Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR breaks cover

We have talked about a couple new digital cameras from Canon this morning. Canon has launched a third new camera today that fits into the company’s EOS Rebel line of digital SLR offerings. The new cameras called the EOS Rebel T5i and it’s the flagship model in the EOS Rebel line.

The T5i uses an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. The camera also uses the Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor and boasts an ISO range of 100-12,800. That ISO range can be expanded to 25,600 in H mode. Canon promises that the new digital camera will deliver crisp and detailed images in lowlight conditions and can shoot continuously up to five frames per second.

The digital camera also boasts a cross-type autofocus with nine points of focus. The camera supports Live View mode and has a three-inch touchscreen LCD on the back. Canon has also unveiled a new lens to go along with the camera called the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM that comes in the standard kit lens bundle. The camera uses the Stepping Motor technology allowing the lens to smoothly and silently focus on the subject automatically.

The rear LCD is a variable angle unit offering intuitive touch controls making the camera easy to use for new photographers. As with any DSLR, the T5i has a wide range of full manual controls and creativity features. The camera features seven integrated Creative Filters and special handheld Night Scene, HDR Backlight Control, and Multi-Shot Noise Production modes. The camera can shoot full HD resolution video using a special movie mode. The camera body will be available in April starting at $749.99. Bundled with the previously mentioned kit lens the camera will sell for $899.99. A second bundle priced at $1099 will feature an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.
