Today we are going to be going over what we feel is the best tripod for Canon m50 cameras on the market right now. We have lost count of the number of times we have seen m50 owners reaching out for advice on what camera they should be picking up only for someone to instantly recommend a high priced Manfrotto tripod.
Thankfully, times have changed and over the last few years a few budget-friendly tripod brands have successfully broken into the tripod market with their own tripod ranges. These have essentially provided camera owners a much larger choice of tripods as they offer similar quality as the traditionally strong brands but at a fraction of the cost. In our opinion, you should be seriously considering picking up these more budget-friendly tripods rather than the Manfrotto ones that can cost as much as treble of the tripods we will be featuring.
The Zomei Z818 General Tripod
The tripod offers all of the functionality that you would expect from a traditional tripod while also including a detachable leg that you can remove and use as a fully functioning monopod. Now we would like to point out that the Zomei Z818 is a traditional ball head tripod. If you are planning on using your Canon m50 for videography then we would advise that you consider picking up a cheap Pan Head (Click here to check for product prices and availability) for the tripod.
This offers all the functionality of a pan head tripod like the ability to quickly and easily record epic panning footage of vistas or capture panoramic photographs. Even if you do choose to pick up this accessory the price of the pan head and the actual Zomei Z818 still works out around half the price of the equivalent Manfrotto tripod offering a real bargain.
The Zomei Z818 uses a standard quick release plate system to enable you to mount and unmount your Canon m50 within seconds. Additional cheap quick release plates for the Z818 (Click here to check for product prices and availability) are also available so you can pick up additional plates for any other cameras that you own allowing you to hot swap between your cameras on the fly without needing to waste time.
The image stabilization of the Zomei Z818 is excellent offering you superior image quality at a budget-friendly price tag. The rubber feet of the tripod do a great job at securing the legs in place and preventing them from accidentally slipping. The legs of the tripod are made from a very strong and lightweight Magnesium and Aluminium alloy that offers a very robust tripod rig and the legs feature the quick and easy to use twist lock leg system to secure your tripod in place.
The upper payload of your Zomei Z818 is easily able to support your Canon m50 camera body with a large number of camera accessories mounted on it such as a lens, a microphone or flash, and any other number of combinations you can think up. The tripod also has a great little counterweight hook at the base of its center column to allow you to add additional weight to the tripod in windy conditions to further increase the level of stability it provides.

The Zomei Z555 Travel Tripod
Again, it is a standard ball head tripod but you can pick up the cheap pan head attachment (Click here to check for product prices and availability) to add some quick and easy panning functionality to the tripod to help improve its video performance for your Canon m50. Although a small lightweight tripod, it offers some excellent image stabilization helping to improve the image quality your m50 can provide you.
It is also very easy to set up and can be fully built and ready to use in less than thirty seconds allowing you to quickly and easily start capturing photographs or recording video while out and about on your travels. Although the upper payload limit of the Zomei Z555 is lower than the Zomei Z818 is can still easily support the weight of your m50 and any camera accessories that you may be using with it without issue.
