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 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
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 5 out of 5 by from The Canon mirrorless I've been waiting for! Three years ago I bought the SL1 as the beginning of my downsizing of camera gear.� It was intended as a stop gap while I waited for Canon to make a mirrorless with an integrated EVF.� (In fact, it turned out to be a very capable camera.)� The M5 came close to what I� was looking for, but I decided to wait one model longer.� The M50 looked close enough.� Still called an "entry level" camera, it is functionally similar to the SL1 and SL2 and has a couple of improvements over the M5, while still a couple hundred dollars cheaper. My objectives in moving to mirrorless:� Eye level video shooting with no reconfiguring; no need for AF micro adjust.� We have a 7D, 5D2, and 5DSR, all with AF micro adjust, and that's good, because our 500F4 needs +10 to AF correctly, and the 50F1.2 needs -12!� Others have various adjustments for precise AF.� Of course micro adjust is not available on the Rebel line, so my SL1 just could not use the 50/1.2, one of my favorite lenses. Well, the M50 delivered on my requirements.� What I didn't expect was fast, accurate AF with F8 lenses.� Only our 5DSR will AF with F8; the others lose AF at above F5.6 lenses.� So what?� The 100-400 now works with a 1.4 extender on the 5DSR ($3,800) AND on the M50 ($780).� The 500F4 + 2x extender works as well.� This, especially the 100-400+1.4x, is a really big deal.� Almost a game changer.� IS a game changer. Only disappointment.� My Tamron 16-300 will not work with the M50+Canon M-EF adapter, and Tamron says they'll not be offering a firmware update to fix it.� I don't blame Canon for that.� It's a risk with reverse-engineered 3rd party gear.� However, I've now removed Tamron from my list for lenses.� The lens still works with the SL1, so I'll probably sell it with the SL1 as a kit. I just took the M50 on a club trip with outings on a swamp boat, a night and light painting venture, a jungle garden trip, and an historic home, grounds and museum visit.� Luckily my Sigma 8-16 and very old Sigma 18-200 work with the Canon adapter just fine.� The 15-45 kit lens is good too, and very light.� The Canon 90EX flash works properly and is both taller and more powerful than the popup flash, plus saves the camera battery.� Also, ALL our Canon lenses work with the Canon M-EF adapter, even the old version 1 35/F2. All the buttons are programmable, and that's a big help, too.� I use the Multi Fn button to switch AF method (1pt, zone, L tracking) and the MF/AF button to switch AF between one shot and servo.� The flash on/off I disable, as I hit it too often by accident.� Both the EVF and LCD panel are highly customizable and can include the built in electronic level.� Using the touch screen to move the AF point while looking at the EVF is a nice feature, but so far, I've mostly moved it by accident!�� Wishes.� I wish the Q set LCD screen could be left off except when the Q set button is pressed, like on the SL1.� I wish I could find how to adjust the EVF brightness.� And I wish the 15-45 kit lens came with a shade, as the front element of that lens is VERY close to the front and easily bumped.� An aftermarket lens shade for half the price of Canon's fixed that, though.� I'd like it if there was a better selection of native M mount lenses, particularly an extra long W-T zoom, but having 100% functionality of Canon's EF lens line with the Canon adapter is a major plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera, less great lens. I purchased this camera as my secondary "every day" camera. One where I can carry it everywhere for when the perfect moment happens. I must admit, going back and forth from a full-frame DSLR to this small mirror-less, takes a lot of getting used to. There is quite a weight and size difference. The pictures are spot on quality and the frame rate is impressive. The frame buffer for raw leaves me wanting more, but in jpeg mode, I have yet to hit it. It must be noted that, as of June 2018, there is no support in Windows 10 for viewing the raw files produced by this camera. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop both support the format, which is what I typically use, but not being able to view the files naively in Windows just to take a quick peek is a tad annoying. I typically do a lot of research on products before I pull the trigger and purchase. The same goes for this. As with every other modern Canon lens, they come with metal threads on the lens mount. This is essential for someone who does switch lenses often. The 15-45mm lens DOES NOT come with metal threads. I worry every time I switch lens, that this will be damaged. As mentioned before, I do my research, but nothing on B&H or Amazon etc. mention anything about the threads being plastic. Overall, the camera has been great. With the optional adapter to use regular EF lenses, I have a variety of focal lengths at my disposal without having to buy a whole new set of lenses. Might I add, attaching my Sigma 150-600mm lens looks ridiculous on this camera!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and complete I've been enjoying my new Canon EOS-M50. I have the original EOS M and, for sure, Canon have improved their mirroless line-up with this camera. It's fast, it's easy to use, has a lot of resources like eye detection for better focusing or time lapse movies. My only complain would be the kit lense. It's not the best lense. I really prefer my EF-M 22 or EF-M 28 Macro. They are way better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice camera It's small and light weight, but takes good pictures. The auto focus works well and I like being able to move the focus around on the touch screen display. The camera is more intuitive to use than other Canons I have used. It also works well with the lens adapter and a Canon EF 24-85 zoom. Transferring images to a Mac doesn't work for me, so I use a card reader. A minor negative is not having an audio out jack. A problem with buying over the Internet is not being able to see what the lens sees; the included lens is too wide angle for my use.

