Compact camera, kit lens is 3 1/2 stars, pictures are good, M mount requires an adapter to use other lenses, no in body stabilization leaving the stabilization weight penalty to be in the lenses or tripod or gimbal, It is a budget camera that will get you by if you are willing to work with it.
Pros: Compact, Well featured, Good Pics, articulating Touch screen,
Cons: Not Water Proof, Requires M mount expensive lenses, Plastic housing, small touch screen

If you want a camera that's perfect for vlogging while still being able to use your pro lenses, then this lil guy is the jackpot! Love how small and compact it is, shooting 4K videos is also a huge bonus!
Pros: Size, 4K video, ability to use my other lenses on it!
Cons: None- this camera is just that good

I have been a Canon user for many years now so getting that out of the way, I believe that the M50 is Canon comeback camera. Its what the next generation of bodies will be. Great APS-C sensor, industry-leading autofocus, great color rendition, fast interface with touchscreen (like an Iphone) and 4k all for a great price. WOW. Here is a situation you may encounter. You have a short trip with your significant other. you are a photo buff, you want to take your EOS 5D MkIII with 2 lenses and a flash. Easily 15 pounds of gear and a big bag. Your significant other looks at you and questions your focus from just taking photos to enjoying the scenery. In contrast for my next trip I am just taking my M50 a spare battery and the charger and let's go enjoy. and take great pics with less gear.
Pros: Compact, has all the features you want at a great price. Best AF ever. Did I say best AF for the best price.
Cons: The kit lens is ok like any other kit lens not impressive but usable. The 4K crop is severe, but if you want this camera for 4K look somewhere else.

Very pleased with the camera. The picture quality is clear and sharp and the fact it all fits in the palm of your hand is amazing. Let me address some main criticisms that most reviewers complain about: of the 1.) Battery. The supplied battery is woefully inadequate and no USB charging, but there is a very cheap workaround. I was able to buy two batteries complete with a USB charger for a lot less than a replacement single Canon battery. 2.) Cropped 4K. This is by far, the biggest criticism. Personally, I'm not that fussed, as the increased file size and processing power required to edit 4K outweighs the advancement in picture quality and watching on my 55" means I can't really tell the difference that much anyway. However, if 4K is a must, for a few more bucks, I purchased a Canon adapter ring, opening up a world of wide angle option lenses. A lot of these larger websites are constantly comparing to Sony and the M50 sometimes ends up on the losing end, but these sites always fail to weigh up all the positives aspects: 1.) The rotational display screen is a fantastic idea, allowing for taking shots in all kinds of angles and bonus, you can protect the screen when not in use by simply rotating the screen inwards towards the body of the camera. 2.) Most newer cameras have Wi-Fi capability, but Blue-tooth is the real winner on this, as it is always communicating to my smartphone when out and about. When taking a photo, the phone adds GPS location to the metadata
Pros: Fantastic pictures and loaded features.
Cons: Poor battery life.
