Expert Review

Canon’s perennial best-selling budget-priced DSLR is a spot-on choice for photographers seeking to achieve sparkling, properly exposed, in-focus images with every shot. Using the same DIGIC 4 technology as the prosumer EOS 60da, the Rebel T5 produces pictures with a brilliant color palette, retaining fine details even in the darkest shadows and brightest highlights.

Two other features capable of turning amateur photographers into professionals for a day are 63-zone dual-layer exposure metering and Scene Intelligence Mode (SIM) Dual-layer metering where twin segments of the light spectrum are measured separately and compared to compensate for slight variations in color temperature and intensity. In this mode, the Rebel T5 knows everything happening in, around and in front of your camera.

SIM circuitry crunches all this intel to consider the best combination of picture perfect shutter speed, aperture, white balance, back or front light compensation, fill or full flash, and various image enhancements. The T5 offers up to 3fps continuous shooting, full HD video capture, a video snapshot mode for combining short clips into an album and in-camera video editing. It’s also fully compatible with Canon’s line of more than 60 ES and ES-F lenses.Rating: 4.75/5
