what is 18-55mm EFS II lens Oct 26, 2013
Older film cameras came with a fixed focal length lens as part of the "kit", usually 50mm. Today's digital cameras come with a variable zoom lens of 18-55mm as part of the kit if you desire it. The EF part is the system used that lens mounts onto the body. The older Canon film cameras use a non-compatible FD mounting system. I have this lens and I have no complaints about it.
If it's a EF-S lense it will.
I think it is definitely worth it: you will have 18 megapixels in contrast to 12, a better range of high ISO settings with less noise, and my perhaps favorite thing: a swivel screen which enables you to see what you are shooting when the camera is held down low or above your head...without sitting on the ground or climbing on something. I love my t5i!
Would the basic 18-55mm EFS lens from the original Digital Rebel 300D work with this T5i body? Any problems or limitations? Sep 23, 2014
All EF and EF-S lenses will work on the t5i.....however.....if you are going to be recording video then the new 18-55 STM is what you really want to have. It will auto focus very quietly compared to the standard lenses. The older lenses can be quite noisy and the mics in the T5i will pick all that racket up. Now with the older lens I believe you could set it to manual focus and do fine, as long as the subject will be at a fixed distance. Hope I have helped you some. Rod
Depending on the memory card you have. I have recorded a 20 minute video.
My T5i is made in Japan. Both of my USM lenses are made in Japan. I do not own the 18-200, however.
It's really a matter of personal preference and what you plan to do with it. Both are great cameras and I'm sure you will be happy with either. After doing an exhaustive amount of research I selected the T5i because I plan on shooting stills and videos. The Canon out performs Nikon slightly in the video category, while Nikon has a slight advantage in low light shooting stills. If you do decide to go with the T5i I strongly recommend that you seek out "camerarec toby" on you tube. He has fantastic tips and training videos on the T5i that are free and yet invaluable. That being said I firmly believe that either camera will amaze you with their features and abilities.
What would best memory card be for 30 minutes of video and maybe 100 pictures? Sorry Im new, does video burn to CD then? Sep 27, 2014
Any SD card (not SD mini card) should work fine. For 30 photos they will all work since you can usually hold thousands of pictures (depending on your recording resolution and the GB card you use). Video is more the problem since it usually takes up more storage space and a faster card to do a better job. Cards are not real expensive. I bought a SanDisk 32GB Extreme Plus card with a speed of 80MB/s printed on the card front to use for movies. Works fine. Plenty of space on card. You burn the video to a DVD and it will play on most DVD players. Most programs that burn CDs also burn DVDs. The burning program should say.
Does the T5i use the same lenses that the t1i? Is there a substantial reason to upgrade from a t1i? Dec 31, 2014
the T 5 i has better speed when using the movie function and it has more monitoring capabilities for better viewing of shoot then older versions! Lenses are different as well!
