The Canon EOS Rebel t4i has a number of attractive features which makes it a good investment for both professionals as well as those who make a hobby out of photography. Priced at anywhere from $999-$1,800 this camera is capable of taking exceptionally high-quality photos as well as video. One of the primary differences between this model and the T3i is that this one has a Live View shooting feature which has been vastly improved upon. With a much better streamlined design than the previous version, this camera has a lot to offer.
One of the drawbacks of the T4i in comparison to the T3i is the fact that its photo quality is not quite as good when set to high ISO sensitivity. The Live View autofocus, whether it is used for still photos or video footage, is definitely one of its most noteworthy features. The touch screen that the T4i comes with is a new feature which does not come with the T3i. The hybrid CMOS sensor which incorporates contract autofocus as well as phase-detection sensors is yet another new addition to this model camera which many photographers will enjoy.
When it comes to image quality, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i is able to deliver high quality images which are truly impressive. Those who have used its predecessor will however notice that the quality of the photos taken are not quite as good when put to high ISO sensitivities though. Images taken in the JPEG format have a remarkable quality up to ISO 400. Those who do not notice subtle differences in pixilation with the images they take will most likely not have a problem with this slight drawback. If however you are more discerning when it comes to pixilation, there is a chance that you will favor the T3i model when it is put to ISO sensitivities higher than 400.
The T4i handles colors fairly accurately, though this is not the case in the Auto Picture Style mode. This auto setting might seem nice at first glance, though you will be sacrificing detail when taking pictures in darker areas as well as those which are bright. There are however four different special-effect color settings to choose from, including auto, standard, neutral, and faithful. The standard setting is highly recommended for most environments, and it is certainly an improvement over auto.
Those who use the T4i will most likely notice that its overall performance is at least satisfactory. The sequential shooting mode for this particular camera is fairly quick, with 0.3 seconds for several JPEG shots, and an increasing of 0.8 seconds with the flash turned on. This camera’s AF system works well with a fast lens on wide apertures, though it does tend to focus in on the closest object in the shot. Although the Canon EOS Rebel T4i is not for everyone and does have a few things which can be improved upon with future models, it still offers quite a bit for the average photographer looking for a new camera.
