Summary: I bought this as a gift and it works as expected, other than when we take pictures it would seem that the camera has a penchant for taking people's souls as well. Curious however, One can't help but wonder if other people have had this issue? To be expected I suppose. The camera takes wonderful pictures and the extras are great.
Summary: I love the canon t3i it is a great camera to have. I love every thing about besides the tripod because the tripod is very cheap and broke when i got it but that was int a big deal because i have already had another one. If i where you i would buy it.
Summary: Having been a professional journalist and a horse show photographer in the past, I wanted a camera that was user-friendly yet capable of providing me with truly excellent, high-resolution images. I researched digital cameras for six months before purchasing the EOS Rebel T3i, and the camera has definitely lived up to its reputation. I took it on a two-week vacation across the U.S., photographing both scenery and wildlife, including scenes from a moving vehicle.
Summary: Great starter DSL camera. Did a lot of research and found this gave the most bang for the buck. The later models extras did not give much more for the price and the older models did not do what I wanted them to do like video. (although I don't use the video that much) Spend less $ on this and then get a couple nice lenses and look like a pro!
