Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless DSLR Camera w/4K Video

On Sunday, July 6, 2019, I damaged my Canon PowerShot A590, beyond repair. I was so devastated by what happened (rushing to pack up, I dropped it on the hardwood floor), I cried. I seldom cry.

I purchased the camera in 2008 and loved the many features this point and shot offered. I seldom went anywhere without it.

That said, the camera could only produce 8MB photos. Though my web hosts should have loved the small footprint of the images I used with my posts, my social media account offerings- looked a little shabby in comparison to others.

For various reasons, all of the images and photos I use on my business site, are hosted on my domains, and not a cloud or image hosting service, like Flickr. Digital photo size is an important factor in my environment and provides part of the rational for why I held off replacing the camera. The other reason? I could not justify the business expense.

That said, I did have plans to purchase a new camera in December 2019 (Christmas), and researching the Canon EOS M50. Late in the evening on July 6, 2019, I ordered the following bundle.

I have to say, I am very pleased with this new camera. Additional info about my purchase(s):

  • Love the TouchScreen Menu.
  • Love the Manual Focus and Portrait Features.
  • Also purchased BM Premium 2-Pack of LP-E12 Batteries for Canon etc..
  • Also purchased the Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Auto Adapter.
  • Also purchased the telephoto Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM Lens for Canon SLR Cameras- see more here.
  • Love the 4K Video option.
  • Love the Digital Slave Flash that came with the bundle.
  • Love the 9 different filters that also came in the bundle.
  • Love the many YouTube videos about the Canon EOS M50.

The following is an example using the Portrait option on the Canon EOS M50.

I am still playing around with the many features of the camera and other tools that came in the bundle. That said, I have found things pretty easy to understand and have come up-to-speed quickly (yes, I know the above photo, is a little overexposed). This is my first DSLR camera, and though I wanted to wait for Christmas, I am pleased with my selection.
