Hello. I just upgraded my 10 year old Camcorder Vixia HF M30 to an EOS M50.
I was wondering if the Mic input on the EOS M50 was a stereo line level input.
Searching google and forums gives no information on the (1/8") (3.5mm) jack information.
I want to output my audio, such as guitar and backing tracks directly into the camera for perfect syc.
there is nothing worse then guitar shreding that does not sync perfectly with the video.
I understand I can record my audio and add it in the video editor, which I do.
However, I want to input my (Focusrite Saffire Pro 14) output into the EOS M50 mic input, if it is able.
I also use a mixer sometimes for live video.
Thanks for any input, it's appreciated.

If you are creating videos, are you not using video editing software? Add the audio in post.
Add a slate prior to the shot. What's that? This is what the key grip gaffer does. He stands in front of the camera with a chalkboard, says something and loudly claps it together. That loud clap is used to sync audio and video in post production.
I have tested the stereo left and right and i can confirm that you are wrong!
Canon M50 has no left and right independent recording (stereo), it just mixes togheder any of the tracks (L+R) you feed in it via the jack input.
I bought a M50 camera after your statment regarding the stereo input.
So I bought a usless camera for my needs.
