Welcome to 2017! Every New Year brings the feeling of a fresh start where we look to drop old habits and start new ones. While resolutions typically apply to our lifestyle habits, they can also apply to our hobbies and skills. For example, if you’re a photographer, start 2017 by learning how to take pictures with a different type of camera. If you’ve been using a traditional DSLR, take the New Year to test out new, mirrorless DSLR options like the Canon EOS M5.
What Is A Mirrorless Camera?
Traditional DSLR cameras have the same design of film cameras – they both have complex mirror systems inside the camera body. The mirror reflects light coming in through the lens and into the viewfinder so you can preview your photo before you snap it. When you press the shutter button, the mirror flips up and light falls onto the image sensor to capture your photo.
Like the name suggests, a mirrorless camera doesn’t have a mirror system. Instead, the light passes through the lens and onto the image sensor to take photos. Point-and-shoot cameras and camera phones are two examples of a mirrorless camera. But companies like Canon are helping to change the game by creating mirrorless DSLRs.
What Makes The Canon EOS M5 Different?
Like most mirrorless cameras, the Canon EOS M5 is lightweight, compact, and portable. Standard DSLRs tend to be heavy and bulky, but the EOS M5 provides the same creative options in a more compact unit. It makes it easier to travel with and to have on hand. It also has fast autofocus and processing to help make sure you capture the moment as it happens.
You don’t have to give up image quality for the compact size either. It has a 24.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor that provides sharp, high-resolution images, even in low-light. The electronic viewfinder is high-resolution and can tilt, so you can capture photos at the angel you want.
