Decent entry-level DSLR

I purchased the T3i with the 18-55 kit and I've had it for about two months now, and I can say I'm satisfied, but not satisfied enough (warranted, for the price, it's hard to justify complaints - you can't expect pro-grade performance on a $[...] DSLR). For reference, I would like to note that I swapped out the kit lens about three days into shooting around with the camera. The lens is decent, but I found the variable aperture very constraining on the 40-55mm end and it's not sharp at all until you hit f/8 or above. I picked up a 50mm f/1.8 II and boy was that a lot of fun. I highly recommend the 50mm as a first choice lens. The T3i is perfect for people starting out in photography - the full manual mode gives you a wide array of options and selections, and pretty much this is all you will need for the typical enthusiast. If you are planning on shooting landscapes, macro, or portraits, this will do the trick. Where this camera falls short, however, is for anything above a beginner's level for photography. If you are planning on continuing in photography and committing to the art, I recommend you start with a 60D or 70D - or if you've got money to blow, go one step above to a 7D (crop-sensor) or 6D (full-frame). The autofocus - works well, but it's more miss than hit. With still subjects, this is no problem because you can always take another shot. However, for any medium to fast movement (say, for an event where you want to get candid shots, children, animals, etc), you will get about 2-3/10 shots in focus on the subject you want. Even on continuous AF, I found myself constantly reframing my shot and being frustrated with a really nice shot but poor focusing. Sometimes, even when the subjects are still, if you have other distractions in your frame, the AF system is not very accurate at picking out the obvious, especially faces. Also, there are only 9 AF points, which is sometimes very limiting when you happen to want your subject in between AF points. How fast the camera autofocuses depends on the body as well as the lens, so it will vary, but I found it to be fast enough for most cases. ISO - my biggest gripe aside from the AF is poor low-light ISO performance. Sometimes, when you don't want to use your flashgun (the built-in flash is almost useless), the only choice you have aside from a slower shutter speed and wider aperture is high ISO. I found that in most situations, I could not use an ISO any faster than 800. In well-lit situations, I could creep up to 1600 or maybe 3200. The noise in the photos is almost unbearable, and ISO 800 in modern day photography is not impressive at all. Ergonomics - lastly, and the last important, is the overall feel of the camera. This may not matter to many people (especially if you have small hands), but I found the grip to be extremely uncomfortable. I cannot get a comfortable grip no matter how I try, and my fingers do not fall naturally where all of the buttons and dials are. When you are shooting for hours on end, it can really cramp up your hand. This is largely due to the smaller body that Canon opted for in their entry level Rebel cameras. After playing around with a 60D and 6D, I found those to fit more naturally in the hand. Overall, the T3i is alright. Sometimes it will frustrate you, but for the most part, it gets the job done. For the price, I was able to invest more in lenses (which is way more important than the body) and get a nice Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 so I'm not complaining. It's a bang for your buck and an amazing time to get into photography, with falling prices. As for a toss up between the T3i and the T5i (or the discontinued T4i), I wouldn't spend the extra hundreds of dollars on the same camera with slightly upgraded functions. Go for the T3i if you're debating in between the Rebel series and spend the money you saved on lenses. Again, if you're looking to seriously get into photography, future-proof yourself with a 70D (or even the 7D - the

Great camera!

This camera was my first "expensive" camera purchase and I'm very pleased with it. The camera takes great photos! No complaints.

Versatility and performance!

I have had this camera for about a year now and use it with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS kit lens, 75-300mm f4-5.6 zoom and the 50mm f1.8 II prime. Between macros, portraits, nature and even some artistic photos I have been happy with the outcome. I use this with the BG-E8 battery grip and Canon 430EX and YonNuo 568EX flashes with YongNuo 622C eTTL radio triggers. It may not be a professional rig but it can take any image I can dream up and they look on par with any image I have seen. I have also sideloaded the MagicLantern firmware that further extends the capabilities of the camera to include an intervalometer for time lapse photos and an extended HDR menu as well as in depth video features. Overall this is one amazing piece of gear for the price.

Canon Rebel T3i 18MP

John meant manual focus. He didnt realize he just repeated himself. BTW, this camera rocks. Cant complain. 50mm 1.8 mkII prime with this camera truely makes the creative side of you come out. And for the $120, the 50mm 1.8 prime is the best lens for the $, hands down. Make sure to pair it with this camera!!! Only thing is if you want it for mainly video usage. Make sure to do some proper SD card researching. No company truly admits the speed of the card. Class makes hardly any difference. I say this when a class quite a few Class 10 cards had the same performance as my Sony 8gig Class 4!!! card. I also point out that this isnt just the cheap no name companies (Duracell). I'm talking the top names too. Most times they advertise a speed, its READ speed, not write speed. Which is a important thing when recording HD video. Take the time, research, and you will not waste your money.

Amazing!

I love this camera, it is the best camera i have ever owned and i mainly bought it to make short films and such but it also has amazing photos it can make. The only downturn is that during video it is hard to auto focus and when it does you can hear the loud noise when watching the video. I recommend that for filming you use auto-focus as it is much more fun and interesting to use!
