    I would like to ask you a question to all and your expert advise will be highly appreciated. I am looking to buy a camera for my wife since we both are excited having our first baby- she wants to get a camera that dimmed the background and focus the main object- she looked at DSLR t3i other day and she said it does that....

    CANON T3i is good cam to buy for new born baby? what kind of lense am I looking for ?

    Why are you starting this thread back up that is two years old.

    The t3i is a good start, kit lens and maybe 50mm 1.8. And a good speed lite would work well. Also look into maybe getting an umbrella and light stands.

    Look through the forum. There is millions of different posts about this subject.

    Well, you probably should have started your own post, instead of drumming up one that is 3 years old but I'll bite anyway.
    The T3i will do what she wants it to do, but not without proper lighting and some fairly in-depth camera knowledge. No camera just does that for you. YOU have to know what you are doing. If you know what you are doing you can achieve that with a crap web cam.
