Here's a thread that's discussing using filters for shooting sunrise and sunsets.

Hi all. I'm thinking of upgrading my rebel XT to either the T3i or the T2i. My question is that the price difference between the 2 is about $150, with the features the T3i has over the T2i, is it worth it?

From what I have seen, the main difference is the articulating screen on the T3i. For shots above your head, or while shooting video, this can be a big bonus for some.

The T3i is a bit larger than the T2i and heavier but IMO the differences are pretty minor.

Image quality should be near identical as they use the same sensor.

The thing I would advise, if you can, is to wait a few more weeks to see if Canon announces the T4i, in which case the 2 and 3 should be cheaper as well. This is pretty much rumor at this point though, so you cant tell.

Bottom line for me is the articulating screen. Is it worth $150 more for that option? You have to make that call.

There's also wireless flash trigger and digital zoom in video. Also if you shop hard the difference is more like $100 or lees if you're lucky.

Hi, Newbie on the site here....I've taken pictures for 40+ years and have occasionally gotten a good shot. I was asked to do a wedding this coming September so the better-half got me a T3i for Christmas to get some practice on my first Canon DSLR. It's my second DSLR (first was an Olympus Evolt 410 which I gave away to our son). I'm in the middle of online Photography classes, and am feeling a little more stressed trying to learn all the terminology and settings. This T3i is making me look like a better photographer than I really am. This board is making me realize that I am a LONG way from being the "pro" I'd really like to be.

Thanks for all the input...I'm learning as I go.

I love the digital zoom feature on mine. I just got it last week, and am already looking at mounts, mics, and the like. But as a starving (not litterally) college kit who makes just enough to get by, it's hard to keep spending any extra case when you've got a killer camera and a mustang ;)

This was really helpful. After almost exclusively using my S95 for about a year, I started poking around for a new zoom lens, which then led to thoughts about upgrading from my XSi. I guess it's just back down the rabbit hole from here!

I bought my T3i off of Craigslist, and have used the articulated screen more than most would probably use it for. It's extremely nice to have that ability without having to buy a monitor (although, for pros, a monitor would still be worthy). But under budget, it's a nice touch. I don't mind the weight either, or the bigger size. The XSi was too small IMHO, and hard to keep in hand.

Just my two cents. I upgraded to a T3i from a Rebel XT. Having the swivel screen is nice for extended video recording. Especially when the camera is at a very low angle.

Haven't used the wireless flash function. So can't review that portion.

The articulating screen has made a lot of difference to my macro shots. I can get the camera close to the bugs and still use the screen for focus. With zoom in live view I have had way more success than with other cameras in getting the odd shot in focus.

I just got mine yesterday and in my limited use so far, the articulating screen has been far more handy than I'd expected. The size of the camera, relative to my old XSi, is much easier to grip as well.
