Point and shoot cameras are great. I carry one with me most anytime I go somewhere where I think a photo opportunity may arise. They fit in a pocket and are just plain convenient. While they can take good pictures, they just can’t do everything a DSLR can do. If you’re ready to move up from a point and shoot and don’t want to break the bank, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice.
You have a choice of several packages from just the camera body to a variety of included lenses. The price you pay will depend on which package you choose. A body only package sells for around $659.
This camera shoots images at up to 18 megapixel. That’s a lot! It can also shoot 1080p HD video. It may not have all the bells and whistles of Canon’s more expensive models, but it is a great choice for someone just moving to a DSLR. With the holiday shopping season under way, you may just want to add this to your list!
