Compact. Powerful. Fast. The EOS M5 features the brilliant image quality you can expect from the EOS line of cameras, in a lightweight, portable design with fast autofocus and processing to help make sure you don’t miss that unforgettable shot. Whether you’re navigating the tight alleys of an old European city or enjoying the view after a strenuous hike, the EOS M5 will let you take advantage of every photo opportunity, more conveniently. Inside its rugged frame is a 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that’s able to capture sharp, high-resolution images even in low-light situations. 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 CMOS (APS-C) sensor, ISO 100–25600.
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 CMOS 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.
High-speed 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 new 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.
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.
* Maximum image stabilization is achieved when using either the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM or the EF-M 15–45mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM with the lens firmware update.
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-color 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.
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.
Built-in NFC** Capability
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.
Remote Shooting/Wireless Print

Top Customer Reviews
1. Much improved AF speed over M3. Pretty much instantaneous. In dimmer light and lower contrast situation, the AF struggles a little bit with slow zoom lenses. However there is now manual focus peaking which is quite helpful. I tried using the 35 f2 IS through an adaptor. It's incredibly fast even in low light.
2. Touch and drag AF. While looking through the viewfinder, you can drag the focus point using the touch screen. This can be useful in some situations. But I find it faster to compose with with the LCD screen, tap on what I want to focus on, and then look through the viewfinder. Or if I am taking picture of a person, I just use face detect.
3. The ergonomics is getting even more similar to other Canon DSLR. I am able to adjust settings much quicker than when using M3. The grip is still very small and not comfortable to hold for extended period of time. But that's really the trade-off we have to live with.
4. Built-in viewfinder is nice and bright. Unlike an optical viewfinder, there is a lag that is noticeable espeically if I do a panning motion. This is something to get used to. I believe Fuji xt2 has shorter lag but that's a different league of mirrorless camera. The EVF in the M5 is good enough for my purpose. Definitely beats the detachable EVF of the M3.
5. Customizable buttons. Most buttons can be customized to my own liking. For instance, I assign the delete button as touch shutter, the flash button as display on/off, the front button as AF->servo, etc. Even the red dot record button can be assigned to something else.
6. Flip screen. I have had 80D briefly. I personally prefer a simple flip up/down screen as opposed to a fully articulating screen. With an articulating screen I need to flip the screen out to the side before I can flip up and down. To me that's not very efficient. Flipping up and down is so much faster. It can flip all the way facing front for selfies.
7. Image quality. Nothing to complain about. Even M3 was pretty good. Now with improved dynamic range, I'm even happier with how much I can edit the RAW files.
8. Continuous shooting. With the M3 if I hold down the shutter it will take something like 5 pictures and then the camera slows down. I'm not a techie but I guess the buffer fills up too quickly. Now it can last way longer. Nothing scientific. But at least I no longer feel like I'm missing critical moments as the M3 would .
9. Small. To take advantage of compactness you absolutely must use M lenses. Canon finally came out with a 18-150mm which I purchased also. M5 + 11-22 + 18-150 +28 macro pretty much fulfills most of my needs. I still carry 5dmk3 with me sometimes but its main purpose now is for fast prime lenses like 135L. I use slow zooms on M5 and fast primes on full frame. To me it makes the most sense. I only got the 18-150 for one day. So far I'm happy with my purchase. It seems as good as the 18-55 kit.
10. Customizable timer. Now with M5, I can set up the camera to, for instance, take 10 pictures consecutively with 5 seconds delay. What it means is that I can set up the camera on a tripod, walk back to my family, and get 10 pictures taken while we try to convince our 3 year-old to look at the camera. I don't think it was available on m3.
1. Expensive. Listing price is not substantially cheaper than 80D. The 80D is a better camera in an absolute sense. But M5 is compact and offers similar image quality. 80D is weather sealed. M5 is not. A refurbished or used M3 is around $300 right now. I personally feel that $800 would have been a fair launch price. If you don't need it right now, you should wait for a price drop.
2. No weather sealing. Granted, the M lenses are not weather sealed so it's pointless to weather seal the camera body. But the thought of paying $1000 for a non-weather resistant camera just doesn't much sense especially knowing that the 80D does offer weather resistance. It's not a deal breaker but I would have been a happier customer.
3. Battery life. It's nothing compared to the 80D which can shoot hundred of shots without recharging. Just buy a few spares. I don't under why Canon charges so much for the EP 17. Almost the same price as 5D, 80D batteries.
4. Where is tap and focus?? I have to tap on the subject I want to shoot and then half press shutter to focus. This happens when I disable continuous focus. If I let the camera keep acquiring focus it'll drain the battery, so I always turn continuous focus off. This is different from the 80D where I can tap on the screen and it will focus on exactly where I tap. I get very annoyed by this. Maybe Canon is trying to help us save battery but they should give users the option to turn it on/off. Well, at least I can use tap and shoot, which is another handy feature. Tap to focus is available in movie mode. That's a big deal. Because if it's not even available in movie mode, I'm returning the camera.
Overall, I'm ambivalent about the M5. It's finally looking less like a point and shoot and more like a dslr. I like M5 to some extent but it doesn't quite match the 80D. It's certainly better than M3 in many ways. But it depends on how desperately you need faster AF and a viewfinder. In terms of image quality, there just isn't substantial change. M3 was great. I'm not a patient person and I can't stand the M3 being slow.
My biggest gripe is price. If as I said the launch price were $800 and I had purchased it at a nice discount price of $650 I'd be a happy camper. I'm trying to say that the value proposition isn't high at this point. The reason I bought it at launch price is because I can no longer carry heavy gear like I used to, and the only mirrorless option from canon that can do what I need it to do is M3 or M5, and between them M5 is highly preferable.
Another thing many complain about is the lack of lens selection. I felt that way before. But now that the 18-150 and 28 macro are released, I think I'm happy as far as lens choices. I don't want big lenses on a small body. Slow zoom is fine if that's what it takes to preserve compactness.
For the size, I really like this camera. I wish there is micro AF adjustment, but frankly I would not know where Canon can put it as it is already so compact.
TL;DR │ This is the only mirrorless camera that made sense to me. The body is perfect. Mirrorless camera do not need to be uber-compact, sacrificing grip and physical controls, as you will haul lenses anyway. Good at everything it does, but not exceptional at anything. Also, Canon had some questionable and outdated choices on this camera.
This review if from a consumer. Most reviews online are from DSLR pros, or even mirrorless fans. This review is not one of those. I won't pretend to be a photography guru. What I will focus instead is what I understand best: the hardware.

