that Canon is creating good on that promise. The first Canon camera will automatically send photos to your smartphone after each shot and the first M-series to offer 4K.

But before you get too happy about that last bit, it’s worth noting that 4K comes with a heavy 1.7x crop, and Dual Pixel AF is not available in 4K (contrast-detection AF is available).

The M50 is the first Canon to use the new CR3 Raw format:

  • The Dual Pixel AF can be used in all other video modes, counting 1080/60p. It still covers 80% x 80% of the sensor but now with 99 selectable points (up from 49 on previous M cameras).
  • And with specific lenses (18-150mm, 28mm macro, and 55-200mm), that coverage
    increases to 88% x 100% with 143 points.
  • The M50 is the first Canon to use the new CR3 Raw arrangement, an updated compression option called C-Raw.
  • (compressed full resolution, rather than the downsized ‘Small’ and ‘Medium’ Raw formats).

How can we Compare?

However, the M50 is an entry-level camera. It’s priced a bit higher than a lot of other entry-level offerings.

Below we’ve compared it to approximately of its Canon peers as well as similar-priced mirrorless cameras.
