Our rating of the Canon EOS M50

No rating available.

Our rating of the Canon EOS M6

A powerful mirrorless camera with a good feature set (Wifi, stabilizer, Bluetooth) but no support for 4K video. An electronic viewfinder ($250) can be added via the extension connector on the top of the camera. Like other "M" cameras somewhat handicapped by the very small selection of native lenses for the M mount. Still worth a consideration if you already have some Canon glass and are willing to use an adapter.
