Canon EOS Rebel T4i review

 

People who use Live View with autofocus for stills or video are the biggest winners with this generation of the top model in Canon's EOS Rebel series. The big updates to the T4i (aka the EOS 650D overseas) over its predecessor are the addition of a...

The Canon EOS Rebel T4i delivers extremely good photo and video quality plus improved performance in Live View shooting over the T3i -- as long as you buy the more expensive 18-135mm STM kit. Plus, the camera has a more streamlined shooting design than...

The feature set remains rather blah, and its photos aren't as good as the T3i's at high ISO sensitivities.

A fine camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i's more expensive 18-135mm STM kit (or body with another STM lens) is the only version that merits an unqualified recommendation. You can probably find better alternatives if you just want a sub-$1,000 dSLR for...

Canon EOS Rebel T4i

 

The Canon EOS Rebel T4i delivers top speed along with excellent image quality, and supports smooth video autofocus when paired with the right lens. It's a laudable performer, but doesn't quite edge out the Nikon D5100 as our top pick for under-$1,000...

Fast to start and shoot. Sharp, articulated touch-screen LCD. Compact. Nearly silent video autofocus when used with STM lenses. 5fps shooting. Good image detail at high ISOs. Fast autofocus.

Tiny viewfinder. Very limited burst shooting in Raw mode. Video autofocus is choppy with non-STM lenses.

There's also a Q button, which allows you to adjust many of the same settings, along with the Metering mode, from the rear LCD. You can use the physical controls to navigate, or touch the screen to change settings. The display itself is extremely sharp...

Canon EOS 650D (EOS Rebel T4i / EOS Kiss X6i)

 

The Canon EOD 650D / Rebel T4i is the company's latest addition to its novice-oriented 'Rebel' series. With more than two decades of continuous success in its film and digital incarnations, these little SLRs have been improved and refined to the point...

Canon EOS Rebel T4i review: testing the world's first touchscreen DSLR

 

The best camera is the one you have with you." You've probably heard the quote: it's often used these days to explain why smartphones are threatening to push traditional point-and-shoot cameras into early retirement. Pocketcams...

Great images and video from any angle ; Genuinely useful touchscreen control ; Better at picking settings for you ; Vastly improved frame rate (and shutter sound!)

Image quality on par with cheaper predecessors ; Continuous autofocus not (yet) worth the investment ; Difficult to grip

As always, rebellion comes at a cost

The Canon EOS Rebel T4i / 650D delivers 18 megapixels of professional grade image quality in a compact, lightweight,feature-filled, easy-to-use body that carries a very affordable price tag.That is the same opening line I used for the Canon EOS Rebel...

Canon EOS 650D Review

 

The Canon EOS 650D (called the Digital Rebel T4i in North America) is a new DSLR camera that sits above last year's 600D / T3i at the top of Canon's entry-level EOS line-up. The 18 megapixel 650D / T4i offers a dual AF system which ensures sharp stills...

Canon EOS Rebel T4i (EOS 650D)

 

Canon's T4i raises the bar in terms of important enthusiast features, including a faster frame rate, new multi-shot modes, and Full HD stereo movies, but its new phase-detect autofocus falls short for movies.

Excellent image quality; 9 cross-type AF points; Stereo microphones; Built-in touchscreen; Multi-shot modes

Slow Live View and video autofocus; High ISO performance is unimproved; Below-average battery life; No dedicated AF illuminator

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 the...

Canon EOS Rebel T4i: Lab Test Results & Comments

 

The Canon EOS Rebel T4i offers the same sensor resolution of 18MP as its forerunner EOS T3i, but shows a lot of improvements in handling and functionality due to a new image sensor and a new image processor. The camera is Canon's first D-SLR with a...

New Hybrid CMOS ; Very good image results ; Swivel monitor ; Touchscreen for easy handling ; Sophisticated Full HD video capabilities

Somewhat high saturation of red nuances, which reduces differentiation in these colors
