Canon has updated the EOS M50 with a Mark II model. This new camera has a 24.1MP APS-C sensor with the OEM's DIGIC 8 image processor. It also has on-board Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which helps with its new ability to livestream directly to YouTube wirelessly. It should be available in late November 2020 as a single unit or bundled with compatible EF lenses.

Canon has announced the second-gen EOS M50 interchangeable-lens camera. Its maker asserts that it packs the best features of its immediate predecessors, along with attractive new features for content-creators and vloggers. Chief among these are vertical video and access to Wireless YouTube Live streaming, albeit with certain caveats (for example, the channel in question must have at least 1000 subscribers).

The EOS M50 Mark II is rated for up to 24p 4K UHD recording. It also has a new vari-angle LCD touchscreen, which supports new buttons that start a recording and act as a movie self-timer. It can also respond to taps that auto-focus on a subject while simultaneously using the EVF, thus keeping a subject ideally in shot.

The Canon EOS M50 Mark II will become available in late November 2020, and will sell for around US$599.99. That estimated price is for the body only, however, although it will also be available in bundles with the EF-M 15-45mm lens for $699.99 or with that lens and the EF-M55-200mm double zoom lens for $929.99.
