The new year is a perfect time to finally get that camera you always wanted. If you're tired of drooling over the photos your friends and family take with their DSLRs, then this 18-megapixel Canon is a great way to up your photo game. When we reviewed it, we thought that the Canon Rebel T5 was a perfectly solid camera, and it's got what you need to get started with more advanced techniques.
Canon's twin-lens starter pack is an awesome way to get in the DSLR club, giving you both the standard 18-55mm kit zoom, along with the long telephoto 75-300mm, which is great for wildlife and sports. From the park to the ballet recital, this bundle is perfectly priced at only $499.
