Canon EOS M50 Mark II Specifications [CR2]

The Canon EOS M50 Mark II has been confirmed and should be announced before the end of 2020. The new EOS M camera promises to build on the feature set of the much loved original EOS M50.

Rumored Canon EOS M50 Mark II Specifications:

  • 32.5mp APS-C CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC X (maybe a new version)
  • DPAF II
  • 14fps
  • 4K @ 60p no crop
  • No IBIS
  • Similar EVF resolution as the EOS R6
  • Single SD card slot

Most of this seems pretty logical. I don’t think Canon would care much about cannibalizing EOS M6 Mark II sales. The lack of IBIS is going to upset some folks, but I’m not at all surprised by the omission if these specifications are legit.

More to come…

10bit 422? would be awesome as a small backup/hiking cam
Tho, once again, more M lenses are needed. And that future doesn't look bright

These specs seem likely. This will be a great little action camera - same specs as M6 mk2 but with a built in viewfinder, plus DPAF 2. I didn’t expect IBIS although Canon needs to incorporate it into the M series soon.

All seems like a good update for a pretty solid and inexpensive camera. If it has autofocus in 4k then it would be reason enough for me to upgrade from the m50. The m50 is a great little camera that pretty much lives on our gimbal, improved autofocus is really the only thing I would love to see, higher specs can be for the more expensive m5, m6 versions.

This sounds reasonable DPAF II is a great addition for the M50 II, but surely this camera can’t be any more money than 799 £ or $

It would be nice to see an M5 II come along soon with IBIS and slightly better spec for say 999 £ or $

What the hell happened to the M5 replacement? Not that I care so much -- it is just curiosity. When I saw the M6, I peddled my entire M5 kit and bought the EOS R. I really wonder where Cannon is headed with this system, it seems like a dead branch on the tree to me.
I've been hoping for an M5 II for a bit too long, I sold my M5 in futile anticipation but now I'm thinking I can live without it. An R5 and 35 f1.8 and 85 f2 seem like a small enough travel package to me so I'll probably sell the rest of my M lenses and adapter soon.

I'm going to engage in pure speculation here, but here goes: The M5-II will have IBIS, and they were waiting for that to be proved.

Patience. Everybody wants all the features and features take power and power takes space and makes heat. Technology is getting there. The R5 processor is pretty amazing when you think it can capture 35 MP images at 30 FPS, then warp transform each one for DLO and shade and sharpen, and then compress them into an MPEG stream, all on about 10 or 12 watts of power. And oh by the way, it is also capturing those images at 70 MP (DPAF) and processing them for AF and running the AF and the IBIS. The digic x undervolted and running at a lower clock speed may well be suitable for an M5 replacement, but it wasn't there a year ago and yields need to be decent before it can be put into a less expensive camera than the R6.

4K@60FPS!? If you thought there were overheating problems with the R5 and R6, just wait for this camera...just a Wild Guess.
