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.
