  1. Nice! Can you send me a link to that m50 cage? I like that set up and need it for my next shoot. Thanks for sharing this! I almost bought some old c mount lenses but was hesitant since they’re not made for aps-c size sensors. Also, there are m42 to EF-M speedboosters available. I almost bought that but still on the fence about it.
  2. Which wooden camera cage are you talking about? Can you give us a link? I have an m50 and just preordered the small rig cage recently but it doesn't arrive until july and I need one now.
  3. I own the camera. I’ve used it for about 3 weeks now and love it! I mainly do vlogs but I’ve also done some cinematic test with it and it rocked! It’s not an Alexa but it’s still a powerful tool. here is my film test: and here is my latest vlog:
  4. The EOS M50 Rocks! It's not the spec king of mirrorless cameras but the canon eos m50 just works! The auto focus, canon colors, canon menus, and just the overall ease of use makes this camera perfect for me and my passion projects. Here is a link to some shots I grabbed with the camera while my students were filming their short film. Forgive me for the bad sound. The students recorded sound separately but not while I was filming. The sound is decent. Overall this was just a test to see how would this camera would look under cinematic lighting. I got this camera for vlogging mainly but after seeing what it was able to produce with good lighting I'm definitely going to be using it for my short films. Here is the link to the camera test:
  5. I know I'm late to reply to this thread but I just want to say that I think Canon nailed it with this camera! My main gripe is that it doesn't have dual pixel autofocus for the 4k, but overall its a solid vlog camera and a good photo camera as well.
  6. thx for the rec. Is that an M mount lens? or an EF? And its prob a variable aperture right?
  7. Yea for sure lol. I am trying to figure out what other lens I can use to vlog. Even though I really like that focal length, 24mm is def not wide enough for me.
  8. In the link below I unbox the M50 and also test it out by making a vlog with it. My first experience with this camera blew my mine. The wonderful canon colors and the amazing DPAF are definitely its strong points but the camera is also well built and super easy to use. The perfect vlogging camera for sure. The first half of the video was shot on the iPhone 7 plus and the rest on the M50 with a 24mm pancake lens. Also, I had just took it out the box so forgot to set auto exposure off for most of the video :/ but I eventually turned it off late in the video(was in a rush cuz the wife was hungry). Either way the image was an image I was very happy with and an image perfect for the web. Also, just an FYI, I am releasing 4 more vlogs this week all shot on the M50 so if you kind of like this vlog you will kind of like the rest hopefully :p LOL

    Gh5 or 5d mk iv?

    I own 5 canon lenses. DPAF is great but I don't necessarily need it but helps a lot in certain situations so I'd prefer to have it. My clients don't demand 4K yet since most of my stuff is for the web and yes I plan on keeping my c100. One of my main reasons for switching to panny was because of that new cine cam coming out. If it's a game changer I was considering to buy the gh5 sell the c100 and buy that new Panasonic camera. But just not sure how good that image will look compared to a c100/c300. So if this camera is not game changing then I'm keeping my c100 and buying the 5d iv. But overall canon is my favorite image above all. So I'll probably be staying with canon either way lol. To me the image looks more filmic than other brands. Of course if u have an amazing DP he/she can make any camera image look great but with canon you don't have to do much work from my experience and IMO canon looks better.

    I second that and also hope they put c-log to the 1dx ii. That would be nuts if they did but canon just won't give us what we want. Canon is like that girlfriend in high school that you know is a freak but only teases you, but you stay with her because she looks better than all the other girls lol. Mean while you have Sony and Panasonic giving it all but don't look as good as that girlfriend named canon so you just go back to canon hoping that eventually she'll give in LOL.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. U guys rock! The gh5 looks great but it still looks videoy. Canons look still has an edge IMO. It just looks more organic and filmic. As soon as I hit play on these gh5 videos I immediately can see that it's a gh5 video. Dont get me wrong the image is not bad, it's just not filmic. There are times when I've seen some 5d3 raw clips and for a moment I can't tell whether it's film or video or a red or Alexa. Now I'm not saying that 5d3 ML raw is on the same level but I'm saying that some canon cameras could blend in way easier with the higher end cameras IMO. This is why top DPs in Hollywood, like Shane hurlbut, always praise canon above Sony or Panasonic. It just has that look that goes above Panasonic and Sony. People may love that gh5 video look but I honestly love the filmic look and I take that above any feature any day. Plus I hardly ever shoot slow mo so all these specs are good but not needed for me. The canon image is still better even though they are behind the times lol

    The first camera out of college I bought was the canon 5d mk ii and it was my work horse. And what's crazy is that the image still holds up today. Great and amazing camera. Also I was actually considering the 1dc over the 5d iv but the DPAF calls out to me lol. How do you like your 1dc and if you could would u trade it for a 5 d iv? So true Mercer. I totally agree. I actually owned an A7s and, while it was a great camera, the color just wasn't doing it for me. I went through several cameras after that trying to figure out what was pleasing to me. I ended up shooting with an old 60d and fell back in love with canon for the easy menus and the wonderful colors. I could effortlessly use the camera and get a great image without so much work(wow I sound lazy lol). Also, I actually owned an UM4.6k and returned it for a c100 mki. Canons DPAF, low light capabilities, color, ease of use, and reliability all made my decision to come back to canon so easy. And I didn't need 4K so yea. I guess my answer is becoming more clear guys! Canon, while stubborn and old fashioned, still tickles my fancy! lol I still will play around with my friends GH5 this weekend to see if I like it.

    I agree Ben. Color should be a spec. I guess what bugs me is the fact that canon seems to limit some of their cameras that can do more then what they're locked into doing. For example, look at the 5d iii and what the ML hack has been able to do with this cam. It shows the almost limitless capabilities that camera can do. But the 5d iii out of the box without jail breaking has hardly any video features. Why canon??? So canon makes cameras that are capable of being amazing but just blocks this from us and tries to force us to upgrade our camera. :/ And I get it. They don't want everyone buying just one of their cameras but that doesn't mean you completely make your dslrs crap. Look at Sony. Even though they have their FF mirrorless cams with a ton of video features people still buy a ton of fs5's and fs7's. I just don't get why canon can't do the same. I mean canon is just now putting c-log on the 5d iv! LOL Why now? Why not when the camera was released? C'mon canon! It's pretty ridiculous IMO.

    I highly doubt 4K 60p will be on that camera. Canon's lower end cameras have never had better features than their higher end cameras. Remember when the c300 first came out? They had 60p at 720p and the c100 didn't have any 60p Lol! I don't think canon will be changing their style anytime soon although they should. But if they don't change things up, Sony will be surpassing them in camera sales within the next 5 years IMO. Sony is killing it with their FF mirrorless cameras. I think canon doesn't get that people love specs and innovation. Even though canon has an overall better image they should not rely on that alone. They seem to not care what users are asking and needing. It's kind of annoying. I almost sometimes want to leave canon just because of their stubborn ways but their image brings me back :p

    Yea true. No matter how many times I try to leave canon I end up staying because of that wonderful image. Canon colors are just so juicy! Lol So hoping the c200 will be a game changer!
