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 EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens; a wide-to-tele zoom providing a 28.8-240mm equivalent focal length range. Pairing well with the camera, this lens employs an STM motor for quick, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance that benefits both stills as well as video applications. Its Image Stabilizer works in conjunction with the camera's Digital IS for more effective performance, and stabilized panning is also supported to suit working with fast-moving subjects.

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 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
Included with the camera body is the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives with a 28.8-240mm equivalent focal length range. An optimized optical design maintains even illumination and sharpness throughout the zoom range while a maximum magnification ratio of 0.31x benefits working with close-up subjects. An Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and works in conjunction with the camera's Digital IS for more effective shake reduction.

Canon M5 reviews

EOS M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-150mm Lens is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Camera I was Looking For I am coming to this from the opposite direction of most people. Having used a Canon Powershot G15 for a number of years, I wanted something with better image quality, but still small and light weight. I guess you could say that this is my big camera. I have had this for three weeks now and although I'm still learning to use it, I like it a lot. It feels very solid and well made. The size and grip make it easy to hold. Lots of features. Focuses fast. Great Canon picture quality. The EF M 18-150 lens has a nice zoom range and appears to be sharp. Works well for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little gem. I'm switching from the Canon EOS 5D Mk3 for most everyday shooting. This M5 is small light and less obtrusive for walking around. I am using a wrist strap for local strolling and back to the neck strap for mountain outings needing walking stick and folding stool. In either case the M5 performs well. For most work, I use the Viewfinder for final composition and steady view, but sometimes the tilting screen is invaluable, as with small flower macro work in the mountains. I would like a printed manual, and focus peaking but the positives of familiar menu system and Canon lingo were key points in choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the wait. Received the Canon M5 December 16, 2016, it was well worth the wait time for it to arrive. Since receiving the camera I've used it every day. Camera even compact has the the features found on larger Canon models that I own. Easy to carry, light weight, alot of features including bright view finder. Camera dosen't feel plastic and is easy to hold and shoot with. The lens 18-150 mm lens though not an expensive lens so far has given me pretty good quality for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded with features I am still learning all the operations and features of this camera. I wanted a smaller camera to use when traveling, but one that would have the features of a true DSLR camera. The EOS M5 fits these two requirements quite well. The electronic viewfinder and WiFi capabilities are nice additions. The camera and lens image stabilization work very well. I haven't attempted video recording yet, and still have much to learn about my new camera. So I may need to return to this review after some time with the camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I recommend it I bought this camera as a second unit for my 5D. Also I'll use it for video. I have two weeks use in a travel throught China and USA. So far the main positive features are: light and portable, I'll include the lens adapator to use with all my L lenses, but I'didnt check it. Negative; battery short life, little slowly auto focus. Anyway totally recomendable

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure yet This is my second mirrorless camera after years of DSLR and SLR film cameras before them. I first tried a Fuji and whilst I couldn't fault the build quality I found the menus convoluted and complex - couldn't deal with it so I sold it and bought this instead. I like to hike and the full size DSLR cameras are too much weight - I am fast approaching my seventies. Again build quality seems good (though I first bought a used one but had to return it for screen and viewfinder malfunctions). Maybe it is just that the menus are more familiar to me but I have some level of confidence in this camera. I have to admit I don't think it as as good as the Fuji camera which gave much sharper pictures but at least I can use it! So - I think the Fuji is a superior camera but is way too complicated for an old guy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great little camera I have 3 Canon DSLRs and i bought this camera for a specific need. I shoot a lot of music recitals and I need to be very quiet. I am also working in low light. The high speed and mirrorless design help in both of these areas. The controls are different than my other bodies and it has taken a bit to learn what dial does what. The manual that comes in the box is not very helpful in this regard, but the downloadeable version is better. Some reviews have been critical of the small size, but I don't find this an issue. It handles much better than a small compact, or your cell phone. There is a nice leather jacket that you can add that makes it a bit easier to hang on to. I have inadvertently taken a few movies because the button lays right under my thumb when I am carrying the camera. This has not happened since I added the leather jacket as the button is more recessed. I also purchased the EF to EOS-M lens adapter and all of my Canon and non-Canon lenses work perfectly. The camera is different than my SLRs. Not better or worse, just different in a few ways that i am still adapting to. I do not foresee a problem using both types of bodies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for amateurs This camera is great for amateurs, it has a build in time lapse function that allows you to do just that, make a time lapse. Great for taking pictures. Great for video, and yes the only downside is that fact that the flip screen goes down instead of going to the side of the camera.
