Canon EOS 650D: Review
27 August 2013
Summary: I would recommend the Canon EOS 650D. Definitely yes, it is an intermediate model that can please everyone, from those who have never picked up a camera for those who have been using for years the products of the Japanese.
Pros: Fully adjustable screen, type tactile interface and well designed, King's sense of proximity that turns off the screen when not in use, Image quality.
Cons: Body a little small and unbalanced, Shutter sounds a bit metal.
Excerpt: A while ago we looked at the Canon 650D and pitted it against it’s nearest Nikon rival, the D5200. There has always been the question of ‘do I need to invest that much as a beginner?’ ‘Is there any major advantage of spending the extra cash for a 650D over the D3200?’
Excerpt: Canon and Nikon make excellent cameras and with Nikon’s release of the D5200 the obvious question is; how does it stack up against the Canon competition? Here we compare the D5200 against its main Canon competition, the 650D.
Excerpt: Canon has sent its DSLR rabble-raising Rebel to finishing school and today it has introduced — with degree in hand — the Canon Rebel T4i ($949, kit) . Packed with prosumer grade technology from the 7D and 60D models, the T4i packs an 18 megapixel APS CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5 processor, 5 fps shooting,...
Conclusion: The 650D is the first Canon entry level DSLR to feature a DIGIC 5 processor that has far reaching benefits in terms of processing power. Another first is the inclusion of AF tracking in the cameras video mode (only available on certain lenses).
Summary: Canon continues to make the top of its Rebel line just what it needs to be. As video has been the main theme in DSLRs this year, the new, more robust AF system is a welcome addition, as is the stereo microphone.
Canon EOS Rebel T4i review: testing the world's first touchscreen DSLR
11 September 2012
Excerpt: "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 aren't the only category under siege, though.
Pros: Great images and video from any angle, Genuinely useful touchscreen control, Better at picking settings for you, Vastly improved frame rate (and shutter sound!)
Cons: Image quality on par with cheaper predecessors, Continuous autofocus not (yet) worth the investment, Difficult to grip
Summary: The EOS 650D is Canon's best entry-level dSLR to date, but with several interchangeable-lens compacts offering similar touchscreen features, higher resolutions and a healthy range of lenses, there are too many lower-priced alternatives to make it a no-questions-asked must-buy.
Pros: Responsive touchscreen; impressive video performance; Punchy, accurate colours.
Cons: Some colour fringing with 18-55m kit lens; Price undercut by rivals; No resolution enhancement over predecessor.
