The EOS M50 can be used to shoot ultra-high definition movies and with precision focusing even under low light conditions.

With the Touch & Drag AF, users can select and move the AF frame via the touch panel while looking through the built-in 2.36 million dot Electronic Viewfinder (EVF).

The Canon EOS 1500D DSLR will be sold with the EF-S18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens.

The EOS 1500D is suitable for beginners looking to advance from smartphone photography.

In full-auto mode, the 470EX-AI automatically aims the flash unit in an optimum bounce direction before firing off.

Designed for both advanced users and newbies to flash photography, the 470EX-AI’s smart AI bounce technology automatically controls the way light is distributed to eliminate harsh shadows, especially for portrait photography.
