Summary: We’ve seen quite a number of cameras of all shapes and sizes launched over the past few months, and this time around, Canon has been generous enough to send us a DSLR that is meant for photography newbies, or if you’re just looking for an affordable camera for travel and casual use, in the form of...
Pros: Good camera for photography newbies
Cons: Obvious noise and discoloration at higher ISOs
Summary: The Canon EOS Rebel T5 may be the latest DSLR from Canon but it does not introduce new features and technology. On the contrary, this is the lowest end model and the one with the least features. It is not even the smallest, that honor goes to the just reviewed Rebel SL1 Canon EOS Rebel SL1 .
Pros: Low image-noise, Good metering system, Accurate autofocus system, Exposure-Priority Live-View implementation, Generally responsive, Light and compact
Cons: General image softness, Too few AF points, Dynamic-range less than peers, Automatic WB struggles in low-light, Small and dim OVF, Buttons too flush
Summary: In February of this year, Canon announced their newest entry-level DSLR, the EOS Rebel T5 . Some of you will obviously know the EOS Rebel T5 i , which was released last year. Much like the T3 versus the T3 i , the T5 represents a stripped down version of the T5 i , or possibly even the SL1 .
Pros: All shooting modes produce accurate exposures and overall pleasing images, Live View shooting allows for compact-like point-n-shoot capabilities, Good overall performance, Great overall image quality, Pop-up flash is always ready if you need it, Large 3.0-inch LCD is easy to see in most lighting ...
Cons: Lacking the versatile and useful convenience features like WiFi, No continuous AF shooting videos, LCD does not tilt or swivel, Only 1 command dial on the camera body, No external audio input, No built-in Image Stabilization
Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Review: Good for Beginners
23 July 2014
Summary: You can't really fault Canon for not changing up much in the beginner-friendly Rebel series over the years. The camera maker appears to have struck a chord with this line; Canon's Rebel T3i still ranks as one of the most popular DSLRs in the industry.
Pros: Compact, light body; Easy-to-access controls; Excellent image quality in good light
Cons: Some graininess at high ISOs and in low light; Poor autofocus in video; Some lag when taking multiple consecutive shots
Conclusion: For what it is and whom it’s intended for, the T5 is a decent camera. We wouldn’t go out of our way to recommend it, especially since there are less expensive options available like the recently reviewed, lighter weight Sony Alpha A5000 .
Summary: Canon EOS 1200D review: Canon has upgraded its entry-level DSLR along with a new iOS and Android app for guiding you through the process of using it. The new Canon EOS 1200D is the successor to the EOS 1100D and situs just below the 100D as the first camera in the line-up.
