According to p.252 of TFM, which I just re-R'd ( ), the default setting for the T3i is also Auto (1/200 - 30 s).
'TFM' is this 'The Freakin' Manual'
Anyone know if DigitalRev is an authorized reseller? Their prices seem pretty good.
I would not purchase from DigitalRev, especially after this fiasco...
DigitalRev offers their own 1 year warranty on all their Canon products, so in the event that you purchase a defective Canon camera and Canon refuses to service it under warranty, DigitalRev will cover the cost of repair or replacement. I forgot where I read this but it's somewhere on the DigitalRev site and I believe it to be true.
What happened in that story above was a DigitalRev employee took one of the DRTV 5D3s and shipped it as new in order to improve his performance rating (they were out of stock and he would have had to cancel the order otherwise, negatively affecting his rating).
That was an isolated incident and DigitalRev has taken appropriate action against the employee and compensated the blogger who wrote the story. Additionally, they hired an internal auditor just to ensure that something like this would never happen again.
The whole incident showed that despite the bad employee, DigitalRev was really on top of their customer service. I would definitely buy from them!
