But while Canon has been around for a long time, it hasn’t stopped innovating with its products. On February 26, 2018, Canon announced that it will be launching the Canon EOS M50, a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lens. It went on sale by March 23 of the same year.
Today, the EOS M50 is considered one of the best in the business and here’s why:
- Solid build with a good price
In a time where good pictures are a must, consumers are constantly looking for mirrorless cameras that do the job of a DSLR but are not as big and heavy. The Canon EOS M50 fits the bill just right with its compact build.
The camera only weighs 387 grams and has dimensions of 116.3mmx88.1mmx58.7mm. The Canon EOS M50 also boasts of an ergonomic design that’s perfect for taking excellent photos everywhere. It also comes at a good price point of $779.99 considering its features and the brand you’re investing in.
- Fully packed features that impress
For a camera that fits right in your hand, the Canon EOS M50 delivers big when it comes to features. It boasts of a Vari-Angle touchscreen, 4k video capabilities, 24.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor that will guarantee you crisp photos and videos every time and the DIGIC 8 processor that was introduced by Canon with this camera.
Its DSLR-sized sensor lets you shoot even under the toughest lighting conditions and its 4k video capability lets you produce high-resolution footage that’s four times better than full HD.
The camera also allows for continuous shooting at 10 frames per second And don’t forget that all those impressive features are packed in one handy camera that you can take anywhere you go without any hassles.
- Unparalleled connectivity for ease of sharing
Canon knows that consumers these days crave for convenience and connectivity, and the company made sure the Canon EOS M50 had all that. After shooting, images and videos can easily be transferred to your computer or smart devices using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or automatic image sync and transfer, so you can easily share them on your social media accounts. You can also backup your files to Irista for added security.
Although the Canon EOS M50 still has some downsides with its limited dynamic range, warm white balance and poor battery life, it is still one of the best options out there if you’re looking for a compact camera that can give you most of the capabilities of a DSLR but still light enough to take with you anywhere you go.
