I got this as a Christmas gift as I was in need of a better digital camera. I needed an SLR for my photographic art that I do. So, I liked this and some others in the EOS series, and I ended up getting this particular one as a gift. I have an old analogue Rebel 2000. This works just like it-except this is a digital SLR camera whereas my older one isn't. So it was easy to figure out how to use many basic features to get started. It's nearly identical in function to the older Canon cameras. Having said that, the lenses I had from years ago work seamlessly with the T3. I was doing a lot of research or trying to on comparing different models within the series and one mid range camera too by Canon. So, here are some things I learned in the process of looking and part of why I say bang for the buck, you can't go wrong with this camera. The image quality is amazing. I did some test shots in various light conditions-with and without the built in flash. The detail is impecable. The image quality is the same on this as are the other higher end Canon cameras. The image might be smaller by a few inches in either direction in comparison. So don't bawk at 12MP on this camera. Without any resizing, you can print at 150dpi an image of about 30" x 20". If you view it on your monitor, it's more like a little under 60" x 40". It's incredibly pristine at that. The video capabilites are HD, but it's 720p vs. 1080p on some higher end models by Canon. You will get better quality of video on this in poor light than some camcorders will in good light. With this, you have better quality optics than a camcorder. I did try some low light shooting with a class 6 card, and it did suffice. If you get a higher video resolution, you'll need a class 10 card. However, for 720p, you can get away with a class 6 card. The stock lens on this has a lower window so to speak compared to my old film Rebel. I like that because it will allow you to have a wider angle. I don't think this one has the calcium flouride coating like the ones shown, but I haven't found that to be problematic yet. It is a good lens and easy to use. However, if you electroniclly focus this lens while video recording, you'll hear the motor. If you set it and leave it, it's not a problem. You can get a quieter lens if you want. The higher end Canon's do have a flip screen for the LCD monitor built in. The higher the model, the more resolute the screen is. You won't complain with this T3 on quality of the monitor-believe me. You can get a higher resolution screen on a more expensive Canon. However, if you don't need that, you'll start finding this T3 more appealing on that. This particular camera is slower than others that are higher end models with Canon in that you won't be able to shoot as many frames per second continuously compared to others. If you do model shoots for magazines or someting and need higher continous action, then you might want to consider one of the next models up. Otherwise, this will do pretty much what the others like it will do. This has a somewhat trademark contrast of sorts indicative of Canon-which I like. From an artistic standpoint, I like that. It's not quite as sterile as some other competitors might be in that regard. If you've used this line of camera's before, or if you've seen some of the images, you'll see what I mean over time. Sometimes you can see a near texture on the LCD when you take a shot-almost. The white balance on this thing is about perfect. You don't have to do any fancy or advanced adjustments to get that. On most images, when when I've gone to adjust that with my editing software, there are subtle differences in comparison to the white balance before and after adjusting. I've tried it with a few test shots, and an image from an older XSi that someone else shot. This thing is quite accurate. If you're use to a point and shoot camera, the difference in detail will amaze you. You won't have that subtle ghost effect over everything with this one-there's reasons for that. However, know that you won't have that effect on this camera or any subtle white haze. You don't need any special filters to get that quality but they wouldn't hurt either. I'll say that. You have a much more controled range with this versus a point and shoot of any brand or quality. You can also upgrade the lenses to whatever and swap those out. If you're new to this line up or product, and you see it's more expensive in comparison to a lot of other point and shoot cameras, keep this in mind. This is a professional quality camera. It has the same image processor as some pricer versions like it. You can use this like a point and shoot, but you have options on this that a traditional consumer camera won't give you. I chose and considered this one because of a few reasons. It made more sense to me to get something compatible with my old lenses than switching ot a competitor and having to replace lenses that are perfectly good. If you buy a competing product with like specs, it will cost more and anyone will tell you it's not going to be quite as user friendly in comparison. For my particular needs, I am starting as a digital artist. I do certain special effects shots and use those and other still lifes as the basis for works of my art. I needed a better camera than what I had. It opens up a lot of other possibilities for sure. Money is tight-and this ended up being a very welcome Christmas gift. Had I not gotten this as a gift, I probably would have picked this one out anyways as for what I use it for, it does as good of a job as some other higher priced models. 1080p video would be nice and some other things, but for the video I plan on shooting, it will suffice. I almost have to shrink the image a bit for certain effects to take as the resolution is almost too much for what I do, and certain effects to come out like I want them to. I learned that from some experimenting quite fast. So given that, it's a no brainer. I didn't know this at the time, but some retailers sells a lovely starter bundle for a good price. I just happened to get the body/lens kit with a 4GB class 6 card, and a really nice Canon bag that goes with it. The grab bag that came in that bundle from Canon is one of the better bags I've seen. You can fit 2 camera bodies in it and 3 or so lenses. Then you have side pockets for things like batteries, cards, filters, caps, etc. It's a functional bag, and it's padded well. So far, I could not be happier with this camera. I know I just got it, but I've tinkered with it. It might be a little noisy when you have some really low light at night, inside, and an ISO 3200 speed. When I say low light, I mean very low ambient light. However, some things come out nice anyways without noise. It depends on the subject and how close or far away from your subject you are. If you have more "normal" light conditions-like a single overhead light bulb in the room...you will have no noise at all. I am still in learning mode, and I have yet to take this outside to use it and experiment, but so far inside, with dim lighting conditions, I am really impressed as to the quality of imagery this thing produces. There is no way I could get that same quality with what I was using before-a significantly cheaper digital camera. I took some personal pictures with my other cheapy digital, and I retook them with this T3. It's night and day in the quality. If you want a good camera, or an entry level professional camera, you won't be dissappointed with this one at all. There might be a learning curve for some or if you're trying to expand your capabilities artistically like I am now, but you'll start to see really quick how that all works.

