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.
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: The Canon Rebel T4i / EOS 650D is Canon's latest upper entry level DSLR. It fits between its predecessor, the Rebel T3i / EOS 600D and the EOS 60D in the Canon line up and, to a casual observer, it might seem to have very little to offer over the model it replaces.
Pros: 3 inch LCD capacitive touch-screen., Hybrid CMOS AF sensor with continuous AF for movies., Quiet focusing STM kit lens option., Chromatic aberration correction., 5fps continuous shooting., Multi shot noise reduction mode.
Cons: Only 3-frame auto bracketing., Movie crop / digital zoom of T3i / 600D dropped., Live mode hybrid AF can be slow and unresponsive.
Summary: At around £230 more than the EOS 600D , the new model can’t be said to be particularly good value right now, although its price is more than likely to descend once it’s settled into the market.
Pros: Responsive touchscreen with added bonus of touch-shooting and image reviewing, light body, consistent metering system
Cons: Auto white balance not always entirely accurate (more neutral than faithful), room for improvement with touchscreen, burst depth could be better
Excerpt: and features a new touchscreen and Hybrid AF designed to give continuous AF during video recording. A number of other improvements have been included such as stereo microphones, quicker continuous shooting, built in HDR creation as well as the DIGIC 5 processor enabling higher ISO settings.
Pros: Excellent noise performance up to ISO3200 and above, Live view allows 5x and 10x magnification to aid manual focus, Excellent image quality, Excellent colour reproduction, Excellent touch screen, Solid body with good handling, Playback image star ratings
Cons: Slow live view focus (compared to Sony SLT or Mirrorless), Lens focusing motor loud and picked up by microphones, Noticeable barrel and pincushion distortion with 18-135mm lens, The lens aberration correction feature slows continuous shooting
Summary: The Canon EOS 650D / Rebel T4i is the best mid-range Canon DSLR yet, offering a lot of new features that aren't apparent at first glance. In particular we appreciated the new touch-screen interface, faster burst mode, expanded ISO range and the ability to continuously auto-focus during movie...
Summary: Despite others sending in wave after wave of compact system camera combatants , Canon stubbornly continues to throw newer, stronger DSLRs into the fray. And the 650D looks like the kind of opponent that will chew you up, spit you out and fashion your bones into a scale model of the Eiffel Tower.
Pros: 18MP hybrid CMOS sensor, Continuous auto-focus in video mode, Beautifully crisp video footage, Controls to suit all
Summary: Canon's first touchscreen DSLR is put through its paces
Pros: Touchscreen, Vari-angle screen, Image quality and high ISO performance, 5fps continuous shooting, Easy interface, We found the articulated touchscreen responsive and easy to use. It enables quick settings adjustments and fast shooting from awkward angles, but if you don't want to use it you still...
Cons: 'Only' 18MP, No headphone socket, Raw burst-depth, No rating button, New NR mode is JPEG only, Although it has Canon's rating system that enables you to score images with up to five stars, there's no dedicated rating button, so it's not quite as quick to use as with the Canon 5D Mark III . It's a...
