Rumor: First pictures and specs of Canon’s upcoming EOS M50 leaked

Rumor site Nokishita is at it again, and this time they’ve uncovered specifications for what looks to be a new mirrorless camera from Canon – the EOS M50. This looks to follow the design of the EOS M5 quite closely, though it seems the camera will gain a new type of RAW format – CR3 RAW. This new format is supposed to provide 40% better compression than the previous format.

Here are the rest of the specs:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • DIGIC 8
  • 4K video recording
  • ISO range 100-25,600 (expandable to 51,200)
  • Burst shooting of up to 10fps (7.4 fps with servo AF activated)
  • 2.36 mil dot organic EL EVF
  • 3” 1.04 mil dot variable angle touch panel
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC support
  • Estimated international availability -27th February

Nokishita also reports on a new 470EX-AI speedlight, but other than a picture of the flash, no other information is provided. The launch date seems to coincide with next week’s CP+ though, so it does seem possible that we’ll get more news then.
