Canon EOS 250D and Canon EOS M50 are digital cameras and were announced in April 2019 and February 2018 respectively. Canon 250D is a DSLR camera, while the M50 is a mirrorless camera. Both have APS-C sensor and they both offer a resolution of 24 megapixel results..

Comparison of Body
The two cameras are presented according to their sizes. Both cameras’ all height, width, and depth measures are rounded to the nearest mm.
Both canons cameras are available in black and white.
If we take the front view area of the cameras as a total measure of the size, the Canon EOS M50 is 10% smaller and 13 % lighter than the Canon 250D.
The sensor inside a digital camera is one of the key determinants of image quality and its size matters a lot. A large sensor means larger individual pixels which is eventually results in a wider dynamic range, better low-light sensitivity, and richer color-depth than smaller pixel-units in a sensor of the same technological generation. Also, it offers the photographer more control over depth-of-field. Larger sensors downside is that, that they tend to be associated with larger, and expensive camera lenses and bodies.
Canon’s cameras have a format factor of 1.6, an APS-C sensor, and a native aspect ratio of 3:2.
Canon EOS 250D has a sensitivity range from ISO 100 to ISO 25600 and can be extended to ISO 100-51200 respectively whereas, the M50 offers exactly the same ISO settings.
After a comparison of body and sensor, we will check the features of the two cameras as they both differ. Like the M50 has an electronic viewfinder (2360k dots), while the 250D has an optical one.
Both have their own benefits like with the EVF it is possible to project supplementary shooting information into the framing image, and in the optical viewfinder, you cannot view and project a clear framing view.
Canon 250D and the Canon M50 both cameras have an articulated screen that can be turned to the front-facing. This is really great for photographers who are interested in taking selfies and vloggers.
Both cameras have an intervalometer built-in. This feature enables the photographer to capture time-lapse sequences, for example, a sunset, moonrise, or a flower blooming, without having an external camera trigger.
Some applications prefer the extent to which a camera can communicate in its surroundings and it can be an important aspect in the camera decision. In particular, the interfaces the cameras provide for data transfer and accessory control.
Question is, Is the Canon M50 better than Canon 250D or vice versa? The below points highlights the relative strengths of the two cameras.
