    The EOS M50 Rocks!

    It's not the spec king of mirrorless cameras but the canon eos m50 just works! The auto focus, canon colors, canon menus, and just the overall ease of use makes this camera perfect for me and my passion projects.

    Here is a link to some shots I grabbed with the camera while my students were filming their short film. Forgive me for the bad sound. The students recorded sound separately but not while I was filming. The sound is decent. Overall this was just a test to see how would this camera would look under cinematic lighting.

    I got this camera for vlogging mainly but after seeing what it was able to produce with good lighting I'm definitely going to be using it for my short films.


    Here is the link to the camera test:

    Did you shoot this in 4K?

    Colors and latitude look good, image sharpness is good (as best as can be judged after YT compression), but there’s a striking amount of jell-o in there. Just, lots of microjitter.
    Nobody notices audio... until it's not there.

    It's the rolling shutter and it will go down as one of the worst in history along with the a6300 (both in 4K).

    I played around with it at Best Buy the other day and although I'm not too crazy about it (and I love Canon DSLRs), you can't really complain for the price. For 4K interviews on sticks in a lit environment, it will do great.

    Thanks for your comment Alex!

    The only shot in 4k is at :31 seconds. The whole thing was shot in 1080p 24p, minus the shot where the guy gets choked which was shot at 1080 60p.

    I did everything handheld holding it with a little joby tripod so yes there was definitely some jitter in there. If this was a real shoot where I was hired as a DP I would have definitely had a better rig for the shots, but this was just a spur of the moment thing where I decided to test out this little monster on a student film set lol.

    so as a 1080p camera, it strikes me as a mini canon 80d.

    be well.

    Thanks for the comment robfilms!

    The settings I used were auto profile picture setting, shutter speed 1/50, F-stop 1.4( 1 lens used: canon 50mm 1.4 lens), ISO I believe was 400, and most of it was shot at 1080p 24p.

    At :31 secs was 4k 24p, and the shot where the husband gets choked was shot at 1080 60p.

    The rolling shutter at 4k is very bad yes. At 1080p it's not great but it's really not that bad.

    And your'e right. It's a really awesome camera for the price.

    Thanks for sharing the sample. It looks a lot better than I thought it would. I'm curious about this camera for gimbal work. How's the moire situation? Does Canon finally have it under control?

    Regarding the DPAF, are you able to control the speed of the focus transitions like you can with the 80D? And how smooth/responsive are the transitions when adapting an EF-S lens to the EF-M mount? Do you lose anything?
