FAQs
Q: Does it include an owner's manual?
A: Yes.

Q: Does it have a flash?
A: Yes.

Q: Does this have face detection?
A: Yes.

Q: Does this have image stabilization/shake reduction?
A: 18-55mm IS lens has image stabilization; 75-300mm lens does not.

Q: What is image stabilization/shake reduction?
A: Canon Optical Image Stabilizer technology makes handheld photography more practical at slow shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before. This advanced technology uses miniature sensors and a high-speed microcomputer built into the lens. The sensors analyze vibrations and apply correction via a special stabilizing lens group that shifts the image parallel to the focal plane. Motion blur is canceled, resulting in a sharper image.

With Optical Image Stabilization, it's like gaining up to four stops. Canon Optical Image Stabilizer technology is built into many EF and EF-S lenses and outperforms in-camera stabilization technologies found in other cameras by allowing for more movement of the stabilizing lens group. Especially with telephoto lenses, as the lens focal length increases, the effect of shake and the degree of correction needed to cancel it increases as well. With the Optical Image Stabilizer in the lens, Canon can equip each IS lens with the stabilizer it needs for effective shake correction. Other systems are limited by how far they can move an image sensor, and as a result, their stabilization is less effective as telephoto lengths get longer. Also, the result of Optical Image Stabilization can be seen right in the viewfinder—impossible with some other stabilizer systems.

Q: What is Scene Intelligent Auto Mode?
A: The EOS Rebel T4i features an enhanced Scene Intelligent Auto mode that incorporates a number of Canon technologies to deliver the best possible exposure. Joining Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure, Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast, even whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod, and then chooses the exposure and enhancements that bring out the best in any scene or situation.

Camera Glossary

Camera Glossary

3x, 5x, 10x: Denotes the focal length ratio of a zoom lens; this is an optical, not digital zoom. See also Digital Zoom for more information.

AC Power: Running your digital camera off wall-outlet power rather than by battery power.

Add-on Lens: Some lenses have filter threads on the front edge that allow you to mount an auxiliary wide-angle or telephoto lens in addition to the standard lens.

AE (Auto Exposure): Auto Exposure, a system for automatically setting the proper exposure according to the existing light conditions. The most common types of AE systems:

  • Programmed: where the camera picks the best shutter speed and aperture automatically.
  • Program Shift: same as Programmed, plus the user can "shift" to other combinations of aperture and shutter-speed values.
  • Aperture Priority: the user chooses an aperture value, and the shutter speed is automatically determined by lighting conditions.
  • Shutter Priority: the user chooses a shutter speed and the aperture is automatically determined by lighting conditions.

AE Lock (Auto-Exposure Lock): The ability to hold the current exposure settings and allow you to point the camera elsewhere before capturing the image. This is usually accomplished by half-pressing the shutter button and keeping it at that position until you're ready to capture the image.

AF (Auto Focus): A system that automatically focuses the camera lens, usually when the shutter release is half-pressed.

Angle of View: The angle of view is calculated by the focal length of the lens and the size of the image sensor. Consumer digital-camera focal lengths are usually stated in terms of their 35mm-film equivalents. For digital SLR cameras with interchangeable lenses, it's more difficult as different cameras have different size sensors.

Aperture: The lens opening formed by the iris diaphragm inside the lens.

Aperture-Priority AE (Aperture-Priority Auto Exposure): Exposure is calculated based on the aperture value chosen by the photographer. This allows for depth of field (DOF; range of focus) control - large aperture = shallow DOF and a small aperture = deep DOF.

Aspect Ratio: The ratio of horizontal to vertical dimensions of an image. The most common aspect ratio in digital cameras is 4:3 so that images fit properly on computer screens (800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024) and standard TV screens. Many cameras offer a 3:2 mode so that you can print 4"x6" prints with no cropping necessary. There is also a 16:9 mode on some digital cameras for viewing on new widescreen HDTV displays.

Aspherical Lens: A lens with flattened edges (not a perfect spherical shape) that produces a superior image.

Automatic Exposure (AE): The camera automatically adjusts the aperture or shutter speed or both for the proper exposure.

Barrel Distortion: A common geometric lens distortion causing an acquired image to pucker toward the center and be rounded along the outer edges.

