Canon India has announce the arrival of the EOS 650D in India. Positioned as the flagship of the entry-level DSLR range, the EOS 650D is an evolutionary leap forward, and a successor to the popular EOS 600D.
The EOS 650D, known as the Kiss X6i in Japan and the Rebel T4i in the Americas, has been priced at Rs. 55,995 (body only). The EOS 650D kit (with EF S18-55 IS II lens) is available for Rs. 59,995.
The EOS 650D features a hybrid CMOS sensor with vastly improved continuous autofocus, a newly developed 18MP, APS-C sensor, 9-point, all Cross-type AF system and a 3.0-inch, vari-angle, capacitive-touch LCD screen.
Speaking on the product, Mr. Seiji Hamanishi, Assistant Director - Imaging Communication Products (ICP) division, Canon India Pvt. Ltd., said "The EOS 650D is a revolutionary product developed from ground up to offer unmatched performance particularly while shooting video. It is the first DSLR in the world to feature a highly intuitive and usable capacitive touchscreen interface. It is also the first EOS camera to feature a Hybrid-Sensor based AF system, allowing continuous autofocus. This particular feature when combined with the new STM lenses, allows for unbeatable performance for video shooting. With the 650D, we are targeting highly discerning users who demand professional still and motion imagery results, at the most competitive price point".
In addition to the EOS 650D, Canon is releasing two new EF lenses to compliment the EOS 650D. Both of these lenses feature Canon's new STM (Stepped Motor), for faster, improved and virtually silent focusing - a huge boon for both still image and video shooters. With the new EOS 650D with its ultra-fast hybrid AF system, a new vista of expression is opened up to EOS users.Key Specifications
