          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens:

          for a beginner I would recommend this camera, what I like about it for me is that it is lightweight great f0r hiking in the mountains. Why I did get it was because of the great price on a Black Friday Sale. I have paid that much for a point and shoot. I feel that it was worth the price a neat little DSLR, so if you want a little light weight DSLR I say go for it

          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens:

          considered the T5i, but for the price and features this was a better value. Also small footprint so easy to hold and carry around. Videos are excellent quality but be sure to focus first. A lot of manual adjustments but Automatic takes great pictures too. Like that you can use either viewfinder or direct view.

          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens:

          I bought this camera in a "military bundle" that included the camera (w/ 18-55mm lens, strap, lens cap, usb cable, etc.), the 75-300mm lens, an sd card, and a shoulder bag. I originally wanted to get the a58 by Sony but I ended up choosing this over that one because it was Black Friday and I decided it was the better choice. I am a photography student and an avid videographer, and so far I am pretty satisfied with this camera. It takes really nice photos indoors, outside, and the resolution is spot on. The video functions are much better than the digital camera I had before as it has multiple settings with different dimensions and fps presets, but the one thing that bothers me the most is the noisy video it takes at night. Besides that, I can say this camera is spot on and a fantastic investment for those photographers/videographers who are looking for a camera that won't cost thousands of dollars.

                Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens:

                There are 3 athletes in our family, 3 dogs -- and a chauffer/photographer who also has an Interior Design business - these last jobs are mine. After years of point and shoot photog experience I decided it was time to graduate to a photographic solution that would accurately capture the feel and quality of a moment. After months of research, quizzing other families who have shared a broad range of well taken images with us over the years & still others that we encountered in our work and travels, I decided to make the leap and by the Canon EOS Rebel T5. It easily won the "best of" camera decision. While it takes a certain eye for the shot desired, the images we've seen and have shared all have a few commonalities; consistent low noise images with crisp lines, solid/repeatable saturation and a focusing phenom. Combined with required shutter speed for outdoor, glare intensive action shots - Big Winner!! I've been experimenting & carrying the Rebel around with me for the past 3 weeks, it's lightweight and packed with enough power and finese to capture precision shots of swimmers in action, the grimmace of a power lifter as he pushes through to a personal best and 3 crazy dogs in action or at rest. I'll experiment next on shots to include more practice with lighting, stills of completed work and portraits. Initial shots I've taken - confirmed my suspicions, I should continue to expect beautiful results.

                      This is just so useful. It is light weight, has plenty of settings and did I mention it is lightweight. Images are coming out so clear and for an unbelievable price! Unless you work for national geographic, pick one up to day and it will be a great camera. You are getting more than what you pay for.

                      As a high school photographer our new camera is being used in all fields. For example, to get the really close and high action football shots with those hard lighting Friday night lights, the focused student in the classroom, and the average high action crowd shot at a rally or a game. The ability to run a fast shutter and filter out the right amount of light is amazing! Perfect camera for what we shoot! All lighting, all speeds, all angles!The loud shutter is the only feature I dislike, makes quiet classroom shots awkward and disrupting.

                        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens:

                        I'm a complete DSLR newbie. Although I did have some exposure to point and click film cameras early on in life, most of my picture-taking experience comes from smart phones. I was ready to step up, but NOT ready to invest thousands of dollars because I wasn't sure if this hobby of mine was going to require that level of investment.I also wanted something easy to learn.The T5 is perfect. An argument can be made that the T5i is superior, but honestly as a newbie I don't miss its slightly expanded feature set. I'm making plenty of mistakes, but the interface is friendly enough that I can figure out within a few shots how to correct or compensate for my errors. I'm very happy with the picture quality, even with the basic kit lens. I imagine I'll be investing in a 50mm f/1.8 (the "nifty fifty") soon enough.I take the camera with me everywhere. The weight is fantastic, very light and barely noticeable in my bag. And today, after hitting 458 shots total, the battery finally started blinking a warning at me about recharging it. Pretty good considering I've been using it for two weeks straight. More importantly, I'm really getting into photography as a hobby, enough to want to add more lenses and accessories. If this keeps up I imagine I may want to trade up to something more capable (full frame?) so as to possibly start earning money from this hobby...but that's years away and in the meantime I'm supremely satisfied with my purchase.

                            I purchased this camera on behalf of my middle school yearbook committee. After a short lesson on photography, the students were able to take the camera and begin to experiment.

                                I had used this for the first time on the 4th of July. I had no problem with the auto setting and the pictures were great. Second use was at my granddaughter's birthday party. This time using manual focus, again the pictures were great. I plan to use this in varied situations so that I may get better with the camera. I also plan to take some photography classes so that I can use this camera to the best of it's and my ability.

                                  In checking out the camera and lens, both in regular photography and macro mode, it really does a nice job. It is a bit complicated to learn all the stuff it can do but I do not consider that a downside. I actually consider it to be an indication of the many, many capabilities of the camera. I really like it a lot.
