Canon Rebel T5i Review
8 July 2015
Conclusion: We'll see when mine arrives, but for now, it looks like a bargain price for a newer version of last year's T4i . If you've found all the time, effort and expense I put into researching and sharing all this, this free website's biggest source of support is when you use any of these links , especially...
Excerpt: The Canon EOS 700D is a brilliant piece of kit: along with its 18-megapixel sensor, it boasts a quiet focusing lens, an easy-to-use touchscreen, a simple button layout and supreme video skills, but is it too much of a good thing?
Canon EOS T5i review: This entry-level DSLR is particularly great for video
14 October 2014
Summary: Adjustable swing-out display has touchscreen for easily navigating shooting options, even in sunlight. But the Live View focus, flash cycling, and general navigation feel sluggish by comparison.
Pros: Display swings out for capturing a variety of angles, Great image quality
Cons: Live View focus seems sluggish, Some physical controls are awkward to navigate
Conclusion: Reviewers call the Canon EOS Rebel T5i a "reliable and versatile entry-level DSLR camera." It replaces the highly reviewed but now-discontinued Rebel T4 and has all of the same features, plus a kit lens option.
Pros: Touch-screen, articulated LCD, Intuitive to use, Good burst shooting speed
Summary: Much like the smartphone market, the camera market has gone through quite a bit of change over the last few years and while many photographers have opted for Micro Four-Thirds and Mirrorless cameras, there are still a large number of photographers who rely on digital single-lens reflex (DSLR)...
Pros: Stereo microphones, Good image quality, Easy-to-use Touchscreen interface, Plenty of creative filters
Cons: Slow autofocus in live view and video, Always on ISO 400 when using flash
Summary: In conjunction with the release of a few more EF-S STM series lenses back in March (2013), Canon also announced the new flagship model to its entry-level EOS Digital Rebel DSLR series, the T5i .
Pros: Image quality is very high, Extremely fast performance in Viewfinder mode, Very fast start-up, Articulated, high-resolution LCD is nice feature for shooting with a tripod, Touchscreen LCD makes it easy to control camera for beginners, Ports included for both HDMI and microphone, Full HD video out...
Cons: Not enough improvements from Rebel T4i, Autofocus works too slowly in Live View mode, creating significant shutter lag, Although autofocus in video mode is improved from past Rebels, it's still slow, Autofocus illuminator lamp only works when the flash is engaged, Camera's on-screen menus should ...
Conclusion: The Canon Rebel T5i was always going to be a controversial camera. With so little changed, you can understand why photographers would react with some confusion. Seen in light of the handgrip issues Canon faced with its earlier T4i -- which the company was quick to fix, we might add -- the followup...
Pros: Less expensive than the camera it replaces, 18-55mm STM lens is very quiet, and above average image quality for a kit lens, Solid body with no panel flex or creak, Good ergonomics, as we've come to expect from the Rebel line, Touch screen is great for settings changes and selecting a focus subjec...
Cons: Only one control dial, LCD monitor is a bit glossy for our liking, Dynamic range not as good as competing models, though HTP helps, Auto and Incandescent white balance very warm in tungsten lighting, Higher than average distortion from the 18-55mm STM lens, Moderately high to high levels of chrom...
