Canon EOS M50 Hands-on Preview


Canon's EOS M5 has widely been regarded as their most capable mirrorless camera. At least, that was until the Japanese giant announced the Canon EOS M50. This new EOS camera looks a lot like the M5, but it loses some dials, adds a vari-angle touchscreen and comes equipped with numerous internal improvements, including a new DIGIC 8 processor and the amply requested 4K UHD video recording capabilities.

The already excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF has been upgraded as well, now capable of delivering 143 points and covering a larger image area with compatible lenses. You can learn more about compatible lenses in our Canon M50 Hands-on Preview as well, so head there to learn more about the camera's other improvements, including its new compressed RAW option and in-camera RAW development.


We will of course bring you our full lab treatment once a production sample is available, so stay tuned for much more to come. We'll also be analyzing and penning more on their new C-RAW format then as well.

The Canon EOS M50 will be released in April in a variety of kits, starting at US$779.99. Click the "Hands-on Preview" link below for more information.
