After the success of T2i and T3i models, Canon is coming up with a redesigned version EOS Rebel T4i to deliver a new photographic experience to the world. The new camera features an improved video focussing system and also EF-S 18-135mm and EF 40mm silent lenses which helps in improving image capturing and processing.
Canon Rebel T4i features an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor that can deliver good quality images. The camera can make use of phase detection as well as contrast-detection autofocus by pairing with any of the two STM lenses. Phase detection is used in the case of viewfinder and contrast-detection autofocus is used for the ‘LIVE view’.
The sensor’s centre portion makes use of traditional phase-detection technology in which the perimeter points helps in recognizing contrast within a scene, thereby helping to get the autofocus enabled with more accuracy. This would in turn help users to capture stills and video output both with same ease and clarity. The camera has a microphone input jack and a stereo mic. The new STM lenses offers silent zoom and focusing while capturing videos which prevents or reduces the mechanical voice produced by the sensitive stereo mics.
The autofocus performance of Canon Rebel T4i is quite impressive that it can give you quality images even in low lights. The other highlighting specs include 3-inch display which is smudge-resistant facilitated by multi touch functionality and 1.04-megapixel resolution. You can have easily access and use physical controls to pinch and also zoom images with just a few taps.
Even up to 5 consecutive frames per second can be captured in burst mode. The 1120mAh capacity LP-E8 battery supports average usage time as well. The camera also possesses interesting features like Handheld Night Scene and Multi-Shot Noise Reduction for better performance.
Canon Rebel T4i can be purchased by spending a spending around Rs. 43,000/-. If you are opting for an 18-55mm kit lens with this camera then you have to pay a total price of close to Rs. 50,000/-. If you are choosing an 18-135mm STM optic with the camera then you need to spend a higher price of around Rs. 60,000/-.
