  • Replied in M5/M6/M50?
    I'd agree with this, mostly.  The whole feel of a camera has ot be right (not just specs), but in my case i moved from a 40D and wanted a small, light body with a EVF.  The flip screen is ace, as ...
  • Replied in M5/M6/M50?
    I know the M50 is marketed as 'entry level', but in practice what makes this the case? it doesnt have a dedicated exp switch or cf options on the dial, but otherwise i dont think there is anything ...
  • Thank you to everyone for your comments, suggestions and opinions - this is clearly a very well-regarded subject! I will re-evaluate what i can afford, and what i really need, and certainly take ...
  • Hi all. i have an M50, and i'm thoroughly enjoying the Canon 50mm 1.8, but with the crops sensor it does have a slightly too-narrow FoV.  I have a few zooms, but i really like the simplicity of ...
  • Replied in M50 AutoFocus
    I agree - you could always keep waiting for the 'next big thing'.  The M50 is a superb camera for the price, and the IQ and features  effectively bridges the gap between beginner and prosumer-type ...
  • Sorry to hijack the thread, but I have not heard of the Raynox. Any idea how that compares to a lens reverser set-up?
  • I use an M50 with the Canon M adaptor and the Canon 50mm 1.8 mkII. For shots of my kids it is outstanding at the price, with bright, shsllow image. I find that the 50mm at the 1.6 crop is a perfect ...
  • Created discussion thread Viewing CR3 in Windows 10
    Has anyone found a lightweight viewer alternative to Photo Pro to quickly look through CR3 on Windows 10, or maybe heard a rumour about when it may be supported natively?
  • i have always used the exposure lock > reframe > focus lock > reframe > shoot method. I guess what i need are two floating points in the frame to select focus and exposure lock separately, but the ...
  • i traded my M10 for the M50 and the difference is like night and day. I got the M10 for a song, so it only lost about £20 in the 18-months I had it, but it really proved the value of carrying a ...
  • Crikey, that's a lot fancier than mine - it's literally just a body cap with a tiny hole in the centre!
  • That did the trick, thank you. The photos look like they were taken through a bit of ruined perspex, but the whole excercise is still pretty cool. It's brilliant using the virtual exposure setting ...
  • Created discussion thread Pinhole EOS M50
    I have a pinhole body-cap that i made years ago to play with my 40D - at 50p, its probably the cheapest lens you can get? I tried it on the M50 and found it brilliant using the virtual expsure view ...
  • i would like to understand whether it is worth the risk of using CR3.  i have always shot raw, but i've been trying the new file type recently to save space as do tend to shift photos around a lot ...
  • Ah. Upvote for you, and downvote for Canon for being pointlessly awkward. if they charged reasonable money for a battery it wouldn't be so bad, but they are trying to gouge users.
  • +1 yes.  its a great beginer camera with all the features you might need to take it into more advanced territory.  e.g. it has various 'scene' modes that you wont get on a pro body, but it also ...
  • Wait, what?  i was aiming to get a Hahnel battery, since Wasabi are sold-out on Amazon UK and the alternaitves have a lower capacity than the Hahnel and are from dodgy-looking sellers (i really ...
  • The M50 lets you use the screen whilst its off (blank) to track the focus point, and so the digitiser is powered-up even if the viewing pixels are live.  it would be interesting if someone clever ...
  • Most definitly turnded off the continunous AF, although it took me a while to find that setting.  With a noisy lens, or anything with OIS that is a ridiculous option.  i set to to focus with a ...
  • i've only had it 2-weeks, but i've logged @600 shots on two full charges.  With the inital messing around and the usual conditioning the battery needs i expect to get around 400 shots with my ...
