MohsinWadee: Nice, but one must ask would you not have a Canon R10 for roughly the same price?

Or why this instead of a Fujifilm X-S10?

chris-m: "The R10 offers a solid spec that's competitive with its ~$1000 rivals..." This is fair -- it does have some selling points. But for me the bottom line is: Canon is asking $1000, body-only, for a 24mp APS-C camera with no IBIS and uncertain native (RF-S) lens support. As a (relatively) inexpensive backup for someone who already has a full-frame RF model . . . maybe. For a one-camera hobbyist who wants to go APS-C for portability and inexpensive reach, and who wants to shoot occasional family video, I have to think they'd be better served by something like a Fuji XS10 or even one of the more advanced m43 models.

I don't think any of the The G9, E-M5 III and E-M1 II cameras can match the overall capability of the R10 as a hybrid.

Gesture: Do comparison with Nikon Z50.

The non-articulating screen of the Z50 is a real bummer, has slightly lesser resolution, and its AF still frustrates. I think the R10 has the upper hand on it.

The XS10 is enticing - but the R10 has better AF smarts. Decent m43 cameras won't match the R10 at its price. Also, the RF-S 18-150mm seems a very decent kit lens.

MohsinWadee: Could this be the first real lapse from Fujifilm. It doesn’t seem compelling enough at the price, medium format or not.

Hmmm

thetoolman: It's truly a shame that despite the incredible sales and the deserved popularity of Canon's EOS M line, we still don't know if Canon will discontinue EOS M altogether. This silence on Canon's part speaks volumes of Canon's potential willingness to abandon a large consumer base who invested in EOS M cameras and lenses. If, in the end, Canon walks away from EOS M, one has to start to question whether Canon should ever be trusted again.

@DarnGoodPhotos, yes the M cameras may still be popular, but only until Canon inevitably launch an APS-C R line camera and then all hell breaks loose while still being relatively small and light. The M cameras don’t have great dynamic range, especially if beginning photographers want to then graduate to more capable equipment.

Rumours are strong that Canon will launch aps-c R cameras, if only to consolidate their lenses across the two formats like Nikon has done with their Z cameras.

Logically I see two scenarios playing out, but each with the goal of phasing out the M products:

1. Canon launches an R apsc camera with a spec higher than the M6 II, and priced slightly higher, but obviously below/on par with the ridiculously crippled Z5. The M products continue unchanged. They then produce cheaper R apsc cameras to drive new customers away from the M range,

2. Canon continues the M products, until popularity and sales of the M50/M6 decline. They then at least discontinue the cameras, and keep producing a reduced M lens range - by this time anybody who wanted more lenses would have bought them anyway. They keep providing firmware updates.

In conclusion, as a happy and previous M50 owner, I sadly don’t see the M products long for this world - Canon cannot afford 2 mirrorless lines - Nikon realized that.

Why don’t they state what lens was used for the 1080p footage? Maybe a better lens would have given sharper results?

In reply to:

Doug Shutterbug: I think what a lot of people want is a camera with a big sensor and the brains of a smartphone.

In other words, a camera that can apply intelligence to the current situation. For example, if the scene warrants, switch to HDR mode. Or, based on the scene - adjust the depth of field to ensure everything's in focus. If objects appear to be moving, raise the shutter speed. Sure there are times when I want to override things. But I'd like the camera to have a default mode that goes beyond "P" and analyzes a scene for content and applies the right settings.

My iPhone does this. Why doesn't my Nikon?

Thing is blow up any smartphone picture to a reasonable degree and they start look like crap.

MohsinWadee: It’s really surprising how many here have got really stupidly, banally defensive - bringing up that old chestnut and stereotype that if people want simplicity they should stick to smartphones - when not once has the author of this piece mentioned them. Not once has he mentioned a phone.

Sorry, most of the remarks here referencing smartphones are wilfully dumb.

But you also stupidly ignore the fact that both modern cameras and smartphones are actually computers.

What you also stupidly ignore is how ironically easy supposedly professional cameras like the Sony a1 will make an amateur take better shots than on Sony’s cheaper cameras - without much thinking!

Again, your comments are wilfully dumb.

Ah I missed that, but the crux of my comment still stands, And the Sony A1 has turned the entire argument on its head.

Why doesn’t your Nikon? Well the Sony a1 does - and it probably has the better electronic brain of any smartphone really.

What many, many get wrong here is that many people actually want a dedicated camera with better image quality but yes with less complication. The better everyone acknowledges this, the better off both consumers and camera companies will be.

For example Sony needs to trickle down the A1’s formidable tricks down to more affordable models. And there’s no shame in that.

Tom 13: Calling a $6,000 body a camera for the masses might be just a little bit of an over statement. Might be.

It’s not a camera for the masses fool. But compared to other medium format brands it’s a complete bargain. Even more so with the GFX 100.

If you’re a professional product photographer for a good company it will pay itself off in no time at all.

I think someone should think twice before spending 750 dollars on an entry level DSLR.
