The EOS Rebel T3, or 1100D, is Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR. Announced in February 2011, it comes no less than two and a half years after its predecessor, the EOS Rebel XS / 1000D; indeed it’s such a long time in the digital camera industry, especially for Canon, that many wondered if the company had abandoned the true budget DSLR market for good.
That’s certainly not the case: the EOS T3 / 1100D manages to hit a respectably low price point, while comfortably undercutting its major rival, the Nikon D3100. As such, while the specification of the latest Canon is solid and boosts most of its predecessor’s numbers, it’s not surprising to find most of the technology has been lifted from previous models.
