Canon Rebel T4i Designed for Video

At first glance the specs of the Canon Rebel T4i look nearly the same as its predecessor the Canon EOS Rebel T3i. But if you look closer, you will see some significant differences that make this a much better camera for video.

While it records 1080p30 with stereo sound using internal or external microphones, the real news is the Continuous AutoFocus in movie mode. It is both silent and fast when using one of the new Canon linear stepper motors (STM.) These lenses can continuously track and keep focus on a moving subject in movie mode. The Canon 18-135 (f3.5 – 5.6) STM is one of the kit lenses. It also features image stabilization. Another new lens is the 40mm f2.8 STM pancake lens.

The Canon Rebel t4i is the first DSLR to include a touchscreen that works like those found in smartphones. You can pinch to zoom. But unlike some touchscreens, you have the choice to control the camera using the normal controls or use the touchscreen.

The sensitivity has been increased to ISO 12,800 and to record video, you need fewer steps so it is more direct on this camera than on the T3i.

The camera is available now for pre-order with delivery later in June. The camera body only is $849 through Amazon. Read the full specs at the Amazon link below
