About the Canon EOS M5 Camera Body

Fusing powerful DSLR performance with the portable convenience of a compact, Canon today unveils a brand new EOS M mirrorless camera – the EOS M5. The first EOS to include Canon’s DIGIC 7 processor, it’s packed with the very best imaging technology, including a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for sharp, precise photos and dynamic, cinematic movies. The perfect compact companion for high-end photographers, or an alternative to mid-level DSLR cameras, the EOS M5 is a landmark in Canon’s mirrorless range.

The EOS M5 was created from the inside out, to work for you. The in-built, large electronic viewfinder is centrally placed, for DSLR–like handling, as well as high resolution and fast 120 fps refresh rate for maximum comfort. When using the viewfinder, the LCD touch screen – your portal to every setting – can be turned into a touch pad, letting you use your thumb to change the AF point or zone, mimicking the Multi-controller ‘joy stick’ function of a DSLR. For full control, the premium finish body has several customisable external buttons, including a new thumb operated dial for easy exposure control. For true versatility, the EOS M5 can be used with over 80 EF lenses using the Mount Adapter EF-EOS M with no loss in performance or quality.

Alongside Wi-Fi and NFC, the EOS M5 offers Bluetooth® connectivity – which creates a constant connection between your smartphone and camera. From there you can view and transfer images without taking the camera out of your bag, as it automatically shifts to Wi-Fi when needed. The feature can also be used to turn your smartphone into a simple, low power remote control for prolonged remote shooting or capturing scenes that require a fast shutter release, such as wildlife shoots.