I've long stayed away from mirrorless cameras because they did not make sense to me. The use case was just not there. The best camera is the one you take with you, and mirrorless are — although smaller than a DSLR — still bulky due to the lenses. Photography is a hobby, but not a source of living for me. But then, somehow, my 1-inch sensor felt inadequate at times. This is also the reason I got this over a micro four-thirds.
WHAT I LIKE │ + │
+ Still my favorite ergonomics (Canon).
+ Can open battery/card compartment without removing tripod.
+ The Android app for remote shooting and wireless transfer is very responsive.
+ Not too much lenses to choose from.⁽ⁿ¹⁾
+ I really like the optional macro lens you can use with this (Canon only).
WHAT I DON'T LIKE │ × │
× Very, very, plasticky body. No hint of metal (besides the knobs).⁽ⁿ²⁾
× Not fully articulating screen.⁽ⁿ²⁾⁽ⁿ³⁾
× Canon pulled an Apple, by partially locking battery compatibility.
× Even the 1080p is mediocre.⁽ⁿ⁴⁾
× What appears to be a bug on the AF/AE Lock.
× I find the mode dial lock unnecessary.
× They should have included the EOS lens adapter.
× Not a lot of accessories, like a battery grip.
WHAT I HATE │ × │
× Can't charge through USB.⁽ⁿ²⁾⁽ⁿ⁵⁾
× Cannot re-assign buttons when in "auto" mode.⁽ⁿ²⁾⁽ⁿ⁶⁾
× No PC-tethered remote shooting. I was about to write my own program, but I couldn't proceed because it is not even supported by the SDK.
× Very fragile data ribbon for the screen.

My background: I am not a professional, I do not own a DSLR. I know how to shoot. I currently use a G5 X, and also have a G15. I've also had a G9, and an S3 IS (2005-ish, my first camera, and it has an EVF and articulating screen).
- - - - -
⁽ⁿ¹⁾ I acknowledge that this is a "con" for DSLR users. I do however think that the target market of this camera are those who are just starting into the whole "body+lens" camera. Having little option can also be a good thing, especially when you are learning. I know a lot of DSLR owners, who are regular consumers, who shoots at auto all the time, and cannot decide what lens to purchase. I think this is the perfect camera for these people, to really learn.
⁽ⁿ²⁾ These are downgrades for me, comparing to the G5 X.
⁽ⁿ³⁾ I already knew these before buying, and does not factor much in my rating.
⁽ⁿ⁴⁾ I do not care for 4K when it comes to consumer-grade products. But I, at least, expected 1080p to be great. It is okay, and I really like how smooth the focus is.
⁽ⁿ⁵⁾ I cannot believe this. I thought the days of bringing a battery charger is over. This would have been fine have they included the separately sold USB battery charger. Or if the battery has a USB slot. OR if the battery lasts longer. I find this unacceptable in 2017.
⁽ⁿ⁶⁾ I almost never shoot Auto, but people around me do. I always like to set the EVF to manual control. However, I find the camera unusable this way when in any of the Auto modes.
. . .
This camera is for consumers like myself. If you're a pro and primarily use a DSLR, then this might not be perfect due to the lack of lens options. It is worth noting though that you can use Canon EOS lenses with this.
Having used a G5 X, I got really disappointed with this camera. The G5 X is better built, looks more premium, has superior screen ergonomics, and can charge in-camera. This camera will not replace my G5 X, but rather will be a companion.
- - - - -
VERDICT: It's okay. I'll recommend it if you like Canon ergonomics (which I do).
★★★☆☆ | 3 stars out of 5. My objective rating. I tried my best to avoid post-purchase rationalization (choice-supportive bias).
