Canon Rebel T3i Overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR Camera W/EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens gives you all you need to start taking great pictures right out of the box. Charge the included battery pack, put in an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card and start shooting! The 18-135mm lens is equivalent to 29-216mm in 35mm format, so you get a wide range, from real wide angle to a true telephoto focal length and high-quality optics. When you're ready to add another lens, it's great to know that the T3i is compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses.

The T3i captures beautiful, high resolution JPEG, RAW, and RAW+JPEG images, using an 18MP CMOS (APS-C) sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor. It also records dazzling full HD video at 1920 x 1080 at 30/24/25fps. The wide range of compatible lenses, manual exposure control, and the camera's dedicated live view give you the flexibility you need to create spectacular HD movies.

The T3i has a vari-angle 3" Clear View LCD monitor that flips out and is adjustable at a variety of angles for shooting and reviewing your photos and videos, as well as 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 superb, accurate exposures, including low-light situations. The T3i also features an in-camera flash and the option to connect a flash--it's Speedlite-compatible. The 100-6400 ISO rating is expandable up to an amazing 12,800. Using this setting with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer can produce incredible low light shots.

The T3i also features a number of modes that allow you to simplify your shooting 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.

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

    Canon Rebel T3i Reviews

    EOS Rebel T3i DSLR Camera W/EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 320.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% satisfied. Great starter DSLR I am a wedding videographer and I bought this camera to add to my arsenal. The day is arrived my wife started snapping photos with it. Even her no-photography experience allowed her to capture some great shots of our kids. I don't do much photography, in fact, next to none. But one afternoon I took some photos of my kids on a playground, posted them to Facebook, and that DAY I had friends asking me when I would be available to do a photoshoot with their kids. I told them I am not a photographer, but thanks for the compliment! The video takes a little learning. It doesn't seem to be as straightforward as point, aim, press this button to start recording

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far a good camera and lens combo This is a good camera which takes sharp photos in most situations. The full HD movies look great. Movies have initial focus but once started you have to manually focus which adds noise to the movie unless you have an external mike. It has an easy to use auto mode, as well as a program mode, and many other modes most Canon users are familiar with. The autofocus can be a bit slow with some wandering back and forth. Sometimes the flash exposure is a bit overexposed. The 18-135 mm IS lense is very versatile, good but not great as one would expect for such a wide range. I have an old Tamron 24-75 which is sharper. I'd get it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all around DSLR and lens The Rebl T3i is a very good, well featured, well built DSLR. It works great as a still camera. Video isn't that great as it can't focus while filming. Max ISO of 12800 is handy in low light situations, however you have to modify a custom function to get it. The built in wireless flash control for Cannon Speedlites is a very handy feature. The 18-135 kit lens is a good all around lens. I take it when I don't want to carry a lot of gear around. It's not too slow (f3.6-5.6). Combined whit the wide ISO range of the body and image stabilization it works well in a wide variety of situations. Overall, a very good camera for all but the most demanding users.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro features for best price This is the DSLR you want to buy if you want almost all the features of the very expensive ones, for an affordable price. I work in marketing and take promotional photos with it and have been very happy. I have used this same camera for about a year personally, and just bought another one through my job. After using it for a year, the only con I have found is that the autofocus is very slow when you are using the LCD display to preview. It is very annoying. If you use the viewfinder and turn off the LCD, focusing is fast and accurate. So I only use the LCD to review photos, and have been completely happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera, great lens! I am a semi-pro photographer and was looking for a great camera/lens kit for a reasonable price... not ready for the higher priced canon cameras yet.. this is fabulous! i am super picky with image quality and after reading some reviews on this site I was skeptical of the lens quality, but I am pleasantly suprised. it is fast, produces sharp images, great range (regaring the zoom). I am going to be photographing mostly children, and this lens gives me the quality and versatility to handle any job. the built in flash is also pretty decent if you underexpose the shot by about 1 full stop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent entry level digital SLR camera After much home work i decided to purchase Canon eos rebel t3i with 18-135mm lens. I am still learning and understanding the tonnes of features available. I basically use this camera for portraits, landscape photos. The shutter speed, aparture and manual settings are awosome and very easy to operate. Within a week i have capture almost 1000 shots so far i haven't observed any issue and i am sure my decision to purchase is correct. Great about the product: - menu design - articulate viewfinder - ergonomically designed buttons - light weight Not so great - Plastic body - no strap for front lens cap

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Entry Level/Midrange Camera Upon taking a comprehensive photography class that begins from the ground up, I was required to purchase a DSLR camera with little previous camera/lens purchasing experience. Admittedly, several close relatives with a sufficient background in the area directed me towards Canon. There is little variation among the range of competing cameras as far as variety of functions go. However, the bottom line is that, as an amateur photographer, the T3i is an easy to use, stable, quality camera that has every tool needed to get a very customized personal shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo Nice !!! I'm not a professional nor a novice but the Cannon Rebel EOS 3i with cannon EF-S 18-135mm Lens is really a great camera. It is easy to use with all of its' presets and if you like to get creative it will give you the moon and then some. It only has a small learning curve to take fantastic pictures and I'm looking forward to getting out and shooting-up the world. Taking great pictures is soo easy with the anti shake lens that even in dark or fast moving situations the results are always superb. This purchase has been worth every penney to me. I just love this camera and thanks cannon for a great product.
