  • I very much suspect it will work just fine. The M50 can AF with less light than many DSLRs and fairly sure it will AF at f/8. This is my old Sigma 100-300 f/4 zoom with a 1.4 teleconverter, just a ...
  • This wasn't true with optical viewfinder, as the viewfinder view was always with lens wide open and the DOF preview would stop it down to the specified aperture and if a small one it would indeed ...
  • With modern digital cameras I think the real answer to that question is to just shoot a test shot and look at it. Can be done in the time you can analyze a dark depth of field preview look. ...
  • I would say several of your lenses would still be of great use on the M50 - the 24, 50 and especially 55-250, plus a flash if you have it. I went from 7D to M50 recently and have been very happy, ...
  • If on a tripod one partial solution is to bump the exposure compensation (say up or down 0.5 or 1,5 stops) and take 3 more.
  • As the lead article here a few days ago indicated, computational photography on mobile phones is increasingly impressive. This has certainly displaced most small sensor compact cameras. I am ...
  • Yes, the most expensive adapter for free is a safe bet. May not be an option however depending on camera bought and where it is purchased (for example M50 and M5 now have Canon adapter for $49 ...
  • No the third party app Camera Connect and Control didn't work for me. Cascable is iOS only
  • Not tried Cascable as 1) I have zero need myself for the actual RAW files on my phone, as opposed to the jpg previews which are great and let me shoot RAW only which I prefer. Was trying RAW ...
  • The answer is no for actual RAW over WiFi from M50 via the Canon app (but it will transfer the embedded jpg from the RAW if shooting RAW only, which is handy). Also can't do RAW direct to Canon ...
  • Tried it on M50, couldn't get it to see the camera. Virtually zero instructions. Happy to retry if anyone has tips.
  • I will check later with my camera and Android phone. I know for sure that you can transfer the surprisingly large jpg embedded image from the RAW to the phone. For casual sharing to social media ...
  • I'm an M50 buyer. Previous 30D, then a 7D, but didn't use much because of size. A good assortment of non-L glass mostly bought used (15-85, 10-22, 50 1.8 II, 85 1.8, 100mm macro 2.8,Sigma 50-150 ...
  • I have a Vello (from BH). Seems to work fine. Indoors in low light is a little slower to lock than the native lenses, in anything like decent light it seems fine. Was like 60 US$. Haven't tried ...
  • For a number of lenses the EF or EF-S version even with an adapter are still pretty comparable in size (and often a lot cheaper than Sony/Fuji versions). Here's the 50mm 1.8 STM on M50 vs Sony ...
  • I think you may have missed the point that the Wasabi charger referenced above is USB powered. So can go power-bank to charger. WIth 3 batteries (original plus the 2 Wasabi's) you would also need ...
  • Seems complex unless have other uses. A USB + AC charger and a couple of spare batteries (Wasabi charger plus 2 batteries are circa 20-25 bucks on Amazon). Canadian trains do tend to have AC outlets.
  • Try taking it to a store w a Redux machine.. Uses vacuum plus low heat to remove all water. Know in an hour if works. I did this for a cell phone that spent 18 hrs under cold running water and it ...
  • Using the M50 on vacation in Bermuda now. Basically using one battery per day, which isn't fantastic (probably circa 100 shots per day, but a fair bit of review, wireless transfer etc). I think an ...
  • I think Servo AF with Zone is likely to be the best mode for most moving subjects, nice explanation here https://snapshot.canon-asia.com/article/en/guide-to-new-features-of-the-eos-m5-3-smooth-zone-af
