Overview

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.

  • 18.0 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Full-HD movies with manual controls and continuous AF
  • 5 fps continuous shooting
  • Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen
  • ISO 100-12,800 sensitivity, extendable to ISO 25,600
  • 9-point wide-area AF
  • Integrated Speedlite Transmitter

Advanced image quality
Capture every detail with 18-megapixel resolution, and enjoy the smooth tones and accurate colours of 14-bit DIGIC 5 image processing. The EOS 650D produces files big enough to print at large sizes or crop for alternative compositions without sacrificing quality.

Produce Full HD movie projects 
Capture premium-quality movies at 1080p resolution, enjoying the right level of automatic or manual control for you. Autofocus is possible while filming, and a built in microphone enables the recording of high-quality stereo audio.

Keep up with fast moving action 
Track moving objects accurately across the frame with an autofocus system comprising nine cross-type AF points. Continuous shooting at 5 fps for bursts of up to 22 frames means you’ll never miss that decisive moment.

Explore new viewpoints 
The EOS 650D has a Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio Clear View LCD II Touch screen that hinges away from the camera’s body and rotates through 270º. This enables video and still-image shooting from alternative viewpoints – such as over the top of crowds or from waist level.

Touch-screen control 
Enjoy alternative access to the EOS 650D’s controls through a Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen. Shoot and focus with a single tap and use pinch and swipe gestures when reviewing images.

Low-light performance 
The EOS 650D can capture images over a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12,800 (extendable to ISO 25,600), enabling hand-held shooting in low light without using flash.

Integrated Speedlite Transmitter 
Explore creative lighting options by positioning Canon Speedlite flashes off camera and controlling them with the EOS 650D’s Integrated Speedlite Transmitter.

Scene Intelligent Auto 
Canon’s Scene Intelligent Auto technology analyses each scene and sets the most appropriate combination of cameras settings automatically.

Great results in difficult conditions 
HDR Backlight control captures three different exposures and combines them into one, retaining shadow and highlight detail. The EOS 650D’s hand-held night scene mode captures multiple images at fast shutter speeds and blends them together for a blur-free result.

 

Reviews

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.

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

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

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.

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

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:

Post date: 11/09/2012 - 12:19

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
