      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

      This is an ENTRY level DSLR. Yet, it performs very well. The 12.1 MP sensor provides very nice, sharp pictures, with a low amount of noise (grainy). All 105+ Canon EF and EF-S lenses will fit it. When I put my 24-105mm red ring ( "L") lens on it, the results are difficult to distinguish from my higher end cameras. I will recommend this Canon T3 to anyone just starting in photography, or if you are making the switch from a P&S camera. The learning curve is VERY short as well, just put it on Auto Mode and you have instant success with very sharp, clear pictures. When you add to your collection of lenses, the quality of your pictures goes up as well. I highly recommend this camera.

            Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

            I had wanted this camera for about 2 years before I actually made the decision to purchase it. And I am so happy I did! I did a lot of research before I bought it, this being my first DSLR. I decided this was the correct decision for my level of expertise and what I wanted to shoot. The controls are very easy to understand but still have enough complexity to make it different than your basic point and shoot digital camera. This camera is an amazing learning tool and perfect for many levels of photographers.

                    I have owned a eso rebel 35mm and liked the performance. I decided to buy the EOS Rebel T3i because of the name and to view pictures before printing.

                        I might be a lot happier if the software I spent 30 minutes installing on my Macintosh (EOS Utility) worked instead of telling me, right out of the box, that "Cannot be used with this version of the operating system." On the other hand, maybe the software isn't as good as Graphic Converter, so I wouldn't be any happier.

                            camera is an amazing buy for the money. I was able to unpack it and begin shooting good pictures IMMEDIATELY, using the fully automatic settings. it takes crystal clear pictures, day or night, rain or shine from the football stands. It has been a great camera, with a great price! Professional looking photos without the professional photographer price tag!

                              I just received this camera yesterday and right out of the box, I have been able to shoot professional-grade photos. The controls are very easy to use and the body is very lightweight. My only suggestion is to invest in lens with better zoom capabilities. Overall, a great investment for people looking to take their photography to the next level!!!

                                  Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:

                                  This is my first dSLR after many years of using point-and-shoot cameras from the PowerShot series. I was reluctant to venture into dSLR ownership because the models I had opportunity to actually use were bulky and heavy, and I didn't want to go back to the days of lugging around all of the gear that goes with an SLR. I came across this camera by accident, and the package deal that came with it was too good to pass up, so on a whim I decided to get my first "big girl camera" -- I have never been so pleased with an impulse purchase as I am with this camera! It's the perfect size (my hands are small), with the grips and shutter in logical places, and lightweight enough to be comfortably carried on a long hike. The picture quality is outstanding, with a variety of options for as little or as much control as the user desires. I purchased this camera in September, so I'm reserving opinion on the learning curve -- the first time I put it in manual mode, I found the settings display to be a little intimidating and got so lost in figuring out how to change the settings that my subject matter wandered away and disappeared before I could take the picture. I am extremely impressed with the battery life -- I spent a whole day taking pictures, almost 800 shots, and the battery was still well above the halfway point (I should note that I use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen, other than for changing the settings or taking a shot with the camera in a place that my head won't fit.) It starts up fast when it is turned on, as well as recovering from power-saving mode. I have experienced the refusal to take a picture mentioned by another reviewer, but not to the degree that it couldn't be quickly corrected by moving slightly and refocusing -- it seems to happen when I am too close to a subject for the lens that I am using. This is my third Canon, and I continue to be extremely pleased with the quality and performance of their products.
