Canon Releases EOS M50 Mark II With Better Autofocus Performance

Canon has just announced a new APS-C mirrorless camera – the EOS M50 Mark II. The new camera shares many features with the older model, but there are a couple of improvements as well.

The M50 Mark II has the same 24MP sensor and identical DIGIC 8 image processor, but the Dual Pixel AF system has been improved. The autofocus can now track eyes both in stills and videos. This camera has been very popular among YouTubers and vloggers, and now it allows users to capture vertical video (great for Instagram), as well as stream directly to YouTube Live over a smartphone internet connection.

When it comes to video, the camera is pretty much identical to the M50. It can record 4K videos at up to 24 fps, 1080p at up to 60 fps and 720p at up to 120 fps. Unfortunately, there is still a huge crop (nearly 1.6x) when shooting 4K videos and the Dual Pixel AF works only in 1080p.

Canon EOS M50 Mark II is going to be available in November. It will retail for $599 for the body and $699 when paired with the kit lens (15-35mm f/3.5-5.6). If you choose the option with two kit lenses (15-45mm and 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3), the price goes up to $929.
