Canon EOS M50 first look

Posted on

Canon’s new EOS M50 is an entry-level mirrorless camera which includes a 24.1-megapixel APS-C detector, a built-in digital viewfinder, and completely articulated touchscreen. It’ll be available in white or black, and will price #649.99 using a 15-45mm lens, or539.99 body-only.

While Canon was producing mirrorless cameras for nearly six decades now, the business has given the belief it isn’t completely convinced by the idea. Specifically, it has seemed to shy away from creating versions which may compete directly using its DSLRs.

Now, however, we’ve got exactly the EOS M50, so maybe things are beginning to change.

But, it’s an SLR-like design using a built-in central digital viewfinder, together with a completely articulated touchscreen. It delivers a similar amount of outside control to the company’s ultra-compact EOS 200D DSLR — also, crucially, comes to the marketplace in a comparable launching cost.

It sports a brand new generation of this company’s Dual-Pixel CMOS AF detector, which will be effective at phase-detection autofocus across a broader section of the framework. In addition, it debuts the hottest Digic 8 chip, promising better-looking picture files together with additional features like eye-detection AF.

There is a fresh CR3 raw arrangement — that, like the present CR2 format, is capable of keeping 14-bit information with exactly the identical picture quality and at an identical file size. Nonetheless, it provides a space-saving full-resolution C-RAW alternative that claims file sizes 30-40% smaller, based upon the ISO. Much like the traditional raws, C-RAW may be re-processed in-camera following shooting fix any configurations mistakes, or impart another appearance to your shots.

Canon has also included a quiet shooting style which employs a completely digital camera — the very first time this has emerged on an EOS camera. Frustratingly, however, it is only accessible from a completely automated mode that is obtained from the SCN place on the exposure-mode dial. The camera can not seemingly be chosen in any other shooting mode, which seems like a missed chance.
