Many new televisions feature 4K Ultra HD resolution, which delivers far greater detail than HDTV. The EOS M50 camera can record in 4K UHD at 24 frames per second, which gives your videos a cinematic look similar to most movies and TV shows. To showcase your epic and special moments, a high-speed 120p mode is possible in HD. When shown at normal speed, this creates a slow-motion effect that can highlight fast action like sports or even delicate moments like the wind through someone's hair. 4K frame cropping lets you select a portion of the 4K video frame you've captured and create a high-resolution still image, all in-camera.
Built-in OLED EVF with Touch and Drag AF
In certain situations, like a bright sunny day, a viewfinder is preferable to a screen. The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder on the EOS M50 camera features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you're capturing. Its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology offers high-contrast, high-color images that can help properly display the scene you want to capture. Touch and Drag AF lets you use the rear screen as a touchpad while you're using the viewfinder, so you can choose what you want the camera to focus on with just a tap of your finger and without moving the camera away from your face.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
The EOS M50 is the first EOS M series digital camera to feature a Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD, which has a flexible tilt range ideal for high-angle and low-angle shooting, and composing and reviewing your photos. Tap the screen during Live View while taking photos or videos and thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the EOS M50 will quickly lock focus to that location in the image. Touch gestures can be used for zooming in or swiping through images you've taken, and easily accessing menu and quick control settings.
Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth Technology
The EOS M50 camera is designed to make using Wi-Fi connectivity fast and easy. It can transfer files directly to a compatible smart device using the Camera Connect app. Simply connect to the Camera Connect app^ to transfer images to your smart device, then share and upload from the device directly to various social media sites and web services or print directly to compatible wireless Canon printers. The EOS M50 also supports EOS Utility, allowing remote Live View shooting, precise focusing and easy setting changes right from your computer.
With its built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability, the EOS M50 camera connects directly to compatible Android devices as well as Canon's Connect Station CS100 device by simply touching the NFC icon located on the camera to the device.
Bluetooth pairing helps you connect the camera to compatible smart devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app, and to the optional Wireless Remote Control BR-E1 for remote shooting. This low-energy wireless connection helps preserve battery life while allowing remote control of the EOS M50 camera. It also sends continuously updated GPS location data from your phone, letting you geotag what you've captured so you can know precisely where you took that epic vacation photo. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi connection to use your phone as a viewfinder, as well as check and download previously captured photos and videos.
Wireless capabilities also allow users to use their compatible smart devices to remotely control the camera, which is useful for self-portraits and group shots or shooting from a distance as long as the camera is in wireless range. A variety of the camera's expressive capabilities are available to you: use different shooting modes; choose AF frame modes (single-point/face detection); shoot in continuous shooting mode; and utilize the AF button. Just connect to a compatible device using the free Camera Connect app to start capturing photos using remote shooting.
Automatic Image Transfer to Compatible Devices while Shooting
Backing up your photos and videos is easy with the EOS M50 camera, which can automatically send what you've captured to your computer and other compatible devices. After the initial setup with the Image Transfer Utility 2 app, all you need to do is leave your camera on when it's connected to Wi-Fi and the files will be sent without any further effort from you.
New DIGIC 8 Image Processor with Improved Auto Lighting Optimizer
The EOS M50 camera features the new DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which helps improve autofocus performance, enables you to shoot 4K UHD 24p video and aids with many other advanced features. It comes with an improved Auto Lighting Optimizer, which analyzes the image and helps minimize blown-out areas by maintaining color and detail in the bright parts of a photo. When set to High, it can even smooth the transitions between colors, helping you take impressively lifelike sunrise and sunset photos.
Silent Mode for Quiet Operation
Sometimes you don't want the sound of a camera interrupting the perfect moment, whether it's the bride saying "I do" or your newborn baby sleeping. Silent Mode helps you make sure your camera doesn't startle your subject by enabling capture with virtually no shutter sound. This means you can shoot precious moments without worrying about detracting from them.
Compact Standard Zoom Lens with Image Stabilization
The EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM is a compact, stylish zoom lens for EOS M series digital cameras. A special retraction mechanism shortens the length of the lens to just 1.76 inches (44.5mm) when the camera is off, to help make carrying and storing the lens and camera even easier. The quiet stepping motor (STM) design helps ensure low-noise focusing that's ideal for recording movies. The 35mm-equivalent 24-72mm range combines a wide angle for landscapes and big group photos, with a telephoto zoom for close-ups and detailed headshots. Carefully designed lens placement and special Canon coatings help keep ghosting and other lens flare from your images. The integral image stabilization (up to 3.5 stops faster) can help capture sharp images, even in low light and while taking panoramas.
Like other EF-M lenses, the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM features an AF+MF focusing mode that combines quick and accurate autofocus with the artistic possibilities of manual focus.
