If you've been bitten by the photography bug and want to move up from your smartphone or basic compact camera, then the Canon EOS M50 is a great camera for your upgrade.
The EOS M50 might not be a flagship model in Canon's range of cameras, but this mirrorless model still offers superior performance for a mid-range camera at an affordable price. This makes it ideal for anyone wanting to get more serious about photography, but who doesn’t want to spend a bundle doing it.
The M50 is the first Canon camera featuring Sony's DIGIC 8 image processor. This makes the camera capable of shooting 4K movie footage, up to 24 fps. The M50 can also shoot 4K time-lapse footage, and you can pull stills from your footage, with files equivalent to 8MP.
There are all sorts of connectivity options in the M50 including Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy. Bluetooth Low Energy is particularly useful as it gives you a constant connection at low power, so you can maintain a link between the camera and the smart device you want to send your images to.
The new C-RAW option creates full-resolution raw files while saving about 30% to 40% on the size of standard raw files.
Video is a big part of any photography we do these days, and the M50 makes it nice and easy to capture great sound to go with that footage thanks to the inclusion of an external microphone socket
