Written by | Gadgets, Photography


Together with the EOS SL1, Canon also announced the new EOS Rebel T5i dSLR (or EOS 700D in some market) if you’re already shooting using T4i or the EOS 650D then you’ll be familiar with the new EOS Rebel T5i. Since the new EOS Rebel T5i is virtually the same gut and feature of the T4i.

The same 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with DIGIC 5 processor; the smae ISO range which goes up to 12800, and expandable to 25600; the same 5 fps continuous shooting speed; the same 9-point AF system and Hybrid CMOS AF system; and also the same 3-inch swiveling touchscreen. The difference that Canon is selling with the new EOS Rebel T5i dSLR is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM that’s also bundled with the EOS SL1; the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM was developed to focus faster and silently when shooting for still images and videos.

When shooting still images Canon included a number of upgraded in the software like the addition of seven creative filters that can be previewed in real-time via the Live View: ArtBold, Water Painting, Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Fish-Eye and Miniature.

As for videos, the Canon EOS Rebel T5i can record 1080p Full HD video with its Hybrid CMOS AF system and the Movie Servo AF the camera can provide continuous AF for focus tracking of moving subjects by helping to reduce the camera’s need to “hunt”.
