Canon EOS Rebel T5i
I read my stadiums camera policy and it didn't say it was banned, just no telephoto lenses, so I took the chance of bringing it. I was so nervous that one of the stadium employees would say it wasn't allowed but no one had an issue with it.
This is a better bundle, IMO (the 18-55 + 55-250). None of those crappy junk filters and converters (which you will never use, because you neither need them nor do they make your images look good) and it costs $50 less. I have the Amazon Basics tripod and it's pretty good for a $20 tripod around the yard. I'm not doing anything too difficult with it, but it can handle a decent amount of weight.
Only things you may want to add in the future are:
You can get the Rebel T5i with the 18-55mm kit lens for $650 on Amazon. My T2i is still going strong. I splurged on the 17-55mm as my walk-around lens, but the kit lens is quite good.
I do plan on shooting outdoors as much if not more than I shoot indoors. You've set my heart on experimenting with the shotgun mic now.
I like the Canon. I was looking at the t3i and now looking at the t5i. This one was the first that popped up. What do you think about it?
It seems lighting is far more important than I expected so that's going to have to be considered now. I'm going barebones in this department for now.
You've sold me on the white balance card too.
And yeah I didn't even think about the bag but I'll need one as well.
I'm not dead set on the fun focus effect yet, I think getting wrapped up in fancy stuff before I've gone out shooting a single thing yet will be a mistake.
Thank you so very much for being so helpful and comprehensive.
The Canon EOS Rebel T5i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit will do it for $600.
Someone that knows DSLR setups might better be able to suggest a product, but I found that from a quick search on amazon.
Definitely would want to get the Canon EOS Rebel T5i EF-S Ranked as the best low budget camera at your suggested price. It has excellent customer reviews with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating.
I'm looking to get a digital SLR, and am looking at the Canon Rebel T5i. I have so many questions. Should I get a body only, and invest in lenses later?
I would like the camera to be able to take the weather; be it rain, dirt, and a bit of abuse, as I plan to use it mountain biking and for winter sports. The reason I was looking at the t5i is apparently they have a better processor? Or does that even matter? I'm looking to spend around $400-$600. the link is what I am tempted to buy. And what should I know about warranties if I buy stuff online regarding photography gear, is it still all based on a manufacturers warranty?
