The EOS 650D uses an APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor, which allows for dual phase and contrast detection autofocus when Live View is enable or video is recorded. The autofocus system, which features nine all cross-type points, has been designed to "provide exceptional performance during stills shooting, offering precision accuracy when capturing sports, action and wildlife."
The camera also features Canon's Digic 5 processing engine, a first for a non-professional model, and has a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO 12,800, expandable to ISO 25,600. The 650D also offers a frame rate of 5fps.
Similarly to other models in the EOS range, the 650D can shoot Full HD videos at 1080p and is fitted with a stereo microphone.
The EOS 650D is said to be the first digital SLR to feature a three-inch Vari-angle Clear View LCD II touch screen, which supports multi-touch gestures such as pinching and swiping. Users can also select AF points, track faces and objects, as well as fine-tune setting using the camera's touch screen, says Canon.
The EOS 650D will be available from 15 June, retailing at £700 body only.
