@Ebrahim Saadawi"About 10 of these listed APS-C Sony lenses are the same 18-something zoom. As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. Order it now. What I expect the reviewer is trying to say is that the zoom range, limited as it is, won't lend itself well to scenes where the photographer would want a wider angle of view than the 11mm widest angle will permit. The funny thing is, like it or not, it's going to happen just give Canon sometime we just don't know when it's going to happen. But there are cameras that combine the sensor and the AF. Free shipping. We're glad you asked. Stick a 35 or a 50 on it and you're on your way to portrait city. I have the original M kit camera so I already own the 15-45mm and the 22mm lenses as well as the EF adapter for M cameras. (EOS-M) compactness = Uber 2.54x crop = rubbish video quality, "We speculate that the soft 4K and drop in quality when using digital IS is due to the camera sampling a smaller area of the sensor and then scaling it back up. How is it different from the M1? Aiming to save photographers carrying a cable and a charger for every battery they use, this device handles up to four batteries at the same time and can charge at home, in the car and via a USB power bank. Your sensor is not covered by a mirror because it is a mirrorless camera. This camera is over two years late to the party and does not meet the quality or features of other cameras in this category. Let me correct this for you Franz - Chuck Norris shoots 4k 60fps videos without a camera. You can do portraits with the m50, but that doesn't make it well-suited for that. You didn't offer a rebuttal. It has to be zero. Sony has the best image quality compare to all of the cameras you mentioned? The NEX-7 and X-Pro1 would definitely have more DR than the M50. I am using the nikon D600 at mo with 28mm AIS f2.8, phenomenal results on a tripod, but useless for my workflow handheld. A6000 = more DR and better high ISO. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. Sad that Canon knows how to make a nice DSLR camera body but their mirrorless is a dealbreaker. Chris and Jordan from DPReview TV also shot a gallery with the lens, but on Panasonic bodies. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. What do they know?! I dont do much video , has couple of old Canon Lens , M50 works for me. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? One that Nikon and Sony are only starting to catch up to (shooting video makes you evaluate LV extensively) and it's only the contrast-detection AF system that's slow. Unfortunately the only exposure controls you get are 'brightness' in the Quick menu; no aperture or shutter speed control. Having debuted just about a month ago, the Canon EOS M50 has made its way into our office where we put it straight to work. I'm not talking about using other lenses but for the canon to keep development on their lenses. The EOS R mirrorless full frame system comes complete with a range of RF lenses. The M50 is the first Canon to use the new CR3 Raw format, which has an updated compression option called C-Raw (compressed full resolution, rather than the downsized 'Small' and 'Medium' Raw formats). Depending on which system you're in and what your needs are, they might just be the compact, well-priced and impressively sharp little primes you've been looking for. Doesn't mean you can't take any, but it's not the best tool for the job. What MOD did he use to get 4K 60fps out of the old Canon 20D? It's a Canon sensor. All of it lacks weather sealing, it would be an addition to make an adapter that has a built in Graduated ND filter or a focal reducer for the EF(full frame lens) to get better light information and correct cropping. Or press AF-on whilst in 10x punch in view. If this was your first or second real camera you'd be amazed at the control. Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. No it doesn't. Among my lenses is a 7-14mm and a 14-140mm, giving a range equiv. This....is odd. All scores are only comparable to the cameras made in that year.You can't predict what the heck is coming in the FUTURE. And thats a terrible way to use the term telephoto, whether intended or not. I have more faith in Nikon releasing a worthwhile mirrorless. Just like the M5, the M50 sports a DSLR-like design, albeit one that's been shrunk in the wash. You cannot bounce it, but still this little camera is coming my number one for travel, not bringing my big gear anymore. But it's all the same. So by the time Canon catches up with today's cameras, Canon will be 4+ years behind the competition. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. I think you misunderstood the 1.7x crop as being off FF, no it's a 1.7x crop of APS-C (which is 1.6x crop to begin with). It's hard to do freaking still Portraits with a 1DX/7DII 65 AF point system or Nikon's D500/D5 150+ point 3D-matrix system? Sony and FujiFilm make great looking and full featured mirrorless cameras. :)thanks regards. Your 6D was just as good (bad) as your m1 if you'd shot in LV for portraits. And it will likely appeal to the same crowd: beginners and/or those stepping up from a smartphone as their primary photography device. Own it. Just like with a still image, you can't make something from nothing, so video quality drops. Canon has also announced the new EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Digital Camera, which is an upgrade of the EOS M50 featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF improvements aimed at … oh didn't think touch would be that huge of a differentiator for a DSLR user. Offering novice users a choice between a DSLR and a mirrorless camera, it brings together a wealth of new features and a specification not normally seen in this small form factor. PAntunes, Edward...calling 6D camera that can not take portraits photos is ridiculous statement.I have never ever hear or read that was an issue....ever. Sony's way due for a cheap WA, high IQ kit lens and high IQ tele, while Canon's way due for some faster primes. 