EOS M5 + 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens
Mirrorless Digital Camera Kit
The EOS M5 from Canon is a versatile mirrorless digital camera well-suited to capturing both stills and video, featuring a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor. Together they provide a wide sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600, up to 9 fps continuous shooting, and Full HD 1080p/60 video recording. Dual Pixel CMOS AF ensures fast and precise phase-detection autofocus, ideal for subject tracking. Digital IS 5-axis image stabilisation is also included to reduce the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
The camera features a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and a large 3.2" 1.62m-dot LCD tilting touchscreen design (85° up, 180° down) with Touch and Drag AF for intuitive focusing point control. Physical controls allow for intuitive settings adjustments and include a front dial, quick control dial, dial function button, and exposure compensation dial. Each of these can be customised to adjust specific functions for more personalised control. Also included is built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless image sharing with a paired smartphone or tablet, and Bluetooth for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.Here the M5 is kitted with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens from Canon, a versatile 24-72mm equivalent focal length lens, covering wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives when used with APS-C-format EOS M-series mirrorless cameras. It features a retracting design, making it ideal for travel. A lead-screw-type STM stepping motor ensures focusing is fast and quiet, making it a great choice for both stills and video recording, and full-time manual focus operation is available for fine-tuned adjustments. An Optical Image Stabiliser is also featured, and works to compensate for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake, allowing you to shoot handheld with slower shutter speeds.
The optical design uses three aspherical elements; one glass-moulded and two precision moulded, to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range. Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved colour and contrast when working in difficult lighting conditions.
