The Canon EOS Rebel T5 is a solid entry-level DSLR with a price that will please the budget-conscious. It improves upon its predecessor, the T3, by upping the HD video resolution to 1080 x 1920 and the sensor's resolution to 18 megapixels. The EOS T5 is also outfitted with a 3-inch, 460,000 dot LCD. Beginners will like the Basic+ control menu, Creative Auto, and Creative Filters, while more advanced shooters will appreciate the T5's manual controls and customization options. Frequently accessed settings are available through the camera's Q-menu, and shooters of all skill levels will find their way around the T5's interface quickly.

Rebel T5 - a beginner's perspective after 2 months.
On the one hand, it's the first camera I ever owned so I can't bring a whole lot of experience to the review. But I can at least rate how user-friendly it is to beginners. This is considered the most basic, inexpensive beginner DSLR you can buy from Canon, unless you get "last year's model" ...you can get a really good deal on a Rebel T3 for something like $300, $350 bucks. I paid $550 for this camera with the kit lens. If you already have a Rebel and were thinking "should I upgrade?" then ...
Review on Canon EOS 1200DSLR
Canon EOS 1200DSLR is very handy and easy to use. For amateurs, its the good enough for all aspects as its price is very reasonable.
Hi, I researched many cameras and read many forums before buying it. I plan to buy point-shoot camera But,finally got canon 1200d bcoz its good entry level Dslr. Adv: Image quality, sensor size, Mega pixels, ISO, Auto mode and Advance auto mode 1080-60fps video, internal and external flash, microphone- which helps to record clear audio with video Cons: No flip LCD and Image stablization
Looking to get an entry level camera ($300-$400) and have been reading about "true resolution"- size of the sensor/pixel density... Example: FinePix SL1000 16mp = 9.7 mp Panasonic Lumix FZ70 16mp = 9.7mp Canon Rebel T3 12.2mp = 12.2mp Is this true? Would the T3 take better quality pics? I would be using a tripod and have all the editing software (PS, Perfect Effects, etc) Any suggestions would be apprectiated.
I think you are referring to true resolution defined by snapsort which is, according to me, a bit nonsense. It is the resolution at average shooting conditions, with an aperture like f3.5. It takes into account diffraction, so at the same aperture a smaller sensor will be more affected by diffraction. But this is nonsense not to take into account the lens max aperture of each camera !! If you shoot a picture at f16 with a FF camera, you are likely to use a much lower aperture with a 1/2.3" sensor. They should not compare the resolution with a similar f-number. Their true resolution concept is very specific to this site and is is my opinion a very bad idea. This is not at all relevant. Continue Reading
The sensor on the T3 is larger and ultimately offers more potential for high ISO work. However both high ISO capability and potential resolution are not really measures of an image's quality, IMO. A good visual composition usually far outweighs any technical factors. Continue Reading
That's an interesting perspective to take, but I am surprised at using the APS-C sensor as 1:1 instead of dividing by its crop factor as well :) I'm not sure I would equate smaller sensors as being equivalent to a larger sensor at a lower resolution, but noise reduction for low light does reduce effective image resolution. In any case, sensor size has its biggest impact on low light or dark portions of brightly lit scenes, especially if your exposure is too low and you brighten in post. The FZ70 16MP is real used outside, in bright light, but there's also equivalent aperture to consider, and lens sharpness. Even inside the FZ70 might beat the T3i with its older kit lens, but be much worse than a prime lens. Continue Reading
canon t5 vs t5i question
Can i use a canon 55/250 mm IS lens with a canon t5 or do i need to buy the t5i for best results?? Thanks
Yes The T5i has more to offer IMO. See the comparisons on the Canon site and see what each one offers to suit your shooting needs. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras?pageKeyCode=65&category=0901e0248006113c&compare=0901e0248082124c&compare=0901e02480b0661d Continue Reading
Canon Rebel ?
I am a new photographer and do not have very much experience. I am wanting to get into photography more and possibly go into professional photography in the future. My budget is currently $500-1000 for my first camera and lenses. I am considering the canon rebel t4i, t5, or t5i. What camera would you recommend between these three or what other camera would you recommend? I am looking at purchasing the Canon Rebel T5 bundle that is on the following link: http://slickdeals.net/blackfriday/stores/best-buy/adscans/12962 and then maybe buying another lens later on. Is this a good deal in your opinion and would it be a good camera that I could learn a lot on and then upgrade to a different camera if needed in a couple of years? Thank you!
There's no MFA on the 40D either..........the 50D was the first non-1 series to feature it Continue Reading
My first DSLR was a Canon T3 kit with the 18-55 USM and 75-300 lenses. I was quite disappointed by the IQ and focus of the 75-300 lens and sold it 3 months later for $100. A year later I bought a Sigma 17-70 Contemporary lens to replace the 18-55, as I found the latter's reach a little short for a walk around lens. A few months later I bought a Canon 60D body for a larger MP sensor, more frame per second shooting, and greater control over settings. The T3 and 18-55 sit idle, as back-ups that seldom get called. If you are serious about getting into photography vs just taking nice pictures, I would pass on the T5. IMHO, a T3i or T41 refurbished by Canon, or a refurbished Canon 60D would be the best body to start with. Any of those should satisfy your needs for a couple of years, and still let you afford a lens with good IQ. Continue Reading
Hi there Runnergirl'. Welcome to the wonderful world of photography (and Photography Forums!) :-) I'll start my post right off with a strong statement, hehe! ;-) IMHO the best way to select a DSLR is to check them out in person . They all handle and operate quite differently, even within the same line, even from the same manufacturer. A camera is one of those special tools you will become close friends with (or conversely part ways with if you've by chance made the wrong choice). So go play with them. Before you make your mind up completely. Yes you've got a good jump on the selection process by comparing the individual specs, and also (IMHO) by coming to the Forums for advice. You'll receive many different answers here of course, because everyone has found their own best mate' . That fact alone tells you why it's so important to choose in person . Sure, the truth of the matter is that anybody can learn photography on any DSLR. Heck, there are many of us who learned photography on ... Continue Reading
