Rumor: Is this the upcoming Canon EOS M5?

Rumor: Is this the upcoming Canon EOS M5?

Nokishita seems to have images and a full specifications list for what would be Canon’s newest mirrorless camera, the EOS M5, rumored to be announced later today. Have a look below and see what you think. It looks like a more serious mirrorless offering from Canon, and we certainly hope this signals the start of a lineup of professional/prosumer mirrorless cameras that bring in the best of both worlds.

It seems like the new M5 will have knurled dials.

It looks like the camera will have a pop-up flash.

A nice big LCD dominates the rear.

Have a look at these specs:

  • Effective resolution: 24.2 million pixel APS-C CMOS (total number of pixels: 25.8 million pixels)
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • DIGIC 7
  • ISO Sensitivity: 100-25600
  • Shutter speed: 1 / 4,000 to 30 seconds, bulb, maximum flash synchro shutter speed 1/200 sec
  • Continuous shooting: up to about 9fps with AF lock, 7 fps without
  • Video: Full HD 60p, 5-axis electronic image stabilization
  • EVF: 2.36 Million  dots
  • 3.2“ 1.62 million dot touch panel movable LCD
  •  Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b/g/n)
  • Bluetooth (4.1)
  • Battery: LP-E17
  • Memory card: SD / SDHC / SDXC card (UHS-I compatible)
  • Size (W x H x D): 115.6 x 89.2 x 60.6 mm
  • Weight: about 380g (body only), 427g (including battery · SD card)

Certainly sounds like a serious contender doesn't it? Let's hope the official announcement really comes soon.
