An outstanding entry-level mirrorless from Canon in 2018


Canon EOS M50 Evaluate – I lastly get an opportunity to assessment the Canon EOS M50 because the final preview article I wrote in March.

With a lot of new cameras launched in 2018 by varied digicam producers, particularly within the mirrorless digicam line, little question that digicam shoppers and followers are trying ahead to Canon for a shock.

Canon EOS M50 is focused for newbies who’re involved in a smaller footprint digicam however nonetheless gives interchangeable lens, or to step up their pictures ability from snapping with smartphones.

What I like concerning the Canon EOS M50?

Canon EOS M50 at a look, the digicam measurement is certainly small. A fast comparability, the digicam is smaller than my Samsung Galaxy Word 2 and solely thicker because of the interchangeable lens which received’t be pocketable.

Holding Canon EOS M50 is snug, due to the digicam grip. I can really maintain the digicam for fairly a protracted time period. The included digicam strap can also be slimmer than the strap included from  most DSLRs and is a complement with the light-weight Canon EOS M50 (round 520 grams together with battery, 387 grams excluding the 15-45mm lens package). Total, the entire gear is basically snug to hold on my shoulder.

One other factor that I like is management. Canon EOS M50 permits me to customize eight customisable buttons on the digicam, although to be sincere, I nonetheless favor the button structure on the larger brother Canon EOS M5.

An ordinary digicam mode wheel to pick capturing modes will be discovered on the fitting hand aspect of the digicam, alongside with the digicam’s energy slider. Three customisable buttons are initially set as a devoted video document button, an ISO setting button (M-Fn button), and a shutter button which you’ll be able to customise throughout half-press alongside with a non-customisable wheel to regulate the publicity settings on semi automated mode (P, M, Av, Television).

On the again of the digicam, 5 extra customisable buttons initially set as an AF/MF button (to modify between autofocus or handbook focus mode), a trash can button to delete photographs, a flash button to show flash on/off, an publicity compensation adjustment, and an publicity lock button. These customisation choices are excellent from newbie photographers to the extra superior ones.

Canon EOS M50 comes with a built-in flash that’s helpful for that further fill mild when required.

Canon EOS M50 digital viewfinder or EVF is vivid and fairly sharp with 2.36 million dots OLED. I like viewfinders in mirrorless cameras as a result of the image you see within the viewfinder is what you get while you press that digicam shutter. The viewfinder can also be helpful each for capturing and reviewing photographs taken beneath a harsh, vivid sunny day. One thing that you could’t do usually in a DSLR.

I consider most of client will recognize to see that Canon EOS M50 comes with a vari-angle or a flip contact display that offers you final management to do varied functions akin to selfie, vlogging, and capturing on odd angles. Canon EOS M50 is the primary mirrorless digicam that options this flip display. That’s proper! The massive brothers: Canon EOS M5 and M6 are lacking out on the vari-angle touchscreen.

The subsequent huge promoting level of the Canon EOS M50 is that it’s the primary canon client digicam able to recording 4K and tremendous gradual movement movies at 720p. Nonetheless, 4K recording is just restricted to 24 frames per second. The digicam may also document in 1080p FullHD at 60 frames per second and 720p at as much as 120 frames per second. A Digital Picture Stabilizer (IS) function for smoother video recording whereas utilizing it handheld can also be current in Canon EOS M50.

Now, the nerdy stuff. Canon EOS M50 has a brand new DIGIC 8 picture processor which expands the quantity and space of Autofocus to as much as 143 autofocus factors. The newer processor additionally brings extra responsive digicam operation, tracks shifting topics higher and has new eye autofocus.

The picture sensor comes with 24.1 megapixel which is greater than sufficient for newbies. Most significantly, the picture taken has stunning color replica and pores and skin tones due to Canon’s color science. Low mild efficiency is a lot better in comparison with at this time’s smartphones too and to not point out the superior auto focus efficiency, due to Canon’s Twin Pixel expertise.

Canon introduces new CR3 RAW and Compressed RAW (C-RAW) file codecs which provide saving of as much as 30-40% file measurement. With C-RAW format, I can take extra footage in the identical SD card and get the pliability on RAW file for put up processing. These new file codecs are supported in latest Adobe merchandise however if you’re utilizing different photograph enhancing software program like Luminar, you’ll should double verify. Fortunately, the free Adobe DNG converter permits you to convert these RAW recordsdata to DNG which is extra photo-editing pleasant.

Being an entry stage digicam, what are the downsides?

4K recording is the massive function in Canon EOS M50, but it comes with limitations – for instance, the recording doesn’t learn information from the entire sensor. This implies you’ll get a special body when recording on 1080p vs 4K. I really wanted to reframe my shot for 4K recording due to this.

The obtainable body price for 4K is restricted to solely 24 frames per second and I’m additionally shedding the good thing about Twin Pixel expertise which is helpful for clean focus transitioning and monitoring. These are the issues you must take into accout when making a purchase order resolution, particularly if you’re planning to document movies in 4K.

Canon may purposely restrict 4K capabilities in Canon EOS M50 to keep away from overheating (which occurs on different digicam manufacturers) or just because it’s being bought as an entry stage digicam. The digicam additionally comes with half-hour video recording restrict.

Canon Digital IS or Mixture Picture Stabilisation (IS) shouldn’t be confused with In Physique Picture Stabilisation (IBIS) that has gained reputation from the opposite mirrorless digicam manufacturers. For my part, Canon’s Mixture IS crops the body to cut back the impact of picture shakes and works solely in video recording with the assistance of a suitable lens with built-in Picture Stabiliser. That is much less superior than IBIS which works throughout still-photo shoots and on lens with or with no built-in Picture Stabiliser.

EF-M lenses have been round for awhile, but it lacks of premium lenses picks. Fortunately, there’s a resolution to this, i.e with the mount adapter EF-EOS M that enables me to make use of my present EF and EF-S lenses on the Canon EOS M50. EF lenses are typically huge and straightforward to throw this digicam out of stability although.

Battery doesn’t final the entire day so be sure to make investments on some further batteries. There are alternatives to save lots of battery life at the price of EVF clean efficiency and LCD brightness.

Because of the compactness of the EOS M50 physique, the battery compartment is positioned too near the tripod mounting level. This causes a difficulty the place I can’t swap the battery or SD card out and in whereas the digicam is mounted on a tripod. It might trigger inconvenience to those that use a tripod lots.

Canon EOS M50 Review

With a price ticket of AU$949 at JB HI-FI, Canon EOS M50 comes with the physique and 15-45mm lens package, and is a sexy mirrorless digicam from Canon.

It has an excellent autofocus efficiency and larger picture sensor (higher in low mild) in comparison with Panasonic and Olympus with the identical worth vary. With a small physique measurement and light-weight, the EOS M50 is ideal for travellers or those that need to carry the digicam every day.

The digicam could be a pleasant present for the upcoming Father’s Day too (take a look at our this yr’s Father’s Day present information), particularly in case your dad already makes use of an older Canon digicam and has a couple of EF lenses mendacity round.
