We've just posted a full set of lab test shots from a production-level Canon T3i digital SLR!
The Canon Rebel T3i takes the feature-set of the previous T2i model, and puts it in a new body with a number of important changes. Key among these is the switch to a new Vari-angle screen, which necessitates a rearrangement of the Rebel T3i's rear panel. Under the skin, the new Canon EOS T3i has the same 18 megapixel resolution as its predecessor, and retains the same pentamirror viewfinder with 0.87x magnification and 95% coverage, and a 1.04 million dot 3.0-inch LCD display, plus a nine-point AF system with enhanced f/2.8 cross-type point at the center of the array. The Canon T3i adds a number of reduced-resolution shooting modes, a new Auto Picture Style function, and a 20% increase in body-only weight. Body size also increases by a few millimeters in each direction. See our Canon Rebel T3i Hands-on Preview for all the details, including test images from a production model.
