Our favourite entry-level mirrorless camera is now only $699 or £669 with 18-45mm IS STM kit lens. The Canon EOS R50, is one of our favourite entry-level mirrorless cameras. There aren’t many entry-level mirrorless cameras left at this price point, and those that are cheaper often compromise on features, so this saving is a bit of a bargain!

Not only did the Canon EOS R50 win an award at the annual AP Awards, it also scored 4-stars in our Canon EOS R50 review. We were impressed by the compact and lightweight camera body, the capable autofocus system, rapid continuous shooting, as well as the excellent JPEG results, with Canon’s colour science continuing to shine.
