Canon EOS 700D Review


Sitting at the top of Canon's consumer range of DSLR cameras, the EOS 700D is an upgrade to the EOS 650D. The notable improvements include sturdier build, redesigned mode dial, preview for creative filters and higher Live View refresh rate. Also for...

The wireless flash trigger will definitely entice a photographer who can’t afford a prosumer camera and wants to use external flash. The inbuilt flash can sync in 1st curtain or 2nd curtain modes.

Canon EOS Rebel T5i review


Canon's latest Rebel may not have the cutting-edge technology of the EOS 70D such as Dual Pixel AF video technology and Wi-Fi, but if you don't want to spend well over a grand, this one covers all the photographic basics – and then some. Let's see what...

Fine 18MP still images ; Helpful vari-angle touchscreen ; 5 fps burst mode

Build quality not the greatest ; Video focusing improved but issues remain ; No wireless connectivity

Recommending the T5i for still photography is a no-brainer. It’s easy to use, takes quality images, and has enough technical headroom so you can spread your creative wings.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel T5i Review


The Rebel T5i is called the upgrade to Canon's Rebel T4i DSLR camera from last year, but it's more like a very close sibling. Canon only made a few changes to the T5i versus the T4i. This fact makes it unlikely that Rebel T4i owners will want to...

Image quality is very high ; Extremely fast performance in Viewfinder mode ; Very fast start-up ; Articulated, high-resolution LCD is nice feature for shooting with a tripod ; Touchscreen LCD makes it easy to control camera for beginners ; Ports...

Not enough improvements from Rebel T4i ; Autofocus works too slowly in Live View mode, creating significant shutter lag ; Although autofocus in video mode is improved from past Rebels, it's still slow ; Autofocus illuminator lamp only works when the...

Canon EOS 700D (EOS Rebel T5i)


June 2013: The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i replaces the very short-lived Canon EOS 650D / T4i but is almost indistinguishable from it in terms of design, operation and specification. Our tests have found the image quality and performance of both cameras...

Comprehensive touchscreen interface that is intuitive and efficient ; High image quality with good balance between detail and noise reduction in JPEG output ; Good subject tracking AF in viewfinder shooting mode (compared to mirrorless competition) ; 5...

Slow 'hybrid AF' performance in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless competition) ; Slightly higher noise levels than its peers ; Default dynamic range lags a bit behind its peers ; Using flash with Auto ISO enabled results in ISO 400 even...

The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i is an upgrade to the 650D almost in name only, but still combines very good image quality with a comprehensive, well-designed touchscreen interface. AF performance in live view mode and video is an improvement over early...

Canon EOS Rebel T5i


The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is essentially the same camera as its predecessor, and it's still a solid performer.

Fast to start and shoot. Sharp, articulated touch-screen LCD. Compact. Nearly silent video autofocus when used with STM lenses. 4fps shooting. Good image detail at high ISOs. Fast autofocus

Small pentamirror viewfinder. Very limited burst shooting in Raw mode. Video autofocus is choppy with non-STM lenses

At first glance, the Canon EOS Rebel T5i ($749.99 list, body only) looks a lot like its predecessor, the T4i. Look closer and you'll discover, well, that they're almost exactly identical. Aside from some cosmetic differences and very minor differences...

Canon EOS Rebel T5i (with 18-55mm STM lens)


No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: the only significant differences between the now-discontinued Canon EOS Rebel T4i and its replacement, the T5i, are the price and the kit lens options. There are some small enhancements, including a new finish and...

The Canon EOS Rebel T5i retains the great articulated touch-screen implementation that's optimized for video, and delivers the same excellent photo quality and solid video as its predecessor. Plus the performance is slightly improved.

The phase-detection autofocus system is feeling its age and competitors have caught up with the Live View performance. The tiny autofocus points in the viewfinder also remain annoying to use, and the feature set remains lackluster.

While the Canon EOS Rebel T5i is -- almost literally -- the same solid camera as its predecessor, it's starting to lag frustratingly behind the competition in some ways.

Canon EOS Rebel T5i: Lab Test Results & Comments


The Canon EOS Rebel T5i (700D) is the replacement of the EOS Rebel T4i but in many ways is quite similar to its forerunner. Just like the T4i it uses an 18MP APS-C-sized sensor, has a compact body, a swivel monitor, Full HD video recording, and...

Compact entry-level SLR; advanced design of the body ; Fully articulated swivel monitor with high resolution (1,040,000 RGB dots) ; Easy handling: scene modes for beginners; comprehensive image control for more advanced users ; 5 EV stop exposure...

Somewhat high oversharpening ; Slightly high saturation of red nuances

Canon EOS Rebel T5i


A new Rebel sounds exciting, but won't wow enthusiasts.

The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is a decent camera. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a good value, but it's a known quantity: It's a T4i with a new mode dial. The Rebel line of DSLRs has offered a consistent level of quality that—while uninspiring—is good...

Camera Test: Canon EOS Rebel T5i
