Canon reveals EOS M50 Mark II

Posted on Feb 25, 2021

A new Mark II version of the Canon EOS M50 has landed, geared firmly towards content creation. It offers a few updates over its predecessor, though with many common features in terms of internal specs.

Built around a 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor, the camera offers quality stills up to 10fps and 4K video. The latter can be streamed directly over HDMI and a USB output is also available. Elsewhere on the connectivity front, a 3.5mm jack is featured – the standard of many enthusiast and professional microphones – and the M50 Mark II’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities have been enhanced. Canon assures control from a mobile device, along with the direct upload of media to channels, is easier than ever before. This includes an automatic video transcoding feature for use across various platforms.

Other key features for a content creation audience include Canon’s Intelligent Auto modes, eye detection autofocus and AF down to -4EV, a vari-angle touchscreen and compatibility with native EF-M lenses or EF lenses with an adapter.

At a fairly compact 116.3×88.1×58.7mm (lxhxd) and 387g in weight, it’s a compact option that’s highly suitable for carrying around in daily life or placing within a
space-efficient streaming set-up.

The Canon EOS M50 Mark II is available for pre-order now at a price of £589.99, shipping from the end of March 2021. For more information, please visit the Canon website.
