    I just picked up a t3i with the kit lens, 50mm prime and telephoto lens for 350.

    Hi. I was just about to sell my Rebel T3i but you’ve changed my mind in five minutes. Thank you. Why did I want to sell it? Because the video doesn’t have auto-focus and I find that it’s difficult to focus on yourself if you’re trying to record yourself. If that makes any sense haha. Any tips for that?? Thank you in advance.

    im looking at a canon rebel t3i that's 12 years old comes with two lenses. Im new to photography and wandering if this one would be to old and is $350 a good deal

    This was my first ILC camera back in 2015. I bought it from a guy who got started shooting with it, then moved up the chain and started doing pro work.
    After it helped fuel my passion for three years, I upgraded, and sold it on to a third beginner friend of ours who's just getting into photography.
    If cameras were judged by their ability to kindle a lifelong passion, this one would be an all-star 🙂

    These days i use a Canon 5D mkIII but 9 years ago I purchased the Canon 600D (UK) and it was the best camera i ever bought and that still stands today, it is an amazing little camera, its been loaded up with magic lantern when that first hit the web and has been updated ever since, couple with the nifty 50 1.8 is amazing and the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens for my wildlide photography and also the Sigma 150mm Macro lens which i used for movies of insects, it also house a mic jack.. but the articulated screen was a game changer and to get me even closer to the wildife was something that was ever spoke about regarding this camera and it worked amazingly well.. was the 3x Zoom feature, try searching you tube about it.. was ever hardly mentioned, if there was one camera i had to keep it would be the 600D for sure mine is still in mint condition, its also the perfect light camera to carry on holidays with the nifty 50 and does great movies. great video thank you for bringing all the nostalgia back.

    Hello, I was hoping you could answer a few questions for me 😉 — I recently acquired an old Canon Rebel XT with some lenses, and I was planing on upgrading to the T3i since it seems a lot better than the XT. I was wondering if the lenses my XT came with are compatible with the T3i, and would this set up work good for starting out in astrophotography and some landscape photos? – The lenses are ~
    – Canon Efs 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6
    – Canon Efs 35-80mm 1:4-5.6
    – Canon Efs 80-200mm 1:4.5-5.6
    – Quantaray for Canon AF 145-400mm 1:4.5-5.6
    – Also an assortment of uv haze filters, polarizers, wide angle hood, etc.

    I’m going to be doing some more reading on these accessories and photography in general to get a better understanding of everything so I can get out there and start taking photos! But I was curious on your thoughts if these lenses with a T3i would work out well for starting out, and if you recommend anything else I should get it would need. Sorry for the long noob comment, thanks for your time !

  18. Hyakutake

    I had a 70d years ago when I had money (somehow)…… I sold it when times got tough and now I'm gonna get a t3i off ebay soon.

  19. David Mota

    Just got a t3i! Could you post a link of a lens you reccomend 50mm f1.8?

  20. Moriah

    I just got mine but every time I try to record it says” recording stopped automatically “

  21. James Sepello

    1:42 you seem to suggest using a Panasonic GH5 to record this video "shakes fingers at camera", 6:12 says your using a T3i. I'm confused. Doesn't matter, to me anyway. Impressive channel BTW.

  22. Vegetal0l

    dont sell your t3i's lol its actually good for zoom, streaming, webcam uses compared to the regualr pc webcams haha

  23. Yeshaya

    I sold my rebel T3 I and I’m buying another one again lol

  24. Baggage Claim
