Canon has unveiled the Rebel T3 (EOS 1100D) entry-level DSLR. Built around a 12MP CMOS sensor and the latest Digic 4 processor, the new baby-Rebel is also capable of 720p HD movie recording. It gains the 9-point AF sensor previously used in more expensive models and the iFCL color-sensitive metering sensor first seen in the EOS 7D. It also gains the Basic+ non-technical interface that allows creative control without specialist photography knowledge. The camera will be sold either with the revised, version II 18-55mm IS lens or an updated Mark III non-stabilized version.

Take the first step
Step up to DSLR image quality with a 12-megapixel APS-C-sized sensor. A 14-bit DIGIC 4 image processor provides up to 3.2fps continuous shooting and images that are packed with detail and tonal range.
Intuitive, on-screen feature guide
The EOS 1100D’s Feature Guide provides descriptions of many of the camera’s functions, as well as advice on how to use them in your own photography.
Easy to use Scene modes and Basic+
Theme-based Scene modes automatically pick the most suitable exposure, focus and drive-mode settings for the subject being photographed, while Creative Auto mode portrays adjustable functions in an easy to understand way. With Canon’s Basic + technology, the look and feel of these basic auto modes can be fine-tuned according to ambience and lighting type.
HD EOS Movie mode
Shoot stunning HD video at 25 or 30fps, with automatic exposure control leaving you free to concentrate on the action. Footage can be edited on your PC or Mac, or played directly on an HD TV via the camera’s HDMI connection.
ISO 100-6400 sensitivity
Low-light shooting without flash is possible thanks to the EOS 1100D’s ISO 100-6400 sensitivity range. The camera’s 14-bit DIGIC 4 processor helps to control noise and maintain image quality.
Wide-area 9-point AF system
The EOS 1100D focuses quickly and accurately on static and moving subjects, thanks to nine AF points, spread out across the frame. A central cross-type AF point is sensitive to both horizontal and vertical lines.
63-zone iFCL exposure metering
Advanced iFCL exposure metering dissects a scene into 63-zones before analyzing it to find the perfect combination of shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
6.8cm (2.7”), 230,000-dot LCD screen
Compose and review images on a large 230,000-dot LCD screen, which also provides access to the camera’s menu system and Quick Control Screen.
Use with all EF and EF-S lenses
