Canon Rebel T4i dSLR Review and Giveaway

Joshua Lockhart 16-07-2012

Canon Rebel T4i dSLR Review and Giveaway canont4igiveawayCanon has just released their new Rebel T4i – their first (of hopefully many) adventures into the touchscreen dSLR world. This camera is a step up from the Canon Rebel T3i (also making it the third dSLR Canon has released with a flip-out LCD).


We’ll be taking a look at the Canon Rebel T4i digital SLR, plus a giveaway — yes, we’re actually giving a brand new unit away! Find out more after the review.

Price and its competition

The Canon Rebel T4i‘s body tops out at about $849, and with an 18–55mm kit lens it comes out to be around $949. This is just a little less than the professional level Canon 60D, which comes out to be $899 for the body and $1199 to add on the 18-135mm kit lens. Furthermore, the T4i a bit pricier than the T3i which has dropped down to $749 with the kit lens. Over on the Nikon side of things, we have a simliar price at around $846 for the D5100 (with a current B&H discount).

Generally speaking, it’s a fantastic camera, but if you already have a Canon camera, you may want to reconsider buying it. Then again, with features such as the touchscreen and STM lens support, you may want to take a stab at it. But you may not have to spend out of pocket — MakeUseOf is giving away one of these T4is, so stick around and you may have one for yourself!

Initial Impressions

The Canon Rebel T4i comes in the same packaging that pretty much all Rebels have. You won’t find anything spectacular here. As always, it comes with the standard manual and a pamphlet full of photography tips. Included in the box was the camera body itself, an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, a camera strap, the manual, and a pamphlet on basic photography tips.

My first reaction to the Rebel was neither positive or negative. Maybe I was super tired, or maybe I’m just around cameras too much, but after picking it up, well, I decided that it’s just a camera. Never mind how amazing it is that we actually have a device in existence that instantly records images – sometimes I forget how nifty that just is.

Right out of the box, the Canon Rebel T4i does have a little bit of a plastic-like feel to it. However, it is sturdy. Seriously, I think I could throw this at my neighbors who play loud music at night, hit them, pick it back up, hit them again (knocking them out, of course), and the camera would still be okay. Maybe that’s a little extreme, but I think you get the picture.

As you can tell, there are some nifty features with this camera. However, despite how great these features are, the camera just hasn’t changed very much since the T3i. Yeah, I haven’t forgotten about the touchscreen — we’ll get to that.

Canon Rebel T4i Review

Let’s talk about the new touchscreen for just a moment. What can I say? This is the T4i’s selling point! Seeing that this is Canon’s first touchscreen DSLR, the T4i is revolutionary. The feedback from the screen is incredibly practical, and not once did I find myself wanting to throw the contraption against anything (save for the situation with my neighbors).

Just to give you an idea of how great the touchscreen is, I just want you to simply think about the iPhone’s mechanics. Personally, I believe that both devices’ user interfaces are quite similar. Ultimately, everything about it is incredibly fluid and natural.

canon rebel t4i dslr review

When viewing pictures, a pinch-to-zoom feature is available, and when browsing both pictures and videos, simply swiping will do the trick. Surprisingly, the camera does not offer pinch-to-zoom for focus assist, but seeing that this is Canon’s first time out with a touchscreen camera, I see no need to set the expectations too high. Besides, they need to leave some features for the T5i to use, right?


However, I’d like to just give you a little bit of a taste of my rant on touchscreens. Number one, I’m not a huge fan of touchscreens when it comes to cameras, and that is simply due to my fear of the screen losing calibration. In the past, I actually owned a camera with a touchscreen (consumer model, mind you) that totally lost its calibration, and since all functions of the camera depended on that touchscreen, the machine became useless. However, with the Canon Rebel T4i, there is no need for such concern.

Fortunately, to use the new Rebel, you are not forced to use the touchscreen. The device operates just fine on its own using physical buttons, and I would say that the touchscreen is more of a shortcut system. For instance, consider how many menus you have to go through to get to the white balance settings on the typical Canon. With the touchscreen, you simply push whatever you see on the camera info overlay to change it – easy enough.

Furthermore, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed can be changed with the touchscreen itself. All one needs to do is scroll through the numbers, reducing the need to use physical buttons. As I mentioned, my personal preference is to simply use the actual buttons for changing settings. However, I found myself using the touchscreen for on the fly changes.


