Canon launches the EOS M50 Mark II Camera targeting social media creators

In what Canon describes as a response to the growing demand for high-quality camera equipment to meet the evolving requirements of today’s content creators, the company has today announced the EOS M50 Mark II, a successor to the very popular EOS M50 – a camera we also use on our YouTube channel.

Canon says that the global appetite for creating, sharing and watching content on Instagram, YouTube and Twitch shows no sign of slowing down – with people dedicating more time exploring hobbies and learning new skills. In Europe alone, between Q3 2019 and Q2 2020, TikTok saw its monthly usage increase by 93 per cent amongst 16-64 years olds.

A small, yet powerful mirrorless camera, the EOS M50 Mark II makes the entire process from shooting to uploading content easier than ever before. Capable of capturing landscape and vertical 4K video or livestreaming Full HD directly to YouTube, this camera enables creators to take their content to the next level. With a 3.5mm microphone input, clean HDMI and USB output, this camera has all the inputs and outputs a content creator could need. Its compact body, vari-angle touchscreen and compatibility with a range of Canon lenses means users have complete creative freedom – whether they are capturing beautifully framed ‘to camera’ pieces or are vlogging on the go.

Canon explains that with the built-in microphone import, this portable camera can be easily carried around or even mounted onto a gimbal – giving users flexibility. Whether in front of the camera or behind it, the vari-angle touch screen and responsive electronic viewfinder (EVF) also mean users can frame the shot in any situation.

With over 300,000 stories posted to Instagram every minute, the key to making content stand out is quality. The EOS M50 Mark II allows content creators to use its EF-M lens range and EF lenses with a mount adaptor, which includes an ultra-wide lens, perfect for vlogging or a lens with a shallow depth of field to get those selfies just right.

The camera’s speed, the 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor, Intelligent Auto modes and Eye Detection also gives content creators the edge when it comes to photography – making it possible to take sharp action shots that catch social media scrollers’ eyes.

Amine Djouahra, Sales and Marketing Director at Canon Central and North Africa added: “Perfect for vloggers, bloggers and influencers, the Canon EOS M50 Mark II is the ideal choice for content creators requiring stunning image quality, smart features and to live stream to an on-line audience in real-time.”

The Canon EOS M50 Mark II will be available from the end of April 2021.
