Canon EOS M5 Review

No reviews
Verdict: The EOS M5 really opens up the SLR-versus-mirrorless debate. Many people like electronic viewfinders because they show the image exactly as the camera will capture it, but others prefer the visual clarity of an optical viewfinder.
Pros: Very compact for an APS-C camera, Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, Effective control layout
Cons: Limited lens choice, Some exposure inconsistencies, Expensive compared to rivals

Canon EOS M5 + 18-150/3.5-6.3 IS STM

No reviews
Verdict: Canon has taken the EOS M line of cameras to the next level with their M5 model. The M5 brings some serious improvements to the line; increasing the image quality, power, and features that are offered.
Pros: iAuto and Program shooting modes are accurate and easy in all situations, Dual Pixel AF is very fast, Burst shooting went beyond the Canon claims, Great image quality at the lower ISOs, 5-Axis image stabilization was a help when shooting handheld stills, Touch AF is great for selecting an AF point...
Cons: High ISO includes a lot of noise, Touch AF can be difficult when turned on as it will change the AF point every time the LCD is touched (If you are not intending to use this feature, Limited M-Mount lens selection, 5-Axis IS was a little disappointing when shooting handheld video, Adapter adds...

Review: Canon EOS M5

3.5
Verdict: The mirrorless camera market was long notable for what it lacked: hardware from Nikon and Canon. Technically Canon has had a mirrorless offering for about four years, the EOS M, but it was a low-end model that felt more like a token gesture than a real camera.
Pros: Small and light enough to appeal to fans of compacts. Very fast and accurate autofocus---one of the best AFs we've seen. Excellent electronic viewfinder and touchscreen for easy and comfortable compositions
Cons: Lacks fast native lenses. There's a lens adaptor, but it costs another $200. Viewfinder blackout is pronounced. No 4K video, which feels odd in 2017

Canon EOS M5 + 18-150/3.5-6.3 IS STM

No reviews
Verdict: Let me be honest: I sincerely don't know what to think of the Canon EOS M5. There, I said it. I'm sitting here in front of my computer trying to write some useful insights and I realise I don't really have a clue. Do I like it? No. Do I dislike it? No. Perhaps the best word would be: indifference.

Canon EOS M5

4.0
Verdict: Canon launched the EOS M5 just a few days before 2016's Photokina, the massive bi-annual photography show in Cologne, Germany. It was a clear sign that the company was starting to take its mirrorless proposition a little more seriously.
Pros: Nice OLED eye viewfinder, Varied connectivity options, Useful touchscreen
Cons: No 4K video recording, Pricey

Canon EOS M5

4.5
Verdict: Equipped with a 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor, the Canon EOS M5 offers similar image quality as its predecessors but much improved overall performance. Considering also its inclusion of Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a built-in electronic viewfinder and larger 3.2-inch touchscreen,...
Pros: Enthusiast-oriented compact camera body; Good image quality in most situations; Built-in electronic viewfinder; Impressive Dual Pixel CMOS AF; Very good overall performance
Cons: High ISO image quality and dynamic range aren't quite up to par with some of its competition; No 4K video recording; Native EF-M lens selection is still limited; Below average battery life

Canon EOS M5 Review

No reviews
Verdict: If you have been waiting to jump into a Canon MILC and an APS-C sensor format works for you, the EOS M5 is a great choice. While one may feel a tendency to treat a camera of this size as a point and shoot model, using it for those still-important snapshot opportunities that pop up (it works...

Canon EOS M5 + 18-150/3.5-6.3 IS STM

4.1
Verdict: The EOS M5 has plenty going for it. Shooting smooth, properly focused video is incredibly easy, and the new 24MP sensor has made great strides in overall image quality. Dual Pixel autofocus makes for faster, more precise focusing and really makes the M5 shine with adapted lenses.

Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera Review

No reviews
Verdict: The new Canon EOS M5 is Canon's first M-system with an integrated EVF. The new EVF of the EOS M5 is based on OLED technology and offers a bright and brilliant image. With a frame rate of 120 Hertz it can refresh rapidly enough to cover even very fast moving objects.

