Canon just announced the entry-level, 18-megapixel EOS Rebel T5 (EOS 1200D) digital SLR camera, which replaces the EOS Rebel T3 (EOS 1100D). The new camera offers users an extensive ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) to accommodate shooting situations from bright, natural outdoor lighting to dimly lit indoor settings. The camera can also automatically lock-in on moving subjects with ease using the EOS Rebel T5 camera’s nine-point AF system (including one center cross-type AF point). With help from the AI Servo AF, users can benefit from the camera’s outstanding autofocus capabilities. The new EOS Rebel T5 camera also offers a continuous shooting mode of up-to three frames per second (fps) to help photographers capture the action at children’s activities, sporting events and more. Images can then be easily viewed on the camera’s large three-inch LCD monitor.
Photo enthusiasts can capture high-quality images that are true-to-life in color, sharpness and contrast with the EOS Rebel T5 camera’s 18.0 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor. Shooting is also made easy thanks to the EOS Rebel T5 camera’s Intelligent Auto mode that helps deliver expertly optimized photos and offers improved scene detection, especially useful for shooting at night.
