LCD attachment on the Canon T5

The LCD screen on the Canon EOS Rebel T5 is fixed to the body. This solid attachment means that the connection between camera body and rear screen is very sturdy and the LCD is less likely to be damaged, for example, during a camera tumble than a hinged design. On the other hand, the fixed screen design does not make it possible to articulate the LCD for better visibility during odd-angle shots.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Canon T5 measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 460,000 dots. The panel is not touch sensitive.

One convenient feature of the T5 is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
