The Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR Camera W/EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens gives you all you need to start taking great pictures right out of the box. Charge the included battery pack, put in an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card and start shooting! The 18-135mm lens is equivalent to 29-216mm in 35mm format, so you get a wide range, from real wide angle to a true telephoto focal length and high-quality optics. When you're ready to add another lens, it's great to know that the T3i is compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
The T3i captures beautiful, high resolution JPEG, RAW, and RAW+JPEG images, using an 18MP CMOS (APS-C) sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor. It also records dazzling full HD video at 1920 x 1080 at 30/24/25fps. The wide range of compatible lenses, manual exposure control, and the camera's dedicated live view give you the flexibility you need to create spectacular HD movies.
The T3i has a vari-angle 3" Clear View LCD monitor that flips out and is adjustable at a variety of angles for shooting and reviewing your photos and videos, as well as an eye-level viewfinder for more precise composition of shots.
Canon's 63-zone dual-layer sensor works with the 9-point AF system for superb, accurate exposures, including low-light situations. The T3i also features an in-camera flash and the option to connect a flash--it's Speedlite-compatible. The 100-6400 ISO rating is expandable up to an amazing 12,800. Using this setting with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer can produce incredible low light shots.
The T3i also features a number of modes that allow you to simplify your shooting experience. Intelligent Auto mode, for example, takes the guesswork out of shooting by automatically setting 5 of the camera's technologies to create the optimum image. Other helpful shooting controls like Basic+ provides the user with 2 options for making creative photos like a pro. The ambience selection adjusts exposure and white balance to give your images a unique look and feel.
