Summary: From the perspective of a student shooting VIDEO only with a dslr there are a few deals out on the internet that can beat this deal right here. The extra zoom lens is the obvious reason for extra 15-30 bucks but it simply getting a free lens and who can say no to that. The camera itself is very sturdy and well made but feels very plastic like when you first touch it which could be a dealbreaker for some.
Summary: Good camera, good (brand name accessories) but cheap camera bag. Also, the screen protectors are NOT static cling, but use an adhesive. Plan on ordering a new camera bag, some new screen protectors, and some extra batteries and you've got a great deal on an entry level DSLR with a couple good starter lenses.
Summary: this is an awesome bundle. I did lots of research before buying and I'm very happy with the value of this bundle and the camera is amazing. My mom has the same camera and she was equally impressed by this bundle.
Summary: This package is such a great price for a great camera. This is my first DLSR and I couldn't be more happier with the Rebel T3I. it takes great pictures and the whole package is just great all together. I would definitely recommend getting this bundle.
Good camera WISH I can say the same for 70-300 mm lens

Summary: Bought it just before my trip to Florida. Very happy with the camera however not so happy with the 70-300 mm lens I received with it. Go for 55-250 mm lens instead it's better than the 70-300 mm lens for many reasons. For starters it has IS which makes a whole lot difference. Also what I always noticed was I had to keep switching lens every time I decided to take pictures of anything in close proximity to me.