The Canon Rebel T4i is also designed to use the new STM lenses which are able autofocus smoothly and quietly for video. With these lenses, no longer are users subjected to the constant obnoxious CLCH–CLCH sound that the original autofocus mode made. Unfortunately, I was not able to get my hands on a new STM lens, but I just thought I would make a note of it.

I did some tests in low-light settings with the camera on the street when I first used it, and despite how dark things were, I didn’t see very much noise. That’s always a plus. (Granted, the pictures were terrible.) With that said, I’ve heard that this camera is just the Canon 60D packaged into a smaller body, and honestly, that may be true. Let’s go ahead and take a look at the specs of the new Canon Rebel T4i:

  • 18.0MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • ISO 100-12800, Expandable to 25600
  • Full HD movie mode with continuous autofocus
  • 5.0 FPS continuous shooting
  • 9-Point all cross-type autofocus system
  • Multi-shot noise reduction
  • Compatible with Canon EF and EF-S Lenses

Another feature that the Canon Rebel T4i packs in is the addition of a stereo microphone. Realistically, you wouldn’t be using this microphone if you were shooting video to be presented somewhere (you’d likely pick up a shotgun or a lav mic), but when you’re in a bind, it works.

Ultimately, I have to say that the touchscreen is the only major feature of the T4i that is worth writing home about. However, it’s still a great camera.

Living With The Canon T4i

Admittedly, I’m not a photographer, but I am a videographer. Due to this, I’m not used to setting the shutter speed different from 1/50 or 1/60 of a second. Yes, I’m in the thick of the DSLR videography world, but when it comes to photography using the same camera, I still fight my battles. Below are a few of the “decent” pictures I was able to grab with this thing just for fun.

Although I’m a fan of the subject (my girlfriend Ashleigh), I’m hoping to get a little more experience with photography. Video-wise, I did some tests, and I did discover that there is a bit of a rolling shutter effect (especially in 30fps). Furthermore, I can confirm that the onboard microphone isn’t that great, but this is expected with any camera. However, for little clips where no microphone is available, it should be fine.

Once again, I want to emphasize that the Canon Rebel T4i is a great camera. But I wouldn’t let it be the reason that I let go of the camera that I already have.

Should you buy it?

If you don’t have a camera body, I would buy it. It’s a great introductory body, and it fits right into our touchscreen world. However, if you already have something like the Canon T3i or even the T2i (which is now obsolete), I wouldn’t worry about it. Wait for something new to come out.

Our verdict of the Canon Rebel t4i:
Buy it (if you don’t already have a camera).

    Hi Joshua, I am trying to decide between the T4i or T3i with the extra EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens package as a present for my husband. We recently use 8.0 mega pixel Power Shot Pro 1 and ether of these will be a big step up from it. I would also like to use it as a video camera and a good zoom is a desirable feature for my husband as well, that's why the T3i with 55-250 makes more sense to me right now, but then it is an outdated model and I can buy the extra lens later. Can you (or any of the readers) help me to with the dilemma, thank you so much, Monika.

  81. Bob A
    July 31, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    To me the most important upgrade in this camera is the autofocus feature during movie mode. I wish you had touched on this more. Nikon has had the lead in this and I was hoping for a comparison. None here.

    Just looking at the few example photos here, I realize how much I've settled for incredibly poorer and poorer photo quality over the years. Makes me want to dust off my old SLR, if not for the chemicals and cost of film/processing. This would be great to renew my interest in photography!

    July 27, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    How could you not like this DSLR camera, I have been shooting with one of the first Nikon digital's the D70. I especially like the ISO level of 12800 and higher that the newer cameras are capable of. The D70's ISO limits out at 1600 and the noise is very apparent in low light conditions. Thank you Cannon, for the opportunity to win this camera and Joshua for this comprehensive review...

    Yeah, I have a Canon body I have been using for 10 years, and I think it may be time for an upgrade. I'm shooting with a 20D. I think you should choose me to win, just because I squeeze great photos out of an ancient camera. See my work ar

  181. Yang Yang Li
    July 26, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    I noticed that this giveaway requires points to enter. Will this be the case for all future giveaways? In the days before the points system, all that was needed for a entry was the secret code.
    The secret code system was fun. I became very good at guessing what the code was. If it is gone, I will miss it.
    On another note, inflation in the points system has already started to occur. The earliest giveaways allowed one to purchase an entry for only 10 points. Now this giveaway requires 25. Uh oh, 250% inflation in 1 month.
    I would suggest differentiating the points needed for an entry based on the value of the product being given away.
    Despite getting free entries in the past, I like being able to buy the things I want through the points system.

