Canon EOS Rebel T3i (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens) Review – Pros and Cons

Canon EOS Rebel T3i also known as 600D is a compromise between its predecessors and the much more advanced model of Rebel T4i. The DSLR is provided with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and many other features that will be carefully analyzed in what follows to determine whether the price Amazon is offering is indeed a good deal or not.

The online retailer, Amazon is selling Canon’s EOS Rebel T3i for $610.96. While this may not be the best price on the market, it is definitely the most reliable website you can order the product from.

The 18.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor is “responsible” for the great image and video quality that Canon’s DSLR delivers. However, the small speed (3.7 fps) renders the device somewhat underdeveloped when compared with other products from the same category. For instance, images illustrating moving subjects turned out to be very hard to capture. The digital camera has a slow response to commands, which is why our reviewers didn’t manage to immortalize the exact moments they wanted.

So far, the Rebel T3i has more or less the same features as the Rebel T2i. In fact, the two models have even the same light sensitivity, that is, ISO 100 – ISO 6,400/ 12,800 (extended). While images looked pretty sharp and clear up to ISO 3,200, the pixels became noticeable when we set the ISO at 6,400.

Images are true to life in that the colors are well reproduced in every exposure mode you select. The videos have a high quality, as well, but the built-in microphone is mono, which might disappoint pretentious users. In our opinion, the sound quality was very good due to the wind filter that was embedded in the DSLR.

The Rebel T3i is rather big (3.1 x 5.2 x 3.9 inches; 1.1 pounds) and it gets even bigger if you replace the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens with the 18-135mm one. Manufacturers purposefully designed the shape of the camera to enable users to easily hold the camera, but the plastic components give it a cheap aspect. The rear side of the digital camera has been provided with a 3” articulated screen and many buttons that facilitate the use of the device.

All in all, Canon rebel T3i is a good camera that delivers high quality images and videos. It is not very different from its predecessor, the Rebel T2i, so the price is too big for what the DSLR actually does.

1. Good quality images and videos

1. Too expensive.
2. Slow frame per second speed
3. Rough aspect
