Fujifilm X-T100 Advantages:

  • Lens Selection – Better lens selection gives you more options
  • Slightly Larger Sensor – More sensor area. Bigger is (generally) better.
  • In-Camera Panoramas – Stitches multiple shots into a panoramic photo
  • Longer Stills Battery Life – 430 vs 235 SHOTS Capture more photos.
  • Faster Shutter –1/32000 vs 1/4000 Shoot wide open in bright light

Canon M50 Advantages:

  • Bigger LCD Screen – 3.2″ compared to 3.0″ with noticeably higher resolution. This doesn’t affect your photographs/videos, but does allow you to precisely see if your focus is spot on
  • Slower Slo-motion – Supports slower slow-mo
  • 10 vs 6fps – Both cameras are fast enough for sports and wildlife, but the extra 1fps helps if you often shoot wildlife and want more shots to increase your chances of getting a razor sharp photograph
  • Viewfinder – 100% viewfinder coverage. Since it’s EVF (electronic) you can see how your shot is going to look like before taking a picture.

Both cameras are very similar, but if you’re looking for something small and light. Especially for vlogging we recommend Canon M50 with its advanced features in burst speed, native ISO and RAW buffer at this price tag.
