The EOS 700D/ Rebel T5i is essentially unchanged compared to its predecessor, sporting an 18MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor with built-in phase detection autofocus, a DIGIC 5 processor, a 9-point cross-type AF system, and Full HD movie mode. Differences are limited to live preview of Creative Filters, a new mode dial that turns 360 degrees, a new body finish and a new 18-55mm STM lens to better serve Hybrid AF in movie mode.

The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i is an upgrade to the 650D almost in name only, but still combines very good image quality with a comprehensive, well-designed touchscreen interface. AF performance in live view mode and video is an improvement over early Rebel DSLRs, but still lags behind mirrorless options.
Enthusiasts looking for the manual control and image quality of a DSLR but who'd appreciate the option to use a touchscreen interface.

Nikon User Switches to a Rebel T5i Over Tethering Issue and Poor Nikon Support
Hello, I've been a Nikon user for over 10 years. I work in a research lab and mainly use cameras for light box product work with the camera tethered to a computer. I finally had enough with Nikon when our camera would not connect to and be recognized by Nikon Camera Control Pro software. I called Nikon support and they said they would take the case and call back shortly, however I never heard from them again. The Nikon Camera Control Pro software is a bad joke and a frustrating waste of time. ...
700D/T5i Great Camera
I used T1i for a month while waiting 700D arrive and it was quite interesting going from a bridge fto a dslr. After a week with T5i can say it is an amazing machine. I thought the overall performance far exceeds the T1i , the difference is not small . I also used the T2i from my brother a while and is also mush faster. The grappling of the camera is very good and the hand strap that i bought made it perfect. She responds very quickly and with the memory card Sandisk Extreme 45MB / s ( 32GB is ...
Great product - AF for Sigma lenses don't seem to function
I've recently upgraded to Canon EOS 700D and indeed so far I'm very happy with it. However it confuses me why it wouldn't auto-focus my old Sigma 10-20mm and Sigma 18-200mm lenses neither in still nor in movie mode unlike my very old 350D did.

Canon Rebel T5i vs. Canon 6D
So I've been getting back into photography after being away for 8 years and without doing much research picked up a Rebel T5i. I'm fairly happy with it's performance and have been able to capture some epic shots with it. I've saved up and now have enough that I could either get a better L series Lens for my T5i or replace it with a 6D. I like the clarity and image quality of the 6D as I tend to pixel peep... I havn't made huge prints of any of my stuff or anything like that. I guess the question I have is: Will my lenses look better on a FF camera than on the crop body (specifically the 24-105) I know there will be a difference in range as I currently get 1.6x the focal length. I don't really care about the weatherproofing. I just want to be able to take stunning pictures. Here's a few I've taken so far with a bit of post processing... Please give me your 2c. My guess is that people are going to say get the better lens and later upgrade to FF once I know what I'm doing better. I ...
Unfortunately there is no easy answer. your first pic suggests you could do better with an APS-C sensor ( for better reach) and second picture suggests you could use a FF sensor for noise and IQ. Suggest you to rent a 6D/24-105 combo and see if its worth it. Or, borrow from a friend to see if you really see the difference in Images to worth spending money on. Continue Reading
I did the "upgrade" from T4i (basically the same as T5i) to 6D about 6 months ago. Although 6D with a 24-105L is my main gear now, the T4i still gets used often for nature photography in good light due to the crop factor. Your second photo will probably look better on a 6D: noise at ISO 1250 will be virtually imperceptible, and the washed out bright spot on top right won't be as harsh (I think). The first one will be a wash--you'll have to crop on the 6D to get the same frame, wiping out the resolution advantage, and at base ISO noise and dynamic range aren't really an issue. Continue Reading
Normally I would say buy a better lens, but since you already own the 24-105, I would say to definitely buy the 6D. I own the 6D and the IQ is outstanding. Your second pic would look 100x better from the 6D. Your first I think would also look better even if you had to crop the image. I'm not talking about a slight advantage, it smacks you in the face. The DR, the color reproduction, the high ISO IQ. You do lose the built in flash and the crop factor. I kept my 7D for action shots and for extra reach when needed, but ISO400 on that looks like ISO3200 on the 6D. Good luck! Continue Reading
18-55 STM vs 18-135 STM for T5i travel photos?
Going on a trip to Europe for 2 weeks this fall and was deciding which lens (18-55 STM or 18-135 STM) to get with my T5i for landscape and general travel photos. Side Note: The 18-135 STM lens is only $130 more than the 18-55 STM with the deal I'm looking at. I'm also planning on purchasing the 40mm STM pancake lens for it. Any tips, opinions or advice is appreciated!
Thanks for all your great advice and I loved looking through all your pictures. I decided on the 18-135 lens! I planned on bringing it out on days that I wanted to be lower profile. So I think I'd leave one lens locked up in my hotel. I still have to purchase a carrying case for my camera, so I guess I will have to see if I'd just carry it with me. How do you typically bring your camera with you? On strap with you, or do you bring a camera bag? And did you ever feel scared of having your camera stolen while in Europe? Continue Reading
I've used my SL1 with the 18-55 for a couple of weeks in Italy last October, where I have been a number of times since the mid 70's, and never felt the need for a longer lens. The streets in many Italian towns are very narrow, and the architecture monumental. You need wider rather than longer for Italy. The 18 mm wide end works great. Wider than that give a lot of perspective distortion, which I personally don't like. So I consider the lens great for Italy. I took my 18-135 to Paris this past May, and enjoyed it for longer views where there is a lot more room to compose. You can see how these two lenses worked in both nstances on the links below. I also had my G1X which I used extensivly in museums in Paris, and some churches in Italy. So some of those images are mixed in with the 18-135's on the SL1. EXIF data below the images indicates camera / lens used. Be aware that all Italian state museums, with exception of the Vatican, no longer allow photography of any kind, and a few ...

