I use this camera for my online courses I am taking through The Art Institute of Pittsburgh online division. I am going for my Associates in Digital Photography. I'm new at using any kind of DSLR camera and am still currently learning many different things about it. My current views are that the quality of the photographs that I take with it is absolutely amazing. The colors are crisps and true to the tones and colors in of real life.

It was surprisingly cheap feeling compared to the T1i. I had to borrow that camera from my school for a photography class until I could afford my own, which is why I got this T5. To be honest, I liked the T1i better. I thought I was getting a better one since it's so new, but it's actually lesser in features. If you are on a budget and are looking for an acceptable camera, I would go with an older model that has an "i" behind the number.

      Great starter DSLR!

      By Nicole

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens:

      This was my first DSLR. It is easy to use right out of the box and takes excellent quality photos. The menu is easy to navigate and provides helpful explanations about the different shooting modes. It is also very lightweight and packable! If you are looking for your first DSLR, the Rebel line of cameras is an excellent choice backed by the reliable Canon name. My only criticism about this camera is that it does not have a broad feature set, but that is acceptable for this price point. If you want a camera that will force you to shoot in manual, I suggest a higher-end model. However, if your goal is to take beautiful photos with ease, look no further!

      Perfect Gift For First Camera

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens:

      I purchased the Rebel T5 as an early graduation gift for my daughter. This is her first DSLR and is a great platform as a starter camera. I've always taught her that if she had a $1000 budget to buy a $950 lens and a used $50 camera body. Quality images are always determined by the quality of the "glass" (lens), not the body. This is not a pro camera body, nor a pro lens, but it is an ideal kit to learn the basics. She is thrilled to finally have a decent camera to advance creatively beyond the limitations of her cell phone camera. if you're getting this as your first camera for yourself or as a gift, choose now which company you want to throw your loyalty to: Canon or Nikon. Whichever lenses you prefer, and plan on expanding your kit, that's the company you want to go with. While the plastic body helps deliver a lower weight, this is not the ideal camera body for heavy "L" series lenses. But for what it is, it is a very sweet camera for those starting out in photography without draining the bank.

      Canon on a budget

      By In New York

      from Brooklyn

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens:

      I had this camera for a while now it's ok for the price but I will make a few points
      Pros
      It's cheap
      It's lightweight
      But there is a bunch of cons like
      The built in flash gets used as a af light which makes every one mad but you can change in custom settings
      It has a very chep feel to it
      No dust reduction
      Sd card goes next to battery not on side like t5i
      No mic jack
      Bad bad bad ISO level even at 3200
      Slow af
      Only mark ii of the 18-55 not the STM one
      All in all if your on a budget this is it but if can at lest get a SL1 or t5i

      I got this as an upgrade to the 450D. Needless to say, this was a huge upgrade. The photos are very sharp and the video function is great. The only downside I noticed is that it has some chromatic aberrations.

              Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens:

              I purchased the Canon T5 as a mid-range camera to save my Nikon D4 from extreme environmental working hazards and conditions in the field. The T5 body seems small and lightweight for extra-large hands. I use a Vello battery grip to compensate, a major plus for extra support and handling. The ISO range, WB, and photo quality met and exceeded my expectations without 'fixing' them on a computer. The auto settings for various scenes are very good, indeed. I also enjoy full range manual control for each function. It works well with remote external flash units. I expected slow performance while using in -18 F weather but was surprised, especially the rapid image processing time at high ISO's and extended exposures. In summary, I am very pleased with this camera and its range of capabilities. For its class, I must rate the unit a five. However, in my opinion, nothing beats film cameras. Yet.
