Canon EOS M5 Sensor Reviewed by DxOMark

By on

Canon EOS M5 sensor reviewed by DxOMark. They have posted the test results and the high-end APS-c camera achieved a score of 77 points overall.

The EOS M5 from Canon features a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF. It has a DIGIC 7 processor, a built-in 2.36M-dot EVF as well as 9fps continuous shooting, and Full HD 60p movies.

According to Canon EOS M5 sensor test results, mirrorless camera delivered excellent all-round image quality. It most likely the same as that in the Canon EOS 80D, it’s not surprising the scores are very similar overall.

From DxOMark conclusion:

On paper, the M5 looks like a mini-EOS 80D; however, that’s not quite the case. The built-in electronic viewfinder, the additional controls, and 7 fps burst with continuous AF (9 fps with AF locked) are all welcome additions. Taken together with the 24.2-MP Dual Pixel AF CMOS sensor and Digital IS, it all signals Canon’s intention to compete more seriously with rivals in the mirrorless segment.  With hindsight, it seems like the Dual Pixel AF CMOS was designed with mirrorless in mind. Image quality is similar to that of the sensor found on the EOS 80D.
