The folks at Photography Blog reviewed the new Canon EOS M50, the company’s first consumer camera with 4K video.

From the conclusion:

Canon’s latest mirrorless camera is a curious beast, on the one hand offering several headline-grabbing features that promise to out-perform the company’s own flagship model, whilst on the other falling short of its full potential.

What could have been a vlogger’s dream ticket, for example, falls well short of the pre-release hype thanks to a crippled 4K mode. Canon made lots of noise about the camera’s 4K capability, but “forgot” to mention several important caveats that render it at best difficult to use, at worse almost impossible. As the first Canon mirrorless camera to offer 4K recording, the EOS M50 is simply a disappointment.

[…] In summary, the Canon EOS M50 is a surprising camera. It’s surprisingly capable for what is after all only a “mid-range” camera, but unfortunately it also surprisingly under-performs in a few key areas, which may make or break its potential appeal. Read the review…
