An interview from the 2016 PhotoPlus Expo in New York City with Drew MacCallum of Canon USA. Canon manufactures their Cinema EOS Line of compact, modular cameras designed specifically for cinematography applications, featuring Canon's unique Super 35mm CMOS sensor, revolutionary Canon DIGIC Image Processor, and 50Mbps 4:2:2 recording, in PL and EF-mount options. In this interview Drew talks with us about the new Canon EOS M5, Canon's first Mirrorless Digital Camera.
The EOS M5 camera features a 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing large image and movie files. At 24.2 Megapixels, the EOS M5’s sensor delivers images suitable for enlargements with sufficient resolution for significant trimming. Whether making poster-sized prints, zooming in on a particular detail or making Full HD movies, the EOS M5’s sensor is primed to deliver. An ISO range of 100–25600 means images can be captured with low noise and high detail, even in dimly lit situations.
With the EOS M5 camera, there’s virtually no wait for focus, even in low light. Inside, its Dual Pixel CMOS AF system offers fast and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. To help you get multiple images of a fast-moving subject and ensure you capture the moment you want, the EOS M5 camera is capable of taking up to 7.0 frames per second (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock). Whether you’re capturing an athlete making a goal or a toddler running clumsily after bubbles, the EOS M5 can take the shot and stay locked on with its new DIGIC 7 Image Processor.
Complementing the imaging capabilities, the camera's design is equally versatile due to the inclusion of both a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder along with a large 3.2" 1.62m-dot LCD tilting touchscreen. The touchscreen design enables Touch and Drag AF for intuitive focusing point control, and an array of additional physical dials and control buttons provide an efficient means for settings changes. Additionally, the camera sports built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth Smart is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.
