Canon EOS Rebel T3i (with 18-55mm IS II Lens) Reviewed on March 22, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Canon EOS Rebel T3i (with 18-55mm IS II Lens)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 16 reviews

The Bottom Line: 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 general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up. Read review

Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (Body Only)
