Canon Europe has announced the launch of the EOS M50 Mark II, the successor to the award-winning EOS M50. The launch seeks to quench the global demand for online creative content, as more people are dedicating more time online.

According to reports, in Europe alone, between Q3 2019 and Q2 2020, TikTok saw its monthly usage increase by 93% amongst 16-64 years olds.
