GENERAL

The EOS M50 was introduced by Canon in February 2018. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Canon is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Canon.

SENSOR

The EOS M50 features a CMOS sensor in APS-C size that has an area of approximately 22 x 15 mm² (0.88" x 0.59").

This infographic compares the EOS M50's sensor to other common formats:

Infographic: EOS M50 comparing sensor sizes

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The EOS M50's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 24 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.

The Canon supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Canon's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The EOS M50 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

LENS

All compatible EF-M lenses can be mounted to the EOS M50.

Currently, approximately 7 EF-M lenses are available, not counting lenses by third-party manufacturers. Further lenses can be connected via suitable adapters.

MountCanon EF-M
VIEWFINDER

The EOS M50 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.

The magnifcation is c. 0.60x, an above average value for an electronic viewfinder.

The infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnification of the EOS M50. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size. The red frame indicates the largest viewfinder magnification in any digital camera on the market today (0.85x).

Tip: If the viewfinder image of the EOS M50 is fuzzy, us the little wheel next to the viewfinder to adjust the sharpness.

SHUTTER

The EOS M50's shutter speeds range from 1/4000s to 30s.

Max. shutter speed1/4000s
Min. shutter speed30s
SENSITIVITY

The EOS M50's sensitivity goes from 100 ISO und 25600 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

Additionally, the Canon's sensitivity can be boosted to 51200. However, ISO boosting will almost always lead to an increase in noise.

METERING

The EOS M50 supports all common metering modes.

The Canon will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The EOS M50's auto focus processor uses 143 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Canon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The EOS M50 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 5m (17 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Canon's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.

DISPLAY
EOS M50 display and touch screen

The EOS M50 features a monitor with a diagonal of 80.00mm (3.1 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The EOS M50's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the EOS M50, the highest supported resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS

The EOS M50 has Wifi connectivity already built-in. Use Wifi to transfer images to a smartphone or computer and to remote control the camera. With NFC, camera and smartphone can be paired without the need for passwords.

Another option to transfer images to the smartphone is Bluetooth (Note: Bluetooth connections will not always transmit images or videos with full resolution.)

Connect the Canon to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.

The Canon connects to your PC over USB 2.0.

What memory cards can be used with the Canon EOS M50?

The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.

With an average image size of 12 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 2670 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Canon EOS M50:

The EOS M50 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The EOS M50 doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. That would have been a plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Canon's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The EOS M50 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Canon EOS M50 works with a LP-E12 LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is an average 235 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the EOS M50.

The battery can not be charged while in camera. Instead you have to take it out of the camera and put it into the supplied dedicated charger.

DIMENSIONS

The Canon EOS M50's dimensions are 116.3 x 88.1 x 58.7mm³. (4.6" x 3.5" x 2.3"). That's the body only, without lens. The camera's weight is a reasonable 387 grams (12.5 oz.). Add to this the weight of the lens.

SIZE COMPARISON

To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).
