Canon T3 Features

  • Canon's CMOS sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers the most pixels in its class. It offers many of the same new technologies to maximize each pixel's light gathering efficiency that were first seen with the professional EOS-1D Mark III model
  • The improved DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed
  • The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR's new 3:2 multiple aspect ratio, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provided S2 and S3 image-recording quality are all possible thanks to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor
  • DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 12.2 Megapixels at 3.0 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, enhanced Face Detection Live mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral Optimization
  • With a broad range of ISO settings, the EOS Rebel T3 enables shooting from sunrise to sunset and helps ensure capture of the finest detail
  • With enhanced high-sensitivity optimization, subjects can be captured clearly and easily at high shutter speeds without flash, with minimized blur and noise
  • The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR's expanded repertoire of technologies includes shooting video in brilliantly clear, exactingly sharp high definition for playback on your HDTV
  • Shooting at 1280 x 720 at 30 (29.97) or 25 frames per second, HD video can be taken immediately through the EOS Rebel T3 camera's intuitive operation and layout. Parameters for white balance and picture style are already set - just grab and go
  • The EOS Rebel T3 has a high-precision, 9-point AF system utilizing a high-precision, f/5.6 cross-type center point. The 9-point AF system uses both normal and high-precision focus depending on the aperture and available light. The 9 focus points can be chosen automatically or manually selected
  • The EOS Rebel T3 features Canon's newest Dual-layer sensor, with 63 zones. By measuring not only the amount of light, but also taking into account color and luminosity, this new system delivers a very high level of accuracy for better results every time
  • Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS Rebel T3 gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as sports on a cloudy day, or indoor holiday scenes
  • With instant startup times, speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS Rebel T3 is one of the fastest cameras available today. It can shoot up to 3.0 fps (frames per second), in bursts of up to approximately 3 JPEGs or 2 RAW files, so you won't miss a shot
  • The EOS Rebel T3 has a huge, bright 2.7-inch TFT (thin film transistor) LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels and a viewing angle of 170deg. It's perfect for Live View composition or viewing camera settings like AF, ISO, Metering, AF Point selection and flash options
  • Live View Function enables you to view your subjects directly on the huge 2.7-inch LCD monitor. It's easy to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focus
  • Basic+ is a new creative imaging feature that makes it easy to create the image effects you want. It can be set with the Quick Control screen in Basic Zone modes. Basic+ provides two options
  • Shoot by ambience selection: Based on the Picture Style and its parameters (sharpness, contrast, saturation and color tone), the exposure compensation and white balance correction are adjusted to attain the selected ambience. You can also select the strength of the ambience effect
  • Shoot by lighting or scene type: Although the actual parameter set is the white balance, the settings are expressed in more understandable terms
  • The Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR demystifies great photography by including an in-camera Feature Guide. Appearing on the camera's LCD, the Feature Guide displays a simple description or advice for the respective function
  • Feature Guide is displayed in each shooting mode, during Mode Dial operations and for Quick Control screen functions (during normal shooting, Live View shooting, movie shooting and playback)
  • The Feature Guide appears automatically during Mode Dial operations and when a function is selected on the Quick Control screen
  • The EOS Rebel T3 uses popular SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS Rebel T3 DSLR's compact and lightweight body design
  • The EOS Rebel T3 is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process

Rebel T3 has lot of options

By

from Locust Fork, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased a T3 for my wife to replace a Fuji 18X point and shoot. She has really enjoyed the camera and the additional options that my XSI does not have. It only has 12.2 mp but for most people it is enough. It was a great addition since she can also use my assortment of lens.

Love this camera!

By

from Topeka, KS  -  Casual Photographer

I love this camera! I bought the bundle pack that came with another lens, extra battery, memory card and a carrying case. It was the best deal that I found! This camera is so easy to use. I didn't know much about photography before I bought this. My pictures look great and look professional! I love that I don't have blurring pictures of my kids playing sports or just running around outside anymore!

I love it

By

from Bayside, New York  -  Casual Photographer

T3 Rebel is my first SLR camera. Although I've used point and shoot cameras for years, the quality of pics from this camera is superior. The fast and accurate auto focus is a pleasure. I do have to get used to carrying a larger camera. I am going to Italy and am anxious to use the camera to capture memories of the trip.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID S  Because Refurbished is better then new.
Shopper  do these cameras last long?
PETER B  I have owned canon AE1 film camera and several point and shoot digitals in recent years. I bought the canon Rebel T3 about a month ago to get into DSLR. Some of the reviews labelled this camera as cheap plastic and no real features. I ignored these "warnings?" and bought it anyway. I have found that this camera has plenty of features and is built light and sturdy. Many negative critics who write reviews must be such talented people that they need to spend thousands for a camera that I bet they won't like anyway. Examine your reason for purchasing the Rebel T3. If you want a camera that has just about anything you will ever use, buy it. It's not cheap, on the contrary it works well and will last me a long time. I am even using my old Vivitar lenses on it.
