There are some solid rumors floating around lately according to which Canon is preparing to release the EOS M50 Mark II pretty soon. The successor of the already extremely popular APS-C mirrorless camera should feature a 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a new DIGIC X processor, Version II of Canon’s Dual Pixel AF alongside a maximum continuous shooting speed of 14fps.
What’s more impressive, the newcomer should bring 4K/60p no-crop video recording and similar EVF resolution to the full-frame EOS R6 (3.69M dots). According to the latest Canon Rumors report, though, the EOS M50 II will not have in-body image stabilization (IBIS) or dual card slots.
Back in February 2018 when it was initially announced, the EOS M50 was Canon’s first 4K mirrorless camera capable of shooting UHD 4K video at 24fps. It was also the first mirrorless camera that the company has released with an articulated touch screen enabling touch and drag focus.
More than two years and a half later, Canon are about to deliver another extremely attractive option for video shooters who are just starting out and want to get a more than capable entry-level 4K camera under $1K (if all these rumors turn out to be true).
Rumored Canon EOS M50 Mark II Specs:
- 32.5mp APS-C CMOS sensor
- DIGIC X (maybe a new version)
- DPAF II
- 4K @ 60p no crop
- No IBIS
- Similar EVF resolution as the EOS R6
- Single SD card slot
Of course, as with any other piece of information that is not officially confirmed, I encourage you to take this rumor with a pinch of salt.
Yet, the fact that similar reports are usually a pretty solid indicator for an upcoming camera announcement makes me think that Canon EOS M50 Mark II is indeed just around the corner. I’m sure we all will find out sooner rather than later, so stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
