Big

Though it's not the heaviest camera in its class, the T3's body is rather clunky. And while I like the rubberized grip, the whole camera feels very cheap and plasticky.

Back controls

Almost everything I don't like about the T3 is back here. The 2.7-inch LCD and viewfinder feel tiny and most of the buttons are too flat.

As I've often complained before, I hate it that you have to use a specific movie mode to shoot video, and I especially hate that it's on the opposite side of the mode dial from the manual modes. For the T3, Canon also made the flash button flat and moved it to the right side; I had to look up its location in the manual because it was so camouflaged.

SD card slot

See that huge grip? You'd think there'd be plenty of room for an SD card slot in there. Instead, Canon moved it to the bottom, in the battery compartment--a popular but annoying location.
