Canon EOS M50

No reviews
Verdict: Canon's mirrorless lineup has been around for a couple of years now, but the company has taken its own sweet time in bringing the series up to speed with the latest features. Meanwhile, others like Sony and Fujifilm have embraced the mirrorless segment with open arms, delivering some truly...
Pros: Light and compact body, Fully articulating display, Above-average image quality in daylight, Dual Pixel autofocus works well
Cons: Weak battery life, Slow autofocus at 4K, Average high-ISO performance

Canon EOS M50

4.4
Verdict: The EOS M50, which was announced on 26 February, just before the CP+ show, is the seventh model in a line which began back in late July 2012. Like the majority of its precursors, the latest model is targeted at snapshooters, with particular focus upon travellers who want a wide range of Auto...

Canon EOS M50

No reviews
Verdict: The Canon EOS M50 may be the newest entry level camera in the M lineup for Canon, but it's already the most advanced. With features like 24.1MP APS-C CMOS image sensor, this little camera can record 4K (1.6x cropped) video, Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus with a whopping 96 focus points, and 720p HD video...

Canon EOS M50

No reviews
Verdict: The Canon M50 has to be one of Canon's best mirrorless camera options yet; but at the moment of writing this review, it still feels like Canon is intentionally holding themselves back for reasons that I genuinely don't understand.

Canon EOS M50 review: Compact, but with DSLR versatility

4.0
Verdict: Canon EOS M50 review: This mirrorless camera is really compact, and yet can pass off as a point-and-shoot device.

Canon EOS M50

3.5
Verdict: The EOS M50 is a new entry-level compact system camera from Canon. The EOS M50 has a 24.1 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, the very latest DIGIC 8 processor, 4K video recording, a touch-screen interface, 99-point AF System, ISO 100-25600, a 3-inch 1,040K-dot LCD vari-angle monitor, integrated Wi-Fi,...

Canon EOS M50

4.0
Verdict: At first glance, the Canon EOS M50 could pass for a smaller, less expensive version of the company's EOS M5. Despite the surface similarities, the real changes are inside. The M50 is the first Canon camera to use the Digic 8 processor and the only non-pro model to support 4K video capture.
Pros: People on the go who want something compact, with good connectivity and an accessible interface
Cons: Anyone interested in 4K video capture. Those without easy access to a power outlet and don't want to carry a pocket full of batteries

Canon EOS M50 Review

No reviews
Verdict: It was an unusual day that started with a moderately heavy spring snow storm. I didn't have much time to go out and photograph the storm, but the M50 was handy with the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens already mounted.

Canon EOS M50 review

No reviews
Verdict: The Canon EOS M50 is an upper entry-level mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, confident autofocus (for stills and 1080p video), small but crisp OLED viewfinder, excellent wireless, and becomes Canon's first mirrorless with 4k video, a fully-articulated touch-screen, eye detection and...

Canon EOS M50 review: Great for beginners

4.0
Verdict: Canon may have been late to the mirrorless party, but over the last couple of years, it has taken a significant share in this ever-important market. The EOS M50 is an entry-level model that falls between the (£400) EOS M6 and the (£600) EOS M5 , offering beginners a small and affordable camera with...
Pros: Easy to use, Fast in operation, Strong set of features
Cons: Relatively poor battery life, Kit lens is susceptible to flare

Canon EOS M50

No reviews
Verdict: The EOS M50 is only the second EOS M model to have an electronic viewfinder; it's the first to shoot 4K video; and it's being sold at a pretty competitive price. This could be the EOS M camera where Canon has finally got the balance right.

Canon EOS M50

No reviews
Verdict: Sometimes you don't want the sound of a camera interrupting the perfect moment, whether it's the bride saying "I do" or your newborn baby sleeping. Silent Mode helps you make sure your camera doesn't startle your subject by enabling capture with virtually no shutter sound.

Canon EOS M50 review

4.0
Verdict: In many ways the Canon EOS M50 is a better-specced camera than the EOS M5, with faster burst shooting, an improved AF system, and 4K video capture (more on that in a moment). The vari-angle screen also offers that bit more in the way of flexibility over the EOS M5's tilt-angle mechanism.
Pros: Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Polished touchscreen, Excellent EVF, Easy to use, Very good image quality
Cons: Poor battery life, 4K video has a 1.6x crop, Plasticky finish, Lens range still limited

Canon EOS M50 review: M series finally gets credible

4.0
Verdict: It's taken Canon a long time to advance its mirrorless line-up. For 2018 it's clearly a big year because in addition to the EOS M50 accomplishing more than its lesser EOS M models, the company also released its EOS R full-frame mirrorless line-up .
Pros: Capable Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, Vari-angle touchscreen is useful (and stows for protection, Small size and lightweight, Decent image quality
Cons: 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: A Surefire Mirrorless Camera

3.1
Verdict: Consumers are demanding mirrorless cameras because generally they're as good and as versatile as DSLRs, but are smaller and lighter. While that's one of the draws of the 24.1-MP Canon EOS M50, it's not the only one.
Pros: 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
Cons: Expensive, Relatively smaller lens selection, Video footage had some jitter, Less battery life than competition

Review: Canon EOS M50 camera

4.0
Verdict: It's fair to say Canon missed the start gun for mirrorless cameras, with Fujifilm, Panasonic and Olympus already well down the track and pulling away.

