Thanks for the info. I’ll probably be doing mostly family event stuff and vacation photos. I’ve just been terribly disappointed with the landscapes I’ve gotten with my point & shoot camera, and the idea of taking so many shots per seconds enticing because maybe I’ll get some where everybody’s eyes are open.
I thought the same thing about the Abe’s price, and even tried to order there after the last Canon deal (Canon T5 deal from April 23, 2015). After placing my order, Abe’s called me to ask if I was sure I wanted the international version since the warranty was different.
Woot, is the this the USA version (SKU#: CNEOSRDT5I1855U, Part#: REBELT5I 18-55 USA) or the international version (SKU#: CNEOSRDT5I1855, Part#: 8595B003)
Does this camera bundle have a full USA warranty? If so, I’m in for one.
Hmmm. I don’t know I can agree that it’s better than the Sony a6000, which is a mirrorless camera. The Sony has a better sensor, higher ISO, 11fps, wifi. True that the Canon has the touch screen and the swivel, which the Sony doesn’t have, and it has a better lens selection, BUT for an entry level (which both are) do you need a huge selection of lenses? Sony’s e-mount provides a good selection. I think the biggest thing for me is that Canon hasn’t redone their internal specs for a while now so they just feel older. I still think this is a good deal though if you want a decent entry level dSLR, but check out the Nikon 3300 and 5300 too.
Oh, just reread you post, is your shadow because you’re using the built in flash while also having a long zoom lens? You can try to switch to a shorter lens, or attach a flash with a diffuser attachment or that you can bounce the light off the ceiling.
I have a T1i. Are the AF and image stabilization lenses that came with the T1i interchangeable with the T5i? Is the lens with the T5i an improvement in technology over the kit lenses that came with the T1i?
I don’t use a tent or box as I have to have the jewelry at just the right angle so I hold it and crop out my finger. What would be the best lens. I have a canon powershot A630 but with 3 websites should upgrade.
Can’t you just use an alligator clip stand or something similar to hold the item in the light box? This seems like a cheaper kit than a whole new camera (assuming your current camera’s quality is still acceptable).
You get the body plus two lenses (18-55mm and 75-300mm Lenses) for $379 plus free shipping, but it’s a deal that runs out sometime tomorrow (20hrs +/- from the posting of this comment). I guess it boils down on if you really want a great deal on a good solid camera with two lenses, or a moderate deal on a slightly fancier model with only one lens.
