The Canon EOS R50 is a new entry-level mirrorless camera aimed at content creators who want to upgrade from their smartphone, compact camera or DSLR to a more capable device.
It is well suited to beginners and less experienced users looking for an incredibly compact, relatively affordable yet still very capable camera for both still photos and video.
It has a 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor which is partnered with the very latest Digic X processor.
This is a pretty fast camera – 12fps burst shooting is available when using the R50’s first-curtain electronic shutter and 15fps when using the silent electronic shutter, both with continuous auto-focus and auto-exposure.
Note that this camera does not have a mechanical shutter, unlike the EOS R10 step-up model.
The native ISO range runs from 100-3200, which can be expanded to ISO 51200, and the top shutter speed is 1/8000sec.
Thanks to its Digic X processor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II autofocus system, the EOS R50 offers the same deep-learning artificial intelligence based automatic face, eye, animal and vehicle AF tracking modes as the full-frame R3, R5 and R6 and the APS-C R10 models.
On the video side, there’s 4K/30p recording oversampled from 6K for up to an hour and Full HD footage at frame rates up to 120p, which potentially makes the Canon R50 just as appealing to videographers as to stills photographers.
The Canon R50 features a 3-inch 1,620K dot resolution LCD vari-angle monitor with a touch-screen interface and an integrated OLED electronic viewfinder with 2.36M dot resolution, magnification of 0.95x and 120fps refresh rate.
There’s also a UHS-I SD memory card slot, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, USB 2.0 Type-C connector, micro-HDMI port, microphone port and the latest multi-function accessory shoe.
The Canon EOS R50 is priced at £789.99 / €829.99 / $679.99 body only in the UK, Europe and USA respectively and is available in black or white. It is made in Taiwan.
Ease of Use
The new Canon R50 is predominantly targeted at people who are either completely new to photography or those who have outgrown the photographic capabilities of their smartphone or simpler compact camera.
Joining the the R7 and R10 models, the EOS R50 is the third Canon APS-C crop sensor mirrorless camera to use the same RF lens mount as the company’s full frame cameras.
This is the main differentiator between these three APSC R-series models and the existing EOS M-series, which uses a different EF-M lens mount.
Consequently, you can either use Canon’s relatively new range of RF-S lenses which are designed specifically for the R50, R10 and R7 (and all future Canon R-series APS-C cameras), or you can use the more established full-frame RF lenses, with an accompanying change in the focal length due to the 1.6x crop factor involved with mounting full-frame lenses on an APS-C sensor.
In addition, Canon’s huge number of EF and EF-S DSLR lenses can also be used with the R50 and R7 by attaching the optional EF-EOS R Mount Adapter, which is very handy if you already have a large collection of legacy lenses.
What you can’t do, sadly, is use the EF-M lenses that were designed for the EOS-M system on the R50/R10/R7, which means that there’s no clear upgrade path for users of Canon’s first APS-C sensor mirrorless system other than to start over again.
It also means that there aren’t very many native lens options for the R50 and R7 – at the time of writing there are only three options, the super-compact RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM standard zoom which has a collapsible design, the more versatile RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom, and the most recent RF-S 55-210mm F5-7.1 IS STM telephoto zoom.
All three lenses commendably have built-in optical stabilisation and don’t cost the earth, but the maximum apertures are very slow and none of them are particularly wide. They’re fine if you’re just starting out and don’t already own any compatible Canon lenses, but we’d hope to see some more inspiring RF-S lenses launched as soon as possible in order to compete on a more level playing field with the likes of Sony and especially Fujifilm.
The 24.2 megapixel sensor in the Canon EOS R50 is a re-engineered version of a sensor design that has previously been used in many Canon models, including the Canon EOS M50 Mark II, the Canon EOS 850D and the Canon EOS R10.
Commendably the R50 benefits from using the latest and greatest Digic X processor, just like the more expensive R10 step-up model.
The ISO range for stills runs from 100-32,000, which can be further expanded up to ISO 51,200, exactly the same as the EOS R10. For video it goes up to ISO 12,800, expandable to ISO 25,600.
The EOS R50 is the latest Canon camera to support Dual Pixel RAW. This allows correction of the focus and contrast in the background using the Background Clarity mode and changing the lighting in portraits via the Portrait Relighting mode after capture, just using your finger/thumb on the EOS R50’s touchscreen LCD.
Somewhat amazingly at this price point, the Canon R50 features exactly the same next-generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system as used by the flagship R3 and R5 full-frame cameras and its EOS R7 and R10 APS-C siblings.
It has 651 automatic focus points and 4,503 manually selectable AF points, 100% frame coverage in Auto selection mode and 90% vertical and 100% horizontal in manual selection.
Impressively the EOS R50 can focus in light levels as low as -4EV (when used with an F1.2 lens) or with maximum apertures as small as f/22, which enables autofocus even when using ultra telephoto lenses with teleconverters.
