The Difference Between the Canon EOS Rebel T3 vs. the T3i.

Both the Canon EOS Rebel T3 and the T3i were released to the public to buy in March, 2011. The T3i was meant to appeal to the entry level photographer who wanted a camera with more quality features than the T3i’s predecessor the T2i, but didn’t want to spend the money for the 60D. However, The T3 (approximately $530) is not just a cheaper version of the T3i (approximately $830), with the same frame and a few less features. Don’t let the similar name trick you. There is a big difference between the two models. As opposed to the higher end T3i, the T3 was meant to replace the lower end of the Canon DSLR product line which consisted of both the Canon XS and the T1i.
With that in mind, the T3 is still a great camera for entry level photographers. You still get vivid photos and many great features for a beginning user. Unless you’re a more experienced photographer, you probably won’t be worried about alot of the features that separate the T3 from the T3i.
What are some of the differences between the T3 and the T3i? One of the major differences between the two is that the video recording for the T3i is recorded at 1080 HD as opposed to the 720 HD that is recorded by the T3. Also, the T3i shoots pictures with an impressive 18 megapixels, a significant difference when compared to the 12 megapixels of the T3. Another difference is the shutter speed, which is quicker, shooting 3.7 frames per second (fps) instead of 3 fps. The T3i also includes a 3 inch swivel LCD screen with higher quality resolution.
Despite those significant differences between the two models, the T3’s 12.2 megapixels is still a vast improvement from the previous XS model in both size and quality. It’s important to realize that the T3 was never made to be close to the T3i, but was constructed to replace the lower models. Because it’s cheap, canon assumes that the photographers are relatively new. Because of this Canon has made it extremely easy for even the newest photographer to learn and use, making it ideal for begginning photographers who aren’t quite as technical in their photography skill level or as knowledgeable.

T2I’s Zone Modes

For photographers who have a fair amount of experience shooting pictures, creative zone modes allow you a little bit more freedom to be creative with your shots. The Canon EOS Rebel T2i has several different Creative Zone modes. These modes are located on the Mode Dial button which is the large dial located on the top of the camera next to the hot shoe (the mechanism that attaches to the flash). To change the modes which are indicated by the letters: P, Tv, M, Av, and A-DEP, all you need to do is twist the dial to the mode that you would like to use.
The letter P on the creative mode dial stands for Program. The Canon T2i’s program mode allows the user to select some basic exposure settings with the ability to manually override the camera’s choice and refine pictures to the user’s liking.
The Tv mode stands for Time Value. This feature allows the user to choose its shutter priority. You also have control over all of the exposure variables including exposure compensation. The user is able to select a specific shutter speed which is ideal for that specific photographer’s situation, in order to eliminate blur effects when shooting a particular photo. The T2i will automatically choose the f/stop.
The M mode stands for Manual. The Manual mode gives you complete control of the shutter speed and lens aperture. If the ISO sensitivity specifically indicates that it’s manual, then the exposure is completely manual. If the ISO sensitivity indicates that it’s auto, then the camera changes to receive a metered exposure with the specific shutter speed and aperture that the photographer has chosen. This mode is primarily used for creative effects. However, it is also used for incompatible flash units with the Canon T2i.
The AV mode, or Aperture Value, chooses the correct shutter speed for you. This mode is used when you want to use a specific lens opening to control the sharpness of the image in focus.
The A-DEP or Automatic depth-of-field mode, allows you to select the best f/stop in order to get optimal depth-of-field for subjects in your frame. The mode will auto focus and select the shutter speed for you. By using the nine different auto focus zones, it is able to accurately measure the distance to the subjects. It is ideal for large groups of people or any picture that needs focus at varying distances.
