The Canon EOS M5 is a digital mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera announced by Canon on September 15, 2016 and released in November 2016.[1][2]

As with all of the Canon EOS M series cameras, the M5 uses the Canon EF-M lens mount. This system is rather limited because Canon has presented few lenses, especially few fast lenses. But with an adapter, any other Canon lens can be used for it, even with autofocus.

The M5 is the first M series camera with an integrated electronic viewfinder. The screen is tiltable and can be articulated downwards, so that a vlogger can see himself or herself in the screen. The M5 has reportedly poorer video quality than comparable cameras from other manufacturers, and it goes quickly through the battery.
