      First off i will say i am not a Professional Photographer but i do Have Knowledge of Specs and i am using the M50 for Indoor shooting in Harsh Lighting that Tends to wash out my cell phone Quality. I recently purchased the Canon G7X Mark ii and in the Short Few Days i was able to use it i Liked it alot, but on the Day the Canon M50 Mirrorless Came out i went into my local Best buy to check it out,it was limited quantity and not on display i asked to see what it looked like and read up on all the specs i knew i wanted it, so i Exchanged my G7X for the M50,for the Extra money that i put toward the M50 i was able to get some Cool Features Software and Hardware Wise. I love the Fact that i have options now for Other Lenses, the stock Lense with IS works Great. Auto Focus with more Points is also a Plus. The Body of the Camera with out the Lense feels a bit plastic and i was concerned at first unboxing even compared to the way the G7X tough Build felt but as soon as i put the M50 Lense on it didn't matter as much and also helps in Making this Camera Compact and lightweight. In Hands the M50 Feels Very Comfortable in my Opinion. I know there are Complaints about th 4K Crop but i did not care and would much rather shoot in 1080p and have no use for 4K. I Purchased this Camera for Quality Photos and Ease of Transfering to Smartphone to Social Media and It does exactly that with the Canon Connect app and the new Auto Transfer Feature is Pretty cool. The Photo Quality is Crisp and Vibrant and some Great Features such as Background Blurring, built in Filters etc... One Great Hardware Feature is Having the Hi resolution EVF (ElectronicViewFinder) it's Beautiful and fluid to work with and an Awesome Feature for Bright days when the LCD can Give some Glare. I could go on about other cool Features but i will conclude with this, for the Price i know you can get a Full Size DSLR but if you're looking for Compactbuild,QualityPhotos,GreatVideos, interchangable Lenses, and all around Fun to Use Camera You won't Be disappointed i know im Definitely not and i made the Right choice.

      I bought this exclusively for Youtube videos. I originally shoot with a Nikon D850 and am very comfortable with DSLR's of the professional kind. I do want to mention that this camera has a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor which means it is a cropped sensor. The fact that this is mirror-less means it is amazing for videos. Mirror-less cameras are made to be smaller and lighter and generally better for video. The facts that the camera has Canon's amazing DPAF (Dual Pixel Auto-Focus), makes this great for focusing on faces blazing fast. This camera albeit small and compact, has some downfalls. My review is solely based on my experience with editing videos and pictures. I usually like to shoot 4K since I do a lot of nature shoots, I want to give this an honest review. First and foremost, it has a pretty great stabilizer for walking and filming. Shooting at 1080p 60 fps, you can get some nice smooth slow motion shots when edited in post. The lens that it comes with is a 15-45 mm which is not the best in my opinion for photography or videos, it is a great introductory camera for any beginner to enjoy and the ease of use makes it that much better. Now for the 4k video, it does have a crop factor and only shoots at 24 fps. 24 fps gives it a pretty nice cinematic look but the crop factor is what kind of ruins it. It has a 1.7x crop which means that you're gonna need a wide angle lens in order to get a bigger picture (Downside- This camera uses special lenses and there isn't a huge variety out there). The other downside is that at 4K, it loses the DPAF that I mentioned above. At 720p you can shoot up to 120fps which means SUPER SLOW MOTION... Which is awesome in my opinion. You do lose some resolution but anyone getting introduced into the DSLR world, this is the way to go. It isn't a 1DX Mark II, or a Sony Alpha 7R II, but you get what you pay for and get some great quality videos and pictures. I immediately took it off what I like to call "beginner mode" and start shooting in manual. But I perused beginner mode and it was very user friendly. I'd definitely look into this if you want to get into the awesome world of DSLR's. I know There's a lot of key points I missed but when I look at reviews what I mentioned above is what I mostly look for just to keep it short and sweet. I'm also not going to scrutinize it and compare it to a professional camera worth thousands of dollars. I knew what I was getting myself into so I'd definitely recommend this to a newcomer.

      Entry Level Mirrorless But With a Lot to Offer

      I was looking for a camera that was relatively small with lots of capabilities to fill the role of vacation camera, taking the place of my big full frame DSLR. This one met all of my needs. It's bigger than a lot of point and shoot cameras but not a lot bigger. The kit lens that comes with it, a 15 - 45 MM, is adequate, but I added a 22 MM F2.0 that really makes this camera shine. It fits neatly in a small Case Logic camera bag which tucks neatly into my back pack. Major pluses are the APS-C sensor (bigger than most point and shoots), the ability to shoot RAW, the excellent touch screen, the bright electronic view finder, the well organized menu and the ability to customize the camera's operation. I've been very happy with it. And I'm a Nikon guy!

      Good value for an entry-level mirrorless camera

      I purchased this as a gift mainly because of the $200 discount. With the discount, the Canon EOS M50 is a good value for those seeking an entry-level camera. Although it is not fully competitive with some more expensive mirrorless APS-C cameras, it is a capable, compact camera which produces very good results. It has many advanced features that can be used by more experienced photographers, but these are mostly embedded in the menus. Its primary weakness, given the mirrorless competition, is that it lacks in-body image stabilization and does not have as many lens choices as some other mirrorless manufacturers. Nevertheless, it is a very good entry-level camera. For the future, it would be good to see Canon and Nikon get more serious about mirrorless camera products. Overall, they seem to be lagging behind the competition in this market.

      Great camera

      I’m very new to photography and can’t be more pleased with this camera. I was choosing between this one and the Sony A6000 or A6500. Ultimately I liked the features and price point of this one. I have not been disappointed. The on-screen guides are very helpful for a beginner but do not really impede taking pictures. Some reviews said it felt cheaply made but I do not get that impression at all. I ended up getting this with the lens bundle and then also picking up another lens package that went with regular Canon cameras (along with an off-brand adapter). Overall I’m impressed with the great pictures it takes and the many features, all at a very nice price point for a beginner like me.

      This camera has all that I needed to capture photos and videos for instagram. I was using my iPhone 8. Now I can take really great photos and change lenses If I need to. I bought a gorilla pod and rode mic. Now I have a great setup if I ever wanted to do Youtube. All-in-all the camera for the price. A lot Cheaper than SONY A6500 and A7. Importantly it is Canon first 4k Camera. Just get a wider lens/adapter if you are worried about the 4k cropping.

      This camera is really really impressive. I own a Canon 5D mark III for my professional shots and work, and I bought the Canon EOS M50 for traveling and to take more artistic pictures. This camera is so good that I could even use it for my professional shots if I would need it to use it in case the other camera fails. Super sharp and clean images, light weight and easy to carry anywhere. The only "con" about this camera is when using it on ISO 800 or above, the images can get a little bit noisy. But besides that this camera is a killer!

      A lot of people hate this camera because they're trying to compare this with a $2,000+ camera. This is a great camera that takes good pictures and very good video recording. The 4k is kinda useless but I mainly do 1080 recording and it does great at that. I don't do professional video shots/pictures so this camera does great for normal great pics and vlogging with awesome quality. This camera would definitely get 5 stars if the 4k was not useless.