Bluetooth: A wireless standard for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices such as cameras, PDAs, notebooks, computers, and cell phones. Uses very high frequency radio waves. Bluetooth devices establish a connection when in-range (less than 30 feet of each other).

Bulb: A long-time exposure setting where the shutter stays open for as long as you keep the shutter-release button held down.

Burst Mode: The ability to rapidly capture images as long as the shutter button is held down. Also known as Continuous Frame Capture.

Card Reader: A device that allows you to insert flash memory cards in order to transfer data to the computer. See also PCMCIA and PC Card.

CCD (Charged Coupled Device): A light-sensitive chip used for image-gathering.

Center-Weighted: An auto-exposure system that uses the center portion of the image to adjust the overall exposure value. See also Spot Metering and Matrix Metering.

CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor): Another imaging system other than a charged coupled device used by digital cameras.

Color Balance: The accuracy with which the colors captured in the image match the original scene.

Color Correction: The process of correcting or enhancing the color of an image.

Continuous-Shooting Mode: A useful mode for taking shots where there is movement such as children playing, sports, animals, etc.

Compression: A digital photograph creates an image file that is very large in size (a low-resolution 640x480 image has 307,200 pixels). If each pixel uses 24 bits (3 bytes) for true color, a single image takes up about a megabyte of storage space. To make image files smaller, almost every digital camera uses some form of compression. See JPG.

CAF (Continuous Auto Focus): The auto-focus system is on full-time and works before the shutter release is pressed.

DOF (Depth of Field): The range of sharp focus, controlled by the focal length and aperture opening of the lens.

DIS (Digital Image Stabilization): An electronic method of minimizing the effect of camera shake during video recording.

Digital Zoom: A digital magnification of an image. Digital zoom is crops a portion of a captured image and then enlarges it back to size. Therefore, no image detail is gained by using digital zoom.

Diopter Adjustment: Adjusts the optical viewfinder's magnification factor to suit the eyesight of the user.

Download: Transferring image data from the camera to a computer using a cable attached to either the serial or USB port.

DPOF (Digital Print Order Format): Allows you to embed printing information on a memory card.

DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex): An interchangeable-lens digital camera.

Dynamic Range: A measurement of image accuracy in color or gray level. More bits of dynamic range result in finer gradations being preserved.

E-TTL/E-TTL II: Canon's flash-exposure system used on their digital SLRs. E-TTL II system captures the subject as a plane and ensures that images containing various colors and levels of reflection are captured accurately and optimally.

EV (Exposure Value): The ability to override the digital camera's auto-exposure system to lighten or darken an image.

EVF (Electronic Viewfinder): A small-color LCD with a magnified lens that functions as an eye-level viewfinder. Usually found on video camcorders, they can also be used on digital cameras where optical viewfinders are impractical beyond 4x.

EXIF (Exchangeable Image File format): The embedded camera and exposure information that a digital camera puts in the header of the JPG files it creates. Many graphic programs (Photoshop, ThumbsPlus, Qimage Pro, CameraAid) can read and display this information.

EXIF Print: Under EXIF, the digital camera can record data tags for specific camera settings and functions, such as whether the flash was on or off, if the camera was in landscape, portrait, or night-scene mode, etc. Referencing some or all of this information, an EXIF-print compatible application can process digital camera images intelligently based on specific camera settings and the shooting environment.

Exposure: The amount of light that reaches the image sensor and is controlled by a combination of the lens aperture and shutter speed.

Exposure Bracketing: The camera automatically takes a series of three or five pictures and slightly varies the exposure value for each frame. This insures that at least one of the pictures will be as close to perfectly exposed as possible.

Exposure Compensation: Allowing the lightening or darkening of an image by overriding the exposure system. Also known as EV Compensation or Exposure-Value Compensation.

F-Stop: A numerical designation that indicates the size of the aperture. It is inversely proportional as a smaller number, ex: F2.8 is a large opening and F16 is a relatively small opening.

Face Detection: This mode automatically finds and focuses on faces.

Fixed Aperture: Normally when a zoom lens goes from wide-angle to telephoto, the aperture changes. If the camera has an option to fix the aperture value, then it remains constant regardless of focal length.