Just purchased the T3 bundle from a department store (2 lenses 18-55mm and 70-300mm, starter lenses). The camera is very powerful and has lots of features. The one thing that surprises me is the lack of a rubber textured grip. I have a Canon T50 (yes, its old and it works fine) and that camera has a GREAT rubber grip. Why did Canon exclude a rubber textured grip on the T3? I cannot think of a single reason to exclude a rubber textured grip.

GREAT CAMERA

Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm IS II Kit:

Previously had a Canon Rebel and burned through quite a few rolls of film over the years but it took great pictures on vacation and of family events. WOW ... the Canon T3 DSLR is fantastic. Really great pictures and ease of use. I'm not a professional photog by any means but with this camera you can with a little imagination take some really good shots. I would recommend this camera especially for someone who is use to point and shoot cameras and wants to step up to a real camera.

      I have used several other brands of cameras. This canon camera is easy to use and by far much superior to other cameras. I am a beginner using this camera and feel like a pro at the quality of pictures it takes

        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm IS II Kit:

        I got this camera with the 18-55mm kit lens and the 75-300mm kit lens in a big bundle which included a flash, a camera bag, two extra batteries, a memory card.. etc. I had been looking at the T3i before this, but after seeing the bundle and reading dozens of positive reviews, I went with this one. So far, the battery life is great, the features (although I'm still figuring out Manual mode) are excellent, and the overall camera build is perfect for my small hands. My only complaints are: 1. the quality in burst mode / when shooting sports (I outdoor rock climb) is not too grand. Lots of blurry images and it tends to turn the flash on in broad daylight--thus throwing me and my friends off the rock. 2. Auto-focus is unbearably slow in live view. Don't even try. The auto focus in the view-finder is much better, although it won't focus quickly (or sometimes at all) on moving subjects! It may not sound like it, but I do LOVE this camera! I only started photography about 2 years ago, and upgraded to this from a point and shoot. GREAT first DSLR, and I do recommend it for macro photography, portrait photography, etc. Maybe not professional sport photography, but hey! You could certainly make it work with the large number of settings on this camera.

