Camera Canon M50 Picture Quality

My friend and I both have the Canon m50 with the same lens but the quality of his looks drastically better. I pressed INFO on both our cameras and matched the settings but that did not fix the issue. My cameras quality is smooth and fuzzy and kind of pixelated while just looks completely better overall and sharp. His camera also appears to handle lighting better. After mirroring the settings through INFO, I have no idea what to do because it looks like two different cameras. Please help.

Hi Christina,
Thanks for your question. Sorry you are having image quality issues with your Canon 50M. I'd really need to have you send me the raw file to make an evaluation of why it's not sharp. Feel free to send it to bruce(at)canoncamerageek.com.

It's possible (but unlikely) that you got a bad copy of the Canon m50 or a bad lens (more likely). You may have to send it back for another copy (depending on your purchase date). I don't know if your technique needs to be adjusted a bit. Proper scientific sharpness comparisons should be done using a tripod, a cable release or self-timer, and mirror lock up. You shouldn't have to go to that extreme, but it's the best way to evaluate your M50 with your M50 lens.

I hope you are able to respond.
Thanks,
Bruce
