Packability

Functionality

Bare-minimum features that may be

Several better options for this type of entry-level camera.

Value

Decent price for an entry-level DSLRs.

I owned the older version of the Canon Rebel T3 (1100D) in my tween years between the ancient Ae-1 (my personal favorite) and more modern professional photography gear. At the time (well over a decade ago), it was the perfect entry level camera for (D)SLRs and now the markets saturated with much better options. For the price, you can find better these days. And for only few dollars more, you can enter the professional realm. Woah.