          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm IS II Kit:

          The T3i is a great choice for an entry-level DSLR and I am extremely satisfied with the purchase. I have been amazed at the image quality, whether using an automatic mode, being fully creative in manual mode, or anything between. This is my first DSLR and yet it's making me look like a "pro" already with little experience. The difference between this camera and an average cheap point-and-shoot or smartphone camera is huge. I would recommend this camera to anyone, especially those new to DSLRs. The controls and menus are well thought-out and easy to use, so you can quickly and easily experiment with different settings to learn more about how they affect the photos. The instruction manual is well-written. One of the reasons I chose the T3i over some other similar Canon cameras was the swivel LCD display. It turns around to protect the screen during storage, and it can help you see what you're doing if you need to reach over a fence, wall, crowd, etc. or use a short tripod. This camera has so far been very fun to use and has given me zero frustration, unlike every other camera I've ever owned. I am more excited about photography than ever, thanks to this camera. It is nice to know that if it ever comes time to step up to another Canon body, I can still use the same lenses and accessories that I use with my T3i.

            I bought my T3I a couple years ago and have had nothing but fun ever since. Now my hobby is 100% taking pictures. I love it. I love learning everything about this camera. I'm so proud after posting a picture to the different social networking sites and friends responding how beautiful my pictures are. I like my camera more than I do most DSLR cameras popping out onto the online stores & market. I am a Canon owner for life. Now that I am on 100% disability I've learned to take up my spare time being 'creative'. I can be totally upset and go off to the local park and start taking pictures and forget the bad things that life throws your way. Thanks to ALL the Quality Control specialists that work for Canion. Like I said in the beginning, I have NEVER had an issue with my T3I and can't find anything negative online about my (T3I) camera. When I get the money I will upgrade to the 70D (an old mans dream). Something to hope and wish for, I'll keep saving and maybe get one before I pass on. My T3I will goto a grandson who also enjoys my photography hobby. Sorry this was so long of a review but really just a tip of the iceberg on how I feel about my camera. Best of luck to all new and old photographers out there with YOUR Canon camera. A special thanks to Canin for making such a great product!!

                I bought this camera a little while ago and I have just been waiting for it to disappoint me before I gave it five stars. But it honestly hasn't. My family and I take trips all the time and this is the main reason I wanted a nicer camera and I found that since I have bought this camera I bring it with me everywhere because it takes such great pictures. I absolutely love it. Also I saw that there was another person who said they could not use their camera with mac. I don't know if they are talking about a macbook or not but I had a 2010 macbook and I just recently got a macbook air and I can plug my camera into both of them. Thats just my experience with it.

                  I was very excited to get my EOS Rebel T3. It seems to have everything I need to actively pursue my hobby in retirement. My only disappointment is that I cannot attach the camera to my Mac because there is no recognition of the camera. I have to take the disc out of the camera and insert it into the computer to use the software that came with the camera. If I use my PC based camera I have no problem.

                    I've owned and used an AE-1, FTb, and EF for over 30 years. I finally decided to make the switch to digital about 6 months ago when my equipment got water damaged because of an unknown roof leak in my storage closet. I bought the T3 because I haven't been actively taking pictures for a while and I did not want to spend a lot of money to get into digital. Now, I'm hooked on photography again. I'm trying to get used to all the features and menus. So, I feel like a novice photographer again, but I'm having a great time. I'm not ready to upgrade yet, but I can see it happening someday and it will be another Canon camera. The T3 is definitely what I want for now.

                      This is an ENTRY level DSLR. Yet, it performs very well. The 12.1 MP sensor provides very nice, sharp pictures, with a low amount of noise (grainy). All 105+ Canon EF and EF-S lenses will fit it. When I put my 24-105mm red ring ( "L") lens on it, the results are difficult to distinguish from my higher end cameras. I will recommend this Canon T3 to anyone just starting in photography, or if you are making the switch from a P&S camera. The learning curve is VERY short as well, just put it on Auto Mode and you have instant success with very sharp, clear pictures. When you add to your collection of lenses, the quality of your pictures goes up as well. I highly recommend this camera.
