Canon EOS 600D DSLR Camera


The price point of DSLR cameras have significantly dropped over the last few years. With the implementation of new technology, DSLRs are becoming increasingly simpler to use and customers buy them for their superior image quality and manual controls.

The Canon EOS 600D sells at a market operating price of Rs. 49,460. This is overall a really great camera with a good design and build quality and impressive features. The cost of the camera is the only thing that comes into question. The EOS 550D has...

Canon EOS Rebel T3i


The Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a complete picture-taking machine, especially when you use it with its 18-135mm, f/3.5-5.6 IS optional kit lens. The latest Rebel features an LCD that you can swing out and position at a variety of angles, as well as full HD...

Adjustable 3-inch LCD ; Outstanding image quality, even at ISO 1600 ; Wireless flash transmitter for multiple flashes ; Full HD recording options with external mic jack

Some physical controls are oddly placed ; Auto White Balance struggles in indoor lighting ; Lack of single-button movie recording

The Canon EOS Rebel T3i, with an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS optional kit lens, is a complete picture-taking and moviemaking machine.

Canon T3i Digital Camera Review


The Canon Rebel T3i (also known as the Canon 600D or Kiss X5 in certain parts of the world) enters the fray just beneath Canon's recently-released 60D, with the same articulated LCD, 18MP sensor, and integrated wireless strobe control. It's got a...

Very accurate colors ; Great auto white balance

Poor resolution with the kit lens ; The live view autofocus has issues

One word comes to mind when discussing the Canon Rebel T3i: safe. Canon certainly found a very appealing formula with the T2i and is not looking to spoil the recipe by changing too much. While Canon's certainly still the name to beat in the entry-level...

Canon EOS Rebel T3i (Body Only)


The Canon EOS Rebel T3i delivers excellent video capabilities and image and video quality.

If you shoot both still and video, the T3i's controls can be frustrating to operate, and it's not terribly fast for burst shooting sports, kids, or pets.

For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and...

Canon EOS Rebel T3i


It's time to really shake off the winter blahs and take some photos and video with the new Canon T3i DSLR. Is it worth the trip outdoors? We charge the battery and find out in our full review below, so read on.

Fine 18-megapixel images ; Excellent 3-inch vari-angle LCD ; Full HD video at 30 fps ; 3.7 fps at full resolution

Tends to run warm indoors ; Video is good but focusing is cumbersome ; No burst mode in A+ auto

The Canon T3i features sterling picture quality, eminently usable vari-angle screen and solid 1080p HD videos, you really can’t go wrong with it.

Canon Rebel T3i / EOS 600D Review


Ever since Canon introduced its original 'Digital Rebel' back in August 2003 - famously the first 'affordable' digital SLR - the company has continually developed and refined its entry-level line with ever-more-frequent releases, adding in more and...

Excellent image quality even at high ISO settings ; Extremely high detail and resolution at base ISO, good per-pixel sharpness ; Good dynamic range, improved by use of Highlight Tone Priority ; On-screen Q-Menu offers good access to shooting settings ;...

Slow AF in Live Mode reduces benefit of articulated screen for stills shooting ; White balance often excessively orange under artificial light ; Button functions in live view mode very different from conventional mode ; Key features and parameters...

The Rebel T3i / 600D is exactly the camera that we'd expect it to be - it's feature-rich, reasonably priced, enjoyable to use and, most importantly, takes great pictures. It's not a particularly innovative camera but it is a generally well planned one....

What follows is a quick overview of the video capabilities of the Canon EOS Rebel T3i. Read our comprehensive analysis and testing results in greater detail at

Canon is a leader in both camera and camcorder products, so it should come to no surprise that the Rebel T3i is one of the better video-capable DSLRs we’ve seen. We lauded the Canon 7D's video performance last year, and the T3i came close to matching...
