The new EOS R50 is the new entry point to Canon's range of APS-C sensor mirrorless cameras, sitting below the R10 as the smallest and lightest model.

Sporting a new design that's closest in size and style to the EOS M50 Mark II, the R50 features a 24.2 megapixel sensor, 4K/30p video, 15fps burst shooting and Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus II.

The Canon R50 will be available in late April 2023 priced at £789.99 / $679.99 body only.

The new Canon EOS R50 is the perfect gateway into the EOS R range for active content creators looking to level up from their smartphone to a dedicated, mirrorless camera. This do-it-all camera offers the complete stills and video package combining lightweight, compact design with a large 24.2MP APS-C sized sensor for thumb-stopping results. Shoot instinctively with Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus II that detects your subject, while UHD 4K 30p video oversampled from 6K lets you realise your movie ideas in crystal clear detail.

The ideal companion for those born to create.
