The M5 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor, DIGIC 7 Image Processor and the fastest AF speed in the EOS M-series, enabling photographers to capture clear, sharp, high-resolution images and Full HD videos. It is also the first in the EOS camera line to include the low energy Bluetooth Smart feature that can maintain a constant connection with your compatible smartphone or tablet when you use the Canon Camera Connect application and both applications are active.
The 18-150 mm lens is compatible with all EOS M series digital cameras.
The M5 has a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) and Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF for capturing stills and shooting video with smooth and precise autofocus. This allows for Touch and Drag AF so users can easily switch the subject of their focus by dragging the AF frame directly on the LCD panel, even while looking through the camera’s EVF. Focus peaking allows users to highlight the area of the image that is in focus from within the EVF or LCD monitor. In addition to its touchscreen operability, the EOS M5 camera also has easily accessible dials.
Other features: ISO 100–25600; high-speed continuous shooting at up to 7.0 fps (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock); Full HD 60p in MP4 format; Digital IS with 5-axis image stabilization when shooting movies plus increased image stabilization with both lens optical IS and in-camera digital IS when shooting with an IS lens; built-in high-resolution EVF; intuitive touch screen 3.2-inch tilt-type (85° up/180° down) LCD monitor; easily customize functions while shooting using the Main Dial, Quick Control Dial, Dial Function Button, and Exposure Compensation Dial; built-in Wi-Fi and NFC allows for easy sharing and transferring of images and videos.
The M5 shoots time-lapse videos and also allows for easy panning by setting the optimal shutter speed after analyzing the camera’s panning speed and how fast the subject is moving.
