|I own it||I want it||I had it|
The Canon EOS M50 is a midrange mirrorless camera with a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor, DIGIC 8 processor and Dual Pixel AF. With select lenses it offers Dual Pixel coverage of 88% x 100% and 143 AF points, with other lenses offering 80% x 80% coverage and 99 AF points. The M50 is the first Canon camera to use the CR3 Raw format, allowing for up to 50% smaller file sizes. The M50 is capable of taking burst at 7.4 fps with continuous autofocus for up to 10 Raw or 47 JPEGs.
The M50 has a fully articulating 3" touchscreen LCD with 1.04 million dots as well as an OLED electronic viewfinder with 2.36M dots. It can record 4K UHD video at 30p, albeit with a substantial crop and no Dual Pixel AF. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

As a stills camera, the EOS M50 is a solid choice for photographers who want something more advanced than an entry-level camera, without going overboard. Its image quality, improved AF system and wireless connectivity are all impressive, and the new C-Raw format is a nice bonus. If 4K video is what you're after, the M50 is not the camera for you due to its high crop factor, rolling shutter and mediocre AF performance.
Good for: People on the go who want something compact, with good connectivity and an accessible interface.
Not so good for: Anyone interested in 4K video capture. Those without easy access to a power outlet and don't want to carry a pocket full of batteries.
