Just charge the included LP-E8 battery pack and pop in an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card and you're ready to start making photos! And should you want to expand your selection of lenses for the T3i, all Canon EF and EF-S lenses are compatible.


The Rebel line of DSLR cameras has long been known as a value in photography, focusing on the advanced amateur, student, and all those looking to go beyond what their point-and-shoot lets them do, to stretch and test the limits of their creativity; all while not breaking the bank.



With an 18MP CMOS (APS-C) sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor the T3i captures beautiful, high resolution JPEG, RAW, and RAW+JPEG images to your choice of SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The camera also records full HD .MOV video at 1920 x 1080/30p/24p, among other frame rate options. The wide range of compatible lenses and the camera's dedicated live view give you the flexibility you need to create wonderful HD DSLR movies.



No matter what you're recording - still images or vibrant video - the T3i provides you with a vari-angle 3.0" Clear View LCD monitor that flips-out and is adjustable at a variety of angles for shooting and review of your subject. The camera also features an eye-level viewfinder for more precise composition of shots.



Canon's 63 zone dual-layer sensor works with the 9 point AF system for excellent exposures by minimizing in-camera meter reading error. The system produces more accurate images even in low-lit settings. The T3i also features an in-camera flash or the option to connect a flash, and is Speedlite compatible. Another feature worth mentioning when it comes to exposure include the camera's 100-6400 ISO rating which is expandable up to 12,800. Using this setting along with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer produces incredible low light shots.



In addition, the T3i features a number of user-friendly modes that allow the user to simplify their experience. Intelligent Auto mode, for example, takes the guesswork out of shooting by automatically setting 5 of the camera's technologies to create the optimum image. Other helpful shooting controls like Basic+ provides the user with 2 options for making creative photos like a pro. The ambience selection adjusts exposure and white balance to give your images a unique look and feel. When shooting by lighting or scene type, Basic+ creates artistic filters for the scene or gives it the feel that the viewer is focused on the center of the image. Of course, other shooting controls like the feature guide and quick control screen help to streamline your experience with the camera as well.

 

The Rebel on the Move
Photographers looking for an easy-to-use camera that will help them create their next masterpiece need look no further than the Canon EOS Rebel T3i. The next in a long line of phenomenal compact DSLRs, the EOS Rebel T3i continues the Rebel tradition of easy operation, compact design and no-compromise performance. Featuring Canon's newest DIGIC 4 Image Processor and an 18.0 megapixel CMOS image sensor - plus cutting-edge technologies like HD video recording, Live View shooting, Wireless flash photography and even a Vari-angle 3.0" LCD monitor - the EOS Rebel T3i offers the best of EOS photography in a compact package
High Resolution Still Capture
The EOS Rebel T3i has an 18.0MP CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies as used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel's light-gathering efficiency. Its APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format)
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up the entire EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's camera operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's CMOS Image Sensor to achieve phenomenal levels of performance in nearly any situation
Amazing Results, No Matter the Light
The EOS Rebel T3i features an expanded ISO range that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. With an ISO rating up to 6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), along with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor's improved noise-reduction technology, creative possibilities abound. Combine the EOS Rebel T3i with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer and the shooting possibilities for both movies and stills expand even further
HD Dreams Come True
The EOS Rebel T3i does not just shoot video clips, it offers the enhanced ease-of-use, image quality, smooth frame rates and adaptive exposure compensation necessary in a professional video-making tool by boasting the most advanced EOS video capturing features to date: When Full HD (1920 x 1080) is set, you can use Movie Digital Zoom to magnify the center of the image by 3-10x while at the same time maintaining gorgeous Canon Full HD image quality. With the Video Snapshot feature, the EOS Rebel T3i DSLR will capture short video clips (of 2, 4 or 8 seconds) then combine them automatically into one video file as a snapshot or highlights "album." With no editing needed after shooting, the compiled video is perfect for sharing online or displaying directly on an HDTV via the camera's HDMI port

In addition to a number of different recording size and frame rate modes, the EOS Rebel T3i enables easy manual control of exposure, focus and Live View features and even allows for in-camera editing. The large CMOS sensor and compatibility with over 60 lenses provide a wealth of depth-of-field options. And it's all as easy as the press of a button - the EOS Rebel T3i has a dedicated Live View/Movie Recording start/stop button that gets the shooting started fast