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 5 out of 5 by from Canon EOS M50 & EF-M 15-45mm lens I bought this as an upgrade to the original EOS M, which I used as an alternative to my Canon 5D3 and 7D2 bodies when I wanted to travel light. The original M had a few serious deficiencies, though, such as a poor auto focus system, no viewfinder (making it difficult to shoot in sunlight), and cumbersome ergonomics. The M50 solves all those issues. Auto focus performance is greatly improved. I can now easily track subjects and capture them in motion, which was extremely difficult with the M. The viewfinder provides an option for shooting in bright sunlight. The ergonomics, while still not as good as my large body dSLRs, is much closer now with the added controls and dials. I opted for the kit with EF-M 15-45mm lens, even though I already owned the EF-M 18-55mm general purpose zoom (I also own the EF-M 22mm f/2 pancake). The 15-45mm is more compact and offers a wider angle focal length, which better fits my shooting style with this type of camera. The performance of the two lenses is very similar, so I will be selling the 18-55mm. The pop-up flash is rather small, but is handy if you just need a little fill flash. I also own the compact Canon Speedlite 270EX, which pairs well with this camera when a better flash is needed. Picture quality is excellent. The one downside is that the camera uses Canon's new CR3 RAW file format, which is not yet supported by all the different RAW processing software. I opted not to upgrade to Adobe's subscription-based version of Lightroom, which does support the CR3 files. For now, I am using Adobe's free RAW to DNG convertor application and then importing the DNG files into Lightroom 6. I am hopeful that DxO will soon add support for this camera to its PhotoLab software, which I also own. Video performance is quite good, too. I do not shoot much video, and have only tested this feature at the 1080p resolution. Auto focus tracking for moving subjects works very well. The 4K video is a 1.7x crop of the frame, and I have not tried that resolution because my PC does not support 4K video. I did not buy the camera for 4K video anyway, but instead for still photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon M50, Better than what you may have heard! First off, let's look at this camera for what it IS and not compare it to what it's NOT. It's definitely not a 1Dx mark II or 5D Mark IV, both of which do 4K. It IS the first Canon camera under $1000 to have 4k in it. Yes, there is a big crop, which is actually about the same as any of the 4 thirds sensor cameras, however with the larger APS-C sensor. It doesn't give you Dual Pixel AF in 4k. It does give one of the best dual pixel AF systems in 1080p! It has the latest sensor from Canon the digic 8, & 24 megapixel. This combination has given me some pretty impressive low light images and I even captured some really stunning fireworks at a park recently this past 4th of July (2018). All in all, I would say this is outstanding higher end beginner/ intermediate level camera. It's not a pro level camera and should not be compared to any of the features that you get in a camera that you spend $3000-$6000 for. Again, it is the first Canon camera under $1000 to have 4k! Don't expect to get the moon for a dollar and you'll be quite happy with it . Light weight, easily transportable and fun to shoot! By the way, one of the first things you should do upon getting the camera, is watch one of the tutorials in Youtube and change the menu from the one it comes on to the Canon standard menu. Trust me, you'll be much happier with it if you do. Of course, all of this is my opinion, and I'm no expert, however I do believe in judging a product on what it is and not expecting it to perform or have the features of a camera that's 3 to 5 times it's cost.
