Canon EOS M50 Review
Most will be surprised, but Canon presented its first mirrorless camera of the EOS family back in 2012. It was then that this prefix M appeared in the name of the ruler, which stands for mirrorless, which is translated from English as mirrorless. Since then, the line of mirrorless at Canon has expanded significantly. I got a Canon EOS M50 in my hands. And its appearance in 2018 is remarkable by the fact that it is the first Canon mirrorless camera that can shoot 4K video. The community of professionals was immediately dubbed the M50 the best camera for blogs. I am far from this, but I liked the camera and I would buy it.

Stabilization and swivel display
Yes, the desire to stabilize the image during shooting is not only for the manufacturers of smartphones. The giants of the photo and video industries do this, too, and emphasize no less attention on this. And Canon stands alone in this matter because it uses a stabilizer in its lenses. The remaining manufacturers equip cameras matrix stabilizer. And in the whale lens for the Canon EOS M50, there is a stabilizer and it is very helpful when shooting with hands, at a slow shutter speed or in low light.
Lens and sensor
Generally, Canon has a small line of mirrorless lenses. There are only 8 of them, including the whale EF-M 15-45 mm with an aperture of f / 3.5-6.3. And this is a very good zoom. It is truly universal. Need a wide-angle photo – please. It is necessary to show the depth – also easily. It is necessary at night and evening to shoot – shoot. He will do fine. The only thing that creates a little discomfort is a special latch that opens the lens. And of course, Canon made an adapter for EF and EF-S optics. It is sold separately.
And also 24.1 megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor is responsible for the good quality of images. It is commonly used by Canon in their SLR cameras. In size, it is 30% more mirrorless mirror sensors from Olympus and Panasonic, which use the Micro Four Thirds standard. Well, the larger the sensor size, the more light it can catch. From here and so good quality of pictures on Canon EOS M50 in the night and an evening.
No matter how good the photos are, this camera is taken, but it is primarily looked at as a tool for shooting video. And this is not casual. This is Canon’s first mirrorless camera that can shoot in 4K format. For people who are passionate about video, having a recording in such a compact 4K package is a big plus. However, there is a footnote. At 4K, Dual Pixel AF does not work, which limits filming scenarios. You have to be content with static scenes with manual focus adjustment. Shooting vlogs in 4K will be problematic. But in Full HD and even at 50 frames per second Dual Pixel AF works fine.
There is a pretty good microphone for shooting video. You can basically do it. But Canon apparently decided to completely appease the Vlogger community and added a 3.5 mm input for an external microphone. A tripod, an external microphone, a wide-angle lens, an expanded display, and the M50 turns into an ultimate set for the vlogger. Therefore, it is now called the best for video filming himself.
