canon rebel t3i camera

Introduction

In February 2011, Canon released a new version of its Ti-series cameras called T3i. In some parts of the world, this camera uses the model number Canon 600D (or EOS Kiss X5 in Japan). All these versions of the camera are identical.

The Rebel series of cameras are Canon's entry-level SLR. This means these cameras contain professional features for manually adjusting exposure, as well as automatic features which essentially turn this camera into a point-and-shoot.

The Canon Rebel T3i sports many advanced features that include allowing the user to shoot both photos and video. This tutorial will center generally on shooting photos, with a brief primer on its video features.

Some basic specifications of the T3i

Here are a few of the specifications of the Canon T3i:

  • An 18 megapixel CMOS sensor capable of shooting photos at 5184x3456 pixels.
  • Photographing both RAW and jpeg images simultaneously.
  • Capturing full HD video (1920x1080 at 30p/25p/24p), or standard HD video (1280x720 at 60p/50p.)
  • A built-in flash.
  • A flip-out LCD viewfinder screen.
  • Both automatic as well as professional modes for controlling exposure.
