Looking to up your Instagram Stories game? Then Canon’s latest model might be the one for you. The Canon EOS M50 Mark II (£589.99) is designed to make it easier and faster to shoot and upload top-notch content that’ll make you the envy of your "influencer" pals. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth means you can share your shenanigans directly to a social platform of your of choosing, whether that’s Insta, Twitter or Twitch. It can also produce vertical videos you can post direct to social - ideal for when you’ve perfected your latest lockdown Tik-Tok dance moves. What’s more, clean HDMI output means you can livestream your twattery directly to YouTube, without the timestamp or any of the other on-screen gubbins you might have on your display. Canon’s new mirrorless model also lets you record in 4K and there’s a 3.5mm input for hooking up a proper mic so that you don’t sound like you’re in a cupboard. As the name suggests, the new model is the successor to Canon’s popular EOS M50 and also packs a 24.1MP APS-C sensor. The EOS M50 Mark II will be available from the end of March 2021 and can be pre-ordered now.
