Product Description

From the Manufacturer

New Technology for Outstanding Images.
12.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor for high image quality and speed.

Canon’s CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers the most pixels in its class. It offers many of the same new technologies to maximize each pixel’s light gathering efficiency that were first seen with the professional EOS-1D Mark III model. It’s an APS-C size sensor (22.2 x 14.8mm), and there's an effective 1.6x increase in the lens's marked focal length when attached.


12.2 Megapixel APS-C Size CMOS Sensor


DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The improved DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s new 3:2 multiple aspect ratio, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provided S2 and S3 image-recording quality are all possible thanks to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With dazzling results, the new DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 12.2 Megapixels at 3.0 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, enhanced Face Detection Live mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral Optimization.


Excellence from Dawn to Dusk.
ISO 100 – 6400 for shooting from bright to dim light.

With a broad range of ISO settings, the EOS Rebel T3 enables shooting from sunrise to sunset and helps ensure capture of the finest detail. With enhanced high-sensitivity optimization, subjects can be captured clearly and easily at high shutter speeds without flash, with minimized blur and noise. In bright scenes, especially long exposures in daylight, optimal exposure can be achieved with a fully open wide-diameter lens, no dark filter needed.


High Definition Made Easy.
Improved EOS HD Movie mode with expanded recording [HD: 30p (29.97) / 25p], and with in-camera video editing options.

The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s expanded repertoire of technologies includes shooting video in brilliantly clear, exactingly sharp high definition for playback on your HDTV! Shooting at 1280 x 720 at 30 (29.97) or 25 frames per second, HD video can be taken immediately through the EOS Rebel T3 camera’s intuitive operation and layout. Parameters for white balance and picture style are already set — just grab and go!

Incredible AutoFocus.
High speed, reliable 9-point AF system utilizing a high precision, f/5.6 cross-type center point.

The EOS Rebel T3 has a high-precision, 9-point AF system utilizing a high-precision, f/5.6 cross-type center point. The 9-point AF system uses both normal and high-precision focus depending on the aperture and available light. The 9 focus points can be chosen automatically or manually selected.


9-point AF


Accurate Metering for Perfect Exposure.
Enhanced metering with a 63-zone, Dual-layer metering system for accurate metering between exposures.

The EOS Rebel T3 features Canon’s newest Dual-layer sensor, with 63 zones. By measuring not only the amount of light, but also taking into account color and luminosity, this new system delivers a very high level of accuracy for better results every time. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS Rebel T3 gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as sports on a cloudy day, or indoor holiday scenes.


Metering zones


Speedy, Precise Operation.
3.0 fps continuous shooting up to approximately 3 JPEGs or approximately 2 RAW.

The EOS Rebel T3 operates with such effortless speed that operation is nothing short of intuitive. With instant startup times, speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS Rebel T3 is one of the fastest cameras available today. It can shoot up to 3.0 fps (frames per second), in bursts of up to approximately 3 JPEGs or 2 RAW files, so you won’t miss a shot.


3.0 fps Continuous Shooting


See the Image on a Large LCD with Live View Function.
2.7-inch wide TFT LCD monitor (230,000 dots) with Live View function for improved viewing.

The EOS Rebel T3 has a huge, bright 2.7-inch TFT (thin film transistor) LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels and a viewing angle of 170°. It’s perfect for Live View composition or viewing camera settings like AF, ISO, Metering, AF Point selection and flash options. And the maximum brightness of the EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s LCD monitor is about 30% greater than its predecessor, which is a big benefit when you’re using the camera in bright sunlight.

Live View Function
Live View Function enables you to view your subjects directly on the huge 2.7-inch LCD monitor. It’s easy to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focus. And now, there are two ways to use Autofocus along with Live View Function in the EOS Rebel T3. You can even choose a grid overlay, perfect for keeping straight lines in your subject straight in your pictures. In the studio, Live View Function can be used remotely via a computer through the EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s USB connection.


Make Your Images As You See Them.
Express your creativity with ease using advanced imaging features like the new Basic+ function, Quick Setting function and Creative Auto.

