This is a comprehensive user's manual for Canon's successor to the Rebel T2i/EOS 550D. It is clearly illustrated in colour with practical advice, tips and professional guidance. It also provides readers with a step-by-step guide to the camera's basic and advanced functions. Canon's Rebel T3i/EOS 600D is the successor to the entry level Rebel T2i/EOS 550D, yet combines some of the sophisticated features of the higher-end EOS 60D and EOS 7D models in an easy-to-use package. For point-and-shoot camera users stepping-up to a DSLR the Rebel T3i/EOS 600D's Scene Intelligent Auto mode offers scene analysis and optimized settings. It also offers a range of creative filters including grainy black and white, soft focus, toy camera and miniature effect. The picture resolution matches that of the 60D and 7D and the new camera also offers Full HD 1080p video recording, although a lower frames per second (fps) rate of 3.7fps (the 60D attains 5.3fps; the 7D 8fps). The vari-angle 3-inch LCD screen also rotates, making it convenient when shooting above head height or at an awkward angle, when using Live. This complete illustrated guide to the Canon Rebel T3i/EOS 600D will fully equip its readers to master this system's exciting features and potential.
