In order to participate in video conferences or other activities such as live streaming, employees and content creators alike require high-quality cameras, such as those included in the Canon EOS M50 Mark II Manual. Canon, a company that is well-known for producing some of the greatest cameras and lenses available, has recently announced the EOS M50 Mark II after seeing an intriguing opportunity. Mirrorless cameras are designed to be adaptable to meet two distinct requirements.
In the past, Canon had released specialized software that allowed certain of its customers to utilize specific Canon camera series to connect with a computer and transform them into webcams. This was Canon’s attempt to capitalize on the situation and make use of it for its own gain. However, the Canon EOS M50 Mark II was developed from the beginning with two primary purposes in mind: first, for those who are passionate about photography; and second, for those who are interested in live streaming video.
“User-friendly and versatile for both photos and videos, the Canon EOS M50 Mark II allows users to easily create quality 4K photos and videos, in a variety of scenarios,” Udagawa Eiichi, VP of Regional ICP Sales & Marketing for Canon Singapore, said in a release that the camera’s capabilities make it ideal for a wide range of shooting situations.
“Users may instantly submit their recordings on social media sites to share while they are on the road thanks to better live streaming tools and video features,” he said. The Canon EOS M50 Mark II retains all of the same specifications as its predecessor, the EOS M50, including a CMOS sensor with 24.1 megapixels, a DIGIC 8 processor, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Canon has introduced a few new capabilities that will make it simpler to capture videos.
Even though the focusing mechanism has not changed, Canon’s most recent mirrorless cameras already support face and eye tracking, making it possible for the camera to automatically follow the subject and keep focusing on them even while they are moving. When taking images or videos, this function will operate properly. Additionally, the Canon EOS M50 Mark II is capable of recording video in the vertical orientation, which is ideal for creating content for Instagram nowadays.
This camera also has the capability of functioning as a webcam, which is the second functionality that has been added. Use it in one of two different ways: either by attaching it to your computer with a USB cord and running the EOS Webcam Utility program on it or by connecting it to an HDMI output directly. Additionally, it broadcasts live, albeit the broadcasts are exclusively available on YouTube.
The Canon EOS M50 Mark II now has a capability similar to that of a smartphone. This feature comes in the form of a flexible 3-inch vari-angle display and includes a tap to focus straight from the screen. The timer function has also been incorporated into the video mode, which eliminates the need for users who wish to record a vlog to trim the beginning of the recording while simultaneously stretching their hands away from the camera.
The Canon EOS M50 Mark II is anticipated to become available in late November 2020, and it will be priced at USD600 for the body alone, USD700 for the EF-M 15-45MM kit lens, and USD930 for the kit lenses with two lenses (EF-M 15-45mm & EF-M 55-200mm).
In addition to mirrorless cameras, Canon also debuted a new flash kit called the Speedlite EL-1. This kit is designed to illuminate subjects from 14mm to 200mm at a variety of lighting angles. It is possible to adjust the power in a flexible manner throughout 14 levels, going as low as 1/8192. This gadget has a price tag of $1100 and has the capacity to combine 15 units all at once.
