Canon EOS Rebel T4i
Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR camera : One of the most significant upgrades to the Canon EOS Rebel T4i is a upgraded autofocus system including a nine-point all cross-type AF array, with a high-precision dual-cross f/2.8 point at center. The Canon EOS Rebel T4i is the first EOS camera to feature the new Hybrid CMOS autofocus system which increases AF speed by reducing the camera’s need to “hunt” for focus. The result is fast continuous AF when shooting photos and videos in Live View. Because the camera’s cross-type AF points have two-dimensional contrast detection, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i provides highly accurate focus regardless of your shot composition and ensures great focus no matter where the subject is located in the frame. |
Canon EOS Rebel T4i touch operation
Using the touch LCD panel, parents can select their child on the LCD screen and the Canon EOS Rebel T4i 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 screen, the camera will instantly take a photo, once focus is locked.
HD Video Recording with the Canon T4i
For the first time in a EOS Digital SLR, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i includes a new Movie Servo AF for recording video. When used with Canon’s new EF and EF-S STM lenses, the Canon EOS Rebel camera can provide smooth and quiet continuous AF while recording video. This technological breakthrough enables the Canon EOS Rebel T4i camera to achieve autofocus while still retaining a DSLR camera’s signature background blur and image quality, producing stunning videos of parties, events, summer vacations or graduations.
Canon EOS Rebel T4i Video Snapshots
Families have enjoyed coming home from a vacation or outing with a fun, short Video Snapshot highlight reel shot on their Canon camera to share the full story of their adventure. Now with the Canon EOS Rebel T4i camera users will also have the option to delete, cut or re-order the clips before exporting the Snapshot album to post or share. When recording HD video with Canon’s STM lenses, AF also remains silent, helping ensure you only capture the sound of the scene being recorded. The Canon EOS Rebel T4i 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.

“The Canon EOS Rebel line of cameras bridges the gap between the casual photographer and someone looking to advance their photography and capture moments in new and creative ways. The Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR camera boasts full HD video with AF and touch-screen navigation, inspiring even more photographers and videographers to explore the creative possibilities made possible with Digital SLR cameras and lenses,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon USA.
