The Canon T3 is the base DSLR model, with limited video capabilites and a 12m sensor. The T3i is the deluxe model with an 18m sensor and full manual video capabilities, featuring a 3" high pixel count swing out LCD. I prefer the T3 because I shoot interview videos in 720p and the T3 never overheats. In addition I can take up to 18 minute videos. I use vintage Nikkor lenses with adapters exclusively, and I shoot in manual mode and get completely professional results. The only downside is preset shutter speed, but as long as I don't try to tape a sporting event it's not a problem.
I am also trying to decide between these two cameras. It appears to me that the T3i has image stabilization whereas the T3 does not. Is that correct? Also, am I understanding correctly that the T3 does not have the automatic dust cleanser? I have a Rebel XSi and I'm looking for my niece.
I'm also considering either the T3i or T3. I'm buying a dslr for taking jewelry photos, I don't shoot videos (but curious to know if the video on a dslr is better than the video on a point-n-shoot?). All I care about is the photo image quality and details, will both cameras give me the same image quality? should I go for T3 and save the money on a good lens instead? what kind of lens should I get for talking jewelry photos? or do I even need to buy a separate lens?
I'm also thinking about getting the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS point-and-shoot because of the zoom, I guess with this camera I don't need to spend the money on a lens, but do you think the image quality will be as good as a dslr such as the T3i/T3?
would like to know if this camera is worth the money, I have been wanting to get a camera for a starting professional photografer but I am just starting. And I know canon is the best plus I could use the camcorder on it. does this camera have hve a good shot results? my name is Dama Hinds 479-871-512, there is only1 used left and I want to pay tonite.
I'm having trouble downloading photos on this Canon EOS rebel to my laptop. This function used to work perfectly before, and now, the icon for the download won't even show up. Can anyone help me troubleshoot?
