The Rebel T3i / 600D is exactly the camera that we'd expect it to be - it's feature-rich, reasonably priced, enjoyable to use and, most importantly, takes great pictures. It's not a particularly innovative camera but it is a generally well planned one. quote

The Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a premium entry level DSLR that captures excellent still images and video. It is Mac friendly in terms of its bundled software, and its compatibility with Apple imaging applications.

For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters.

The Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a fast, high-performing digital SLR, but it isn't as good as its predecessor, the Editors' Choice-winning T2i, which, thankfully, is still available.

Overall, I liked the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, and it remains a top choice for those looking for a capable yet budget-friendly camera. While I don't think most Rebel T2i owners are going to be rushing out to buy one, it's a nice upgrade for those with older Rebel models. Just don't forget to save some...

Staking out the high end of the Rebel line, the Canon T3i shares the excellent image quality of its predecessor (the T2i), and offers the articulating LCD, remote flash control, and creative filters also found in the 60D. With Full HD video support, fast autofocus, and good quality optics, the Canon...

While the 600D / T3i doesn't offer much innovation over its predecessor for traditional shooters, it still delivers excellent picture quality in a solid, compact and affordable body. Sure, if you're not bothered about the articulated screen and wireless flash control, then it's worth looking out for...

The EOS Rebel T3i is more for the DSLR newbie who wants great picture quality right off the bat, with room to start exploring further, if they want. With its sterling picture quality, eminently usable vari-angle screen and solid 1080p HD videos, you really can’t go wrong.

I think it was the greatest DSRL of 2011 and also for 2012 will be a great camera. Great image quality and great durability because it often grounded but with no scratches or damages.

I can't talk enough about this camera. Its a beast, 18 MP. My wife picked it up for so that we can have high quality pictures of our Daughter Leah. I love all the features this "beginners" camera offers. I also have install the Magic Lantern software and it has added many more features to the...

This is a great camera for a tech savvy beginner like myself. I needed something better than a phone or point and shoot, but not as expensive as the 5D Mark line. There is a learning curve and it gets extremely annoying when photos don't come out as you wanted, but you learn from it and become a...

I'm not an expert in photography but wanted a basic SLR digital and am VERY happy with it. I don't need more... perhaps a better lens and an external flash.

If you know very little about DSLR cameras, this is a great entry level camera. Its upgradeability is keen for those who want a camera to extend beyond their ‘learning phase’. I found it easy to grasp and easy to understand out of the box. If you are comfortable with experimenting, this camera...

This is the first DSLR that I've owned, but I have been taking pictures long before owning this camera. This camera has allowed me to open up all the doors when taking pictures. I love the 18 MP on this camera, and I love the 1080p video as well. This is a well rounded camera that offers all that...
