The Canon EOS M5 takes the company's mirrorless line a step forward with a 24.2MP CMOS sensor using Dual Pixel technology, a DIGIC 7 image processor and a built-in 2.36M-dot EVF. The enthusiast-focused camera fetaures control points, burst shooting at 7fps and 1080/60p video that combines in-lens and digital IS for 5-axis stabilization for movie recording.
The M5's 3." 1.62M-dot touchscreen tilts up by 85° and downward by 180°, and supports touch-focusing even when using the EVF. Wi-Fi and NFC are offered along with low energy Bluetooth that provides a continuous connection.
The Canon EOS M5 will go on sale in November 2016. It will sell for $979 body-only, with the EF-M 15-45mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM for $1099 or with the just-announced EF-M 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM for $1479 (goes on sale in December).
