Canon Rebel EOS T5/EOS 1200D

This is just going to be a quick review of the Canon Rebel T5/ EOS 1200 D from point of view. I have no affiliation with the Canon company itself. This is just my personal, unbiased opinion.

This was the second camera I owned. The first was a Kodak and while I loved it very much, I could not get the up close image quality that I was striving for. I would definitely recommend this for a beginner photographer to help them learn the aspects, angles, and learn what they can do with what they have, They will be so much better at what they do when their images come out clearer and it will boost their self-confidence. All in all, I have to give this camera a 4 out of 5 stars in my review. This was the camera that helped me get an edge on what I wanted to do as an outdoor photographer.

    I am really a novice in photography. I like the simple and clear explanation about the product especially for beginner.

    Can you add more photographs in the review as it will have more impact as I enjoy review with pictures?

    Overall simple enough for a novice like me to make a decision on the model to purchase. 

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your review on the Canon Rebel Camera.  Have you any pictures of the camera?  I would love to see what it looks like.  I am in the UK and am looking for a new camera to buy.  Where can I get this from please?  Which would you say is the best Canon or Nikon?

    • Sherrane says:

      Thank you for your feedback. I do have pictures of the Canon Rebel camera.

      Here is a link for Amazon so you can see what it looks like. You can also get them from Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Canon and anywhere that would sell cameras and equipment. The next time I post a review, I will make sure to add pictures with it also. I personally like the Canon, but the Nikon is nice too. I have used both and they both take good quality pictures. When you buy a new camera, you have to learn it like anything else and the more you use it, the better it is for you.

      Thank You,

    This is indeed a great post. Most photographers don’t know the right camera to use for their work and inturn don’t give the best pictures after a shot. My son is into photography and doesn’t know which camera he could use to start up with. I love the qualities I’ve seen in this camera. Your review on this canon rebel T5.I love forward to more of these informative post.

      You are right, most people do not know which camera to choose for their work. It also takes getting to know and learn the camera you are using. I started with a Kodak when I got my first digital camera. Although I loved it, I did not like the quality of it or the fact that my zoom lens only went so far. With the Canon, you have so many more options and interchangeable lenses as well so you can get a great close up picture. I really like the quality pictures the Canon Rebel T5 takes. I feel if your son has used a camera before and wants to upgrade, this is the perfect camera for him to do so. He has to learn it as well to get used to it and make it work for him. I am glad you liked the post and thought it was informative. I do plan on doing more reviews and make them just as, if not more informative as this one. Tell your son Good Luck with his photography and choosing his next camera.

      Thank you for your feedback.
