The following is a full comparison of the Canon M50 and Canon M50 II, both of which are Canon’s entry-level mirrorless digital cameras. The M50 (24MP) and M50 II (24MP) have extremely similar image resolution and use the same identical sensor size (APS-C).
The M50 was released three years before the M50 II, which is a significant technological gap. Both of these cameras have the same body design (SLR-style mirrorless).
Before we get into a more in-depth comparison, here’s a quick rundown of how the M50 compares to the M50 II in terms of mobility, imaging, features, and overall score.
Physical Comparison: Canon M50 vs. Canon M50 Mark II
You should consider the weight and size of your camera if you want to travel with it regularly. The Canon M50 has exterior dimensions of 116mm x 88mm x 59mm (4.6″ x 3.5″ x 2.3″) and weighs 390 grams (0.86 lbs), whereas the Canon M50 II has dimensions of 116mm x 88mm x 59mm (4.6″ x 3.5″ x 2.3″) and weighs 387 grams (0.86 lbs) (0.85 lbs).
Keep in mind that the weight of an ILC varies depending on the lens you’re using. The front view scale comparison of the M50 and the M50 II is shown below.
The M50 and M50 II have a portability rating of 79 and 79, respectively, when considering size and weight.
Sensor Comparison: Canon M50 versus Canon M50 Mark II
In general, simply glancing at specs might make it difficult to imagine the difference between sensor sizes. The image below should help you understand the sensor readings of the M50 and M50 II better.
Clearly, both of these cameras have the same identical sensor size and resolution, and you can expect equal image quality, but you should take the age of the items into mind. When it comes to sensor technology, the older M50 will be left behind.
