Canon eos rebel t5
But going mirrorless will deprive you of the one big advantage that SLRs still offer—an optical viewfinder. Like most entry-level models, the T5 uses a pentamirror viewfinder to direct light from the lens to your eye. This series of mirrors is lighter and less expensive to produce than traditional glass pentaprism designs, but sacrifices some size and only brings 95 percent of the frame to your eye. But if a top-quality viewfinder is what you're after and you don't want to spend a lot of money, consider the Pentax K-500$449.00 at Buydig.comor K-50$395.78 at; they each sport a glass pentaprism with 100 percent coverage, and the K-50 adds full weather-sealing, another rare feature in this class. If you're moving up from a compact camera, you'll likely not find a lot wanting from the T5's viewfinder, but if you were weaned on older 35mm SLRs you'll notice that it's a bit small in comparison.
Aside from the lens release, there are no controls located on the front of the camera—some other models include a depth-of-field preview (which narrows the lens to its shooting aperture to give you an idea of what will be in focus when you fire a shot), but the T5 doesn't have one. Its controls are all on the right side; on the top plate there's a mode dial, the power switch, the flash release, the control dial, and the shutter release. In addition to the standard M, Av, Tv, and P modes, the dial has a number of scene modes available—a description of each shows on the rear display when it's selected so you know how best to utilize them.
The remainder of the controls are on the rear. The Live View button is right next to the viewfinder, and exposure lock and focus point select controls are in the right corner, next to the thumb rest. You'll also find buttons to adjust Exposure Value (EV) compensation, which brightens or darkens the image that the T5 captures, and buttons to adjust ISO, the autofocus mode, the self-timer and drive mode, and the white balance. There's also a button labeled Q, which adjusts the various settings displayed on the rear LCD (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, EV compensation, color output, flash power, white balance, focus mode, drive mode, metering pattern, and file format). Each setting is accompanied by a description of what it does, which is helpful for beginners. The Q menu is featured on a number of Canon cameras, but it's not quite as intuitive here as it is with a touch-screen model like the T5i.
The fixed rear LCD is 3 inches in size and features a 460k-dot resolution. That's what you'd expect from a midrange compact; the majority of SLRs feature sharper displays that pack 921k dots into the same space. It's fine for use with Live View and for reviewing photos that you've captured in the field, but it's not as crisp as a sharper display when zooming in on an image that you've captured to confirm that you've nailed focus. Of current models in this class, the only other SLR with a low-resolution display is the Sony Alpha 58£269.00 at Amazon; the Canon T5i and SL1, Nikon D3300 and D5300, and the Pentax K-500 and K-50 all feature displays with at least 921k dots.

The T5 is a no-frills camera, so don't look for integrated Wi-Fi or GPS. Those features haven't made a lot of headway into SLRs, but the Nikon D5300 does have both. Canon's least expensive model with Wi-Fi is the midrange EOS 70D£766.55 at Amazon. If you opt for the T5 and are in want of Wi-Fi, you can add it via an Eyefi Mobi$39.99 at Amazonmemory card; the card automatically transfers images from the camera to a smartphone or tablet.

your eyes aren't deceiving you: the only significant differences between the now-discontinued Canon EOS Rebel T5 and its replacement, the T5i, are the price and the kit lens options. There are some small enhancements, including a new finish and grip; 360-degree rotation mode dial; and real-time shooting with creative filters with Live View preview. Interestingly, I also found some performance differences between the T5i and its predecessor, most notably in significantly better continuous shooting. But overall it's really the same camera and in this case, that's a mixed blessing.

Image quality
I think Canon tweaked its default settings so that still-photo colors aren't quite so out of whack, though there are still some hue shifts. JPEGs look clean up through ISO 800, which is typical for this class, and usable at full scale to about ISO 1600 and ISO 6400 at smaller magnifications. While a 13x19 print of an ISO 6400 photo wasn't quite as clean or sharp as I would have liked, it doesn't look that bad.
Video also looks about the same as the T4i's; good, but not significantly better than you get from similarly priced competitors. While I didn't see any rolling shutter, there's quite a bit of aliasing and moire. I do like the tonality of low-light video, despite the appearance of some color noise on blacks. (I'll be uploading video samples soon. Please check back.)

Canon’s new entry-level DSLR, the EOS Rebel T5 ($550), is an upgrade from the now discontinued T3. That’s all well and good, but is it better than the more affordable mirrorless competition – which have become very strong performers in the past year? While the camera will satisfy newbie DSLR owners in ease of use and great image quality, the fact that there isn’t a major upgrade in features leaves us wanting a little more. (Check out our T5 vs. Nikon D3300 comparison here.)

Features and Design

Ho-hum, it’s another all-black basic DSLR with a textured grip. We really shouldn’t expect much more sizzle since, other than Pentax’s Day-Glo bodies, almost all digital single lens reflex cameras look alike. Canon fans will find nothing unusual here, neither will every buyer looking for a new DSLR. Granted, it doesn’t have the heft of the new pro-level Nikon D4S, but it also doesn’t have an MSRP that’s ten-times more expensive – the T5 is clearly for newbies and those looking to upgrade older Rebels.
Stealthy it is not, for it’s rather noisy as the mirror assembly flaps away.
At $549 with a kit zoom lens, the 18-megapixel T5 has solid imaging underpinnings but if you’re looking for “scintillating,” you won’t find it here. The camera measures 5.1 x 3.9 x 3 inches, weighing 17 ounces for the body, battery, and card. We know this is hard to quantify but overall it feels rather “plasticky.” At least, carrying it around your neck shouldn’t be too much of a burden.
The key feature on the front is the classic EF mount and, thanks to many years in the business, Canon offers a huge selection of glass. We can’t imagine anyone spending $1,000 for a wide-aperture prime lens to use with this camera, but the 55-250mm would be a good addition ($299); Canon sent that along for our review. Given the 1.6x digital factor, we had a 28.8-400mm focal range to play with, which was a lot of fun shooting landscapes.
Even though the T5 improves upon the T3’s 720p with Full HD 1920 x 1080/30p video, they neglected the stereo part of the equation, opting for a mono mic. We know manufacturers have to watch their pennies but this seems like a foolish oversight. Also, note the T5 does have an outboard AF Assist lamp like Nikon, Sony, et al. Here it’s part of the auto pop-up flash. This is nothing unusual for Canon DSLRs and fortunately we had few focusing issues.
We found the grip comfortable and the textured finish helped keep things steady. In keeping with its entry-level status, the main mode dial not only has Scene Intelligent (smart) Auto, PASM, and Movie, it has four commonly used scene options (Portrait, Landscape, Macro, and Sports) along with other settings.
