When the Canon EOS M50 was first announced in February it looked quite intriguing. So we went over to the Canon stand during The Photography Show to check it out and have a bit of a chat. The EOS M50 is primarily aimed at beginners looking for a simple camera with powerful features. But it’s also ideal as a second, smaller camera for those shooting Canon DSLRs.
There’s been a fair bit of talk about Canon’s new EOS M50 mirrorless camera, from secret meetings to image leaks, and then specs. But now it’s finally official. Announced today, the Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera is here, and the specs are confirmed and final.
It’s nice to finally see some of the rumours squashed, and a couple confirmed. It also ends any speculation as to whether or not Canon were bringing back the eye-ball scanning autofocus viewfinder systems of the EOS5/A2e. They didn’t. It does look like Canon may have finally hit on the perfect combination of specs and stats to make the ideal vlogging camera, though.
After releasing a few images of what is reported to be Canon’s next mirrorless offering, Nokishita have released a few more images of the EOS M50, along with a pretty extensive set of specs, too. Overall, it doesn’t look too bad. 10fps shooting, ISO 100-25600, 4K video, CC-Raw, and “Pupil detection AF” which sounds an awful lot like eye-tracking.
Last month there was the invitation to the secret dealer meeting about some new Canon mirrorless camera. Then we discovered that this might be the EOS M50, capable of shooting 4K UHD video. Now, thanks to Nokishita we’re seeing what are reported to be leaked images of the new camera, and 470 EX AI flash unit, along with some specs.
