Love the BIG zoom....already own the Sony HX400v (50x Optical) and HX60v (30x Optical). This Canon cam hits a sweet spot with its 40xOptical zoom..... Just love that extra reach and clarity afforded by a massive optical zoom. I thought Sony were on to something when they bought out that zoom lense that could attach to a phone... Personally thought it to be good ides (y)
This has a 40x zoom, that is it's selling point. Phone cameras are in competition with Sony rx100 type cameras, which are far superior.
Good camera but I can't see alot of people running to this with the way phone cameras have advanced but thanks for the post
Agreed, the picture quality just isn't sufficiently superior to a phone camera fot the average user to justify the price. I've no doubt the price reflects the relatively small production run compared to a flagship smartphone.
Great cam, but still too costly. Needs to be sub 300quid nowadays. Regardless thanks for posting and heated up (y) :D
It's basically a £121 for a firmware upgrade, poor show from Canon. They've basically given you eye AF/tracking in video and stills which can be very useful and a couple of other tweaks like slightly improved battery life which is still poor and vertical video. A tough call as image quality is identical, depends how much eye AF means to you as if you mainly do landscapes and scenic shots you won't need it. People and portraits is a different matter as eye AF and decent tracking if implemented well can be a game changer.
I currently do not own a camera, but I have been looking at this for a while now. Question is, do I go for this at £499, or do I fork out the extra £121 and get the mark II? Does anyone know if the extra features are worth that much?

Well I didn't know such things existed. I will ask a question tho as you seem into this...what is a really good slider/focus rail to use for stacks? Just want to bang up a shortlist. Maybe also the same item for stitches?
That I’m not sure of. However, even if you could the price of the RF lenses are astronomical. If one can afford to purchase RF lenses then they can afford to buy a higher end camera than the M50. That would be my view.
The one in your pocket made by Samsung, Apple, Google ...
The magic words I always look for are "phase detect auto focus". It's a lifesaver! (y) Sony and Olympus cameras have had it for the last few years. Sony is definitely the king of autofocus, but not necessarily easy to use. Panasonic should be avoided as it's terrible in many ways. But really it boils down to what budget you have and what you plan to shoot. Depending on that, the best option could be a £5000 cinema camera or a £300 360 degree action cam.
what camera do you guys recommend for video and pics

Has anyone used this camera for concert photography?
Think too much and you won't buy it. Its pretty good. The low light issue isn't so bad. Just need the right balance between iso and aperture and works OK.
I'm seriously considering upgrading my Canon 60D to this one, I want to primarily use it for photography I know the 60D much more superior and this one has a small battery but yet it is a lot smaller and lighter. At the same time the 60th is more weatherproof as well
It's back on (lol) (lol)
Yeah it's yoyoing. Keep an eye on it. It was at 610 earlier. I'll expire it tomorrow if it doesn't drop again.
I've got the M100 from the Dual Lens kit deal for £200 last year. I got a EF-S/EF > EF-M adapter for £12 on aliexpress and it works great with my Nifty Fifty (EF 50MM F1.8).
Hi, No professional photographer, but I bought this camera about 18 months ago in the same kit and it has performed well for me. I researched all available small cameras with interchangeable lenses in this price range at the time and visited several outlets, this model was getting good reviews and recommendation from many retailers. I moved from a Sony RX100M2 to this. I can say though after using it, the low light performance isn't great.
x2 The M50 in my opinion is for those that haven't discovered/tried Fujifilm.
Don't know the camera but I have used the lenses on a M100. Both worked well for me, though there are reports of variable quality between examples of the 15-45. Main advantage was when travelling, when the combination of camera and two lenses was incredibly light and small. Very nice being able to keep either spare lens to hand in a trouser pocket rather than stored away in a bag. Having camera and lenses ready for use is a real advantage. The range covered by the two lenses is almost large enough for any use. I have tried EFS and EF lenses on the M100 camera but they are too large and too heavy to match the camera, which unbalances the combination and takes away the main advantages of small size and light weight. A 100-400 EF lens is just comical when attached, and even a 55-250 EF-S lens looks huge. On that basis I wouldn't bother with the adapter - if I think a bigger lens is needed then I will take a bigger camera to match. The EF-M system seems neglected but has sold well in the far east, so is both unlikely to disappear and unlikely to get many new lenses developed.

