I know the Canon 700D has been announced for release on the 11th of July, now maybe a great time to grab a discount 650D before they get withdrawn from stock, I've looked at the specs of the 650D and the 700D and there's little in them, the Canon 650D is currently Canon's best selling camera and it's easy to see why it's a great model with fantastic quality!

HD Cameras have it on sale for $639, with the Kit lens 18-55 decent for starting out.

Canon EOS 650D + EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II


The Canon EOS 650D also known as the Rebel T4i Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens is an ideal camera for any level photographer; combining both high quality imaging power and a wealth of functions that enable you to create beautiful imagery with ease. This 18.0 megapixel DSLR features an APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor for fast operation and tremendous low light performance to an expanded ISO of 25600. A quickened 5.0fps continuous shooting ability and fast 9-point cross-type AF system are also supported by the performance of the DIGIC 5 processor. This combination of technologies also results in tremendous image quality with smooth color gradations and clarity for both images and videos.

Full HD 1080p video is supported and features a full-time Movie Servo AF system for continuous auto focusing while using live view to record movies. When using one of Canon's STM lenses, ultra-quiet and smooth performance is possible for fluid HD movie making. Additionally full manual sound and exposure control is supported, giving you a wide range of controls for handling your videos. For monitoring of videos and still imaging, a 3.0" Vari-angle touch screen LCD is incorporated and flips out and tilts for viewing from a wide variety of angles. The touch screen operation is highly intuitive and even allows you to control your focus points from the LCD.

The Scene Intelligent Auto Mode combines the essential auto modes with an intelligent EOS Scene Detection System to quickly and automatically determine the situation type you are working in and apply the necessary adjustments to render the scene correctly. Once the image has been captured, it will also apply enhancing techniques in order to improve skin tones and overall image coloration. Other creative modes include an HDR Backlight Control mode for improving the effective exposure value range of your image; a Handheld Night Scene mode which utilizes multi shot noise reduction techniques to give you improved low-light performance without the noise of high ISOs; and seven different creative filters to apply unique effects directly to your images in-camera.

The Rebel T4i is compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards and Canon's full line of EF and EF-S lenses.

18.0 Megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor

The 18.0MP APS-C sensor provides high image quality and rich files exhibiting smooth color gradations, exceptional clarity and tonal range. It maximizes the light-gathering efficiency of each pixel and features center pixels that assist the Rebel T4i in delivering accurate AF performance. The maximum resolution affords plenty of room to make well-sized enlargements or crop into your images to focus on the details. The APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view when compared to full-frame 35mm format. Still Image Resolution

  • Max: 17.9 MP: 5184 x 3456
  • Medium: Approx. 8.00 Megapixels (3,456 x 2,304)

  • Small 3: Approx. 350,000 Pixels (720 x 480)
  • RAW: Approx. 17.90 Megapixels (5,184 x 3,456)

DIGIC 5 Image Processor

The DIGIC 5 image processor also helps to provide excellent image quality and high speed across the entire camera, enabling 5.0 fps continuous capture. This expedited processing helps to increase low-light sensitivity from ISO 100 to 12800 (and to an expanded ISO of 25600) while effectively reducing noise levels. This makes shooting possible in situations where it was previously unthinkable to shoot without flash. Paired with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses featuring Optical Image Stabilizer, the Rebel T4i is capable of recording gorgeous images even when light is scarce. The processor works with the CMOS sensor to create images with remarkable detail in a greater number of situations, without requiring artificial light sources. It enables the camera to perform sophisticated functions such as HDR Backlight Control, art filters, lens correction and much moreThe Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Autofocus Lens is a standard zoom lens that features the smaller size image circle, exclusively designed for EOS Digital Rebel and other cameras using the "APS-C" size sensor. The focal length is equivalent to approx. 28-90mm in 35mm format. This makes it ideal as a basic everyday lens.
This lens features Canon's optical Image Stabilizer technology, which provides up to 3-4 stop compensation for image blur caused by camera shake and slow shutter speeds. This ensures clear, crisp images, even in dim light.
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors. An exclusive optional lens hood can further reduce the incidence of flare.
