On article Canon EOS M5: What you need to know (564 comments in total)
In reply to:

ProfHankD: The M5 really seems like a Canon-flavored answer to the A6000 in an A7-ish body ( http://camerasize.com/compare/#684,487 )... overall trailing Sony by about 3 years. However, with the much improved IQ of the M5's not-quite-APS-C (1.6X crop) sensor, Canon has probably crossed the threshold where it is good enough to keep lots of folks from "jumping ship" to Sony mirrorless... especially if they want to continue to use their EF/EF-S lenses. Current Canon users might not even buy that many M5, but the mere suggestion that Canon is now serious about mirrorless is enough to make lots of folks hesitant about switching brands....

Personally, I'll buy one iff either (1) they support dual-pixel (48MP) raw or (2) there is a port of Magic Lantern to it. Magic Lantern is why I own an M... sensor IQ and ease of use with manual lenses is why I own a bunch of Sonys. ;-)

Dual pixel does not mean double the pixel count in recorded pixels. The "other" pixel is for focusing.

MikeFairbanks: Seems kind of expensive for a crop sensor, and the size isn't that much smaller than a Rebel. I had the original EOS-M and liked it, but I eventually went back to DSLR because it's still much faster than any Canon mirrorless, and is a dream on battery usage. My 6D with a 40mm pancake is full frame and can fit in a large cargo pocket in my shorts for concerts, etc. And it will pass a thousand shots on a full charge.

It's priced lower than its competitors.

ttran88: Apple is projected to sell more iPhone 7 this coming weekend than Canon can sell all year ;)

Canon doesn't sell Iphones.

caravan: Will they ever have the courage to remove the fake prisum hump?

Dude, that's the evf. Don't want the hump? Get the M3 without evf.

Halina123: Canon's latest attempt to match the Nikon 1 series. Which beat the $€£ t out of the M1 M2 M3 and M10, because the Nikons can actually focus in real time and get sharp images.

Nikon 1 is all discontinued.

Archer66: "Built-in high-resolution EVF (approx. 2,360,000 dots) with new Touch and Drag AF lets you manually move the AF frame displayed for more precise focusing in different shooting situations."

Hope users won't poke their eye while focusing.

Use the lcd for that not evf.

Catalin Stavaru: This camera is great specs-wise, but it is almost identical in size to the Canon SL1, which has some compact lenses that can be used with it too. They took out the pentaprism and OVF, and added an expensive EVF which increased the price by about $300. And this just to capitalize on the word "mirrorless".

Hopefully an ultra-compact M50 with no EVF and the same internals is on the way. That's what I would buy.

SL1 doesn't have dual pixel af nor does 7 fps. You get what you pay for.

In reply to:

JackM: Personally if I am going mirrorless, I want maximum portability and discreetness. Mirrorless cameras with the hump for the EVF just turn me right off. The motion of putting a camera to your eye alerts everyone around you "hey, I'm taking a picture now!" So it's not a camera for me, but I guess I could see people weighing this against a Rebel.

Try composing and adjusting exposure compensation on the lcd in bright sunlight. Ya.

Mr Bolton: Or maybe you're just a misty eyed Apple fanboy..

I washed my Galaxy S5 last week. I mean it was submerged in the pocket of my Utilikilt, right there in the bottom of the agitating clothes washer for the whole 12 minute wash cycle-detergent and all-before I figured it out and rescued my phone.

And you know what? It has a 16mp Sony sensor in its camera.. and after I washed the soap off it-under the kitchen sink tap-I dried it off with a towel and put it back in my pocket. It still works just fine.

Oh, then I plugged a regular headphone cord into it. And replaced its battery. Then put the other 64GB SD card into it, because it was full of UHD video. Which I know is a couple hundred pixels shy of full 4K, but who's counting..

..then with the s6 samsung made it not water resistant and even eliminated user removable storage card slot!

Studio1138: I got my 5D Mark IV Thursday, photographed a session on Friday, and I am sending it back on Monday! Not impressed with the overall image quality, especially compared to my 5Dsr and Mark III. Skin tones did not look good, just did not have that Canon look at all. I had high hopes for this camera after waiting 4 long years for it. Makes me appreciate my 5Dsr & Mrk III even more.

Mega troll

Shifter: I once said that I was happy with the iPhone 5s (still owe $480 on it) that some people here got severely bent out of shape at the audacity of such a statement even tho I mainly use a EOS7D. The Canon's and Nikon's should take note that often a smart phone is sometimes better. A lot better.

Stop paying monthly on your phone and just buy them like you do a computer. Pay for it all at the start.

The fragile charging protector broke off my s5 phone several months ago. Can't wait to ditch buggy samsung. Done with them. My home theater bluray player stopped loading discs 3 months ago and is only 3 years old. Garbage.

Ron Poelman: People don't buy phones for the camera.
They buy 'em to brag.
How much of a phone is it ?
Meh, and five times the price of a Motorola.

Brag? Iphone is wide spread. It's been years since an iPhone was a status symbol!

Dimit: It is not the ''world's most popular camera''! Stop spreading false information..Samsung galaxy sx is and for more than 12 reasons!
As far as the whole smartphone specs thing.the truth is : It gives always less for more $$$!...Maybe a bit better construction and apparently a cheerleaders' success!

Never heard of the Samsung sx. Iphone us the world's most popular camera.

tkbslc: Even on my $399 OnePlus, the reviewers gave it a hard time for only having a 1080p screen on a 5.5". And here Apple is going loud and proud with it on their $800+ model. And essentially 720p on the regular 7?

Excited to see the dual lens setup in action, though. I'd really enjoy a 56mm FL for portraits.

It's not a 56mm lens.
