I bought this camera because I wanted to step up my photography skills, and because my old Canon Rebel Xt didn't take movies. I previously wanted a Canon 60D, but when I heard about the new STM lenses for movies, I also found out they were only compatible with the T5i. So I switched.
The difference in taking movies with the STM lens is breathtaking. The lens silently tracks your focus subject, and allows you to lead your viewer through a story by clearly identifying the subject with intentional focus in each frame.
I'm also getting great detail in my macro photos. The camera is very small and light, so it's easy to hold. The Canon IS lenses really make handheld shots possible.

This camera has a lot of trouble with the automatic focus lenses I use. I find it a problem having to focus manually when there is a lot going on. Hopefully, there is still more to learn about using it in the situations that need auto focus. Otherwise, this camera will be a great dissappointment.

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    Bought this camera for my son, who will use it for its video capacity. Since he's still learning, I figured this is a great entry-level camera, rather than shelling out $1000+ for a higher end camera. When he gets to that point, I'll just turn over my Markll to him, and I'll be gettin' the upgrade!! And you can be assured that purchase will be made thru B&H....Always the BEST!!!

      I only have the Canon t5i for a few days and I already love. I particularly like the high ISO which allows me to take photos in existing light.

        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        I have several Canon cameras and I purchase others because of my favorable experience. I added the T5i to combine the quality of an SLR with the articulating screen and Live View. Based on previous experience I was looking for a spot focus option which I use frequently on my 5d Mk II. It took a while but I learned about viewing the subject on the Live Screen view and then touching the screen where you want to focus. The camera then takes over, focuses, and automatically takes the picture. It took some getting used to but it's a feature I enjoy. I'm still reading the manual and learing but I'm more than satisfied with the quality of the pictures. While reading reviews the major complaint seemed to be short batter life. Haven't had that expereince but I bought an extra battery to have on hand.

        Rebel Magic

        By Mick

        from NC

        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        Purchased for adult daughter to be used for general use, family photos, etc... When combined with the 50 f1.8 is a very light, portable and wonderful setup for many situations. Relatively cheap and accepts all canon mount lenses. Built in flash handy but also accepts external units. Has every thing from fully automatic to fully manual modes..... Shoots Raw files as well as multiple sized pegs. Video is excellent and entire setup is very capable. The files are great straight out of the camera, but as with all DSLRs require a little tweaking to print. Battery life good and controls convenient. I personally prefer the 1D or gripped size bodies, but for smaller hands the size and feel/balance of the camera is excellent.

            Great camera for a Photog on a budget

            By ScottKingsleyPhotography

            from Lancaster, PA

            Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera (Body Only):

            For a photographer starting out, this is a great camera to go with. For me, it was a chance to have a second camera and upgrade a little from my T2i. I've taken over 30,000 pictures with the T5i since I've purchased it and captured some incredible images. There are plent of features built in, and gives new photogs the ability to shoot in manual or automatic modes. The tilt out screen has been great too.

                    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                    This camera has a lot of trouble with the automatic focus lenses I use. I find it a problem having to focus manually when there is a lot going on. Hopefully, there is still more to learn about using it in the situations that need auto focus. Otherwise, this camera will be a great dissappointment.

                        This is my first DSLR camera and so far it has made great clear photographs and has been very easy to use. Lens from an old Canon SLR camera fit perfectly. Hope to enjoy it for many years to come as it seems to be built very well.

                        I use the T5i for all kinds of photos…events, parties, candids, portraits, wildlife…. I paired it with the Tamron 16-300. I am updating from the T2i which will now be my second camera. (I also have the Rebel XT, and T1i) I am an amateur wedding/party/event/travel photographer, mostly for friends and friends of friends. I publish books, and make slideshows. I find the camera easy to use, and fairly lightweight for what it is. I like the flip out screen, and the buttons are similar from Canon Rebel model to model, making it easy to upgrade.
