The Live View button is within easy reach of your right thumb. Using this button it is easy to enter Live View, but it takes a surprising amount of time for the camera to actually display the live image (think several seconds). A grid line display and very useful live histogram can be enabled to help with composition and exposure, and you can zoom in by up to 10x magnification of the image displayed on the LCD screen. Focusing in Live View via a half-press of the shutter release as normal. Canon has exceeded expectations to deliver touchscreen functionality that actually changes the whole user experience, rather than one that just allows certain functions to be selected via the screen. In fact, the only minor niggle we have are that the on-screen controls are relatively small, which might make operation slightly hard work for anyone with sausage-like fingers. a b c Westlake, Andy (June 2012).

The camera’s built-in noise reduction only advisable if JPEGs are not destined being viewed at their full size – if they are, the blurring effects are too apparent. The 650D’s image processor has also been upgraded to the DIGIC 5 version, and while this isn’t quite as fast as the DIGIC 5 processor used in Canon’s flagship EOS 1Dx and 5D Mark III models, it does offer a six-fold increase in processing speeds over the old DIGIC 4. Sensitivity, meanwhile, ranges from ISO 100-12,800 in standard mode, with an extended mode of ISO 25,600 making the 650D a stop faster than its predecessor. Westlake, Andy (June 2012).

Like the 600D, in normal shooting mode the 650D uses nine-point phase detection AF. However, all of these points are cross-type on the 650D - the 600D only has one cross-type AF point, at the centre of the frame – so you'll increase your success rate when focusing with the 650D's new AF system. The flash settings on the EOS 650D / T3i are Auto, Manual Flash On/Off, and Red-Eye Reduction. These shots of a white coloured wall were taken at a distance of 1m.

Digital Photography Review . Retrieved 11 June 2012. The Canon EOS 650D has taken beginner-enthusiast D-SLRs to the next level. Although it 'only' has an 18-megapixel sensor, image quality is great, and high ISO performance is strong. Thanks to the Digic 5 processor, it will also blast off 5fps to help you keep up with fast-moving subjects. Plus there's the lovely adjustable touch-screen tech to enhance the user experience.

In summary the new 650D / Rebel T4i is the most complicated yet friendly mid-range Canon DSLR yet, truly a camera that you can grow into as your photography skills develop. It only misses out on our highest Essential award because of the still slow Live View auto-focusing and a small price increase over the 600D, but is more than deserving of our still-coveted Highly Recommended award. As might be expected JPEGs come out slightly sharper and more finely detailed than their Raw counterparts and contrast also receives a slight boost too. Thankfully though Canon hasn’t been too aggressive with its default sharpening settings. If you’re buying the Canon EOS 650D with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit zoom, be aware that some softness is noticeable at either end of the focal range particularly when used at its widest apertures. Distortion and chromatic aberrations also make themselves known. There are a number of drive modes available on the Canon EOS 650D / T4i. These include Single Shot, Continuous Shooting, Self-timer and Remote Controlled Shooting. In Continuous Shooting mode, the camera can take pictures at a speed of 5 frames per second for up to 22 Large Fine JPEGs or 6 raw files, a faster rate than the 600D, but for less JPEG images.Westlake, Andy (June 2012).
