The helpful feature guide and Scene Intelligent Auto mode provide shooters with information and automation options to perfect their shot.
In addition to the new Rebel T5, Canon has announced six new PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras. Headlining the list is the flagship PowerShot G1 X Mark II, which features a large, 1.5-inch, 12.8 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 Image Processor, and an all-new 5x wide-angle optical zoom lens. Adding to the mix are three new super slim PowerShot ELPH models: 135, 140 and 150, offering impressive image sensor and Digic processor features for outstanding performance and superb image clarity. Rounding out the new point-and-shoot list is the tough and sporty PowerShot D30, an ideal choice for the adventures, and the PowerShot SX700 HS with incredible 30x Optical Zoom capabilities. Canon also introduced the all-new Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II. It is ideal for EOS-quality close-up photography when used in conjunction with one of Canon’s EF Macro lenses. Redesigned as a perfect complement to contemporary digital SLR setups, it is the most advanced macro flash Canon has ever produced.
Industry Expert Mason Resnick Takes a “First Look” at the New Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR
Adorama Learning Center’s Mason Resnick, a digital imaging expert, is one of the first to review a Canon Rebel T5. An excerpt from Mason’s “First Look” review: “Like the T5i ICAT5I, which was introduced last March, the T5 is a simple, easy-to-master digital SLR. But unlike the T5i, the T5 is equipped with a simpler non-touch, fixed-position LCD monitor, which brings down the overall cost of the camera by $100. While the T5i is designed more for aspiring videographers as well as first-time still shooters, the T5 is more squarely aimed at snapshooters stepping up to DSLRs.”
Feature Highlights of the New Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Include:
18.0MP CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
The EOS Rebel T5 has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops.
