The perfect compact companion for high-end photographers, or an alternative to mid-level DSLR cameras, the EOS M5 is a landmark in Canon’s mirrorless range. It’s packed with the very best imaging technology, including a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for sharp, precise photos and dynamic, cinematic movies.
From an animal on the move to a moment of sporting brilliance, the EOS M5 comes to life in just one second, and can continually shoot at 7 fps, or 9 fps with fixed AF.
With the ability to select ISO up to a massive 25,600 with no expansion needed, the EOS M5 is the camera to be carrying for unique, well composed photographs.
EOS M5 can be used with the full range of EF-M lenses or over 80 EF lenses via the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M with no loss in performance or quality.
The in-built, large electronic viewfinder is centrally placed, for DSLR–like handling and fast 120 fps refresh rate for maximum comfort.
When using the viewfinder, the LCD touch screen can be turned into a touch pad, letting you use your thumb to change the AF point or zone, like on a DSLR.
The new DIGIC 7 image processor combined with a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor offers boosted image processing power for lower noise, more detail and richer tones
Dual Pixel CMOS AF delivers outstanding AF speed & accuracy. The sophisticated recognition & subject tracking of DIGIC 7 looks onto subjects more precisely in both movies & stills
With full touch screen interface and a host of manual control dials, the EOS M5 was created from the inside out to work for you.
The EVF is centrally placed for optimal handling and supported by a host of intelligent features like touch & drag AF.
Bluetooth® creates a constant connection between your smartphone & camera. Shoot remotely, view & transfer images with the Canon Camera Connect App.
For Full HD 60p movies that stay steady even when you don’t, the camera body features 5 axis-stabilisation which is enhanced even further when using a lens equipped with Dynamic IS.
