Summary: The camera kit is great! I am learning so much from the components and the books and software included. The seller was excellent - delivery was early which was a bonus - and they quickly responded to 2 questions I had. I'd use The Imaging World again.
Excerpt: This is an ENTRY level DSLR. Yet, it performs very well. The 12.1 MP sensor provides very nice, sharp pictures, with a low amount of noise (grainy). All 105+ Canon EF and EF-S lenses will fit it. When I put my 24-105mm red ring ( "L") lens on it, the results are difficult to distinguish from my higher end cameras. I will recommend this Canon T3 to anyone just starting in photography, or if you are making the switch from a P&S camera.
Pros: all my lenses fit it, Good battery life, Light to carry, Super-sharp images, Very inexpensive
Summary: So I am fairly certain that Canon has put a bottom price for what their products can be sold at. I think this is a little under that price but I don't care! I wasn't so sure that this was the real deal until I received it. The camera came packaged in the manufacturer's box 100% authentic! Camera works great, menu is in English, comes with all original documentation in English!
Summary: We first bought the Canon T3 which was a great camera for general semi-professional photography. Web bought the T3i however when we started doing more videos for a dog rescue that we volunteer for and needed a camera where the monitor could be pivoted so that we could see what was going on from above while using our Cage. We love this camera. It is a AAAA+ unit!
Summary: First impression: WOW! This is everything I could have dreamed for! Literally! The T3i functions like a dream and is easy to use. It also tasks beautiful pictures and has allowed me to expand my photography horizons from point-and-shoot and iPhone/iPad to something more flexible. Everything functions as expected and I have not encountered any hardware or software problems, even though I use it pretty much every day.
