I am looking at the 60D or the T5i. I am not seeing much on here for the 60D any reason for that? It looks like the 60D may be a better build than the T5i. Any input of advice is appreciated. My Xsi works great but anything much over an ISO of 400 gets pretty noisy. I have seen a pretty good deal on an import model of the 60D is this a bad idea? I take good care of all my equipment.

Thanks

ETA: update my original ISO exaggeration of 100.

ISO 200-400 on an xsi should not be pretty noisey by any means. Are you under exposing and then pushing the exposure in post on ISO 200+ shots?

I am reluctant to recommend anything if ISO 200 noise is bothering you as noise at ISO 400 and below really hasn't changed much over the recent Canon DSLR's as the focus has been lower high ISO noise, better video, better auto focus etc..

Weird. The XSi produces perfectly usable images in the ISO 100-400 range. At 800 it does get noticeably noisy. Images are unusable at ISO 1600.

Can't really recommend either of those cameras: the 60D has more features and seems to have a better build, whereas the T5i has a newer sensor.

strange, my old Rebel XSi /450D produced clean "usable" images at ISO 1600

Maybe Canon gave me a different sensor in my XSI !

Edited my original post fix my low ISO exaggeration. Honestlly over 400 say 600 or 800 I feel like the noise is bad. I will post some examples. Hoping one of these other cameras will do better. Any suggestions?

This is a possibility let me check and post an example.

60D has the same battery as the 7D and 5DII and onwards. Top LCD screen. Bit of an in-between camera between consumer and semi-pro models. If you can get one, they're a step up from the rebels mostly because of that bigger battery, pretty cheap these days too. Gray vs. white market is a separate and personal choice, pros and cons either way that I won't get into.

The 60D and the T5i are going to have basically the same noise performance so if cost is not an issues I would recommend the 60D due to better ergonomics, better build quality, and the added features of the XXD series.

Noise at ISO 800-1600 will be somewhat better than the XSI but not hugely improved. The biggest difference is that even though overall noise may not be dramatically better with 18MP vs. 16mp when printing or sharing online it will be less noticeable due to higher pixel density. Similiar to how some camera's used "Pixel binning" to reduce noise on high ISO shots by only offering a reduced resolution output at higher ISO's.
