Save $100 on the Canon M50 camera kit at Amazon for Black Friday

As we barrel toward Black Friday, the early deals keep cropping up, and some of these discounts on the best tech are as good as we’ve ever seen. Among the impressive Amazon Black Friday deals, we’re seeing this standout: Right now, get $100 off the Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Vlogging Camera Kit. It’s everything you need in a semi-pro digital camera — from the best pics to your vlogging needs — now just $549, down from its regular price of $649. Snap this deal up while you can.

The Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless is as talented a camera you’ll find in this range, and it’s super versatile too. It can shoot video in 4K and has hugely impressive photo capabilities, even in low light. Also, for ease of use, there’s a swivel touchscreen, which can really help you set up and review your shots.  Additionally, it’s loaded with shooting modes, so switching up shooting modes is as simple as touching a button. But with this deal, you don’t just get the camera, but a whole kit.  There’s the camera, an EF-M 15-45mm lens, tripod to set up your steady shots or video recording station, and a backpack.

Part of what makes this camera so great is the fact that it’s mirrorless. Why go mirrorless? As opposed to DSLRs, with a mirrorless camera, the image doesn’t have to be reflected before it goes into a viewfinder. Instead of that viewfinder, you get a digital preview on the rear screen, which can be really advantageous when setting up the perfect shot. The mirrorless quality allows this camera to be thinner, more compact, faster, and more adept at shooting video.

The small size of the Canon EOS M50 is just one of the attractive design elements. It’s got an ultra pared-down build, and there’s a single control dial, which is ideal for quick actions and takes a lot of the fuss out of taking pictures.  The camera measures 4.6 x 3.5 x 2.3 inches and weighs 13.7 ounces, which puts it around the same size as many entry-level mirrorless cameras, which are not capable of doing half the work. The menu and operating system are also super easy to use. And yet there’s a ton of power and features hidden in this small package

Getting a little more into this camera’s guts, we find a 24.1-megapixel sensor. It features Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system, an auto-focus improvement over previous versions, which brings in images in sharp detail and really extraordinary colors. As for the lens, the EOS M50’s EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM kit lens boasts 3x optical zoom. We’ve seen much larger ranges, but it’s fine for its size and will take care of your day-to-day needs. As for video, there’s a similar brilliance, arriving from the camera’s ability to shoot in 1080p. Really, what else do you need in an everyday camera?