Fixed Focal Length: A term that describes a non-zoom lens; it is fixed at a given focal length and not variable.

Fixed Focus: A lens that is preset to a given focus distance. It has no auto-focus mechanism to give the camera the maximum depth of field.

Flash: A built-in flash supplies auxiliary light to supplement natural or available lighting conditions often resulting in better color and exposure and improved picture sharpness.

Flash Memory: This is the "film" for digital cameras. It can be erased and reused many times. It is non-volatile memory where data is preserved even when it is not powered on. They are several major types used in digital cameras: CompactFlash, SmartMedia, and Memory Stick.

Focal Length: A lens' angle of view, most commonly indicated as wide angle, normal, or telephoto. The focal length of a lens is defined as the distance in mm from the middle of the lens to the focal point.

Focus Assist: Some cameras employ a visible or invisible (infrared) lamp to illuminate the subject so the auto focus can work in low light or total darkness.

Focus Lock: Pre-focusing the camera and then moving it to re-compose the image before capturing it. Accomplished by half-pressing the shutter button and keeping it held at that position while moving the camera to another point before pressing it all the way.

FOV (Field of View): The area covered by the lens' angle of view. This is important to those with a digital SLR camera using lenses designed for 35mm-film cameras. The manufacturers specify the field of view for these lenses when used on a 35mm camera, but not when they're used on a digital SLR camera.

Gigabyte (GB): A measure of computer memory or disk space consisting of about one thousand million bytes (a thousand megabytes). The actual value is 1,073,741,824 bytes (1,024 megabytes).

Histogram: A bar-graph analysis tool that can be used to identify contrast and dynamic range of an image. Histograms are found in the more advanced digital cameras and software programs (graphic editors) used to manipulate digital images.

Hot Shoe: A flash connector generally found on the top of the camera that lets you attach a flash unit and trigger it in sync with the shutter.

Hologram-Laser AF (Auto Focus): A new laser-assisted, auto-focus system that uses a safe class-1 laser to paint a grid on the subject that makes the auto focus fast and accurate.

Image Resolution: The number of pixels per unit length of an image.

Image Sensor: A traditional camera exposes a piece of light-sensitive film, while digital cameras use an electronic image sensor to gather the image data. Refer to CCD and CMOS.

Image Stabilization (IS): An optical system for removing or reducing camera movement in zoom lenses. Using gyroscopes, an internal lens is moved around to counteract the movement of the camera. This usually allows someone to shoot at two to three stops slower than a camera without image stabilization under the same conditions. Also refer to Digital IS.

Interval Recording: Capturing a series of images at preset intervals. Also known as time-lapse.

IR (Infrared): Also known as IrDA. Uses an invisible beam of light to either wirelessly control a device or as a method of transferring data from camera to computer (or printer) without cables. Some cameras also employ infrared in the auto-focusing system.

ISO (International Standards Organization): The speed or specific light-sensitivity of a camera is rated by ISO numbers such as 100, 400, etc. The higher the number, the more sensitive it is to light. As with film, the higher speeds usually induce more electronic noise so the image gets grainier.

JPG: The most common type of compressed-image file format used in digital cameras.

Landscape Mode: Holding the camera in its normal horizontal orientation to capture the image. Also see Portrait Mode.

LCD (Liquid-Crystal Display): There are two types: (1) a TFT high-resolution color display device like a tiny TV set. (2) A monochrome (black and white) information display using black alphanumeric characters on a gray/green background.

LED (Light-Emitting Diode): Small red, green, and yellow indicator lights used on cameras, power supplies, and most electronic devices.

Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion): A rechargeable battery pack found on some digital cameras. Lithium batteries are lighter than NiMH or NiCd rechargeable cells and can be recharged regardless of their state of discharge. They're lighter in weight, maintain a better charge in colder temperatures, and last longer when idle.

Macro: The ability of a lens to focus very close (less than 8") for taking pictures of small objects at a 1:1 ratio.

mAh (Milliamps Hour): A rating used in the consumption of power of an electronic device such as an LCD or the storage capability of a device like a NiMH or Nicad rechargeable battery.

