20 June 2o12, Singapore – Canon launched the latest entry level DSLR, the EOS 650D featuring new imaging features and for the first time, a touch screen control that no other Canon DSLR has.

This successor of the EOS 600D has these features:

  • 18-megapixel CMOS sensor 
  • DIGIC 5 imaging processor
  • New Vari-angle Touch Screen Interface – an intuitive user experience with touch gestures like pinching, zooming and swiping
  • New Hybrid CMOS AF system – perform full-time continuous autofocusing on video mode
  • 31-zone, multi-point AF 
  • New Subject Tracking AF system
  • ISO range from 100 to 12800 (expandable to 25600)
  • Multi Shot Noise Reduction – allows users to take four consecutive shots which the camera will automatically merge and align to compensate for noise while improving detail and definition
  • Handheld Night Scene mode – lets photographers capture dark scenes without the need for a tripod
  • HDR Backlight Control – shoots 3 images at different exposures to combine into a single, perfectly expose image, preserving details from both bright and dark areas
  • Improved EOS Scene Detection technology – users can directly apply one of seven effects (Grainy/Black & White, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Miniature, Art Bold, Water Painting, & Fish-eye) to their pictures without additional post-processing on the computer
  • New Night Scene – assesses point light sources or ambient light to automatically adjust exposure settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO), based on whether a tripod is currently used or not
  • Video Snapshot editor – allows users to capture quick video snapshots in 2, 4 or 8-second durations
