Summary: Bought this for my wife for Christmas just didnt work out that way because box listed canon t5i on outside even though I marked for gift, she is the one home and gets the deliveries well need I say more she knew what she was getting not very pleased by this. Camera is very nice and pics look great! Package is ok but camera bag is junk, if you are buying this package i would recommend getting a different bag.
Camera is great, but you'll want to start replacing some of the accessories as you get into it

Summary: Got this as a present for my wife, and she loves it. The kit has just about everything someone would need to get started, but you will probably want to start replacing things with higher end products as you get into it more.
Summary: It's a great, lightweight DSLR. I researched before I bid, and this model came out on top. It is a replacement for my Rebel XS/D1000, which served me well. I owned three lenses, which of course, fit perfectly, and the camera operates just like the XS -- but with a notch better results. Canon tech support has also been attentive, detailed and helpful. No hint of sales, just a desire to help.
Summary: I love this camera. It's easy to use and produces incredible shots. As a first time SLR user, I was blown away with how easy it was to produce shots that far surpassed my expectations. I'm going to make sure to have this camera with me for a loonng time.
Summary: This camera is a great value. Excellent picture quality and a much better display screen than the previous models. The stock lenses, as with most canons, are not great. I love the 50mm F1.8 lens, and it's cheap. Put a nice lens on this camera and be amazed! Even with the stock ones, the quality is very nice. Download Magic Lantern and the options are limitless.
Summary: I bought this camera two and a half years ago. I have been using it as my main camera. I have no problem with it at all. The material is good. The quality of photos taken from this camera is very good. This camera is the predecessor of T3i (ancestor of T4i, T5i). Because it was released long time ago, so there is no flip display (articulated screen) nor touch screen yet in this model. The image processor is DIGIC 4. But the rest is almost the same with its successors.
Excerpt: I bought this camera because I was going to be traveling to South Africa, and I wanted a good camera to take some amazing photos with. I’ve only ever used one of the more compact cameras before this (a Nikon Coolpix,) so I was completely blown away at how …
Summary: If you're looking for a truly affordable camera body with great quality photos (including in low light situations depending on your lens), then this is it. I'd previously owned a Canon Rebel XS, and was pretty happy with it. However, I wanted to get better low-light performance on it (6,400 ISO vs. 1,600), as well as be able to shoot video. I didn't see the point in going for an option that shoots 720p, since after all it's 2014.
