Canon Rebel T4i Official Release

By fotosiamo on June 9th 2012

Canon t4i Front 2


Continuing its path to full video/DSLR convergence, Canon has just released the new Rebel T4i (650D outside the US), which features a Canon DSLR-first continuous autofocus during video recording with its Hybrid AF. There will be two lenses that are video-optimized, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM zoom lens and a Pentax-like EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens.

Other notable features include a quieter shutter sound, 9 cross-type AF points, five frames per seconds burst mode, DIGIC 5 processor, 100 ISO to 12,800 ISO expandable to 25,600 ISO, stereo microphone, UHS-I SDXC storage cards compatibility, and a 3.0″ capacitive touchscreen LCD. The touchscreen allows you to flick through your images, pinch-zoom, and quickly change settings through the Quick Menu.

The 18 megapixel t4i sensor is brand new and sports an video-only on-sensor Phase-detect AF on top of the usual dedicated PDAF sensor and on-sensor contrast-detect AF. This on-chip PDAF is what helps with the video continuous AF and reduce hunting. This PDAF has a smaller coverage area than the regular PDAF, but is surrounded by the CDAF. The new STM lenses can switch seamlessly between the two sensors, while non-STM lenses can only use the smaller PDAF for continuous video AF. Regular still photos still uses the dedicated PDAF sensor.

      How noisy is the shutter of the EOS650D compared to the 550D and 600D? Does the 650D sounds like the 60D?

      Thanks
