Canon has announced the launch of EOS M50 Mark II mirrorless camera.
The Mark II features an enhanced Eye Detection AF along with Servo AF when shooting still images and Movie Servo AF when shooting video. It has a continuous shooting speed of up to 7.4fps and a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF). The device comes with a reportedly improved AF frame display and speed, preventing any on-screen lag while tracking and a new Tap AF feature along with the Touch & Drag AF. It includes an improved contrast AF algorithm, allowing AF stability and reduced wobbling during 4K movies shooting with EF-M lenses. It supports movie digital zoom (approx. 3-10x) at the central part of the screen during shooting, which can be combined with optical zoom on a zoom lens to achieve magnified shooting with up-close shots.
Canon has included an “add rotate info” option to enable automatic vertical playback on smart devices, PCs and compatible social media. It comes with the option to live-stream directly to YouTube, from the device itself, by connecting to Wi-Fi without using a streaming unit. The device also supports Canon’s new ‘image.canon’ cloud platform and is equipped with a Vari-angle LCD monitor with features such as touch screen recording, movie self-timer and an external microphone jack.
The sales for the EOS M50 Mark II will commence from December, 2020 and it will be priced at INR 58,995.
