Top quality sensor and lens

To rack up followers, you need great content. But the first step is to make sure your photos and videos are the kind of quality that stand out from the crowd. The Canon EOS R50 Mirrorless Camera comes with a 24.2MP APS-C sized sensor which lets you capture professional quality stills and stunning 4k video at the click of a button.

The all-purpose RF-S 18-45 mm f/4.5-6.3 lens is a perfect match for vlogging, travelling and taking snaps on the go — ready for uploading to your social channels.

Create wherever you go

There was a time when shooting on the move used to mean lugging around tons of heavy kit. But the Canon EOS R50 is built for creators looking to make content on the move, with a compact and portable design, weighing only 375g. And with the Canon Creator Kit, you get an attachable microphone and tripod too. You’re all set!

Forget the camera crew. Pop your Canon kit into your backpack and you’ll have everything you need.

Stay focused

No need to be a professional for super sharp pics and video. Focusing is handled automatically thanks to the R50’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF II. It recognises and tracks subjects super quickly for reliable focusing - so your vlogs and photos stay crystal clear.

You can also hook it up to your laptop with USB and the EOS R50 turns into a top-quality webcam for video calls or streaming to your fans. And there’s no complicated set up. Just plug in and play!

Shoot in any format

To upload on YouTube and Instagram, content creators have to shoot in loads of different formats. The smart R50 knows when it’s filming in horizontal or vertical and automatically swaps to fit the correct format.

And video is stunning without losing any quality. That’s because the R50 can film in UHD 4K 30p video with 6K oversampling which is then scaled down to 4K without any cropping. Even Marques Brownlee will be jealous!

Instant editing

No need to spend hours on Photoshop touching up photos. The R50 comes with creative bracketing that gives you multiple edits for each image you’ve shot. So, all you need to do is pick your favourite one.

If you prefer to do the editing yourself, simply transfer the high-quality images to your phone via the Camera Connect app.