Shutter speeds as fast as 1/4000s are supported using the mechanical shutter and up to 1/8000s using the electronic shutter, which is slightly slower than the 1/16,000s speed offered by the R10.
Thanks to its Digic X processor, the EOS R50 offers exactly the same deep-learning artificial intelligence based automatic face, eye and animal AF tracking modes as the R3, R5, R6, R7 and R10 models.
The Canon R50 can recognise and track eyes, and it works even if the person is wearing a mask, helmet or sunglasses. Subject tracking works for humans and also dogs, cats and birds, the latter even in flight.
The EOS R50 also has the ability to track vehicles, including cars and motorbikes. What’s more, if the driver is wearing a helmet, the AF system will lock on to that, ensuring that the most important subject is in focus.
Turning to the R50’s continuous shooting speeds, the camera can shoot at a fast 15fps when taking advantage of the silent electronic shutter, complete with full AF and AE tracking, which is 8fps slower than the R10 camera (23fps). Slightly slower 12fps burst shooting is available when using the R50’s first-curtain electronic shutter.
Note that neither the R10 and the R8 full-frame model that was announced alongside it actually have a mechanical shutter. This allows the camera body to be smaller, but may lead to less smooth bokeh when shooting at shutter speeds faster than 1/500th second.
The buffer is also much, much smaller than on the R10, only allowing bursts of up to 42 JPEG or 7 RAW images when using the first-curtain shutter at 12fps and 28 JPEG or 7 RAW images when using the silent electronic shutter at 15fps.
This compares badly to the Canon R10, which allows bursts of up to 460 JPEG or 29 RAW images when using the mechanical shutter at 15fps and 70 JPEG or 21 RAW images when using the electronic shutter at 23fps.
If you shoot a lot of sports, action or nature photography, the R10 would be a better choice because of its faster burst rates and much larger buffer.
The R50 camera only has a single, rather out-dated UHS-I SD card slot that’s rather inconveniently housed in the same compartment as the battery, a direct consequence of the camera’s small, compact design. In comparison the R10 has a faster, more future-proof UHS-II slot.
Just like the R10, in-body image stabilisation is unfortunately not supported by the Canon R50. Instead you have to rely on a mix of lens stabilisation (if the lens offers it) and/or in-camera digital stabilisation.
The R50 is Canon’s latest EOS camera to support the ‘next generation’ HEIF (High Efficiency Image File) file format, enabling images with 10-bits of data to be saved in a file the equivalent size of a JPEG, while suffering less compression.
Of course RAW files can be shot in tandem with JPEGs (or indeed HEIF files) as per usual – here with Canon’s own .CR3 (Canon Raw) file extension, which requires the likes of Photoshop or Lightroom to access and open.
The Canon R50 offers the ability to record up to 4K UHD / 30p / 10-bit footage internally with dual-pixel auto-focus and auto-exposure for up to 1 hour, which is less than the 2 hour time limit offered by the EOS R10.
It also doesn’t support the 4K/60p mode offered by the R10, although that suffers from a 64% crop which gives a frame similar to Super 35mm.
Full 1080 slow-motion recording at up to 120p with autofocus is also available (but no sound), which is actually something that even the flagship EOS R5 doesn’t offer.
Both live streaming on YouTube and vertical video capture are supported, the latter being ideal for reels and stories. Canon have also included zebra display during movie shooting, which can be used as a guide to exposure adjustment, especially for highlights.
Brand new to the R50 is a rather Sony-inspired video shooting mode called “Movie for close-up demos”, which as the name suggests can be used to automatically focus on anything that you hold up to the camera during recording, and then focus back on the subject when the object is removed from the frame or moved backwards.
Also new is Movie Digital Image Stabilisation (IS), an extra Digital IS mode called Enhanced which helps to keep handheld footage sharp.
Note that it achieves this by applying a crop that’s even more aggressive than the one applied in the normal Digital IS mode, so you’ll ideally need a wide-angle lens to use it.
The EOS R50 has a largely plastic body rather than the more substantial mixed polycarbonate/magnesium-alloy body used by the more expensive R7.
The R50 doesn’t offer any level of weather-proofing, so you’ll need to jump to the R7 if you need this feature. Note that the three RF-S zoom lenses are also similarly not weather-proof.
The R50 measures 116.3 x 85.5 x 68.8mmmm, making it quite a lot smaller than the Canon R10 and it’s significantly lighter too, weighing in at 328g body-only or 375g with both a battery and memory card fitted.
Due to rather its diminutive stature, the Canon R50 suffers from having a shallow handgrip that only just accommodates three fingers. If you have large hands, the R10 would be a better choice thanks to its much deeper grip.
There are no controls found at all on the R50’s extremely minimalist front plate, just a porthole for the AF assist light and a lozenge shaped button for releasing the lens.
