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: Very good photo quality; Excellent high ISO performance; Compact body by D-SLR standards; Large, super high resolution 3-inch LCD display; Live view with contrast detect AF, face detection, composition grids, live histogram, and frame enlargement; Dust reduction system; Generally snappy performance; Plenty of manual controls -- customizable "My Menu"; RAW format supported -- good editing software included; Useful highlight tone priority and Auto Lighting Optimizer...
Summary: I've had the T1i for about almost week now and after some extensive use, here are my thoughts: 1. 15.1 megapixel sensor. Yes, the high megapixel count is impressive, but keep in mind that, as you approach higher resolutions, you need to ensure the lens on the SLR can resolve that much detail. Sadly, the included 18-55mm IS lens is functional, but the high resolution really shows the so-so quality of the lens.
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.
