Canon brings EOS M50 Mark II to make videos & still view dynamic
Canon unveiled EOS M50 Mark II mirrorless camera, designed for photography enthusiasts who are also keen to do videos and live streams. Whether you are a parent looking to capture fleeting moments of your child’s milestones; a frequent traveller looking for a compact and fuss-free shooting experience; or someone hoping to start your own YouTube channel; the EOS M50 Mark II is designed to help create captivating photos and videos with ease.
The EOS M50 Mark II has a continuous shooting speed of up to 7.4fps with servo AF so users can capture multiple shots of moving subjects such as children or pets. Its built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF) makes for easy viewing even when shooting in the bright outdoors.
Eye detection AF is also available with Servo AF when shooting still images and Movie Servo AF when shooting video, so you will always be able to capture your subject’s natural expressions even when they are in motion.
Fast and stable AF is essential when it comes to shooting videos of moving subjects. On the EOS M50 Mark II, Eye Detection AF works with Movie Servo AF shooting. By simply keeping the subject within the frame while shooting, it will track the subject smoothly. Users can thus focus on the composition of the video while leaving the tracking of the subject to the camera.
With an improved contrast AF algorithm, users can also expect enhanced AF stability during 4K movies shooting with EF-M lenses. This will enable smooth movie recording, with reduced wobbling. EOS M50 Mark II 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.
For video bloggers, they could even live-stream directly to YouTube directly from EOS M50 Mark II by connecting to Wi-Fi without using a streaming unit.
The EOS M50 Mark II also supports the Canon’s new image. canon cloud platform and registered users of the platform can upload, store, download and transfer images smoothly between various devices.