Matrix Metering: In most digital cameras, there is a matrix metering option which uses 256 areas of the frame to calculate the best overall exposure value. Also refer to Spot Metering and Center-Weighted.

MB (MegaByte): Memory term meaning 1,024 Kilobytes. Used to denote the size of a flash memory card such as 4MB, 8MB etc.

MegaOIS: Optical image stabilization system used on some digital cameras.

Megapixel: Charged coupled device resolution of one million pixels. Digital cameras are commonly rated by megapixels, multiplying the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution to get the total pixel count. Megapixel sizes:

  • 3264 x 2448 = 8 Megapixels
  • 3872 x 2592 = 10 Megapixels
  • 4290 x 2800 = 12 Megapixels
  • 4920 x 3264 = 16 Megapixels
  • 5184 x 3456 = 18 Megapixels

Memory Card: There are different types such as CompactFlash, Secure Digital (SD), Mini SD, and XD cards, as well as a Memory Stick.

Memory Stick: A flash memory card. It resembles a stick of gum.

Metering: Used to calculate the exposure from the existing light conditions. See: Matrix Metering, Spot Metering, and Center-Weighted.

mm (millimeter): Measurement to denote the focal length of a lens (i.e. 50mm).

MMC (MultiMedia Card): A flash memory card used in some digital cameras and MP3 players. It is identical in size and shape to SD flash cards.

Modes: Not all cameras have every one listed below:

  • Automatic mode: camera makes all the decisions about the photo.
  • Flash Off: keeps the flash off.
  • Creative Auto: user adjusts picture style, motor drive, and exposure compensation.
  • Portrait: focuses on the person, not the background.
  • Landscape: allows for as much of the screen to be in focus.
  • Macro: captures close-up, in-focus photos.
  • Sports: shoots moving objects.
  • Night: captures more background details with a longer shutter speed.
  • Snow: shoots with bright lighting in the snow.
  • Fireworks: shoots fireworks.
  • Shutter-Priority AE: allows the user to select a shutter speed and the camera to select the aperture.
  • Aperture-Priority AE: gives precise control of the aperture setting, regulating the amount of light that passes through the lens.
  • Manual Exposure: allows control of every setting manually.
  • Bulb Exposure: provides long exposure under the direct control of the photographer.

MOV: A common multimedia video file format often used for saving movies and other video files developed by Apple®, compatible with both Mac® and Windows platforms. Known as Apple QuickTime® MOVie format. See Movie Clip.

Movie Clip: A sequence of motion captured in AVI, MOV, or MPEG format. Some digital cameras can capture short movie sequences, and some can also record the sound.

MP (MegaPixel): Abbreviation for MegaPixel, i.e. 1.5MP or 1.5MPixel.

MPEG (Motion JPEG movie file): Also refer to Movie Clip. The digital-video compression standard agreed upon by the Motion Picture Expert Group from the motion picture-computer industry. MPEG-2 is used by most camcorders and MPEG-4 (a higher compression ratio) is popular with digital cameras that offer motion video recording.

Multi-Point Focusing: The auto-focus system uses several different portions of the image to determine the proper focus.

Multi-Zone Focusing: Many digital cameras now offer multi-zone focusing. The camera will automatically determine which zone (center, left, right, upper, lower) to use to perform the auto focusing. You do not have to make sure the subject is dead-center to be properly focused.

NiCd: Nickel Cadmium (aka Nicad), a type of rechargeable battery. Nicad was the original type of rechargeable battery and has been mostly replaced by the NiMH version.

NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride): A type of rechargeable battery. NiMH is the more modern type of rechargeable battery and has been touted as having no memory effect (as is common with Nicad-type batteries when they are charged before being fully discharged). NiMH may also be called NiHy.

Noise: Pixels in your digital image that are misinterpreted. Usually occurs when you shoot a long exposure (beyond .5 seconds) or when you use the higher ISO values from 400 or above. It appears as random groups of red, green, or blue pixels.

Noise Reduction (NR): Some cameras that offer long shutter speeds (exceeding 1 second) usually have a noise-reduction feature that is either automatic or can be enabled in the menu. This helps eliminate random hot pixels and other image noise.

OEM (Original-Equipment Manufacturer): The piece of equipment is made by one company but labeled for and sold by another organization.

