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 Smart 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.
