Very suitable for product photography - Good $ value
14 July 2013
Summary: For what I wanted to do, this camera was perfect. Hi Res photos of book and record jackets, no moving, no video just good white balance and color fidelity. Google said that $ for $ the extra to go from 15mb to 18mb in the T5i was not worth the extra for what I wanted to do. I'm happy. I gave features: 5 +'s because it had more than enough features for what I wanted to do.
Summary: This is a good camera to learn on or for multipurpose use. The menu is easy to figure out and if purchased with the 18-55mm lens should be enough to get you started. Except for cleaning kit which has to be purchased separately, the only other things you will need depend upon what you take pictures of and your usage. I bought the camera to learn more functionality outside Auto settings. This is a manual/auto focus camera it was different at first.
Excerpt: The Canon Rebel T1i Digital Camera is a great DSLR camera for a great price. The camera itself takes really good pictures with comparable image quality. I tend not to recommend this camera to a lot of my friends because they are not photography buffs. This camera is often hard for the beginner to use, and beyond the auto function, the limitless options, customizations, and potential of this camera is often unused and untapped with a beginner.
Excerpt: I love my Canon T1i. I went from a Canon point & shoot camera to this dlsr. It's not too heavy or bulky like some DLSR's can be and it fits my hand nicely. Once I understood all the different settings, it was fairly easy to use the right setting for the photo that I wanted to capture. It's 10 megapixels so it is professional quality and the photo's look really great.
