First time DSLR buyers might be a little scared at first when they start playing around with this camera. But once you get the hang if it, you will not want to use the Basic Controls, instead you will use the Advanced Controls all the time. The pictures are stunning and the option to add a slave flash were a plus for me. If you want to buy this camera as your first DSLR I recommend it 100%. If you have a little more knowledge of DSLR's then you are better off with the Canon 60D or 7D.

Having been a professional journalist and a horse show photographer in the past, I wanted a camera that was user-friendly yet capable of providing me with truly excellent, high-resolution images. I researched digital cameras for six months before purchasing the EOS Rebel T3i, and the camera has definitely lived up to its reputation. I took it on a two-week vacation across the U.S., photographing both scenery and wildlife, including scenes from a moving vehicle. I was thrilled; the images were marvellous. The accompanying instructional DVD is quite helpful to the professional and the fledgling photographer. If you want images that you can enlarge into quality 20 X 30 shots or just preserve for posterity, this is the camera for you.

Very new to photography and did loads of homework on diff products and stumbled upon this lil baby. Fantastic piece of equipment and it is designed to teach you the very basics, with its subtitles for diff features. You def. still need to get loads more knowledge on how to use if you are green to it all, so for me, I read the whole manual, and currently live on youtube and pro-photographer website. This device has enormously sparked another level of interest to life, and the moments and surroundings we live in.

Best investment we've ever made! I can't say how happy we are to have a camera that can capture those precious moments of our kids. Our point and shoot would take forever to capture a picture. But this camera I haven't missed a beat. My wife uses the automatic settings (pictures look great) and I use full manual, because I'm a nerd. Again, can't say how happy we are with this camera...wouldn't take a $1 million dollars for it...the pictures we've taken so far are priceless, moments we'll never get again!

First impression: WOW! This is everything I could have dreamed for! Literally!

The T3i functions like a dream and is easy to use. It also tasks beautiful pictures and has allowed me to expand my photography horizons from point-and-shoot and iPhone/iPad to something more flexible.

Everything functions as expected and I have not encountered any hardware or software problems, even though I use it pretty much every day. The lens swaps out easily for another lens if you want and it is very easy to clean and care for. The LCD screen is very helpful. It fits perfectly with a standard non-Canon tripod I had from my point-and-shoot (also non-Canon.)

The stock lens provided is excellent for general photography and covers pretty much every scope you could desire but I also got a telephoto zoom 75mm-300mm lens to augment my range.

When I got my T3i, I was a total and complete novice. It took me months of deliberation and research to decide on this particular camera. I am so glad I did! I HIGHLY recommend this camera to anyone who wants to step up from smartphones and point-and-shoots to something a bit beefier but doesn't want to invest a couple months' rent.

There isn't a high learning curve and I have mastered quite a few more complicated techniques using exclusively online resources and books checked out from my library.

The camera has allowed me to further my creative desires and broaden the horizons for this particular art form, which is exactly what I wanted. I had the passion and drive to photograph to start with and the T3i has helped me take it to the next level.

Great Camera Overall, but the included 75-300 Telephoto lens does not have image stabilization. As I bought this as my first real camera, I didn't even think to look into this extra lens, but it turns out it doesn't have image stabilization, which makes it very hard to take a picture without a tri-pod. After purchasing this camera, I ended up finding another combo set that has a 55-250 Canon lens bundled with it at a store locally that had IS on the additional lens for a lower price.... nothing against the seller or the camera, its is just as described in the listing, but if you are new to these cameras, there may be better deals out there.

Bought it just before my trip to Florida. Very happy with the camera however not so happy with the 70-300 mm lens I received with it. Go for 55-250 mm lens instead it's better than the 70-300 mm lens for many reasons. For starters it has IS which makes a whole lot difference. Also what I always noticed was I had to keep switching lens every time I decided to take pictures of anything in close proximity to me. You have to stand far back from the object if you have 70-300 mm lens mounted on the camera. Only if I bought 55-250 mm lens would have been a better choice. Overall camera is good just wish I picked a different lens.

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.

Since the DSLR cameras have came out I've wanted one. This camera is everything I expected and more.
Shipping was excellent. I will be buying more lenses and other photo equipment from Amazon.

The only thing I would warn about was my fault. I didn't read description of the 75-300 zoom lens close enough I does not
have image stabilization but still a very good buy.

I bought this over other name brand but lower priced cameras because my older AE-1 still works flawlessly,,It has many features that didn't come with it's competitor,like IR control,better control in low light situations,depth of field feature,and filter features! The only thing I do not care for is the dail up top,has a mark for shutter priority,labeled TV ?? Other than that,it has enough features to handle any picture shooting situation
