Canon Unveils New Mirrorless Camera With 4K Video for New Users

Canon is raising its mirrorless camera game to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive market. The new EOS M50 adds 4K video in a camera which should appeal to new users.

The camera comes with a 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, with Dual Pixel technology (which allows for faster autofocus). It is accompanied by a new DIGIC 8 image processor and has an ISO range between 100 and 25600 (51200 via extension).

Burst shooting speed goes up to 10 fps (7.4 with autofocus), for a maximum of 47 images. There’s added support for a compressed RAW option thanks to the addition of CR3 RAW format, while a silent mode almost eliminates shutter sound.

The highlight undoubtedly is the 4K (3840 x 2160) video at 24 fps, or 1080p at 60 fps, with an option for slow-motion stuff. The max length for videos is 30 minutes, unfortunately.

For photographers actively seeking to upgrade their skills, the EOS M50 is an all-around, entry-level camera with an extensive list of user-friendly features that encourages users to broaden their creative visions.

At the back of the camera is a pop-out 1.4-million-dot touchscreen display, which supports touch and drag AF. There’s also a 2.36-million-dot OLED EVF, with a pop-out flash at the top.

Connectivity is handled by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and micro-USB. Battery life is said to last 235 shots on full charge.


Pricing for the EOS M50 is set at $780 for the body, which is available in either Black or White.

Bundled with an EF-M 15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM it costs $900, while an addition of a 55-200 mm f/4.5-6.3 lens it gets raised to $1250. The camera will be up on retail this April.
