Canon T3i

Published by at 10:08 pm under Equipment

The Canon T2i is a great camera at the price it is set at. Now comes its newest sibling the T3i. Amazon says it is already in stock in the U.S. $900.

The EOS T3i is known in Europe as the EOS 600D, and is an upper entry-level DSLR. It continues to use the same 18MP CMOS sensor that is in the Rebel T2i (550D) but gains a tilt and swivel 1,040k dot LCD monitor like the one offered on the more expensive 60D. It also gains the ability to remotely control flashguns using its internal flash, a feature previously only featured on higher-end models. Alongside the camera, Canon is also launching the 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS II, a cosmetically revised version of its optically stabilized kit lens. Another new feature is the ability to shoot 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1, previewable in Live View. (I like this!!)
