2020 is Canon’s yr.
And now it appears like we’ll be seeing one other spectacular mirrorless mannequin earlier than the yr is out, this time as an addition to Canon’s APS-C mirrorless arsenal:
The EOS M50 Mark II, the successor to the implausible EOS M50.
Whereas the EOS M50 Mark II’s launch isn’t but official, digicam product listings have prompted Canon Rumors to declare that the new mirrorless body is “confirmed.”
And according to Canon Rumors, the EOS M50 Mark II will embody a 32.5 MP sensor (up from 24 MP on the EOS M50), in addition to improved autofocus, 14 frames-per-second steady taking pictures (in comparison with 10 fps on the EOS M50), 4K/60p capabilities and not using a crop, one SD card slot, and a 3.69M-dot digital viewfinder (up from the two.36M-dot EVF on the EOS M50). You may as well anticipate compatibility (by way of an adapter) with Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses, although Canon additionally presents an honest vary of EF-M glass.
In different phrases, the EOS M50 Mark II can be spectacular certainly. Photographers will have the ability to harness the element of a 30+ megapixel sensor whereas sustaining the pace of an motion digicam. And whereas we don’t know if the 14 fps specification solely applies when utilizing AF-S autofocus, worst-case state of affairs places the EOS M50 Mark II at round 10 fps when set to AF-C, which isn’t unhealthy in any respect for severe action shooters.
Personally, I’m most trying ahead to the digital viewfinder. I discover EVFs beneath 3.69M-dot robust to make use of, and it’s onerous to overstate the worth of digital viewfinder. In any case, it’s what defines your complete taking pictures expertise, particularly in the event you’re the kind that shoots continuously via the viewfinder moderately than working with Dwell View on the rear LCD.
Total, the EOS M50 Mark II seems to be one thing of an all-around digicam for newbies and intermediate photographers (whereas nonetheless completely able to professional-quality photographs). And the 4K/60p video is a pleasant addition for hybrid shooters and vloggers, particularly given the constraints of the EOS M50’s 4K/24p video (it comes with a irritating 1.7x crop).
So in the event you’re searching for a robust digicam that gives a variety of decision, spectacular pace, and a (seemingly) cheap price ticket, then preserve an eye fixed out for the official EOS M50 Mark II announcement over the following few months.
Now over to you:
