The Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera Body, comprises a versatile feature-set to suit both stills and video applications. The camera carves a niche with UHD 4K video recording, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Eye Detection AF. The 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor along with enhanced Auto Lighting Optimizer ensure clear images with low noise. Get quick accurate and smooth performance with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
Optics and Focus
The Dual Pixel CMOS AF allows smooth and fast focusing performance similarly to how a camcorder acquires focus. Integrating two separate photodiodes within each pixel, this system provides a broad network of phase-detection that gathers elements across a majority of the image sensor. This reduces focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. While working with still images, the focusing system acquires focus quickly and accurately, making it suited for shooting moving subjects. Eye Detection AF can also be used to prioritize focus on a subject's eye for sharper images. The Movie Servo AF mode further offers a smooth and natural focusing when changing from different objects at different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. The Touch AF system makes it easier to focus on various elements with a simple touch on the screen. 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. The built-in 5-axis digital image stabilization in combination with the optical IS and lens-based image stabilization system helps minimize camera shakes facilitating recording while walking or moving.
Sensor and Screen
The large 3-inch touchscreen LCD makes it easy to control the focus points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. The touchscreen features vari-angle that enables you to take shots from various high and low angles. The integrated 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder permits bright, clear eye-level monitoring and makes it easy to work with the Touch and Drag AF for manually moving the AF area while shooting with the EVF for more intuitive control.
Image and Video
The Canon EOS M50 can record UHD 4K videos at 23.98 fps, along with Full HD 1920 x 1080p at 59.94 fps and HD 1280 x 720p at 120 fps for slow-motion videos. The built-in mic with video stereo enables you to create explicit audio-visual videos. 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 a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, which can be extended to ISO 51200 for working in low-light conditions.
The built-in Wi-Fi along with the NFC allows you to wirelessly share both photos and videos to a linked mobile device. You can also use the Bluetooth to connect the camera to a smartphone or tablet to quickly share images or remote control capabilities. While working in low-light conditions, you can either use the built-in pop-up flash or attach an external flash to the hot shoe for greater control.
Describes the camera's video recording capability. Will describe the camera's video recording system, image sensor, video resolution, as well as other pertinent information related to the camera's video recording.
A flash that is embedded or part of the camera. Built-in flashes are found in both DSLR and Point & Shoot cameras. Although practical because of their small size and ease of use, built-in flashes are often ineffective and/or unflattering as a main source of light.
The types of files that a particular camera produces. All cameras output JPEG images, but some of the more sophisticated models will shoot in RAW mode. RAW Image Formats will vary based on manufacturer.
Refers to the actual physical size of the imaging sensor in the camera. A sensor that has the same dimensions as a 35mm frame of film is considered to be "full" frame. Other smaller sensor sizes are described in terms relative to a "full" sized sensor. (e.g. an APS-C 1.5x crop sensor)
