I got
EOS Rebel T5 EF-S 18-55mm IS II Kit & EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Refurbished for $260 after tax from canon directly few days ago. Does it make any sense to return that and get on this deal as I haven't used 75-300mm lens yet. I have been playing around with 50mm 1.8 that i bought along with it. Also I learned, I cannot use it on the go while outside. Also, i cannot get good pictures with low lightning with t5. Would t6 take better pictures in low light as it has higher ISO or invest in good flash. Any suggestions/input would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

Not really; you get wifi and marginally better low light performance and a better processor. It's up to you if those features are worth the extra 134 bucks. I've heard the 75-300 lens is junk, but don't have any experience with it.

The T6i/s would be a better upgrade, overall but for better low light performance you'll either have to go with a Nikon, Sony, or Full Format. Or that's what the reviews all say.

If you're not happy with the performance, return it. 260 is by no means an amazing deal for the T5 kit refurb. You may also be better served by a mirrorless system.

I would say No (Big time). Because these two cameras are virtually the same, except added WiFi feature to T6. If you don't use this feature, you are a lot more likely to use the additional lens already included in your package at substantially lower price tag. With all the money you already saved, you can add a cheap WiFi SD card, in unlikely event that Wifi is a deal breaker and still save substantially.
But then, look at features in this link, and decide for yourself:

BTW T5, depending on where it is sold is also called: Canon EOS 1200D or EOS Kiss X70, all the same camera body.

sometimes its not the camera, both of those kit lenses are no where near fast lenses and are decent at best. what setting(s) are you using? are you cranking up the ISO to make up for the lack of a fast lens?

the nifty fifty is great but the af is slow and if you got the older version, it is a bit loud but can take some really great pics for the price. try getting used to manually focusing with it. Also look at using one of the modes to make shooting on the fly a bit less daunting. ap - aperture priority mode, set your aperture and the camera will do the rest. sport mode for fast moving shots or shutter priority where it works just like aperture, but with your shutter of course. practice a lot, and enjoy yourself!

the t5 isn't the greatest but it shouldn't stop you from taking some great pics, see if you can borrow some decent lenses or perhaps rent them to see if its truly the camera. best of luck!

I know it's a lil older but throw a 60d in that race, it's a worthy competitor for what your cousin plans on doing. the 60d has more "pro" features, personally I like not having to look at the screen nor having to stop because I need to make adjustment on the fly. Its a very good camera that can be had at some great prices, and it shines in the video dept. btw if you haven't look into magic lantern, its great for the canon cameras they support.

Thanks, for all of your comments. I know for sure these are not point and shoot cameras. I HAVE to do my homework and know how of these cameras before I invest in any other cameras. I guess I have to see the limitations and try to get rid of them before I invest in something better.

What do you mean you can't use it on the go while outside?
I find the T5 to take pretty good pictures even in low lights. When you say you cannot get good pictures what are you comparing it to? Are you using flash or no flash? Are you using Auto Mode or Manual mode?

For mainly videos, get a mirrorless camera. Panasonic mirrorless makes great video cameras

when it comes to dslr, most of the time it's the lens that really sets things apart but you have to know what you are doing in order to extract the most out of your camera. there is a bunch of stuff to read up on the interwebs, but like with anything you have to practice. get yourself a tripod if you don't have one already, it will keep everything stable thus making the whole experience better.

Be careful with this hobby! its addictive and it gets expensive really quick, but its by far one of the most rewarding hobbies you will ever pick up.

I was mentioning about "nifty fifty" lens and using it outdoors. Also, I was using my bro in law t6i few days ago, and comparing it with auto mode, low light photos were "good" compared with t5.
