You will soon be able to pinch to zoom out or shrink, zoom and swipe on a DSLR camera.
For the love of touchscreens, Canon has created the world’s first DSLR with intuitive touchscreen interface.
The new CanonEOS Rebel T4i has an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, DIGIC 5 image processor, ISO range of 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600), high-speed continuous shooting of up to 5 fps; and 3-inch, 1.4 million dot-resolution Vari-angle Clear View LCD II capacitive touchscreen.
The touchscreen can utilize both the AF system and the shutter.
The electro-static touch-panel screen is the most advanced that Canon has released to date with multi-touch capabilities allowing photographers to use familiar gestures such as “pinch-to-zoom” and “swiping” to scroll between pictures,â€ the company press release said.
The T4i also features a Multi-Shot Noise Reduction function that takes multiple (four) consecutive shots and merges and aligns them, to compensate for colors lost in noise, capture a wider dynamic range, produce more vivid colors.
Canon’s T4i will be available at the end of this month, at an estimated retail price of: US$850 for only the body; US$950 for the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens bundle kit; and US$1199 for the Movie Kit bundle that comes with the new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.