Three Recording Sizes
Full HD Video is captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) or 25p frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Videos are saved as .MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50p/60p (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (30p (29.97) and 25p fps)
Low Angles or High, a Big Vari-Angle LCD Captures All the Details
The EOS Rebel T3i features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0" Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles. By simply rotating the monitor, you can hold the camera directly overhead for above-the-crowd shots at concerts, or hold the camera at a low angle for kids and pets. By rotating the LCD monitor fully, the EOS Rebel T3i becomes the ideal camera for self-portraits. The EOS Rebel T3i freely enables easy angle adjustments even if the camera is mounted on a tripod or has a battery grip attach
Automatic Scene Analysis for Standout Color
The EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's new Scene Intelligent Auto mode unites five Canon digital camera technologies - the new Picture Style Auto, plus Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure -into a powerful new feature for photographers. Using the advanced EOS Scene Detection System, the camera automatically analyzes the image, taking into account faces, colors, brightness, movement and contrast. Scene Intelligent Auto then chooses the enhancing features to deliver maximum impact. Blues and greens are more vivid, "hot" colors are more fiery, and skin tones are smooth and truer to life
Make Your Images As You See Them
Basic+ is a new creative imaging feature that makes it easy to create the image effects you want. It can be set with the Quick Control screen in Basic Zone modes. Basic+ provides two options:

Shoot by ambience selection

Based on the Picture Style and its parameters (sharpness, contrast, saturation, and color tone), the exposure compensation and white balance correction are adjusted to attain the selected ambience. You can also can also select the strength of the ambience effect

Shoot by lighting or scene type

Although the actual parameter set is the white balance, the settings are expressed in more understandable terms

The Multi-Aspect Function of the EOS Rebel T3i lets you express an image in one of three ways by matching the aspect ratio to each scene. In addition to the camera's standard 3:2 ration, the Multi-Aspect Function includes a 1:1 ratio that creates the sensation that the viewer's gaze is focusing upon the center of the image. At the 4:3 ratio, you get nearly the same aspect ratio as a regular TV or a 4:3 computer display. The 16:9 aspect ratio provides a wide look, much the same as HDTV

The EOS Rebel T3i incorporates five in-camera Creative Filters so you can artistically manipulate scenes without the aid of an outside computer. Soft Focus lends a dreamy, romantic aspect, while Grainy Black and White gives a dramatically gritty, hard-bitten look. Miniature Effect creates an illusion in which expansive subjects are seemingly reduced to doll-house-like proportions, and Toy Camera Effect recreates the colors and softness rendered by cameras with a plastic lens, an effect often sought after by art photographers. Fish Eye Effect mimics the "Fisheye" lenses that are favorites of professional photographers for their quirky, convex perspective

Intelligent Scene Analysis for Superb Exposure
The EOS Rebel T3i features a sophisticated, 63 zone Dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 9-point AF system. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points, this system delivers an advanced level of accuracy for better results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS Rebel T3i gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as in a theater or concert hall. This makes the EOS Rebel T3i ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot. Since the EOS Rebel T3i provides high-speed X-sync ("X-sync" means the fastest shutter speed that can synchronize with a flash burst at the moment the shutter is fully released) up to 1/200 sec., the range of photographic expression is dramatically increased, allowing the EOS Rebel T3i to be used with confidence in bright scenes or dim
Never Miss a Moment
The EOS Rebel T3i can shoot up to 3.7 frames per second (fps) for up to approximately 6 consecutive RAW files or approximately 34 full-resolution JPEGs. Shooting at speeds of up to 1/4000 sec., the EOS Rebel T3i can capture even rapidly-unfolding scenes with ease
Photography Made Truly Easy
The Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR demystifies great photography by including an in-camera feature guide. Appearing on the camera's LCD, the feature guide displays a simple description or advice for the respective function. It is displayed in each shooting mode, during mode dial operations, and for quick control screen functions (during normal shooting, Live View shooting, movie shooting, and playback). The feature guide appears automatically during mode dial operations and when a function is selected on the quick control screen
Flexible Storage with Memory Cards
The EOS Rebel T3i uses popular SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's compact and lightweight body design. Using the included USB cable, you can also transfer and record to other forms of media, like external hard drives.

