The Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M in Asia) is an entry-level mirrorless camera that features an electronic viewfinder, fully articulating touchscreen, single control dial and a 24MP APS-C sensor – the same used by its M-series siblings. It has Canon's latest DIGIC 8 processor and offers expanded Dual Pixel AF coverage, 4K/24p video capture (with a 1.7x crop) as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.

Pros

Very good image quality from its 24MP APS-C sensor
Dual Pixel AF performs well, even at 7.4 fps and in low light
More AF points and larger phase-detect coverage area with select lenses
New C-Raw format cuts file size with minimal effect on image quality
First non-pro Canon to support 4K capture
Bluetooth makes pairing a smartphone easy
Fully articulating LCD with well-implemented touch interface
2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder
Useful auto transfer to phone or PC
External microphone input

Cons

Substantial crop in 4K makes wide-angle shooting nearly impossible
No Dual Pixel AF when recording 4K
4K video softer than peers; very obvious rolling shutter and 'jello'
Digital IS increases video crop even more with noticeable drop in quality
Poor battery life
Small buffer when shooting Raw bursts
Basic Auto ISO implementation
Video capture button is hard to find and easy to press accidentally
Eye detection limited to single AF
No USB charging
Limited native lens selection
