Canon EOS M50

 

The Canon EOS M50 is the company's first affordable camera with 4K, but there are better mirrorless options out there for video.

Compact. 24MP APS-C image sensor. 10fps burst. 7.4fps with tracking. Wide focus coverage area. Vari-angle touch LCD. Mic input. EVF. Wi-Fi.

4K video is cropped with slower autofocus. Native lens options still limited. Limited shots when shooting Raw bursts.

It's about time that Canon added 4K to a consumer camera—it's currently only available in the pro-grade EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II SLRs and in its cinema cameras. But what's in the EOS M50 was not the right way to do it. Cropped footage is...

Canon EOS M50 Review

 

Canon's latest mirrorless camera is a curious beast, on the one hand offering several headline-grabbing features that promise to out-perform the company's own flagship model, whilst on the other falling short of its full potential.

Canon M50 Review: Canon releases their first 4K mirrorless

 

If you're shopping for an affordable mirrorless camera with a solid build, good ergonomics and (via an optional adapter) first-party EF-mount lens support, the Canon M50 has a lot to offer. Sporting a next-gen DIGIC 8 processor, the M50 is both swift...

Comfortable ergonomics and solid build; Versatile EVF and tilt-swivel, touch-screen LCD; Good image quality; Great performance for its class; New C-RAW format saves on raw file size; 4K video is an M-series first.

Somewhat limited dynamic range; JPEGs a little soft at base ISO, and more so at higher ISOs; Warm white balance under incandescent light; Poor battery life; Raw buffer is still shallow (but C-RAW helps).

Canon EOS M50 Review: A Surefire Mirrorless Camera

 

The Canon EOS M50 does a very good job in many ways, but it doesn't quite knock Sony's A6300 from the top spot, due to low battery life and lackluster image stabilization in video mode. And Sony's system also offers more lenses at this point. But the...

Very good photo quality, even in low light ; Excellent electronic viewfinder ; Easy-to-use swiveling touch screen ; Lots of shooting modes ; Includes hot-shoe for external flashes

Expensive ; Relatively smaller lens selection ; Video footage had some jitter ; Less battery life than competition

Consider it. The Canon EOS M50 offers novices and enthusiasts a lot to like, but it's pricey and will need more Canon lenses to make it a truly full-fledged mirrorless system.

Canon EOS M50

 

Canon EOS M50 review: A great option both for beginners

Compact size and light weight make it easy to carry everywhere ; Excellent image quality, with reliable metering and auto white balance ; Quick and accurate autofocus, even with adapted EF-mount DSLR lenses ; Easy-to-use interface that still gives...

Single-dial control slower to use than twin-dial competitors ; Overly contrasty viewfinder blocks up shadow details ; Poorly implemented manual focus magnification ; Very small range of native EF-M lenses ; 4K video is subject to considerable restrictions

In many ways the EOS M50 is the best entry-level EOS Canon has yet made. It’s a great option both for beginners and for Canon DSLR owners tempted by the advantages of mirrorless.

Canon EOS M50 review: M series finally gets credible

 

The Canon EOS M50 is a step up for the M series. It's taken time to get here, but Canon finally has a credible mirrorless APS-C camera on its hands.

Capable Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus ; Vari-angle touchscreen is useful (and stows for protection) ; Small size and lightweight ; Decent image quality

Poor battery life (three bar system bad for projecting remaining life) ; Simplistic autofocus features ; Limited lens range (of limited quality ; Too) ; Some touchscreen quirks

Canon EOS M50 review

 

Crikey, Canon's finally made a solid mirrorless cam for beginners...

Small and light ; Good viewfinder ; Looks like a mini DSLR

Dials and controls might be too limited for some ; Limited battery life ; Small selection of native lenses right now

It’s no mirrorless wundercam, but the M50 is a solid little performer and an ideal first camera for smartphone upgraders
