Canon’s EOS M50 Mark II mirrorless camera is aimed at creators

Canon has unveiled the 24-megapixel EOS M50 Mark II with relatively minor updates to the popular original aimed mostly at creators. The biggest change is an upgraded Dual Pixel autofocus system that now allows for continuous eye-tracking in video, rather than in just some still modes as before. That will make it more practical for interviews or vlogging (albeit in HD only and not 4K) as the camera can keep your subject in focus by itself.

It can also capture vertical video that you can stream on YouTube live using a smartphone connection. And for vloggers, the flip-out display offers a tap-to-record button, along with tap-to-focus and a movie self timer. On the photo side, the EOS M50 II now has an electronic shutter option. Topping off the new options is webcam support with Canon’s EOS utility software.

Nikon

It’s no secret that smartphones have had a serious impact on digital camera sales in recent years; fewer people feel the same imperative to own compact cameras and digital SLRs as they once did. So camera makers are looking for ways to entice you to jump back into the deep end of the photography pool. Earlier this year Nikon unveiled its Z5, a great-looking entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera at a pretty attractive price. But how to get you to buy one? How about if you could try it risk-free for a month? Done and done. For a limited time, if you buy a Nikon Z5, you can try it at home for 30 days essentially for free — because if you aren’t happy with it, you can return it for a full refund.

You can now use a Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera as a webcam on Mac

Nikon has just launched an initial beta of its Webcam Utility software for macOS users, bringing the field of view and clarity of their DSLR and mirrorless cameras to your FaceTime and Zoom calls.

The new Webcam Utility for Mac follows the similar beta launched for Windows users in August. It supports Nikon’s DSLR cameras as well as its Z line of mirrorless cameras. That includes the just-launched — and reviewed — Nikon Z5.

During the work-from-home boom, users have been flocking to video conferencing software such as Zoom but were limited on the quality of their video meetings, in part, by their Mac’s integrated cameras. By utilizing the larger sensors and glass of a dedicated camera, users are able to get a much sharper image, a higher resolution image, and an increased depth of field.

Nikon isn’t the only one releasing a webcam utility for Mac users. Canon, Olympus,
