(9 customer reviews)

canon EOS M50 Review – Canon EOS M50, Canon’s entrance level DSLR-style mirrorless camera, with some high-spec highlights, including 4K . See all reviews of Canon EOS M50 with its specicifiaction here.

The Canon EOS M50 packs a great deal of tech into its smaller body, and the reality it has a viewfinder – when such a large number of also estimated mirrorless cameras don’t – is a major selling point. Standard’s entrance level mirrorless camera stays a decent worth alternative for novices, if somewhat obsolete in territories like video. The Canon EOS M50 does a generally excellent activity from various perspectives, yet it doesn’t exactly thump Sony’s A6300 from the best position, because of low battery life

The Canon EOS M50, at first discharge spring 2018, marks another portion in Canon’s mirrorless arrangement of APS-C measured cameras. The M50 utilizes Canon’s Dual Pixel self-adjust framework. First created to improve video self-adjust in quite a while SLR line, Dual Pixel AF.

The Canon EOS M50 is a generally excellent mirrorless camera and its cost of Rs 61,995 is sufficient.

    I’m not a fan of buying something because it is new. I am a fan of buying things that solve problems. The problem I’m having is that I’m getting older and my heavy DSLR and long Canon “L” lenses were getting too heavy to cart around all day. So I made a list of Must have and Nice to have items.Must have: small, lightweight, interchangeable lenses (and a variety to choose from), fully articulated LCD, near zero shutter lag, raw processing, 8 shot buffer minimum, high ISO, viewfinder (with visible histogram), hot shoe.Nice to have: wireless remote, iOS app, GPS.This camera has all the items on both lists. (The GPS requires connection to a phone, and that drains the battery on both, so I probably won’t use it much)Then there are some unexpected bonuses. One is that Canon introduced a new raw format called CR3. It is highly compressed and lossless, so it will save considerable disk space. This is getting important with >20Mpixels on modern sensors (24 here, IIRC). The camera came out March 26. Adobe updated its software April 3 to handle it.You’ll get a lot of opinion on what make a camera a professional’s camera. Non-photographers judge by bulk, and that’s just stereotype. To me, a professional camera has better weather sealing, multiple memory cards and a large buffer (transfers image to the card). It would also have a bigger offset between the tripod screw and the battery cover. (So the battery could be changed easily without removing the tripod or plate.As for full frame, it doesn’t matter. Imagine an 8×12 picture, perhaps from a magazine. Then put a mat on it where the sides are 1 inch thick. The part of the picture you see now is 6×10. That’s what a 1.6 crop sensor does (in round numbers). The part of the image you see is completely unchanged. If the lens manufacturers just changed the numbers on the lens itself, no one would ever know. A lens marked 10mm becomes 16mm, but all else is the same. If you like the fisheye look, then you have to go full frame, but for pretty much anything else it doesn’t matter.As for video, that’s a matter of the buffer. Shooting at 30 frames a second means filling the buffer fast (just hold the shutter button down on the camera you have now and see how fast it fills). To make continuous images for video, any camera has to crop the image before even sending it to the buffer and then the card. So video means a tighter crop. Again, a pro might want a more video capable camera .The only glitch I ran into was with a third party lens from Tokina. The new software in the camera didn’t talk to the software in the lens, and so it generated an error message about the connectors not being clean. After returning the first lens and getting a second with the same problem I called Tokina and they told me about the mismatch. They said that they’re working on a firmware ujpgrade that will require me sending in the lens, but they had no due date on the fix. (I sent it back). If you’re considering a lens from them or any 3rd party, I suggest giving them a call first. When they fix it I’ll buy the lens again and update this review.EDITED TO ADD:1. Thing I miss the most: Port for wired remote shutter release. Yes, the smartphone app does the job but it burns the battery. Also, no way to take time lapse, which uses an intervalometer (and that feature isn’t in the app, even if battery wasn’t a problem)2. This Arca-Swiss compatible plate fits the camera and still leaves room to access the battery compartment.

    This is my first high quality camera. And, I am still exploring.Image quality and video quality seem really good.The full rotatable touch screen, mic input, and a good user interface makes it a very good deal for me, as I plan to do personal content creation.I considered the Sony a5100 as an option, but could not make the compromises and got this instead. But, the Sony a5100/6000 is great value for money even today, if you want it only for still photography.I got the m50 at around 51k on Amazon Prime day. I think you can wait if you plan to buy. In US it costs only 650-700 bucks, so the Indian price may reduce in a while.I would recommend the EF to EF-M mount adapter along with the Canon 50mm F1.8 STM lens, or even the EF-M 22mm F2 lens if you prefer the compact form factor (no adapter business). They do make a significant quality difference in portrait photography and further improve the sharpness of the camera. I would add some sample clicks in the future with my Nifty Fifty lens.The supplied carry bag is too big, hence I bought the Amazon Basics Carry bag for Compact Cameras, and that fits it well (even some of the other mirrorless cameras too). The m50 is now in a really compact package and I can take it along easily in my backpack most of the times.Update: May, 20191. Since now this is available at below 50k, with offers and discounts it can be owned at 45k, this is a steal in my honest opinion.2. Added sample photos!!! Particularly from the popular 50mm f1.8 lens, used with an adaptor.Update: September, 20191. I am enjoying the camera more and more, the camera has just the right amount of controls for a beginner.2. I came to know about Viltrox Speed Booster for M50. Adding a speed booster is an awesome way to make the camera much more capable. Planning to buy it, but would probably directly get it from US or China.

