Let’s take a closer look at the Canon Rebel T5.
18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
The EOS Rebel T5 has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor, with ample resolution for big enlargements or crops. This first-class sensor is APS-C sized for an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format). Complementing the sensor is the DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which Canon says dramatically speeds up camera operations, pro viding images full of detail and natural color reproduction and good responsiveness.
EOS Full HD Movie
The EOS Rebel T5 offers easy-to-use video capture at up to 1080p ant 30fps and as Canon points out, Full HD quality shot by a larger-sensor camera such as the T5 is difficult for a smartphone to match. The T5 is capable of shoting in a number of recording sizes and frame rates, and operation is simple: press the dedicated Live View/Movie Recording button to get started shooting. Additionally, the EOS Rebel T5 enables easy manual control of exposure, focus and Live View features and even allows for in-camera editing.
Video Snapshot feature lets you capture short video clips (of 2, 4 or 8 seconds) then combine them automatically into one video file as a snapshot or highlight “album.” With no editing needed after shooting, the compiled video is designed for online sharing or displaying directly on an HDTV via the camera’s HDMI port.
Large 3.0-inch LCD Monitor
The EOS Rebel T5 has a huge, bright 3.0-inch LCD monitor that is ideal for composing and capturing amazing images, as well as showing them off to friends and family. The large display has high resolution with 460,000 pixels and a wide viewing angle of 170°. Unlike the T5i, it does not flip out, is not a touchscreen, and is lower resolution than the million-plus pixel resolution of the T5i. These upgrades were sacrificed to keep the camera’s price down, but if these features are important to you, you may want to consider the T5i instead of the T5.
Scene Intelligent Auto mode
Scene Intelligent Auto mode incorporates a number of Canon technologies. Combining data from Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure, Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast, and whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod. It then chooses the exposure and enhancements that bring out the best in any scene or situation. This is ideal for snapshooters making the jump from compacts or smart phones to interchangeable-lens cameras.
To help explain the specific function of features found on the EOS Rebel T5, the Feature Guide displays a simple description showing how it’s applicable-or not-for the situation at hand. It is displayed in each shooting mode, during mode dial operations, and for Quick Control screen functions. It appears automatically when a function is selected – a helpful feature when a beginner is trying to determine the best mode or function for the next picture. The feature guide works automatically by default, and can be disabled easily through the camera’s menu.
Up to 3.0 fps Continuous Shooting
Burst rate is up to 3.0 fps (frames per second) for up to approximately 69 JPEGs or approximately 6 RAW files. That’s about average for a beginner DSLR. Canon also claims instant startup, speedy AF and virtually no shutter lag.
ISO 100-6400 (Expandable to H: 12800)
With a broad range of light sensitivity ratings from ISO 100-6400 (expandable to H: 12800), the EOS Rebel T5 is is expected to do very well in low light without the need for flash. Thanks to this expanded ISO range, the EOS Rebel T5 can capture more subjects in more situations, handheld, without the need for flash. This means more natural and detailed looking pictures and movies that can be shot discreetly.
9-point AF System and AI Servo AF
The EOS Rebel T5’s 9-point AF system has a center cross-type AF point. The system intelligently uses both normal and high-precision focus, depending on the aperture and available light.
Creative Scene Options
Ideal for beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons is Creative Auto mode where basic settings are based on full automatic operation, but shooting guides on the LCD screen explain how to make changes to exposure, tone, sharpness and more, and how those changes will affect the final image. The camera features five creative filters for still images: Grainy B/W, Soft Focus, Fisheye Effect, Miniature Effect and Toy Camera Effect. Additionally, Basic+ makes it easy to create the image effects you want, changing ambience or scene type according to simple choices made on the camera’s Quick Control Screen.
Compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses
The EOS Rebel T5 is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses.
A GPS Receiver GP-E2, which attaches to the hot shoe or the digital terminal, lets you record location, including latitude, longitude and altitude, and has the ability to track the trajectory of movement with its logging function. An electric compass records the camera’s orientation during each shot, and world time information is recorded through GPS syncing.
