The EOS 1100D is Canon's budget model and it shows in the comparatively simple specification and cheapish look ... However, the camera gets all the important stuff, such as metering and focus, right most of the time, and the targeted user group should be perfectly happy with the out-of-camera JPEGs. quote

Although the 1100D may be slightly less accessible than the Nikon D3100 for the brand brand new photographer, it also happens to be the more advanced model. And with that said, it would be fair to say that the 1100D certainly raises the bar for the entry-level DSLR market.

Marking a new entry point to the Rebel line, the Canon T3 offers good image quality, a friendly design, and excellent battery life. Although its burst-shooting capabilities don't match the best-in-class, and has a few omissions such as dust removal and spot metering, these are fairly easy to...

The 1100D is a decent first rung on the EOS ladder, though a compact system camera like Panasonic’s G3 might be a better bet for anyone who prefers DSLR-like control but a smaller form factor.

Ultimately while some of the EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D's specifications are fairly basic, it does offer good image quality, Live View and 720p HD movies from a big-name at an affordable price. As such it represents a good choice for entry-level DSLR buyers.

With the features added to improve ease of use taken into account, this camera should find a home in many a beginner's kit bag, and even maybe in the camera kits of some more advanced photographers.

Fairly easy to use and able to produce consistently good image quality there isn't much that's inherently wrong with the 1100D ... the 1000D remains a decent enough camera to learn the ropes with.

The EOS 1100D / T3 is a great entry-level DSLR camera that's well-suited to its beginner target audience. The combination of proven metering, auto-focus and processing systems with a sensible 12 megapixel sensor and simplified control layout is a winning one.

The 1100D is a great entry-level DSLR for beginners, providing the user with preset modes of shooting as well as manual settings for more advanced users and expressive shots. At 12 megapixels it takes great stills and 720p video, though the lack of an external audio input is disappointing. The...
