Canon M5 Overview

  • 1Description

Adept in both stills and video arenas, the EOS M5 from Canon is a versatile mirrorless camera featuring a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor. Combined, these technologies afford a wide sensitivity range, from ISO 100-25600, along with quick performance for up to 9 fps continuous shooting and Full HD 1080p/60 video recording. The sensor's design also provides Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which offers quick and accurate phase-detection autofocus for multimedia use. This focusing system is particularly well-suited to subject tracking, and pairs with Digital IS 5-axis image stabilization for steadier, shake-free video recording.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, the camera's design is equally versatile due to the inclusion of both a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder along with a large 3.2" 1.62m-dot LCD tilting touchscreen. The touchscreen design enables Touch and Drag AF for intuitive focusing point control, and an array of additional physical dials and control buttons provide an efficient means for settings changes. Additionally, the camera sports built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.

Included with the camera body is the standard zoom EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which provides a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range. The STM stepping motor delivers quick, quiet autofocus performance and the Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for 3.5 stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. The lens' optical design also incorporates a trio of aspherical elements to control chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for sharper, clearer image quality.

24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor
Both a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible ISO 100-25600 range suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity. The processor also contributes to a fast 7 fps continuous shooting rate, which can be quickened to 9 fps with AF lock, for photographing fast-moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported in 60 and 50 fps frame rates. Additionally, the processor affords a fast camera startup time and short interval times between each frame for a more intuitive and efficient shooting process.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
Digital IS
Supporting video applications, Digital IS with 5-axis image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This benefits recording while walking or moving, and can also be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for more effective overall stabilization.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • A high-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder affords a bright, clear means for natural eye-level viewing to suit working in bright conditions.
  • Large 3.2" 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a tilting design (85° up, 180° down) to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Touch and Drag AF lets you manually move the AF frame while shooting for more precise control.
  • Physical controls allow for intuitive settings adjustments, and include a front dial, quick control dial, dial function button, and exposure compensation dial. Each of these can be customized to adjust specific functions for more personalized control.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
Included with the camera body is the versatile standard zoom EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which provides a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range. Three aspherical elements help to control chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range and an optimized lens placement works to reduce flare and ghosting. An Optical Image Stabilizer works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops for sharper handheld shooting and an STM stepping motor provides fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance.

