The Canon R50 is equipped with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, inherits the advanced object detection technology used in the Canon R6 Mark II and the new Canon R8, and uses the newer DIGIC X processor. New AI-based object recognition gives the R50 impressive autofocus capabilities.

The R50 has an OLED viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 million dots and a magnification of 0.96x. The LCD screen is a 1.62 million dot color TFT liquid crystal display with touch control capability.

The R50 does not have a fully mechanical shutter. Instead, the camera comes with an electronic front curtain shutter and an electronic shutter. The R50 also lacks built-in image stabilization, so it will depend on optics with optical image stabilization to reduce judder.

The R50 can record in JPEG and HEIF formats in addition to RAW and C-RAW. The camera has a maximum burst speed with a shutter speed of 15 frames per second.

The camera can also connect via UVC/UAC to computers as a zero-configuration webcam and streaming camera. The battery used is LP-E17, charging and power are possible from the USB Type-C connector.
