I picked up a used T3 on you know whos list for $200.00. It had 1007 shutter actuation's and looked and performed like new. I currently us a DMC g5 Lumix MFT 16mp and really like that one. I had recently sold a d5100 Nikon. I had read the T3 was a beginners SLR. I must disagree. Except for a few options most will never use this camera should do all that you ask. Body- Yes its plastic, but it is covered with a non slip rubber coating and it is very comfortable to hold. Control layout is ...

I purchased a canon t3/1100d body, it's small, sleek, light, affordable, powerful, shoots video Oh yah and its a CANON. My #1 reason for buying this camera kit was to capture HD video using my Canon L lenses.  I have been shooting with Canon's 1d and 1ds series bodies for years. I am happy with the results I get with my t3 body. I recently took it on a trip to shoot video and photos and I am happy I left my 1d bodies behind, as I was able to save on weight and space. I do plan to use the HD ...

Bought this cam in Nov/2011 before a big change in my life. I was to leave my country and move to China, and I wanted something to record the change. I had a Sony P12 already beat up, lots of years of intense use and a few accidents were already showing some wear down. Not much money available but a big will to enter (again) the DSLR world. My first was a Canon 400D that my ex-wife took... So, after intense search, I got to 1100D+18-55! What I would like to call: affordable quality. After 2 ...

I first started my photography with point and shoot cameras, Now i own this lovely 12 mega pixel Canon EOS 1100d. Im not a professional, but I've been doing photography with this camera for the past 2 years and i've got pretty good results from it. People often said that this camera is a basic & for amateurs, but i feel if you have the eye for photography & some tricks & technique you can click pictures almost as a pro. check my gallery for some good clicks from this camera

I feel like the professional reviewers here and at other review sites have missed something about this camera that seems obvious to me.  When I bought my Rebel T3 I didn't want or need a super whiz-bang camera, I already have several of those.  I needed a lightweight box that contains a decent APS-C sensor, which I can attach to some of the fine EOS lenses that I already own.  So as a second body, the Rebel T3 is absolutely ideal, and a real pleasure to carry around while hiking or taking ...

It is a very shame for dpreview to give it %69 rating just because of i think it's plastic look with no rubberrized grip. I also think dpreview does not take into account its own studio test shot under "studio shots comparision" section where many brands being compared each other under same studio test shot and i can deffinately say that 1100D is the BEST re picture quality (high contrast,sharpness,colour accuracy and ISO performance) compared to many other brands and models based on my ...

Amazing value. The kit lense was great for learning how to use all the settings, and when combined with more specific use lenses gives stunning results. Bracketing function is useful, as is setting the timer for a series of auto-shots. Also when using live-view to take a phone, you can digitally zoom in. This helps adjusting manual focus, to give pin-point accuracy for shalllow field depths. Video recording very useful, and powerful tool with a DSL, and this camera gives great results. Partic ...

I use video just for the fun. About photography, I use only Raw format, then and only if needed I could make a PNG, JPEG, or any formats. I don't use camera for sport or Formula (under zero) 1 pictures . What I like: - Light camera but full of gifts - Manual, Av, TV modes. ( but all canon DSLR offer that) - All the back buttons to one side ( the right one). Once right hand hold this camera lets your left hand free to control the lens or do anything else. - Accepting all Eos lenses ( all ...
