Canon T3i DSLR Review

The Canon T3i DSLR features a compact size, the power of the DIGIC 4 image processor, 18 megapixels and a 3" LCD screening. Chris Hardwick and Candace Bailey review the $900 DSLR for its official Gadget Pr0n rating.

What You Need To Know

  • The Canon T3i feels light for a DSLR.
  • Canon makes these entry level cameras easy for almost anybody to use, which is definitely the case for the T3i.
  • The DSLR features a lot of shortcut buttons so users won't have to dive down into the menus.
  • There's also live view, but it'll take a while longer to take a picture on that feature than using the viewfinder.
  • The T3i also has a rotating LCD.
  • This DSLR comes with creative filters and HD video, all of which work well.
  • You can apply creative filters like fisheye, black and white and soft focus, but only after you've taken a picture.
  • The video recording looks spectacular and shoots full HD at 30 fps in easily broadcast quality.
  • The pictures look just as terrific: normal light photos are detailed and have accurate colors, as well as great depth of field.
  • The low light photos are also great and the flash is really bright.
  • There might be a little blur but it wasn't a huge problem.


  • $900 for the body and $950 with the lens.

    Why would you buy a t3i for $100 just for a rotating LCD? It seems like Canon is becoming like nintendo and their potrable systems... "Oh hey, if we change one thing everyone will buy it for the same price as their old one!" Doesn't make sense to me, but it is your money...I own a T1i and I really like it, though I am looking forward to getting a mark iv