Additionally, the EOS Rebel T3i is compatible with Eye-Fi SD cards, which are outfitted with a Wi-Fi transmitter (IEEE 802.11b/g) and an internal antenna for wireless, high-speed transfer of images. With an Eye-Fi card installed, the EOS Rebel EOS Rebel T3i can display the Eye-Fi's connection status and error notes with ease, for fully functional wireless uploading of images directly from the camera
EF Lenses
The EOS Rebel T3i is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, including compact and lightweight EF-S lenses, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver outstanding performance and deliver beautiful results. Special technologies like the Canon Image Stabilizer technology in select lenses helps to minimize the effect of camera shake, effectively adding up to four stops of light. With a dizzying array of lenses perfect for travel, sports, still life and everything in between, photographers can truly maximize the quality and performance of their EOS Rebel T3i with superlative Canon optics
Flash Photography
With a flash sync speed of 1/200 of a second, the EOS Rebel T3i also features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness. With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient light is also used for flash metering - giving even finer metering command of the image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu setting to change to "Average" flash metering - where the entire 35-zone area is measured evenly for flash exposure. Additionally, the EOS Rebel T3i has a Speedlite transmitter built-in for convenient, full-featured wireless control of EX-series Speedlite flashes set as slave units

The Canon Speedlite 430EX II is the ideal step-up accessory for powerful flash shooting with the EOS Rebel T3i. It has excellent flash power (maximum guide number of 141 ft./43m at ISO 100), and is the perfect way to get great flash pictures when you can't get right up to the subject. The 430EX II is also great for bounce flash, with its tilting and swiveling flash head. It automatically zooms the flash head to cover lenses ranging from 16mm up to 105mm or longer with the EOS Rebel T3i. Of course, it works with the camera to provide full E-TTL II automatic flash exposure. And the 430EX II has a powerful AF-assist beam, which allows the camera to autofocus even in total darkness on subjects as far as 32 ft. from the camera

    Excellent first DSLR Camera

    First of all, my wife and I are having a baby in the next couple of months. We always told each other we'd get a "nice" DSLR before our first child, and this camera was our choice.

    We tossed around the idea of getting the T3, the T4i and this T3i. In the end, we landed on this camera because of the swivel screen, and lower price than the T4i. As our first camera, we decided that this would be more than enough for the next 5-10 years until we decide to upgrade to a newer body. If we ever do... Lenses are interchangeable, so we decided to invest more into them over time. In the end, we just felt the T3i fit our needs in terms of the features it offers and the price point it's at.

    The camera starts up right away, and within a second you're ready to take pictures. With the dial on the top, you're able to quickly make changes to the aperture setting, and with a couple of button presses you can use the same dial to change other features such shutter speed, ISO, etc. Changes are quick and easy, which is nice for a first time DSLR user. Another reason we chose the T3i over the T3, is because of the image sensor self cleaner. The T3 lacks this function.

    We have paired our camera with the lens kit (18-55), telephoto lens (55-250) and a prime lens (50mm 1.8). We found that for the price of this camera and the lenses I mentioned, we have quite the nice little starter kit. I highly recommend a prime lens, such as the 50mm f 1.8 or even the 40mm pancake lens. This will just allow for great low light shots, and they're smaller lighter and easier to cart around. An excellent choice, we believe.

    Since we bought our camera, we've taken roughly 500 photos. I've done a lot of reading and homework on photography since I made the purchase, and I can already tell a difference with my photos. I'd truly recommend you do some reading up on the basics of using the different settings (aperture, ISO, shutter speed, depth of field how to, etc.) before you start shooting. Once you do, practive with your camera. It has made all the difference for me.

    We've also paired this camera with a yongnuo yn-568 flash, which works great with this camera. The two can communicate using E-TTL II where the flash on top of the camera body sets off the flash (if it's not mounted in the shoe on top of the camera). It also works great mounted on top, as it quickly recognizes the settings it needs to be at and adjusts based on my settings and zoom. I mention this, just to mention the functionality of the camera in terms of working with other accessories (Canon branded or not). An off camera flash was an EXCELLENT upgrade for us, as it is great in low light and/or used as fill lighting.

    The video function is great, as it shoots in 1080p and does 60 fps when in 720p. This is great for slow motion video. We won't use video too much, but the small amount of video we've taken so far with our 50mm lens has been so wonderful, as it's fun to play with the focus and bokeh.

    The final feature I'll touch on is the swivel head. It is so nice to use when you don't want to bend down low to take a shot, when you have to hold the camera up high over a crowd or something, or just to give you more functionality in your shots (although we don't use the live function much as I prefer to look through the view finder). It has really come in handy when taking candid shots of others, as I don't have the camera up to my face the whole time and I'm able to simply carry on conversation and take photos at the same time.

