Seems even lower stock than a3000. I think UPC is 013803238198 but not sure

A3000 will give better image if you can find one. This sensor is same as T2i

Saw a boxed up display model of T5 at Newmarket. There's another Rebel model there and a few zoom lenses on clearance.

Is this an upgrade from a T2i?

Not really. T5 is same as t6 without wifi. Inhav a t5i and it's better than a t6 a d t5. It's not a bad deal. If I was looking I'd buy.

Wow 1080p! Stand in line folks! This technology is so old it's not worth investing in. This is not a deal if you plan on shooting videos with it. If I were you, I'd wait for the 4K cameras to go on sale since the 5k models will be released within a few months. Don't invest in 1080p! Save your money and get something 4K! You'll thank me later I promise

I use 2 camera bodies for professional photo work, and they both don't shoot 4k. For anyone wanting a camera better than a cellphone to take photos of kids, vacation, etc, this is a hot deal. Even the used market doesn't sell this cheap.

I don't understand how your statement is relevant to anyone who is interested in purchasing this camera.

I mean. I guess you could be buying this for video... But it's primarily a camera. I understand what your getting at but for this price you can have a great camera for taking high quality pictures and I wouldn't be surprised if the 1080p video this takes is better quality than your cell phones 4k video camera (really don't know tho)

It has a resolution of 18.1 megapixels (5,184 × 3,456). 4K is 3,840 x 2,160. Shock means it takes images at a resolution higher than 4K (we are talking about a camera not a camcorder)

If you want something for videos, don't forget that cameras can record for up to 30 min (unless if you use a custom firmware which I don't think that's what the majority of people do)

Finally, the resolution isn't the most important spec of the camera, otherwise, a professional camera is the same thing as a low end one because they both record videos at 1080p.

For anyone looking for a nice entry level DSLR, you can't find a better $/quality

I bought the last one at Markville. It was a display model. Many thanks OP. Surely it's not high end, but how can you go wrong for the price? I also called the 9th/Reesor location and the guy said they had just the display model body in stock but they weren't selling the lens with it.