Canon EOS M50

4.0
Verdict: Canon's been making mirrorless cameras for almost six years, but until now it doesn't seem to have been wholly convinced by the idea, shying away from making models that might compete directly with its own DSLRs. Now, though, we have the EOS M50, and perhaps things are starting to change.
Pros: 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 extensive control over settings, Fully articulated...
Cons: 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

Canon EOS M50 Review

No reviews
Verdict: While the M50 is a solid little camera for the price, Canon has effectively set the bar for future DSLR and mirrorless camera offerings. Going forward, Canon can no longer justify the release of a DSLR or mirrorless camera without 4K video capture.

Canon EOS M50

3.5
Verdict: 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.
Pros: 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
Cons: 4K video is cropped with slower autofocus. Native lens options still limited. Limited shots when shooting Raw bursts

Better Than Canon Realizes

5.0
Verdict: I've just taken a few photos with my new M50, but a few things are worth commenting about already. It is super compact, yet capable of using all of my EF and EF-S lenses with the adaptor that I purchased with it. The M50 is almost too simple to use.

Canon M50 camera w/15-45mm&55-200mm Lenses

5.0
Verdict: Excellent camera. Was recommended to me by a friend because of the touchscreen that I could operate left handed. I have disabilities from a ruptured brain aneurysm that requires I be able to work most things left hand now. Just had it for about a month, but getting great shots with both lenses.

Great camera with amazing features for the price.

5.0
Verdict: After selling up all my previous Canon gear a few years ago, I found myself yearning to re-enter the photography world, only this time I have an interest in making videos too. After doing some research, and attending a Canon Event hosted by Simeon Quarrie, where we were supplied with loan cameras, I...

Takes wonderful pictures-a smart phone on steroids

5.0
Verdict: I bough it in the spring of 2018, when it was still a novelty... and paid FULL price then. No regrets as I took aver 4000 pictures since. Cons: new lenses, needs adapter to use EF lenses (pricey). Not an inexpensive camera. Pros: small, many options, excellent Auto Focus and Auto Exposure.

Canon EOS M50

5.0
Verdict: I like this camera for the light weight the fast auto focus and even the 4k which you can use with a wide angle lens to mitigate the crop factor. It does not feel as sturdy as my Nikon but then it's not as heavy either.

Brilliant Small Camera

4.0
Verdict: Brilliant Small Camera with most EOS SLR features and programs. I t can be hard to see the LCD screen sometimes, but after purchasing the EVF-DC2 Electronic Viewfinder Accessory, I am now really happy using this camera in very sunny conditions.

Cracking bit of kit!

5.0
Verdict: Even though it's described as an Entry-level mirrorless camera, it puts many higher priced alternatives to shame. Nice and easy to use, yet offers me plenty of control. The only minor complaints are that a rear dial would be a little more useful to me, and the limited maximum aperture of the zooms.
Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Cons: Inadequate Features

Compact easy to use mini 'SLR'

5.0
Verdict: The design of this camera makes it easy to hold and use,the grip on the right just fits my hand nicely.I've invested in the 18-150mm zoom lens and this is proving to be a cracker, recommended

So far, so good!

5.0
Verdict: I was looking for a reasonably priced 4k video camera that I could use for work. We do not have a large budget and we don't have staff with video expertise so the camera we chose had to be simple and easy to use but still produce nice quality video.
Pros: - light weight so easy to set up on a small tabletop tripod - reasonable wide angle capabilities (we shoot from about 5' or less) - good autofocus with good subject tracking - love the flip out screen (easy to see how your shot is composed) - the included microphone is great indoors (have not tried...
Cons: - recording on the included SD card seemed slow (we upgraded to a faster 64GB card) - battery life; the display shows full battery for quite some time and then the indicators quickly drop and the camera dies - SD card slot (it is difficult to insert the SD card and when you push the SD card, it does...

Excellent!!

5.0
Verdict: Delighted with my Canon M50. The picture quality is great and the 18-150mm lens gives me a lot of flexibility in the composition of my photos. The camera is really light and the fold out screen makes it easy to take photos from all angles.

Canon EOS M50

5.0
Verdict: To begin with I am new to cameras in general and have been doing a lot of research into the latest systems, like alot of people my budget was around ~£500 willing to stretch for the right camera, unfortunately this is not enough for any new full-frame system so had to settle on a crop sensor.

Canon EOS M50

4.0
Verdict: Having owned Canon products for a long time, and working in the field with heavy DSLR gear, it was time to make a switch to something a bit lighter and up-to-date spec wise. I've watched the Mirrorless category grow, and was torn between leaving my dear Canon behind in favor of the competition, but...

Canon EOS M50

1.0
Verdict: I'm not a camera pro. I needed to start shooting content for my business and did some research - took a shot on this one. Great decision. The amazing auto focus is a key feature for filming yourself because it follows you after you set it up to keep you in focus as you're moving around.
