Canon has launched its third iteration in the EOS Rebel line of DSLRs. Dubbed as Rebel T5i, it looks similar to the company’s T4i model but with a more affordable price.
The Canon Rebel T5i features a CMOS sensor of 18-megapixel APS-C. It’s also packed with the Canon Image Processor of DIGIC 5 and a 100-12,800 ISO range which is expandable of up to 25,600 in H mode. The T5i digital camera is designed to bring images that are crisp and fully detailed in an environment that has low lighting conditions. Its continuous shooting capacity measures at five fps. The new flagship camera also features cross-type autofocus which has focus of nine points. It supports the popular Live View mode and sports a 3-inch touchscreen LCD at the rear.
The camera’s standard kit lens package comes with a new lens dubbed as EF-S 18-55mmf/3.5-5.6 IS STM. Moreover, the camera utilizes the Stepping Motor technology which enables the lens to automatically focus on the subject in a smooth and silent manner.
The camera’s rear LCD is embedded with intuitive touch controls for easy usage especially for those who are first time photographers. Other features include Creative Filters, Night Scene, Multi-Shot Noise Production mode, and HDR Backlight Control. The camera alone will be publicly available in April with a starting price of $749.99 (282 BHD). When bundled with the kit lens (18-to-55mm STM lens), the price then becomes $899.99 (350 BHD). If customers shall desire another bundle feature, it will have the EF-S 18-135mm/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens under the price tag of $1099. In comparison, the T4i (with 18-to-135mm lens) costs over $1000. Owners of T4i can save more since T5i’s lens kit works perfectly with T4i.
