extras aren't worth the extra cost

Summary: Camera and 75-300mm lens are great, this is my first DSLR so definitely much better than the old point and shoot. The extra battery is nice along with the 32G SD card. The rest of the extra add ons aren't worth much. The bag isn't big enough to even fit the camera with the 300mm lens attached let alone being able to take both lenses. The wireless shutter release is not compatible with the T5 so that's worthless. Lastly, the 2 tripods aren't very stable.
Excerpt: considered the T5i, but for the price and features this was a better value. Also small footprint so easy to hold and carry around. Videos are excellent quality but be sure to focus first. A lot of manual adjustments but Automatic takes great pictures too. Like that you can use either viewfinder or direct view.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: for a beginner I would recommend this camera, what I like about it for me is that it is lightweight great f0r hiking in the mountains. Why I did get it was because of the great price on a Black Friday Sale. I have paid that much for a point and shoot.
Summary: Phenomenal in every way - everything in the product description was included, and after testing them out one by one, I can safely say that everything is working up to speed. This is an absolute steal.
Summary: I couldn't have asked for a better bundle! I am overwhelmed by the quality of the camera and accessories. I feel that the price was extremely reasonable especially for amount of products that came in this bundle as well as the quality. The shipping topped it off as it arrived 2 days after I ordered it. I can not speak for the performance of the camera or accessories at this time as it is a Christmas gift to my son.
Excerpt: My friends at Consumer Reports led me to believe the T5 and the T5i were quite similar, except for the articulating LCD which I now believe is a real convenience at times and probably worth an extra $100. I have David Busch's book on the Rebel T5 / 1200D that tells me far more than Canon's User Manual does. It seems the T5 is a new entry level camera that does a fine job as a point-and-shoot with the option of changing lenses.
