18 Megapixel CMOS Sensor & DiG!C 5 Image Processor – Features an all-new 18.0 mega pixel Canon-developed CMOS sensor with fast 4 channel readout that captures superb image quality with low noise and natural colour.
Fast Continuous Shooting – It captures full resolution images up to 5 frames per second. Great for sports, wildlife, kids & pets.
Incredible Image Detail In Low Light – With a standard ISO range of (100-12800) and expandable to an incredible H:25600, the Canon 650D’s DiG!C 5 image processor delivers incredible image detail at high sensitivities for amazing low-light performance.
3-inch Vari-angle Touch Screen LCD Screen – High resolution (1,040,000 dots) articulated vari-angle Touch Screen LCD – great for composing low or high-angle shots, or when in difficult positions. The Canon 650D’s touch screen operation allows for Touch Focus and Touch Shutter as well as easy-to-access menus. Familiar gestures such as “pinch zoom” and “swiping” to scroll through photos make it easy to quickly review photos.
9-point Cross-type Hybrid CMOS AF System - 9-point cross-type AF points plus dual-cross f/2.8 at the centre. The new hybrid system increases AF speed with fast continuous AF when shooting photos and movies in Live View. Because the camera’s cross-type AF points have two-dimensional contrast detection, the EOS 650D provides highly accurate focus regardless of the shot composition and ensures great focus no matter where the subject is located in the frame. The addition of the dual-cross point in the centre allows for much faster, precise focusing for photographers using high-speed f/2.8 lenses.
Live Face Detection AF Mode – In Live View mode focuses on detected human faces rather than other objects that might appear in the frame.
Scene Intelligent Auto - The camera automatically analyses the shooting scene with this technology based on faces, colours, brightness, movement and contrast
Movie Feature – The Canon 650D captures Full HD video* with stereo audio up to 1920x1080 resolution at 30, 25 or 24 frames per second for cinematic look; or 1280x720p at 50/60 frames per second – great for smoother capture of fast action. Full manual controls for extra creativity. Touch Focus can be used in video mode, with or without an STM lens. However the effects of continuous AF will only be achieved with the use of an STM lens.
* SDHC Memory Cards and SDXC Memory Cards can be used only in equipment that is compatible with their respective formats. We recommend class 6 or higher memory cards for recording high definition video.
Movie Servo AF - When used with Canon’s new EF and EF-S STM lenses, the camera can provide smooth and quiet continuous AF while recording movies. This technological breakthrough enables the new EOS 650D to achieve AF while still retaining a DSLR camera’s signature background blur and image quality, for stunning creative effects.
Video Snapshot Mode – compiles a number of short excerpts of 2, 4 or 8 seconds length from your video footage into a ready-made movie without the need for editing on a computer. Now with the option to delete, cut or re-order the clips before exporting the Snapshot album to post or share.
External Mic Input – The Canon 650D allows you to connect an optional external microphone using the 3.5mm jack for better sound quality.
Creative Art Filters - Apply creative filters to images in-camera without the need to edit on PC. Filters include: Fish Eye, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Grainy B&W, Miniature, Art Bold and Water Painting effects are available.
Handheld Night Scene, HDR Backlight Control and Multi-Shot Noise Reduction - Take multiple pictures, and combine them – in-camera – to help capture a wider dynamic range, minimise the image grain or noise, and produce more vivid colours so landscapes and city scenes are as breathtaking as when seen in person.
Feature Guide – The feature guide on the Canon 650D helps you understand the different functions of the camera
Self Cleaning Sensor – prevents and automatically removes tiny dust particles resulting in cleaner images.
Picture Style Modes – Wide range of picture modes for quick & easy camera set up in any shooting situation.
Lenses – wide range of compatible Canon EF & EF-S lenses as well as third party lenses such as Tamron and Sigma.
RAW file format – file format that allows greater adjustment of various camera settings on your computer after you have captured your images, without losing image quality, such as adjustment of colour balance, exposure, etc.
HDMI Mini Output – Output stills and video in full High-Definition to a HDTV using a mini HDMI cable (sold separately)
