Canon Rebel T4i/650D Video Test
« on: June 20, 2012, 01:36:13 AM »

I picked up my Canon Rebel T4i/650D at my local brick and mortar and did a quick video test to evaluate the video quality and the newly fangled touchscreen LCD. I did not have time to try out the new Hybrid AF tracking system because the sun was quickly fading.

The video quality was just as good as the previous T3i. I was hesitant to like the touchscreen at first but it comes handy when choosing and magnifying a focus point quickly. Other than that, the T4i is quite amazing for a Rebel.

You can view my video test on my Youtube channel here...

I also created a modified .plist for the Canon E-1 Movie plugin v1.3 for Final Cut Pro for the Canon Rebel T4i/650D. I attached the .plist to this post for closer viewing and the instructions are listed in my photoblog link above.

Did you use the touchscreen with a longer lens?  I had a sony hdv/dvcam A1 which had touch screen and even with the slightest contact the camera wobbled at telephoto.   

I wish Canon would introduce lanc control off camera, maybe the stm lenses are a move towards that?

Did you use the quality scale setting?  Interested to see if you can attain a higher bitrate than with T3i.
