There are "no flash" modes available. By default the P/AV/TV/M modes don't bring up the flash. In the scene modes there should be a "no flash" mode and I also believe auto-flash is disable is sport and landscape modes. When it comes to a "silent shutter" you can disable the annoying BEEP that many digital cameras have but you'll still hear the actual shutter go off. I know the Canon 60D has "silent shutter" modes that actually reduces the noise produced by the shutter but I don't believe it filters down to this level. I can't say I own this camera but I own the ones on either side of it (T3 and 60D) before the T4i came out.
Which is better? Canon T3i 18MP w/ EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens Or Canon T3 12.2MP w/ 18-55mm IS II Len+75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens May 15, 2014
The T3i is a better camera with more features and a better, more modern sensor. The T3 is a budget model which uses older generation technology and leaves out a number of features. Plus the 75-300mm lens isn't very good -- you'd be better off with the 55-250mm IS lens which has IS Image Stabilization useful for fighting blurring.
Can it take pictures quickly, even in low light, with a flash? I have a toddler, & my current camera misses everything! Mar 17, 2014
I would tend to recommend not relying on the internal flash for this kind of thing but instead to consider an external flash like the Canon Speedlite 430EX II. In poor light, the internal flash uses bright pulses of light to provide enough light for the focusing system to work properly but these light pulses can be extremely distracting for your subject. The external flash uses a much less intrusive red focusing beam. Light from the 430EX can also be bounced from a white wall or ceiling in order to create a much softer and much more flattering quality of light. Also, the 430EX recharges much faster for the next shot, has greater range and doesn't eat up your camera's batteries.
t3 vs t3i Dec 8, 2013
For photography I think both are almost the same. But in the video subjet, the T3i is way better. In the the video mode you can control ISO, Speed, Aperture... In the T3 you can't just auto mode. If you you want to save some money and just take pictures and video in auto mode. Go for the T3... If money isnt a issue go for the t3i for sure.
When you upload pictures from the T3i to your computer, can you just put your memory card in the computer like you do with digital cameras? Alot of people are saying they connect the camera to their laptop so that's why I was curious! Hope that isn't a... Feb 26, 2013
YEAH if your laptop has a built in sd card reader , like MacBooks
Is this still a worthwhile purchase in July 2014? I'm a beginner looking for my first camera. Thanks. Jul 4, 2014
Yes this is still a very good camera. I'd buy it again if I needed to.
Yes it does.
How do I set the camera to achieve smallest possible lag time between depressing shutter button and the actual shot ? Right now lag is ridiculous -- 10 seconds. Oct 19, 2013
use the sports setting (picture of runner on dial) - that setting provides rapid release function
