Canon's CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers the most pixels in its class. It offers many of the same new technologies to maximize each pixel's light gathering efficiency that were first seen with the professional EOS-1D Mark III model. It's an APS-C size sensor (22.2 x 14.8mm), and there's an effective 1.6x increase in the lens's marked focal length when attached.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The improved DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR's new 3:2 multiple aspect ratio, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provided S2 and S3 image-recording quality are all possible thanks to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With dazzling results, the new DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 12.2 Megapixels at 3.0 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, enhanced Face Detection Live mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral Optimization.
great camera price
Bought this camera in the summer of 2012 and it's a spectaculer camera for its price. i got intrested in photography and after looking at prices and other cameras, i chose the rebel t3. WARNING: THIS IS NOT A CAMERA FOR A PRO! Don't get me wrong, i LOVE this camera and have taken great photos with it. i mostly use it for nature photos and it has given me the quality i need. this is a great camera for the hobbyist, the casual user, and even for the lower end of advanced amateurs. i would not advise it for sports, major/pro photography, or videography. though it misses the quick dials dedicated buttons on non-rebel canons, you get where you can change the settings quickly and without looking away from the veiw finder. it's a great camera if you want to have something to hold onto and to hear that cla-click but you're not quite ready to let go of your point-and-shoot. great camera, but if you're planning on doing pro photography, i'd advise you check out the t4i and t5i if you're going rebel, but if you're fine with the complete D seires, i'd say look at the 7d, 5d, 70d, and 60d as well.

This Camera is small but powerful!
I love this camera so much! It's the first camera that I myself have owned. It works so well and the quality of the photographs that it takes is amazing! I was blown away from how crisp and breathtaking the pictures are. I'm very satisfied with this camera and I HIGHLY recommend this camera to anybody wanting to get a professional camera from a phone or smaller camera. Love it!

Had a hard time giving up my film. Glad i did. The camera is good value for the cost. There was enough to catch my attention and stay with it. I was suprized at the picture quality that "this cheap camera" could put out. I have given up on film and staying with this for a few months. Until i am more relaxed with this camera and upgrade to a better body. This will be passed on to a grandchild so they can start. Do your self a favour if you can afford to and buy some good glass as these can be used when you upgrade your camera body. I am having a lot of fun with this trying the different filters and I even have had no problems using this in -40 degree for extended time (5-6 hr.) The battery lasts a decent amount of time. If you are not sure about pictures i would say to you to buy this over a point and shoot. You can do so much more.
