« on: February 25, 2018, 11:02:06 PM »
New Additions to the Canon EOS Family include EOS M50 and EOS Rebel T7

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 25, 2018 – Upgrading from a smartphone camera to an entry-level interchangeable lens camera (ILC) can be considered to some people a daunting task. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, supports those looking to advance their skills by continuously developing and evolving its gear. Today, the company announced their latest additions to its all-encompassing lineup of digital cameras: the EOS M50 Interchangeable Lens Camera, the first Canon EOS M-series camera with 4K video recording which is four-times the size of full HD 1080, and the EOS Rebel T7, the latest addition to the wildly popular EOS Rebel line of entry-level DSLR Cameras, with an upgraded CMOS sensor to deliver sharp, high-resolution images to capture life’s key moments.

For photographers actively seeking to upgrade their skills, the EOS M50 is an all-around, entry-level camera with an extensive list of user-friendly features that encourages users to broaden their creative visions. Providing improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor resulting in less noise and high definition in low-light situations, and the capability of recording 4K video, the EOS M50 will capture crisp, photographic expressions in various situations.

“Our core goal when developing new entry-level interchangeable lens cameras for our consumers is to meld high-quality features and usability together. In listening to our customers, we believe we have achieved this goal with both the EOS M50 and EOS Rebel T7, ” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With enhanced features for photographers of all skill levels to enjoy, both cameras demonstrate Canon’s commitment to developing and manufacturing best-in-class quality imaging solutions.”

Additional features of the EOS M50 include:

  • New DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • HD 120p High-frame video rate
  • Built-in OLED Electronic Viewfinder with Touch and Drag Autofocus
  • Vari-Angle LCD touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi*, NFC** and Bluetooth connectivity***
  • Automatic image transfer to compatible devices while shooting*
  • New Silent Mode

The EOS Rebel T7 DSLR camera, featuring an upgraded CMOS sensor of 24.1 megapixel resolution, is the successor to the EOS Rebel T6. Offering easy sharing of high-quality photos and videos on social media sites, the EOS Rebel T7 provides continuous shooting up to 3.0 frames per second (fps), a nine-point autofocus system and a three-inch LCD monitor, offering users a multitude of options to capture and share life’s important moments.

Additional features of the EOS Rebel T7 include:

  • Built-In Wi-Fi* and NFC** connectivity
  • Scene Intelligent Auto Mode
  • Optical View Finder

For an additional cost, both products are also eligible for the reliable protection of CarePAK PLUS, Canon’s optional service plan, which includes accidental damage protection and Image Recovery, designed to retrieve irreplaceable images or videos otherwise lost or corrupted. CarePAK PLUS, along with all Canon camera service plans, is performed exclusively by Canon’s renowned service and support team.

Interested in the M50. Looks like it will be a neat little camera.

For the further cropping in 4K video, does it mean that it will use a small part of the censor but focal length remains the same as APS-C?

dpreview is reporting:

4K video at 1.6 crop with no DPAF at a bitrate of 120mbps h.264

the bitrate is actually decent, that's better than you get out of any of the Sony's (100mbps)

IMO the lack of DPAF is the one disappointment I see with this over anything else. it makes this a not-to-great option as a 4k vlogger camera.

Disappoinments! Disappoinments!! Disappoinments!!! as usual from the leader in digital imaging solutions

SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card UHS-I compatible WTF Canon?
4K UHD* at 24 frames per second
* Shooting at 23.98p is possible. Shooting takes place by cropping pixels from the center of the sensor. Contrast detection AF is used.

high-speed 120p** mode is possible in HD
** AF is fixed. Playback is 1/4 slow motion playback (29.97p).
I really don't know when these knuckleheads will catch up with the competition

It says silent shooting but there is no mention of an electronic shutter. Sounds like another gimmick. I would be happy to proven wrong here

Exactly.

It is 2018. UHS ll was introduced back in 2011 and it is expected to be in a camera in 2018.
