The first compact-system camera to feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the EOS M5 incorporates an APS-C size sensor with all of its approximately 24.2 million effective pixels*1 capable of both phase detection AF and image capture. Accordingly, the sensor enables quick focusing and smooth tracking across a wide shooting area*2 to realize up to approximately 7 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting with AF and AE tracking, and up to approximately 9 fps continuous shooting with fixed AF.

In pursuit of comfortable viewfinder shooting, the EOS M5 features a built-in approximately 2.36-million-dot high-resolution EVF with approximately 100% viewfinder coverage. When looking through the viewfinder, the EVF and LCD screen work together—Touch & Drag AF operations on the LCD screen can be used to move the AF frame displayed on the EVF—for intuitive focusing.

Equipped with the newest DIGIC 7 image processor and an approximately 24.2 million effective pixel APS-C size CMOS sensor, the EOS M5 achieves improved noise reduction and image resolution over the EOS M3 when shooting at high sensitivities, realizing a normal high sensitivity of ISO25600 when shooting still images. Noise is suppressed, even in low-light environments, allowing for high-image-quality shooting that captures images with a sense of depth and texture.
