Canon EOS M5 specifications and images leaked (24MP, Dual Pixel AF, 7fps, and IBIS?)


Canon EOS M5

  • DIGIC 7
  • 7fps
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Video: FullHD 60fps
  • Dynamic NFC, Bluetooth built-in
  • Media: SD / SDHC / SDXC card
  • Large tilting LCD monitor
  • Fast Start-Up
  • 5-axis electronic image stabilization (IBIS?)
  • Size: 115.6 x 89.2 x 60.6 mm
  • Weight: 427g

Image gallery

As you can see most of the rumoured specs happened to be real, included Dual Pixel AF (we reported). Basically, this appears to be a Canon EOS 80D without the mirror etc. The Canon EOS M5 appears to be slightly smaller and a bit heavier than a Rebel.

And what about “5-axis electronic image stabilization“? This sounds very much like IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) to me. May the Canon EOS M5 have such a technology? Update: it has electronic IBIS.

Well, Canon eventually build the killer-MILC we were all waiting for. The fact that Dual Pixel AF is on board will make a huge difference. We expect Canon to announce the EOS M5 on September 15th. The EOS M5 will go on sale with the following options:

  • M5 body
  • M5 with EF-M 15-45mm kit
  • M5 with EF-M 18-150mm kit

So, what do you think? Is this the enthusiast-oriented Canon mirrorless camera that will destroy the competition? Sound off in the comment section…

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV teardown by LensRentals

canon eos 5d mark iv

All pictures © LensRentals and used with permission.

LensRental’s Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz did it again. They completely disassembled the brand new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

They write:

The weather sealing on the Canon 5d Mark IV appears pretty robust […]  The shell of the camera has an interlocking construction with lots of pins and clips and more screws than previous Canon cameras. This makes it kind of a pain to get into, but I’m sure it adds to the shell’s overall strength. It might make it more weather resistant if the parts are held together more tightly […].

There are more chips, and more and heavier connectors moving electrons from board to board than even the Canon 5Ds cameras have. This kind of makes sense because there’s lots of new stuff in here: a touch screen LCD, dual-pixel technology, WiFi, GPS, the list goes on. […]  There are some empty spaces that aren’t packed full of electronics. In other words, this camera probably could have been a bit smaller but Canon wanted to keep the form factor the same.

Canon celebrates significant milestone with production of 120 million interchangeable EF lenses

Canon Celebrates Significant Milestone With Production Of 120 Million Interchangeable EF Lenses

Canon press release:

TOKYO, September 8, 2016—Canon Inc. today announced the achievement of a new lens-manufacturing milestone with the production on August 26, 2016, of the Company’s 120-millionth EF-series interchangeable lens for EOS cameras—an EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM telephoto zoom lens.

Production of interchangeable EF lenses for Canon EOS-series AF (Autofocus) single-lens reflex film cameras began in 1987 at the Company’s Utsunomiya Plant. Over the years, EF lenses have gained support from a wide range of users and production has since expanded to a total of four manufacturing bases, including Canon Inc., Taiwan; Canon Opto (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.; and Oita Canon Inc. in southern Japan.

EF lens production passed the 10-million-unit mark in 1995 and crossed the 50-million-unit threshold in 2009. In April 2014, the Company celebrated its first-in-the-world achievement of having manufactured 100 million EF lenses, and now, setting a new world record for the most interchangeable lenses produced, Canon manufactured its 120-millionth EF lens in August 2016. What’s more, Canon’s interchangeable-lens digital cameras (digital SLR and compact-system cameras), which utilize EF lenses, have maintained the No. 1 share of the global market for 13 consecutive years since 2003.1

Canon’s proprietary EF lenses, launched in March 1987 along with the EOS SLR camera system, have continued to evolve since their introduction, leading the industry through the incorporation of a wide range of innovative technologies, including such world’s firsts as the Ultrasonic Motor (USM), Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, a multilayered diffractive optical (DO) element, and Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) anti-reflection technology. The Company’s extensive EF lens-series lineup currently comprises a total of 97 models,2 including EF Cinema Lenses for digital cinematography.3

Canon will continue refining its imaging technologies centered on its EF lens lineup, striving to cater to the varying needs of photographers—from first-time users to advanced amateurs and professionals—while contributing to expanding the photographic and video imaging culture.

  1. As of March 29, 2016, based on a Canon survey.
  2. Including two EF lens extenders and three models available outside of Japan. As of September 7, 2016.

Canon EF lenses equipped with world’s-first technologies

Model name Main features and technologies Launch date
EF300mm f/2.8L USM1 World’s first2 use of a lens-based Ultrasonic Motor (USM)
USM technology delivers fast autofocusing thanks to its high torque and responsiveness. By converting ultrasonic vibrations into rotational energy, the technology makes possible quiet, smooth AF drive performance.
Nov. 1987
EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM3 World’s first2 use of Image Stabilizer (IS) technology
Users can see the results of IS technology through the viewfinder. Delivering high precision and stability for exceptional image stabilization results, this technology expands the possibilities for handheld photography.
Sep. 1995
EF400mm f/4 DO IS USM4 World’s first2 use of a diffractive optical (DO) lens element
Diffraction is an optical phenomenon in which light waves bend as they pass around the edges of an object. DO lens elements use this phenomenon to correct for a variety of aberrations by controlling the path that light travels.
Dec. 2001
EF24mm f/1.4L II USM World’s first5 use of Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC)
SWC technology minimizes reflections by aligning countless wedge-shaped structures more minute than the wavelength of visible light on the surface of a camera lens.
Dec. 2008
EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM World’s first2 use of Hybrid IS, which compensates for both angle camera shake and shift camera shake
Employing a newly developed algorithm, Hybrid IS optimally adjusts for camera shake based on information gathered by two sensors located in the lens. By precisely driving the optical correction system, the technology simultaneously corrects for angle and shift camera shake.
Oct. 2009
EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM World’s first2 fisheye lens to deliver both 180-degree diagonal angle of view and 180-degree circular fisheye
The EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM enables the capture of images with dramatic deformations, exaggerated perspectives and extreme depths of field, making possible images that are significantly distorted, similar to what a fish might see were it to look skyward from under the water surface.
Jul. 2011
EF200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x World’s first2 super-telephoto zoom lens to employ an internal extender
Featuring a built-in 1.4x extender, the EF200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x’s zoom range can be expanded with a simple one-touch operation even in locations where users are unable to switch lenses.
May. 2013
EF11-24mm f/4L USM World’s first2 lens offering ultra-wide-angle 11 mm minimum focal length
In addition to achieving the world’s widest angle of view starting at a minimum focal length of 11 mm, the EF11-24mm f/4L USM effectively corrects for aberrations commonly associated with ultra-wide-angle lenses, delivering superior image-quality performance.
