What Lens to Buy For Canon M50
Ideal Frame Required
(Wide Angle Lens Needed)
I'm about to branch of into the world of dslr so I'm a complete newbie.
Im looking to get a canon m50 but unsure of what accompanying lens to get.
I film mostly indoor studio. It's really well lit.
I need a lens that with give a head to toe frame minimum and with decent width too as its a narrowish room.
Currently using gopro 7 and note 9 camera phone.
Really appreciate any advice and time given.
Welcome to the world of Canon mirrorless cameras. Thanks for asking for the best lens to go with your M50 for shooting indoors in a small space. Since you are starting with an affordable camera and describe yourself as a newbie, I'd recommend you delay getting one of Canon's Cine prime lenses, even though it sounds like your "filming" video.
Best Canon M50 Lens
Since you asked about getting just one lens I'd recommend a zoom lens. Your description and the photo above of your shooting environment shows that you'll have plenty of light and won't really need a fast lens with a large maximum aperture. That eliminates the need for a fast prime lens. Here are my top 3 recommended lenses for your Canon M50.Best Lens for Canon M50, The EF-M 15-45mm Lens.1. CANON EF-M 15-45mm F/3.5-5.6
. This is the standard "kit" lens that goes with the M50 camera for a good reason. The 15-45mm lens covers wide angle and moderate telephoto and is very affordable. It's maximum aperture at the wide end is only f/3.5 and f/5.6 at the telephoto end, but it sounds like that won't be an issue for you. This is a nice compact lens too.2. CANON EF-M 18-150mm F/3.5-6.3
. Not quite as capable at the wide end of its zoom range, this potential lens for your M50 gives you a lot more versatility if you want to shoot tightly cropped scenes, or shoot more distant subjects at some point in the future. Versatile Lens For Canon M50 Camera, The 18-150mm.
I don't know the exact dimensions of your indoor studio is, so I don't know for sure if it will give you the width you need. On the "crop" sensor of the Canon M50, the 18mm focal length has an equivalent angle of view of 29mm, which is moderately wide.3. CANON EF-M 11–22mm F/4−5.6
. Although its zoom range is only a limited 2x, the 11-22MM focal length would give you plenty of width to shoot in a small studio. This is definitely classified as an indoor lens, but would also be great for shooting large groups of people as well as landscapes with the M50.Super Wide Zoom Lens For Canon M50 Camera, The 11-22mm.
If your room is small and you're shooting video in the horizontal format, then you'll likely need the wide angle that the 11-22mm lens has. It gives you the equivalent angle of view as a 17-35mm lens on a full frame camera.
