    As it stands, the Canon T3i is the flagship Rebel, with the T3 and T2i beneath it in features. Its still image quality is among the best in its price range, and its video modes are quite complete, offering excellent quality, provided you can handle shooting video more carefully than you would with a digicam or camcorder.


  • For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up.

    We definitely can recommend the T3i for its video quality, solid handling, access to the EOS EF lens library, and image quality. There are some issues with menu organization, slow live view autofocus, and the quality of the 18-135mm kit lens, but these don't necessarily outweigh the positives of shooting with the T3i.

    - All in all, while not up to the performance of top-level zooms, it does pretty well for a kit lens on a 12-megapixel sensor, and the added image stabilization will come in handy for low-light shooting.
    - Resolution and detail were high, though with some softening in the corners from the lens.


  • It doesn't stand out for its feature set or design, but the Canon EOS Rebel XSi delivers on performance and photo quality.

    - Canon also claims the XSi is the fastest firing Rebel; it can capture up to 3.5 frames per second in a burst of up to 45 images as JPEGs, or six images as RAW files.
    - The XSi ups the resolution to 12.2 megapixels and includes improved autofocus, live view, an enlarged 3-inch LCD screen, and an optical image stabilized kit lens.
    - The improvement in the viewfinder places the XSi closer to Canon's higher-end EOS 40d.
