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.
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.
