Canon EOS Rebel T4i (Body Only)

 

Editors' note, March 28, 2013: Canon recently discontinued the T4i and has replaced it with the nearly identical EOS Rebel T5i .

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 Review

 

Canon's newest entry-level dSLR camera, the Rebel T4i has been given a few major upgrades, including continuous autofocus during video recording, a touch screen LCD, and the new DIGIC 5 image processor. These have greatly improved the camera's...

SR Auto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations ; Image capture during video recording can be very convenient ; Outstanding image quality for an entry-level dSLR ; Captures beautiful Full HD video ; Excellent performance with the new DIGIC...

Higher ISO levels, 3200 and up, are too noisy for quality images ; There is a pause if you capture an image during video recording ; Burst shooting was just under the 5fps that Canon claims is possible ; Slightly Higher Price than other entry-level models

Canon EOS Rebel T4i

 

The Canon EOS Rebel T4i ($849 list, body only) is the successor to the Rebel T3i , a camera that suffered from very slow autofocus in Live View mode. The T4i does a much better job, especially when used with Canon's latest STM lenses. It's not without...

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

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...

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

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

Camera Test: Canon EOS Rebel T4i

 

Nearly every year, we have a cover declaring the best Rebel ever. Even though we didn't do that this year, it would've been true if we had; Canon always manages to make improvements in its Rebel line

EOS Rebel T4i

 

(from $849) is Canon's latest entry-level digital SLR, and the replacement to last year's Rebel T3i. The biggest change on the new T4i is related to autofocus. When shooting with the viewfinder, there's a new 9-point, all cross-type AF sensor, which...

Very good photo quality, with low noise levels through ISO 3200/6400 (low/normal light) ; Super-sharp 3-inch touchscreen LCD can flip to the side and rotate 270 degrees ; Useful touchscreen functions include focus, shutter, and menus in record mode;...

Photos a bit soft, at least with the 18 - 135 mm kit lens ; Brownish color cast in a few situations (mixed/artificial lighting) ; Chromatic aberration correction should be on by default ; Strong redeye, no removal tool in playback mode ; Live view AF...

Just when you thought that Canon couldn't refine the already excellent Rebel T3i any further, the T4i arrived. Canon has managed to improve live view autofocus, though only with new STM lenses, and add touchscreen functionality that's actually useful....

Canon EOS Rebel T4i

 

Canon's Rebel T4i represents a middle ground between bargain-bin DSLRs and enthusiast models.

Canon's Rebel T4i is a satisfactory and rather unexciting mid-range performer.

Consumer review by:

"Upgraded from T2i"

 

I've owned 3 Canon cameras over the years, a Rebel SLR film camera, upgraded to the XTi for digital, then up to the T2i as it added video. I skipped the T1i/T3i as the feature set didn't seem that much improved over my previous models for the cost....

Outstanding Image Quality

Q button is almost directly above the "up" button

Consumer review by:

"Fantastic camera-video and still"

 

I did a tremendous amount of research before my purchase and, while we are a Canon family so, bit subjective, this is truly a fantastic piece of equipment.

Swingout screen.

Just wish that this had a more powerful zoom but the 135mm is nothing to complain about.
