Canon EOS 1100D - A Fairly Decent Entry Level DSLR


For a long time, Canon has been focusing on DSLR cameras aimed at the prosumer target audience. However, the trend has slowly changed with Canon launching competitive DSLR cameras for the lower price segment. The EOS 400D and then, the EOS 1000D were...

The Canon EOS 1100D is a big upgrade to the 1000D, but in areas such as the screen size and video recording capabilities, you don’t get as much as the Nikon D3100 for example which costs Rs. 31,960. The Canon is priced lower than the Nikon D3100 though...

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Review


We almost felt like Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood. We closed our eyes and the next thing we knew, a year was gone. In this case we didn't travel in “fairy space time,” but blinked and Canon sent out a replacement for the XS and XSi DSLRs. The...

Responsive, good quality 12.2-megapixel DSLR ; 720p HD Videos at 30 fps ; 3fps burst mode

No front AF Assist lamp (uses built-in flash) ; Images not super sharp ; Awkward control placement

The Canon EOS Rebel T3 is a mixed bag. In cameras, you really do get what you pay for. The T3 doesn’t deliver what it should, even for the low price.

Canon EOS Rebel T3 (with 18-55mm IS II lens)


Rather than introduce new dSLR models at bargain-basement prices as Pentax and Sony tend to do, Canon traditionally lets its slightly higher-end models gradually fall in price until they're the de facto entry-level models. But its current starter, the...

Unsurprisingly, the Canon EOS Rebel T3 delivers excellent photo quality

Average performance, a nothing-but-the-basics feature set and claustrophobic viewfinder leave the camera an uninspiring shooter

Though it's a perfectly fine entry-level camera, there are better options for the money than the Canon EOS Rebel T3.

Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D


The Canon T3/1100D entered life as an entry-level DSLR with basic features including an entry-level basic feature that everyone can love - a low price.That feature, low price, is indeed the primary reason to buy this DSLR over the rest of the Canon EOS...

Canon Rebel T3 / EOS 1100D Review


The bottom-end of the interchangeable lens camera has become fiercely competitive with manufacturers culling features and cutting-corners to offer a tempting upgrade path from compact cameras, at the most attractive price. As a result we've seen...

Decent resolution and detail at base ISO ; Consistently reliable metering and good AF accuracy ; Useful highlight tone priority mode ; Intuitive user interface ; Beginner-friendly 'Basic+' control Screens ; On-screen Q-Menu offers good access to...

Plastic body has a cheap feel to it, no rubberized grips ; Very simple video mode (no manual controls, only one resolution setting, no external mic) ; Very slow contrast detect AF in live view and movie mode ; Comparatively small viewfinder ; Combined...

The Canon EOS 1100D is a solid entry-level performer but doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary. The image quality is decent, it's easy to use and beginners will find their way around the user interface pretty quickly. However, as usual it is worth...

What follows is a quick overview of the video capabilities of the Canon EOS Rebel T3. Read our comprehensive analysis and testing results in greater detail at

The biggest disappointment we had with the Canon T3’s video mode was the camera’s lack of essential manual controls when shooting video. Unlike it’s more expensive sibling, the Canon T3i, the T3 does not allow you to adjust aperture, shutter speed, or...

Canon Rebel T3 Review


Canon introduced its Rebel T3, also known as the EOS 1100D, in February 2011. The T3 is an upgrade from the Canon Rebel XS/1000D, which made its debut on the market in 2008. Canon

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Review


Announced early this year, the Canon T3 fits into the middle of the entry-level Rebel lineup with a 12.2 megapixel sensor and 720p HD video.

Good image quality ; Nice JPEG burst mode ; Great at high ISO

No video continuous AF ; Smaller monitor ; AF times not class-leading

In short, there's a lot to like with the T3 performance and not much to dislike. Image files are output at 72 dots per inch, which means you'll be resizing to send e-mails or make prints, and providing a printed user's manual that covers all camera ...

Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D


That's certainly not the case: the EOS T3 / 1100D manages to hit a respectably low price point, while comfortably undercutting its major rival, the Nikon D3100. As such, while the specification of the latest Canon is solid and boosts most of its...

Good image quality that's similar to modern 14 Mpixel rivals ; Quick and easy access to many settings ; Live View and HD video recording (albeit at 720p only) ; Supplied with decent RAW and remote control software

Plasticky body with no rubber surfaces - feels cheap ; Continuous shooting buffer small. Slows down for RAW ; Relatively small 2.7in screen ; Weaker popup flash than many rivals

Canon's EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D is a solid entry-level DSLR which ticks the boxes of most first-time buyers without breaking the bank. By employing numerous parts from previous models, there's no surprises in terms of performance, but the 12 Megapixel...

Canon EOS 1100D


The 1100D is designed to tempt users to upgrade from point-and-shoots and as a result carries a budget price tag

Although the EOS 1100D looks and feels its budget price tag, it is a capable SLR that offers great photographic results.
