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
Summary: So what new features does the T5 / 1200D have to tempt the buying public? There's a new 18 Megapixel sensor providing an increase of 6 Megapixels on its predecessor, and a slightly bigger 3 inch screen with
a bump in the resolution to 460k dots.
Pros: Excellent image quality and noise performance., 1080p HD video with manual exposure., 3 inch 460k LCD screen., Creative Auto mode., Free interactive tutorials for your smartphone.
Cons: Smallish optical viewfinder., No effects filters., No scene detect in Live View., No continuous AF for movies., No external microphone input.
Summary: When you buy a Canon, you're buying into an entire family of products, from lenses to flashes and other accessories. The Rebel T5 is an inexpensive way to begin shooting professional quality images with a Canon DSLR.
Pros: This camera is affordable.
Cons: A lower quality sensor makes for average image quality.
