Canon EOS Rebel T5
The predecessor to the popular T3, the Canon Rebel T5 doesn't have enough upgrades.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 5/18/2014

The Canon EOS Rebel T3 is one of the top selling DSLRs, but its successor hasn't really made many updates from the 2011 model. If you find the Canon Rebel T5 for a low price, it's still a decent camera but the Nikon D3300 and Pentax K-3 both have better specs for a similar price. The 3 fps burst mode is on the low end for this category. And while the sensor is still decent, you'll get more detail with the D3300, which doesn't have the anti-aliasing filter. And while the maximum battery life of 600 shots sounds better than most compacts, it's on the low end for the category. The EOS Rebel T5 does improve on the video quality and increases the size of the LCD screen, but the features are a little dated compared to similar models.