Canon M5 Reviews

EOS M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm Lens is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little camera Love this little camera. After buying my 1DX Mark II, I was wanting something a little smaller for every day use, and my other two bodies were a 5D Mark III and 7D Mark II, both with battery grips. I sold the 5D Mark III, and with the proceeds from that, I bought the M5. It is perfect in all regards for what I intend on using it for, and with the 22mm f2 lens, I have gotten some pretty dang good photos from it! I got the 15-45 kit lens, just as a toss around lens. The 22mm f2 will stay mounted to my camera for probably 99% of the time, until some new primes get released for the EF-M line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it does show exposure settings in the viewfinder. To correct an earlier review that many of you may use to judge this camera (because it pops up as the most popular negative review on this site) the M5 does show all of the exposure settings in the viewfinder, both in the eye-level window and on the LCD screen on the back. ?It shows ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and exposure compensation, regardless of the 'INFO' mode you've got selected. ?You can even have a histogram, if you want. ?The trick is to half-press the shutter release, and all the relevant info appears. ?The half-press activates the metering system, which makes the exposure determination at that time. ?Keeping the shutter button half-pressed will hold those settings in case you want to reframe before shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from deffenetly big defference .... i had M1,M2, M3 .... recomand I'm a videographer I start from M1 and that was amazing because the most big difference btwn all cameras is my collection of ef efs lenses. i had M2 , M3 and at the same time a used canon 6D , 70D ..... and deffently the best focus for video was and is in canon ..... now i have 80D and the amezing M5..... this little camera is maybe like young brother of 80D but it have focus peaking, it have digital VF , it have skiils on touching focus on display that 80D don't have and its easy to work on flycam, with very nice and sharp 15-45 mm efM lens....last.... if before M1,2,3 was not so good in photo ..... now we have a great camera for photo and video production . enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a specific purpose I give it 5 stars because it suits my particular purposes very well. ?I wanted a travel camera with good image quality, easily accessed controls, sensible ergonomics, and wide & long capabilities, in a small and light package. ?You'll find better performance in a full size DSLR, better and faster lenses on a Fuji X series, a wider lens selection on just about any other line, and a smaller and lighter package on a compact, MFT or smartphone. ?In fact, for just about any single criteria you choose, there will be a better alternative elsewhere. ?But when I considered all the criteria together, the M5 with the 15-45 kit lens hit the sweet spot for my purposes, and will be even better after I include a couple more lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Correction Upon verification, by pressing the shutter half way, the camera displays, in the viewfinder, the speed, aperture and ISO. The following is incorrect: The EOS M5 would be a great camera if not for a small number of serious problems. The most severe problems are: 1) The viewfinder does not show the shutter speed in AV mode. 2) The viewfinder does not show the f-stop in Tv mode. 3) The viewfinder does not show the ISO when ISO is set to Auto in Av, Tv or Manual mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I love this little thing. It packs so much into a nicely designed, ergonomic mirrorless camera. Some people complain about it feeling cheap but I don't think so. Everything feels compact and solid. I bought the canon EOS M to EF-s lens adapater so I can attach my better lenses to this and voila! It's like one step up from the canon 80d. The autofocus on this thing is outstanding. Nothing like I've seen before. Pictures always come out clear and the low-light pictures have zero grain. If you're looking for a pro camera but on a tight budget, I recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great camera I needed a smaller camera with most of the features of the larger DSLRs. The M5 has met all of my expectations and then some. It's small enough and light enough that I can easily mount it on my telescope and having the wired remote feature makes it easy to use in these applications. The built in electronic view finder makes for a much smaller and easy to carry package rather than the add on EVF of the M3. The 15-45mm lens is very fast focusing and the the image stabilizer works well in low light. All in all, a great camera and lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon's best mirrorless camera yet. This is the third mirrorless camera I have owned. I first bought a Nikon N1 V1 which I used for four years. A year ago I traded that in on a Canon EOS M3 and now I just bought the M5. I primarily use mirrorless camera for travel and street photography. I have two full size sensor Canon DSLR's and a pretty good range of EF lenses. However, on the go nothing beats the small size and ease of use of the mirrorless cameras. The Nikon's main strength was its fast autofocus and burst shooting. The small 10MP sensor was a bit noisy at high ISO's, but if you knew how to shoot with it you got reasonable results. I became interested in the Canon mirrorless cameras because I have a large number of EF lenses and they can me adapted to the M series cameras. So I bought the M3. I used it in Alaska, New Orleans, Portugal, Spain and France as well as my go to carry around camera for a year. It produced excellent images. The difference in noise level compared to the Nikon was astounding. However, the M3's slow autofocus and burst shooting were disappointing. Also, the add on view finder was awkward and meant that you couldn't use the hot shoe. When I saw the M5 I decided to give it a try. It seemed to offer all of the features that were lacking in the M3. The built in viewfinder and the up to 9 FPS burst shooting are very good. With full AI Servo autofocus it will do 7 FPS. The sensor has low noise at reasonable ISO's. I've tried it at 25,600 and it works, but the noise level is limiting. Autofocus is greatly improved. Dual pixel sensor and beefed up processor seem to work very well. There has been some criticism of this camera's video capabilities. It does not shoot 4K. Big deal. I never (or rarely) shoot video. I think Canon has made a decision to divide their offerings between still cameras and video cameras. I think photographers should make that distinction too. I'm not a videographer, I am a photographer. In any case, although I can edit 4K, I can't watch it. Ok, so how does it shoot? I have attached an image shot with the EF-M 28mm macro lens. This is one of my first tries with macro photography. The white flowers are less than 3/4 inch across. I was impressed with the sharpness and very shallow depth of field. The controls are easier to use than the M3. In particular there is a real on-off switch rather than a push button. You know that the camera is on. There are dials to easily change settings although you can go through menus too. On caveat about using EF lenses. Although everything works smoothly, the tail wags the dog. You end up with a very compact camera with a large heavy lens attached. Even though I have the adapter, I've yet to use it in the field. The one thing that the system is lacking as of now is a good fast prime lens. The best you can do is the 22mm f2 pancake lens. It's a great lens, but it would be nice to have a 50mm equivalent or an 85mm equivalent at f1.8 or better. Maybe in the near future. Finally, if you are looking for mirrorless camera to take in the field with a growing selection lenses you should check out the M5.
