The Canon EOS Rebel XTi remains a very good first dSLR, but ultimately a disappointing followup to the XT, which cedes its lead to the Nikon D80.
Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
A fine camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i's more expensive 18-135mm STM kit (or body with another STM lens) is the only version that merits an unqualified recommendation. You can probably find better alternatives if you just want a sub-$1,000 dSLR for still photography.
While it's a perfectly fine camera when you're making the jump from a point-and-shoot, there are better choices than the Canon EOS Rebel T5.
The popular T5i/700D gets two successors with significantly updated features.
While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
While the Canon EOS Rebel T5i is -- almost literally -- the same solid camera as its predecessor, it's starting to lag frustratingly behind the competition in some ways.
Unless it's got some hidden tricks or deep price cuts in its future, the T5's entry-level dSLR competitors should have little to worry about.
Though it's a perfectly fine entry-level camera, there are better options for the money than the Canon EOS Rebel T3.
This basic dSLR doesn't stand out from the competition.
