14 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon EOS M5

6% Larger Display Diagonal

The Canon EOS M5 has a display diagonal of 3.2. That's 0.2" larger than the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 (3"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Touchscreen

The Canon EOS M5 has a touchscreen, and so do the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, but the Fuji XT2 and the Sony α Alpha A9 do not. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Larger Viewfinder Screen Size

The Canon EOS M5 is a 3.2 viewfinder screen size digital camera. That's 2.7" larger than the Fuji XT2 and the Sony α Alpha A9 (0.5") and 0.2" larger than the Fujifilm XE3 (3"). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Bluetooth

The Canon EOS M5 features bluetooth (as do the Fujifilm XE3 and the Sony α Alpha A9), whereas the Fuji XT2 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III do not feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Built-in Flash

The Canon EOS M5 has a built-in flash, and so do the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, however the Sony α Alpha A9 does not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.

More Customers Recommend it

12.7% of 300 customers recommend the Canon EOS M5, however only 5.6% of 359 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A9.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, however Fuji only has an average rating of 72.6%, Fujifilm only has an average rating of 87.7%, Olympus only has an average rating of 81.3% and Sony only has an average rating of 91.5%.

Has a Better Price

The Canon EOS M5 reviewers thought the Canon EOS M5 has a better price.

Has a Better Long Battery Life

Our analysis of the Canon EOS M5 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon EOS M5 has a better long battery life. Over 10 people thought that it had a very good battery life.

A Better Size

The Canon EOS M5 reviewers thought the Canon EOS M5 was a better size. Over 20 people thought that it was very compact and more than 10 people thought that it was also lightweight and was a good size. Our analysis also found that several people thought that it was a good body shape and was really easy to carry around.

Has a Better Design

On average reviewers thought the Canon EOS M5 has a better design. Several people thought that it was ergonomic, was very well designed and was good-looking.

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Canon EOS M5 was easier to use. Over 30 people thought that it was very easy to use and more than 10 people thought that it also had brilliant controls. Several people also thought that it was really easy to handle and was comfortable and easy to hold.

Has a Better Screen or Viewfinder

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon EOS M5 has a better screen or viewfinder. More than 10 people thought that it had a good viewfinder and was mirrorless. More than 10 people also thought that it had a electronic viewfinder and had a superb screen. Looking through the reviews we also noticed that seven people thought that it had an excellent touch-screen.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon EOS M5

93g Heavier

The Canon EOS M5 has a weight of 380, whereas the Fuji XT2 is a 457g digital camera (77g heavier), the Fujifilm XE3 is a 287g digital camera (93g lighter), the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a 410g digital camera (30g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A9 is a 673g digital camera (293g heavier). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Lower Megapixels

The Canon EOS M5 is a 24.2 digital camera, and so does the Sony α Alpha A9. That's 0.1MP lower than the Fuji XT2 and the Fujifilm XE3 (24.3MP) and 8.1MP higher than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (16.1MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

7 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon EOS M5 supports a still image resolution of 2400 x 1344, however the Fuji XT2 supports a still image resolution of 6000 x 4000, the Fujifilm XE3 supports a still image resolution of 2000 x 2000 and the Sony α Alpha A9 supports a still image resolution of 3008 x 1688. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Not Waterproof

The Canon EOS M5 is not waterproof (As do the the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III), whereas the Fuji XT2 and the Sony α Alpha A9 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Canon EOS M5 is only 25 maximum ISO speed, and so do the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9. That's 25,600 lower than the Fuji XT2 and the Fujifilm XE3 (51,200). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon EOS M5 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, however the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS M5 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). More ...

The Canon EOS M5 also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Only 2 USB Version

The Canon EOS M5 supports a 2 USB version (as do the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9), but the Fuji XT2 supports a 3 USB version. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon EOS M5 does not have a GPS (As does the the Fujifilm XE3), but the Fuji XT2, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

997ms Slower Start-Up Time

The Canon EOS M5 has a start-up time of 1, whereas the Fuji XT2 is a 3ms start-up time digital camera (997ms faster). More ...

'Start-up time' measures how long it takes the camera to start working when you press the power button.

Faster start-up times mean the camera will be ready to use faster, which means there is less chance of losing a good shot because your camera was still getting itself ready.

Only 295 Battery Life

The Canon EOS M5 is a digital camera that takes 295 battery life, whereas the Fuji XT2 only takes 340 battery life, the Fujifilm XE3 only takes 350 battery life, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III only takes 330 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A9 only takes 650 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon EOS M5 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III scored 82 and the Sony α Alpha A9 scored 82.

