Last month, Canon introduced the EOS Rebel T5i , a camera that’s likely to become one of the most popular around.

Despite it’s size (it’s a dSLR, so it’s much bigger than a point-and-shoot), the images it can capture with APS-C 18 MP sensor are nothing less than stunning.

Here’s what the camera has to offer:

1. APS-C sensor, which is big by point-and-shoot standards, a huge factor in producing acceptable   images for microstock and/or POD websites at 100 percent resolution.

2. Shoots at 5 fps, making catching thrilling action shots much easier.

3. ISO to 12,800 (though I wouldn’t set it greater than 3600 because the noise elimination in post-processing is almost impossible with an ISO that’s any higher).

4. HD movie mode for video buffs.

5. Touch-screen is 3 inches and, as you can see in image, pulls out so that you can easily display your images without having to turn your camera around.

6. Some in-camera post-processing, which permits you to tweak with a choice of 7 filters.

7. Reduces noise by permitting you to merge 4 shots in-camera.

8. Contains 9 auto-focus points for a sharper image at small apertures.

9. Gives images finer details with 14-bit A/D conversion. 

10. New updated kit 18-55 mm kit lens, now with image stabilization for sharper subjects/objects. 

Many are saying that the Canon Rebel T5i isn’t much different from its predecessor the Rebel T4i, which is absolutely true.
