I am able to purchase either one but do not know wether to start with the T3i or the T3. I am somewhat able to use a digital camera, but would be beginner on SLR's

What would be the best choice to make for a starter?

thanks!!!

If the choice is between the T3 and T3i.

Get the T3i. It's the better camera.

How tight is money? The T3i is better, but if you could get the T3 and an extra lens I think it'd be better.

if the t3 was WAY cheaper, maybe get it, but the t3i is a much better camera...

I used the T3 for a long time, it lacks a lot of features but you can take amazing photos with it. I recently upgraded from the t3 to the t4i and its justifiable to me as the t4i has a ton of features missing in the t3. That being said I loved my t3 when I used it, its pretty bare bones but if you just want to take awesome photos then it would be ok for that, but there are some short comings. Forget about sports shooting with the t3 as the burst rate is horrendous but for still photography it would be ok.

I don't like snapsort some of its cons on dslrs are iffy. they claim that the t4i has a slow continuous shooting rate but yet its at 5fps and the t3i is at 3.7fps. I don't call that a con I call that an improvement and a con that the body doesn't have image stabilization, none of the budget end Canon dslr's have that and is relied on the lenses. Oh and the noise at low ISO, I didn't notice any at low ISO's in fact It does an excellent job at it.

Yeah... I t

Yeah for reviews...
I gave up on the forum though, the amount of *******s that bash you just because they don't like how you took your photo for X reason.

Dper: Oh it's underexposed
Me: Yes it is on purpose
Dper: learn to expose n00b

Dper: Centered photo looks like passport photo
Me: Yes I centered and broke the rule of thirds on purpose
Dper: N00b.

But I digress, till I see you posting your photos, you shall not pass!!!

Yeah I don't post photos much on forums, I just post them on flickr and such and it seems people like my photos some times so who cares what some guy on a forum thinks. The dedicated photography forums are the worst though, real camera snobs there, if you don't have a professional DSLR you're nothing lol.

Yeah obviously I doesn't bother me, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some people on dpreview are just ultra snobs, "oh teh noes you don't have 10 strobes, you lighting is unbalanced".

That aside, this is neowin!!!!!! ( Think of it in a 300 sorta voice), so share your stuff!
