EOS Rebel T3 motion sensor compatibility

Hello I’m getting a censor to help with wildlife at night and wanted to know if the censor in this link will plug into the canon camera eos rebel t3 because I know some plugs are different. Here’s the link

I was also curious how the battery does not die. Thanks

Greetings,

The 1100D / T3 takes an E3 cable.  In theory it should work, but we cannot guarantee compatibility with any 3rd party products.  I'd reach out to Camtraptions to confirm. 

For power, you could use an ACK-E10.

Hello,

However, when it comes to compatibility with external sensors, especially those not designed specifically for the camera, there are some considerations: Sensor Compatibility: The sensor you’re referring to must be compatible with the Canon EOS Rebel T3’s mount and electrical connections. Unfortunately, the information you provided doesn’t specify the type of sensor or its connection type. Flange Distance and Vignetting: If the sensor has a different flange distance (distance from the sensor to the lens mount), it may not focus correctly or cause vignetting. Vignetting occurs when the sensor sees the inside of the lens barrel, resulting in dark corners in the image. Infinity Focus: Ensure that the sensor allows focusing to infinity. Some sensors may have limitations in this regard. Research the Specific Sensor: Look for compatibility information specific to the sensor you’re considering.
If possible, consult the manufacturer’s documentation or seek advice from experts.

Best Regard

Greetings,

The sensor he is referring to is a motion sensing trigger.  It doesn't capture images.
