New Canon EOS Rebel T3i and T3 Announced
You may have seen the posts on the internet already, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and T3 are coming to a store near you. It has been exactly a year since the Canon EOS Rebel T2i impressed the entry level DSLR market and it looks like the magic will appear again. As you noticed in the screen grab from the Canon USA website, the new T3i has an articulating screen just like the Canon EOS 60D. Also, like the 60D it has remote flash control, Full HD video capture and finally manual audio control over video. So, in a nutshell it is a baby 60D for a sub-$1000 entry level DSLR price! Amazing!
The Canon EOS T3 is projected as the Canon EOS Rebel XS replacement. It is bargain priced with a 12 megapixel sensor and the addition of 720p HD video. Consider it a slightly higher megapixel Rebel XS with 720p video. Not too shabby considering it is the basement entry level DSLR out there for Canon.
As expected, keep updated on my PhotoBlog for my upcoming review of the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and all of its wonderful features. See you all soon!
