The Canon EOS M50 is compact enough to go with you anywhere, but it's packed with features you'd find in some of Canon's latest full-size EOS DSLRs. A 24.2-megapixel image sensor combines with Canon's latest DIGIC 8 processor to give you outstanding EOS performance and image quality in a lightweight, travel-friendly package.
The M50 is equipped with the latest generation of Canon's fast, smooth Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system. Canon tweaked it so you now get 99-143 selectable autofocus points, depending on which lens you use — a big improvement over the previous 49-point system.
Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus excels in challenging light, and it accurately tracks moving subjects. The M50 can capture sharply focused action sequences at a rate of up to 10 frames per second. HD movie focus is natural and precise, even when switching between subjects.
Note: Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus is not available during 4K video recording.
The M50 has a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a 3" LCD touchscreen for easy, intuitive shooting. The touchscreen flips out and rotates freely to help you compose shots from high or low angles. It even turns all the way forward to face you so you can frame the perfect self-portrait and be included in group shots. Use the touchscreen to change settings, define autofocus points, and trigger the shutter.
Touch and Drag autofocus makes it easy to switch focus by dragging the AF frame on the LCD screen. And you can even do it while looking through the viewfinder.
The M50 records 4K and Full HD movies in MP4 format for easy sharing. Touch-activated autofocus and manual controls make it easy to adjust settings on the fly. An external microphone jack lets you connect an outboard mic for superb sound quality. Digital Image Stabilization minimizes the effects of camera shake, so you can capture video on foot and get results that won't make you seasick.
The included 15-45mm and 55-200mm lenses combine with the M50 to make a compact system that can go with you anywhere. Both lenses have built-in Image Stabilization to help you capture blur-free photos and shake-free videos in nearly any kind of light. Specialized lens elements reduce aberrations for high-resolution image quality.
Use the 15-45mm for portraits and documenting daily life — its focal range makes it an excellent all-around lens. The 55-200mm extends your range so you can capture distant subjects and compelling portraits of subjects in the near-distance.
The M50's built-in Wi-Fi lets you upload and share photos and videos in a matter of moments. You can exchange data with other Canon cameras, play back images and movies on a Smart TV, and print directly to a Wi-Fi printer.
Canon's free Camera Connect app lets you manage photos and videos taken with the M50 on your phone or tablet. Use your device to see what the camera sees, change settings, and trigger the shutter remotely.

Overview: This Canon EOS M50 kit includes the EOS M50 camera body, with the EF-M 15-45mm IS STM and EF-M 55-200 IS STM zoom lenses. The camera has the Canon M mount, and is compatible with Canon EF-M lenses. With the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M, the EOS M50 camera is also compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
3" Touch Panel LCD Monitor: The EOS M50 features a 3" Touch Panel LCD monitor, with a 3:2 aspect ratio and approximately 1.04-million dots for composing and viewing images. The fully articulating LCD monitor can swing out 180°, and rotate 180° backward or 90° forward. This makes it easier to frame low-angle or high-angle shots or take self-portraits. The Touch Shutter feature lets you take photos by touching the screen and releasing your finger to shoot.
24.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: Canon's CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers approximately 25.8 megapixels and 24.1 megapixels. This APS-C-sized sensor (22.3mm x 14.9mm) has the same 3:2 ratio as film cameras, enabling an effective 1.6x field of view, compared to 35mm format. The camera has an image sensor cleaning function that automatically removes dust when the power is turned on or off. The cleaning function can be activated manually as well.
DIGIC 8: The EOS M50 features Canon's new DIGIC 8 Image Processor to complement the 24.1 Megapixel image sensor. The DIGIC 8 helps improve autofocus, and enables you to shoot 4K UHD 24p video. The DIGIC 8 also has an improved Auto Lighting Optimizer to analyze the images and maintain color and detail in bright areas of your photos.
Still Image Recording: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW formats. You can choose from the following image sizes: Large, Medium, Small 1, and Small 2. For each resolution (except Small 2), you can set the compression to Fine or Normal. For RAW images, you can record only at the highest resolution. For RAW images with smaller file sizes, you can also shoot in C-RAW format. You can set the camera to RAW + JPEG and record a RAW image and a Large Fine JPEG image simultaneously.
Aspect Ratio: The camera image sensor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. You can choose to record still images in 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios. This gives you the option of selecting any of the following image sizes:
|Quality||Aspect Ratio and Pixel Count|
(JPEG / RAW / C-RAW)
|6000 x 4000||5328 x 4000||6000 x 3368||4000 x 4000|
|Medium||3984 x 2656||3552 x 2664||3984 x 2240||2656 x 2656|
|Small 1||2976 x 1984||2656 x 1992||2976 x 1680||1984 x 1984|
|Small 2||2400 x 1600||2112 x 1600||2400 x 1344||1600 x 1600|
RAW File Format: The RAW file format records the image data as captured by the camera's CMOS sensor without further processing and converts it to digital data and records it onto the card as is. RAW images can be adjusted, then developed and produced into JPEG or TIFF images using the downloadable software.
Recording Media: The EOS M50 records images on an SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards, including UHS-I (Ultra High Speed) memory cards. For 4K recording, memory cards with a UHS-I speed class rating of U3 are recommended. No memory cards are supplied with the camera.
Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus: The M50 features Dual Pixel CMOS AF to give you fast and accurate auto focusing in an instant. When used with the included EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens the autofocus area includes up to 99 AF points within an 80% x 80% range. This can be expanded up to 143 AF points in an area of approximately 88% (H) x 100% (V) with select compatible lenses (including the supplied EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM).
Eye Detection AF: The new Eye Detection AF automatically determines where to focus based on the subject's eyes. This
Shooting Modes: The EOS M50's top-mounted mode dial lets you choose the shooting modes. The M50 can record still images and movies in the following modes:
Shooting Movies: The EOS M50 can record movies in 4K, Full HD, or HD at different frame rates. Movies are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format with AAC audio. You can record audio using the built-in stereo microphone. When shooting movies, a large-capacity SD card with a speed rating of Class 4 or higher is recommended. For 4K recording, you should use cards with a speed rating of Class 10 and UHS-I U3. You can select from the following recording sizes and frame rates:

Picture Style selections include: Auto, Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Fine Detail, Neutral, Faithful, Monochrome, and User Defined. Customized Picture Styles let you adjust the sharpness (strength, fineness, threshold), contrast, saturation, color tone, filter effect, and toning effect.
Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). The exposure compensation amount can be set up to +/-3 EV in 1/3-stop increments.
Metering Modes: You can select from the following metering modes:
Continuous Shooting Mode: In Continuous Shooting mode, you can shoot up multiple images consecutively as long as you hold the shutter release button down. The number of shots and the shooting speed depends upon the settings:
|AF Type||Speed Setting||Frames per second||Format||Maximum Number of Shots per burst|
|One-Shot AF||High-speed||10.0 fps||JPEG||33|
|Servo AF||High-speed||7.4 fps||JPEG||47|
Self-Timer: The camera will record an image following a preset time delay after pressing the shutter release. The self-timer lamp and beeper will indicate a countdown before the picture is taken. You can choose from the following self-timer modes:
Auto Rotation: Vertical shots can be rotated automatically so that they are displayed upright during playback. The Auto Rotation feature can be set to On (computer), On (computer and camera), or turned off, if desired.
