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.
Summary: The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i is an upgrade to the 650D almost in name only, but still combines very good image quality with a comprehensive, well-designed touchscreen interface. AF performance in live view mode and video is an improvement over early Rebel DSLRs, but still lags behind mirrorless options.
Pros: Comprehensive touchscreen interface that is intuitive and efficient, High image quality with good balance between detail and noise reduction in JPEG output, Good subject tracking AF in viewfinder shooting mode (compared to mirrorless competition), 5 fps with ample buffering in JPEG-only mode, Very responsive operation, with menu access available even when buffer is full, Good-looking video output with manual exposure and audio controls, Built-in lens correction for vi...
Cons: Slow 'hybrid AF' performance in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless competition), Slightly higher noise levels than its peers, Default dynamic range lags a bit behind its peers, Using flash with Auto ISO enabled results in ISO 400 even in bright light conditions, Cannot configure common live view and movie mode options independently, AF illuminator integrated into flash (must have flash engaged to use it), Shorter battery life than other DSLRs in its class
Summary: The ratings awarded to a product are derived from a number of tests and calculations, keeping certain important factors in mind. These factors consist of features, performance, quality and value for money. In case of software and some other categories, build quality might be replaced with ease of use or ease of installation. Products are compared with other products in a similar price range or product category.
Excerpt: The Canon EOS 700D sits in a category of DLSR cameras that Canon says is for beginners. Its apparent stable mates include the tiny EOS M, the 1100D and the 100D, each of which the 700D is superior to in various ways. It also replaces the 650D and, in many cases, can be found for similar prices to the older, now discontinued model.
Pros: Hybrid AF system boosts live view and video focusing speeds, great quality stills from low ISO range, great combination of traditional buttons and touchscreen controls
Cons: Small buffer means burst shooting is limited, image noise at high ISO settings, it's a repackaged 650D
Excerpt: The new 18-megapixel Canon EOS 700D digital SLR is described by its maker as being an entry-level product; indeed it sits as the flagship model in that self-prescribed section of Canon's line up. But the specification is sufficiently pimped that the description appears to do it something of a disservice.
Conclusion: The Canon 700D is an excellent DSLR at a good price. It's not a massive step-up from the 650D, but anyone looking to upgrade from an older model should have it high on their shortlist alongside the smaller
Pros: Impressive noise control, Good video capture, Responsive touch screen, Lightweight body
Cons: Limited AF points and buffer hamper action performance, Body can feel a touch plasticky, Not a big upgrade from 650D
Excerpt: If you're looking for a simple digital SLR camera , perhaps even your first digital SLR camera , Canon's EOS 700D is ideal. It comes in a relatively small size, it has an easy control scheme, and it will allow you to take impressive photos from the get-go. See Group test: what's the best interchangeable lens camera?