On top there is a conventional shooting mode dial on the right-hand side to change the shooting mode, with the usual P, Tv, Av and M options, Movie mode, Creative Filters mode, and three options for less experienced users – a selection of Scene modes, the set-everything Scene Intelligent Auto mode, and the Hybrid Auto mode, which creates a short movie of the day just by shooting still photos.
The Scene Intelligent Auto mode is split into three – Creative Assist, Creative Bracketing and the new Advanced A+ mode.
Creative assist automatically offers the ideal settings for different scenes, while creative bracketing takes three shots with every shutter press to provide multiple looks for each image, varying the exposure levels and white balance.
In the Advanced A+ mode the camera takes multiple pictures at once and automatically merges them together to create an evenly exposed, processed file. It adjusts the shadows and highlights, set the exposure and contrast, reduce noise and also analyzes the scene for depth of field.
Note that this new mode only works with JPEG files, not RAW, and there is a noticeable delay whilst it processes the final image, which makes it best suited to static rather than moving subjects.
There’s a small On/Off switch over on the far-right, with the camera leaping into life almost instantly. The camera intelligently remembers separate settings for each of the movie and various stills settings.
There’s a small but responsive shutter release button at the top of the handgrip with a useful ISO button alongside it.
Behind that is the only control dial which is used for principally setting the aperture or shutter speed, and behind that a small, red one-touch movie record button.
The R50 doesn’t have either a second control dial or an AF joystick, as on the EOS R10, which reflects the fact that this particular model is targeted more at beginners and smartphone users.
Located on the far-right shoulder of the rear of the R50 are two classic Canon controls – the Auto-exposure Lock button (denoted by a star) and the AF area selection button which makes it easier to switch the autofocus point when holding the camera to your eye. The latter doubles up as the Magnification button during playback.
Underneath is the Info Button and then the shared Quick/Set button, which opens the Quick Control screen and provides instant access to 10 key camera controls.
The aforementioned d-pad with four navigation buttons surrounds the Quick/Set button with various options arranged around it, including exposure compensation, burst/self-timer settings, delete and the focus mode (AF/MF).
Completing the rear of the EOS R50 are the self-explanatory Playback and Menu buttons located underneath the navigation pad.
The Multi-Function Shoe on top of the camera provides data communication and power for accessories such as the ST-E10 Speedlite Transmitter, DM-E1D Stereo Microphone, and AD-P1 Smartphone Link Adapter, as well as acting as a traditional hotshoe for existing Speedlites and triggers via the AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter.
Just like the R10 model that it sits beneath in the range, Canon have included a handy built-in flash with a guide number of 6, so you don’t have to carry a separate flashgun.
The 0.39 inch, 2.36 million dot EVF on the EOS R50 isn’t the most cutting-edge technology wise, but it’s still fairly impressive to look through, working up to 120fps for minimal lag when shooting fast-moving subjects and offering an adequate magnification of 0.95x.
A proximity sensor is located alongside the electronic viewfinder, which automatically switches between the EVF and LCD screen. When the LCD screen is swung outwards, the EVF is cleverly turned off automatically.
The EOS R50 has a 3-inch, 1.62 million dot, vari-angle LCD screen, which tilts out to the side and faces forwards for more convenient vlogging and selfies. It can also be usefully folded flat against the back of the camera to protect it when in transit in a camera bag.
A tilting LCD screen always helps to encourage shooting from creative angles and it also helps make the EOS R50 ideally suited to movie-shooting. The screen actually offers more resolution than the one on the R10, although it’s still not exactly cutting-edge.
The LCD screen is touch-sensitive, allowing you to control everything from setting the AF point and firing the shutter, navigating the menu systems and browsing your images during playback. It’s a very precise, responsive system that’s a veritable joy to use.
On the left-hand-side of the camera is a single rubber flap housing the 3.5mm microphone jack. On the right-hand-side is a single, larger rubber flap housing the USB-C 2.0 port and a mini-HDMI connection – nearly all the things that any enthusiast photographer or videographer would need from an accessory point of view, with the notable exception of a headphone port for sound monitoring.
On the bottom of the camera is the shared battery and memory card compartment. The EOS R50 supports SD UHS-I cards via a single slot, which instantly demotes it below the EOS R10 which supports faster SD UHS-II cards.
The Canon R50 uses the same LP-E17 unit used by lots of previous Canon DSLR and mirrorless models like the 850D and 250D and the EOS R10. The R50’s battery life is 440 shots with the LCD and 310 with the EVF, versus 430 and 260 shots respectively for the R10.
With built-in Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy and 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi support, the EOS R50 can be easily connected to a smartphone and networks allowing high-speed file sharing and FTP/FTPS transfer.
