About - Canon EOS Rebel T5i
The EOS Rebel T5i is an 18-megapixel camera with an 18mm-55mm kit lens that has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8mm-88mm. It has a 3-inch LCD (1,040,000 pixels) and includes touchscreen capability. It also includes a through-the-lens viewfinder, which is helpful when composing in bright light.

Because it accepts interchangeable lenses, and includes a mirror and a through-the-lens viewfinder, we consider this model an SLR.

The camera's kit lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.5. The camera's shutter speed range is 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.

The EOS Rebel T5i stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It captures images as JPG or RAW files at a top resolution of 5184 x 3456 and full HD-resolution video as MOV files at a top resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 30p fps.

Like most digital cameras, this model comes with a proprietary rechargeable battery.

The image stabilization system for this camera is optical.

The EOS Rebel T5i measures 5.2 inches wide by 3.9 inches high by 3.1 inches deep, and weighs 30 ounces (1.9 pounds) (with battery, memory card, and strap).
About This Brand

Canon is the market leader in point-and-shoots, with an extensive line of models, which are known as PowerShots. Its budget line, the A series, is made up of compacts and subcompacts.  Canon's subcompacts are known as SD ELPHs. Its SX-series are mostly super zooms and come in various sizes and include smaller or larger feature sets. Canon has the D-series compact, which it claims are waterproof and shockproof. Its high-end series, the S and G lines, include special modes and manual features, such as the ability to shoot RAW files and to focus manually. The EOS Rebel series helped to define budget SLRs. Other SLRs include a host of pro and more-advanced consumer models, including models that have very large, full-frame sensors. Canon also offers a wider selection of lenses than most brands.

Best Uses
I have come to enjoy this camera. I find it has many features that I could not utilize in my previous Digital point and shoot. A wide range of auto settings take in many day to day use and for more advanced users, 4 manual modes to record your own nuance.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
