Description by Canon:

An ideal entry to the world of EOS imaging. The EOS 650D’s 18.0-megapixel sensor is superb for both still images and Full HD movies. A Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen makes shooting simple.

Kenny Good and the Weapons Of Mass Production try to find out the best Dslr-for video, under $1.000: Canon T4i with 18-55mm kit lens VS. Sony NEX-6 with 16-50mm kit lens VS. Panasonic GH2 with 14-15mm kit lens, both stock and with Flowmotion v2.02 hack.

Yes, the the very same nuts from Crisis Labs reviews with the bats, and semi-nude models and all that. They take on a slightly more serious and hi-tech tone in this review, with RC Helicopters, IR suits, and... bats.

"The Sony actually did quite well, and if size (for travel) is a concern, I'd suggest this one.  It's just a hair behind I think in the image metrics, but not in a huge way.  The focus issue did drive me crazy.  Maybe there's a menu option I didn't see that prevents it from going to sleep.  I actually had to reshoot the sharpness (helicopter) comparison because it did that same focus thing to me.  That's why when it did it again for the dancing, I decided to leave it in the video that way.  It has focus peaking (that shows you a highlighted version of in-focus areas on the display) which really helps with video, and I doubt this issue would ever come up when shooting stills.  It's a solid camera, very similar to Canon in image quality, great if you're a space-conscious traveller. . . . read more

Nikon D5200 vs Canon t4i/650D, which one should you buy? Carl Spring at Digital Rev compares the two, throws in some high iso tests in the mix.

So which one should you buy? Well this is likely to be the first camera purchase of many and being honest, wherever you place your money you will have made a good choice. The Nikon does feature a better sensor than the Canon offering and the AF system is a better offering. Does that mean it is the better camera?

Well yes, on the spec sheet and beyond the Nikon is the better camera here. It possesses a better AF system and  . . . read more

Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i review at Imaging Resource

It looks as if Canon has hit a wall (unintentionally or not) when it comes to high iso performance, and it's evident across the line of the latest EOS incarnations. There's also the slow video AF issue:

"When a company touts a new feature that turns out to be, well, not so hot, it casts a pall over the entire product, sometimes unnecessarily. This is one of those cases. Most people still don't think of SLRs primarily as video cameras, so that . . . read more

2012 DigitalCameraInfo Best of Year Awards

Yes, its this time of the year, the 'award and predictions (that mostly fail) for the next year' time. DCI is first, with, in some categories, slightly peculiar selection:

"2012 has been one of the most exciting years yet for the staff here at, as the photographic industry put the woes of 2011 behind it to release some truly amazing cameras. From flagship DSLRs to incredible compacts, there . . . read more

Canon 650D/T41 gets DXO marked, manages to stay behind all current DSLRs. Has Canon lost the edge in Sensor development?

It is a lot worse actually, this latest Canon Aps-c camera gets lower score than cameras with a much smaller sensor, like the Olympus E-M5. It even stays behind its own predecessor (600D/T3i), on every single measurement, and that surely must be a first in the digital camera world. . . . read more

Canon EOS Rebel T4i Review at DCRP

Jeff Keller has reviewed the latest (and greatest, according to many) entry level Canon DSLR:

"Camera performance is mixed. The Rebel T4i's 1.3 second startup time is a bit slow for a digital SLR. Focus times depend on the lens you're using, the chosen focus mode, and lighting conditions. When shooting with the optical viewfinder, the T4i . . . read more

Canon 650D/T41 review by Mark Goldstein

The 650D/Rebel T41 was a bit bigger upgrade to the Rebel line than previous incremental ones. Canon is feeling the heat from the mirrorless competition, and has responded with an unusual amount of new features and improved functionality. All reviews of this entry level DSLR reflect this upping of the ante by Canon: . . . read more

Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i review at DPreview

Never mind the toxic chemicals issue, or the other few baby bugs popping up here and there, this camera represents a bit bigger leap in the EOS Rebel upgrade line. A few of the new include a capacitive touch screen (a first for a DSLR), and a new 'Hybrid CMOS":

"This is made possible by Canon's new 'Hybrid CMOS' sensor that now includes pixels dedicated to phase detection autofocus. The Hybrid . . . read more
