From the manufacturer
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. Its 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor captures sharp, high-resolution images even in low-light situations. Dual Pixel CMOS AF quickly and accurately locks onto your subject to help capture the moment. 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 MP CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
The EOS M5 camera features a 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing large image and movie files and delivering 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.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
The EOS M5 camera’s 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.
The EOS M5 camera can take up to 7.0 frames per second (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock) and stay locked on with its DIGIC 7 Image Processor, which helps keep subjects in focus and ensure a high level of sharpness and minimum noise. Dual Sensing IS helps minimize the blur caused by camera shake and body movement. All this is in addition to upgraded detail and noise reduction abilities, especially in low light with high ISO settings.
Full HD 60p
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 makes storing, downloading and sharing quick and easy. Manual movie mode lets you 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 counter unintentional shaking when moving, the EOS M5 camera features 5-axis Digital Image Stabilization3 when recording video. Blur due to movement in several directions is 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 features help ensure the videos you record are as sharp as possible.
The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder 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. Touch and Drag AF lets you use the rear screen as a touchpad while you’re using the viewfinder, so you can focus with a touch without moving the camera away from your face.
Tilt-type Touchscreen LCD
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.
Five Control Dials
Multiple customizable dials 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 settings without having to dive through menus.
Built-in Wi-Fi technology and the Canon Camera Connect app4 help transfer photos and videos to and from compatible devices, upload directly to various web services, shoot remotely and more. It can also connect and print directly to IP-compatible printers. Built-in NFC technology5 means direct connection to compatible devices by touching the NFC icon on the camera to the device.
Built-in Bluetooth1 Connectivity.
Bluetooth1 pairing lets you easily connect to and remotely control the EOS M5 from compatible smartphones using the free Canon Camera Connect app4. Once you’ve set up the initial pairing, you’re able to set the camera to automatically connect when turned on. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi connection to use your phone as a viewfinder, and check and download previously captured photos and videos.
Shorter Camera Startup Time2.
With a quick startup time2 of approx. 1.0 second, the EOS M5 camera goes from off to able to take a picture almost immediately. Thanks to its fast processing, there's also limited time between image captures. This means the EOS M5 is ready to take that first photo, and the next and the next, when you need it.
1 Compatible with select smartphone and tablet devices (Android version 5.0 or later and the following iOS devices: iPhone 4s or later, iPad 3rd gen. or later, iPod Touch 5th gen. or later) equipped with Bluetooth version 4.0 or later and the Camera Connect App Ver. 2.1.30. This application is not guaranteed to operate on all listed devices, even if minimum requirements are met.
2 Approx. 66% faster than the EOS M3 camera.

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.
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).

This review is for the Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Kit.
So far I think my decision is panning out. Indeed the M5 + 22mm pancake is extremely portable and I'm carrying it around where I otherwise wouldn't. I'm putting it in a small fanny pack on bike rides. With the adapter, I can use my existing Canon prime lenses. While this is pricey compared to Sony equivalents, you're paying a premium for access to the Canon ecosystem and pedigree. Canon color is simply better than Sony color. Canon lenses are simply better and cheaper.
The touchscreen focus is awesome. The "touch-to-drag" focus while using the viewfinder is awesome. The ability to actually manually focus is awesome since this camera has the "peaking" feature where in-focus areas show up as highlighted in red. I don't think any of the dSLRs can do that.
Yes, the camera has the shortcomings people talk about. The battery life is lower than what I'm used to with Canon's Rebel lineup. The autofocus can be slow or hunt in low light (but the MF peak focusing feature makes up for that). The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. But I'm looking past those shortcomings in order to get a small/sweet package.
Also the WiFi/Bluetooth integration is great.
