  • 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

  • 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
