About - Canon EOS Rebel T3i
The EOS Rebel T3i is an 18-megapixel camera with an 18mm-55mm kit lens that has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8mm-88mm. It has a live-view 3-inch LCD (1,040,000 pixels). It also includes a through-the-lens viewfinder, which is helpful when composing in bright light.

Because it accepts interchangeable lenses, and includes a mirror and a through-the-lens viewfinder, we consider this model an SLR.

The camera's kit lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.5. The camera's shutter speed range is 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.

The EOS Rebel T3i stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards but has no on-board storage. It captures images as JPG or RAW files at a top resolution of 5184 x 3456 and full HD-resolution video as MOV files at a top resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 25 fps.

Like most digital cameras, this model comes with a proprietary rechargeable battery.

This SLR has 9 autofocus points. It also includes 3 flash modes (for the on-board flash), 7 exposure modes, and an exposure compensation control that can be set at +/-5 EV. The image stabilization system for this camera is lens-based.

The EOS Rebel T3i measures 5.3 inches wide by 4.1 inches high by 5.9 inches deep, and weighs 29 ounces (1.8 pounds) (with battery, memory card, and strap).
About This Brand

Canon is the market leader in point-and-shoots, with an extensive line of models, which are known as PowerShots. Its compact camera line includes several different series. The A series are budget point-and-shoots while the ELPH series adds more creative features and advanced functions. Its N series provides an even larger number of features including Wi-Fi and photo-sharing. Canon’s D series cameras claim to be waterproof and shockproof. Its SX series are mostly superzooms and come in various sizes and include smaller or larger feature sets. Its high-end series, the S and G lines, include special modes and manual features, such as the ability to shoot RAW files and to focus manually. The EOS Rebel series helped to define budget SLRs.
