Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Eye Detection AF
The EOS M50 delivers improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF. A Canon tech that's renowned by vloggers and photographers worldwide for its fast, accurate autofocus that helps you get the shot in focus while recording get the photo you want right as the moment happens. When used with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, the autofocus area includes up to 99 AF points within an 80% x 80% range, and can be expanded up to 143 AF points to cover an image area of approx. 88% horizontal by 100% vertical when combined with select compatible lenses. The new Eye Detection AF analyzes the image and automatically determines where to focus based on your subject's eyes, helping to ensure a treasured headshot or once-in-a-lifetime moment with your best friend is captured in sharp detail.
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 or videos while recording your home movies or vlogs. 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.
24.1 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS Sensor with ISO 100-25600 (H: 51200)
The EOS M50 camera features a 24.1 Megapixel (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing high-resolution image and video files. At 24.1 Megapixels, the EOS M50's sensor delivers images suitable for enlargements with sufficient resolution for significant cropping. Whether making poster-sized prints, zooming in on a particular detail or making beautiful 4K videos, the EOS M50's sensor is up to the task. An ISO range of 100-25600 (H:51200) means images can be captured with low noise and high detail, even in dimly lit situations.
4K UHD* 24p and HD 120p** for Slow Motion
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.
* Shooting at 23.98p is possible. Shooting takes place by cropping pixels from the center of the sensor. Contrast detection AF is used.
** AF is fixed. Playback is 1/4 slow motion playback (29.97p).
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-colour 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.
*** The EOS M50 camera's EVF does not support a display change to the vertical layout.

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 colour and detail in the bright parts of a photo. When set to High, it can even smooth the transitions between colours, 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.
