Yesterday we reported on a very early stage rumor that Canon may be building an ultra-portable DSLR that packs the punch and form of a DSLR in a body the size of a mirrorless camera. The rumor has heat up overnight, and now there’s a first list of leaked specs that offer a better idea of what the camera may be like.
After weeks of speculation and a big picture and spec leak yesterday, the wait is finally over — the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D has finally arrived. Since the T3i release last year wasn’t anything to write home about, Canon have really tried to make the new rebel worth an upgrade, and they’ve done this mainly by introducing an upgraded AF system, capacitive touchscreen LCD and Movie Servo AF that works with the new STM lenses, which also debuted today.

Thus-far rumors about the Canon Rebel T4i/650D have been relegated to the “it’s definitely coming” category, but yesterday Canon Rumors posted a short spec list that they believe to be fairly accurate. The rumored specs as they now stand would have the new Rebel sporting an 18MP sensor, 9 cross-type AF points, a touchscreen LCD and, most impressively, continuous AF during video recording and in live view.
For the most part the specs fall somewhere between expected and interesting (9 cross-type AF points sound great but it seems strange that the Rebel line has been stuck with an 18-megapixel sensor for three generations now). The spec that has people really excited, however, is the possibility of a good continuous AF system for live view/video recording. Fortunately we won’t have to wait long to find out, since the T4i along with Canon’s first mirroless camera are both expected to be unveiled sometime next month.
Canon has just announced two new Rebel DSLRs, the Rebel T3 (aka 1100D) and the Rebel T3i (aka 600D). The entry-level T3 is a 12.2 megapixel camera with a 2.7-inch LCD screen, an ISO range of 100-6400, HD video recording, and a 9-point autofocus system. The T3i is a step up, offering many of the basic features of the T3, but also 18 megapixels of resolution, 3.7fps continuous shooting, built-in wireless flash control, and a swiveling 3-inch LCD screen. The T3 will be available at the end of March bundled with a 18-55mm kit lens for $600, while the T3i will be available a the beginning of March for $900 with the same lens, or $800 without.
Design firm XNcreative shot some photographs with a Canon Rebel 550D (T2i) while flying over various locations in the western US, but didn’t feel the still photos captured the original grandeur of the locations, so they decided to turn the stills into a motion-faked video. It was all done using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Apple Motion. You can find a walkthrough for how it was created here if you want to try your hand at this 3D effect.
