4.0 out of 5 stars Good, bad, and ugly, June 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 3ti is a great camera and takes great pictures. But I find one thing disappointing; I moved up from a canon pocket camera and the full features 3ti doesn't have the same features as the pocket camera. My pocket has color swap and color select, both are really neat features. The 3ti doesn't have these features. You would think that a camera costing almost 3 times as much would have at least as many, if not more, capabilities as one costing almost 3 times less.
After buying the 3ti I found out that the Nikon 5100 has these features. Go figure that.
Also you must be careful about the deals being offered.
The 75-300mm lens that comes as a special kit does not have the shake resistant capability. you have to read the fine print to know this. It also helps if you are not a novice, like I am. Shame on me for not spending months researching. An honest retailer would have explained this in the item description. I don't know if Amazon is at fault or the retailer; but either way a little heads up would have been nice. Not everyone out here is a pro.

Yeah I don't think it's Canon/Amazon's fault that you didn't know this...

For everyone's reference:
What "cuddysark" is referring to is Canon's IS capability, which stands for Image Stabilization. If you look in the name of the lens, this is just a standard, 75-300mm telephoto lens. No IS, no USM (which is their different AutoFocus motor). Make sure you do your homework before you drop $650.

"features" such as color swap and color select are really kind of gimmicky modes that most photographers would choose to implement in their post production work i.e. photoshop or other imaging software, for the simple reason that if you take a picture in this mode, you can never edit it later to change it back to a "normal" mode. This is why many SLR's will not have these shooting modes. If you're looking to do fun stuff like that, do it on your computer, and if it comes out bad you'll still have the originals.

No fine print is needed to see that the 75-300 is not IS. Despite all the hate it gets online, it is actually a really good lens for the price. It's not anything special, but remember that it's a kit lens. It's not supposed to be special. If you have trouble with shaking use a tripod to set the camera on a table or rock or whatever. No one is at fault, just sell the lens and upgrade it if you so choose.