The X-A7 is an equivalent model and is exactly £399 on the refurb site you mentioned.
The X-T200 with kit lens can be had from Argos for £549 which isn't bad. I didn't know that the X-T100 had slow AF, but at £250 for a refurb kit when in stock it's probably well worth it for some casual photographers to start off with perhaps.
I like both systems but the x-t100 has painfully slow autofocus. It can't compete with this models dual pixel autofocus. Perhaps it would be better to recommend the x-t200 or the X-A7.
For £500 I'd be looking at the Fuji X system cameras, the Fuji Store often do really good refurbished deals such as an X-T100 with 16-50mm kit lens for £250, or you can look an a used X-T20 if you like a lot of dials, and you know that the X Mount system is in it gor the long haul.
That deal has been going months and imo one that they haven't had in stock for a while. I'd been tracking it thinking i might get it as a cheap small solution but it was never available. I still don't think this is such a great deal though for a camera with a lack of dials and no evf and considering what else you can get under £500.

Could I ask what you would recommend on the economy end of the scale? One of those "bridge" cameras perhaps?
Canon m6 mark II is the next step up
What would be the next camera up from this ? Looking for a good vlog family camera hate the Sony menu
Hi. We have the g9 mark ii and you can charge the battery via the USB port on the camera which I believe is the case with this one. I’ve never taken the charger out of the box so I’d suggest a UK plug isn’t needed if you charge by USB.
Hi there, what plug should I order for this? Thanks
Thankyou for this! I think im going to go with a Canon sx740 as the optical zoom is what is important to me :)
iPhone 12 Pro has a 26mm normal lens, an un-stabilised 13mm ultra wide lens and a 50mm 'telephoto' lens. This Canon has a 24mm-100mm zoom lens and will get you twice as close as the iPhone optically and all focal lengths in between optically (the iPhone uses digital Ai to get closer than 50mm). 24mm is also considerably wider than 26mm. The Canon dosen't have the ultra wide option. This Canon is £315, the iPhone is £1,099.

Thank you for the reply, I will try and get some more information from the vendor.
Image stabilisation is definitely worth having for an extra £15 or £11 if you send it back. I gives you 3 to 4 stops of extra hand hold ability in poor light, and the UK majors in low light! You need to check that the vendor is selling you a new lens and the exact model. There have been about 4 of these kit zooms and the Currys one is probably the most recent example being version II IS though not sure how it differs from version I with IS.
Thanks, yeah I will but due to size and weight it will only cost £4 to post the lens
Thank you. I wanted the d3500 but just so expensive in comparison.
I paid £429 for the 2000D with an IS lens a couple of years ago so £375 seems like a good deal to me.

Amazon. I have just posted it on hukd. Not sure it will make it live. My first post.
Can I ask where you got it for £479, was just about to buy from JL at £599 with 15-45 lens. Thanks
I personally think so although I'm sure someone will disagree. The lens with this one is pretty much a do it all lens with decent zoom. The lens sells separately at a high price. 479 is still a good price though, it all depends if you want the bigger lens with it's versatility but also weight and lesser portability. Currys are selling the M50 with the 18-45 and a 55-200 lens for 699 as well, but I've seen a lot of people say that the 18-150 is better than those two put together
Well... With all the postprocessing could be better! I used my canon to take some pics in my room and the pictures from my £110 phone camera way way better. Took some outdoors and the pictures on my Mi8 pro way better. In reality this kinda kit is great if you know what your doing... Which is where I am a novice. Post processing on phones though is amazing!
