Melville, NY—Canon’s EOS Rebel T5 digital SLR camera is designed to provide entry-level photographers with an affordable way to take their imaging skills to the next level. Incorporating an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C-size) image sensor and a Digic 4 image processor, the Rebel T5 delivers improved functionality, even in low light.
Along with a 3.0-inch LCD screen for live view recording and review, a range of ISO settings, 100–6400 (expandable to 12,800), were included to accommodate shooting situations from bright outdoor lighting to dimly lit indoor settings. The camera can automatically lock in on moving subjects with its nine-point AF system (including one center cross-type AF point), plus it provides AI servo AF. It also offers a continuous shooting mode of three frames per second to help photographers capture the action at children’s activities or sporting events.
“The EOS Rebel T5 camera is designed for entry-level DSLR photographers looking to expand their creative options and advance their photography skills,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications, Canon USA. “The improved functionality of this new EOS Rebel camera will help them do just that as it intelligently guides users on how to pinpoint their perfect shot and capture high-quality images and videos worth sharing.”
While shooting is made easy due to the camera’s intelligent auto mode, which helps deliver optimized photos and offers improved scene detection that’s especially useful for shooting at night, enthusiasts will also appreciate the T5’s 18MP CMOS sensor and Digic 4 processor. Its basic+ and creative auto functions will direct entry-level enthusiasts through setting adjustments; a built-in feature guide offers short descriptions of shooting modes, settings and effects for easy operation. Designed to educate first-time users on the EOS camera settings, this function will also provide recommendations while shooting in certain situations.
The Rebel T5 also offers a creative feature set of various effects, including toy camera, fisheye and miniature effects, as well as settings to enhance photographs and video. Whether adding contrast for a more dramatic effect or boosting exposure for additional brightness, the camera will guide users on photo editing.
Additionally, Full HD 1080p movie recording is possible in a number of recording sizes and frame rates, with manual control of exposure, focus and live view features, as well as in-camera editing.
The camera is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses as well as other accessories, like the new macro ring light MR-14EX II. The Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR comes bundled with an EF-S 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 IS II lens. $549.99. usa.canon.com
