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.

The camera is akin to a cross between Canon’s standard EOS cameras and a cinema camera, and the addition of an RF mount allows it to take advantage of the same range of lenses offered for its mirrorless devices. As with other cameras in the Cinema line, it’s primarily aimed at high-performance video recording and filmmaking.
In contrast to the typically heavy cinema cameras, the EOS C70 provides similar performance in a more compact and lighter-weight form factor. It weighs just over 2.5 pounds and is actually smaller than DSLRs like the EOS 1D X Mark III.
