Canon M50 Battery Grips
Generic Canon M50 Battery Grip
Hi! What battery grip do you recommend for a Canon M50? It seems that Canon doesn’t make one. Thank you!!
Thanks for asking about a battery grip for your EOS M50 camera. I've got no personal experience with an M50 battery grip, so I only can rely on the reviews and there haven't been enough of them yet.
It's too early for me to evaluate the best grip for the M50 or new M50 Mark II. Battery grips take a while for manufacturers to design and get to market and, as of this post, it's only been a matter of weeks since the M50 II was released in November of 2020.
The original M50 was released in 2018, but perhaps there hasn't been enough of a demand for M50 grips. That may be because one of the features of mirrorless is their compact size and not enough people want to add the bulk and weight of a battery grip.
I'd hold off for now and see if Canon comes up with a battery grip for the M50 Mark II-it will fit your M50-first or one of the better known 3rd party manufacturers, like Vello, Neewer, or Meike comes up with one.
I'm not a big fan of the generic, universal grips that take standard AA batteries that plug into a port on the camera. See the photo above.
I hoe this helps you a bit, Sarah. Feel free to comment back on why you're looking for a battery grip for your Canon EOS M50.
