The canon rebel t3 is a truly great buy for the money. If you are looking to get into DSLR photography but are intimidated by the big cameras with lots of buttons the t3 will help you get comfortable with DSLR's. For the money this camera does great and the images provided are truly fantastic. For the money I believe that the camera is the best in it's class. The video function is excellent for capturing sports and clips of kids. If you are looking for a simple yet cheap camera in the DSLR range then this is the one for you.
Pros: Excellent Image Quality, Simple Controls/Menu, Sharp Tone/Color, Great Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time, Easy Computer Connectivity, Beautiful Colors/Contrast, Good Low-Light Performance, good for the money
Cons: Not Good for Video
