I purchased this camera specifically for conversion to IR. My initial thought was that I should test it right away before my opportunity to return it ran out. I must say I was a bit shocked at just how good a camera it is considering it sits at the bottom of Canon's DSLR totem pole. It's a truly brilliant camera and well worth every penny of its price. My first shots were with the camera using the 18-55 lens and they turned out so well I thought I'd try it with a 24-105 L lens. The camera did not disappoint.. it's a gem. I have one slight complaint and that is the finger grip.. it's a bit too small to be comfortable. A pleasure to see the work this camera can produce though.

The website offered with the reasonable price product and a lot cheaper than regular retail store. The website providing with tracking number made me more relieve from getting the product. I would use this online store more often.
The product is suit to beginner photographer. It's easy to use, not to much complex, but wish there were more function for who wants to advance their skills. But overall, I satisfy with the product.

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera and 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit:

    It's a backup to my other rebels when doing shoots. At its low price, it's also the vacation camera (sand, water, rocks, ice cream dangers) if it's going to bite the dust. Does almost everything my more expensive rebels do. Does NOT have video auto focus, so if you can't handle continuous manual focus on video, upgrade and get the 18-135 lens while you are at it, since other lenses click back and forth. The 18-55 3.5/5,6 lens opening will be merciful in giving some decent depth of field. For pics, does an excellent job.

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera and 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit:

      I dont use it for anything too intensive, just pictures of the kids and the occasional landscape shot. Works very well and obviously much better than the point and shoot I had previously. The continuous shooting feature is awesome. I took lots of pictures of the kids running down the sand dunes in Michigan and I got the perfect action shots I was hoping for. Great camera!

            This is my first DSLR camera. I was interested in the Rebel because years ago I had the 35mm Rebel G. This T3 is amazing! I had no clue what it could do. It is easy to use and takes unbelievable photos. I started with the easy automatic settings but after a week I decided to play with the manual settings. It is easy to learn and I was taking breath taking shots in a matter of days. This is one Great camera for the beginner digital user at a fantastic price.

            I've mostly used a Canon Powershot SD1000 camera until I bought this. I love the shape, weight and clarity of the pictures. I'm really glad I bought it and hope I can learn to use all of its features.

              Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera and 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit:

              This camera was purchased for my wife to take to Botswana. Above all, camera and lenses needed to be light.

              This is an amazing camera for the price. The picture quality is excellent through ISO 800 and acceptable, albeit with some noise, all the way to ISO 6400. Battery life is good even with IS lenses.

              My only disappointment is that the automatic ISO and program mode (where f-stop and shutter are both adjusted) are both useless. ISO stays at 100 far too long and aperture stays too wide.

                    I bought this camera because it was the cheapest D-SLR available from Canon, at a good price. I wanted to experiment with time lapse photography and needed something that could take a beating. I take an average of 1440-2160 photos per session. With a cheap intervalometer, this camera works great. I am currently using the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX II lens with this camera and I am very satisfied with the results. I really like the TFT LCD monitor because it is 'old school' and not like the flip-out or tilt/swivel units on the more expensive Ti cameras. I am happy to have a SLR, again.

                          I recently purchased this camera as my first SLR. I am loving the ability to go between the automatic settings and the more manual settings. I recently took this to a wedding and had a great time take photos with it. The pictures are nice quality.

                          Although I have been a photographer for many years, the T3 has been my first digital SLR camera. Canon delivers a very easy to use camera and although it doesn't have the highest MP or the highest shutter speeds, it most certainly gets the job done. At the low price of $[$], there's really no better camera on the market for beginners.

                          Bought this camera as my first DSLR and it's been a gem. Very easy to learn on and grasp the basic concepts of digital photography. Highly recommended.
