    Does canon eos rebel t5i have wifi?
    chet.bode
    7 months ago
    The T5i still includes old-style SLR features, such as a through-the-lens viewfinder, which can be helpful when composing a shot in bright light settings. One possible drawback is that the Rebel T5i lacks built-in Wi-Fi, which some other advanced cameras now offer.

Same as it ever was

The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is pretty much the same as the T4i, and that's a mixed blessing.

With its ease of use and powerful features, the T5i is a great step from a point-and-shoot or smartphone.

Canon EOS 700D/Rebel T5i In-Depth Review
3.8

June 2013: The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i replaces the very short-lived Canon EOS 650D / T4i but is almost indistinguishable from it in terms of design, operation and specification. Our tests have found the image quality and performance of both cameras to be identical and they use the same batteries and accessories as well. Accordingly, this review is a very slightly modified version of the EOS 650 review we posted in the summer of 2012. We've retained product images of the EOS 650D where there's no meaningful change in design, and except where indicated, any comments in the body of this review which reference the Canon EOS 650D / T4i are equally relevant to the Canon EOS 700D / T5i and vis-versa.

The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is essentially the same camera as its predecessor, and it's still a solid performer.
