Canon’s M-series is about to get an upgrade. After numerous models launched under the M-series – Canon’s line up of mirrorless cameras, word is that it will finally put 4K video capture into the lineup for the first time.
PetaPixel is reporting that Canon is set to introduce its first mirrorless cameras with 4K video capture. This could be a huge milestone for Canon as it will be Canon’s first APS-C sensor camera to have 4K.
Second, this could be Canon’s first affordable 4K camera; mirrorless cameras from Canon are generally priced around RM5000. This could end up competing with Sony’s A6500.
Canon has been saving the 4K features of its cameras for the high-end model so far. The cheapest 4K equipped Canon camera you can get today is the 5D Mark IV. While the other models make do with Full HD video. This is a stark contrast to the other players in the market. Sony has enticed users by offering a more affordable 4K camera to the masses with the A6300.
The device is rumoured to be called as the EOS M50. It will reportedly be using the EF-M mount and will be released sometime this month before the CP+ event take place on 1 March.
