Why isn't much info here about the T3? I was looking into getting a Dslr but can't find much on it. I went to Bestbuy today and they told me that the T3 is the upgraded version of the XS and now it has HD movie at 720p.

I'm trying to get a Dslr for my detailing business and for family events. I found it new on ebay for 540.

I also found a used XS asking for 400 on craiglist but said price was negotiable.

So having a hard time picking a camera.
Any help will be much appreciated.

I played with a T3 at Wal-Mart tonight and loved it. It is a very nice camera and don't think you can go wrong with it. I believe it was 599. or 699. I noticed Wal-Mart online has the XS and kit lens plus 55-250, extra battery, card and camera bag for 699.

I'm guessing you'll be new to DSLR photography so I suppose the right questions to ask are: What is your budget? Also, what features are must-haves for your future camera purchase?

i was fiddling around with T3i at Fry's yesterday. Not bad but glad i got a 50D several weeks ago. T3i has less peronalized options than 50D in its menu; and after handling and shooting with 50D body several times i rather prefer it than any of the Rebels. T3i is a good camera, should be better than an XSi that i last had.


Body: Canon 5Dc, (Coming soon <<<6Dc, maybe I shall wait for 6Diic with TouchScreen!).
Other Favorite Camera:
Flash: YN560
Lenses: change all the time!

Thanks everyone for feedback.

After reading I think I might be checking out the T1i. My friend said its a good starter camera. My budget is around 400-600 if new. But if I can find a used one I rather get it.

I'm going be using it mostly for taking picture of cars after I'm done detailing them.

Going have a website soon and wanted to have some nice pictures to show people my work. I also like that it has 1080p video.

I'm just afraid that the camera came out 2 years ago and worried that it is outdated? I'm very new to this hobby and I have always been using point and shoot. But now I want to step it up and take better pics.

Going be reading a lot and checking what will work best for me. Any other recommendation?

The T1i does 1080p video at only 20fps, the T2i does 1080p at 24/25 or 30fps. The feature that sold me, being my first SLR, was that the T2i can do live view in all modes, but the T1i only does it in manual modes.

Here's a comparison of the T3 (12MP) vs T3i (18MP)

Take a pass on that older discontinued XS, especially at $500!
Look at a refurbished 500D or 550D, e.g.

For what you want to shoot (cars after detailing), the XS would be more than sufficient. The T1i is still a great camera and probably a better choice because you will want to branch into shooting other things as well, and the prices on T1i's are really good.

Thanks guys!

I went back to Wal-Mart today to buy a T3 and they didn't have one. They have a demo and they don't know when they will get them in for stock. I am kinda bummed.

If you would actually consider a used XS at $400, you really need to do more research. Heck, I've picked up used XSi's here in the $250-$275 range--and they're worth more than an XS.
