February 2018 saw the release of some great new gear from camera-power house Canon. Amongst those was Canon’s first-ever 4K mirrorless camera; the Canon EOS M50.
The EOS M50 features a 24.1MP APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and a new Digic 8 processor. This Dual Pixel technology allows for speedy, sharp, and smooth autofocusing when shooting photo and video. As well as this, the M50 also features a built-in OLED electronic viewfinder.
The swivelling LCD touchscreen, which can also be used for touch and drag autofocus, makes the M50 great for 4K documentary filming and the selfie obsessed photographer. And, speaking of filming, when it comes to video recording the M50 shoots 4K at 24fps, 1080p at 60fps, and 720p at 120fps. Not bad!
Other great features included Wi-Fi/NFC/Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a new silent mode with virtually zero shutter sound, eye detection autofocus and an intriguing CR3 Raw format. This brand new file format is a C-Raw format that produces up to 50% smaller files with the same resolution.
Competition will be tough though for Canon, as they now enter the same market that saw Sony dominate in 2017 with some incredible releases such as the Sony A9; featured in our 8 Game Changing Cameras of 2017.
The Canon EOS M50 will be available to buy from April 2018 at canon.co.uk, costing £649.95 for body and EF-M 15-45mm IS STM Lens. Stick with us and you can find many great EOS M-compatible accessories such as body caps, extension tubes, digiscoping kits, lens adaptors and much more!
