Do you have one? Do you like it? Can I see pics you've taken using Auto?

Specifically

Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2MP DSLR Camera

If you plan to use a DSLR on auto, you should just get a point and shoot. You will get better results with a higher end P&S than using a DSLR on auto.

Hmmm I have a good point and shoot. I'm just wanting to see Auto quality for the times I need to snap a quick picture without messing with settings.

I wish I had an slr but my point and shoot does an awesome job with a little editing.

If you know how to use a DSLR there is no need for auto. Get one if you plan on learning, but if you just want to stick it on auto, then get a P&S or even a bridge camera. Canon G series are great Bridge cameras.

Auto is (9 times out of 10) never pretty on a DSLR.

The things that make a great picture great are, 

1. Lighting

2. Exposure

3. Focus/Clarity

You can acheive this with the most basic of equipment, but, you have to know how. A DSLR on auto is going to take the lighting at face value, expose the for majority of the image (hello blowouts or nothing at all) and also focus on what it deems is most contrasty. Whether that be a ribbon on a baby (and not its eyes) or A house in the background, instead of a moving toddler/subject, etc.

Well its not letting me upload any images, I don't know why. I will keep trying. But I agree with pp I wouldn't but it to use on auto.

My husband and I just bought one last week.  Even though I'm still getting used to it, I used it to take pictures at my daughter's cross country meet on Monday.  They came out great, but I was using it on shutter priority mode instead of Auto.  We bought the 55-250 lens for telephoto use.  My hubby knows a lot more about cameras than me (I had been using a Kodak compact which wore out)
