Good ergonomics; varied button-shapes make it easy to operate by feel, Solid build for a plastic-bodied camera, Generally good image quality for its class, Reasonably wide sensitivity range for an entry-level model, Excellent detail from RAW files.
Responsive, good quality 12.2-megapixel DSLR, 720p HD Videos at 30 fps, 3fps burst mode.
Loads of advanced features.
Quick and easy access to many settings, Live View and HD video recording (albeit at 720p only), Supplied with decent RAW and remote control software.
Control dial is very stiff, and not ideally angled for comfort, Flash button is easy to miss, since it lacks a screen-printed label, New viewfinder has slightly less magnification, much narrower diopter adjustment range.
No front AF Assist lamp (uses built-in flash), Images not super sharp, Awkward control placement.
A nothing-but-the-basics feature set and claustrophobic viewfinder leave the camera an uninspiring shooter.
Sloppy grip, Small LCD.
Continuous shooting buffer small. Slows down for RAW, Relatively small 2.7in screen, Weaker popup flash than many rivals.

Although it occupies the entry-level position in Canon's SLR lineup, the Rebel T3 has a fairly rich feature set, and offers a significant step forwards from the earlier Rebel XS. Handling is good, with a comfortable grip, although those with larger...-
