EOS M5 What's Included
EOS M5 Body is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good photos but painfully slow Have just used my M5 on a 6 week tour of NZ. It takes very good photos but painfully slow to focus and long lag for shutter release, leading to missed shots. Fitted with 18-150mm lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera Been using this little beauty for a couple of months now and all I can say is wow For a small camera it packs a big punch Definitely worth buying and well worth the price range
Date published: 2018-05-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect travel camera - light but highly capable I’ve found the M5 to be a great travel camera. Matched with the 11-22 and 18-150 (and the 22mm f2 thrown in) it’s light and highly capable. Even used to photograph a wedding recently. I do miss the optical viewfinder that my 50D has, but the digital viewfinder is not far off. Battery life isn’t spectacular and spares are expensive. All in all, very happy with this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My M5 mirrorless travel camera. I bought this camera to take travelling and love the quality of photos and video, ease of handling and light weight. I don't regard it as fully featured however, as one of my passions is night sky, and I do get tired of the common message, "*Canon EOS M Series cameras do not support remote shooting functions and are NOT compatible*". This inevitably displays when I look at EOS M5 compatibility with any product, including Canon branded products, that MAY allow me to use this camera to its full capabilities, I.E. with a remote feature and live-view. I have read many similarly frustrated users comments. I do know that it can take very good tripod mounted photos and video of night sky objects, with some perseverance and a cabled intervalometer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for enthusiasts to professionals This camera is great for all occasions. If you're new to photography you can set it to auto and it will do all the work for you, and the more experienced you get the more options there are to take your photography game to the next level. We loved it for portraits, landscape and food videography!
Date published: 2018-01-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little camera. Thiis is a great little (literally) camera much smaller and lighter than my Canon EOS 5 Mk II. I have been using Canon gear for many years now, and the adapter which comes with the body allows me to use all my current lenses. My only problem is to do with my ageing fingers. When I'm prowling with the camera/lens etc I inadvertently keep pressing the Movie button. Of course these images can be removed after downloading. The movie button works well when needed, producing a very nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Camera Small body big on performance. Great for field work as it is lighweight AND packs sophisticated power and reatures of DSLRs. APS-C CCD produces crisp and beautiful images of portraiture thru to landscapes. Versatile touch screen allows access to all camera settings and configurations very quickly and without fuss, or extensive study of manuals. This feature alone makes it a breeze to massively improve your abilities to utilise camera config options to capture better images! Smartphone pairing allows wireless remote control shutter release! This is super cool - it literally turns your phone into your camera! Candid street photography is a reality now as no-one knows you are shooting. Imagine how much better, more natural and relaxed people are, when they dont know you are shooting! This is stealth-mode photography made easy. Fast wireless download shots to your phone for viewing and post production editing. No more clunky cables... yay!
