Hey folks!

Canon has announced t3i/600D. Here's the link to a review

http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/news/Canons_EOS_600D_DSLR_aims_to_hook...

2.66 GHz 8-core, ATI Radeon HD 4870,
FCS 3, AJA Kona Lhi



"The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally

Thanks for the info.

Hmmm, first the 60D with a vari-angle screen, now the T3i.
Will we see a new 7D with such screen soon?

If it has manual audio control (like 60d) then this might be my next camera!!

I was hoping for more professional type features to be added to camera.

At the price point? You're kidding right.

Alberto & Richard,
Let me expand my thought. When the T2i was announced it sent shockwaves of excitement out. When I went to Amazon to pre-order it, Amazon said the waiting list was so big it would be delivered two months after it was released. There was a dramatic difference between the T1i and the T2i. If I had a T1i I would would get rid of it and buy a T2i with no hesitation. As I stated earlier...the T2i created an extreme amount of buzz and excitement. I was lucky enough to find a local camera store that had a few left in stock the day it came out. I have really loved the T2i and feel it was a great purchase.
When I read the article above about the T3i and how Cannon was trying to capture a bigger audience such as the "family User" I thought that that was great. Then I read the new features in the article: Scene Intelligent Auto, Picture Style Auto mode, Fish-Eye Effect and creative filters such as b&W, Snapshot...Sorry, but I didn't get excited about those new features. The Digital Zoom was a cool addition that can come in handy in a pinch. I already own a T2i, I felt like the T3i didn't have enough oomph to get me to get rid of my T2i to purchase a T3i. I'm sure there are more new features then I read about in the article above that I will learn about as more information come out about the camera. But for now...I'm happy with my T2i and I'll probably trade it in for a T4i. That is what I was trying to say.

After I went back to look at the article again to look up the features I realized I missed the paragraph above all of those links. I did not realize that they added a flip-out screen. I think that is a cool addition as well. During the summer I was hiking in the middle of nowhere with my T2i and a slider. I did a shoot with the camera super low to the ground and the sun made it really hard to see the screen. I set everything up and then did my camera moves with out seeing the screen. My battery died and I didn't know it. this flip out screen would have fixed that problem from happening.

That's my 2 cents...or maybe 0 cents depending on how you look at it.
