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.

I love this camera have had it for couple of years and have gotten tons of great images.  THe one problem is the Low light performance can't go over ISO 800 without having really noisy photos.

The ordering experience has always been positive with B & H. Their customer service has always been outstanding. This particular order has a flash on back order, so the shipment was split so the camera and flash cards would arrive quickly. Camera works great.

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

Such a great camera to start getting into the dslr´s world. The perfect bridge between the rookie and the "not as noob". Manual exposure, manual aperture, manual everthing.
Saw a lot of people comparing this camera with the Nikon D3300 and the first differnce they mentioned was the ISO level. They said Canon T5 doesn´t reach 12800 ISO but it does. So that´s pretty much everything. So excited to get this camera. Totally recommended.

Great for press

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

For newspaper work it's great. (a) light weight, (b) it doesn't appear intrusive, for award ceremonies, graduation class etc. (c) using the kit lens it gives the photographer a chance to get a little closer with out moving around a lot.
The camera size is ideal for those wanting to try street photography. or venture into other fields. The price is perfect for someone who is wanting to explore photography before spending a lot on a camera. Plus they can if they want ad other lenses SEEing the Canon T5 accepts other canon lenses.

Great Deal for top of line Camera!

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

I purchased this camera, from B&H at the recommendation of a published photographer, author, and university professor. The camera came with everything, and the price sold separately is $ 100's more. Can't wait to see the memories I learn to capture, for a lifetime.

I've had this camera for a few weeks now and i must say it takes amazing photos even with the kit lens. It's a great starter DSLR as it is fairly easy to use and learning comes easy.

      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

      Pros

      • Good Image Quality
      • Great Value

      Cons

      • Cropped Sensor
      • Not A Pro Unit
      • Plastic Body

      Best Uses

      • General Photography
      • Learner's Kit

      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.
