Basic+ is a new creative imaging feature that makes it easy to create the image effects you want. It can be set with the Quick Control screen in Basic Zone modes. Basic+ provides two options:
Shoot by ambience selection:
Based on the Picture Style and its parameters (sharpness, contrast, saturation, and color tone), the exposure compensation and white balance correction are adjusted to attain the selected ambience. You can also select the strength of the ambience effect.
Shoot by lighting or scene type:
Although the actual parameter set is the white balance, the settings are expressed in more understandable terms.
The EOS Rebel T3 DSLR's Quick Control screen gives you instant access to the most common settings, all in one place! It's a great way to quickly confirm or change settings while you're shooting. The Quick Control screen is particularly useful when you're shooting from a tripod or monopod, with the camera at eye level, because it eliminates the need to view the LCD data panel on top of the camera while changing settings.
For beginners looking to expand their photographic horizons, the EOS Rebel T3 offers Creative Auto mode. While basic settings are based on full automatic operation, shooting guides on the LCD screen enable you to make corrections based on simple to follow guidelines. In essence, with Creative Auto mode, you can learn about photography while taking stunning photographs.
Received this as a Christmas Gift to replace my precious Rebel Film Camera. Still have that as well. The DSLR T3 is compatible and this is what I liked since having multiple lenses. This was an important feature. The one feature I wish this camera would have is a the ability to hold a second battery similar to the T3i. Other than this, it is a remarkable camera.
Picuture quality is excellent with 12.2 MP. I typically shoot landscape photography as a hobby. Never dissapointed. I have shot wildlife as well and have gotten the clarity I wanted.
This is a great starter DSLR for the hobby / enthusiast. I don't think I'll trade it in, but will definiately look at the Mark 5 in the future. I truly like the adability with multiple lenses. This is what makes Canon a remarkable product!
