Easy to keep on hand for virtually every situation, it's also fast enough to capture the moment thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which quickly and accurately locks onto your subject. A high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a 3.2-inch tilt-type LCD monitor offer versatility in lining up the angle you want. Equipped with these impressive features and a whole lot more, the EOS M5 can be ideal for advanced photographers, enthusiasts and anyone looking to capture and save the best moments from everyday life and beyond.
24.2 Megapixel Sensor
The EOS M5 camera features a 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing large image and movie files. At 24.2 Megapixels, the EOS M5’s sensor delivers images suitable for enlargements with sufficient resolution for significant trimming. Whether making poster-sized prints, zooming in on a particular detail or making Full HD movies, the EOS M5’s sensor is primed to deliver. An ISO range of 100–25600 means images can be captured with low noise and high detail, even in dimly lit situations.
Fast and Smooth Dual Pixel AF
When the action is happening fast, you and your camera have to be ready to capture that unforgettable photo – and with the EOS M5 camera, there’s virtually no wait for it to focus, even in low light. Inside, its Dual Pixel CMOS AF system offers fast and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. This advanced Canon technology uses 24.2 million sensors to quickly determine how far away an object is and therefore where the lens should focus, and is available while using the electronic viewfinder and when using Live View on the rear screen. Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure your images are sharp, while keeping to a minimum the time it takes to lock focus onto your subject, and smoothly maintaining focus where you want it.
Continuous Shooting at Up to 7.0 fps
To help you get multiple images of a fast-moving subject and ensure you capture the moment you want, the EOS M5 camera is capable of taking up to 7.0 frames per second (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock). Whether you’re capturing an athlete making a goal or a toddler running clumsily after bubbles, the EOS M5 can take the shot and stay locked on with its new DIGIC 7 Image Processor.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor
The DIGIC 7 Image Processor’s enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help keep subjects in focus, while helping to ensure each image has a high level of sharpness and minimum picture noise. Whether you’re capturing a fast-moving athlete or a feisty puppy, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor in the EOS M5 camera can stay locked on throughout the action. Improved face tracking helps keep your friend or family member the subject of the photo. Even in extreme cases, like in low saturation or low-light dusk, dawn or darkened interior moments, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps keep what you’re photographing in focus. It also features the new Dual Sensing IS, which uses data from the image itself to help minimize the blur caused by camera shake and body movement. This results in clear, sharp pictures even at slow shutter speeds. All this is in addition to upgraded detail and noise reduction abilities, especially in low light with high ISO settings. Powerful all around, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and lifelike with minimal unwanted noise or grain.
Full HD 60p
Whether you’re creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the EOS M5 camera can catch them in the quality they deserve. Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded at 60 fps with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. Video is smooth and richly detailed even when played back on a large-screen HDTV via the camera’s HDMI output. The MP4 format’s small file size lets you fit more on a single memory card, and makes downloading and sharing quick and easy. Manual movie mode is also available: adjust settings and even select focus points by using the touch panel LCD screen. You can do this even while looking through the viewfinder to express your vision your way however you shoot – all from a powerful camera that is easily portable.
Digital IS with 5-axis Image Stabilization
Sometimes you need to move the camera to create the video you want, whether you’re panning over a gorgeous scenic vista or chasing after an excited puppy. Even when you hold the camera as steady as you can, some unintentional shaking is possible. To counter this, the EOS M5 camera features 5-axis Digital Image Stabilization when recording video. Blur due to movement in the horizontal and vertical, yaw and pitch (tilting) and roll directions are all digitally minimized in-camera. For more stabilization, when a combination IS-compatible lens is attached, the EOS M5 can use the lens’s Optical IS in conjunction with Digital IS for even less chance of blur due to shaking. These help ensure the videos you record are as sharp as possible.
Built-in High-resolution EVF
In certain situations, like a bright sunny day, a viewfinder is preferable to a screen. The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder on the EOS M5 camera features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you’re capturing. Its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology offers high-contrast, high-colour images that can help properly display the scene you want to capture. Touch and Drag AF lets you use the rear screen as a touchpad while you’re using the viewfinder, so you can choose what you want the camera to focus on with just a tap of your finger and without moving the camera away from your face.
Intuitive Touch Screen 3.2 Tilt-type LCD Monitor
The EOS M5 camera has a large, high-resolution, 3.2" LCD monitor that tilts up 85° and down 180°, ideal for composing pictures at high and low angles with ease. Its touch screen is designed to be fast and easy to use for many operations, allowing accessible AF selection right on the panel.
Easily Customize Functions
Spending time scrolling through menus and settings can distract you from enjoying the moment, or potentially missing a candid or action-filled shot. The EOS M5 camera features multiple customizable dials to help you keep the adjustments you want, right at your fingertips. The Main Dial is around the shutter, so you barely have to move your finger to change certain settings. The Quick Control Dial and Dial Function button on top lets you adjust settings like ISO speed quickly with your thumb. The handy Exposure Compensation Dial gives you fast access to exposure, so you can brighten shadows or bring down the highlights without having to dive through menus.
Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC
The EOS M5 camera is designed to make Wi-Fi® connections* fast and easy. It can exchange data with other Wi-Fi compatible Canon cameras, connect directly to Canon’s Connect Station CS100 device, upload directly to various web services like CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, Facebook and YouTube, and even play back images and movies on DLNA-compatible digital electronics.
With its built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability, the EOS M5 camera connects directly to NFC-compliant Android devices by simply touching the NFC icon located on the camera to the device.
With the Canon Camera Connect app installed, the EOS M5 camera connects to and can be controlled by your compatible smartphone or tablet for simple remote shooting. Plus, it can also connect and print directly to IP-compatible printers.
Equipped with Bluetooth
Thanks to Bluetooth Smart pairing, you can easily connect to and remotely control the EOS M5 camera from compatible smartphones. Once you’ve set up the initial pairing, you’re able to set the camera to automatically connect when turned on. With this connection you’re able to control camera operations like capturing an image, without needing to touch the camera. For that next level of connectivity, a direct Wi-Fi connection can be established, letting you use your phone as a viewfinder, and check and download previously captured photos and videos.
Shorter Camera Start-up Time
You don’t want to miss that key moment by having to wait for the camera to turn on. With a quick startup time of approx. 1.0 second, the EOS M5 camera goes from off to able to take a picture almost immediately. Thanks to its fast processing, there's also limited time between image captures. This means the EOS M5 is ready to take that first photo, and the next and the next, when you need it.
