Canon EOS M50 II

The Long Awaited Upgrade to the EOS M50...But Why Bother Canon?

Canon EOS M50 II

The Canon M50 Mark II is the successor to the very popular M50 which was a favourite mirrorless camera for many. However, the updated M50 II is somewhat of a disappointment with very minimal upgrades. Also, the new Canon EOS M50 II won't be available in various regions on launch including Europe, the Middle East and Africa!

Canon EOS M50 II Specs

  • Price (body only) - $599 (£460)
  • 24.1MP CMOS sensor (same as M50)
  • Digic 8 Processor (same as M50)
  • 4K Video (with 1.6x crop)
  • No Dual Pixel Autofocus in 4K
  • Improved Autofocus
  • Eye AF for video and stills
  • Wireless Streaming through YouTube (Zoom Cam)

Panasonic are one of my favourite camera manufacturers and Olympus are the people that got me into photography in the 1980's with the Olympus OM-1. Classic camera!
