Canon M50 Mark ii Review

It has been 12 months since I made the decision to pre-order my Canon m50 Mark ii. At first, I really liked this camera, but now, I LOVE it and I want to tell you why. If you are in the market for a new camera for YouTube videos this is for you! Here is my honest review and why this may be the perfect camera for you.

First of all, lets’ start with the size and weight. The Canon m50 Mark ii is small and lightweight, which makes it easy to carry around or slip into your bag. This mirrorless camera also has all the expected functions for a camera these days as well. You have manual shooting settings, face detection, and a fully-articulating touch screen! One of the best parts is that the touch screen has a record button directly on it. And with audio levels on the screen as well, you always know if your mic is working properly! There is also a wifi button to transfer footage from the camera to your computer, phone, or iPad really easily.

What more could you ask for in an affordable camera that can make quick and easy YouTube videos? Especially a camera that will make you look legit in your videos without a film crew or $4000 worth of camera gear! As long as you’re shooting 1080p videos, don’t need 4k, and you’re not using it for professional photography, this camera is great for you.

If you are recording vertical content for TikTok, Reels, or Shorts, you don’t need to rotate the video when you are editing it. Just have your camera face vertical as you’re recording and the video file will save vertically. You can use the Canon M50 Mark ii for Zoom calls and Livestreams pretty easily as well. Unlike the original m50, the Mark ii has clean HDMI output. Once you switch from using a grainy webcam to using a real camera… you will never go back!

Sigma 16mm Lens

Now if you’re new here, you may not know that I absolutely LOVE this Sigma lens for the Canon m50 Mark ii. The Sigma lens is very affordable as far as lenses go, and it dramatically changes the way your videos look especially when you are talking directly to a camera and you are recording your video in a small space. It makes your small space look very spacious, and it gives a nice blurry background, which is common in many YouTube videos.

Now if you're new here, you may not know that I absolutely LOVE the Sigma 16mm lens for the Canon m50 Mark ii. It comes in around $400. It really changes the way your videos look especially when you are talking directly to a camera and you are recording your video in a small space.  It makes your small space look very spacious, and it gives a nice blurry background, which is common in many YouTube videos.
