Traversing Hong Kong with the EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera

Owning a mirrorless EOS M5 camera can mean a few things: a small camera body which you can easily store in your handbag or backpack; a 24-megapixel Dual Pixel APS-C sensor lets you take crisp photos with better autofocus; and a 3.2-inch touchscreen control that can be tilted upwards and downwards for shooting unusual angles. This time, we bring along the compact and portable EOS M5 to Hong Kong, a vibrant city that boasts everything from bustling streets to breathtaking nature, to tell a story through photos. Check out the photos taken with EOS M5 below.
