Canon EOS M50
Canon M50 is the latest and the first 4K mirrorless camera extending the M-series range. M50 features a 24.1 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor capable of capturing 4K video at 24fps. It is the for the first time that Canon has included 4K capture in a consumer-level Canon camera. The M50 is so advanced that it can directly compete with the DSLRs. It is a compact mirrorless camera, smaller than a DSLR. It does include a digital viewfinder and an LCD touchscreen display. The display can flip to the front, making it ideal for selfie lovers or for vlogging.
There are now 143 Autofocus points to capture a sharp subject. It even sports Eye Autofocus, which as the name suggest can lock onto the subject eyes. These make useful to stay focus on the subject even while moving. The M50 runs Canon’s latest Digic 8 processor offering Dual Pixel AF coverage, 4K Video capture at 24fps. Talking about 4K capability, the Cannon’s M50 can capture 4K video with a 1.7x crop factor which means it only uses 8-; Megapixel sensor area and Dual Pixel AF is not available. Therefore, if you’re looking out for a Vlogging camera that can capture 4k should give it a miss.
The Canon M50 has easy control due to clearly labelled buttons and a simple menu system. The Canon menu system is combined with touch capabilities making it a great camera for new photographers and videographers. Connectivity-wise, the M50 comes with WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC. NFC can connect the camera with the device automatically for a seamless transfer of images.
The Canon M50 is the most advanced M-Series camera to date, thanks to the 4K and the Digic 8 processor. It does come with its own flaw including 1.7x crop factor in 4K mode. Though it is a very good camera, but not quite a great one.
