Stunning Photos and Videos with Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera

I first met the Canon EOS M5 in December last year over dinner, and I wasn’t very attracted to it then. But when I got to try it over a few weeks since March this year, I’m getting quite attached to this upgraded model from the EOS M3 I bought some time back. The camera is faster, better and steadier when shooting video. If only it was a full-frame mirrorless, I would have bought it right away. For now, I’m still sitting on the fence and may eventually buy it for work purposes.

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider the EOS M5 as your next camera upgrade, and photos taken with it by me. Disclaimer: I’m not a professional, so don’t expect magazine spread quality shots ok!

Versatile EF-M18-150 IS STM kit lens

The kit sent for my review came with the EF-M18-150 IS STM, the range of this lens is suitable for everyday, anytime, anything also can shoot kinda lens. I could capture the happiness in my girl without getting wet when she was far from the edge of swimming pool. If you zoom into it, you can even see clearly the water droplets around her hair in the shot below. [Click here for the full resolution shot]

The zoom lens, even when zoomed into the maximum, gives me very good control and stability when shooting with a single hand.

Fast and Steady Won My Heart

The Canon PowerShot EOS M5 packs with Dual Pixel CMOS AF gives me very fast autofocusing in every shot, making photographing kids much easier. I can tap anywhere on the touchscreen to pick the focus point with my left finger while framing the shot with the camera on my right hand. There’s no need to wait nor feel that you will miss a shot because autofocusing is really quick on the camera.

Superb Low-Light Shots

You can shoot at up to ISO 25600 on the EOS M5, giving you superb low-light control even without the use of a tripod.

Steady Video without any Gimbal nor Tripod

I love shooting videos with the EOS M5 and the new EF-M18-150 IS STM lens. With the combination of IS (image stabilizer) lens and in-camera stabilisation, shooting movie is very steady even when on the move. I’ve created a reel of randoms shots taken on the move with the EOS M5 and the EF-M18-150 IS STM.

The Canon PowerShot EOS M5 is at the top of the existing mirrorless line-up for Canon. If you need an all-rounded lightweight and yet powerful and stable camera for photos and videos, you can consider this camera as an upgrade or a companion for your Canon DSLR.  Find out more about the Canon EOS M5 on Canon’s website (I suggest you check out the brochure for more detailed writeup), and you can purchase it online at Canon online shop and have it delivered for free to your doorstep. There’s $80 online warranty cashback promotion and mother’s day free gifts too if you buy online. Psst… have you spotted our mini feature on their website?

TLMUnbox: Sudio, Earphones from Sweden

High fidelity sound is the in thing now, some call it Hi-Res audio, while some call it HD music. For me, I’m calling it awesome sound! Though Sudio VASA isn’t marketed as a HD audio earphone, but from my experience with it so far, the quality is as good and definitely more enjoyable than your standard earphones (like my iPhone earpiece lah!).

Before I share the good things, here’s a quick scroll-through of what’s inside the box of Sudio VASA earphones

Beautiful packaging though a little too big I feel for a earphone. But it sure adds to the premium feel for the product.
Inside of the box – Sudio VASA in one box and the leather case, accessories and manual in another.
Take everything out of the box and you’ll see this printed in the box. Have your followed Sudio on Facebook and Instagram already? #sudio
Sudio VASA Blue with matching leather case. Love the quality of the flat cord and awesome gold touches on the VASA.

I had an enjoyable breakfast plugging into music on Spotify with the Sudio VASA. Loving the depth of sound I get from it.

Now let’s talk about what I like about the Sudio VASA…

One great thing about Sudio VASA is that it comes with a full–feature 3-button remote and mic for both Android and iOS. This means you can use the VASA as a phone earpiece too and hear your caller in crystal clear sound, I hope I do not call anyone who might be in the toilet when I’m using my VASA…. oh the details I may hear… #stunned.

VASA is one of Sudio’s premium models, to which a new generation 10,2 mm driver has been developed. The 10,2 mm driver has been tuned to deliver extremely clear tunes with a natural bass. With VASA, you are able to hear every instrument in your favourite songs, just as if you were inside the recording studio. The new driver is their best so far. Imagine hearing every detail, in every instrument, in every song, giving you a unique and unforgettable sound experience. Isn’t this what many other brands call high definition audio? Well, it sure feels the same.

A little fun fact about the history of the name. The Sudio VASA has been named after King Gustaf Vasa, who lead the Swedish War of Liberation against King Christian II of Denmark during the 16th century.

Speedy order and delivery! Thanks to the good folks from Sudio, I received a sexy blue Sudio VASA for iOS at my door within 4 days from my order. Super fast!

I’m loving my VASA Blue!