'What's the best mirrorless camera?' Learn about the different types of EF, EF-S, EF-M and RF lenses and find out which will work best for you and your camera. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. No, actually, it's quite a bit better than the M5, M6, and the 80D also for that matter. 'There are several other use cases that we consider when reviewing a camera. You can put some lenses, but doesn't have many choices without an adapter. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. The compact and easy-to-use EOS M50 camera helps you capture the stunning world around you in vibrant, high-resolution images and impactful 4K UHD videos. I'm looking forward to get the Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens for my M50 because it gives a more wider image. and quite a number of features too. M50 as per Canon's site, has silent shooting mode. The Canon EOS M50, is a no brainer. Ik shooting with it bod and in my subjective opinion it is a winner! Great detail at base ISO.But I never use base ISO. EOS M and EOS R Full Frame mirrorless ranges deliver the power of DSLR in the body of a compact camera. Cut the crap! I don't see how you can equate the two, because I think one would have to be crazy to use live view for portraits with older canons with no touch screen. There's still hybrid stills/video shooters out there who are in the market for a new camera. There's only so much you can do with that. If beating every one else in mirrorless was in sales then Sony has not beat any one. sorry for my unclear question ...:)..I meant while it is out and on ,can it be pulled back or retracted to bounce the flash from the ceiling /roof..? Nothing compelling with this camera at all to me. Thousands of photos on one charge with cheap 10fps mechanical shutter DSLRs that have a DPAF mirrorless mode AF (that you love) is a solution simply not offered by ML. Still need lenses that canon made specifically for this. Purely shoot stills. Not even possible to focus on a blackbird that is a few meters away. It's like they didn't even try. I realize looks aren't the #1 reason people buy cameras, but Canon's mirrorless cams look like they just didn't know what to do to make a mirrorless camera and they come out with this crap. Hmm. Nothing that moves. I personally don't think that saying is enough to justify the statement for this camera. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! Has eye-af but not in AFC. Looks a good camera but a poor native lens range,the only telephoto is slow and gets poor reviews,wide angle also slow.

They NAIL portraiture even with 1.2/1.4 glass. Limited lens choice? Just good quality 1080p. It's all just suggestions on how it could be better, I never said it was bad for what they already have. But before you get too excited about that latter bit, it's worth noting that 4K comes with a heavy 1.7x crop, and Dual Pixel AF is not available in 4K (contrast detection AF is available). wow the GH3 still beats it in 1080 video quality what were canon thinking, maybe its an adapter thing, still a decent holiday camera to carry around, although I would pick Sony over this they have everyone else beaten in the mirrorless market especially given theres enough adapters out there to use canon glass etc etc (and the new Sigma art range should be very nice). Too bad.Funny how they never made this camera just for you. The AF is still limited in LV, the AF coverage is small in OVF, they are bigger and heavier and the battery performance in LV is really bad. Thankfully, Canon for its part is past the point where they will purposely make a terrible Af system just to protect 5d sales. A DSLR with limited focus points all in the center is not the best tool for the job when you have cameras that can detect and focus on an eye up to the corner of the frame. With the ef-m adapter the possibilities are endless. Best 1080P footage I've ever seen from Canon. Is M50 1080P video quality lower than M6? Tell unforgettable stories in rich colour and detail with the compact and connected 4K EOS M50. DMC-GX8 offers 4K footage recording at 30p or 24p at bit rates up to 100Mbps, checked, by dpreview. Today, at its Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm revealed the details of its new Snapdragon 888 system on a chip (SoC) that, amongst performance and battery improvements, offers an array of impressive photographer features, should Android smartphone manufacturers choose to make the most of them. I like the photo with the van a lot! I think the take home of the RP is that it is the same as the 6DII in terms of sensor (IQ, low light, DR etc). @srados, there is a big difference between not being able and not being well suited. This allowed the EOS M50 to be the first mirrorless Canon camera that could shoot 4K video (up to 24fps), including the ability to take 4K timelapse footage and … The Canon M50 is an ARRGGGG camera. All my Canon DSLRs do (AF, track, detect & select faces, sensor-wide coverage, etc). In reality, it's barely competitive against the original 6D from half a decade ago. If you calculate the focal length equivalent, don't you want to know the aperture-size equivalent too? ;), I am a beginner and looking for a mirrorless camera which provides outstanding image quality. Will this camera be a better option for me? Whether making poster-sized prints, zooming in on a particular detail or making beautiful 4K videos, the EOS M50 's sensor is up to the task. WELLthat is a tough question, the sony will give you better quality for resolution m[24 vs 16mp] & at higher isos the sony will look cleaner noise wise the sony kit lens starts wider [24 equiv vs 28] but not as long [75 equiv vs 84]the sony ships with a pancake