Canon EOS Rebel T100 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens Kit, 18 Megapixel Sensor, Wi-Fi, DIGIC4+ and Live View Shooting
This Canon EOS Rebel T100 15-55 Kit Camera seems like a fairly good camera and has great potential. It allows you to customize all sorts of different shots in just about every way possible. You have to know something about photography to understand what it all does. I'm not very knowledgeable about photography so I'm still trying to learn what all the camera can do. But to start with I took just basic pictures with landscape mode and also portrait mode. That was very easy to do and understand. And the pictures came out very good. In low light they could have been better. But that's when adjusting the settings comes in, which I don't know how to do yet. The main problem came in on the videos. The video image quality is very good but I really do not like how the video focus works. The auto focus with video is limited. The focus ring does not turn and focus automatically as you move around. With auto focus you can only focus a video right before you start recording. So it's best to focus while zoomed out, then start recording. It handles the distance changes better that way. Also in auto focus if you start out focusing up close on something then start recording, the camera won't change focus on things any further away than that. So in order to be able to change focus if you've started up close or in zoom you have to start in manual focus mode. Then focus manually through out the video by turning the focus ring. If you can get it to auto focus differently I haven't discovered how. This camera has too many options and buttons to even begin to list them all. I love that it has a timer. And also love that you can manually get an extremely sharp focus on an object by pushing a button to zoom in on it, then focus it, then zoom back out and take your picture. The main menu is very easy to access. You can change your picture quality to 10 different settings. It comes with a manual but it's very short so you have to go online to get a more detailed one. The clicks are loud so if you are taking pictures and trying to be sneaky about it, you will be noticed. It's extremely lightweight and comes with the camera, a strap, battery, charger, and an 18-55mm lens. I don't know if it normally does but mine also came with a 32GB SD Card.
