Canon EOS 650D Body Only (3069)
The Canon EOS 650D is a digital single lens reflex camera with 18 megapixels. It has a 3-inch LCD II touch screen that is vari-angle and is best for landscape, portrait and even group pictures that include you. Photo shooting above head level or at very low levels are possible because of this rotatable screen. The touch screen spares the user from too many buttons to press. This touch feature can be disabled or turned off if you don’t need it. To enable it, the “tap to fire” can be pressed. There’s a need to turn off this feature to avoid touching the screen and making unnecessary commands. Sometimes even your nose can make a command when you are trying to focus the lens. The menu has a long list of setting options that are kind of mind boggling to beginners but with the clear touch screen, selecting feels easy and smooth. Canon included a new automatic shooting mode for beginners and maintained the comprehensive list of setting options for the professionals who want to do the settings combinations themselves. Focusing is lightning fast. With the use of the Touch Shutter mode, a simple tap on the screen can help you focus on a subject, the autofocus locks on and the camera makes a shot automatically. This camera also does face recognition and tracking. With these settings, you will just tap the screen when selecting the face of a person you want to focus on and the camera will automatically do the photo shooting. The Digic 5 processor of the EOS 650D is six times quicker than the Digic 4 of EOS 600D. This camera has a fast shutter speed that can capture with sharpness and admirable detail those fast moving subjects. It can do a nonstop shooting rate of five frames per second and it can be great for any sports adventures photo shooting. There are also Creative filters to put drama on the images. Nevertheless, some find the filters flashy and less impressive. One downer is the selling price. It is pretty expensive and certainly not attractive to those who do photography as a hobby. However, if it is a career or an income-generating work, then it is certainly a good investment and a step-up from the Canon EOS 600D. If money is not an issue, then this can be one of your productive toys. The image quality that the EOS 650D makes has well-balanced colors. The contrast and brilliance are there looking naturally. The ISO100 - 12,800 of this camera creates detailed images with unnoticeable noise except when zooming in at a maximum view. The absence of noise is made possible with the help of the built-in noise reduction settings. If expanded up to ISO25600, images become noisy and with some color distortions. Between ISO100-3200, images are unquestionably noiseless and without distortions. All in all, the Canon EOS 650D is a relatively expensive DSLR for a beginner, but, the features are admirable and reliable. The camera is as good as advertised and certainly, it is worth the purchase.
