Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR is the cheapest DSLR from Canon to date

canon-eos-rebel-t5I remember in the early days when a DSLR proved to be a digital camera that was extremely expensive, and only a handful of people could afford it. Well, I am glad to say that the DSLR family has grown by leaps and bounds since then, and the economy of scale has also dropped the price to a level that is a whole lot more affordable for everyone. Well, when you take a look at the Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR, it is even more affordable, as it has been touted to be the cheapest DSLR from Canon to date.

Do not be fooled, however, as the Canon EOS Rebel T5 might be affordable, but this does not mean that it is not able to perform. No sir, you will still be able to enjoy high image quality as well as Full HD video capture. This new camera will be able to provide entry-level photographers with an affordable manner of elevating their imaging skills to the next level. It will incorporate an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) image sensor that is accompanied by a high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor, while boasting of an extensive ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) that allows it to accommodate shooting situations which range from bright, natural outdoor lighting to low light conditions.

Apart from that, the EOS Rebel T5 will also be able to lock-in automatically on moving subjects without missing a beat, where it will ensure that the nine-point AF system (which includes a center cross-type AF point) gets plenty of work in such situations. Not only that, you will be able to enjoy a continuous shooting mode of up-to three frames per second (fps), transforming you into an instant “expert” at situations where there are children’s activities and sporting events among others. The Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR will arrive bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens next month for $549.99 a pop.
