Canon EOS Rebel T5i Review
28 October 2013
Excerpt: The powerful Canon EOS Rebel T5i doesn't offer a large number of improvements over last year's Rebel T4i, but if you have an older Canon Rebel DSLR camera, the T5i is going to give you a great set of features for the price.
Excerpt: 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 . For those who know about last year's popular T4i , the T5i appears to offer little improvement, save for a few extra Creative Filters, which stylize still frames and videos, and a slightly different Mode Dial, adding the ability to select a specific Scene Mode -- like Handheld...
Summary: The Canon Rebel T5i has all of the professional features and functions that will help you take incredible images wherever you are. This DSLR camera will indeed be a great camera now and later, even as you become a seasoned photographer.
Pros: The ISO ranges are extensive on this entry-level DSLR camera.
Cons: You do not get live chat as a customer support option.
Summary: Canon’s latest flagship Rebel remains as a great choice for an entry-level DSLR. Compare it with Nikon’s D3200, and you’ll face a choice between the Nikon’s greater resolution (2710 at ISO 100) and higher noise (Unacceptable noise levels by ISO 3200) and the Canon’s lower resolution, lower noise, and 1-fps faster bursts. The Rebel T5i also focused faster than the Nikon at every light level in our test.
Excerpt: The Canon Rebel T5i (aka 700D outside the US) follows the solid Rebel T4i , which followed the solid Rebel T3i , and so on. The thing about about the Rebel series in the recent iterations is that it seems like Canon is getting rather lazy and predictable with its flagship cameras in the Rebel lineup.
Excerpt: The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is essentially the same camera as its predecessor, and it’s still a solid performer. (3.5 out of 5) Pros Fast to start and shoot Sharp, articulated touch-screen LCD Compact Nearly silent video autofocus when used with STM lenses 4fps shooting Good image detail at high ISOs Fast autofocus Cons Small
Pros: Fast to start and shoot, Sharp, articulated touch-screen LCD, Compact, Nearly silent video autofocus when used with STM lenses, 4fps shooting, Good image detail at high ISOs, Fast autofocus
Cons: Small pentamirror viewfinder, Very limited burst shooting in Raw mode, Video autofocus is choppy with non-STM lenses
Conclusion: While some may scoff at the vari-angle touchscreen, we say don't knock it until you've tried it. It's extremely responsive and it promotes creativity. We are becoming increasingly used to touchscreen control on a range of other devices, so it seems odd that Nikon hasn't yet employed the technology in a DSLR.
Excerpt: I'm going to do a lot of "borrowing" in this review. And I'll start off by borrowing the opening line from both the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D DSLR review and the Canon EOS Rebel T3i/600D DSLR review :
