Canon Launches The EOS Rebel T4i Camera

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Canon has launched a new flagship model in its EOS Rebel line, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR Camera.  The EOS Rebel T4i stands as Canon’s most “consumer-friendly” DSLR to date, says the company.

The Rebel T4i features an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, DIGIC 5 Image Processor with high-speed continuous shooting of up to five frames per second (fps) and an extended ISO range of 100–12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode)The camera includes a new autofocus (AF) system with a nine-point all cross-type sensor array with a high-precision dual-cross f/2.8 point at center. The new Hybrid CMOS AF achieves fast focus when shooting stills or video in Live View mode.

Using the touch panel, parents can select their child on the LCD screen and the camera will remain focused on that child while they stay in-frame, ensuring sharp focus in crowds and group shots. The new AF system enables Touch Focus for shooting photos and movies in Live View. To make capturing photos even easier, a Touch Shutter function can also be enabled, whereby selecting a subject on the LCD screen, the camera will instantly take a photo, once focus is locked.

For the first time in a Canon EOS DSLR, the EOS Rebel T4i includes Canon’s new Movie Servo AF for recording video. When used with Canon’s new EF and EF-S STM lenses, the camera can provide smooth and quiet continuous AF while recording video. The EOS Rebel T4i also features a built-in stereo microphone, a first for the Rebel line, that includes an attenuator function to reduce audio distortion in extra loud situations.
