I love the dslr. I have missed great shots because of a digital camera processing between shots. I wish the dslr's were smaller but I carry a handbag so why not a camera?

In addition to travel/landscape photography, I take action pics at pro football games and live-fire training pictures for our fire department. Many of these pice, I subnit for trade publication use. So, with the diverse interest and a history with the Rebel line of bodies, I am in a good position to make a comparison. This new T3i body is everything I hoped it would be and more. I haven't had a use for the video capabilities of this camera, but have been very impressed with the still shots. The overall feel of the camera is really nice. Being a little larger than previous Rebel models is a bonus, while saving weight and bulk over my 40D. Although the frame rate is a little slower than my 40, it has an acceptable rate, with excellent subject tracking. The camera has a solid feel and is EASY it use for first time Canon users. This flip-out screen doesn't excite me like it does others. In fact, I put a high-quality glass screen protector on it and leave the screen facing me, even in storage. For video users, I'm sure the screen is a plus. Honestly, the T2i would have filled my needs just fine, but for the slight cost difference, I chose the T3i anyway. I've used my L-series 70-200mm lens, with outstanding results. I also used a Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 and a Tamron 18-270mm. In all cases, the camera yielded great results. In live-view mode, the camera focuses slow and the lag time is irritating, but since I seldom use that feature, it's no big deal for me. If you want a good priced, full-feature camera, with a great feel, excellent picture quality and EASY to use, then this is it ! The T2i would be an equally impressive choice, if the screen is not a big deal to you. No, it's not in the same class as the 5D and other pro-line models, but it's not intended to be. But this is by far, the best compact sensor, intermediate camera I've used. I will try it out at NFL games this season, and anticipate the same great results. Highly recommended !

If you are buying because of the wireless flash know this. To make the wireless flash work you have to pop up the camera flash. Since you have to do that then it's kind of silly to spend all the money on a camera with that feature and buying a dedicated flash when all you need is a $25. slave sync to but on the bottom of any flash. I assumed it would work without having to use the camera flash but it won't. The real benefit to having that system is for exposure control though the camera. It should be called "wireless exposure control" not "Wireless flash" which makes people think it like a pocket wizzard or something. Other than that it's a great camera for the price point.

I am a photo enthusiast and take literally 1000's of pictures a year. The Cannon T3i is superior to the Nikon D70 (or any Nikon I have owned over the past 25 years)in terms of color and clarity of pictures.

Outstanding camera for a great price. I would highly recommend this to anyone. The only negative that I have found is that with the large LCD screen, using the eyecup causes your face to touch the screen leaving smudge marks. Canon should also offer a screen protector as an accessory.

You just can't beat the quality of this camera. I am amazed at the clarity of the pictures it can take using just a standard cannon 28-80 lens. I am still discovering new settings and things that I can do with it, but I can say that the picture quality is higher than my brother's T1i. It does fall short of a friends 24.4MP Nikon DSLR, but hey that is a $3000 camera. I am completely satisfied with the t3i and its capabilities.

There are a lot of reviews about this camera being a T2i with a swivel screen. I think the swivel screen is well worth it, especially for video. I owned the T2i, and video recording was difficult. I could never really focus on the subject because I couldn't see the screen. I loved the T2i. With the swivel screen, I LOVE THE T3i!

I actually do find the swivel screen extremely useful and use it in conjunction with a wireless remote and Gorilla pod in order to capture exotic angles and positions. I use this for taking pictures while travelling, photos/portraits of family and friends, and digital art projects. I love the clarity and vibrance of pictures and when I don't feel like making tons of manual adjustments, the pre-configured auto modes are pretty spot on. Works with my oldest EF lenses and this camera is simply fun to use.