More Expensive by £91

The Canon EOS M5 is £60 more expensive than the Fujifilm XE3 and £91 more expensive than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III.

Older by Over One Year

The Canon EOS M5 is seven months older than the Fujifilm XE3, 21 months older than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and six months older than the Sony α Alpha A9.

Six Less Awards

The Canon EOS M5 has only received 10 awards, however the Sony α Alpha A9 has received 16 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Canon EOS M5 only has an average expert score of 76%, but the Sony α Alpha A9 has an average expert rating of 93% (based on 161 reviews).

User Review Rating is Worse

The Canon EOS M5 has an average user score of 87%, but the Sony α Alpha A9 has an average user rating of 96% (based on 125 reviews).

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A9

Higher Video Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A9 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Canon EOS M5 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony α Alpha A9 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. But the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS M5 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Sony α Alpha A9 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and 1280 x 720 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

355 More Battery Life

The number of battery life on the Sony α Alpha A9 is 650, but the Canon EOS M5 only takes 295 battery life, the Fuji XT2 only takes 340 battery life, the Fujifilm XE3 only takes 350 battery life and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III only takes 330 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Bluetooth

The Sony α Alpha A9 features bluetooth, and so do the Canon EOS M5 and the Fujifilm XE3, but the Fuji XT2 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III do not. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony α Alpha A9 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, however the Canon EOS M5 scored 81, the Fuji XT2 scored 74 and the Fujifilm XE3 scored 79.

16 More Awards

The Sony α Alpha A9 has received 16 awards, whereas the Canon EOS M5 has received 10 awards, the Fuji XT2 has received no awards, the Fujifilm XE3 has received no awards and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III has received no awards.

Expert Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 161 expert reviews, the average review score of the Sony α Alpha A9 is 93%, however the average rating of the Canon EOS M5 is 76% (based on 119 reviews).

User Reviews Are Better

Based on 125 user reviews, the average review score of the Sony α Alpha A9 is 96%, however the average rating of the Canon EOS M5 is 87% (based on 136 reviews).

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A9

37% Heavier

The Sony α Alpha A9 is a 673 digital camera. That's 293g heavier than the Canon EOS M5 (380g), 216g heavier than the Fuji XT2 (457g), 386g heavier than the Fujifilm XE3 (287g) and 263g heavier than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (410g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

0.1MP Lower Megapixels

The Sony α Alpha A9 has a megapixels of 24.2 (as does the Canon EOS M5), whereas the Fuji XT2 and the Fujifilm XE3 are both 24.3MP digital cameras (0.1MP higher) and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a 16.1MP digital camera (8.1MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

5 Times Smaller Image Sensor Size

The Sony α Alpha A9 has a 1/3 or less" (1/3 or less)" image sensor size, which is 5 times smaller image sensor size as the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (4/3"). We do not know what type of image sensor size the Canon EOS M5 and the Fuji XT2 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A9 supports a still image resolution of 3008 x 1688, which is 5 times lower still image resolution as the Fuji XT2 (6000 x 4000). More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony α Alpha A9 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 25 (as do the Canon EOS M5 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III), however the Fuji XT2 and the Fujifilm XE3 are both 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (25,600 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony α Alpha A9 is a 3 screen digital camera (as do the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III), whereas the Canon EOS M5 is a 3.2" screen digital camera (0.2" larger). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

2.7" Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Sony α Alpha A9 has a viewfinder screen size of 0.5 (as does the Fuji XT2), but the Canon EOS M5 and the Fujifilm XE3 are both 3" viewfinder screen size digital cameras (2.5" larger). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Half As New USB Version

The Sony α Alpha A9 supports a 2 USB version, and so do the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, which is half as new USB version as the Fuji XT2 (3). More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Sony α Alpha A9 does not have a built-in flash, however the Canon EOS M5, the Fuji XT2, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III do. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

£1,970 More Expensive

The Sony α Alpha A9 is more expensive than the Canon EOS M5 by £1,879, more expensive than the Fuji XT2 by £1,569, more expensive than the Fujifilm XE3 by £1,939 and more expensive than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III by £1,970.

Less Retailers

Only 4 stores sells the Sony α Alpha A9, whereas 14 stores sell the Canon EOS M5 and 5 sellers sell the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over One Year Older

The Sony α Alpha A9 is older than the Fujifilm XE3 by one month and older than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III by 15 months.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 5.6% of 359 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A9, whereas 12.7% of 300 customers recommend the Canon EOS M5.

Worse Brand

Sony digital cameras have an average rating of only 91.5%, whereas Canon has an average rating of 95%.

