Canon reveals 4K mirrorless EOS M50

Canon's new EOS M50 is a mirrorless camera capable of shooting 4K video that features Canon's Dual Pixel autofocus for the first time. It has a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor, 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder, 3.0″ Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD and can record in UHD 4K and HD 720p at 120fps. 

There's Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth, the ISO range is 100-25600, extendable to ISO 51200 and it features 5-Axis Image Stabilisation.

It has a maximum bitrate of 120 Mbps when shooting 4K (UHD) and up to 60 Mbps at Full HD when shooting at 50fps or 59.94fps. If you want to shoot at 120fps you can only do so at 1280×720 resolution at 52Mbps.

When shooting in 4K, there is an additional crop of 1.7x and autofocus is limited to contrast detection only and doesn’t use the Dual Pixel system.

The camera is aimed at Vloggers who want to move up from a smartphone so is an easy-to-use camera with lots of connectivity. 

The EOS M50 will be available to purchase from March 2018 and costs £539.99/ $780 for body only and as a kit with M50 + EF-M 15-45mm lens - £649.99/ $900.
