DxoMark recently tested the magnificent EOS M5 at their testing centre. Thankfully, the Canon EOS M5 scored excellent 77 points in overall DXO sensor score and also leading by 5 points from its older sister, EOS M3. Interestingly, its 77 points is just two points lesser than the outstanding 80D. Announced in November last year, the EOS M5 is constantly making a good sale but users are slight disappointed for it being not 4K camera (limited to 4K only). Otherwise, camera carries solid specs ( See the specs below)
- 24.2-MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- Dual Pixel AF
- DIGIC 7 image processor
- 2.36M-dot EVF
- 3.2 in 1.62M-dot tilting touchscreen LCD
- Full HD (1080p) video up to 60 fps
- Digital IS 5-axis image stabilization
- ISO 100-25600 (with expansion)
- 9 fps continuous shooting (7 fps in continuous AF).
- Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi with NFC connectivity
On paper, the M5 looks like a mini-EOS 80D; however, that’s not quite the case. The built-in electronic viewfinder, the additional controls, and 7 fps burst with continuous AF (9 fps with AF locked) are all welcome additions. Taken together with the 24.2-MP Dual Pixel AF CMOS sensor and Digital IS, it all signals Canon’s intention to compete more seriously with rivals in the mirrorless segment. With hindsight, it seems like the Dual Pixel AF CMOS was designed with mirrorless in mind. Image quality is similar to that of the sensor found on the EOS 80D.
