When it comes to choosing an entry-level APS-C camera, you might struggle to sift through the endless array of options. Fortunately, the guys at DP Review have put together this excellent overview of three major contenders: the Sony a6100, the Canon EOS M50, and the Fujifilm X-T200.
For this video, the criteria are split into image quality, lens choice, autofocus performance, video quality, displays, and handling. Personally, I think that the Sony APS-C cameras offer a really solid range of options that can suit every budget, but while they can give great value for money, I always hesitate to recommend them to those who are new to photography, simply because the handling and interface are such a barrier.
The Canon M50 is by far the oldest camera on this list, but it still holds up pretty well, assuming that you don’t need 4K video. If you’re after a vlogging camera, it’s a great choice, as espoused by landscape photographer and YouTuber Thomas Heaton. Be sure to check out this video to find out why he thinks that the M50 has suddenly become an even better option.
Which would you choose and which would you recommend to someone starting out in photography and videography? Leave a comment below.
