Canon M50 Overview

  • 1Description

Comprising a versatile feature-set to suit both stills and video applications, the black EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera from Canon separates itself from the pack with UHD 4K video recording, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Eye Detection AF. Utilizing a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor, improved Auto Lighting Optimizer helps to ensure clean image quality with low noise, along with top 10 fps shooting rate and a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, which can be extended to ISO 51200 for working in low-light conditions. The sensor and processor combination also enables UHD 4K video recording at 23.98 fps, along with Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 for slow motion capture. The sensor's design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for quick, accurate, and smooth performance to suit both stills and video use. Additionally, Combination IS 5-axis image stabilization also helps to realize steady, shake-free recording by minimizing the appearance of camera shake.

Complementing the imaging attributes, the EOS M50 also incorporates a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a 3.0" touchscreen LCD for intuitive control. The screen's vari-angle design permits working from high and low working angles and its touchscreen interface allows working with Touch and Drag AF for easier manipulation of the AF area. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC is available for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.

24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor
Both a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible ISO 100-25600 range, with an expandable ISO 51200 setting, suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise and afford Auto Lighting Optimizer for notable clarity in various shooting situations. UHD 4K video recording is also supported at 23.98 fps, along with Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 settings for slow motion recording. Additionally, the processor affords a 10 fps continuous shooting rate, fast camera startup time, and short interval times between each frame for a more intuitive and efficient shooting process.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. Eye Detection AF can also be used for portraiture, and helps to prioritize focus on a subject's eye for ensured sharpness.

When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
Combination IS
Combination IS uses the built-in 5-axis digital image stabilization in conjunction with lens-based image stabilization systems to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This benefits recording while walking or moving, and can also be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for more effective overall stabilization.
Body Design and Wireless Connectivity
  • Large 3.0" touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a vari-angle to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Integrated 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder permits bright, clear eye-level monitoring and also permits working with Touch and Drag AF for manually moving the AF area while shooting with the EVF for more intuitive control.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick, automatic image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
  • Built-in pop-up flash provides additional illumination for working in low-light conditions. A hot shoe is also available for working with an optional external flash for greater control.
EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
Included with the camera body is the versatile standard zoom EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which provides a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range. Three aspherical elements help to control chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range and an optimized lens placement works to reduce flare and ghosting. An Optical Image Stabilizer works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops for sharper handheld shooting and an STM stepping motor provides fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance.

