Canon has introduced an update to its entry-level mirrorless model, in the shape of the EOS M50 Mark II. This camera, which has been available outside of the UK for four months, uses essentially identical hardware to its predecessor, with a 24MP APS-C sensor housed inside a small and lightweight SLR-shaped body with a central electronic viewfinder and a fully-articulated touchscreen. It sports a simple design that aims to be approachable for beginners, while providing a sensitivity range of ISO 100-51,200 along with 10 frames per second continuous shooting.

New features are mainly centred around video sharing. The camera supports social media-friendly vertical recording for playback on mobile devices, along with Full HD live streaming to YouTube. It boasts a 3.5mm stereo microphone input, and can also be used as a webcam. The Canon EOS M50 Mark II will be available in either black or white, and is due to go on sale at the end of March for £589.99 body-only, or £40 more than its predecessor’s current street price.
