Canon 60D vs T4i

<< < (2/3) > >>

Carny:
I think we will eventually know, lol.

Think there is any chance any of the rebel line will have built in wireless flash control?  One of the main reasons now I'm wanting to get a 60D or 7D is for the flash control.

Canon sells three tiers of DSLR's

Beginner models  XXXD

Enthuiasist Models XXD

Pro and super user models XD

Upgrades are better compared with models in the same category, since the differences tend to be in build quality, AF, and added features.  Features trickle down to lower models, but the build does not.  AF seems to trickle down slowly, if at all.

Doubt that so very much...

Well, right now the T3i has the same wireless flash control as the 60D and 7D, right?  It has something..  I've never used one, but that's what's listed as its specs.  So if that's the case, then I assume that *yes* the T4i will have wireless flash control.

Will it have wireless RADIO control (like the new 590EX is supposed to have)?  Probably not.

"The EOS 7D and 60D were the first Canon SLRs to support wireless flash control using the built-in flash, and the Canon T3i follows suit. That is, the T3i's built-in flash can act as a controller or commander to one or more remote wireless flashes. You can have the built-in flash contribute to the exposure, or just command the remote flashes. Like that of the 60D, the Canon T3i's wireless flash capability supports four channels and defines two groups (the 7D defines three groups). Exposure compensation and flash ratio of 1:8 to 8:1 can be set on a per-group bases, allowing a lot of control over how multiples flashes contribute to the final exposure. Additionally, there's an Easy Wireless Flash mode, which simply fixes the flash strobes to all operate as one group with a 1:1 flash ratio."

Is that not enough for you?

I didn't realize the T3i was capable of that.  Can the T2i do the same?  I have a T2i and a 50D, but for the price of an ST-E2 I can sell and upgrade to a newer body.  Looks like I should try to find a deal on a T3i if that is the case. 

Sorry if I've derailed this thread too much.

Do you think the T4i will have the same wireless controls if Canon is switching to radio?  It seems like it would either have the new version, or nothing, probably nothing.  :'(
