The fact of the crop factor doesn't make it fake. Rather than shooting through the middle of some clinical DSLR optic, with c-mount lenses you get to see the full image circle and a bit beyond, even on a sensor considered small by photography terms. Focal lengths aren't advertised based on the sensor size they're made for. Apple M1 crushes Intel – beats $6000 Mac Pro 2019 and 10 core Intel i9 MacBook Pro 16″, Down the rabbit hole – View the YouTube front page as others do, Apple M1 promises full-quality 8K ProRes playback in DaVinci Resolve 17 “without dropping a single frame”, Shooter's Guides / LUTs / Colour Profiles, A great match for Super 16mm lenses due to 2.34x crop 4K, Superb Canon colour science and custom picture profiles, H.264 100mbit 4K codec instead of the usual huge Canon MJPEG file sizes, Good AF performance with adapted EF lenses, Super 35mm 1080p quality is behind the times, No Dual Pixel AF in 4K mode, despite a lot of target customers for this camera needing it (YouTubers,v-loggers), 2.34x crop in 4K will bother those with Canon lenses (goodbye wide-angle), Rolling shutter distortion above average in 4K. YouTuber shooters often need to go wide for vlogging. It's always been behind when it comes to spec sheets. But it's more reliable and stable without cramming too much un tested gear into one product. All entry-level smartphones and gopros don't have inter-changeable lens. Alex Armitage People care so much because the only thing they get after spending big money on canon lenses is a middle finger from this company. You would feel abused so I have no issue calling this fake. Menu > Camera > 5 > IS settings > Digital IS > disable. And the way Canon cripple some product to avoid cannibalizing others are really unwise. Canon never mentions the crop and DPAF removal from the specifications list, this is misleading and dishonest, especially when they emphasis heavily about the 4K feature everywhere on their marketing materials. Canon EOS M50 equivalent aperture: Aperture is a lens characteristic, so it's calculated only for fixed lens cameras. Look man. (C) 2020 - Todd Dominey. It’s beyond that. How much longer must video shooters go on taking these middle fingers from the market leader? This is misleading and makes it very difficult to achieve any wide shots since lenses are designed to over the entire sensor. I’m too busy eating cookies and complaining about Canon on Twitter and YouTube. The same lens looks different on each of them. They also need the absolute best in video AF technology, which Canon decided not to bother with in 4K on the M50. Some links in this post are affiliate links. Below I’ll explain how to work around these limitations and how to set up the M50 for 4K filmmaking. 18.5, 25, 35, and 50 give roughly the same FOV mounted on their respective cameras. Dual Pixel AF is only available in the poor quality 1080p mode like the predecessors. The Canon M50 with the EF adapter and the EF-S 10-18mm. Their lens line can be used by other brands with AF. Another missed opportunity for Canon to dominate the gimbal work sales. I agree. So by now, you may be wondering, is the Viltrox Speed Booster and shooting in 4K on the M50 worth it? Nikon facing serious crisis in chipmaking – as well as camera business, Pro camcorder ergonomics are overdue a big change. New! Most of these people have not used, nor are planning to buy, the articles they criticize just to get a reaction. To illustrate the crop, see the composite image below. I shoot Canon and I'm fine with it. M43 cameras have plenty of lenses designed for the native 2x crop (eg. EOS M50 Video Options. That’s not the end of the bad news – the battery life rates as one of the worst on record for a modern mirrorless camera. Canon EOS R: The 4K 1.7x Crop Monster — Oh, no! If you have a lightweight, wide-angle EF lens that supports auto-focus, then yes it’s doable. It is a 2.56x crop, making a wide angle 18mm EOS M or EF-S lens a 46mm equivalent portrait lens in terms of field of view. In many ways, Canon included all the features we’ve been wanting on their high-end DSLRs into this small, inconspicuous body. Sony FX6 is here, but will you still have a job to go with it? So the crop is certainly by no means only negative. However, since most entry-level smartphones and GoPro knockoff can now deliver 4K, I would be inclined to blame the “Executive Crippling Department” at the company headquarter. As we know, Canon do colour science *right*. Then don't buy it. That’s the great thing about 4K. Go figure. You couldn’t really do that in 1080p especially Canon’s soft brand of 1080p that barely looks like decent 720p! The affordable M50 even pioneered many of the features that were later implemented in the $2500 Canon EOS R! That will tell you which EF lens has nearly the same focal length.). Sergio Tello Next time I'll just copy/paste the content from the canon brochure and press kit. That accessory is the Viltrox EF-EOS M2 Speed Booster. Wow. I wouldn't use or buy this camera, since it's 2015 tech at best at 2020 pricing. But for most users, the 4K crop is annoying. With a lot of the third party film profiles that have a raised black level, it reveals quite a lot of fixed pattern noise and even a split down the middle of the sensor as if there’s two sensors stitched together. The M50 has a small, recessed, record button, which can be hard to find by touch. A relevance which is already dangling by a thread. Quite by accident, it’s a fun to use 4K point and shoot. It has nothing to do with liking one brand more than another. The M50 has a built-in electronic stabilizer. Despite being a matching "small format lens", that 22mm lens still has a has a 35mm FOV due to crop factor. The brighter image on top is in 4K. For more, check out the rest of the Canon M50 Video Guide. Check out the Fstoppers Store for in-depth tutorials from some of the best instructors in the business. It’s hardly the Super 35mm look offered by other manufacturers in 4K, with much better autofocus. The internet perpetuated and totally unscientific (and pointless) practice of this so called “equivalence” between formats based on focal length is the quickest way of figuring out who actually knows what they are writing about and who is simply regurgitating nonsense they have read on forums and articles. Dual pixel auto focus is one of the biggest reasons Canon is still relevant in the video realm as far as DSLR video. It will disappoint a large number of Instagram and YouTube content creators who know the bare minimum about video because 4K will be virtually unusable for these people on the M50. If you enjoyed the look of the Digital Bolex it is probably at least 50% down to C-mount lenses like these and I try to show what’s special about them in the video above. Dual Pixel AF packs up and goes home in 4K. What the Viltrox does is demagnify the image before reaching the sensor. Alright, so some final thoughts to summarize. My friend, the only time a focal length of a lens changes is when you use a zoom lens. For sake of simplicity, we're going to calculate it in 3 stages. Crop factor or focal length multiplier is calculated by dividing the diagonal Yes, it has 120fps slow-mo but it is not very good (only 720p) and sure it has 1080p with Dual Pixel AF but in no better quality than the older 80D. It seems like the people who complain the most don't even shoot Canon. Note that the Viltrox Speedbooster will not work with APS-C (EF-S) lenses, only EF lenses. On the M50 in 4K, a 25mm c-mount lens is around 55mm equiv. Rolling shutter is definitely on the high side in 4K. The ergonomics are direct and responsive, no fussing around and it’s a very light body – especially if you’re using it with a C-mount lens. But this adapter actually does much more than that. That was a 2.3x crop and the M50 is a 2.34x crop. It is a 2.56x crop, making a wide angle 18mm EOS M or EF-S lens a 46mm equivalent portrait lens … The other thing that absolutely made the Digital Bolex was the colour rendition. Thankfully, there’s an accessory you can pick up which removes the crop and makes 4K video on the M50 appear almost exactly the same as 1080 HD. hahahaha I think that either Fstoppers hired the wrong writer or the editors should have said no to this article. I think this the strongest use case for the Viltrox, because it does improve image clarity and sharpness, and again, you have more flexibility with that 4K footage in post when downscaling for a 1080 video. The EVF is small but on the other hand it is extremely sharp and detailed with a very clean image from the sensor, so a good job there by Canon.
