The Canon 1100D features very basic controls so you can spend less time worrying about HOW to take pictures and instead focus on capturing important moments.

To be more specific than that: you get the autofocus performance, speed and high image quality of an SLR camera without having to learn tons of photo jargon to use it.

Since the camera doesn't include a lot of the fancy customization that more advanced photographers often look for in an SLR, the price is kept relatively low - although you can still purchase a compact digital camera for less.

It can even capture motion pictures: the Canon 1100D features a high definition 720p video mode and it has an HDMI port so you can attach it to a widescreen TV for playback.

The real power of this camera comes from the fact that it is compatible with a huge number of Canon lenses that let you capture all kinds of viewpoints (wide angle, close up, etc.).

In addition, the Canon 1100D T3 works with plenty of third party lenses that are high quality but lower in price than those made by Canon.
