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 helps you capture stills and shoot video with quick and precise autofocus
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.
Continuous Shooting at Up to 7.0 fps (Up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock)
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 helps capture fast-moving subjects and brilliant results in MP4 format
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.
