  • Thanks for the replies. i noticed the comment that the M5 has more dials and switches so that more functions can be accessed without using the touchscreen. I was aware of this when I made the ...
  • “I am missing out on some killer features in the M5 that the M50 lls last?” Should have been. ”Am I missing out on some killer features in the M5 that the M50 has?”
  • Oops, that should have been “Am I missing...” not “I am missing...”. Your reply indicates nothing but improvements, correct?
  • Created discussion thread Was the M50 a good choice over the M5?
    My reasons for choosing the M50 were... 1. It was in stock:-). 2, It has the Digic 8 processor. 3. It has a more flexible screen. 4. It was less expensive. I am missing out on some killer features ...
  • Each to his/her own but I am just going to carry two spare batteries. A major attraction of the M50 was the smaller size and I wouldn’t want to give that up. Not meaning to flame, but it also looks ...
  • Created discussion thread M50 Favourie Custom Picture Styles
    I would be interested to see some examples of M50 users’ favourite custom pictures styles.
  • Replied in Update
    Thanks for the update. I have been playing about with it indoors, not in the field. It seems to connect reliably, but you do need to have Canon Connect running or at least in memory.
  • Great picture. When I saw it, I wondered whether or not it was taken from the east coast of Australia. I was out there myself last lat night (at 11:36 PM) taking a similar image with a 270 mm ...
  • Nice pictures, I just got my M50 with the kit lens (15 to 45 mm) and was wondering whether to get the 55 to 200 as tele/zoom lens or the 18 to 150 mm. Your photos put the 55 to 200 in a very ...
  • I agree, testing at home is one thing, using it on a day’s shot is quite another. If I find that I need to fiddle too much with the BT and GPS at each location, that will unacceptable. i am not ...
  • I am experimenting with switching the camera on at various times during the day to see what happens with GPS. Here are some points that I have noticed. 1. Canon Connect must be in memory. It ...
  • I think that this is where things get quite confusing. Geotagging of photos as you take them is done via Bluetooth, not WiFi. Also Bluetooth pairing is not done in the normal way. It is done via ...
  • Thanks
  • Can you tell me what ML means please. I can’t seem to guess what it stands for.
  • I too have done some more testing although I am yet to use the camera in the field, much less with GPS. My phone is Android, in use as my daily phone. Repeatedly, in recent tests the camera has ...
  • True, that is the other option but I thought that having the camera simply read the GPS data from the phone, as required, might be simpler and potentially drain the phone battery less. If you ...
  • I have the hot shoe GPS on for my 760D but I am pretty sure that the M50 won’t use it. We are clearly on the same page as to when updates occur and the reliability (or otherwise) of Bluetooth ...
  • Created discussion thread M50 Bluetooth/GPS Questions
    When getting GPS readings from a smart phone, is GPS data updated regularly or only when the camera is turned on? So far, my impression is the latter which I suppose is OK. I am thinking when on a ...
