[Review] Rebel T4i/EOS 650D Is A Great Entry Level DSLR

The Phoblographer just published its review of the Rebel T4i (named EOS 650D in Europe). The review is detailed and well-reasoned, as usual. You may be surprised to learn that the Auto-Focus on the T4i/650D can easily outperform the AF of the EOS 5D Mark II (well, in certain situation):

For a wide majority of shooting situations, the Canon T4i’s phase detection focusing is extremely quick; when not in Live View Mode […] My general way of using cameras no matter what the make or model is to manually select a single focusing point when shooting. However, when the user enables all focusing points to be used, you’ll end up having little to no problem in terms of both speed and accuracy. In fact, the Canon T4i’s focusing is better than my Canon 5D Mk II’s. Now don’t take this the wrong way; they are two totally different cameras. However, it is a testament to show just how far the technology has come: an entry level Rebel can outdo a 5D Mk II in terms of focusing. That’s pretty crazy when you think about it.

Many sample images at different ISO settings are provided (btw, the T4i/650D has a rather good high ISO performance). All in all a review that’s worth to be read. From the conclusion:

The Canon T4i is a wonderful entry level camera with loads and loads of lenses available to the system. The image quality is excellent, it is easy to use, and it has a rather decent video mode. The menus can be a bit complex, but overall there really is absolutely no real problem with this camera despite what seems to be modest upgrades from its predecessor.

Another >12 min video review by DigitalRev: EOS 60D vs Rebel T4i/650D. Which one is better suited for your needs?

In this video we take a little trip to the Ani Com fair, which showcases a load of people dressing up in maids and schoolgirl uniforms, to compare two of Canon’s most popular DSLRs: the EOS 60D and recently released 650D. Just which one is right for you?

[Review] Rebel T4i/650D/X6i Full Review By DPreview

DPreview published the awaited review of the Rebel T4i/650D. I didn’t expect it to be that positive, final score is 77/100. However, the “biggest disappointment […] lies in the camera’s ‘hybrid’ AF performance in live view and video modes“. No surprise here. The positive aspects:

  • 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 forward (compared to its predecessor)
  • Built-in lens correction for vignetting and CA
  • Effective HDR, lowlight and noise reduction multi-exposure modes
  • Wireless strobe triggering via built-in flash
  • Eye sensor to toggle LCD on and off
  • Built-in stereo mics
  • External microphone socket
  • Updated LCD screen minimizes fingerprint smudges from touchscreen use
  • High quality raw converter in software bundle
