Top notch DSLR for an enthusiast
29 September 2014
Summary: It's a great, lightweight DSLR. I researched before I bid, and this model came out on top. It is a replacement for my Rebel XS/D1000, which served me well. I owned three lenses, which of course, fit perfectly, and the camera operates just like the XS -- but with a notch better results. Canon tech support has also been attentive, detailed and helpful. No hint of sales, just a desire to help.
Summary: I love this camera. It's easy to use and produces incredible shots. As a first time SLR user, I was blown away with how easy it was to produce shots that far surpassed my expectations. I'm going to make sure to have this camera with me for a loonng time.
Summary: This camera is a great value. Excellent picture quality and a much better display screen than the previous models. The stock lenses, as with most canons, are not great. I love the 50mm F1.8 lens, and it's cheap. Put a nice lens on this camera and be amazed! Even with the stock ones, the quality is very nice. Download Magic Lantern and the options are limitless.
Summary: I bought this camera two and a half years ago. I have been using it as my main camera. I have no problem with it at all. The material is good. The quality of photos taken from this camera is very good. This camera is the predecessor of T3i (ancestor of T4i, T5i). Because it was released long time ago, so there is no flip display (articulated screen) nor touch screen yet in this model. The image processor is DIGIC 4. But the rest is almost the same with its successors.
Summary: If you're looking for a truly affordable camera body with great quality photos (including in low light situations depending on your lens), then this is it. I'd previously owned a Canon Rebel XS, and was pretty happy with it. However, I wanted to get better low-light performance on it (6,400 ISO vs. 1,600), as well as be able to shoot video. I didn't see the point in going for an option that shoots 720p, since after all it's 2014.

Summary: WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS KIT?!!!!! This is a fantastic package provided by 6AVE. Not only did I receive my kit just less than 24 hours after I ordered it. Everything was there and everything works perfectly. I even find the tripod that they provided to function great. while it is in the skinny side with the legs and I most likely will buy a better quality tripod in the near future, I had NO PROBLEMS using it.
Summary: This is my fisrt DSLR, it has been almost 2 years since I bought it, and it stills works like a charm. I've taken it to the various Jungles and beaches in Costa Rica, I have drop it a couple of times, I took it to a 3 month trip to England, I take pictures very often in a dusty woodworking shop, and still works like new. Image quality is really good, I really can't complain. Excellent product from an excellent maker. Go for it!
Summary: Great buy, i have this camera still and while photos aren't the greatest you can get out of a dslr, it is the best for the price. anything after 15MP, photos really depend more on who's taking the picture. so if your photos dont look that great maybe take some online lessons because i have had 2 numerous compliments on photos and almost won a couple awards. Video?? The BEST. you really can't beat it for the price.
Summary: I love this camera. It is easy to use and I get awesome photos from it. I wouldn't trust anything but Cannon for all my family photos. I find this camera works great in low light settings (like theatre or sporting events) as well as out in the great outdoors. Very sharp nice looking photos. Highly recommend.
