1. Canon EOS M50 Mark II

A versatile mirrorless Canon camera designed for both indoor and outdoor use

  • Sensor: 24.1MP APS-C format
  • Screen: 7.5cm Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • AF system: Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Face and Object Tracking
  • Max video resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160)
  • Lens system: Dedicated small, lightweight EF-M lenses; EF and EF-S lens compatibility with a Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M.
  • Audio: Microphone input
  • Movie self timer mode: 2 seconds, 10 seconds, remote
  • Movies: Vertical movie aspect available


The Canon EOS M50 Mark II has been developed with video – and vlogging in particular – in mind. For starters, the EOS M50 Mark II offers up to 143 autofocus points (depending on the lens in use) with Dual Pixel AF that features face and object tracking. Select a subject from anywhere inside nearly the entire frame, don't drag your finger, you just touch where you want to focus to move the AF point or create a professional pull focus effect.

The EOS M50 Mark II is great at filming in low light. When shooting in 4K, the camera offers sensitivity up to ISO 6400, which means that you can count on clear footage with accurate colours whether you're filming yourself unboxing products in your lamp-lit bedroom at night or walking through the streets of a capital city in the bright midday sun. If you don't need to shoot in 4K, then shooting at HD quality enables you to push that ISO range from 100 all the way up to 25,600, which means you can film in moonlight and people will still be able to see your face!

With the fully-articulating, Vari-Angle screen, you can quickly flip it round and frame yourself on the go for those quick pieces to camera when strolling through your local food market or hiking the Appalachian Trail. The EOS M50 Mark II's stellar AF system places a square over your face to show that you're in focus, and the in-camera Movie Digital IS helps ensure steady footage even when you're shooting handheld.

There is also a stereo microphone built-in, plus a 3.5mm stereo mini jack for attaching an external microphone. And with the Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM kit lens mounted, the EOS M50 Mark II sits nicely in your hand. This means you can film yourself at arm's length without getting tired.

The pocket-sized, out and about Canon vlogging camera

  • Sensor: 20.1MP Stacked CMOS 1.0

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a pocket-size, large-sensor compact camera with a built-in 24-100mm (equivalent) f/1.8-2.8 lens. The combination of light weight and large sensor make it a beast for vloggers and the best camera for YouTube vlogging on the move. You can put it in your pocket and take it with you wherever you go – it'll take whatever life throws your way. The built-in lens is lightning quick, which means you'll never miss a moment, and the flip-up screen makes framing yourself on the go a total breeze.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III gives you a huge focal range with tons of reach. So at a sports event, for example, you can take in the whole scene before zooming right in to the 100mm end of the focal range to capture the action. Then zoom back out, flip up the touchscreen, press the screen and record your reaction!

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III also boasts a superb face detection and tracking mode. This means you can move around freely, throw your hands up in the air in excitement and show your reaction to what's going on, all without worrying that your face will drop out of the zone of sharpness.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III performs superbly in all light conditions, whether it's blazing sunshine or a lamp-lit bedroom, which makes it a perfect out and about camera.

You'll be able to capture incredibly steady movie footage even at full zoom, and even when panning or on the move, thanks to the 5-axis Advanced Dynamic IS to counteract camera shake.

Attach the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M, and the EOS M6 Mark II is also compatible with EF-S and EF lenses, allowing you to achieve smooth, shallow depth of field effects that give your videos a professional edge.
