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

 

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 new EOS M50 mirrorless camera offers 4K video capture, expanded Dual Pixel AF coverage and improved connectivity. We've taken a closer look at these features and more in our in-depth review.

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...

Canon EOS M50

 

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...

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

Canon EOS M50 Review

 

What started as a single model has now filled out into an entire line of MILCs (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras). Canon has been adding to their EOS M lineup and the M50 is now a very attractive addition to that camera series. Though positioned...

Canon EOS M50 review: Save up to £200 at Amazon today only

 

Canon's latest entry-level mirrorless model offers plenty for those looking for a small and well-specified camera

Easy to use ; Fast in operation ; Strong set of features

Relatively poor battery life ; Kit lens is susceptible to flare

This is a neat little offering from Canon that will suit novices looking for a small, well-specified camera at an affordable price. It faces stiff competition from Sony and Fuji in particular, but offers enough to make it worthy of being on the...

Canon M50 mirrorless plays catch-up with 4K and improved AF

 

The updated many-point autofocus system, 4K video support and more will be welcomed by Canon mirrorless fans.
