The Canon EOS M50 also known as EOS Kiss M in Asia is an entry-level mirrorless camera released on 28 February 2018 which features an electronic viewfinder, fully articulating touchscreen, and a 24MP APS-C sensor – the same used by its M-series siblings.

It has Canon’s infamous DIGIC 8 processor and offers expanded Dual Pixel AF coverage, 4K/24p video capture (with a 1.7x crop) as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. It comes with canons legendary Dual focus and has a crop factor of 1.6, which means when you put a 22mm lens on the camera you have to multiply 22 by 1.6 to get the real figure.
