The EOS Rebel T5i features Canon's amazing 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor. Perfect for enlargements or for cropping detailed portions of the composition, the camera's sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range. This first-class sensor features many of the same technologies used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel's light-gathering efficiency and has center pixels that aid in the EOS Rebel T5i's accurate AF performance. This APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format).
14-bit A/D Conversion
With 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, the EOS Rebel T5i captures and records images with remarkable gradations and detail in subtle tones and colors, resulting in more realistic and detailed images. By recording up to 16,384 colors per channel, the EOS Rebel T5i ensures that the fine detail found in subjects like foliage, sky and water are preserved and recorded with a tremendous level of accuracy, ensuring gorgeous results.
ISO 10012800 and expandable to 25600 in H mode
Thanks to its DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the EOS Rebel T5i features an expanded ISO range of ISO 10012800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. The EOS Rebel T5i, with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor's remarkable noise-reduction technology, performs brilliantly in low-light shooting. Used with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer, the EOS Rebel T5i can record beautiful images even when light sources are scarce.
DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The EOS Rebel T5i's DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the camera's CMOS sensor to deliver images with incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the EOS Rebel T5i can achieve higher ISO sensitivity, can shoot up to 5.0 fps continuously and can even perform advanced functions like HDR Backlight Control, art filters, lens correction and much more. The camera's brilliant imaging core supercharges every facet of still and moving image capture.
I got this camera only about two weeks ago, for better video performance from my Canon camcorder, and I'm already taking more photos than videos! The camera is amazing, produces stunning images like I've never taken! The only thing I didn't like about it, was its lack of a headphone jack, which is great for video, and somewhat loose focus ring. It slides nicely, but seems to go faster in some areas of the circumference. But you can overlook that!

I use this camera for both photography and video, it is exceptional in both of these areas. This is my first DSLR I have owned but I have used others in the past and this camera is much superior to the DSLR's I have used previously. The quality of the images is exceptional, I rarely have to edit my pictures because they are already so crisp and perfect. The video is very nice, I like how the switch has a specific spot for the video feature so you can easily use the viewfinder without accidentally recording a video. Very happy with my purchase.

I received this camera as a birthday gift to replace my T1i. It came with the 18-135 lens. This past summer we took a trip to Yellowstone NP with it and I only brought the one lens. The camera was fantastic. I shoot over 1000 pictures and over an hour of video with it with no problems. The video of Old Faithful came out a sharp as if I used a good video camera. The colors were spot on. On the stills, the camera captured all the color of the various steam pots, geysers, and pools in Yellowstone. The shots of the animals was without compare and again the color of the sky, trees, water, and anything else was perfect. I took a video of our 6 year old granddaughter being sworn in as a Junior Ranger. This was inside without any additional lighting and it came out crisp and clean. The audio was great also. I love the features, ease of use, and the performance of the camera. This camera will serve my needs for years to come.

Shot a couple weddings with this camera, both with strictly video and strictly photos on separate occasions and has turned out well and lived up to my expectations. Landscapes, portraits, travel and sports are easy to shoot and have come out great. This camera has lived up to my expectations and surpassed some as well. This camera is fast and super quick with the Canon 18-135 IS STM lens, a good step up from the kit lens already with the camera. You get a very versatile system for just about any type of photography and the lens/camera combination is extremely sharp and clear.
The one bummer is not being able to shoot in silent mode. A couple models up have that mode and are able to shoot very quietly, but hey, that's why you get one of these cameras, to hear that amazing click and awesome FPS. Overall very impressive look and feel, good build quality and obviously with some amazing lenses that Canon produces the better the shots will come out. I look forward to the great shots and video with this camera, a must have in the ol' camera bag.
