Canon Rebel T3


$599.99 Released March, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A much needed replacement of the budget 3-year old XS (EOS 1000D). Affordable price point - a great starter SLR. Uses the same standard 9-point AF system and the 63-area iFCL metering system found on all Canon cameras up to and including the 7D.

The Cons:Is beat out by the cheaper albeit older T1i. Low resolution display (230K dot). Doesn't measure up well against the similarly priced competition (eg/ vs. D3100 - 12 vs 14mp, 9-point vs 14-point, 720p vs 1080p, 2fps / 5 frames vs 3 fps / 9 frames).

The Canon Rebel T3 (1100D) is an entry-level digital SLR released alongside the T3i (600D) in early 2011. As a replacement to the low-end Rebel XS (2009), the Rebel T3 DSLR features an upgraded 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens, 12.2MP CMOS sensor, and DIGIC 4 Imaging processor.

There is also an expanded exposure compensate range and improved auto modes. The most significant update is the incorporation of a 9-point AF system with an F/2.8 cross-type center point with a 63-zone Dual-layer metering system. This means that users with a lens over F/2.8 or faster will be able to more easily track their subjects in the continuous AF tracking mode. Also included is SD/SDHC/SDXC memory expansion and a TFT display that supports live viewing.
