REASONS WHY I LOVE THE CANON M50 // AN INSTAGRAMERS IDEAL CAMERA.





Being the photography geek that I am, you must understand how hard it’s been to NOT buy any gear for like 3 years, right?! It’s like not buying a pair of shoes for 3 years if you have a shoe addiction. Is that a good example? I don’t know but you probably understand how frustrating it’s been for me!  
Here’s the thing, I couldn’t justify buying anything else for a while because I already had everything I needed, it was just the case of wanting but c’mon, it’s ok to want now and again, am I right?   
As soon as I saw this beautiful little thing being talked about on the internet, it was calling my name. Like a Wispa bar whispers my name at midnight. ;-) Terrible I know... 
I kept researching and kept looking at the specs, reviews and making sure it’s something I would benefit from for what I wanted it for. I just knew it was going to end up in my hands someday and that someday is now. Finally! 
Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a breakdown of the specs, it’s simply to explain why I love this camera and why it’s a great camera for beginners. 

WHAT’S THE REASON FOR WANTING THIS CAMERA? 
It’s not for my business for once! I wanted it for my personal stuff and vlogging. I knew this camera was great for vlogging, the video performance is really good with the choice of putting an external mic in it AND a really cool screen that tilts and turns around so it’s easy to capture everything.  I’m not going to bore you with the specs because you can just google it.  
I will say though, for photography in the day time just out and about it’s great. The image quality if you pair it with the 22mm 2.0 lens is gorgeous. Not bad with the kit lens either to be honest!  

THE BEST THINGS ABOUT THE CAMERA? 
The most important things that sold it to me were: 

THE SIZE 
I think it’s pretty obvious why the size is a massive pro to me. I don’t want to carry my big 5D mk iii around everywhere with me. That’s the whole reason why I wanted another camera. 

THE IMAGE QUALITY 
I honestly think it’s great especially for travelling, portraits, landscapes. I love it. 

THE SCREEN 
I love how the screen tilts and turns around in all directions, it’s perfect for doing self-portraits, vlogging and flat lays. 

THE DUAL PIXEL AF 
It’s amazing! Seriously so good and fast. Apart from in 4k, it doesn’t have it in 4k. (Let’s not get into that) 

IT HAS WI-FI 
I am absolutely LOVING it’ ability to connect to your phone and after taking a photo it sends straight to your phone at either a reduced size or its original size, (your choice). You can also use your phone for live view shooting which is an awesome feature! 
If you want to post on social media on the go with great quality images this is perfect for you. 

THE PRICE 
I honestly think you get a lot for the price! It’s really bloody reasonable in my opinion. It is a beginner's camera, it’s not the professional range but that’s all I need for my personal use and for a beginner's camera it is bloody GOOD!

There are a couple of things that could definitely be improved with this camera which are mostly to do with the 4k video and lack of lenses, but that didn’t matter to me because I won’t be using it to shoot in 4k. 1080 is perfectly fine for me so it really didn’t matter. If they were improved I’m pretty sure it would reflect in the price too. 
You can also get an adapter for the lenses so that doesn’t matter really.  I bought the 22mm because it’s a small pancake lens and I want this camera to remain small, I don’t want to put a great massive lens on it that outweighs the little thing and makes it difficult to carry around because that would defeat the purpose. 

If you’re looking for a great camera for photo and video and you’re not a pro then I highly recommend this camera. You have the ability to learn in Manual mode if you want to, but if you don’t it’s great anyway. 

I love this camera and I can’t wait to take it everywhere with me! :-)
