Canon Unveils New EOS Rebel T4i DSLR With Articulating Touch Screen

Canon logoCanon has announced the addition of the new DSLR camera to its lineup called the EOS Rebel T4i. The new camera is now the flagship of the EOS Rebel line and promises very impressive image quality and 18-megapixel resolution. The camera uses the Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor and can shoot continuous bursts at up to five frames per second.

Canon also notes that the camera has a new autofocus system that helps achieve fast and sharp focus while producing smooth HD resolution video recording. The autofocus system is a nine-point all cross-type sensor array. The CMOS sensor used in the camera is an APS-C size unit. The camera supports viewing video and still shots in Live View mode on the LCD.

The rear LCD on the camera is a three-inch Vari-Angle touchscreen offering touch controls for camera settings and video capability. Canon promises that this new camera is its most consumer friendly DSLR camera ever.

"Our 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 EOS Rebel T4i boasts full HD video with AF and touch-screen navigation, inspiring even more photographers and videographers to explore the creative options made possible with DSLR cameras and lenses," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.

The touch screen allows the user to touch the face of a person they want to focus on in the scene and the camera will remain focused on that person. The camera also has a Touch Shutter function that allows the user to touch the subject on the LCD and when focus is locked, the camera will automatically shoot an image.

The camera also has a number of other performance features and automated modes including handheld night scene and HDR backlight control. Other features include video snapshot, scene intelligent auto, and multishot noise reduction modes. One of the biggest features is the capability of the camera to record full HD movies with continuous autofocus.

Canon is announcing two new lenses to take advantage of this feature including the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens and new EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lenses. The camera will launch the end of June at an MSRP of $849.99 for the body. The body with the 18-55 mm lens will sell for $949.99. A special movie kit bundle will also be available with an 18 to 135mm lens for $1199.