        You are welcome.

        P.S. Do NOT make any more comments. I notice your points are at the godly number of 10000. Congratulations

    • Jackson Chung
      July 27, 2012 at 5:47 pm

      Hi Yang,

      Yes, giveaways in the future will utilise the Rewards system, which means that you will be asked to spend a few points to participate. This benefits the participants because the giveaway will have fewer entries (so your chances of winning will be higher). So the more points required to join a giveaway, the better (see?)

      At this point in time, we're only asking for 25 points to enter a giveaway. However, for super exclusive giveaways (hint!) the entry cost could be more.

      • Yang Yang Li
        July 28, 2012 at 1:37 pm

        Sounds like a plan. I look forward to the super exclusive giveaways. I am going to work towards affording an entry.

  182. Yang Yang Li
    July 26, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Well this is certainly a nice camera to have. The cameras I have used are the Nikon D7000 and D5100. While those are nice cameras, I do not like the way Nikon makes its models. The two cameras are very similar yet different in many ways. It is quite a hassle to manage different batteries and menu settings.
    I have always liked Cannons (due to the power of advertising) but never owned one. The photos taken using Cannons are truely amazing.

    Looks a good camera,however,I live right on the coast in Norfolk,UK and would worry about sand getting into any moving parts.Would a "water resistant/proof" be more of a better choice,but if I were to be lucky enough to win one,I am sure I would protect it.

    I'm wondering if this camera is compatible with the "Magic Lantern" program, bios hack, or whatever it is. I only read about the "Magic Lantern" hack in passing, since I never imagined I would own a Canon camera.

    Among other things, "Magic Lantern" is supposed to turn a high-end Canon DSLR into a near-full-fledged professional video camera. If this T4i is compatible with ML, then I will be going nuts with it if I win the giveaway!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Whoever wins this thing, congratulations!

    • Saikat Basu
      July 22, 2012 at 3:02 pm

      As far as I know Magic Lantern is for Canon 5D Mark II and 550D/T2i digital SLRs. I could be wrong though.

    I'm far from an expert, heck... I'd hardly even call myself a photographer {I'm. Point,Click andHope!!] And I don't mean any disrespect to anyone or challenge their knowledge. Having said that ......I have to wonder sometimes why so many avid photographers are so critical and negative about Differant features technology and the way the top companies handle making their cameras able to be around for alittle while. As consumers we complain {ALL THE TIME}.about how much of our hard earned money is spend on top of the line equipment because we want the best or better,only to find that in a very short time its absolutely useless because it obsolete.Because of what has taken its place.I Like the way Canon is keeping there upgrades the same enough anyway that a person could start out with this and have a damn good camera by adding the new stuff they come out with . I'd be proud to have this as my family camera and pass it on even . Most imortantly CANON is USA BABY! That right there says it! Sure it s got SONY this and somewhere else that but its workin together that the way USA is!!! sooo0.. anyways ....Jusst sayingggg!

    I have an older model Canon and just love it, but, alas, technology changes and it only has 6 pixels! I would love to get a newer camera but have been mystified by what is the best choice, so this article is helpful. I recently ordered a camera from a tv shopping site to check it out and it will be going back! It may have 16 pixels but it just doesn't seem to be made well, and doesn't have the features I am looking for, or they are not as user friendly and I did not think the anti shake/stability was as good. I'm getting older and I tend to shake more when I am trying to get that elusive zoom shot so I need something that's going to help me avoid blurred shots! Thanks for the article!

    • Hoku Sarroca
      July 20, 2012 at 4:45 pm

      I have the t1i, and only issue I've had was the auto focus mechanical part, but because it was still under warranty they fixed it with out any hassle as some companies would require a bunch of paper work. and that was back in 2010' and I have not had any issues with it since. although if you want to switch lens to a wider one that is going to cost a lot more than the camera itself. but they do sell adapters to where you can use your old 35mm lens on it just won't be dslr but it does still work. I would suggest that if you are looking into this, to go to a store and hold it in your hands as the weigh varies from camera to camera.

