PHOTO4LESS Canon M100 Final Thoughts

"Camera snobs."

It is getting plenty of use taking pictures of our new little one. The kit lenses in the bundle are more than adequate. The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. But white balance flips out often. Low light is extraordinarily good.

In August I sold my last DSLR and moved to the Canon 1279C021. Switching back and forth between photo and video is cumbersome. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. The second problem is the focusing controls. I can't recommend the Canon 1279C021 enough.

"Camera is EXCELLENT!"

The kit lenses in the bundle are more than adequate. So far performance is fabulous. I might be a dreamer though, probably won't ever see this. Canon mirrorless system has been advancing rapidly. The kit comes with so many things!

With clear, high-resolution 4K UHD 24p video, you can capture the incredible details and cinematic moments of your life at home or wherever your adventures take you.
  • IMPROVED DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF AND EYE DETECTION AF: The EOS M50 delivers improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast, accurate autofocus that helps you get the photo you want right as the moment happens. When used with the EF-M 15–45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, the autofocus area includes up to 99 AF points within an 80% x 80% range, and can be expanded up to 143 AF points to cover an image area of approx. 88% horizontal by 100% vertical when combined with select compatible lenses.

The EOS M50 camera can record in 4K UHD at 24 frames per second, which gives your videos a cinematic look similar to most movies and TV shows. To showcase your epic and special moments, a high-speed 120p mode is possible in HD.

Definitely best camera on the mirrorless market. Start up and shut down is quick. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. I've only touched in certain points there's so much more. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs.
