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.

I just started riding my bicycle after a year of lockdown. I usually only shoot in Jazz clubs. The bike opened up Street Photography for me. I own a Canon R, 5D Mark II ,multiple L lenses and a Nikon D 500. All of these is too heavy for me to carry on the train or on bike all day. My usual camera bags I would say,weigh about 10 lbs,with all my equiptment packed.The picture quality is indistinguishable from my other camera unless you do stringent,professional testing. This one is a keeper. I can walk with it every day. Let me add,I am 71 years old. I appreciate good quality photoswith out the heavy weight burden. My only complaint would be,It is easy to push the wrong buttons accidently when you are shooting.The smallness is not great for big hands. I've changed how I grip my camera to accomadate. Batery life seems short.

When my ten-year-old MFT camera failed, scrambled to find a reasonably priced replacement. The M50 is as much of a step up from my old Olympus E-PL1 as it was a step up from the point-and-shoot cameras I'd been using before. Great service from B&H as usual and a good price. Great image quality. Would recommend.

Great user friendly camera

What is the difference between the EOS M50 Mirrorless (with kit lens) and the EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless (with kit lens)?
Asked by: Susan
The M50 ii offers eye autofocus tracking in both stills and video, the M50 is only stills. The M50II also allows vertical video, so you can capture video in the camera in the same shape as a smartphone would, and you can also stream to Youtube Live over a smartphone internet connection. Also with regards to live streaming, if you connect the camera via HDMI cable to a capture card, you can live stream with no overlays in the video. With the M50 to there are some overlays, the M50 is not clean HDMI like the M50 II is.

Asked by: Samrat
This camera will come with the recent firmware update (11/19). That update was for security purposes, however, rather than being for eye AF. The full frame Canon R and RP have superior focusing to that of this camera. This camera will be easier to use for many enthusiasts, however.

question

Is the EF-M 18-150 silver lens compatible w/ this camera body (ie, plug & shoot, no adapters needed)?
Asked by: Enrique
The Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera uses Canon's EF-M lens mount as shown under the Specifications for the camera. As the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens (Silver) also uses the Canon EF-M mount, no adapter is necessary to connect the lens to the camera; it connects directly to the EF-M lens mount on the camera.
