    Great Camera

    By Cyberpip

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

    Have owned this camera for 4 years now. It has proven to be a versatile and very usable camera. Fast focusing and a fairly accurate metering system. It impressed me from day one. Light weght and comfortable to hold. I own other canons to include the 6D and 70D, but I still find myself gra bing this one for a days shooting simply because I am so used to it. It has never let me down.

    The Little Camera That Can

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

    While I'm a newcomer to the world of DSLR photography, I can't help but praise the capabilities of this amazing camera. it many of the features featured in more upscale cameras, but it's user friendly controls make learning its operation a snap. That said, you can take some amazing shots with the T3. I know because I have!

    Best Entry Level Camera

    By Gerard

    from Canoga Park, CA

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

    The Canon T3i for me is the best camera for DSLR beginners. The articulated screen is so convenient especially in hard angled views. the kit lens that comes with it will be a good practice lens. I am using this camera for low light shooting and astrophotography and am really happy with the results. I'm sure this camera would last long when properly cared and maintained.

    Worst camera purchase ever

    By Cedric

    from Washington, D.C.

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

    I have had the camera for two years, had to return it twice for defects under warranty, the first time one month after purchasing it because a glitch in the software made it impossible to eject the SD card. Now, I have to send the lens in, (third service request), because a screw has gotten loose and rattles inside, messing up the autofocus function, and at times blocking the manual adjustment altogether. In addition, from the beginning, there were multiple times when the focus just goes in and out, for ever, and makes it impossible to actually release the trigger. Needless to say, many great shots were missed because of this inability to simply shoot. I have had to disable automatic focus. But then again, it is easy to forget that I am no longer on automatic focus, and have to manually focus instead. Result: pictures end up being fuzzy. In short, this camera is a huge waste of time and money.

    GREAT CAMERA

    By Casual photo bug

    from Southeast

    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

    Previously had a Canon Rebel and burned through quite a few rolls of film over the years but it took great pictures on vacation and of family events. WOW ... the Canon T3 DSLR is fantastic. Really great pictures and ease of use. I'm not a professional photog by any means but with this camera you can with a little imagination take some really good shots. I would recommend this camera especially for someone who is use to point and shoot cameras and wants to step up to a real camera.

        I have used several other brands of cameras. This canon camera is easy to use and by far much superior to other cameras. I am a beginner using this camera and feel like a pro at the quality of pictures it takes

          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR with Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

          I got this camera with the 18-55mm kit lens and the 75-300mm kit lens in a big bundle which included a flash, a camera bag, two extra batteries, a memory card.. etc. I had been looking at the T3i before this, but after seeing the bundle and reading dozens of positive reviews, I went with this one. So far, the battery life is great, the features (although I'm still figuring out Manual mode) are excellent, and the overall camera build is perfect for my small hands. My only complaints are: 1. the quality in burst mode / when shooting sports (I outdoor rock climb) is not too grand. Lots of blurry images and it tends to turn the flash on in broad daylight--thus throwing me and my friends off the rock. 2. Auto-focus is unbearably slow in live view. Don't even try. The auto focus in the view-finder is much better, although it won't focus quickly (or sometimes at all) on moving subjects! It may not sound like it, but I do LOVE this camera! I only started photography about 2 years ago, and upgraded to this from a point and shoot. GREAT first DSLR, and I do recommend it for macro photography, portrait photography, etc. Maybe not professional sport photography, but hey! You could certainly make it work with the large number of settings on this camera.
