Product Overview

Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M) is an affordable mirrorless camera in the Canon EF-M-mount system. Introduced by Canon in 2018, it comes with an APS-C sensor with 24 MP (6000 x 4000) resolution and a 2.36 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. The 10.0 fps burst rate serves enthusiasts well enough, though some professionals may find it limiting.
The EOS M50 comes with a fully articulated touch display and 143 autofocus points.

Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Canon EOS M50 is an upper entry-level mirrorless camera. It has a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, confident autofocus (for stills and 1080p video), small but crisp OLED viewfinder, excellent wireless. It also becomes Canon's first mirrorless with 4k video, a fully-articulated touch-screen, eye detection and silent shooting options. Sadly the 4k is of limited use, employing a severe crop and only working with less confident contrast-based Autofocus. I'm also frustrated there's no USB charging, especially since the battery is fairly weak.

Pros
  • Excellent autofocus
  • Solid build quality
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • Limited 4k video
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Canon M50 is a good choice for landscape photography. It has a responsive autofocus system that tracks subjects reliably. Video quality in 4k and FHD is sub-par, especially in less well-lit environments. Its plastic construction doesn't feel especially rugged and isn't weather-sealed.

Pros
  • Fully articulated screen
  • Wide selection of inputs and outputs for videography accessories
  • Decent autofocus performance
  • Good overall image quality
  • Low price
Cons
  • Short battery life
  • Short maximum zoom
  • Sub-par video stabilization performance in 4k and FHD

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Canon EOS M50 is a popular mid-range mirrorless camera. It has a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS affair, with a sensitivity range that runs from ISO100-25,600. Unlike Canon's mirrorless EOS R series, which have full-frame sensors, the Eos M50 has a smallerAPS-C sensor. The M50 was also the first Canon camera – DSLR, compact or mirrorless – to feature the DIGIC 8 image processor.

Pros
  • Compact, compact design
  • 4K video
  • Built-in viewfinder
Cons
  • 1.6x crop for 4K video

All Canon EF-S, EF, TS-E and MP-E lenses can be mounted on any of the M models. EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens pancake-style lens shown mounted below. Canon repair service, though I seldom need it, is very fast and reliable.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • High-grade EVF
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No EVF
