Canon EOS 650D

Canon’s new entry level DSLR, the EOS 650D is the first EOS to feature a dual AF system, which ensures exceptional detail in stills and continuous autofocus tracking when shooting movies. At the camera’s heart is an 18MP Hybrid CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 processing, enabling the capture of sharp, full resolution images in full HD at up to 5fps. A vari-angle touch screen also makes camera operation quick and easy, providing instant access to an extensive range of settings and scene modes.

Its newly-developed 18MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor captures sharp poster-sized images in low light thanks to its native 100-12,800 ISO range, expandable to ISO 25,600.

A 9-point all cross-type AF system provides exceptional performance during stills shooting, offering precision accuracy when capturing sports, action and wildlife. Additionally, a new Hybrid AF System offers continuous autofocusing during movie recording, and when shooting in Live View AF in Live View and Movies.