    Sony has made a loud-explosive bang on the camera industry with its mirrorless full frame cameras. While the Canon M50 doesn’t offer a full frame sensor, this small mirrorless camera PACKS a FULL PUNCH!Quite possibly the most underrated, and least spoken of camera on the market today! Unlike its traditional DSLR older brothers this new small Canon mirrorless covers 80% of its auto focus area (not just 19-65 cross points!), using the classic, and hands down best auto focus system in the camera market, with its “dual pixel auto focus”.When compared to my Canon t6i crop sensor digic 6 24.2mp this new digic 8 24.2mp is quite noticeably sharper, and colors are cleaner, brighter, and skin tones are just brilliantly smooth and pure! The flip out, fully articulating screen has the best touch screen in the camera industry, and offers functionality like; touch to auto focus, touch to snap a pic, move points of auto focus, and much more.The battery in this camera is small, but last very long! After one hour of shooting 4K still had a full charge!Micro HDMI out which is great if you want to par with a monitor or OBS self recording for live videos.Video format: IPB only.Video recording: 1080p up to 60fps and 4K 24fps. (While shooting in 4K there is a lost of dual pixel auto focus, and the camera switches to contrast auto focus. Also while shooting in 4K there is a 2.65 crop.)Picture. Does Raw and JPEG or RAW +JPEG up to a 6K equivalent image.Suggestions: buy this with the Canon EFM to EF adapter as there aren’t many EFM lens options. But there are plenty of EF budget lenses. My recommended favorite is Sigmas 18-35mm art, gives you a full frame picture look, with amazing depth of field!Negatives: in my opinion there aren’t any, if you consider the price for what you are getting. However,• 4K is cropped w/o the use of DPAF.• Single memory card slot.• Not to many lens options.• Grip is smaller than DSLR.• No headphone input.

    I bought this to replace my Canon 600D DSLR camera I purchased more than 6 years ago. Compared to 600D this camera is small, light weight and build quality is also much better. Initially it may take a couple days to get used to electronic view finder as there is a small delay (may be fraction of second). It takes excellent photos with punchy colours in JPEG and videos. I have yet to try 4k video as it fill up the card very quickly. The bundled kit lens is very compact and good quality for its price.If you are new to DSLR or already own an entry level DSLR you can give this one a try. The other comparable (mirrorless) cameras are offerings from Fuji. I had played with it Fuji cameras during a US visit, XT-20 is an excellent camera with great kit lens but about 30k pricey in India. I am not also sure about after sale service for Fujis in India, so did not want to take risk. Sony’s A6300 is also another comparable camera but it is 4 years old already. Since I already own a Sony RX100 P&S camera did look into Sony cameras further.I will stick with only the Kit lens for an year or so before buying other lenses. I’ll update the review in few months.

    It worked for couple of clicks and then suddenly stopped working. It is not getting switched on. Not sure what to do. Feeling regret of buying it online.*Amazon refunded 100% of my money and have taken back the camera.

    Overall great camera and is highly capablePros:-It is small, compact, light, very portable-Awesome picture and video quality-Hass lots more useful features.-Single shot at 10fps and Servo at 7.5 fps-720p slow motion at 120fps-Time-lapse video mode-The dual pixel autofocus-canon’s color science is also highly commendable-with a lens adaptor, it can be equipped with Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses.Cons:-Rolling shutter, lack of Dual Pixel Autofocus, and excessive crop factor in 4k-Max shutter speed is only upto 1/4000s-Doesn’t have an extra dial or buttons to customise more shortcuts-No 1080p slow motion at 120 fps-Battery performance is poor (but is expected in most Mirrorless DSLSs)-Have to spend extra cash to buy a lens adaptorI’d like to give 1 star the courier service (DTDC) which “delivered” the package. It took 12 days to ship it from Delhi to Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh. Others typically take 2-3 days for that kind of distance.

    Canon EOS M50 is the best camera for still pictures and videos. The camera is very handy and less weight than any DSLR camera. You can connect with your smartphone and operate directly from your phone. The picture and video quality is too good and the mic. of the phone is very good in quality. You can shoot outside without any external mic. For YouTuber this the best camera even from GoPro Hero 7 because the brand name is a matter. The battery will continue shoot videos at around 1hr 45 minites. So I want to suggest this camera for all. This is a all purpose camera and the price in Amazon is the best.