Worse for Landscape Photography

The Sony α Alpha A9 is worse for landscape photography than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.
Worse for Everyday Photography

The Sony α Alpha A9 is worse for everyday photography than the Fuji XT2 and Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. More ...

When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.
Worse for Wildlife Photography

The Sony α Alpha A9 is worse for wildlife photography than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

The cheapest price that we could find for the α Alpha A9 in the UK is £2,319.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Fuji XT2

26% Higher Megapixels

The Fuji XT2 is a 24.3 digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm XE3. That's 0.1MP higher than the Canon EOS M5 and the Sony α Alpha A9 (24.2MP) and 8.2MP higher than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (16.1MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

5 Times Higher Still Image Resolution

The Fuji XT2 supports a still image resolution of 6000 x 4000, however the Canon EOS M5 supports a still image resolution of 2400 x 1344, the Fujifilm XE3 supports a still image resolution of 2000 x 2000, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III supports a still image resolution of 1280 x 960 and the Sony α Alpha A9 supports a still image resolution of 3008 x 1688. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Dustproof

The Fuji XT2 is a dustproof digital camera, whereas the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Freezeproof

The Fuji XT2 is freezeproof, whereas the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 are not. More ...

Freezeproof denotes that the camera is capable of surviving extremely low temperatures before it stops working.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Fuji XT2 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels (as are the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9), however the Canon EOS M5 only has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Fuji XT2 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Canon EOS M5 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). More ...

The Fuji XT2 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and 1280 x 720 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

3 USB Version

The Fuji XT2 supports a 3 USB version, but the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9 support a 2 USB version. More ...

Denotes the version of USB (1, 2 or 3) that the ports on the digital camera use.

Newer versions of USB allow for significantly faster data transfer rates, meaning photos will transfer far faster on a USB 3 connection than a USB 1.

997ms Faster Start-Up Time

The Fuji XT2 has a start-up time of 3, whereas the Canon EOS M5 is a 1,000ms start-up time digital camera (997ms slower). More ...

'Start-up time' measures how long it takes the camera to start working when you press the power button.

Faster start-up times mean the camera will be ready to use faster, which means there is less chance of losing a good shot because your camera was still getting itself ready.

Built-in Flash

The Fuji XT2 has a built-in flash, and so do the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm XE3 and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, however the Sony α Alpha A9 does not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Fuji XT2

A Lot Heavier

The Fuji XT2 has a weight of 457, whereas the Canon EOS M5 is a 380g digital camera (77g lighter), the Fujifilm XE3 is a 287g digital camera (170g lighter), the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a 410g digital camera (47g lighter) and the Sony α Alpha A9 is a 673g digital camera (216g heavier). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Fuji XT2 has a display diagonal of 3, and so do the Fujifilm XE3, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and the Sony α Alpha A9. That's 0.2" smaller than the Canon EOS M5 (3.2"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

580,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Fuji XT2 is a 1 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Fujifilm XE3. That's 580,000 pixels lower than the Canon EOS M5 (1,620,000 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

85% Smaller Viewfinder Screen Size

The Fuji XT2 is a 0.5 viewfinder screen size digital camera, and so does the Sony α Alpha A9. That's 2.5" smaller than the Canon EOS M5 and the Fujifilm XE3 (3"). More ...

Denotes the size of the viewfinder on the digital camera.

The larger the viewfinder screen on your camera, the easier it will be to use.

Only 340 Battery Life

The Fuji XT2 is a digital camera that takes 340 battery life, whereas the Fujifilm XE3 only takes 350 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A9 only takes 650 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Fuji XT2 has received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the Canon EOS M5 scored 81, the Fujifilm XE3 scored 79, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III scored 82 and the Sony α Alpha A9 scored 82.

More Expensive by £401

The Fuji XT2 is £310 more expensive than the Canon EOS M5, £370 more expensive than the Fujifilm XE3 and £401 more expensive than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III.

Not As Many Stockists

The Fuji XT2 is only stocked by 3 shops, however the Canon EOS M5 is stocked by 14 retailers, the Fujifilm XE3 is stocked by 4 retailers, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is stocked by 5 stores and the Sony α Alpha A9 is stocked by 4 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.
Older by Over Two Years

The Fuji XT2 is 13 months older than the Canon EOS M5, 20 months older than the Fujifilm XE3, three years older than the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and 19 months older than the Sony α Alpha A9.

Worse Brand

Fuji digital cameras have an average rating of only 72.6%, however Canon has an average rating of 95%, Fujifilm has an average rating of 87.7%, Olympus has an average rating of 81.3% and Sony has an average rating of 91.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the XT2 in the UK is £749.99 and in total we found 3 prices for it.
