Canon-EOS-M50 vs iPhone???

(1/2) > >>

Mrblues101:
So, im artis illustrator and im looking for good camera for non-MS related project (video marketing project).

So, sadly; i dont know anything about taking photos or recording

The recomendation i get is to buy a Canon-EOS-M50 because it is the camera that brokes with the amateur quality of pics/video, and anything better that this one will be a high jump on price (as the one who recomend me this camera told me).

The problem is that i can see iPhone and other Hi-Tech mobiles taking amazing quality videos and pics.

It is worth buying this camera?

qunamax:
Camera is only worth as much as a lens you attach to it. In other words, if you are not going to utilize the advantage of different lenses, there is no point in getting an interchangeable lens camera.
In another words, I have a phone that takes nice 4K video but I don't film anything with it because I can't attach my 85mm f1.4 lens to it, so I prefer filming with Nikon dslr in 1080p.

I agree that glass still makes the biggest difference, the other thing is your budget: Everybody has one.

In the absence of that, I'd recommend two ideas:
For camera - any mirrorless camera is great.  Canon is good.  I have Canon glass to this day but had to switch to a Sony body because Canon didn't innovate fast enough.  I would argue this sony is great for a modest budget: https://www.sony.com/electronics/interchangeable-lens-cameras/ilce-6500-body-kit Many YouTubers are using this camera and making a ton of money with it.  Why not Stock people?

For iphone/android, I love Filmic Pro: https://www.filmicpro.com/

You'll get a ton more opinions.  Best advices is define your parameters and what you really hope to get out of any piece of gear.  Then do your research and shop for the best price.  You'll always be happy with what you get then.

Hope this helps,
Dennis

Agree with this. I use a variety of FF cameras by Sony and their AF system & Video is excellent.

If you want to keep things really compact and have fast AF, Eye AF in stills and video, the new Sony RX100 vii which is just being released is also a good option. At 1,199 it's a bit more than the A6500 body but, you don't have to buy any lenses... it has the 24-200 built in and fits into a jacket/trouser pocket as well!

It's Not the Camera My Friend. If It was there would be a few 100.000 More amateurs doing stock killing the Business even Further. It's about you and your eye. and Taking the time to Learn what your doing regardless of some pretty Necklace . I've done Gallery shows with  cellphone Prints and top Of the Line state Of the art DSLRS that cost a small Fortune. It's about You. Now.......If you shot for clients Like some Of us do. ???A cellphone ain't gonna cut it.
