How to Connect Canon m50 to Computer (using Wifi and USB)?
The Canon m50 is a single-lens, mirror-less autofocus reflex camera manufactured by Canon Inc. This camera is one of the most advanced cameras and is constructed in such a way that the picture is automatically transferred from the camera to the machine. Still, you need to build a setup between the camera and windows or Mac OS first to get through that process.
A wired connection between the Canon M50 and your device is simpler and more secure, but it may take too long to transfer because of its high resolution images and videos. A high-speed USB cable (Hey! It’s on Amazon) should do the trick.
Steps to Connect Canon m50 to Computer Using WIFI
Connecting Canon m50 to Computer
Step 1. Connect to WiFi Network
How to connect a Canon m50 to a PC?
The very first thing you need to do is connect to the same Wi-Fi network with both the Canon M50 and your computer. You then need to switch on the camera’s Wi-Fi button and set up your connection. You need to press and hold the Wi-Fi button on the camera to turn the button on. Then you need to click the button and search for your Wi-Fi network’s name.
It will get connected with the network after doing all the above things. You need to switch on Auto Send Images to Computer Mode when it is connected to the same network as your computer. You can install Utility 2 Software on your Mac or Windows computer to make it easily accessible.
Step 2. Pair computer and Canon m50 camera before starting to transfer your photos

In order to pass images to the machine from the Canon M50 camera, both of them must be coupled together. So, after you finish setting up the wifi link, make sure to start pairing them. You need to turn the Canon Image Transfer Utility app on for pairing and then allow the Wi-Fi option.
The camera will display a pop-up message asking you to enter an IP address when your camera and computer link to the same network. You must pick the Auto option and press the OK button. This will give both the Canon m50 camera and the machine the same IP address. Your pairing process will be successfully completed until it is finished.
Step 3. Assign Destination Folder on Your Computer
Assign the destination folder to your device before beginning the switch.
You should assign a folder if the pairing between the machine and the camera is done. If the m50 camera attaches to the device, the request for permission to move the images is prompted.
But you need to build and allocate a folder to the camera before you press ‘ok’ for it, so that if you attach the camera to that device, the images are automatically transferred to that folder. For all of this, it is very important that you assign the destination folder to store the image on the machine for the same reason.
