    I have been a Sony camera owner for 10 years, and the built in stabilization along with other features is why I have kept buying Sony cameras. I need a smaller camera, because my old A77mrk2 is a little heavy for me to film vlogs. I will pass on the a6400, since it is lacking the stabilization. I do like the center eye piece of the M50.

    Thank you Guys! This video was really helpful! No longer am on the "fence"... the Sony A6400 is the best choice. It was due to the video capacity, including the auto focus. Thank you again for this video! Thank you for your support! )))

    This video has been immensely helpful. I was trying to figure out which first camera I should go for- the best rn? Or.. the runner up but all around good! Not to mention really suitable for a beginner. So I'm going with the Canon M50. I also dig aesthetics and such so having it in white is also nice, haha

    Definitely the Sony A6400, like the fact that you don't have a cap on recording time, but the price

    I think the 200D Mark 2 vs the canon M50, the Mark 2 200d is a much better option between to the 2.

    Hey Think Media, i m currently using the m50 and it is in deed a great camera for Vlogs, however when it comes to 4k it simply doesn't not do the job at all, i m thinking of getting the new Sony 6600. Great videos by the way
