On article Canon EOS M50: What you need to know (431 comments in total)

I would like to see a prosumer APS-C DSLR camera with IBIS and good low light perforamnce with EF-S mount. I do not need video capabilities at all. Just a fast burst speed of at least 8 frames/second and large buffer to hold at least 30 full sized RAW files. Also, ML firmware should run on the camera, it has many very useful still photography features.

Interesting! Not only the article, but also the discussion below is very informative. Thanks for sharing, I did not know about that research.

Thanks for the article, it was very interesting and thought provoking.

dopravopat: Phone app? Not for me, thank you. What for???

Remote control or cable releas? No, ML firmware and you can set whatever time you want.

Card reader? Again, why? To get a mess in filenames? I prefer to download from camera and let them name YYYY_MM_DD_####.

The straps that come with cameras are good enough. If you need something better, get one, but it is not what you need.

A microphone? Well, if you are into movies, maybe. I use my cameras to take stills. Movies are, at least in the case of the EOS 60D, not really good. Artifacts, low resolution, rolling shutter, non existing AF. And mostly - why? I do not want to spend five times as much editing videos compared to stills.

What I miss is a lens hood, as most lenses come without hoods. Also a polarizer might be useful.

I attach the polarizer first, then the hood. I can turn the polarizer independently of the hood when needed.

"Real photographers don't need Photoshop."

Sorry but this is wrong. I do not use Photoshop to add smoke to enhance battle photos or do to any retouching. I just want full control over the exposure (I shoot RAW and use ACR), do some decent cropping to get a better composition, which cannot be always achieved when the subject is moving relative to the background. Photoshop is a very useful tool if you know how to use it and do not overdo it.

Out of camera jpg files are fine if you are satisfied with them. Instant sharing is nothing for me, taking a latent image is just the first step in photography. The second is to develop it. This applies wery well to the digital world. I upload and share pictures too, but a few hours later, or a few weeks later (like from the holiday, when I sort and process only the best ones). I am not sharing thousands of pictures.

Checked the site and the pictures. Some looked bad both "before" and "after". And tragically, the "before" picture looked in some cases better than the "after" picture.

I have very good experience with Fomapan 200 and Fomadol R09 Developer. Technical specs: http://www.foma.cz/en/fomapan-200
Also, a bunch of 10 rolls, each 36 frames, is less than 30 €, making it less than 3 € per roll (link: https://fomaobchod.cz/cernobilenegativnifilmy/perfofilmy/fomapanset-perfo/fomapan200135-36-set10kszacenu9ks%5B11012%5D?ItemIdx=3).
But I shoot digital nowdays. Maybe one day I will grab my old Praktica and shoot some negative film again...

sop51: I don't see a cat on the list.

The cat upgrade can be picked up for free in your local animal shelter. Most photographers already have a cat and the cat is the reasony why they buy the camera in the first place.

dopravopat: Slow, crappy lenses on a "premium" EOS M5. When will Canon offer something like the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 or 50-100 f1.8? Oh wait, they will charge abnormal prices for them anyway, why bother?

Tonkotsu Ramen:
Sigma is no longer an outsider, low quality 3rd party lens maker, but a top of the line manufacturer. What Canon should do is open the EOS M mount for everybody, give detailed specs of it and the communication protocols.

mosc:
I hope somebody will test how the two Sigmas I mentioned perform with the adapter on the EOS M5, as this is something I am really interested in.

Digimat: so mr. canon, all we need now is a snappy compact range of 15mm 1.8, 22mm 1.8, 33mm 1,8 and 52mm 1.8 prime lenses. dont take another 4 years please.

I just want Sigma to make the 8-16, 18-35 and 50-100 with EOS M mount....

"So, about those lenses..."

Please test how the camera performs with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 (via adapter). How they focus in stills mode, if the stated "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" works and how effective it is. I would really appreciate this, thanks.

In reply to:

dopravopat: If the camera works well with my Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 lenses via the adapter, including image stabilization using sensor-shift only, Canon has a buyer. Hopefully the Sigma 8-16 will work as well. The specs of the M5 are fine. ML would be nice too, as it provides useful still image features as well. I do not intend to shoot video. I am curious how the M5 will perform and how it handles 3rd party lenses.

Dpreview should correct their statement "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" then.
