Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP Review – Product Specifications, Pros and Cons
Canon has created the model EOS Rebel T3 with 12.2 MP to replace the former model EOS Rebel XS. Rebel T3 is available on Amazon for $399.00, a price that, needless to say, is somewhat big in comparison to other devices on the market. It was, therefore, our duty to test the product and determine whether Canon EOS Rebel T3 is worth the price or not.
As soon as we lay our hands on the digital camera, it became clear that Canon has made a huge compromise in terms of components’ quality. The body of the digital camera is made out of recycled plastic which gives it a rather cheap look. It is also heavier than many other cameras in its range, weighing 1.1 pounds and measuring 5.1 x 3.1 x 3.9 inches. The rubberized grip is the only aspect that we’ve liked because it makes the camera easier to carry around; however, it is also the main reason why the camera looks cheap.
- The 12.2 MP CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor.
- Increased sensitivity range
- Long battery life.
- Cheap aspect.
- Too expensive for the features it offers.
The Rebel T3 has been provided with a 12.2 MP CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 4 Image Processor that enable users to take high-quality pictures. Canon cameras, in fact, are renowned for the wonderful images they reproduce, so we were not at all surprised to see that the Rebel T3 lives up to the manufacturer’s reputation. The 2.7” fixed LCD screen does not give users too many options when it comes to choosing their camera shooting positions as the display cannot be tilted.
The sensitivity range has been greatly improved compared to Rebel XS. The latter featured a light sensitivity of up to 1,600, whereas the ISO range of Rebel T3 expands from 100 to 6400. Thanks to the increased light sensitivity, the image noise is barely perceptible in pictures, even if the flash is not used. Moreover, the photos we have taken looked just as good in early morning sun as they did during dawn or at night.
We were very much impressed by the battery life of Canon EOS Rebel T3. Unlike other devices pertaining to the same category, the Rebel T3 takes a lot more effort to run out of battery. The device can take up to 700 shots without running out of “juice”, whereas the majority of the cameras stop after approximately 500 shots.
All in all, Canon EOS Rebel T3 has been provided with great components, which enable users to take great photos. Yet, its shape and look are still too basic to be worth $399.00.
