The Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens is an 18MP APS-C format DSLR camera with a DIGIC 4 image processor. It is paired with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens, giving you a range of wide-angle to short telephoto focal lengths. The combination of the T5’s CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor provide high clarity, a wide tonal range, and natural color reproduction. With an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800), you can shoot in low-light situations, reducing the need for a tripod or a flash. The nine-point autofocus system includes one center cross-type AF point to deliver accurate focus in both landscape and portrait orientations. You can capture Full HD 1080p video by way of the T5’s dedicated Live View/Movie Recording button, at 30, 25, or 24 fps. Additionally, the camera can also record HD video in 720p at 60 and 50 fps, and 480p at 30 and 35 fps. The 3″ rear LCD screen has 460,000 pixels, and a 170¡ã viewing angle, making it ideal for menu navigation, composing in Live View, and reviewing or sharing your photos and videos. The Rebel T5 is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses, and is paired here with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens. This lens offers wide-angle to standard focal lengths, with a 35mm equivalency of 29-88mm. It is a versatile lens that can focus as close as 9.8″. The lens features Canon’s Optical Image Stabilization technology, which provides up to four stops of compensation for image blur caused by camera shake and slow shutter speeds. This helps to get clear, crisp images, even in low light situations. Aberrations are minimized thanks to an aspherical lens element, and a circular aperture renders pleasing out-of-focus areas.

    Rebels ROCK: T5 vs T5i, May 25, 2014
    Joanna Daneman (USA) –
    (#1 Hall OF FAME REVIEWER)

    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.