The R50 can also be remotely controlled and even updated using Canon’s Camera Connect and EOS Utility apps and tethered to to an Apple iPhone via its Lightning port or a PC or Mac via Wi-Fi or USB-C 2.0. Live streaming to YouTube is also supported via wi-fi and Canon’s image.canon service.
Finally, it can quickly and easily be used as a webcam simply by connecting it to a computer with a USB cable, whereas with the R10 you have to additionally install the EOS Webcam Utility software in order for it to be recognised.
All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 24.2 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 8Mb.
The Canon EOS R50 produced still images of excellent quality during the review period.
This camera produces noise-free JPEG images from ISO 100 all the way up to ISO 3200, with noise first appearing at ISO 6400. The faster settings of 12800 and especially ISO 25600 display progressively more noise, but are still suitable for small prints and web images. We wouldn’t advise using the expanded setting of ISO 51200 though.
The RAW files were also excellent, exhibiting more noise than their JPEG counterparts but still producing very usable images from ISO 100-3200.
The built-in pop-up flash worked fairly well indoors, with no red-eye and good overall exposure. The night photograph was very good, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds and the Bulb mode allowing you to capture enough light in all situations, while the HDR mode works well in the right situations.
The various different Picture Styles and the ability to create your own are a real benefit, as are the range of Creative Effects, all of which can be previewed in-camera before you take the shot.
ISO sensitivity can be set between ISO 100 and ISO 51200 in full-stop increments. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting, with JPEG on the left and the RAW equivalent on the right.
The Canon EOS R50 has 2 different JPEG file quality settings available, with Fine being the highest quality option, and it also supports Raw. Here are some 100% crops which show the quality of the various options, with the file size shown in brackets.
Fine (7Mb) (100% Crop)
Normal (3.5Mb) (100% Crop)
Raw (26.3Mb) (100% Crop)
The available flash settings on the Canon EOS R50 are Auto, Flash On and Redeye Reduction.
Flash On, Redeye Reduction
Flash On, Redeye Reduction
The Canon EOS R50’s maximum shutter speed is 30 seconds and there’s a Bulb mode for even longer exposures, which is excellent news if you’re seriously interested in night photography.
The Canon EOS R50 has a High Dynamic Range mode with four different settings – AUTO, +-1 EV, +-2 EV and +-3 EV. The camera takes three shots with different exposures, changing the shutter speed for each one, and then combining them in-camera.
Canon’s Picture Styles are preset combinations of different sharpness, contrast, saturation and colour tone settings which can be applied to both JPEGs and RAW files. The seven available options are shown below in the following series, which demonstrates the differences. There are also three User Defined styles so that you can create your own look.
The Creative Filters shooting mode contains 7 different options to help spice up your images.

The new Canon EOS R50 is the smallest, lightest and cheapest model in the now extensive range of R-series cameras, with an even more pronounced focus on beginners and smartphone users than 2022’s EOS R10.
This is largely thanks to a much more simplified user interface and an expanded range of intelligent auto shooting modes, principally the new Scene Intelligent Auto / Advanced A+ and Sony-inspired “Movie for close-up demos” modes.
The R50 very commendably offers the same image sensor and processor and therefore the same image quality, video quality and autofocus performance as the R10. This includes the outstanding Dual Pixel CMOS AF II autofocus system with its deep-learning artificial intelligence that is also found on much more expensive full-frame models, which is pretty amazing at this price-point.
All of this is housed inside a body that is even more compact and substantially lighter than the already diminutive R10. Paired with the EF-S 18-45mm lens, it makes for a very discrete package that easily fits inside a small shoulder bag or even a capacious pocket.
The main downside of Canon’s drive to make the R50 smaller and simpler, at least for more experienced users, is a marked reduction in the number of external controls. There’s only one command dial and no M-Fn, Lock or AF On buttons or an AF joystick as on the R10, although the addition of an ISO button on the top-plate is welcome.
Instead, the R50 places an even greater emphasis on using the touchscreen interface to control the extensive range of auto shooting modes, which will come naturally to some but may prove frustratingly time-consuming for others.
Something that the majority of people will find annoying is the very small hand-grip, which provides just enough room to hold the camera with three fingers and is uncomfortable to hold for extended periods of time. We prefer the much deeper grip on the R10, but then that is a larger camera overall.
Other notable “downgrades” compared to the R10 include a slower UHS-1 memory card slot, no 5Ghz wi-fi support, reduced burst shooting rates with a much smaller buffer, no mechanical shutter at all, no 4K/60p video and shorter maximum recording times, and a slower 1/8000th shutter speed. Rather strangely it does have a higher-resolution LCD screen though!
All of this might sound like we’re rather moaning about the new Canon EOS R50, but despite the short-comings that we’ve pointed out, this is a great addition to the R-series camera range that further extends its appeal to less experienced users, whilst still offering the same still image and video quality and exceptional auto-focusing performance as much more expensive models.
