Pros:Reflex within everyone's reach. Not heavy. Built-in flash.
Cons:Autofocus slow. Fixed screen and not great. No wifi.
Opinion:My first serious camera. An entry level machine but able to give a lot of satisfaction to a beginner. I still have it but I use it little because it is now obsolete, although the quality of the photos is still excellent. Some limitations that in 2020 begin to be important are the fact that the screen is fixed, does not have wifi (I solved with Eye-fi,but it is a limited solution), the display is not touch and is mediocre. Few "fantastic" settings are preset. It is still a great learning machine, but I recommend models with some more advanced features and above all the ability to share shots immediately.
Cons:No WIFI/Bluetooth connectivity, looks like a toy, few functions, ISO selectable only for unitary stop, bad noise access to battery and SD card inconvenient, poorly defined display
Opinion:I don't dwell on flaws because they are an entry level. I bought it in 2011 in kit with the 18-55 Mark II IS. He accompanied me on every continent and never left me. It allowed me to "learn" to photograph and especially to experiment: long exposures, startrail, timelapse, Hyperlapse. I think that for what it does the cost is right, also given the simplicity of the menus is practically exploitable in full from the first exits. In spite of a single ring nut combining the keys you are able to vary the three shooting parameters without removing the eye from the viewfinder. Coupled with better optics is able to give good shots, sharp and with pleasant colors. The files are quite workable, obviously you can not do miracles, but as already said we are talking about an entry level machine. It has a 12MP APS-C sensor, which allows you to go about at 800 ISO in addition to which the noise becomes too obvious and ugly and goes to invalidate the sharpness. Despite being switched to more powerful camera bodies I decided to keep it as a second camera body to use for timelapse and a day to teach photography to my son. I think this density is perfect for beginners as it returns small RAW and easily exploitable for social or internet (I do not think that those who want to make prints buy a machine like that). If you find a used at a good price buy it, except for the lack of connectivity with smartphones, has all the cards to compete with the latest Canon models of the same band.
Pros:Perfect for those approaching photography: price, use, lightness
Cons:Noise at average ISO (frequently used), sharpness
Opinion:I have this reflex for more than five years and I have tried it in almost all fields of nature photography, plus something landscape and souvenir photos or travel. It is great for those approaching the world of photography, because the price is very content. After having enlarged, however, remains a bit ' tight: 9 points AF are not many; Already starting from 400 ISO the noise you hear and a long exposure to 100 ISO is like a picture at 1600; The sharpness, even because of the few MP's, is not who knows what. In any case, as entry level is good, or rather it was in his time. Now, if I started, I'd go on a successor model (1300D or 2/4000d) if not even a top-end used.
Opinion:It was my first DSLR, it's been many years since then. An object that I remember with sympathy and affection, I had it with the 18-55 is II. Very simple to use. Over time, when I deepened the world of SLR I discovered immediately the many limits in particular side noise. For those who start now and want to take it used advice to orient themselves on other machine bodies anyway cheap in the world of used type 100d or 600d and to use the 1100d only if you find it by chance or gift. It's an honest entry level but now obsolete. But I remember it fondly.
Pros:Price/performance ratio, lightness, battery life and machine body
Cons:Noise above 800 ISO, autofocus accuracy
Opinion:After having had a compact Canon for a few years I went to the 1100d that was my first reflex and that has the great merit of having me passionate about amateur photography. When you buy it you already know that it is an entry level, so you can not expect superlative performance. It has a plasticose but sturdy construction, the sharpness is not exceptional but improves with better lenses than the 18-55mm standard. The accuracy of the autofocus is not at the highest levels and if you are not careful of the times it can happen that going to cover the photo to the computer is blurry. An expected nuisance is the noise present above 800 ISO, which really becomes consistent over the 1600. The files that it results in anyway are appreciable and excellent for those who are in the beginning and want to make the bones. At the time of its release it had a very good price/performance ratio. I used it very satisfactorily for 6 years, then I switched to a 6d which of course is another world, but the 1100d I also held it with me;)
