Just one short day away from the official release, massive leaks have sprung regarding Canon’s new Rebel T4i. Courtesy of Canon Rumors, we now have a full list of specs for the T4i/650D. As previously rumored, the camera will indeed sport an 18-megapixel APS-C sensor, articulating touchscreen LCD, 9 cross-type AF points and a better “hybrid” AF system for live view and video recording. But the specs we hadn’t yet heard of include: ~5fps continuous shooting, ISO 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600), and the same viewfinder and metering system found in the previous Rebel T3i. Read more…
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.
