I am guilty of not knowing all its features, but auto mode with external flash pointing at the ceiling gives me excellent indoor pictures. For some outdoor pictures I also use flash to reduce shades. So the value for me is in the quality and variety of excellent pictures I can take without having to dig into too many manual settings. I am not a pro and do not want to become one, but now I get pictures that look pro quality and that's all folks...
The thing with cameras is that most people will never use a third of the features. I'm guilty of it, I was foaming at the mouth over some of the t4i deals but after doing the research it was just overkill for me personally. I handled the t3 and t4s along with the I versions and the t3 had a feel that I liked best. Not to say it is the best of the bunch just my personal preference. To be honest I liked the Nikon d3100 feel too but I have a lot of canon gear already so the choice was easy. 12.2 Meg's does the job for me, I'm actually upgrading from my old 6mp rebel that I've had for about 10 years now.
You have no idea how many sder bought 5d mark II. I think only 1/3 of them really know how to take a good photo with it. Overkill is not unusual here. If I can afford it, why not? that's the rational in SD
Guilty. I went from xti to 60D to 5D mark III. Bet I have taken 200 pictures on my 5D that was purchased months ago.
I am looking for a DSLR but I am confused whether to go or not for this.
This is a great DSLR to start with or to learn with. I am slowly moving from pentax which I love to canon cause I don't love the cost of the pentax lens! I got in on the sears deal on this last summer. I will say that the lens are what will make you love a DSLR. I got this one to learn the canon menus while building my collection of canon lens. So far I am happy with it.
The pics clearly show superiority of DSLR, the bird is in excellent focus despite window grill and branches. The other picture could use better focus on the face of the dog, but still a very good pic.
the camera did just what I made it to do with the puppy.
The bird was just as you stated!
both were shot in jpeg. so the camera did all the processing, the dog is directly off the camera. no touch up afterwards there is a green tint on the picture to the right of the dog that is just noticeable. but otherwise I think the camera did a great job with the tricky lighting. the bird I think was touch up with auto balance.
I pulled the trigger on this. I bought the telephoto lens with IS, though, so my total was $454. I've been tracking this deal for a few days now, and the IS telephoto went down to $199, so I had to pounce.
I bought 1 set of Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens for $380 in March. Now, adding another lens + camera bag + Memory + Filter for only $40 more. Great deal. I am in for 1 for my wife.
