Is it possible to have a USB power bank to provide power to the camera for long time timelapse? I know there's a DC coupler but that's not my first choice.

There's this sort of thing,

I use a Sony battery with a holder and the dummy battery I got with DC coupler.

Just found this,

Hi guys

I am going to join this thread because i bought a M50 today. I have owned the original M for a couple of years as a travel camera next to my 5D3's which I use professionaly.
But lately the slow focus annoyed me very much.
I was thinking of getting a M5 or M6 but then Canon released the M50 and since I already had the adaptor and a couple of lenses I decided to go for the M50.

And wow, played with it for a couple of minutes and I need to get used to it but I really like it already.

Will be posting pictures here soon

I think you'll like the camera. I am in a similar situation -- have a 5D3 and 7D2 -- and bought the original M + 22mm f/2 lens during Canon's fire sale and used it as a compact alternative to the big bodies. Got frustrated with the poor auto focus performance and lack of a viewfinder for outdoor use, so I picked up a M50 recently when B&H Photo had a good deal (body + EF-M 15-45mm lens + EF lens adapter for $679). I already had the EF-M 18-55mm lens, but sold it to a friend and kept the 15-45mm, as its focal range works better for me.

The AF performance is light years better than the original M, and the viewfinder works well. I picked up a used EF-M 55-200mm lens for a great price, and already own the compact Speedlite 270EXII. So, I have a complete kit for travel that fits in a small camera bag when I don't want to bring along the big equipment.

The only downside right now for me is the CR3 RAW files are not supported by DxO PhotoLab, which I have been using since Adobe stopped selling a perpetual license for Lightroom. For now, I've been using Adobe's RAW to DNG convertor and then processing the DNG files in Lightroom 6. Hopefully DxO will add the M50 to its supported cameras soon.

I took the little M50 with me on a trip today. Since i sold my 18-55 and have only the 22 left, I took one of my other lenses with a nice focal length, namely the 15-85. It is quite a hefty lens but it didnt bother me at all. It was like I was just holding the lens when shooting.

I took 3 batteries with me, took well over 400 shots and at the end I had to switch the battery. Not bad!

And wow, the focus is great and it shoots like a machine gun.

I think I am in love.

How’s everyone liking their m50? Happy/ disappointed after a time? I’m wondering if it’d make a better small backup/snap shooter than staying with Fuji and there’s still not a lot of info that I can find. Love the rendering on my Fuji but am tired of the missed shots.

I would not say that I fell in love with the M50, but still... I took it with me to the woods, not very good light, and I really liked it. Quick and reliable focus, sharp images, fairly easy to control (of course my fingers had to re-learn some moves after using DSLRs for years). The wife liked it too, so the decision was to keep it.

Will give it a work over during our trip to France that starts this Friday. Will post after the return home, or maybe from the house in Normandy if I have time.

Got no complaints. Bought it for the wife so she would not use my 5D Mark IV and I actually like it as well. Its nice and portable and does a pretty good job.

Nothing to feel I’m missing my 5D4. Had my M50 for over 2 months and it’s gone everywhere which me. Even to places I normally take my 5D4 like parades and shoes.
Ok, come winter when ISO’ creep up the 5D4 will be back in action, but so far it’s not been missed.
I’m
Even happy to use my M lenses over my L lenses.
I guess my standards are lower than some though.

Thanks all for the input. I wish there were more images to look through. Even flickr wasn't a whole lot of help. With my X-A1, I just leave the 27mm on it and shoot jpegs in B&W mode 98% of the time. It's my family gathering and just messing around camera. Thing is, I'm about to do some traveling where I may have to rely on my backup for more and I don't want another fullsized body. Was thinking it'd be an XT20 but retaining Canon mount (via adapter) is making a lot of sense.

Did you look in the M50 groups? I’m amazed you can’t find anything that helps.
You could even try the 80D groups, the output is so close you could never tell what camera took what shot.
If you doubt the M50 at this stage I suggest you stay way from it as you won’t be happy. You are obviously looking for something the M50 isn’t. With so many glowing testimonies still not convincing you it’s not going to change.

"At this stage" = only about 48 hours into this research. Hardly exhaustive at this point, hence why I came in here and asked for user opinions from a group of photogs I respect a little more than the masses on, say, dpreview forums. So many people want to harp on the 4k video that there's a lot of irrelevant (to my needs) noise to wade through. It's curious you could come to the conclusion that it is obvious I'm looking for something it isn't. FWIW your flickr stream was helpful.

Thanks for commenting on my photos.
I meant no disrespect when I posted.
By “this stage” I’m meant 3 or so months after it came out. There must be 1000’s of M50 images posted already, yet you said you didn’t find many helpful.
If you really can’t find much to convince you what the camera can do by now, and dont consider any of the owners on DPReview to offer much, my logical thought was it doesn’t do what you want it to do.
Again, I’m not being argumentative, just going by what you are saying, or at least how I read in to it.
I wish you luck in whatever you do go for.

Took advantage of a sale and great promo at our local camera store. In addition to the discounted price, also included in M50 and the 15-45mm are a hand strap, extra canon battery and 128Gb SD card. These three almost worth CAD$280($215). One good thing about these is the guy at the store I'm dealing with let me used the credit for freebies that I don't need. So I only took the extra battery and used the cost of the strap and SD card as credit for the 11-22mm lens. I can also use the credit to get the canon adapter for my EF/EF-s lenses however I decided to buy a Vello adapter instead, almost 1/3 the price of the original canon.

Here's a few pics I have in using the M50 in the first week of testing.

Using the kit lens, 15-45mm. Double exposure and merged in Photoshop. The 1st exposure is to freeze the leaves movement. The 2nd is for slowing down the water flow.

Great camera for travel. 11-22mm and 22mm pancake are great. The rumored 32mm f1.4 lens would be great addition to the system. Low light perfomance is somewhat disappointing but my main camera is 5div. E.g., I am happier with 5div’s files at ISO 12800 than at ISO 1600 with m50 in low light. If you need high ISO for action (fast ss) in better light than ISO3200 is quite good and similar to ISO 800 in low light due to significant shadow noise.