    People don't understand that an iPhone is not enough of a camera
    to carry with you at all times (At least not yet...).
    Yes, it's good for an "on the fly" "Instagram", or people's faces.
    But the best example i got for you, is taking pictures in a very dark place
    When you're not allowed to use Flash, or the distance to the stage
    At a show or a festival.
    The pictures with an iPhone in these situations Becomes USELESS...
    How I wish i could have me a camera to fill in those gaps,
    & to experiment in light & nature pictures!

    Mixed Reviews.
    I'm planing to buy aT3i but just saw this camera and wanted to know more about the videography (if that is a word) of the T4i. The reviews I've seen say that the live focus was both great or slugish and since you cannot test this without an SD card I would like to hear your opinion.

    Thanks and regards

    Ken Rockwell says that "Nikon and Canon are optical companies, not camera, electronic or software companies. It's sad to see people buy good Nikon or Canon cameras and then put off-brand lenses on them."

    Is really that the case? I mean, these cameras are a impressive piece of technoloy in capturing and processing images (white balance, auto-focus, exposition evaluation, dinamic range, sensor sensibility gain aka ISO boost, etc), are there anything better than a Canon DSLR body to the fantastic Canon lenses?

    (Sorry for the bad english)

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 19, 2012 at 12:44 am

      Yes. The person who is using the camera. I think that statement's a little ridiculous. If you put a Sigma or Tamaron lens on one of these... I don't think it's a problem. It's really how you use it.

    "pick up a shotgun or a lav mic"
    Does the T4i have an external mic jack, then? If so what type? I would like to get a DSLR for video, but an external mic is a must.

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 18, 2012 at 11:42 pm

      It does. Just a 3.5mm jack, but I did use it with a Rode Mic (not my favorite) and a lavalier after this article was written. You can monitor the levels, too. The 60D offers the same. Furthermore, the 7D's next firmware will allow audio monitoring as well.

    Seeing some of the posts I think some of the folks here do not realize that this i not a camera that you can pull out of the box, throw some batteries into, and immediately take killer pics.

    AsJoshua and the rst of us who shoot DSLRs can tll you, folks, without lenses, this camera is a very expensive boat anchor LOL, and I can tell you from experience (I have six Canon lenses, and I have bought vehicles in excellent shape for less than my lenses cost!) that the camera body is the absolute least of the expense.

    That being said, once you go DSLR, I don't think anyone would ever willingly turn back. I certainly wouldn't.

    For those who don't win, there is a way.It's not cheap, but it's doable. If you have an older Canon, even if it is no longer functional, Canon has an exchange program where you can swap your old camera for a refurb at a greatly discounted price. I know, I know, it's a refurb....BUT, and this makes a huge difference, it is a Canon FACTORY refurb, not one some yahoo on Ebay took apart with a pair of channel locks and his wife's eyebrow tweezers and blew the dust out of with a ShopVac.

    It's an option, and not one that a lot of folks seem to know about, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

    As a Canonophile having bought my first Canon in 1978 (yes I am that old) and a great fan of the AE1 and AE1-P which was early technology innovation I really don't get the addition of touch screen technology to a DSLR.

  472. Drew
    July 18, 2012 at 5:44 am

    Generally I'm a fan of Canon but this camera seems a little out of place to me. Why put a touchscreen on a DSLR? Seems kind of like putting a saddle on a cow. Granted @Joshua you seem to have a similar attitude to touchscreens, so maybe it might not be as bad a faux pas as it seems. I guess what I am trying to say is that if it's a DSLR, it kind of screams prosumer to me, so why the gimmick of touchscreen?

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 18, 2012 at 2:28 pm

      Eh. Well, Drew. Here's what I think. Like I said, I'm a bit biased because I've had a bad experience in the past, but it's a little silly of me to base the entirety of my views on that one experience. My reasoning is simply this: If the screen loses calibration/breaks, then the camera is useless. I like back-up plans, and for me, the back-up plan was the fact that the buttons are still available. If they weren't available, I wouldn't be too happy. But fortunately they are, and I'm pleased!

      Realistically, this just seems to be the direction cameras are moving towards. For instance, take the RED camera. It uses a touchscreen system for its monitor, and when you think about it, it is easier to flip through files, select them, and even change settings when you can just touch it on the screen.

      I would compare it to computers. Remember how computers used to be full of straight-up code and commands? If you wanted to do anything, you had to know some commands. But then they came up with the graphic desktop with the fancy cursor and everything. I believe that this shift in camera technology is quite similar to that.