Optical Image Stabilization (OIS): Most commonly found in higher-end digital SLR telephoto and telezoom lenses. OIS uses a spinning gyroscope and lens element to counteract camera movement and handshake at longer focal lengths and lower shutter speeds.

Optical Viewfinder: An eye-level viewfinder that is used to compose the photograph.

Optical Zoom: A real multi-focal-length camera lens. This is not the same as Digital Zoom which magnifies the center portion of the picture. The higher the optical zoom on your camera, the farther away you can take a clear, close-up image.

Panorama: Capturing a series of images to create a picture wider than what you could capture in a single image. Requires special stitching software to combine and blend the images into one finished image.

PictBridge: A standard for direct USB printing from digital cameras to inkjet and dye-sub photo printers without the use of a computer.

Pixel: The individual imaging element of a charged coupled device or the individual output point of a display device. This is what is meant by the figures 640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1280 x 960, etc. when dealing with resolution of a particular digital camera. The higher the resolution numbers, the better quality.

PNG (Portable-Network Graphics): An image file format. It is a compressed file format similar to JPG.

Point and Shoot: A term used for a simple, easy-to-use camera with a minimum of user controls. Generally turn on the camera, aim it at the subject, and press the shutter button. The camera does everything automatically.

Polarizing Filter: A filter than helps eliminate light reflections by limiting the angle of light that reaches the lens. There are two types: linear and circular. Linear type filters should not be used with digital cameras as they hinder the auto-focus system. The circular type filters can be rotated to adjust to the light angle needed.

Pre-Flash: Some digital cameras use a low-power flash before the main flash to set the exposure and white balance.

Programmed AE (Auto Exposure): The camera picks the best shutter speed and aperture automatically. Also called Automatic or Point and Shoot mode.

RAW: Files that store the unprocessed image data from the camera's imaging chip to its memory storage device.

Red-Eye: An effect caused by an electronic flash reflecting off of the human eye and making it appear red.

Red-Eye Reduction Mode: A special flash mode whereby a pre-flash or a series of low-powered flashes are emitted before the main flash goes off to expose the picture. This causes the pupil in the human eye to close and helps eliminate red-eye.

Resolution: The quality of any digital image—whether printed or displayed on a screen—depends in part on its resolution. Resolution is the number of pixels used to create the image. More and smaller pixels add detail and sharpen edges.

Scene Modes: Many digital cameras have an exposure mode called scene where the user selects the best pre-programmed scene to suit the current shooting conditions.

SD (Secure Digital) Card: SD cards are the most popular type of flash memory card used in digital cameras. Identical in size and shape to the MultiMedia Card (MMC) flash cards. The difference: SD cards were designed to hold protected, copyrighted data like songs. Not all cameras that use SD cards can use MMC cards.

SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity Cards): Allows capacities in excess of 2GB (4GB to 64GB) and uses the same form factor as SD cards, but is not compatible with older, non-SDHC devices.

Self-Timer: Preset time delay usually 2, 5, or 10 seconds before the shutter fires. This allows the photographer to get into the picture without using a cable release or remote control. It is also good for taking macro shots as you don't touch the camera to trip the shutter, eliminating any camera shake.

Sepia: The brown mono-toned images from the past that are now found as a special image effect on some digital cameras.

Shake Reduction: Minimizes the effect of camera shake.

Shutter: The physical device that opens and closes to let light from the scene strike the image sensor. Digital cameras use both electronic and mechanical shutters.

Shutter Lag: The time between pressing the shutter and actually capturing the image. This is due to the camera having to calculate the exposure, set the white balance, and focus the lens.

Shutter-Priority AE (Auto Exposure): The photographer chooses a shutter speed and the aperture is automatically determined by lighting conditions. Shutter speed priority is used to control motion capture. A fast shutter speed stops fast action, and a slow shutter speed blurs a fast moving subject.

Slow Sync: A flash mode in some digital cameras that opens the shutter for longer than normal and fires the flash just before it closes. Used for illuminating a foreground subject, yet allowing a darker background to also be rendered. Good for nighttime shots of buildings with people in the foreground. Often called Night Scene or Night Portrait mode.

