Catering to vloggers and content creators, the black Canon EOS M50 Mark II is a versatile multimedia camera with a well-rounded photo and video feature-set. Sporting improved focusing, recording, and sharing capabilities, the M50 Mark II still revolves around the proven 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor, which enable a quick 10 fps shooting rate, a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, and UHD 4K video recording at 23.98 fps, along with Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 for slow motion capture. Sensor-based Dual Pixel CMOS AF has been improved with faster speeds and refined Eye Detection AF performance, and supports both Eye Detection and Face Detection focusing modes when working with Movie Servo AF to help keep sharp focus on the subject matter. Additionally, Combination IS 5-axis image stabilization also helps to realize steady, shake-free recording by minimizing the appearance of camera shake.

Beyond just imaging, the M50 Mark II's physical design also suits content creation, especially with the inclusion of a large 3.0" LCD that sports a vari-angle design for working from high and low working angles and its touchscreen interface allows working with Touch and Drag AF for easier manipulation of the AF area. A 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder also allows for high-resolution eye-level viewing, too. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC is available for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device. Wireless connectivity also permits using the M50 Mark II as a webcam when using the EOS Webcam Utility Software. Also benefitting content creation, there is now vertical video recording capabilities, a movie self timer function, touch record control, and support for image.canon Cloud Service for improved workflow efficiency.

24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor

Both a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible ISO 100-25600 range, with an expandable ISO 51200 setting, suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise and afford Auto Lighting Optimizer for notable clarity in various shooting situations. UHD 4K video recording is also supported at 23.98 fps, along with Full HD 1080p60 and HD 720p120 settings for slow motion recording. Vertical video recording is supported, too, as well as clean HDMI output for high-resolution, high frame-rate streaming. Additionally, the processor affords a 10 fps continuous shooting rate, fast camera startup time, and short interval times between each frame for a more intuitive and efficient shooting process.

Enhanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. Eye Detection AF can also be used for portraiture and helps to prioritize focus on a subject's eye for ensured sharpness.

When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery. Additionally, Eye Detection AF can also be used with Movie Servo AF, and both Eye and Face Detection can be used with Servo AF modes, to help keep your subjects in focus as the center of attention.

Combination IS

Combination IS uses the built-in 5-axis digital image stabilization in conjunction with lens-based image stabilization systems to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This benefits recording while walking or moving and can also be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for more effective overall stabilization.

Body Design and Wireless Connectivity

  • Large 3.0" touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a vari-angle to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Integrated 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder permits bright, clear eye-level monitoring and also permits working with Touch and Drag AF for manually moving the AF area while shooting with the EVF for more intuitive control.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick, automatic image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
  • Wi-Fi also enables livestreaming your content straight from the camera and, when used with EOS Webcam Utility software, the EOS M50 Mark II can function an easy webcam alternative.
  • Built-in pop-up flash provides additional illumination for working in low-light conditions. A hot shoe is also available for working with an optional external flash for greater control.

EOS Webcam Utility

Extending the capabilities of the camera, Canon's EOS Webcam Utility software lets you turn your camera into a versatile webcam by just connecting it to a computer via USB. Compatible with a variety of streaming apps, including ZOOM, YouTube Live, Microsoft Teams, and more, this software also maintains the ability to record internally while livestreaming.

Canon M50 Mark II Reviews

Perfect For My YouTube

By Seth
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-16

A little over a year ago I bought the M50 MKI to use for my YouTube content. I LOVED it. I wanted to add another camera to my setup so I bought this M50 MKII and I love it just as much. It's lightweight (perfect on my gimbal) and easy to use. It's really an awesome little camera and still gives me all the control my picky self wants. I also have a lens adapter so I can use my higher end EF lenses on this body. I'm very very happy with this camera AND my transaction with B&H. In all the years I've been buying gear from B&H i don't recall a single time when I've been let down. I HAVE been let down by Amazon Prime though...several times. Thank you B&H!!!

Excellent Little Camera

By Lorin

This is my first new camera in over a decade and it has been a joy to use. The size and weight make it the perfect grab-and-go option. Image quality with the 15-45mm kit lens is better than expected, even in low light situations, and I look forward to exploring the full range of available lenses. Its safe to say that this camera has reignited my passion for photography. Shoutout to B&H for free expedited shipping!

Excellent Starter

By Cynical Stallion
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-30

I needed a camera that was lightweight and relatively inexpensive: the Canon M50 is both. All Canon cameras are easy to use and this one is no exception. When it comes to a beginner camera, the M50 checks all boxes but one. The lens variety is quite limited because they're mirrorless and small. A quick fix to this issue is to purchase an adaptor, which are priced fairly, so that you can use other normal Canon lenses. The Canon M50 is, no doubt, a great beginner camera. One bad thing is that the limits of this camera are reached far too soon. Not a bad starter nonetheless.

This is one of the best entry level cameras out there. There are limitations but I work around them. I use this camera mainly for live-streaming. It just sits on a tripod. I paired this camera with the sigma 16mm lens and the video quality is great.

Great Camera for Live Streaming

I use this camera for live streaming and the picture quality is good. It sits on a tripod all the time. This is the first time I bought without kit lens.

Will the Smallrig cage that fits my M50 also fit on the M50 mk II?
Asked by: Steven
As of the date/time of this reply, and as the Canon EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Digital Camera was just announced today, we have not had confirmation on if the third-party SmallRig Cage for the Canon EOS M50 will fit the new Canon EOS M50 Mark II. While the cameras appear to be similar in size, we will have to wait either for the camera to be released or for SmallRig to confirm if their current cage will be compatible with the newer camera, or if they will need to create a new cage for the new camera.
