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.
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).
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.