Basic+ is a new creative imaging feature that makes it easy to create the image effects you want. It can be set with the Quick Control screen in Basic Zone modes. Basic+ provides two options:

Shoot by ambience selection:
Based on the Picture Style and its parameters (sharpness, contrast, saturation, and color tone), the exposure compensation and white balance correction are adjusted to attain the selected ambience. You can also select the strength of the ambience effect.

Shoot by lighting or scene type:
Although the actual parameter set is the white balance, the settings are expressed in more understandable terms.

The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s Quick Control screen gives you instant access to the most common settings, all in one place! It’s a great way to quickly confirm or change settings while you’re shooting. The Quick Control screen is particularly useful when you’re shooting from a tripod or monopod, with the camera at eye level, because it eliminates the need to view the LCD data panel on top of the camera while changing settings.

For beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons, the EOS Rebel T3 offers Creative Auto mode. While basic settings are based on full automatic operation, shooting guides on the LCD screen enable you to make corrections based on simple to follow guidelines. In essence, with Creative Auto mode, you can learn about photography while taking stunning photographs.


Photography Made Truly Easy.
New Feature Guide offers short descriptions of each function and Quick Control screen for easy operation.

The Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR demystifies great photography by including an in-camera Feature Guide. Appearing on the camera’s LCD, the Feature Guide displays a simple description or advice for the respective function. It is displayed in each shooting mode, during Mode Dial operations, and for Quick Control screen functions (during normal shooting, Live View shooting, movie shooting, and playback). The Feature Guide appears automatically during Mode Dial operations and when a function is selected on the Quick Control screen.


Speedy, Wireless Image Capture and Transmission.
Compatibility with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

The EOS Rebel T3 uses popular SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS Rebel T3 DSLR’s compact and lightweight body design.

Additionally, the EOS Rebel T3 is compatible with Eye-Fi* SD cards, which are outfitted with a Wi-Fi transmitter (IEEE 802.11b/g) and internal antenna for wireless, high-speed transfer of images. With an Eye-Fi card installed, the EOS Rebel T3 can display the Eye-Fi’s connection status and error notes with ease, for fully functional wireless uploading of images directly from the camera.

*Canon cameras are not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card functions, including wireless transfer. In case of an issue with the Eye-Fi card, please consult with the card manufacturer. The use of Eye-Fi cards may not be available outside the United States and Canada; please contact the card manufacturer for territory availability.


Shooting Made Easy
Compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses.

EF & EF-S Lenses
The EOS Rebel T3 is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as Aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L Series lenses, and Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer technology are featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Through Canon lenses, photographers can truly maximize the quality and liberating performance of the EOS Rebel T3.

Totally satisfied with my purchase. The camera arrived by mail in 3 days; that has to be a record. $510 b4 tax was the best price I could find for a new T3 with the lens provided and the brown is a welcomed change from the traditional black. Kudos Amazon!

I used to believe, that it didn't matter what you had, if you had vision your photos would turn out ok. WRONG... I never had any worthwhile photos from my point and shoot BUT..... Ever since I have had this camera, I have been blown away with the quality of the photos. I am very happy with this camera. If you are new to using an SLR camera like me, try pairing it up with the book, Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D for DUMMIES....

I bought this camera for a young man we have staying here with us for five months, who's from Brazil. And it's an AMAZING camera....truly crisp and clear pictures, plus love the fact that it also tapes. The ONE thing I do find that's a potential problem is the location of the battery and memory card...on the BOTTOM of the camera.....because if a battery grip is attached, that makes it VERY difficult to access those....and also, if the camera is on a tripod and you need to change a battery or switch out the card, it's also VERY difficult.
To try and compensate for that, I bought a memory card with 128 Gigs, I think....about 30 HOURS of video, so I don't really see the Memory Card part as being a problem due to me purchasing such a large capacity memory card...and I HAVE ordered a battery grip, which I'm STILL waiting on....so that should help eliminate the changing of battery from the BOTTOM.
Apart from that, a GREAT camera for the price and it truly IS one of the best camera's in this price range that I've seen, regarding ease of use, clarity and amazingly clear photos!
