Canon M50 vs Canon SL2 Ultimate Comparison

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Today I’m going to compare the Canon M50 and the Canon SL2. These are two of the most popular cameras of the year and I have received a lot of requests for this video.

I’ll cover the strengths and weaknesses of the SL2 and the M50 for both photography and video, and compare everything frombody type, framerate and resolution, autofocus, lens options and portability.

I will also look at the M50 and SL2 in terms of battery life, image stabilization, timelapse and will even discuss the viewfinder.

Does the m50 have clean hdmi output???

Thank you so much for simply stating that video can be uploaded to smart phones. You’d be surprised at how many videos don’t make it clear that video can be directly uploaded to smart phones. After getting 30k subscribers from my first year YouTubing, I am finally making the upgrade from iPhone for filming to Camera. The SL2 is sounds good! What would you recommend though in terms of SL2 or SL3??

Also, you deserve waaaaaay more subscribers! Solid content, man!

Loved Your presentation 🔥

joseph uzamere says:

Everyone who disliked the video must be suffering from Asperger syndrome or something. I’m not a cam savvy but you can tell he knows his stuff and are well presented; though minor errors. Kudos (Ross from friends lol).

Gil Pineda says:

Abbey Martinni Gatmaitan says:

Which is better for a beginner like me, M50 or G7 x Mark II??? Specially for creating youtube contents and taking great image.

Filminger / says:

I’m late you probably won’t answer but for film making what are the best 3 lenses

Frugal Tesla Guy says:

What a great video! Thank you so much! As someone who is fairly new to the youtube world with my own channel I can appreciate a good youtuber. Nice work! Now I have to choose between the two. I have experience with DSLR and appreciate still photography but also need something to help me step up production quality of my youtube channel. I was all in with the M50 before I watched this video. I guess I have a little more research to do. Thanks again!

Make shorter videos please

Dan Robinson says:

You need a million subs. This has been one of the best reviews and comparisons with the M50. I have a bunch of cameras (T1i, 5d, T3, T7i, and G16) but I wanted something more compact than my DSLRs but with better quality photos than my G16. This was super helpful and I think I'm going to pick up a M50.
