This is my first DSLR. Right out of the box you can start taking pro photos with the camera set to full auto (A). I took the camera to a convention in DC and got the most amazing shots, especially with the zoom lens that came with the bundle. I shot 1080p video that looks stellar. You'll want a high speed memory card for the best videos.
My next test was some astro-photography. I went out to take some pics of a full Moon one night. I had the camera set on auto. I found what works best is putting it on manual. I had to figure out the best settings, but got it within about 4-5 minutes. I set the shutter speed to 1600 which is very fast (captures less light). The Moon is very bright in the night sky and you don't want a long exposure or it will appear like a blurry ball of light (I found that out). I experimented a bit more with the settings. I ended up with some Spectacular pictures of the Moon. I used the zoom lens to capture amazingly detailed crater shots. I posted the pics to Facebook & people couldn't believe it. They were in awe. I was amazed, also.
Long story short, easy camera to operate, amazing pics. The only downside so far is with continuous shooting, you get 3 pics per second, and auto-focus sometimes can't keep up with moving objects. You will still get awesome shots, but once in awhile you'll have a blurry one in the batch if you are shooting 20 or more in rapid succession. That's not enough to drop the star rating. This is an awesome camera for a first-time DSLR user. A huge step-up in picture quality & control from camera phones & regular digital cameras.
Buy the bundle if you can. You save $, and the zoom lens that comes with it is a must have! Love this camera!

This is my fifth digital camera, not counting smartphone, but first DSLR. Preceeding ones were two Nikon Coolpix and two Cannons "point and shoot." I bought the Rebel just before a trip to Hawaii, and I was concerned that I would struggle to learn it quickly enough to reliably use it. Not to worry. I used it landscape, closeups of flowers, rapid fire mode for crashing crazy surf, video mode, and the 300 mm telephoto as well. It worked just great. It allows one to use full automation of focus, aperture, and shutter settings, or various levels of manual control. Seems to have really good battery life, too. I definitely want to add more lenses for closeups and a bigger telephoto. After successful, but disappointing, experiences with the previous four cameras, I am blown away by this one. Don't forget to get UV filters for all lenses for dirt and scratch protection.

1st Time DLSR User
Posted by: bee4oreal from: on
As a first time DLSR user this camera has been pretty easy to use for a novice when set to automatic. I'm not very fond of the Auto Focus but the manual focus is fairly easy and fast to use. The shutter speed is fairly decent as well. Now as for the photos...the photos are excellent. I have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of photos that can be captured with ONLY what comes in the box and no other shooting accessories. Battery life is decent, but a higher capacity back up battery is recommended for a photo shoot surpassing 2+ hours. I have experienced some photos taken being lost or non-retrievable, but I have to chalk that up more to my extremely green inexperience with Pro Photography. This camera is good for the novice who likes to tinker a little bit, or the professional photographer. I like it a lot. For advanced shooting I would recommend a higer end camera with wifi uploading and an adjustable screen.

Love it..huge step up from point and shoot!!
Posted by: Rt87 from: on
Don't let the negative reviews sway you. Most likely those are from professional photographers or those who have used dslrs in the past. This camera is not for them.
This camera is for the every day guy/gal who is stepping up from point and shoot and is trying to learn how to take a more professional picture.
The camera is light, takes excellent pics and videos. It does have some drawbacks like auto focus skews a bit on videos, but pictures come out outstanding.
Hit up youtube..search canon T5.
Checkout reviews, user videos and pictures and be amazed.
Then grab one while you can!!

Bought as a gift...A+
Posted by: D3Grafiks from: on
I'm a graphic artist and I bought this as a gift for my fiancé when she expressed an interest in photography. I'm very impressed with the photo quality that can be had from this package. That being said, you must READ THE MANUAL to enjoy the full potential of this camera. The learning curve isn't that steep, but If you just want to point, shoot and go pop your SD Card into the kiosk this may not be for you...there are many of those cameras available out there.
If you are new to photography and serious about capturing truly stunning images, read the manual, get yourself a book on photography, then play around with the settings and experiment with the different lenses and shoot shoot shoot. Best Buy even offers classes on digital photography at our local store, maybe yours too.
For the $ this is a fantastic entry level set up.

I bought this camera in part because I was looking to get a DSLR for better picture quality, but also because this was a phenomenal deal. Retailers still sell the camera alone for $595. Getting the 75-300 lens with it is an incredible bonus as well.
I've never had a DSLR before, so I was a bit nervous about using it. It proved to be VERY easy to use right out of the box. There are many options for taking pictures, as well as picture quality, size, effect, etc. It has incredible battery life. It's very stable - while in motion I have been able to capture images that show no signs of movement.
The ONLY drawback to this one is that it does NOT have the fold-out screen. But don't let that sully your opinion of this camera - the benefits far outweigh this one minor detail.
Bottom line - if you're looking for a good camera to start shooting, or even if you're looking to upgrade from an older model, give this camera deal a shot. It's not the newest out there, it doesn't have the most bells and whistles. But it is an excellent camera and a better deal.

Great improvement over compact digital cameras.
Posted by: DrPhoto from: on
After many years of compact digital and iPhone photography I now realize what was missing after using the Canon EOS Rebel T5. It travelled with me through Europe and took over 2000 shots. Very few were ruined shots as the automatic settings did most of the decision making in terms of focus, shutter-speed and f-stops.
I also appreciate the many added features provided by a DSLR camera with flexible and interchangeable lens capabilities. The 18 mm wide-angle is superb in close museum settings. The additional weight of a larger camera was not that onerous and of DSLRs the Rebel is actually light. Where this camera shines in comparison to the smartphone and compact digitals, is in low light photography.
The battery is good for about 500 shots so buy a spare. One, or at most two 16 MB, 10 speed chips is all you would need for 10 days of travel. Stay with a couple of smaller capacity chips so that a failure of one would result in a less catastrophic loss. I am still learning about the may capabilities of this entry-level DSLR camera and am pleased with my purchase. I have read that for a bit more money the Canon EOS Rebel T5i is a bit better, but I wonder whether I could notice the image difference.

Easy to use DSLR camera
Posted by: Buffy from: on
This is an easy to use DSLR camera once you get the hang of using it. I came from using a point & shoot camera for years. This has a fully automatic setting that will adjust everything great. You can see what your photo will look like by looking through the view finder, or using the live mode, which shows it on the LCD screen on the back.
This camera takes great HD movies also. I was considering getting a separate video camera but don't need to since the HD video is a great quality.
I was told by a professional photographer that this is a great starter DSLR camera. It will most likely be the only DSLR camera that I buy since it has so many great features!
I would recommend this to a friend. In fact, I had bought one for my daughter as a graduation present and liked it so much I bought one for myself.
This bundle is a great deal when it goes on sale for $450. I like the Canon case for carrying the camera and lenses. It has room for the battery charger, software discs and the user manuals.

The most complete and exciting camera bundle ever.
Posted by: xBoxScion from: Sand Springs, OK on
This is what you want, a camera with the look and feel of a traditional professional piece, but with the added convenience of digital tech. The body, standard lens, battery recharger, and a soft bag to put it in. And then they add in this monster 300mm lens that just tells all of those distant images, "Come here", get in my camera. It was a pleasure buying such a classic set up. Yeah!
