I recently received an email from a reader asking if he should switch to a Sony APS-C camera from his current Canon M50 Mark II because he keeps seeing rave reviews from reviewers. Sony performance.
He mentioned that he is a combo shooter but not a professional shooter, so I’d love to agree, as I was disappointed when I tested the M50 II myself. However, my advice to him is that if he is satisfied with his M50 II, there is no need to change to a new system. But if he really wants to upgrade, then consider Canon’s latest R-series APS-C offerings – the EOS R7 or EOS R10, depending on his budget.
You may think I’m biased, but at the time of this writing, I can’t think of any other affordable crop sensor cameras that offer the same kind of speed and performance as the latest bodies. by Canon.
And this is especially true for R10. It’s a camera that delivers great value for money by balancing a plethora of innovative features and performance in a very compact body.
And I am not alone in this thought, as another colleague of mine believes that the R10 is currently the best camera for beginners. I photographed the EOS R7 whale and it was interesting to see that its autofocus performance is on par with products like the EOS R5 and EOS R3.
Balance price and performance
While both the R7 and R10 are designed primarily to convince more users of Canon’s APS-C DSLRs to switch to mirrorless, both make compelling cases to be. The first camera for beginner photographers or anyone who just wants a ‘real camera’ camera.
Canon Cameras on Black Friday
If you’re looking for an affordable camera and the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 are out of reach, then you should keep an eye out for Black Friday deals.
These take place in November, leading up to the official November 25 date, and likely include some impressive Black Friday camera deals. Canon cameras often stand out quite prominently in the sale, and models like the Canon EOS M50 II (which the EOS R10 has effectively succeeded in) can be discounted making them real bargains.
In fact, in terms of speed and performance, they can outperform most crop sensor models from Sony and Fujifilm… even the Micro Four Thirds options for that matter. In this particular reader’s use case, the R10 is certainly far ahead of its EF-M cousin.
Photographers looking for their first ‘real’ camera, or upgrading from an older Canon APS-C model (DSLR or mirrorless), will find the R7 and R10 a major upgrade without a hitch. too much mark, especially since most EF lenses can be fitted to the body with an adapter.
New and existing Canon users won’t have any problems moving around either as the intuitive user interface and performance are just an absolute reveal – everything works very smoothly.
Despite trying to keep costs down, Canon still provides both of its R-series crop sensor models with many of the features typically found on higher-end models.
From Dual Pixel CMOS AF II that matches performance on professional-grade sports cameras, to high-speed continuous shooting (23 fps for the R10 and 30 fps for the R7) , 10-bit HEIF video capture and recording at 4K/30p, even some weather resistance on the R7 – that’s more than what the average user wants.
In fact, current Canon DSLR users don’t get this level of performance, even with newer models like the EOS 90D.
It’s not just the internal specs of the R-series crop sensor cameras that make the case for them – compactness is also a huge plus. For readers who emailed me, there won’t be a huge difference in size between the M50 II and either of Canon’s two new APS-C models, but DSLR users will feel the difference right away.
And the new RF-S lenses play an important role in keeping the system compact. While there are only two zoom levels in the native lens range, we’re pretty sure Canon will quickly fill in its stabilization as it did with its full-frame system. Additionally, all RF lenses work with APS-C bodies without an adapter, and there are several affordable lenses available in this range right now.
However, while we wait for more native RF-S lenses, it’s hard to argue that Canon has done a good job of reverting to its old form, creating cameras that offer difficult combinations. between design, features and performance. I’m even willing to take the risk and say that, at the time of this writing, the EOS R10 is by far the best mid-range model out there and our pick of the best camera for beginners. begin. It is also included in the list of the best cameras you can buy right now.
