Canon Rebel T3i vs T5i Comparison, What’s the difference?

The Rebel T5i had a very warm welcome lukewarm by users as far as Canon has undertaken to produce the improvements of the new body with respect to the T3i, the prevailing impression is that this is a soup heated. A sentiment similar was already warned in the transition from t2i to t3i, which has substantially introduced improvements "secondary" with the display and articulated in terms of ergonomics.

The difference between T3i and T5i:

By comparing the technical sheets of t3i and t5i is difficult to find the differences, but this does not mean that there are no.

Meanwhile, the bust, one of the main defects of the old model, and passed from 3.7 fps at 5fps, with a buffer for 22 shots in JPG (6 in RAW). The new CMOS sensor has always 18 megapixels but the sensitivity now reaches the ISO 25600 and, thanks to the DIGIC 5, Canon speaks of better management of the noise, the sensor, defined Hybrid, encloses another novelty that characterizes the T5i: how small Nikon series 1, integrates the pixel intended to support the focus in Live View, using the phase detection instead that the analysis of the contrast, thanks to this improvement, like its Predecessor T4i, Canon has introduced the autofocus in the video recording with premises decidedly interesting, especially looking at the excellent results of the J1 and V1, but the impression obtained from the first independent tests and disappointing, even using one of the new objectives STM, as the 40 MM 2.8 , we are still very far from speed and accuracy of classic cameras (albeit note the reduction of noise due to the new engine).

In all cases, like the t4i, the vocation of the T5i seems to be that of the video and in addition to the usual, practical, displays articulated (which keeps the same resolution of 1 million pixels) was introduced the capacitive touchscreen and a new control interface for simplified parameters of snap, also again inexpensive mirrorless EOS M.

Going to rake up the datasheet you notice also other improvements, such as for the AF that, while remaining at 9 points, all of them to form a cross, and something in the software, such as the shooting mode HDR, some preset in white balance and stereo audio recording in the room small novelty, in short, as well as those on the body, essentially attributable to a few touch on shape and arrangement of the keys, probably the idea of Canon was to confirm, in substance, a body that still selling well, adding some characteristic in the direction of VDSLR, Considering that more and more users to use it for the shoot, also with a view to a possible body of backup for the owners of 7D In this sense, the automatic focus was not a necessity, since it works – for choice – almost exclusively with the manual, perhaps resting on a Follow Focus, but could be a solution envisioned for the amateur photography, but the lack of efficiency highlighted so far by concrete evidence, does not seem to support this thesis. Furthermore, comparing the results in RAW at high ISO of preview with those of the T3i, it seems that the presence of the pixels for the hybrid AF in live view, has caused a loss of quality in the pictures (in spite of what the numbers and words of Canon saying).

Looking at the prices, the T3i with 18-55mm IS II today is located at less than $600, while the t5i, with the 18-55mm EF-S IS STM Lens, costs 150$ more. This price difference not only makes us long for the previous model but places the new cameras too close to the 60D, where there is a body better and more controls, reflect the fact that it would have been enough just to make everything more attractive this t5i in the field video, even the simple management of the video at 50/60p and with increased bitrate would have improved in the eyes of the fans of footage, which at the time, seek to make the best possible use of resources of t3i, t5i, 60D, etc. with the firmware Magic Lantern.
