  1. It's a year later and as a PhD student, I've been reviewing this small amounts at à time. (because of my intense class and study schedule). This video, coupled with your actual class that I purchased is outstanding. In my opinion, you literally surpass my college professors with your ability to teach. Your class was well worth the purchase. I'm still here reviewing, and it gets easier to understand. Thank you… thank you.

  2. So much great info. I'm basically watching bit by bit so I don't feel overwhelmed..I just got my first camera last week and finally opened the box today. No idea how to use it yet 🙂

  3. This video is very good at going through all details without assuming the viewer already knows something as well as leaving what is important up to the viewer to decide but oh god how irritating the redundancy is. This video could be upwards of three times shorter if you just didn’t repeat everything in three slightly different ways all the time. Repetition is a good thing for learning, but in a video format, if I need repetition, I just go back! It’s just a time sink to hear everything so many times.

  4. Thanks Michael 🙂 two days to see your video tutorial, my brain is ko but I'm ready for the m50 :)))
    I bought the used white eos m50 with one year of warranty left, after several studies on which camera to buy.
    For the videos for now I will do with the standard 15-45, I will buy the 35-80 f 4-5.6 lens, cheap to start my digital journey. what do you think about 35-80?

  5. I'm only half way through this video and have learned so much already. I don't even have this camera yet. I have been thinking about it for weeks, just waiting on income tax. Only thing is I am going to get the M50 Mark II. It's basically the same camera with a few new features so this video is awesome. This will be my first nice camera EVER so I figured I would go with the Mark II. Any chance of you adding a tutorial for the additional new features on that one? Thanks so much for this. It has helped me make up my mind on whether or not to purchase this. Other cameras are out of my budget as I will need some lenses too. (I will get your crash course when the camera gets here).

  6. Thanks for the help, using this new camera properly is going to make a vast improvement to my YouTube output as well as my upcoming Online Tuba Course. These tutorials here are much more convenient than reading the tiny instruction booklet, thank you!

  7. Got my M50 about 3 hours ago. Newb that caught the photgraphy bug. I know literally nothing and this video (after looking at many while waiting for my camera to show up) is the perfect lesson for new student. Definite way to lessen the frustration level. Thanks for taking the time to go into such great detail and creating the timeline. You definitely hit the mark.

  8. Just a note of thanks for the amount of time you put into this Micheal. When people ask me to recommend a specific camera, I always tell them to look at YouTube reviews. And in this case, watching this video sealed the deal for me. I did chuckle a bit, with all the focus being on a beginner camera – it really is beyond beginner, but Canon allows new users to keep things basic while you learn how to use all available features. Most reviewers will tell you Canon menus are logical and intuitive. It's so easy to jump between using my M50 and my 5D. My M50 is a travel camera…especially when I am with a group. Light and smaller, it's a joy to carry around. And the best part, is that Canon made the adaptor to allow usage of EF-s and EF lenses. I put that adaptor on and tested my 70-200 L lens and my 16-35L…and the output is simply excellent. Another lens to recommend is the 40mm F pancake – ultra thin and yet as crisp as the nifty 50 , 50/1.8.

    Now, if only the adaptor provided an added control ring to use as an aperture control (like Canon did with the R5/R6 adaptor).

  9. Great video! Learning lots. Is there such a thing as a perfect setting for a sunrise or sunset? My foreground is clear and background is blurry? Struggling with AV.

  10. Question: I was trying to shoot a vlog at the beach today and the camera keeps focusing in and out blurring (this keeps happening on all of my Canon's and is so frustrating) do you have any advice for this situation? Thank you for taking the time to make this video and all the table of contents in the description box. Amazing work, brilliant mind and super pleasant instructing voice 🙂 Mahalo!