and the iq is soso it is said.i own the olympus 14 42 a good kit lens i think the a6000 is good but the few times ive used it it seemed a little too plastic. Many thanks.There's nothing like an informed comment and that was nothing like an informed comment. Add in the eye focus assist (regardless if it is not as advanced as sony), and you have all the tools you need for portraiture. At the time, they promised the brand's main strategic focus going forward would be connectivity and video. need not mention pro-level GH5/S. Well, it's simple.. Because today's technology has evolved, so those cameras are not well suited in today's market. They do present difficulties but I think more so for folks like us who are used to toting around big SLR's. Inside Canon's new EOS M50 lies a new Raw format dubbed CR3, and with it, an option to record compact C-Raw files that are 30-40% smaller than their losslessly compressed CR2 equivalents. We can always find a way to nitpick it to death. To each his own. Sigma has introduced its new 'I series' of compact, premium full-frame lenses for E and L mounts. Funny, I owned a Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless, I then rented a Nikon D610 and wound up just buying a Canon 1DS Mark 3, and couldn't be happier! However, personally I find that canon no longer has a good excuse to use sensors with the DR of the 6DII/6D bodies especially since all other bodies have on-board ADC. I do it manually too. So, like Mailman.. said, I too doesn't bother base ISO DR / noise performance as it's of no relevance to what I do practically. 4K would just eat up more storage space. Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. Nails it, I can even zoom in 10x on the fly to make sure the exact spot i want is in focus. So it PHYSICALLY limits how I can compose my images. Sent camera today for service. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. It's completely manual. same question ....surely there are times and exposure situations where iso 200 with its 2 stop advantage over iso 800 can be used ? And it seems like Canon should now be in a position to start competing image quality with modern XT2s Sony A6xxx series, but it's still behind the Xpro1 in image quality. Ebrahim Saadawi now you can get the same quality image but on fast af cameras with extra features that help get the perfect portrait. Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. I'm not really into Vlogging so a decent video quality (1080p) is enough for me. Mirrorless cameras already have thousands of photos on one charge. Deaf. I've bought this camera from December 2018 and I have been using it since then, I'm satisfied with the camera despite it's price, size, weight & performance. In someways this little camera is an upgrade but I will wait for the real thing. We didn't find the M50 to be well-suited as a camera for weddings & events, sports & wildlife, action & adventure or portraiture.'. With the new Pro Display XDR Calibrator and accompanying firmware update, users can now recalibrate their Pro Display XDR monitors. Hundreds of very positive professional bloggers. We compare the Canon EOS R6, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5 and Sony a7 III. Maybe next iteration will be the one. Must be all stupid olde skool grey haired sad Canon shooters. No need to point who these are. Let's find out. Find the best Canon camera system for your shooting style with this detailed review video from Canon Photographer Jenn Cooper. Bab. I also like Sony A6500 but cannot pay 1.5K. So its lame to insult our intelligence, some of us are actually experienced with this gear they speaketh of. ”Even with all IS off, the 1.7x crop factor suggests the M50 is only reading 3530 pixels across for 4K video, which explains the softness of the 4K footage to begin with.”. I recall in the M5 review there was a lag noted if the shutter wasn't pressed halfway first, making quick grab candids difficult. Wonderful colors straight out of the camera and no sensor artifacts to process over. from the past 10 years have been struggling with DSLRs AF. And with certain lenses (18-150mm, 28mm macro and 55-200mm) that coverage increases to 88% x 100% with 143 points. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing under $1000 and recommended the best. Try what I do with a DSLR. You can't just convert focal length if you want to compare other characteristics beyond field-of-view.The f-number is largely irrelevant in cameras that can change sensitivity on the fly (without having to exchange film rolls). I am in no hurry. Furthermore, saying that a camera "does it's job" for its intended audience and that the brand has basically always been inferior isn't really a rousing defence. Otherwise, Canon reports it's basically the same camera, including the same sensor and processor. Hi Diane, Thanks for the reply, I have looked at ththe m50 again, and it was a contender until I saw the RP, its great to get an end users input on it as a camera, so its probably the one actually, as it looks like my full frame dream is in tatters. But fair enough of course. only iso 800 or more ..................................why? Produce incredible high-resolution, cinematic video footage with a unique look and feel. So they came out with a bizarro camera like the M50. So yeah, not really well suited for portraits. I am wondering if the $2500 Canon EOS R has the same limitation? Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm Lens (Black) The EOS M50 is a compact interchangeable lens camera for aspiring photographers looking for an easy way to boost the quality of their photos and videos. Indeed. Two years ago. Canon has always been behind in tech, even back in the Minolta days, yet Sony/Minolta still have not grown in ILC marketshare in the last 10 years. While the sales figures after a few months for this camera are skyhigh.
