Remote for Canon Rebel T5

Is the Canon Rebel EOS T5 compatible with any kind of remote? There is so little information about this that I can find - the T5i is, but I'm not sure about the T5. I am about to purchase this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008Y3Z3ES?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A1WFSHX6J483SX
but am not sure it will be of any use. Please help!


Hi Anne Marie,

Thanks for your question!

You should have no problems with compatibility with that remote for your Canon Rebel t5. I confess that I have not tried that exact combination of accessory and Canon camera, but the cord for the t5 and t5i should be no different.

The company that is marketing the remote cord has a good reputation for customer service. It's always best to give it a try and soon as you receive your remote. If you have issues, you can return for a replacement remote or try a different model.

I am often cautious when things are priced so low. I purchased a cheap remote once for my 5d Mark III and regretted it because I had issues with it during a big shoot with a soccer league.

The one you picked looks like a winner.

Congrats, by the way, on getting a great camera. The Canon Rebel t5 is a fine camera. It made my Top selling Canons for under $500 list.


You get a lot of quality and capabilities for a great price with the t5. Anne Marie, you already know them, but for the other readers, here are the specs on the Rebel t5:


-18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor with DIGIC 4 image processor

-EF-S 18-55mm IS II standard zoom lens

-3-inch LCD

-EOS 1080p full HD movie

-Continuous shooting up to 3fps

-Scene Intelligent Auto mode, creative filers, built-in flash


Can you please get back to me and let me know how it works for you? I want to make sure I gave you good advice. I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again,
Bruce
