Only a few days in the past Canon launched the EOS M50, their first mirrorless digicam able to capturing 4K video. The issue when capturing in 4K is that there’s a further crop of 1.7x and autofocus is restricted to distinction detection solely and doesn’t use the DPAF system.
See all the particulars on the EOS M50 right here.
We obtained 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 digicam to document 4K UHD versus HD. In HD the digicam 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 appears to be like to be focused at entry-level shooters and VLoggers, this extra crop when capturing in UHD might be an issue in case you want a large discipline of view.
From my transient time making an attempt out the digicam, I discovered it pretty straightforward to make use of and it’s extremely small and light-weight. The touchscreen autofocus appeared to work effectively in each HD and UHD video recording modes, regardless of the digicam being restricted to distinction detection solely when capturing 4K.
