How to adjust Canon M50 landscape settings?

The Canon Eos M50 is an entry-level mirrorless camera that packs quite impressive features, like an electronic viewfinder, fully articulating touchscreen, single control dial, and a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor.

It equips a new DIGIC 8 processor and gives you expanded dual pixel autofocus coverage for stills and 1080p video. For image sharing, you can use Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi.

Other feature includes Eye detection mode. AF-S, a new silent shooting scene mode is present.

Also, the M50 is the first canon to use the new CR3 Raw format with an updated compression option called C-RAW (Compressed RAW). It replaces the Non-fully-function M-RAW and S-RAW formats.

STEP 1. Choosing the right equipment

With a mirrorless camera like the Canon M50 flip screen and a wide-angle lens such as EF-M11-22mm f/4.5-6 IS STM (Hey! It’s on amazon), you can capture a landscape image with refined details and rich colors.

If you need a slow shutter speed, long exposure, or wish to avoid blurry images, use a tripod.

STEP 2. Include Human element in Landscape photography

Usually, people are not included in landscape photography, but you can add human elements to your landscape photography to give viewers a sense of life in your photos.

A human element can change the story of landscape pictures or even create a story. People may not be the main focus here, but if you can properly use them, they can catch viewers’ interest.

STEP 3. Depth of field

To capture the best landscape photo, you must know about the Depth of Field. 

DoF(DEPTH of FIELD) is the distance between the nearest and the furthest elements in the scene that appears to be sharp in the captured image.

The easiest way to achieve depth of field is by playing with Aperture. Use a wider aperture to reduce DoF(DEPTH of FIELD) and a smaller aperture to increase it.

You cannot choose the aperture based on the depth of field criteria all the time, as it depends on the photo. Sometimes, certain factors will limit your aperture choices.

STEP 4. The Golden Hour

The golden hour undoubtedly is the best time for landscape photography. It refers to the time of the day around sunrise or sunset.

When the sun is near the horizon, the light looks stunning, making long shadows and creating interesting patterns and dimensions.

The Canon M50 is one of the best camera ideals for you if you are into landscape photography.
