Leaked: Canon EOS M50 Image & Specifications
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:07:43 AM »
The first image and specifications for the Canon EOS M50 have leaked out.

I noticed a few things about this release that really caught my eye.

  1. A new RAW format? I wonder what .CR3 is going to bring us.
  2. DIGIC 8 already? Canon must have made a breakthrough in processing speeds.
  3. New generation sensor? The EOS M50 sensor is 24.1mp, the previous APS-C sensor from Canon is 24.2mp

EOS M50 Specifications: (Google Translated)

  • 24.1 Megapixels APS-C CMOS (New sensor? EOS M5 is 24.2mp)
  • Dual pixel CMOS AF
  • DIGIC 8

  • EVF: 2.36 million dot organic EL
  • 3 type 104 million dots Bali angle touch panel liquid crystal

I wonder what the price will be and how the autofocus tracking is? This looks like a promising m equivalent to the 80D.

Overseas means "some country outside of japan" here.

Aren't these specifications a bit superior to the EOS M5? What's the catch (presumably, fewer control points, polycarbonate body and no weather 'sealing')?

Still, if this is true and the price is reasonably lower than the EOS M5's current street price (i.e. not just $75), it would be a bit of a steal and a very positive sign that Canon is serious about both mirrorless and solidly competitive specifications across the range.

Why not just the M5 mk II?

Will wait to see price and 4K specs, but looks like it may be at least partially on par with the Sony A6500.  If there was an official EF>EF-M speedbooster (not just adapter) that complemented this, it could be a crowd pleaser for the short term.

It seems M5 mark II is going to be a BEAST, but will probably go up in price too
2018 - 7DIII & 5DsII  2019 - 90D & M5II  2020 - 1DxIII & 5DV  2021 - 6DIII  2022 - 7DmIV, me Q3 2017
So going forward we will proactively, and let me emphasize that PROACTIVELY work on expanding our lineup of EF-S or EF-M lenses Masaya Maeda, September 2015
EF-S f/2.8 Macro IS - only EF-S lens since

Looks like a fine camera, but personally I don't care about 4K video or slightly enhanced servo stills shooting speed. Smaller RAW is nice, I guess, but mostly I shoot JPEG anyway. Not sure why the size of a raw file has any logical relation to the size of the camera?

So not sure why I would update from my M5. Wish it was weather resistant.

And where are the decent EF-M prime lenses (buzz buzz)? IMHO that's what the system really needs, and has needed for quite a while now.

The first image and specifications for the Canon EOS M50 have leaked out.

it will be interesting to see the rest of the images, specifically of the back side and top.

it appears that canon has adjusted the ergonomics for this to be a video -> stills versus a stills-> video bolt on if you note the location of the record button.

with what appears to be lower level ergonomics this sits kind of under an M6 in terms of ergonomic functionality however with an included EVF and variable angle display for video.

of course the big news is possibly DIGIC 8 bringing hopefully efficient 4k video to Canon ILC's.  it has to be more efficient than the 5D Mark IV etc simply because it's SD card.

My guess is that they released this to get the EF-M line up to include 4k after Fuji seems to be doing great things in that market, and more than one whisper said that Canon / Nikon are more worried about Fuji than Sony.

Why it's not the M5 Mark II? probably because it' *only* has really minor updates from the M5 outside of video and CR3 format, and no new sensor generation.

If a new sensor generation is coming out this year, it makes sense to hold off the M5 update, IMO.

This isn't above the EOS M5, it'll be priced around the current EOS M6 prices I think.

A new prime is coming in September for Photokina.

If this spec'd camera is around $800, I think this is a promising sign going forward for Canon. Really interested to see how much of a change .CR3 and C-RAW is.

I wonder if the CR3 format is to bring out the data from both sides of the dual-pixel design?

CR3 RAW format is the single most fascinating thing about this camera.

The Digic 8 with a rate of about 240Mpixel/sec  (24.1 X 10)  brings the same rate of a Dual Digic 6. See 5Dsr with Dual Digic 6 having a rate of 50.1mp X 5fps ~ 250Mpixel/sec.

Encouraging for the processing speed of future cameras that may even have a Digic 8+, Dual Digic 8 or Dual Digic 8+

I mention these because I hope for a much faster 5DsRMkII (although if pushed to 60Mp I expect it to be around 6fps) and 5DMkV (OK that will take too long and maybe it will have a single Digic 9+   ;D ;D ;D )
