Matt,

I have a Rebel T1i which I purchased in 2009. I am now ready to upgrade.

I have looked at 7D, T4i and T3i and not sure which one to choose. I will primarily be taking pictures with the occasional video.

Another question I have 18-55 MM and a 55-250 MM lens. Are they compatible with the T4i?

Sridhar:

While your question was directed toward Matt’s vast expertise, let me butt in.  I’m currently looking for a camera in the same class that you are searching.  Let’s look at your requirements a bit closer.

You’re “primarily taking pictures with occasional video” according to your post.

What do you do with these pictures?

      1. Do you share them online?
      2. Do you print them at the local drug store?
      3. Do you blow them up to poster-size proportions?

      If your answers to these are Yes, Yes, and No, the quality of the T1i sensor and megapixel count are likely sufficient for your use.

      Why do you want a new camera?

          1. New features?
          2. Outgrown the capabilities?
          3. Is your current camera broken?
          4. Keep up with the megapixel chasers?
          5. Just want a new one?
          6. Going professional?
          7. Need a new primary camera and looking at the T1i as a backup?

          The cameras you’re considering have similar sensors (1.6x crop, 18MP, ISO).  The form factor gets bigger and heavier as you move to the T3 and 7D models.  Do you need a feature such as high speed shutter actuation for certain types of photography?

          Develop your list of requirements for what you need in a camera.  Compare these requirements to your current camera and the potential candidates.  Consider all these requirements (and DESIREMENTS)  as you select your next black box.

          Yes, your current lenses will be compatible with the Canon EOS line.  You won’t need to buy new glass.

          Good Luck and enjoy the fish…oops, I mean “shopping”.

          Hi Matt,

          Just wanted to say that I am really enjoying your site.  I am happy to have become “reacquainted” again!

          Lots of good tips and great shots….  I like how you and your partners use some very unconventional ways to illustrate your

          photographic points… tying the classical music scores – the sheet music as well as the recordings – to your composition tips.

          Keep up the good work!
