This entry in Canon's renowned range of M series mirrorless cameras features 4K UHD capability for stunning movie footage, a Vari-angle touch screen so you can shoot dynamically and creatively, all driven by the power of Canon's DIGIC 8 processor. It's beautifully intuitive to use with a central viewfinder and highly responsive touch functions on the rear screen. It's supplied with a versatile lens with image stabilisation for super-sharp shooting straight out of the box, and you can wirelessly share your work with the full complement of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & NFC.
With a DSLR-sized sensor, the image is packed with 24.1 megapixels of exceptional detail, even when shooting in low lighting conditions. The power of the DIGIC 8 processor ensures superb speed and reaction times.
4K Ultra High Definition Movies
Shoot stunningly detailed movies with 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution. With four times the level as detail as full HD, your work is beautifully crisp and natural, and future-proofed as 4K becomes standard. And you can create stunning Time-lapse movies to capture dramatic sped-up scenes of crowd movement or the changing landscape.
Fast Burst Shooting
Shoot at a continuous speed of 10 frames per second to capture that perfect split second moment. And Dual Pixel CMOS AF gives you fast and accurate autofocus with precise tracking of your subject.
The M50 is ideally weighted for satisfying hand-held photography. The vari-angle screen gives you full scope to shoot from tricky angles and dynamic perspectives while its touch functions include Touch and Drag AF. The OLED viewfinder is central to the body of the camera to put you at the heart of the shooting experience.
Versatile IS Lens
The M50 comes with an EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, the ideal all-rounder lens for everyday shooting, from expansive landscapes to stunning portraits with beautifully defocused backgrounds. Image stabilisation built into the lens keeps your shots sharp and steady, compensating for blur and hand-shake.
With built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 'always on' low energy connection, you can easily share your work with friends and colleagues in an instant. It's made easy and intuitive with the Canon Camera Connect app (iOS and Android), which also allows you to use your smart device to control the camera remotely.
Lenses and cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
