The EOS Rebel T3i has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies as used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel's light-gathering efficiency. Its APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format).
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically speeds up the entire EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's camera operations for intuitive operation and offers improvements in both fine detail and natural color reproduction. It works in concert with the EOS Rebel T3i DSLR's CMOS Image Sensor to achieve phenomenal levels of performance in nearly any situation.

Simply Amazing Camera
I still own two original Canon AE1 film SLR cameras and I have owned and used a digital EOS Rebel XTi for the past 3-1/2 to 4 years. This camera was an upgrade and ... WOW what an understatement that is. From the redesign of the grip to the flip-out view screen to the numerous new features ... and the ability to do 1080P HD Video!! As I said in the title ... a Simply Amazing Camera. Whether you are a complete beginner to SLR cameras and are just using it with completely automatic settings or a seasoned veteran photographer using detailed manual settings ... the camera takes stunning pictures. Canon has again set the bar very high with this latest addition to the EOS line.

I would definitely recommend this camera. Easy to change sets...with dials! Question or support is only a phone call away.

Although I have owned a digital camera before, never have i owned one with so many options. I purchased my T3i a week ago and have been reading the handbook that came with the camera. Nothing but confusion. I understood some of what i read, however, when it came time to make my own adjustments to the camera I was totally confused. Then came the birthday party of my girlfriends mother. I was asked to take pictures. At first i was nervous and hesitant to take pictures that everyone would be viewing and seeing my mistakes. Boy! Was I wrong to feel that way. While it was in the Auto mode, i clicked away. I took several shots of people using the portrait mode as well. I was completely surprised to see the clarity, sharp focus as well as the intentional blurring(portrait mode) make my pictures come alive. Now it has me definitely inspired to learn more about my new camera and explore the seemingly endless options of picture taking. Thanks Canon.

I had wanted this camera for about 2 years before I actually made the decision to purchase it. And I am so happy I did! I did a lot of research before I bought it, this being my first DSLR. I decided this was the correct decision for my level of expertise and what I wanted to shoot. The controls are very easy to understand but still have enough complexity to make it different than your basic point and shoot digital camera. This camera is an amazing learning tool and perfect for many levels of photographers.
