Canon EOS Rebel T3i Video Preview

It is no coincidence that today's delivery of the new Canon EOS Rebel T3i from my friends at North Tampa Photography marks the identical delivery date of the Canon EOS Rebel T2i a year ago on February 25th. A year makes a big difference. Introducing the top of the line Canon Rebel series HD DSLR, the T3i/600D. I quickly snapped some iPhone 4 pictures and captured some iPhone 4 video to quickly post to my waiting ChadSorianoPhotoBlog fans.

The most obvious feature to the top of the line Rebel is the articulation screen. At first exclusive to the Canon HD DSLR 60D, the very useful multi-angle LCD gives the small form factor Rebel a great feature.

In addition to the articulating Hi-Res LCD, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i has remote flash control like the 60D and the 7D. On top of that, you also get 1080p fully manual video capture and fully manual audio control. Unbelievable!

I edited the iPhone 4 video of the new Canon EOS Rebel T3i with Adobe Premiere Elements 9. I used Quicktime at best quality to compress a 160mb h264 video file.
Stay updated by becoming a Fan on my Facebook page and following me on Twitter for the upcoming review of the new Canon EOS Rebel T3i on ChadSorianoPhotoBlog.

UPDATE: My Canon EOS Rebel T3i Verdict and Video Review is complete.


  1. Nice! First actual T3i post I've seen. I'm looking forward to your review.

  2. Thank you for the compliment!
    I am also looking forward giving this tremendous value of a camera the full picture and video review.
    Stay tuned!

  3. Amazing! It's like a mini-60D. Wait, was that the sound of a thousand 7D owners jumping off a bridge?

  4. Amazing! Thank you for your extensive blog post/review. Do you know if this camera is Mac compatible? I have a macbook & an imac where i do all my work.

    If so, this is definitely in my "shopping cart" :D

  5. Hi Karina,

    You are in luck! The video format and the camera "RAW" file is native to the built in and free programs to any Intel-based Mac computer. The Canon video format is Apple Quicktime h264 codec and it loves iMovie'09 and iMovie'11. You might want to have a software update to iPhoto to get the latest camera "RAW" info of the T3i. I personally use iMovie'09 and Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 to edit all my videos and the finished product quality is amazing to say the least!
    Good Luck!
