We at OSM, have been covering cameras quite extensively especially since CES 2011 so it’s only natural that we start looking at DSLRs too right? With that in mind, let’s have a look at a couple of new ones from Canon or if you are looking for a point and shoot device, they have also just given the news of the PowerShot range.
We are all aware that Canon thrive in the camera and DSLR market so it’s no surprise to see them dipping into it with a couple of updated models. The new models are the Rebel T3 (1100D) and the T3i (600D).
The Rebel T3 has a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 63-zone dual-layer meter system and a DIGIC 4 imaging processor. The device will be shipping at the end of March setting you back $599.99, it will also come with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II zoom lens to get you started.
As for the T3i, it has an 18 megapixel CMOS sensor with the same DIGIC 4 imaging processor. It also has a pop-up flash along with much, much more. Engadget’s Darren Murph says that this will start shipping at the end of March as well and it will set you back $799 for the body only. If you want the lens too then you are looking at $899. Perhaps one of its cooler features is the pull-out swivel LCD that you can see below.
Over at Crunchgear, their author Devin Coldeway is warning that these devices aren’t that much of a step up so is urging the average consumer to perhaps go with the T2i, who knows with the release of the new ones they may reduce its price! If this isn’t enough for you, then head over and read the entire press release for the new Canon DSLRs by clicking here.
We would like you to draw your own conclusion so have a look at the video at the bottom of the article, it’s a review of the T2i. Currently, there aren’t any videos of the T3i so it might be worth holding back till March so you can do a full comparison between the two.
Will you go with one of the new T3/T3i or opt for the T2i? Let us know in the comments section below.