I have a large bag that can fit pretty much all my gear - something that I can put in a car. For traveling lighter, I have a LowePro Flipside 200. It's a nifty little backpack that is quite secure. However, it wits a midsize DSLR body plus 2-3 lenses and/or a flash. For example, I can fit (tight squeeze though), a 60D with 17-55 f/2.8 mounted, a 70-200 f/2.8, and a 580EX2 flash. If you use a pack like that for a T5i with 18-135, you can configure most of pack to hold various other essentials. For carrying, I use a BlackRapid RS-7. I have an extra lug on the tripod collar of my 70-200 for better balance. Far as cards go, I mainly use 32GB UHS-I Transcend cards (red label), of which I got four. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/876410-REG/Transcend_ts32gsdhc10u1_32GB_SDHC_Memory_Card.html Also have a number of older 16GB cards of various speeds, but I rarely use them now. I have one extra battery, but if I anticipate a day with lots of shooting and charge in advance, battery is ... Continue Reading
What is the best camera for a visually-impaired photographer?
Hello, guys and gals! I am thinking about buying a DSLR/mirrorless camera and I need your help in choosing one. If I had to describe my vision problem, I would say that normal vision is like a long telephoto lens, while my eyes are wide-angle primes. I see everything much smaller than people with normal vision, but colors and focus/sharpness are not a problem. I would like to find a camera more suited for me, but it also MUST be a good interchangeable-lens camera, I won't buy another compact again. I bought the Fujifilm FinePix S4000 2 years ago and I only like one thing about it: its looong zoom (one of the longest at the time, equiv. to 700mm+ on a FF.) Image quality is bad even in good light, white balance and focus are terrible in low light. I went for a cheaper "superzoom" and I regretted not buying a DSLR. I compose using both the LCD screen and the EVF, since I rely on autofocus and I see well enough to frame the picture. However, it would be nice if I had a larger viewfinder. ...
Viewfinders have three ratings: Magnification, coverage, and crop factor. The image size is: Magnification * coverage / crop factor If you want a big image, you want a low crop factor. Full frame is the way to go. If you cannot do full frame, a decent EVF will beat even the nicest APS OVFs. A Sony A77 viewfinder has a magnification of 0.72x. For comparison, a D7100 is 0.61x. A 70D is 0.59x, and only 95% coverage. An A6000 is 0.70x. I have good vision, and I really don't enjoy using APS OVFs all that much, even on the very high end. If you step down to a 100D or a D3200, the OVFs are painfully bad -- 0.54x and 0.5x respectively with 95% coverage. On the Sony end, I would look much more at the A-mount than E-mount. A-mount lens options are probably better in your price range than Canon/Nikon, at least if you want image stabilization. Wide aperture primes on A-mount all become stabilized. That's super-nice.

Difficult to say what you need to assist you with using a camera, but I cam across the following for videography. It clips over the lcd screen on your camera and magnifies the display a little. Might be worth visiting a store somewhere to try one out. I've only seen one on a canon camera, but am sure they are available for other makes and models.. http://paulmichaelegan.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/2-8x-lcd-view-finder-viewer-extender-v2-for-canon-550d-nikon-d90/ Hope that helps a little!

Thanks. I've seen a video of something like that on Youtube. But I'd probably end up not using it because it makes the camera so much bigger. Maybe a magnified eyepiece would be better? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/387769-REG/Nikon_4793_DK_17M_Magnifying_Eyepiece_for.html Continue Reading
