Why is my canon m50 never able to take good pictures indoors

My suggestion is to get an EL 100 flash

I take lots of photos of our dogs, and have used several different lenses and existing light/flash options. I have found that I don't really need a fast shutter speed. 1/60 of a second is usually enough with flash. I always bounce the flash, since direct flash (to me) never looks good. The dogs don't seem to mind the bounced flash.

I am not knowledgeable about the M50's high ISO performance, but my RP can shoot up to ISO 12800 (with a fast prime) and shoot excellent photos.

Here is one I shot of my Japanese Chin and French Bulldog, with bounce flash and another shot at ISO 12800 of the French Bulldog with no flash (and a RF 35mm f2.0 IS macro).

Oh, also included are two photos of one of our other dogs and the pictures are blurry. They are two of my favorite photos of him, though.

Try the EL-100 flash, bounce it, I bet you will be happy with the results.

With bounced flash, EL 100, and inexpensive EF-S zoom lens.

French Bulldog, existing light, ISO 12800

Nose is sharp, anyway.

Blurry Dragonfly!
