The camera comes with relatively minor updates to the popular original version, which is mostly aimed at creative people.
The biggest change is the upgraded dual-pixel autofocus system that now allows continuous eye tracking in video, rather than some of the static modes as before.
This helps make things easier when giving interviews or video bloggers using the camera, as the camera can keep your subject in focus on its own.
The EOS M50 Mark II can also capture portrait videos, which you can broadcast directly to YouTube using smartphone connection.
For vloggers, the flip-up, 3-inch touch screen offers a “tap to record” button, along with a “tap to focus” button and a built-in movie self-timer for a better vlogging experience.
In terms of photography, the EOS M50 Mark II now has an electronic shutter option, and there is also support for a webcam with Canon’s EOS Webcam Utility software.
The other features remain the same, as you can still shoot 4K videos with only contrast-detection AF support.
Camera owners can access the image.canon cloud service to improve workflow.
The video works in 1080p with dual pixel autofocus, and the camera shoots slow-motion videos at 120 frames per second.
Canon said: This camera paves the way for photography and videography enthusiasts to experience a lightweight interchangeable lens camera with many similar features to professional full-frame cameras.
The camera does not include a headphone port for audio monitoring, and it comes with a microUSB port instead of (USB-C).
The EOS M50 Mark II will arrive in late November 2020 for $ 599 (body only), or $ 699 for a camera with lens.
