Canon M50 Autofocus Performance Review for Vlogging (when recording in 1080p)

I did a test on the Canon M50’s autofocus performance for vlogging in 1080p resolution. The Canon M50 has CRAZY GOOD autofocus, which makes it perfect for vlogging!

The autofocus performance is very accurate and very sharp! It uses Canon’s latest Technology, the Dual Pixel Autofocus System, which is the same Autofocus Mechanism used in the Canon 1Dx Mark II, a $6000 camera!

NOTE: although this camera does 4k recording; the autofocus in 4k mode is terrible. I would NOT recommend using the autofocus when recording in 4k.

Also, you can check out UTECHPIA’s Best Vlogging Camera buyer’s guide here:

I just got the Canon M50 to use as a travel vlogging camera. I’ve been comparing it to the Canon G7x Mark II which I’ve been using for a long time!

The camera with the kit lens is on sale now, It’s only $699 on Amazon right now! Link in the description below! My favorite feature about this thing is the awesome Auto Focus System that it has. This is a quick video to show you how crazy good the auto focus is!

To demonstrate the auto Autofocus. I’m going to attach the camera to a Canon 24mm f/1.2 Mark II lens using an EF-M to EF adapter.

Let’s go outside a test this baby out!

I hope you guys enjoyed that quick test!

Let me know in the comments below, how important is auto focus to you?

  • Thanks for the test! Seems like I'm deciding between this and the Sony a6100, but I have quite a few EF lenses, so won't have to invest in any new glass 🙂

  • I'm on this video because I bought a Canon G5X Mark II and the Autofocus it is terrible than I'm thinking to move on the Canon M50. I think it's terrible to watch a video with very slow autofocus like the G5X Mark II

  • I think the autofocus on the A6500 is far superior.

  • I shot a video blog on the M50 at 4K and the autofocus / face detection was terrible. I ended up having to reshoot it in 1080 and the focus was spot on.

  • i am interested in this camera. But why you need to use the EF-M to EF adapter? Where did you get your lens? Can I use my 24-70mm f/2.8 lens?? Thanks.

  • Great video! I have a question, how would I know if an external lens is compatible with the EOS M50? (or if I'll need an adapter). I'm thinking of purchasing one but I'm not familiar with lens-types and want to be sure that if I get an external lens (say 55 – 250Mm Telephoto for example), it does not have any compatibility issues. Thanks!

  • Hi. Great tutorial about the M50. How long last the battery in video recording in full hd?
    And, how the camera tracks the focus for walking people at large apertures (f1.8, 2.0, etc)
    I wonder how the M50 holds a face tracking of people with the 22mm stm at f2.0 or the 50mm 1.8stm lens.
    Can you do us a test like this?
    Thank you.

    Wicaksono Sukses Makmur 05/22/2020 1:56 pm Reply
  • thanks for posting. May I recommend using a ND filter and keep your shutter speed down to double the frame rate.

  • did you have the L lense set on MF or AF? and was IS on? i noticed on other videos the lens makes noises even the STM lenses when trying to focus. can you clarify if this is digital focus or a mechanical focus? what am i missing? (i have the 50mm 1.4 usm and 24-105 L) wondering if these will be silent like yours. please let me know. thanks!