SLR (Single-Lens Reflex): The camera has a viewfinder that sees through the lens with an angled mirror (that flips up when the shutter fires) and allows the light to strike the image sensor.

Spot Metering: The camera's auto-exposure system focuses on a very small area in the center of the viewfinder to critically adjust the overall exposure value only for that area.

Stitching: Combining a series of images to form a larger image or a panoramic photo. Requires special graphic software.

SuperCCD: An image sensor used in some digital cameras.

Telephoto: The focal length that gives you the narrowest angle of coverage, works well for bringing distant objects closer.

TFT (Thin-Film Transistor): Refers to the type of hi-resolution color LCD screen used in digital cameras.

Thumbnail: A small, low-resolution version of a larger image file that is used for quick identification or speedy editing choices.

TIFF (Tagged-Image File Format): An uncompressed image file format that is lossless and produces no artifacts like other image formats such as JPG.

Time-Lapse: Capturing a series of images at preset intervals. Also called Interval Recording or Intervalometer.

True Color: Color that has a depth of 24-bits per pixel and a total of 16.7 million colors.

USB (Universal Serial Bus): Data in/out port on most digital cameras. Found on modern PC and Mac® computers. Faster than a serial port.

UV Filter: This is an Ultraviolet-absorbing filter that helps overcome the abundance of blue in outdoor photographs. Not really necessary in digital photography as the camera's white balance system adjusts for the color temperature of the scene. Can be used to protect the camera's lens from scratching, fingerprints, or dirt.

Video Out: A digital camera being able to output its images on television screens and monitors using either NTSC or PAL format.

Viewfinder: The eye-level device you look through to compose the image.

White Balance: Adjusting the relative brightness of the red, green, and blue components so that the brightest object in the image appears white. Also see AWB.

Wide Angle: The focal length that gives you the widest angle of coverage.

Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity): Using the same IEEE 802.11b/g protocol as wireless networks for computers, digital cameras can transmit images to a computer, printer, or between cameras.

Zoom Lens: A variable focal length lens. The most common on digital cameras has a 3:1 ratio (i.e. 35-105mm).

