Great beginner purchase
from Leavenworth, KS
Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit - Black:
Ordered this camera around a year and a half ago as my first SLR and am now just moving on to the Canon 70D. Great starting camera! Simple enough to use but also takes great photos in the process. Not the fastest to focus or sharpest when it comes to action but a great camera for landscape and portraits!

Difficult to use
from Stuart, Fl.
I've had a Rebel T3i for about a year. It will not take a picture that is any further then 30-49 feet. Beyond that, the image is tiny and not magnified. I have tried every trick I know. Changing lenses is useless. The 5x & 10x enhances the image only on the display screen. The actual picture is terrible and not at all enlarged. Every single time I use it, I'm disappointed.
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
from Detroit, MI
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
from Canoga Park, CA
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
from Washington, D.C.
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.

By Casual photo bug
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
