Very suitable for product photography - Good $ value

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: This was my first real camera that I've used. I've been using it for about 3 years now and it's a real work horse. It's a great step up from a point-and-shoot and I would recommend this camera to anyone who is looking to get into photography but it's looking for a wallet-burning sensation. Problems: -No External Flash Controls -Low Light can be problematic -Battery life is alright.
Fantastic camera, excellent quality and excellent price. AAA+++

Summary: Excellent camera, quality and value for the money. I had a Canon EOS Rebel so this one was for my daughter who lives in FL. She is learning slowly but the best feature of the Canon EOS Rebel is it's so very easy to learn and to find the features you want. I would recommend this camera to everyone who is an amateur or someone with mid-to higher level experience.
