The EOS T5, Canon’s latest Rebel, isn’t much that different from the T2i, but it is a step up from the T3, its predecessor in that price category. The T5 has a crisper 18-megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor, up from the T3’s 12.2 megapixels. They both have the same ISO 100-6400 light sensitivity range and shutter speeds of 1/4000 to 30 seconds, but the T5 can shoot 1080p videos while the T3 can only shoot 720p.
Getting the most out of your Canon Rebel T5 requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your Canon Rebel T5. Misuse may damage the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
