Today, Canon has announced the EOS M50 Mark II, a follow up to one of its popular vlogging cameras.
The updated Canon EOS M50 Mark II with its 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 imaging processor brings notable changes such as improved autofocus in stills and video recording, native vertical video support, and wireless YouTube Live streaming. It can also be used as a webcam using the free EOS Webcam Utility or with its clean HDMI output.
Looking at the displays, the EOS M50 Mark II features a 3-inch vari-angle LCD with 1.04-million dots of resolution. New to the Mark II is a start-stop recording button on the display as well as a movie self-timer. The viewfinder is a 2.36-million dot OLED EVF and now users can tap on the screen while looking through the viewfinder to control autofocus.
The EOS M50 Mark II is capable of recording 4K UHD 24p as well as Full HD 120p video. In 4K, it is not a full sensor readout, rather it will be cropped.
Pricing for the body only will be $599. Two kit options will be available, one paired with the EF-M 15-45mm for $699 and the other paired with both the 15-45mm and the EF-M 55-200mm for $929.99. Cameras are expected to start shipping in November 2020.