Canon M50 Reviews

EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm Lens (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use to have the nice Big DSLR's, now I have this It's amazing, my favorite Camera to date and I'm 58 Yrs old, so i had a lot of them as i'm a gadget guy also, and this blows my Sony's away and my Panasonics I have had and Nikon's even.. I'm hoping they enable the 4K dual Pixelation after they make a few sales on the new higher end ones that will. Anyway, it's not the just the camera the app is amazing easy to work with the camera and instant transfers to my home Imac and also iPhone X plus I can shoot weddings in 4k with the iPhone being a remote.. but the options NFC, BT, and WiFI and GPS, you can even enter copyright info.. just a ton of easy to access controls over and the guided menus were a plus for me at first, a little fast to get to were I wanted fast you can tell this is an updated camera for the 2018's, just happy..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replaced my EOS 70d - Lighter but not perfect Its advantages are clear - much smaller and lighter with good flexibility and takes great pictures with excellent auto focus.   Weaknesses, however, are equally clear -- battery life is a pain (one battery will NOT last a full day of travel). The view finder / processing is slow.  After taking a picture, you need to wait a few seconds before the view finder is active again for the next shot. And the promise of using the adapter for your old lenses sounds good but it makes it way more awkward to use and it becomes quite bulky. Im looking at the EOS R --- but  that is a big step up in $. And Im not sure how that adapter will work for my lenses?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Camera for Packing Anywhere This is a great camera for what it is, a light, small and easy to pack around. Both the JPEG and Camera RAW photos are of excellent quality The camera provides many special photo settings (for example fish-eye photos) that I have not neither used nor plan to do so as I use photo edit workflow apps on my workstation—like Adobe Lightroom and ON1 Photo Raw. 4K video is a bit cropped so it might be unusable for you video purists though 1080p is fine. See the DP Review ?website for the details EOS M50 review per less than desirable 4K video review and analysis. I do suggest that a good choice for you is to read the full Canon EOS M50 review on the DP Review website before purchasing this camera. Again I will say this is an excellent comera for the features is provides, but you need to fully understand what it does and does not provide feature wise before purchasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, Light Weight, Discrete APS-C camera w/ a Flip Screen A small, light weight, and discrete APS-C camera with a flip out screen, that takes EF/EF-S lenses with an adapter. The only thing I would want is a second control dial. Buy some extra batteries. Wifi works great (you can control the camera with your iPad, or iPhone). Great for movies in 1080p - AF works great with dual-pixel AF. 24 MP stills, great 1080p movies. It will do 4K movies, but there's an extra crop, and you lose the dual-pixel AF. (I avoid 4K because the file sizes for 4K are huge.) I use it with a EF-M 22mm f/2 and a 50mm f/1.8 (with an adapter).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I bought this about 2 weeks ago, after doing research for 3-4 months. I am not a new shooter, but this is my 3rd Canon, 60D & 70D. The camera for me, is my travel version as I am 72 and I wanted to go smaller, lighter, but didn't want to give up my options while in the field. This is about as close to an 80D as you can get, but 1/2 the size. The IQ is excellent and the clarity is better than my 70D when you are pulling out shadows. I have the 15-45 kit lens, which is better than most of the reviews say, IMO. I also added the adapter and all of my lens work fine, even my 3rd party ones. So now I have every combination for my use. Video is excellent, and do not need 4K, so I will not comment, I am 80% stills, only using video for travel. Time-lapse movie works well and I like the results. Overall, this is not a beginners camera, though the A+ green offers stunning results. This will work for everyone, in my opinion. Get one and find out. Oh, I was considering the M5, and I am glad I bought the M50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use. After watching months and months video reviewing the latest and greatest camera releases, we chose to purchase the M50 because Canon's color science, dual pixel auto focus and menus. This is the perfect camera for our business and personal needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel & video/photo camera! It's small and light weight and has many features for the affordable price. It's a all-in-one camera. With an EF to EF-M mount you can use also EF and EF-S lenses which basically makes the image looks like a DSLR. The image quality through mirrorless and the new Digic8 processor makes it look much sharper in 1080p compared to a 1080p DSLR image quality. Because of that I don't need to shoot in 4k which saves me lots of storage space and money. Overall amazing camera! Great deal including the EF to EF-M mount!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a 5 star camera, so close First off let me say, I truly love this camera and have been almost completely satisfied with it. I'll go over a couple minor issues at the end. This is my second canon camera and first mirrorless as I have only recently got back into this wonderful hobby after about 20 years. I did a lot of research before buying but made the decision on this model because of the ability to use my existing ef-s and ef lenses, the fast dual phase autofocus, silent shutter feature, 24MP sensor, light weight, variable touch screen, and a few others. Going from my T6, this was a massive improvement. My pictures are consistently more clear and I find myself with way more photos of each scene to pick from because of the super fast shot speed. Going from 3 to 10 fps is a massive increase. The light weight was very important because of my bad back and it's been a blessing. Controls are easy to use as well as the wifi and BT. I have not had any luck getting NFC to work on this or the T6 with my motorola phone. With all this, I truly wanted to give it 5 stars but there are a few minor issues that keep me from doing that. While I wasn't necessarily looking to record in 4k, the feature being there was nice. The problem is that you have to use contrast autofocus instead of dual phase and the camera adds an additional crop for some reason. The sony and panasonic I was looking at don't appear to have either of these issues using 4k. Another issue is the silent shooting mode, it's only available in an auto mode. Why not others? There is a mic port on the camera, which I use my rode on, but no remote shutter port. Why is the flash manual and not an automatic pop-up? None of these issues seem like they would cause a huge cost increase of the camera. With all that said, I do love the camera and my lenses. I can't wait to see what new ef-m lenses canon makes available to us in the years to come.
