Create professional-grade videos with Canon EOS R50

The competition is getting intense as content creators are churning out some really good videos these days. Canon just released the entry-level EOS R50 designed for creators who are ready to elevate their video content game.

The Canon EOS R50 is a compact and lightweight APS-C mirrorless camera. The entry-level camera is packed with many fun, creative tools, and automated features, allowing users to create high-quality vlogs and images easily with minimal camera operation.

The EOS R50’s APS-C format image sensor is three times larger than the 1-inch sensor on the latest smartphones. This means sharper, more detailed images and videos, and less noise (graininess) even in low light. Users can also look forward to beautiful, natural-looking bokeh (shallow focus) effects.

With 24.2 megapixels, the EOS R50 is also capable of producing high-quality cropless 4K 30p video oversampled from 6K worth of data. Oversampling means more information to reduce artefacts and other issues, so despite your vlogging experience and skill, the image quality will look pristine and professional. 

Intuitive vlogging

Lightweight at only about 375g, the Canon EOS R50 is around the same size as the EOS M50 Mark II. 

The Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system, which detects and tracks people, animals (dogs, cats, and birds), and vehicles (motorsports cars and motorcycles) based on their characteristics just got even smarter. For close-up demos, the Movie for Close-up Demo mode quickly and automatically switches focus to the subject closest to the camera. 

Image stabilization

Get seamless, steady footage even when shooting handheld: The EOS R50 comes with not just one, but two different Movie IS (Image Stabilizer) levels (Enhanced and On) that digitally perform 5-axis camera shake correction, enhanced when combined with an RF lens with in-lens IS. 

When the monitor is in “selfie” mode, the default “Movie IS: Enhanced” mode optimizes image stabilization for handheld wide-angle shooting, correcting the unwanted motion that tends to become more obvious at the edges of wide-angle images. You can switch between two levels by simply tapping the “Wide-angle” button, to avoid excessive close-ups.

The Camera Connect smartphone app, which is fuss-free to set up, lets you easily transfer videos and JPEG photos from your camera to a smartphone either through a wireless Wi-Fi or wired USB-C connection. As the camera supports transcoding, which makes 4K and Full HD video files lighter, even high-quality video files can be transferred and uploaded to social media smoothly.

For the Kit, Canon EOS R50 carries an SRP of P54,998 and for body only, meaning without the lens, it is priced at P47,998
