Only a few days in the past Canon launched the EOS M50, their first mirrorless digital camera able to capturing 4K video. The issue when capturing in 4K is that there’s an extra crop of 1.7x and autofocus is proscribed to distinction detection solely and doesn’t use the DPAF system.
See all the particulars on the EOS M50 right here.
We received an opportunity to check out the EOS M50 at CP+ in Japan to see simply how a lot crop distinction there’s when utilizing the digital camera to document 4K UHD versus HD. In HD the digital camera doesn’t have any crop, however as soon as you turn to 4K UHD mode the EOS M50 crops.
We discovered that when utilizing a Canon 15mm-45mm lens and capturing at 15mm in UHD, to get the equal focal size in HD mode we needed to set the focal size at 24mm. Because the EOS M50 seems to be to be focused at entry-level shooters and VLoggers, this extra crop when capturing in UHD could be an issue when you want a large subject of view.
From my temporary time making an attempt out the digital camera, I discovered it pretty straightforward to make use of and it’s extremely small and light-weight. The touchscreen autofocus appeared to work properly in each HD and UHD video recording modes, regardless of the digital camera being restricted to distinction detection solely when capturing 4K.
