When the Canon EOS M50 was first introduced in February it seemed fairly intriguing. So we went over to the Canon stand throughout The Images Present to test it out and have a little bit of a chat. The EOS M50 is primarily geared toward newcomers in search of a easy digital camera with highly effective options. Nevertheless it’s additionally preferrred as a second, smaller digital camera for these capturing Canon DSLRs.
The specs of the digital camera are very spectacular, and regardless of not being the highest mirrorless mannequin in Canon’s lineup, it accommodates some options and tech that the upper fashions don’t. However that is basically the primary of the following technology of Canon mirrorless. We will seemingly anticipate 4K, twin pixel autofocus and all the remainder of it coming to the opposite merchandise within the lineup as every is due for alternative.

Regardless that I’m not a Canon shooter, this digital camera was notably attention-grabbing to me as I’ve been taking a look at one thing new for vlogging. I believed that this could be the digital camera that might lastly make me put money into trendy Canon programs. The EOS M50 virtually ticks each single field for my very own wants. Nearly.
That 2.5x crop when capturing 4K video is the deal breaker for me. APS-C sensors already crop a bit of an excessive amount of as it’s. If you’re vlogging, with a 1.5x or 1.6x crop, you want a focal size of round 15mm to have the ability to get a good view when handholding your digital camera whereas speaking to it. With a 2.5x crop, you’d want nearer to an 8mm lens to get the identical area of view. If they’ll repair that in a future mirrorless launch, and nonetheless give us the microphone socket, flippy out LCD and 4K video, that digital camera would virtually definitely find yourself on my buying checklist if nothing else comes out within the meantime.
Other than that, although, it’s an amazing little digital camera to carry and use. It feels good and stable whereas nonetheless small and lightweight. The controls are all straightforward to entry and intuitive, and the picture & video high quality I noticed popping out of it in my transient time with it seemed fairly superb.
