Canon refreshes its mirrorless camera line with the EOS M50 Mark II, which gets vlogging-centric features for upgrades.
First of these is the addition of eye tracking autofocus for stills and videos. The camera’s existing Dual Pixel autofocus system will be able to track and lock focus on subjects more accurately than the previous model. Also, users can track a subject with a tap on the screen while using the electronic viewfinder.
Another upgrade is the option to record vertical videos. This will make clips easier to upload on social media apps like Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok. There’s also a video record button and self timer for videos on the camera. User can also stream to YouTube Live over a smartphone internet connection.
This mirrorless camera can also operate as a webcam with the free EOS Webcam Utility. Users can seamlessly stream videos to YouTube with the new function.
The EOS M50 Mark II has a 24.1MP CMOS sensor with ISO 100-25600. It uses a DIGIC 8 image processor.
It’s priced at $600 (~P29,000) for body only and $700 (~P34,000) for an included EF-M 15-45mm lens kit.
