I've owned this since shortly after it was released. It's a great camera, I put it through A LOT.

The photos are great, and video quality is excellent. The internal mic is actually better than I expected from an internal mic. You can buy an external, but it has to be a mono mic, stereo mics don't work.

It handles high iso very well.

I don't find it very bulky or heavy, which was a very important factor in purchasing, as I'm smaller framed. I take my camera everywhere, and also tend to cover festivals, so weight & size was important.

The focus is off just a smidge on mine, and it's definitely not a user issue. Higher end cameras let you manually adjust the focal plane, the rebels don't. A drawback if you need precise focusing with a wide open aperture.

Also, when recording video at the highest setting, Canon put in a 12 minute limit. There is a hack to make it automatically start recording again, but it still stops at 12 minutes no matter what and you lose 1-2 seconds each time. You can get up to 24 minutes by lowering the video quality.

I'd still definitely recommend this camera, or any rebels, to amateurs or semi pro's who don't need lengthy recording time. Although, at this point, I might look at a newer model. Cameras do have a life span, and this one hasn't been produced since June 2012.

Overall a good high quality camera within the budget. I've had this camera for years and it has done the job considering good quality pictures. The only con I can say is that when I started getting into recording videos I realized it doesn't automatically focus while in record mode :(

es una buena camara y tiene muy buena calidad así como permite una buena grabación de vídeo, es una gama semi-profesional y perfecta para las personas que quieren empezar en la fotografía, posee muy buena calidad y su compatibilidad con flashes y lentes análogos es perfecta.

A camera of very high capacity, meets every one of my whims, without a doubt this camera does not disappoint and Canon always fulfills what was promised, I only had the opportunity to try it since it has a friend, but I would like to have one of my own Try it!

I love my little camera it's been almost a year since I bought it. I'm an enthusiastic of photography and since I bought it I've learnt a lot more and my opinion is that if you are not a professional (and get paid) and you are not rich, you don't need more than this, you will only notice a reasonable change in better images with a full frame body but its much more expensive, so if you are looking for a crop sensor this is a great option because it's smaller than others. It's always better to put your money in glass just be careful and make sure that the lens you buy performs good in the camera, you can check the lab tests on dxomark. com, anyway this sl1 is a really good dslr that you can get with a decent budget. I would be happier with the articulated screen that the t5i has but you don't really need it.

This camera is the best. It is easy to use for beginners and also has all the options for more advanced photographers. The battery lasts a long time and charges quickly. My husband and I have used this camera to film short videos as well and we love the quality. We were surprised how good the sound is on the video. I would recommend this camera
