z9z9z9z9: Looking at the mode dial, it looks like this camera does NOT have AP or SP, just program, manual, and a bunch of scene modes.

Well what do you want with a 1/2,33" Sensor? F8, F16? Its going to be soft as hell.

Brandy101: I need help making a decision. I was loving my t1i, but the continuous shoot mode just recently quit, so my warranty covered me getting either a credit of $750 or the t3i. I am an amateur and only use it for family purposes (dance, sports, my kids posing in general). I have taken multiple types of shots from regular photos to sports. I'm a little confused in whether or not to take the store credit and add to it to get the T4i or just stick with the T3i. I'm sorry if this sounds very unprofessional, but I am not a professional. ;)
So if someone could kindly give me some advice on which one would be the better choice for sports, family portraits, etc. it would be greatly appreciated!!
Also what would be a nice decently priced lens for sports?

The T4i is a little faster in Burst mode(5Fps vs. 3,7) and also in AF, because it has all crosstype Af- Points like the 60D (9 crosstype Points vs. 1).
I would prefere the T4i for sports...
If you only ned a light tele (for closeups from a distance, in good light), the Canon Ef-s 55-250mm IS is a very good lens. Its sharp and has a Image Stabilisator. It's not that fast (F5,6) and AF is ok too. But it only cost like 199$.
Best for Sports, but more expensive is eighter a Fast Tele lens (F2,8) or a Prime Lense (E.g. 85mm F1,8 or 100mm F2.0).
I hope, this helps...

malcolm82: Again with a horrible F1.4 lens.
A camera this size with a normal zoom should have an aps-c sensor with a lens of around F3.5-5.6 such as the standard zooms on interchangeable lens camera's.

Just look at the size of the panasonic powerzoom lens:
http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic_x_14-42_3p5-5p6/2

Its total length looks about 32mm so it can easily collapse in a camera size much smaller than this one.

A micro four thirds sensor would be ok for a camera this size with a 5x zoom lens or for a much smaller camera with shorter zoom range but for this size with 3-4x zoom it really should be aps-c.

@Timmbits: the LX7 has a physically larger lens opening than the M4/3 Kits!
You can calculate it like this:
actual Focal length/aperture nr.= actual size of aperture.
LX7: 17.7mm /F2,3 = 7.7mm
M4/3: 42mm /F5,6 = 7.5mm !

In reply to:

happypoppeye: Whats a 1/1.2 sensor ...is that big or small, I have no idea...

1/1.2 sensor is by far the biggest Phone-sensor.
Normal Smartphones have a 1/2,5" sensor.

The new sensor has a aprox. 6times bigger surface area.

In reply to:

D1N0: you might as well get a point and shoot, when you are going to use lenses like this one

300$ for a DSLR with THIS lens, I belive *Greg VdB3* is dreaming...
But you asked for an alternative:
Fujifilm FinePix X-S1.
It only lacks the optical viewfinder and a little low light capabilities...

In reply to:

sir_bazz: Offer less features + charge more than the competition = Canon's recipe for success.

At least Canon added something to the MkIII that we haven't seen on a DSLR for some time.......mushy jpegs.

BTW: more MP itn't a feature...
And the MkIII has the best AF on the market today.
You should shoot RAW anyway for best quality.
Jpeg's only get Mushy from ISO 12800 upwards...

In reply to:

(unknown member): Absolutely gutless. $3500 and a sensor older than I am. On the other hand, incredulity will wear off quickly, and DPR can move on to the next order of business. If they had given it 81 or 83 this would drag out forever, and I don't think the DPR reviewers are up for that. Onward, valiant steeds! Shelter by nightfall!

"and a sensor older than I am" are you like one year old? :-P

In reply to:

justmeMN: If you want a viewfinder, the Sony FDA-EV1S is an additional $ 349 .99.

For people who use viewfinders, entry level DSLRs are a better value.

True story!
Nothing better than an optical Viewfinder.
BTW, I liked the Rebels very much, the IQ is exellent.
They are not big. I even think they are too small...

aerorail: can someone explain to me this apple thing...i don't get it
nevermind it won't make sense no matter what is written

minimal improvements since electronics are having a hard time finding new things that make sense same as phones and tv

QUICK run out and buy one!!

Lol, Canon just realized that more mexapixel isn't needed. But image quality is always welcome!
But you only saw the MP count and where disapointed... tsts.
Best thing ever on the 5D MKIII is the AF! It's killer!

Hughesnet: I got in a preorder for 2 of the 64gb ATT 4G ones. Can't wait for the 16th. Ignore the Android fanboys posting here. This tablet has twice the resolution of theirs, supports usb connection to your camera or a SD card, has iPhoto, has a great built in cam. There is nothing photography related their android tablets can do better.

Well since you mentioned it, can the Ipad control a Dslr like a Canon EOS?
Well the Android Tablets can...
and the USB compatibility is old (old in Android) new in Ipad.
A few years back i had a Archos 101 Internet Tablet with those features.
It also suported my 1TB NTFS formatted HDD. :-)
Yeah, but the screen is WAY better on the Ipad, I have to admit! :-)
