Sorry about the T3/T3i mixup!
I don't shoot canon and don't follow the minor Model variances.
Corrected link info for the T3:
A couple of alternative manuals:
Here's a link to the original manual: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0/030000...d-im2-c-en.pdf
Landscape icon is the one with the little mountains. See page 59 for details.
On page 18, locate the flash button on the right side of the camera just in ftont of the mode dial (little button with a lightning bolt on it). Just push it and it forces the flash to pop up and turn on. See pages 88 and 106 for details.
Window shooting...no change:
Program AE is very smart and shooting through glass (plastic on the airplane unless it is specially fitted with optical glass ports) is more about controlling reflections than anything else. Wear dark clothes and even very light dark gloves. Some people use the flexible rubber accessory lens hoods that you can buy at Ritz or Wolf's to cushion the lens right up against the glass. No filter. A UV filter will just add reflections and a polarizer will cause weird color shifts shooting through the lexan windows.
Image size and quality (only page change):
On page 74 there'a a chart. You want to set it to Large 18MP High Quality JPEG. Don't worry about RAW. Canon does just fine on JPEG and you don't need the extra work.
