    4K video files are HUGE. To get into 4K you will need:
    1) New monster computer with 2 x 4K monitor.
    2) 4 x 24 TB RAID drives - 1 for work, 3 for backups
    So add to your camera, a new $10,000...

    It's way cheaper than a Leica.
    And it takes better photos.

    Canon needs to get 4K video soon.
    Nikon has jumped into it, moving ahead of Canon.

    I have the M5 and I love it. The M6 is the smaller version. I use mine for photos and videos.

    Although I have a selection of L-lenses from my DSLRs, I am not going to be using them even with...

  • The most important factor in photography is the light. Being able to control the light with flash or continuous lighting give you enormous creative control and freedom.
    People portraits are where...

  • Because they can do better than the person who took the photos of the red flowers.

  • The Canon 80D costs about the same as the Canon M5.
    The Canon M5 is a miniature version of the 80D.
    If you can afford the 80D but want a much smaller pocketable travel-friendly version, get the...

  • "Too pricey for beginners"? The Sony A6300 costs the same but lenses are very expensive. And the Sony A6300 can't do 4K without quickly overheating. So it is essentially a 1080p camera.
    The M5...

  • The biggest problem with 4K is: Do you have the storage for it and the backup capacity?

  • The Canon M5 can be attached to an external USB Battery and run indefinitely. So battery life isn't really a problem.

  • The Canon 80D has the best solo vlogger subject-tracking and focusing among the cameras. The Canon M5 is its smaller clone.

  • Not bad at all. The quality is very similar if not the same as the Canon 80D and Sony A6300.

    Too bad Canon doesn't have a processing chip that can do 4K yet. Or Canon doesn't want to cannibalize...

  • It is a different lens design than the Canon 100 mm F2. So it is a different lens period.

    Sigma did the same thing for years. And no one complained.

  • Note that the Canon G5X HAS the fully articulating screen that would have been perfect for the M5. Sigh.

  • Compared to Sony Canon is only behind in not having 4K

  • Sony doesn't have native lenses for the A6500 Either.

  • The Canon M5 essentially is a miniaturized version of the Canon 80D.
    The biggest problem is the flip screen. Canon should have copied the full articulating screen of the 80D. But instead it did a...
