Canon has introduced EOS Rebel T5i DSLR camera, the new flagship model in its EOS Rebel line.
The EOS Rebel T5i comes with an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor. It ships with an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) and a continuous shooting speed of up to 5.0 frames per second (fps) united with 9 all cross-type AF focus points. It features a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II with touch controls and seven creative filters: ArtBold, Water Painting, Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Fish-Eye and Miniature.
"Built to make advanced photography creative and fun, the EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR Camera gives users exceptional image quality and fast, intuitive operation along with creative functions to help advance photographic expression," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.
The EOS Rebel T5i offers the ability to shoot in 1080p full-HD video in a number of recording sizes and frame rates. With Canon's Hybrid CMOS AF System and Movie Servo AF, the camera provides continuous AF for focus tracking of moving subjects by helping to reduce the camera's need to "hunt", resulting in a quick and smooth continuous AF. The camera also features a built-in stereo microphone with manual audio level adjustment to enhance sound quality.
Canon is expanding the lineup of STM lenses by adding one new lens, which now gives users three choices - the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM and the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5- 5.6 IS STM lens. The Canon EOS Rebel T5i comes bundled with Canon's new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM as the standard kit.
The EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR camera is scheduled to be available in April for an estimated retail price of $749.99 for the body alone; $899.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit, and $1,099.00 with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit. The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens also is also scheduled to be available separately in April at an estimated retail price of $249.99. India pricing and availability for both remain unclear at the moment.
