Is the Canon T3i Still Relevant?


Jul 9, 2013
I'm looking to purchase a Canon DSLR under $1000.

My choices come down to the T3i, T5i and SL1

The T3i is the only one I can really afford. So what am I missing by not buying one of the others? Keep in mind my regular use includes photography during the day and at night, usually with sufficient light and I also regularly record videos that I do a lot with in post production. Filming generally takes place with lighting and I pull focus manually. When I shoot photos I rarely burst capture. Thanks for any advice.

Also, Bonus Points, Lead me to the biggest, fastest SD card for the lowest price please. Thanks.
