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.

Canon M50 Mark II Reviews

Couldn't have asked for a better starting camera

By Krystin
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-18

I have long been interested in photography, and recently took the plunge and got a "real" camera. After a whole bunch of research, I decided on this Canon M50 mkii. I have been so happy with this decision. The interface is easy to use, which helped me build confidence, which has me out shooting more often, which is building confidence. I'm about 6 months in and the camera can still absolutely keep up with my skill. I really couldn't be happier.

A professional photographer recommended this camera rig to me as great starting point in the $1K price range. It was easy to figure out and after taking it on a 16 day trip to national parks out west I was amazed at the beautiful photos I had when I returned home. Love this camera and it will get lots of use.

My Favorite Camera So Far

By Steven
Rated 5 out of 5

This Canon EOS M50 Mark ii is literally the most advanced camera I have ever owned and used. There is a learning curve for me, I find this camera quite challenging, but in a superb way. I have gained more knowledge about photography and videography than I have before. Every day that I use this camera, I am encouraged to study a new function or feature to help me accomplish my next photography or videography gig. I know this camera will take me a while to master, but that is what photography is all about, setting goals and accomplishing them, and I believe this golden camera will be the catalyst in my new career. Pros: This Mark ii allows me to move forward, it gives me the tools I need when I need them. It is a fun camera to operate. Being able to shoot still pictures and videos all in one camera is remarkable. This M50 is great for beginners and intermediate photographers or videographers. It bridges the gap between beginner to advanced. It offers the functions to accommodate my needs quickly, and accurately in a moment's notice, it's confidence inspiring. I find that the extensive menu gives me the power to easily adjust for external variables, i.e., lighting, depth, blur, effects, JPEG, raw etc. It takes out the guess work. With the plethora of functions, menus, manuals, and videos there is no limit to what I can do with it. Having a preview of the images is satisfying, to know how the image is going to turn out once it has been taken, it is a time saver and an assurance builder. The focus functions with the different colors makes focusing a breeze. The autofocus is a lifesaver for people who are visually challenged. The assortment of options available under autofocus. i.e., tracking, zone, point, and spot, makes autofocus simple to operate and accurate. Cons: Need to make the battery and memory card compartment "white" so I can see where to put them in their slots. On-line manual, sometimes tells where the button or function is but doesn't always define what its purpose is. Only have seen this about three times. My solution was to search the web, read an article or watch a video. Occasionally, when not looking, it is hard to find the buttons on the body, i.e., menu, info, M-fn, video on-off buttons. Don't understand why the camera won't shoot a shot. I will be looking through the viewfinder, press the shutter button, then, nothing. Next, I will look at the screen and check the focus, FPS, ISO and they look fine. I press the button and nothing. Then something changes, I don't perceive what, and spontaneously, as if nothing happened, it works again. This doesn't occur every day, just once in a while. It leaves me stumped.

I love this camera!

I wanted a smaller camera to keep with me at all times. I bought the EOS M50 (the original model) in 2018 and absolutely loved it. I paired it with the Canon Mount Adapter EF - EOS M so that I could use EF-S & EF lenses and used it all the time. When the M50 Mark II came out, I didn't know if it be worth the upgrade. I, finally, went for it because the pandemic had me doing Zoom meetings regularly and I was using the M50 as my webcam but I really wanted Clean HDMI. The M50 Mark II was the answer. Little did I know how much the autofocusing had improved on the M50 Mark II over the original model. The Eye AF is remarkably close to the Eye AF I have with my R6. If you're looking for a great little camera and you have EF/EF-S lenses, this is a great addition.

A Photo Camera, Not Videocentric

By Ellen

This camera is light, compact and takes wonderful photos with the ef-m 22mm pancake lens. The kit lens too. Small easy to carry. Fantastic autofocus and wonderful colors right out of camera. That is it's strength. If you just want better image quality than your iPhone or similar 12mp phones then this brings you to double the megapixels. You should know that there are only a few native lenses for this ef-m mount system and they are not making any more than what they have. You can buy an adapter to put on Canon's more expensive lenses but you're better off investing in a system that can grow. Nice to have a viewfinder and it does a great job. Full HD video or 1080p is great quality. However, the 4K is a very cropped and tosses out the great autofocus when selected. Pretty useless. This has clean hdmi (no camera icons on screen) for streaming and recording with apps like StreamYard.

This is the best camera!

Great Beginner camera. My wife has been wanting to get into photography and this is the perfect way to start. Pictures look great right out of the box with the kit lens and automatic mode. She's excited to learn about all the settings in manual mode and get new lenses.

Will the Smallrig cage that fits my M50 also fit on the M50 mk II?

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.
