It would be best if you used supplied interface cable while connecting the device to the computer. Afterward, please turn on the computer before connecting it. Now follow the below steps:
Step 1: Turn on the camera, but ensure the camera is not connected to the computer before that.
Step 2: To display the menu, you must press the “Menu” button. Then, disable the camera’s Auto power-off settings.
Step 3: Now, you have to insert the interface cable into the computer’s USB port. Generally, ports location is different in different computer models.
Step 4: After connecting the interface cable with the computer, you have to connect another end of the interface to the Camera’s Digital terminal. Then turn on the camera’s power. Then if you are using windows, click the camera button in the taskbar. Afterward, start EOS Utility.
EOS Utility will start when the computer and camera can communicate with each other. If you don’t see the EOS Utility, click the icon (EOS Utility) in the Dock.
Let me mention that the message you will see might differ as it depends on a computer’s operating system or any software installed. In addition, it will also depend on whether the camera is connected to the computer the first time or connected previously.
When you find a window with options, select “Download images from EOS camera” and then select “Ok.”
Following these ways, you can connect Canon m50 to a computer (Using a USB cable).
Connecting Canon M50 to the computer using Using Wi-Fi and Canon Image Transfer Utility software
You can connect your Canon M50 to the computer using Canon Image Transfer Utility software (V.2), and you don’t need to reconnect with the same computer again. So, to connect, you have to follow the below steps simply:
Step 1: Activate Canon M50’s Wi-Fi, and you will find this option in the Menu screen. Then, you must activate the Canon Image Transfer Utility software on your computer.
Step 2: Next, you will have to provide a camera’s nickname, which will come in the computer’s list of detected Wi-Fi devices. If your camera already has a factory-set name like EOS M50, you won’t need to reset this.
Step 3: Now, you have to enable the “Auto send to computer” option, and at this point, the pairing between camera and computer should start.
Step 4: Afterward, choose your Wi-Fi network name, which will appear in the Camera’s Menu screen, and provide the password. Then you will be asked if you prefer to enter an IP address manually. Generally, you can leave this in auto mode and press “Ok.”
Step 5: A detected computer or a laptop’s serial number should come on the Camera’s Menu Screen. Then, select your computer.
Step 6: You have to open the Transfer Utility 2 Screen, get the Pairing Setup instruction on the computer’s screen, and click once to highlight the “EOS M50” line item. Lastly, click the pairing button.
However, you will see the “Setup Complete” screen within a few minutes on your computer. Then click ok. Like this, you can connect your M50 camera to your computer.
