Canon EOS Rebel T3i & EOS Rebel T3
Plus two new speedlites and an EF-S lens
Putting big imaging power in a small body, the new EOS Rebel T3 DSLR
features a 12.2-megapixel Canon CMOS image sensor, a proprietary DIGIC
4 Imaging Processor, a 9-point Autofocus system and a 63-zone
dual-layer metering system. With individual pixels measuring roughly
10x larger than a pixel from a point-and-shoot camera sensor, the Rebel
T3 is able to absorb more light with less noise, making it ideal for
capturing high-quality images in dimly lit situations. The increased
efficiencies in gathering light also make the camera better suited to
freeze fast-moving objects such as capturing images of children at play
at speeds up to 3-frames per second. Compatible with SD, SDHC or new
extended capacity SDXC memory cards, the Rebel T3 also shoots 1280x720
HD movies for amazing image quality for both stills and video. The
Canon Rebel T3 features an ISO range from 100-6400 for capturing
beautiful images in various light settings while also including a
built-in pop-up flash. Designed for easy operation through the
camera’s mode dial, users can go from taking great still images to
great video quickly and easily, with simple to understand icons and
Pricing and Availability
The Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR camera is scheduled to be delivered to U.S. dealers at the end of March, and will be offered in a kit with Canon’s new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II zoom lens at an estimated retail price of $599.99.
New Kit Lenses
Along with these DSLR cameras, Canon is also introducing a new kit lens, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II zoom lens, the standard kit lens for both the Rebel T3i kit configuration and the Rebel T3 kit configuration.
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II zoom lens features the wide-angle to mid-range zoom flexibility with the advantage of Canon’s optical lens-shift image stabilization system that yields up to a full four stops of image-shake correction. The version II of this lens includes new IS algorithms to distinguish between normal photographing and when the camera is panning to automatically provide the optimal level of image-shake correction.
New Canon Speedlite 320EX and Canon Speedlite 270EX II
The new Canon Speedlite 320EX is designed to provide DSLR users with a lightweight and versatile external flash solution. Along with the new Speedlite 320EX regular flash functions, it includes a built-in LED continuous light option that is capable of providing full-time illumination for short distances when shooting video on a DSLR or PowerShot digital camera. Ideally paired with the new EOS Rebel T3i, the new Speedlite 320EX enables bounce flash shooting with six positions including ceiling bounce for vertical shooting, and rear-wall bounce. The Speedlite 320EX also includes a new remote firing function and can remote fire any EOS DSLR camera that has a built-in wireless remote control function or Integrated Speedlite Transmitter such as the new Rebel T3i, EOS 60D, or EOS 7D DSLRs. The new Speedlite 320EX provides photographers with all the great lighting options Speedlites are known for with the added capability to shoot HD video with a full-time LED light option.
