    Rebels ROCK: T5 vs T5i, May 25, 2014

    (#1 Hall OF FAME REVIEWER)

    This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens (Electronics)
    The Rebel line of Canons has produced some incredible cameras such as the T3. These are considered “budget” or beginner DSLR’s but in actuality, they are packed with features and unless you are a pro, you won’t need much more in a DSLR. They also have the ability to take video.

    There is a T5 and a T5i and it’s not easy to tell what the differences are. CAREFUL! They are not the same, and the T5 is less expensive, though certainly a GREAT “entry level” DSLR. (Digital single lens reflex–a camera you can change lenses to add a telephoto or a wide angle lens like the pros do.)

    The MAIN difference between the two is in the screen resolution: 460,000 dots for the T5 vs 1,040,000 dots in the T5i. That’s a big difference. If you do a lot of video, the T5i would be better. You can blow up your pictures on the screen much larger.

    Another screen difference: the T5i swivel screen is better for video (swings out like a video camera.) The touch screen makes manual settings a breeze. The T5 has a fixed screen like the T3.

    The T5 is lighter (480g or 0.94lbs vs 580g or 1.27lbs)

    Doing a lot of low-light work? The ISO range of the T5i is larger: T5 100 – 12,800 vs T5i 100 – 25,600

    The T5 has about 100 shots MORE of battery life than the T5i.

    If you are shooting a lot of video with a DSLR, you’ll probably want the T5i. If you are shooting a lot of low-light, you may also want the T5i. If you want a very light camera, with more battery life and to save some money, the T5 is excellent. If you don’t do video AT ALL, the T3 is cheaper still, and has more battery life and is an ounce lighter. The video resolution on the T5 is better than the T3 and there is an auto-contrast detection.

    Summary: Video and still shooters–T5i is best, T5 is good. T3 is best for still shots and is cheaper, has more battery life.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Unlike many of the reviewers on here, I don’t have another DSLR camera to compare this one to. It’s my first, but what I want to do is approach this review from the pov of a first-time DLSR user. I kinda have no choice, eh? But what I mean is, instead of going on about specifics, I am looking at how easy was it for a beginner like me to use this camera.

    The short and simple answer: Very easy.

    First, let me say I have had several Canon compact point-and-shoot digital cameras. My current one is the Powershot SX280 HS, which I LOVE. One thing I love about Canon is that they tend to set up their cameras very similarly between models, so I had no trouble getting used to where buttons were and what different symbols mean and how to scroll through menus.

    Some of the features I really like about the T5 are the weight, the fit in my hand, the large view screen, the button placement, the battery life, the ease of use of the software for uploading pictures, and the picture quality is great.

    The main thing is, I was able to pull this camera out of the box and just start using it.

    More specifically, I had a blast taking macro shots. I am a total nerd when it comes to insects and such, so I love taking close-ups. Not just bugs, but all kinds of things. This camera is great for those kinds of shots. Great for portrait and distance as well, but this was the feature that had me scouring my yard for cool stuff to shoot.

    I do agree with others about the slowness of the auto focus. However, it does kind of depend on what you’re shooting and what the lighting is like. In nice afternoon sun, the speed was quite good for me.

    This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens (Electronics)

    To me the Canon EOS Rebel line of DSLR cameras are the best for those wanting to get into more advanced photography. The main reasons are they allow you full manual controls and the interchangeable lenses. These allow you to change so much of how the cameras functions in different lighting situations. And over the last five years Canon digital SLR cameras have become very capable of 1080p high definition video cameras also. Over the course of this review I get a mention some basics about digital photography that can help you if you’re a first-time camera buyer.

    NOTE: You can get the older models like the T3i and save a few bucks but still get the full manual controls like this camera. Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens The thing about the T3i is that it’s all around a better camera and even more advanced than this one. It has an articulating LCD screen and the LCD screen has more pixels I really recommend it over this camera and it’s even cheaper. I put it on par even with the Canon T5i. so be sure to check it out I think the T3i is the camera to get at the present time.

    1. The number one reason to get a camera like this is the full manual controls over such things as shutter speed and aperture. Most point-and-shoot digital cameras that you can buy today for under $200 don’t allow you to adjust these things but really if you’re serious about photography learning how shutter speed and aperture work together to create photographs is very important. And the fact that this camera allows you to control these features and so many more manually means you can make great photographs. In point number two I will explain how shutter speed and aperture work together but just know that they are very important and having control of them means you’re in a make better photos. Notice I said make better photos instead of take better photos that is because by learning how shutter speed and aperture work together you will be able to create photos where regular point-and-shoot cameras would fail.

    2. Interchangeable lenses are a MAJOR reason you will want this camera. If you search Canon lenses on Amazon you will see that they offer a wide variety of lenses for this camera. Take for example this 50 mm lens that everybody calls the nifty 50: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens The best part about this amazing lens is that it’s less than $100. And the cool thing is you can get a lot of different lenses relatively cheap for these Canon cameras.

    The lens that comes with this camera is ok but it’s lowest f-stop is 5 and that is bad in low light situations. I definitely recommend the 50mm linked above as it helps learning the manual controls of this camera.

    HOW APERTURE AND SHUTTER SPEED WORK: (The following was taken from my 50mm lens review but it walks you through understanding shutter speed and aperture)
    Here I’ll explain how the f-stop or aperture priority works on digital SLR cameras. Basically the aperture is a circle inside the lens that as you go up in your f-stop from 1.8 to 2.2 to 3.0 and beyond it shrinks the size of this circle in the lens. The shrinking of the circle from a higher f-stop allows less light to pass through to the sensor. The lower the f-stop i.e. 1.8 allows you to shoot at faster shutter speeds in low light situations because the circle in the lens allows more light to pass through because of the lower aperture. Here’s an example say are in a well lit room and you’re shooting your child (yes that sounds very weird but it’s a funny joke anyway). Generally indoors you need to shoot at 1/60 of a second with most lenses they’ll instantly autofocus at their lowest f-stop which would be about 4.0. But with this lens since it can go down to 1.8 on the f-stop you could shoot the same picture at 1/125 shutter speed. Resulting in about the same light but avoiding any motion blur that plagues low light photography. Now needs to be noted that as you drop your f-stop you lose depth of field. I.e. how much of your photo will be in focus and how much will be blurred. It’s the effect you see on portraits where the person is in focus but the background is blurry.

    Now I know many people will probably shoot holes in the foregoing explanation of f-stop but I’m not a really advanced photographer but I get how shutter speed and aperture priority work with each other. Buying a lens like this can only help somebody understand how both are related and work together.

    Here’s what I recommend that you do:
    1. Enable manual mode on your camera this mode allows you to set both the aperture for the…
