Canon EOS Rebel T4i

PC Magazine
26 August 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 D-SLR.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: Tiny viewfinder. Very limited burst shooting in Raw mode. Video autofocus is choppy with non-STM lenses.

27 July 2012
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 650D is the successor to the 600D, a camera that has earned the love and affection of many photography enthusiasts across the world. However, though the 650D doesn't look or feel a whole lot different from its predecessor, the insides tell a different story.
  • Pros: Hybrid AF coupled up with STM lenses yield amazing speed and accuracy, Live AF during video shooting is very good, New Digic V processor allows burst mode of 5fps
  • Cons: Low light performance is average at best, Compact build of the camera might not work for everyone, Lack of any kind of weather sealing

  • Summary: The Canon EOS 650D combines very good image quality with easy access to shooting parameters and extensive manual control. Its touchscreen interface brings a new level of operational efficiency to the DSLR market. Added to this is a fast 5fps shooting rate and quick phase detection AF.
  • Pros: Comprehensive touchscreen interface that is intuitive and efficient, High image quality with good balance between detail and noise reduction in JPEG output, Good subject tracking AF in viewfinder shooting mode (compared to mirrorless competition), 5 fps with ample buffering in JPEG-only mode, Very responsive operation, with menu access available even when buffer is full, Good-looking video output with manual exposure and audio controls, New 'hybrid AF' is a step forwa...
  • Cons: Slow 'hybrid AF' performance in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless competition), Slightly higher noise levels than its peers, Default dynamic range lags a bit behind its peers, Using flash with Auto ISO enabled results in ISO 400 even in bright light conditions, Cannot configure common live view and movie mode options independently, AF illuminator integrated into flash (must have flash engaged to use it), Shorter battery life than other DSLRs in its class

Canon EOS 650D

CNET
9 June 2012
  • 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. The prices below are for the EOS 650D plus kit kens.
  • Cons: Some colour fringing with 18-55m kit lens; Price undercut by rivals; No resolution enhancement over predecessor.

Canon EOS 650D review

Amateur Photographer

  • Summary: Canon sticks to a successful formula by using the same 18-million-pixel sensor and metering system as the EOS 7D and 60D, so the 650D performs as expected, which is good news for photographers. The addition of a touchscreen is a bonus and, alongside the buttons on the body, is an intuitive way to handle the camera. Navigating menus, viewing pictures and using touch AF and shutter are some of the 650D's highlights.

Canon EOS 650D review

Digital Arts
21 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The EOS 650D sits between the 600D and the 60D in Canon’s digital SLR range, and is classed as an entry-level model. There’s nothing entry-level about its capabilities, though: it’s fast, has an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor, is well built and has a touchscreen.
  • Pros: Fast performance; good usability; accurate focusing
  • Cons: Optical viewfinder leaves out some edge details

Canon EOS 650D review

18 October 2012
  • Conclusion: While the EOS 650D offers little significant advantage in image quality over the 600D, the viewfinder AF and overall performance are better, and the clever touch-screen control system works extremely well, allowing you to really make the most of an excellent camera. It’s only let down by the very disappointing live view and video focusing, its lacklustre kit lens and the fact that it’s surrounded by some very strong and considerably cheaper competition.
  • Pros: Touch-screen controls, Performance, Handling, Image quality
  • Cons: Slow live view AF, High-ISO noise
