Canon EOS 1100D is a 12.2-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera announced by Canon on 7 February 2011.[1] It is known as the EOS Kiss X50 in Japan and the EOS Rebel T3 in the Americas. The 1100D is Canon's most basic entry-level DSLR, and introduces movie mode to other entry level DSLRs. It replaced the 1000D and is also the only Canon EOS model currently in production that is not made in Japan but in Taiwan, aside from the EOS Rebel T4i.

Canon announced in February 2014 that the 1100D was replaced by the 1200D/Rebel T5.[2]

Creative Zone[edit]

  • A-DEP (Auto Depth-of-field AE): The camera automatically selects the aperture and shutter speed to keep most of the image in focus. (Only recommended in high light conditions as the camera tends to choose smaller f/stops)
  • M (Manual): The camera lets you choose manually the aperture and shutter speed.
  • Av (Aperture priority): The camera lets the user choose the aperture (f/) value and then automatically adjusts the shutter speed for correct exposure.
  • Tv (Shutter speed priority): The camera lets the user set the shutter speed and automatically sets the aperture for correct exposure.
  • P (Program AE): The camera automatically chooses an aperture and shutter combination for correct exposure and the user can change between one of these combinations.

Basic Zone[edit]

  • Full Auto (represented with a green rectangle): Completely automatic shooting.
  • Creative Auto: is a camera setting that's designed to aid new users in achieving good quality results without having to learn and understand all of the camera's functions and how exposure is set.
  • No Flash: All automatic with no flash.
  • Portrait: The camera attempts to create a more shallow depth of field to create more striking portraits.
  • Landscape: For shooting landscapes and sunsets.
  • Close-Up: For shooting small objects near to the camera.
  • Sports: For capturing fast moving objects.
  • Night Portrait: Shoots with flash and with slow shutter so that the subject is illuminated by the flash and the background (e.g. a city) is also captured naturally in the night.

Video recording[edit]

The 1100D captures 720p video, it does not have continuous auto-focus while filming video; to keep a moving subject in focus the user must either trigger the auto-focus, as when shooting stills, or manually adjust the focus while recording.
