Summary: The reason why I ordered this bundle is because I wanted to replace my T3i which was damaged. They had a special on and when I did the math, I was getting extras that I planned to buy anyway like the 75-300 lens and the extra batteries for a lot less than it would cost if I bought them all separately. The T4i is a really good camera. I already have a lot of equipment which fits it already. The video quality is amazing.
Main Product is great, accessories are cheap/ will break.

Summary: This would've gotten 5 stars but......the camera bag will not protect your new expensive camera and lenses at all, very loose and could fall out. Tripod already broke, luckily the camera wasn't on it. Also, if you think you are gettinfg a deal on this during Black Friday, you're not; which I thought I was. The price dropped for this package about $200 in late January up to now.
Summary: I need training on how to maximize this spectacular camera. The manuels don't do it for me. I need hands-on assistance. I emailed Canon and no response. Youtube was kindda helpful, however did not hit the mark. The tripods were substandard-lightweight. I don't feel confortable using. The omitted the large tripod and shiped it right away (+). However, when I got it I was dissapointed. The camera and assessaries were all fine.
Summary: incomplete list of accessories: were not dispatched the following products 1- Ac/DC Rapid Battery Charger 1- UV, Florescent, Polarizer Filter Kit 1- Lens/LCD Cleaning Kit T4i camera is very good option for entry level in the world of DSLR ! CONS: AF in video record is poor and noisy, don't waste your time use manual focus!!
Summary: I ordered this for my son. Unbeknownst to me he already received the same camera two days earlier. I tried for about 3 weeks to return this expensive camera that I no longer needed. I received 2 emails regarding this. One asking ifmI had original packaging. The 2nd was to say the return had been closed! So now I am stuck with this $900.00 camera. It is a good camera still in original packaging. NO I am not happy.
Excerpt: Well my sister in law is a psuedo professional photographer and she has one of these bad boys, so I thought if I purchased it I could be a great photographer too! WRONG! :) It took me awhile to get used to all the bells and whistels this camera comes with--sometimes I think TOO many bells and whisteles can be a bad thing for novice picture takers like me! read the manual..I repeat --read the manual! I did eventually get used to the lens and handling of the camera.
Summary: I'm pleased with the image quality, however there is one huge interface issue which has me tearing my hair out every time I use this camera.. all settings return to factory settings when the camera shuts off. I want the camera to always bracket the exposure, -1, then normal, then +1. I set this up using the bracketing feature but every time the camera is shut off it 'forgets' this setting and all others. I have to set up the bracketing every singe time. So frustrating.
Ergonomically ill suited, and eats up 4 gb for 24 minutes, and crashes my system so why bother

Summary: Compared to the sleek smooth design of Sony Alpha A350 and compact size of Samsung NX100, this was too bulky and boxy and ergonomically ill suited for my hands. I think maybe people with big thumbs and hands would like this, but the plastic is rough and not smooth, and it eats up 4 gb for 24 minutes whether 1080 or 720p, so it's a pill to edit, and when posted, pauses and crashes during replay as compared to the other HD Dslr cameras.
Summary: I own a lot of point & shoot digital cameras and haven't had a nice SLR in a long time, so I was excited to upgrade to the DSLR and purchased the kit with the 18-55 mm lens as well as the 55-250 mm lens. From all the way across the UCF Arena I was able to take nicely framed shots of my son's high school graduation without the use of flash.
