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 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
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 4 out of 5 by from Great camera Recently purchased and very satisfied with it. I had the M3 and enjoyed that but the addition of the viewfinder and locking mode dial makes the M5 easy to use and helps insure good pictures. Only negative feature is the location of the red movie button. The red movie button is right where I hold the camera and keep hitting it when I do not want to take movies. You have to keep telling yourself to NOT hit the button but due to its location it still accidentally gets touched and filming movies. I hope the next generation of the M5 corrects that. Other than that totally satisfied and it is taking fabulous photos. I also use a Leica and am finding it out performs my Leica. The M5 is small and easy to carry and takes great photos !!!

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 Takes great photos but battery life is short So far I've been happy with my M5. I wanted the 18-150mm kit but it wasn't available so I settled for the 15-45mm kit. The image quality is great, even in low light. With the adapter that came with the kit I can use all my canon lenses but I want more M lenses, especially a nice f1.4 prime. My next purchase will be either 22mm f2 or 28mm macro which looks like a really fun lens. The battery life is much shorter than my dslr. I think I need to find a way to turn off Bluetooth and wifi and it will probably help. Also, the continuous autofocus must be using a lot of power esp. when using my other lenses. The other annoyance is having to turn the lens to its unlocked position every time before using it. Overall though, it's a fun camera to use and I like the canon interface. Can't wait for more M lenses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EOS M5 I am extremely happy with this purchase and would recommend this camera to anyone. I come from the film days and this camera I can use like what I was used to. The Quality of the photos are excellent and the camera can be set to record in JPG and Raw at the same time or any combination of choices. Please read the manual and search the web for other sources of information. The most important is to Shoot, Experiment, Shoot and learn to post process. After reading all the reviews I disagree with some of the comments. One reviewer said that the camera does not show the ISO in the view finder and this is not true as I can see all settings in mine on P,Tv,Av and manual. I reviewer did not like the position of the movie button and in this case I agree so I read the manual and you can change the function of the button to a number of other uses. I changed mine to be able to change the ISO settings. Another reviewer was having trouble finding the electronic manual Drill down Home, Support, Cameras, EOS M5 and then click on the manual. My only complaint is the lack of Lens for this camera. For a beginner to advanced user the choices are good enough. For me I am using the 15-45mm zoom and the 18-150mm zoom and am quite happy with the results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Expected I bought this camera for my partner for Xmas, who wanted a smaller camera than her Rebel T2i. I have played around with it some and it is much better camera than I thought it would be. I recently purchased a 5DIV to replace my 6D, but I also have a FUJI XT1 as my travel, go anywhere camera. I would love to replace the Fuji with this camera and stop supporting two different brands. However, I hesitate to do so because of the EF-M lenses. While the 15-45MM appears to be quite good, I like to do street photography in the evenings. Other than the 22MM F2, there is no EF-M lens capable of low light photography as the glass is not fast enough. If Canon were to offer or announce that it was working on new EF-M lenses, such as a 15MM F2, a 33MM F2, and a 50MM F2, I would be all in. Like Fuji did with its X cameras, Canon needs to provide its customers with an EF-M lens road map. I know I could stick my EF 35MM F2.0 on the M5 with the adaptor, but size is an issue.