      With that said, on computers, you can still access the code when you need to do something that's really nitty-gritty. Similarly, with cameras, I still want access to buttons.

    Am I the only photographer that has noticed the inability to see what you are photographing clearly without the view finder? I already own a Sony with a screen and no view finder and taking pictures in broad daylight has been a chellenge since the screen is not visible, even with a cover. Reminds me of how everyone thought bagless vacuums were great before realizing they kick up more dust in the air than those with a bag.

    Got a 40D and it takes fantastic pics. Wouldn't touch this piece of junk.

    No, really it'd make a great back-up or quick trip easy to handle camera. A nice addition to any camera collection.

    I have a T2i - but the feature I missed from my 2 point and shoot cameras is the display (Olympus C5050 and Canon) - being able to pivot the display is great - I'm able to shoot above my head in a big crowd.

  561. Doug Loyd
    July 17, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    I wish DSLR camera's were less expensive. I have the standard point and shoot digital cameras with 8megapixels and my photos look like crap. However, if I use my tried and true Canon SLR and have the photos developed, the photos look great. However, who's got $900 to buy an entry level DSLR?

    Guys, I'd like to be entered in the drawing, but as an "Old Timer" in both Photography (degree from RIT in '79), and computer support (I started supporting them back in the days of CP/M) I don't have accounts on, nor do I trust, any of these social networks. I consider them a waste of time, amateurish, and a hole in both my privacy and my security. That said, I do love your site, and often download your eBooks and cheat-sheets. Can you help an old geek out?

    • Dee Wheat
      July 18, 2012 at 7:11 pm

      Tom, you can set up accounts with the social networking sites just to use for things like this. You don't have to share any sensitive or private info unless you want to. I don't trust them either, but people get into trouble with them by posting the details of their entire lives, some of them literally sharing every step they make. If you don't share your life history and don't click links you'll be fine LOL

    The reviewer focuses on the touch screen as being the main selling point of this camera, but I think the ability to track focus during video shoots is the best feature of this camera. My T2i shoots amazing video, but only if the subject is not moving away or towards the camera. This new tracking feature is reason enough for me to want this camera.

      Yeah... It's a bit frustrating from what I gathered. Frustrating only because it's different, though. I'm sure with a little practice people will understand it.

      Anyway, even I had to take a minute to understand it. From what I can tell, since you're at 25 points, you can enter.

    I bought my husband a DSL3 by CANON for Christmas 2011 and he has only used this camera about 4 times and now it is not working. He has been extremely careful with it....kept it in its case when not in use, etc. We are extremely disappointed about this!!! WILL never purchase a CANON again. Two friends own a NIKON and have not had a minute's problem with it. My husband can take about 3 pictures and then the camera locks up and will not take any more pictures???????? We are totally dismayed about this! WHAT CAN WE DO...WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS??????? PLEASE HELP US! WE ARE RETIRED AND NOT TO TECHNOLOGICALLY INCLINED!!!!!!!

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 17, 2012 at 6:21 pm

      I'm afraid that might be an issue with the individual camera. Canon is widely respected, and as with any company, there's a chance that one of their products had a bit of a flaw. Everyone makes mistakes.

      I would first recommend seeing if you are still under warranty. There should be some documents in the packaging that will explain what you need to do.

      Else, try this:

      Go to that link and punch in the serial number of your camera. If you have trouble with that, call this number: 1-800-OK-CANON

      Just tell them your problem, and try to be as detailed as possible.

      I can personally vouch for Canon as well as some others. Just because one of their cameras out of thousands didn't work doesn't mean they are a bad company. Nikon is great too. I'm sorry that happened to you, but just give the above options a shot.

  624. pixelriffic
    July 17, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    Arg!! I just bought a T3i a few months ago. When asked, the local dealer said they knew of no replacement on the near horizon. I wonder if they knew, and kept it from me? Oh well, I'm still very pleased with the T3i, and the new camera would definitely be my choice if I had to do it again.

    I will say that I will never buy another DLSR without a flip out display. There is just no reason not to have it, and now I can't do without it.

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 17, 2012 at 6:15 pm

      Eh. I don't know... I didn't expect it so soon. What kind of stuff do you use your camera for? Photos or video?

