Excerpt: --- :"-| Just purchased the Canon Rebel 5Ti from Samclub (Bundle Kit) for $1000 ....yes one thousand dollars!......I have always owned a point and shoot that I carried in my purse at all times which honestly did a great job!.....My sister in law owns a Canon Rebel 3Ti and when she was posting her photos on facebook, I was like WOW these photos are SO CRISP!!!!....
Summary: Package arrive on time (as ususal with Amazon) The bundle comes with a lot extras. But the main lens the EF-S 18-55 was not there. There was a EF-MM in the box but that lens does not fit the T5i. A call to Amazon customer service was a nightmare. The representitive was rude spoke broken english that require repeating information several times. After trying to speak to this person for about 45 minutes nothing was resolved.
Conclusion: Slow focus and sometimes in and out focus for few sec in video recording most of time. Start recording with out of focus, and it stays out of focus a few sec like it has in sleep. Press refocus again to wake up the autofocus, and it is then focus in and out over 5 sec in recording. What a joke Canon ! I have to use manual focus in shooting video. You must come out new firmware to fix the problem or you are losing a good name !
Excerpt: Mother board failed after less then 2 months of use.<br /><br />Had to send it back to Canon for replacement. First failure I have had with a Rebel camera - do not know if it is a problem with the T5i series, but the entire electronics of this unit failed
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Summary: Super déçue....déjà 2 retours pour cet appareil qui n'a jamais correctement marché : un premier retour concernant un problème sur le flash, remplacé par Amazon par un 2ème produit qui présente cette fois une "erreur 30" qui serait récurrente sur le modèle.... Au final, un achat en août 2013 pour un appareil qui n'a jamais pu utilisé.....
