Canon’s Rebel line of DSLRs has always offered an impressive mixture of features while remaining completely approachable. The recently released Canon EOS Rebel T5i continues this tradition as the new flagship of the Rebel line. Like the EOS Rebel 650D before it, this shooter boasts an 18MP CMOS sensor, a 9-point cross-type AF sensor, a 3-inch 1.04m-dot touch-sensitive vari-angle ClearView II LCD, and Full HD video mode, complete with continuous autofocus in movie mode with subject tracking; these are all contained in a body that feels more professional than its predecessor.

A redesigned 360-degree turning mode dial is one distinct new feature exclusive to the EOS Rebel T5i that provides a more fluid user experience while also boasting larger icons for finding the right mode in poor lighting. Budding shooters comfortable with the easy enhancement features of camera phone apps will also appreciate the EOS Rebel T5i’s seven creative filters, which can now be previewed in real time in Live View mode before an image is captured. In short, it’s packed with features to make the composition process easier than ever. For more details on all of this compact DSLR’s exciting features, roll over the image above.
