Canon Unveils 18MP EOS Rebel T4i with Touchscreen and Two New STM Lenses
Canon unveiled a new flagship Rebel digital SLR this morning, the EOS Rebel T4i (650D). The new Canon Rebel T4i uses an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor and can shoot up to five frames per second (fps).
According to Canon, the DIGIC 5 operates five times faster than the DIGIC 4 processor, providing an across-the-board speed jump in the Canon Rebel T4i.
The Rebel T4i ($849, body only) also features an extended ISO range of 100–12800 (expandable to 25,600 in H mode) and a new AF system similar to the one in the Canon 60D with a nine-point, all cross-type sensor array. The Rebel T4i adds what Canon calls a “new Hybrid CMOS AF” system, designed to achieve faster focus when shooting stills or video in Live View mode.
Also new to the Rebel line is the T4i’s new 3-inch Vari-angle, Touch Screen Clear View LCD monitor II with “fingertip” controls, touch-menu and touch still and video capabilities. The flip-out, side-swiveling vari-angle screen has 1.04 million dots resolution to create clear and crisp image and video playback and Live View.
