I actually shivered when I saw the professional-looking image with its crisp detail, slightly blurred background and gorgeous colors.

What experts didn't like
While they are in focus, well-lit areas, though still not great, stay relatively detailed at higher ISO sensitivity settings; still, the images get mushy and noisy.

Overall, you might prefer to rely on manual focus when you film with the T5 due to the camera's terrible autofocus in video mode.

However, it is rather noisy as the mirror assembly flaps away; stealthy it’s not.
- Digital Trends
In our tests the T5 struggled the most when it came to producing sharp, detailed images—even with the newer 18-55mm IS II kit lens.

Slow burst mode & Shallow buffer.
