Canon’s EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera a Short Review

Capable, compact and connected, the versatile EOS M50 mirrorless camera is designed for today’s modern adventurers.

The EOS M50 is Canon’s entry-level mirrorless camera aimed at smartphone-upgraders and boasts some great features like a fully articulating vari-angle touchscreen, an electronic viewfinder, 24.1 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, silent shutter mode and of course its Canon’s first non-professional camera that lets you record in 4K.

I didn’t get to spend much time with the EOS M50 so this is my verdict from the time I had with it. While shooting in 4K was a bit of a letdown, if you’re looking to upgrade from a smartphone to a digital camera the EOS M50 is a no-brainer. Overall, the Canon EOS M50 is a capable, compact camera suitable for beginners wanting to take decent quality photos and record video in 1080p for use on social media or for vlogging.

I’m hoping to get to spend a little more time woth the EOS M50 in the future so I can do a more comprehensive review. Below are a just a few photos I took using the EOS M50.

I have no affiliation with Canon South Africa and this is a completely independent review.
The loan unit was returned to Canon after I had reviewed it.
