18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, 14-bit A/D conversion, ISO 100-12800; expandable to 25600 (H) for shooting from bright to dim light.
Digic 5 Processor
This processor allows users to perform full HD video recording continuously at various frame rates. These processors also promise you a solution to the problems that often arise about the noise when using high ISO sensitivity.
Enhanced EOS Full HD Movie mode with Movie Servo AF for continuous focus tracking of moving subjects, manual exposure control and multiple frame rates (1080: 30p (29.97) / 24p (23.976) / 25p, 720: 60p (59.94) / 50p, 480: 30p (29.97) / 25p)
9-point Cross-Type Autofocus
Canon says that they provide Auto Focus (AF) which is faster and more accurate in capturing a focus of an object. This is possible because the Canon has updated their AF system by using the 9 AF points with Croos-type technology.
Improved autofocus performance with a 9-point all cross-type AF system (including a high-precision dual-cross f/2.8 center point), and new Hybrid CMOS AF increases autofocus speed when shooting photos and movies in Live View
For a photo shoot that requires a high ISO setting. Canon T4i feel a little more advanced when compared to the ‘big brother’ the EOS 600D. The ISO owned by Canon EOS 650D/4Ti is 100 to 12,800.
AUTO HDR Backlight Control mode
The EOS Rebel T4i’s HDR Backlight Control mode ensures that backlit subjects are not recorded too dark. By shooting three consecutive shots at different exposures (underexposed, correctly exposed and overexposed) and then combining the images, the final result maintains detail in both the shadow and highlight areas, ensuring the backlit subject is properly exposed.