      • pixelriffic
        July 17, 2012 at 8:40 pm

        Good question. I primarily wanted it for video. And it does a great job. Better than I'd expected, considering it's not a full frame camera. The shop was actually trying to sell me a Nikon 5100. Good still camera, but the Canon is much better for video.

  625. Rita F.
    July 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    think its awesome that this is being given away but i honestly dont understand the idea behind touch screens... :? ive always liked buttons but id have to play around with it to really like it

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 17, 2012 at 6:10 pm

      Yanno. It wasn't really the high point for me when I first saw it, but it does make a few things easier. I prefer tactile response, but I can't complain. Furthermore, for every touch feature there is a physical button.

    I have an older Canon Rebel XSi and love it but the touch screen would be much nicer to use when going through menus to change the camera settings. I'm looking forward to trying one out at our local camera shop. If I win one from Makeuseof,com that would be even better.

    One question I need to ask our local camera pros is, are the lenses interchangeable from the XSi to the T4i. If so this would save me having to purchase additional lenses since I could use the ones I have for my current camera.

    Thanks for posting the review!

Could have sworn I'd entered a good number of contests, too. Anyway, I don't currently have enough points to enter--I think--so...bummer. Maybe I'll just have to get busy and earn some points, but it kinda sucks that I don't get any credit for the things I have already done.

      Yes, unfortunately, the rewards system only works when you are logged in as a user. Thus it is not compatible with things you have done in the past, even if you use the same credentials to sign up. However, I think you'll be able to earn enough points to enter contests rather quickly.

    I find this VERY confusing. I have been following for years now, participating in draws, commenting on articles and have been receiving emails from you, however, when I tried to initiate this new POINTS system you have, it did not recognize my email address.

    Good luck to whoever wins... i don't seem to have enough points to enter thew draw ?!?!?

      Thanks for being a loyal user, fizzbin! Unfortunately, the new rewards system requires everyone to sign up with a new account. It doesn't matter whether you have commented with a particular email address before. However, you can easily earn points by commenting and sharing articles while being logged in now.

    I've been using the T2i for a while and thought that was a great camera. Rarely took a bad picture. Now that my brother has it, I'm looking for a replacement and almost bought a new T3i on a great deal. This article has me rethinking that idea.

    This would fit quite nicely in my camera bag, although I might just make a bag just for it. The awesome thing is, all the lenses for my T1i will fit this version too. People trash talk Canon, but every experience I've had with them has been overwhelmingly positive, and at my age it's not easy to overwhelm me!.

    • Saikat Basu
      July 17, 2012 at 9:01 am

      Ultimately, it's about the eye and pressing the shoot button at the right moment. I don't think the touch screen is going to come in the way.

    • Angelika LaBonte

  801. Peter Gray
    July 16, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Every year I keep hoping the Digital Rebel will add support for full-frame lenses. Each year I am disappointed as Canon seemingly dances around the obvious.

    Full-frame lenses mean a beginner to the world of DSLR's can buy fully into Canon's ecosystem and enjoy the value of having lenses that move with them as they get into more advanced gear.

    A pity.

    • Joshua Lockhart
      July 17, 2012 at 1:36 am

      It's a shame, I suppose. But at least it could be free, right?

    • Goran
      July 17, 2012 at 9:35 am

      Actually, you can use full frame (EF) lenses on this body. Canon has two types of lenses: EF - which can be mounted on both full frame and cropped-sensor bodies, and EF-S - which can only be mounted on cropped-sensor bodies.

    • Wezley Duggan
      July 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm

      As Goran said you can mount the EF and EF- S lenses on these bodies but they do make the lower end cameras very top heavy. the idea of a cheap body and expensive lens is the best way to go though !

    • Lee
      July 18, 2012 at 7:50 pm

      Does this mean that my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L won't work on the Rebel. this would be a deciding factor in stepping down to a Rebel.

      • Kyle Zhou
        July 24, 2012 at 7:11 pm

        It will work, but you'll have to deal with the 1.6x crop factor of the smaller APS-C sensor (basically, your lens will have a 38.4-112mm framing with a 24-70mm perspective if you're switching from a 5D mk II or whatever). If you are stepping down from the 7D or 60D (or something else with an APS-C sensor), the most prominent difference you'll feel is the build quality and size of the Rebel vs. your old camera.

    • Gary
      July 19, 2012 at 12:46 am

      Cannon wants you to dip into your wallet a little further for one of their more expensive models to experience full frame.