E223217 - Canon Rebel T4i DSLR 18MP Camera w/ 2 Lenses, Bag & SD Card 4.8 5 56 56
Feel Like A Pro Photographer I bought this camera to take on a week tour of New England (all six states) and brought back some of the most gorgeous photographs...the colors are vibrant and detail is amazing....its like taking the vacation all over again each time I look at the photos. Honestly the pictures are good enough for publication.. . I'm taking a photographers workshop class at our local community collge and I really believe I have the best camera in the class! So many features and yet so easy to use! The camera bag is perfect in that it protects the camera AND is light to carry and compartments are easy to access! Just a perfect purchase! I would buy this camera again in a heartbeat! What a bargain I received too! 02-26-13
WHAT A CAMERA SIMPLY THE BEST!!! ALL THE FIVE STARS, REVIEW AND I WOULD ADD FIVE MORE. I CAN NOT WAIT TO USED THIS ON MY VACATION, EVENTS ETC... WHAT MORE CAN I SAY JUST TOUCH CLICK AND HAVE FUN WITH THIS GREAT CAMERA....THANKS QVC 01-04-13
Outstanding When I received my Canon I was breath taken. It was everything that I expected my first use it was so easy to use. The after product was exceptional. Nobody can go wrong with this product. 01-02-13
Love Love Love this camera!! I purchased this camera in October for my children's sporting events. I was tired of getting blobs of color and only being able to take pictures when the team was standing still. I did alot of research on cameras/lens for sports photography. Wasn't really sure this was the way to go but in no way could afford the cameras/lenses being suggested. Let me tell you....this camera and lens takes excellant sports photos. They look like you are right out in the pile on the football field....right on the court ready to jump for the basketball. You can see the facial expressions, the detail on the uniforms... the action no more photos of the team standing still. I have used it for high school football and basketball as well as elementary basketball games. It's great for for portraits and in macro mode. It's easy to use. Easy to upload the photos. Easy to review the photos on the camera. I have not used the video mode yet. It's light weight. I like the rechargable battery. The first time I used it I took over a thousand pictures by the third quarter of the football game and the battery went dead so if you really really like to take pictures I would suggest getting more than one battery! 12-22-12
Excellent Best camera I ever had,and I've had a few. It is second to none. 12-19-12
Low light is OUTSTANDING, auto focus during movies I spoke, at length, to a Canon representative before making this purchase through QVC (who has this amazing deal, much lower price than from Canon, I assure you!) I learned, after purchase, that this is a NEW camera launched in June of 2012 -- which means it is THE BEST in the Rebel Series. There are different lines of Canon cameras aimed at the amateur (the Rebel Series), intermediate, and professional. For me, I am not making money with my photographs so to go into the very high - end range makes NO sense. I have never had issues with my Rebel camera photos and have been shooting with them since the film camera versions. This is a replacement for my Xti, which I have had for at least 5 years (and was the latest and greatest at the time). This camera has also got built in video (HD) which previous cameras did not. Even their newer upper model cameras come with video capability. I was not happy about this, I want money spent on a camera to make better photos, not video -- but I was told by the Canon rep that all of their SLR digital cameras are being made with video, now, as they are selling and customer demand has shown it is preferred to have the 2 in one. Also, with this camera, it is the only one in this series (you would have to ask if any higher end cameras have this - but I think he said (canon guy) this was the first) to have automatic focus during video shooting. Typically, if your camera has video, you focus on a certain point and - whether you can zoom in and out during video or not - the focal point remains the same. With THIS camera, the focus will change!! If your subject comes closer to you, the camera will adjust to that. The problem with this is that the noise heard from the machinery changing the focus (as you hear when it changes for a photo) can be heard on the video. However, another reviewer was kind enough to give a tip of using MANUAL focus during video to help lessen this issue. I have to say with this camera's low light ability, I have been astonished at it's ability to capture things without a flash. I am no pro, but typically shoot in Program mode (P). If you shoot in auto, the flash might pop up -- so I shoot most shots in P indoors and I get very beautiful detai lwith this camera. In fact, the low light is kind of freaking me out and I have to play around and learn to get it to where I want it. I did a lot of practice shots, including a photo where my daughter had just come out of a pool and was standing in my hallway at night, with no lights except some illumination of a bathroom light nearby. I shot the photo in Program Mode with no flash and when the image appeared, there was MORE LIGHT in the photo than there was in real life. It looked almost like day time. I could see all of the little beads of water on her skin, I was blown away. I am pretty good at keeping extremely still while holding a camera and shooting in lower light, knowing that movement can cause blur, and this photo came out crisp and clean as they come. I went around the house trying to take shots of everything I could in rooms without lights to see what I came up with, and sometimes there was too little for it to focus on auto mode, but when it did?? You'd never know there was no lilght. I always prefer the natural shadows and tones of no flash to using a flash, so this camera is perfect for me. Of course there are instances where you really need that flash to stop movement (what flash does) but -- for instance, my daughter had a birthday this month and the photos I took (program mode! And never changed a setting, just turned the dial to P) of her with the cake and candles is amazing. I asked her to do them slowly so as not to create blur, but even the smoke rising from the candles is so clear in the shot ... I am blown away. ALSO, the meteor shower last night? If a meteor had crossed the frame, I could have shot it. I have set it to my comfortable P mode and shot the stars (and I live in the suburbs outside of a city with many lights) and end up seeing MORE stars in the shot than I was able to with the naked eye. I have to focus on a very bright star, first (well, planet) to get the auto focus to kick in, then I just set it to manual so the focus does not change and I can shoot all over the sky. People can't believe they can see the stars in these shots. Even the clouds in the sky come out brighter, when they are crossing during a shoot. That's one thing that has me a little perplexed is taking shots and them coming out so much lighter when using the low light. I found that taking photos of my husband putting up Christmas lights? Amazing. In real life it was so dark he was nothing but a black silhouette. In program mode? He is illuminated by the lights. Of course if you don't want that, you can set your ISO (remember film speed on film cameras? Digital doesn't really have film speed, but so as not to confuse us - they have settings that match the old film speeds so we can choose our lighting preference -- this is something even the most ametaur photog can do with ease). So remember the old film cameras, you typically bought what, 100 speed film? Maybe 200 for flash indoors? Or if you really wanted to go nuts, you bought the most expensiv e type, the 1600 low light capability film and played by taking photos of your friends by candle light to see how they would turn out? Well, my old Xti went up to 1600. THIS camera? In the 6 THOUSANDS, expandable (yet I have not tried) to like 12000. I can't even comprehend that. So THIS explains the amazing low light capability of this camera. Holy smackerals, folks, it sure did pay off that I waited those few extra years to replace my camera because I will be using this one for years to come. I can't wait to see what they will have in 5 MORE years from now, but until then, I know I will be happy with this purchase. I admit I have not, yet, used the zoom lens -- I already own a 300MM Canon zoom, but I know that the one I already own I absolutely love -- I live in Florida and being able to take close up shots of wild alligators without ACTUALLY being "close up" is amazing. The only thing they could have really done to make this deal even sweeter was throw in some sort of monopod or something to help you keep still in low light conditions. I plan on going right back out tonight and attempt to catch my meteor. I will not give up, and this camera has the capability of capturing it if I am lucky enough to have it pointed in the right direction and have a "shooting star" pass through the frame. OH, and the auto button -- how could I leave this out?? With my Xti, I always, ALWAYS had the most difficult time with the AUTO outside. I mean, really a hard time. I could not really use auto outside. In bright sunlight, of course the shadows were too harsh. So I always had to go into a program or manual mode and every time we moved (say at a birthday party) to under a tree or maybe under a DIFFERENT tree or in sunlight, I had to go nuts trying to figure out how to set the camera so it wasn't too light, too dark (and sometimes it was, anyway). Again, NOT a professional, so I don't know how to do these changes quickly -- so it's a lot of trial and error and photos lost in the process. With THIS camera? I was outside in partial shade and a bright noon sky above -- and I thought I'd have to do the old Xti trick and use Program mode, and my pics were too light. Although skeptical, I turned it to "auto" and - WOW, the camera knew what to do!! I captured really fun pics of my daughter and her friends outside at a park, with shade trees that were letting in droplets of sunlight through the leaves and EVERY photo was absolutely perfectly lit. I could see the dark spots perfectly and the spots of sunlight through the trees came out as if I had a clue as to what I was doing!! Smart camera, way outshines my old Xti Rebel camera. It was my first time shooting outdoors with the camera and I must say, except when I was naughty and used P mode, there is not a photo shot that day that needed a single correction as far as exposure. And I shot in shade, partial shade, and in full, bright sunlight along a beach. Every exposure was as it should be. Amazed. GET THIS CAMERA. And QVC? I have sent this link to numerous people, I will accept a check as my commission ;-P ENJOY THIS NEW CAMERA! Trust me, I looked all over -- you will not find this amazing deal with the 6 monthly payments, to boot, anywhere else!! 12-14-12
Love, Love, Love! The Canon EOS is one of the best full-size cameras EVER! I had the regular film version and then decided to convert to the digital one. It is awesome. The extra long lense was amazing at taking photos at lacrosse and softball games. Really got up close and personal. It is easy to use and has all the various options you need for close-ups, full-out pictures, etc. 12-14-12
The Best Purchase Ever I absolutely love this camera, I am in the processes of opening my own photography business and this is the camera that I am using to start it. It is an amazing camera all around, I would definitely recommend this camera and any other canon products to anybody. 12-08-12
Great Camera I purchased this camera. Then I saw the Canon T3i TSV, so I purchased it. Both cameras are great. But the T3i was quite a bite cheaper and very little difference in the cameras. So I returned the T4i. I would highly recommend both cameras. I love mine. 12-04-12
Thank You QVC Love this camera! Easy to use and is awesome quality! Thanks to QVC and their easy pay we got it in time to take with us to Hawaii!!! 12-02-12
Great value and performance This is my first "new" DSLR purchase, but not my first Canon DSLR. I opted for the T4i with the enhanced video capability in addition to the picture taking. Touch screen helps alot so you don't have to futz with the menu button all the time and the quality is top notch. Solid, feels good in the hand. It's a great value for the bundle and the price. I wish they had bundles with the new STM lenses that support the new video focusing capability of the T4i. 11-28-12
Awesome Love the camera, very lite and takes awesome pictures. My wife loves it more then I. 11-24-12