    The only downside I'll mention that I've found, is the number of shots you get on the camera compared to the T3, just for example. I got about 400 shots on my first charge, where as the T3 gets around 700-800 based on what others have said. Just something to consider. An extra battery may be a must for some.

    Overall, my wife and I are more than happy with this camera and the 18-55mm lens that came with it. Whether you're upgrading from another body to this one, or buying your first DSLR, I think you'll be quite satisfied with the ease of use and overall performance of this camera. Give it a try!

    Missing some features, but still good

    I own a Canon 7D and use it 100% for video purposes. I got the T3i as my backup camera, for cutaways and things like that...
    It's perfect. You honestly can't even tell which is the 7D and which is the T3i when it's all edited together.
    I picked the T3i over the T2i simply for the rotating screen.

    As far as my gripe for it goes...the most frustrating thing so far has been matching white balance.
    There is NO Kelvin Meter on the T3i. So, on a lot of shoots when everyones matching white balance and tell you to put it on a specific white balance, you can't really do that.
    So I'm always left having to do custom white balance on something nearby to match it up with my 7D.
    And that's even off sometimes...so, that's sort of a nag.

    Everything else is fine though.
    The controls are easy. It's lightweight...it's a mini 7D. Less ISO Options, but overall No complaints other than the Kelvin meter.

        I use this mostly for pictures of my children, them playing sports, holiday parties, well...let's be honest...I love using this camera, so I use the T3i on any possible occasion.

        I love that it takes Fantastic photos, is fairly easy to use (I actually bought the Canon T3i for Dummies...insert joke here) and carry around.

        I really haven't found a downside other than I wish I had more opportunities to use it.

              I'm a beginner in the DSLR space. This is a great light equipment and the entire kit (2 lenses, shoulder bag and memory card) is a great way for me to get started. Didn't play around with it for too long, but it's fairly easy to use. Especially if you've used any other Canon products (even a point-and-shoot), functions are fairly self explanatory. Love the adjustable LCD screen on the T3i. Happy shooting :)

                I'd been using the Canon T2i at work and finally decided to take the plunge and get my own camera. It's easy to use and takes beautiful photos, even with the stock lens (I'm saying this as an amateur). I love being able to switch between manual and automatic -- overall I think it will be a great camera to learn how to shoot manually.

                      This is my 2nd T3i; I selected it as my first "real" camera & found it very easy to use. I use them in my photography business, as well as for my personal use. The camera's buttons are big enough to easily see/read. The live display screen allows immediate review of photos. I have taken photos in pitch dark, using a single external flash & the photos look great. I love this camera & recommend it!

                        I am a hobbyist nature photographer. I was using an eight year old PENTAX that I borrowed from a cousin until I was able to afford this camera. Since purchasing this camera I've had the pleasure of taking it on several walks as well as family events. It is feature packed, easy to use, gives me control when I want it, and results in beautiful, crisp photographs.

                              I use the camera everyday. I absolutely love it. Everything is great about the camera. I cant think of anything bad with the camera.

                              I just bought this as my first DSLR camera and it's perfect! Plus the accessory kit was a nice touch because I didn't have to go through the process of buying all of the items separately. The camera was easy to put together and easy to use on auto. I still haven't mastered manual yet.

                                It's been about 20 years since I used an SLR. Two years ago this summer I bought a small point and shoot - my first digital camera. While I still carry it in my purse I've so often been frustrated with what it can't do. A friend has Canon cameras including a 7D and recommended the T3i as a good one to get back into photography again. I like that it gives me good pictures on automatic settings but also gives me the option of choosing my own settings. I've had it less than a month but am enjoying using it. It feels so good to have a "real" camera in my hands again.

                                      The camera is great for the price. I finally can take nice photos, despite there is low light in the scene (using a lenses with f/1.8).
                                      The interface is really easy, and the focusing system is great and fast.
                                      I didn't have recorded any movie yet, but I think it will be awesome too.

                                        I absolutely love this camera! Note that it is my first DSLR camera, so it is a major upgrade from the point and shoots and cell phone cameras that I used previously. I use it in both manual and auto focus mode to capture portraits of my baby boy and family and I am learning more and more every day. I've also snapped some awesome pictures of the moon and stationary objects with the 55-250mm telephoto lens and 50mm f/1.8 lens respectively.

                                          this is great project for the student to learn in their associate photography classes. I plan
                                          to open a old time / magazine tourist shop in my town.
