  • Excerpt: Please watch the video full-screen and at the highest resolution. (I had a hot chocolate just before the video, so my apologies. That's HD for you.)I've been taking a few shots with my new Canon EOS 600d / Digital Rebel T3i over the last few days, you know, the usual thing, nipping out at lunch from work to snap a few frames.

Canon EOS Rebel T3i Review

26 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Only a year after the release of the Canon EOS Rebel T2i, here is its replacement -- the T3i. The T3i keeps the 18 megapixels and ISO range of its predecessor, so there is no difference in image quality. What the T3i does have is a variety of interesting new features designed to tempt new users into buying a DSLR.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality at all ISO settings, Articulated LCD screen, Ability to remotely control flashguns
  • Cons: White balance, Slow AF in Live View Mode

  • Conclusion: The various changes bestowed upon the EOS 600D make a little more sense here than they do in the enthusiast EOS 60D, and what results is a model that provides plenty of growing space for beginners but enough to keep the more adventurous happy.

Canon EOS Rebel T3i

16 November 2011
  • Summary: It shares a laundry list of extras with the much more expensive Canon EOS 7D, including the same metering system, ISO and exposure compensation range, which help account for the T3i's stellar image quality. It gets the same advanced Movie Mode features, too, and an external microphone jack.
  • Pros: Superb image quality, even in low light, Compact and lightweight, Swiveling LCD screen, Exposure bracketing
  • Cons: Slow autofocus in live view, No continuous autofocus when shooting video

  • Conclusion: It’s a similar tale of confusion when purchasing a DSLR camera. You’ll first have to pick sides for the Canon vs Nikon war. Then there’s all those pesky model numbers to pick from. Canon’s EOS lineup is roughly divided into 4 categories. You’ve got the pocket-friendly 4 digit, 1000D series, followed by entry level DSLRs which are denoted by 3 digits (EOS 500D, EOS 550D, 600D), then by the mid-range semi-pro DSLRs(50D, 60D) and topped off by the professional single-digit...

Canon T3i

18 September 2011
  • Conclusion: As it stands, the Canon T3i is the flagship Rebel, with the T3 and T2i beneath it in features. Its still image quality is among the best in its price range, and its video modes are quite complete, offering excellent quality, provided you can handle shooting video more carefully than you would with a digicam or camcorder. Taken as a whole, the Canon T3i is an excellent digital SLR, with just about every feature we've been longing for in a sub-$1,000 camera.
  • Pros: Excellent and proven 18-megapixel sensor, Lots of detail, especially in RAW files, Very good high ISO performance, Very accurate colors, Full HD video capability at three frame rates with auto or manual exposure control, Video Digital Zoom, ranging from 3-10x, Good quality optics with image stabilization (if purchased with in a lens kit), High-resolution, swiveling LCD, HTP tames highlights, ALO brightens shadows, Good quality grip, Captures 14-bit RAW images, Periphe...
  • Cons: Dynamic range is not up to par with the best APS-C sensors, No microfocus adjustment, Very warm auto white balance indoors, Sluggish startup and mode switching, Only center AF point is cross-type, while the Canon 60D has all nine cross-type (for those considering a 60D), 3.7fps is slow for sports shooting, Shallow buffers with slow buffer clearing, AF in Live View is slow, Below-average battery life, Camera does not correct for chromatic aberration or geometric distor...

Canon EOS Rebel T3i

PC Magazine
14 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a fast, high-performing digital SLR, but it isn't as good as its predecessor, the Editors' Choice-winning T2i, which, thankfully, is still available.
  • Pros: Quick. Good picture quality.
  • Cons: Extremely slow Live View mode. Not as fast as the T2i, images aren't as sharp.

Lab Test: Canon EOS Rebel T3i

Pop Photo
9 September 2011
  • Summary: While the T3i doesn’t come across as a major upgrade to the T2i, it’s a thoughtful addition to the line and keeps Canon competitive with the likes of the long-in-the-tooth Nikon D5000. Though due for an upgrade, that Nikon now has no major advantage over Canon at this level of camera body. The T3i beats it on resolving power, high-ISO noise performance, and AF speed. The D5000’s main edge? Its price has dropped enough to make it more comparable to the T2i.

Canon EOS Rebel T3i Review

8 August 2011
  • Summary: On its own, it’s a typical pop-up flash, mostly useful for fill or when you’ve got nothing else. In the end, the EOS Rebel T3i is a terrific value at about $850 with the 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 image-stabilized kit lens. And Canon’s rich array of lens choices gives you tremendous options as you explore your own photographic inclinations.
  • Pros: Great feel in the hand; impressive video capabilities; good manual.
  • Cons: Obtuse user interface
