Canon EOS M5 First Look
Is the Canon EOS M5 the mirrorless compact interchangeable-lens camera Canon fans have been waiting for? Its predecessors, most recently the 24MP M3 and 18MP M10, were boxy affairs that didn’t generate a lot of excitement.
24.2 MP CMOS (APS-C) sensor
The EOS M5 camera features a 24.2 MP (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing large image and movie files. At 24.2 MP, the EOS M5’s sensor delivers images suitable for enlargements with sufficient resolution for significant trimming. Whether making poster-sized prints or making Full HD movies, the EOS M5’s sensor is primed to deliver.
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.
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.
Thanks to Bluetooth® 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.
Continuous Shooting at Up to 7.0 fps (Up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock)
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.