Canon EOS M5 review

4.0
Verdict: There's much to like about Canon's little EOS M5. The 24MP APS-C sensor delivers images with bags of detail, while the polished handling, including a well thought-out control layout that's brilliantly integrated with the touchscreen interface, makes it a nice camera to shoot with.
Pros: Polished handling, Excellent touchscreen control, Plenty of detail in images, Connectivity
Cons: No 4K video capture, Limited lens range, Pricey compared to rivals

Canon EOS M5 review: 'Mirrorless 80D' fails to faze its compact system competition

3.5
Verdict: It's fair to say we've been highly critical of Canon 's compact system camera EOS M line. For a simple reason, though: the Japanese company's mirrorless cameras simply haven't been able to stand up to the competition.
Pros: Small size, big step forward for EOS M series, fast autofocus setup (finally), decent viewfinder and touchscreen combination, access to lots of lenses (via adapter
Cons: Battery depletion issues, autofocus setup can't compete with the best mirrorless cameras out there, high ISO sensitivity shows off image noise, no 4K video, expensive compared to competition

Canon EOS M5 + 18-150/3.5-6.3 IS STM

No reviews
Verdict: Canon turned up late to the mirrorless party. Very late. In fact, by the time it finally arrived in mid-2012, four years after Panasonic's ground-breaking G1, every other major manufacturer was already in the game.

Canon EOS M5 review

No reviews
Verdict: Canon's EOS M5 is the company's highest-end mirrorless camera to date and by far its most satisfying. It's the first Canon mirrorless with a built-in viewfinder, and the first to also deploy the fabulous Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology which allows it to confidently refocus during movies, albeit still...

Canon EOS M5

3.5
Verdict: Canon's foray into the mirrorless world was fraught with missteps, with its first few efforts lagging well behind the competition in focus speed. The EOS M5 ($979, body only) represents a big change-its autofocus system is speedy, and it can fire off images at a quick 8.2fps burst rate.
Pros: 24MP resolution. Quick autofocus. 8.2fps continuous shooting. TIlting touch-screen LCD. Sharp EVF. Built-in flash. Canon accessory compatibility. Wi-Fi
Cons: Video limited to 1080p. Omits weather sealing. Focus can struggle in dim light

Canon EOS M5 review: Canon's best CSC yet

4.0
Verdict: Digital SLRs still dominate among professional photographers and amateur enthusiasts of a certain age, but those who grew up with Thundercats instead of Thunderbirds are more likely to own a compact system camera (CSC).
Pros: Elegant controls, Compatible with EF-S lenses (via an adapter, Versatile 18-150mm kit lens
Cons: No 4K video, Limited number of EOS-M lenses

Canon EOS M5

4.0
Verdict: Canon's latest compact system camera is perhaps the first time the company has launched a CSC for a "serious" audience. The EOS M5 features a 24.2 megapixel, APS-C sized sensor, which is joined by a Digic 7 processor. It is, in essence, a miniature version of the Canon EOS 80D.

Canon EOS M5 Review – A Minified, Mirrorless Canon EOS 80D

No reviews
Verdict: Canon EOS M5 is a good package camera all around. Getting a preview image that is about to be taken is excellent. You can save precious time and catch more good moments. I love the EVF and those dials are easier to access. The camera is also small and perfect for travellers who want to travel light.

FIRST LOOK: Canon EOS M5

4.4

Canon EOS M5

No reviews
Verdict: Canon's EOS M5 is widely touted as the mirrorless alternative to the larger, heavier EOS 80D. There's certainly a number of parallels, including a 24.2 MP APS-C sized sensor, Full HD video recording, built-in wireless and almost the same number of focus points (49 vs 45 in favour of the M5).
Pros: Touch and drag, EVF at long last, comes with lens adapter when purchased with bundle
Cons: Shutter lag, EVF flickers a bit, strong competition in its price range

Canon EOS M5 review

4.0
Verdict: Although Canon launched its first mirrorless camera, the EOS M, back in 2012, the company has never quite seemed to take the idea seriously until now. The original EOS M was over simplistic and painfully slow at focusing, and while last year's EOS M3 was much improved, it was hamstrung by the lack...
Pros: + Superb control layout and handling for such a small camera, + Excellent image quality in both JPEG and raw, + Works extremely well with a wide range of EF-mount SLR lenses, + Easy-to-use wireless communication using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Cons: Relatively small and over-contrasty electronic viewfinder, Shutter is noisier than most mirrorless rivals, Price is very high

Canon EOS M5 Camera Review: Nice Design With Some Rough Edges

3.5
Verdict: Canon's EOS M cameras have been something of a disappointment, failing to translate the company's expertise at making DSLRs into the mirrorless camera market. But the M5 shows that Canon is getting there: This camera has many of the benefits of its larger DSLR cousins (image quality, ease of...
Pros: DSLR-like controls, Can use EF-S lenses with optional adapter, Compact size
Cons: No 4K video, Disappointing image and video quality in low light, Awkward video-shutter placement makes for bumpy video starts
