Review: Canon EOS M50 by TDP
« on: April 10, 2018, 12:02:39 PM »
Bryan over at The-Digital-Picture has completed his extensive review of the brand new Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera.

From The-Digital-Picture:

While a complete beginner can use this camera to simply capture very high quality images, the advanced user who takes the time to learn this camera’s more advanced features can have great control over their imagery. And, with Canon’s entire EOS system accessories behind it, the M50’s capabilities are practically unlimited.

Whether it is tucked into a pocket, in a camera case for backup purposes or used as an always-in-hand primary camera, the Canon EOS M50 can always be there for you with professional-grade image quality. Read the full review

The Canon EOS M50 looks to be a great option for an APS-C mirrorless camera from Canon, even if it didn’t hit the mark with a “real” 4K implementation.

I agree with Bryan. This is a really capable camera with surprisingly good image quality. I'm really enjoying using it as my "other camera" alongside the big ones.

Interesting - I've been more and more looking at Canon's crop mirrorless cameras with an EF-M to EF converter as an emergency backup to my 5D IV.  After a few near tragedies last summer, I can't help but think a small/light/cheap secondary body may not be a bad idea for some of my camping trips.  I shoot almost exclusively on tripod and really slowly, so I'm not too worried about the ergonomics/EVF performance, and I really don't want something bulky or heavy if I don't need it - I pack in way too much as it is!

Do competitors' EVF's also blackout during use?

I use a Sony a6500, along with my Mark IV Canon.  The big thing in favor of the Sony vs the Canon M is the in-body IS.  Digital when shooting movies doesn't cut it for me.  I love those cheap (but really good) Sigma lenses that don't have stabilization.

Sony A9 is blackout free.
Sony A6500 has minimal blackout comparable to OVF.

what lens(s) are you using with the a6500? Did you go native? I want an a6500 because it's a lot of bang for your buck (I'm a vlogger) but I love my Canon lenses. Note: af has to work for me, most important feature when shooting video.

TDP haven't reviewed the EF-M range so it's refreshing to see this one causing a stir.
The Spec looks good for the pricepoint which is a change for Canon. Pity the 6Dii wasn't priced appropriately

Yes, but the a6500 has a buffer that takes TWO MINUTES to clear.   Zzzzzzzzzzz...  No thanks!

Bobbo,
  The EF-M reviews aren’t shown on the main page menu, but they are there.  Click “review” twice and a new page comes up with the reviews listed.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

Are you referring to the 6d2's price at launch? Because 5 months after launch, during the Black Friday period, authorized USA sellers were pricing it at $1350, it is now $1379 gray market. At the 1300 mark, I think it represents a very good value.

is there any improvement in IQ between 80d, SL2 and M50. There is a jump from digic 6 to 8 between them.
70D, 10-18mm, 17-50mm F2.8, 85mm F1.8, 55-250 STM.

Probably the JPEG photo straight out of the camera, should be better with the DIGIC 8.
For RAW photos, it should not make a noticeable difference.
