I really wanted to like this camera, but there are a few really bad issues with it that spoil it. 1. Af is not accurate with faster glass - everything under 2.8 is a hit and miss with this camera, even in perfect light and center point at the eye of the model, it can misfocus pretty easily. Other people I know had the same issues. 2. The grip has started to turn white after just 6 months. That's really bad... 3. The battery life is just terrible. I need a spare or a grip... 4.  The controls ...

I bought the 650D because of the flip screen for video, but the camera froze several times on a very random scale when set for video and with live view, changed the body for another but same fault. Canon UK said that they had not experienced the problem but lots of other examples on the net. Canon only solution was get a refund, must be a big problem to sort out the fault as the 650D is now discontinued. The repair workshop could not find the fault on the first body and said it could be the ...

I like the camera its got tons of features and the price is a great deal for a person starting out, but If you had the money and could go another 500 the canon 7d would be worth looking at in my opinion. I shoot everything from bugs to stars and everything in between. Great starter but that's it my next camera will be a canon 6D .

Being an amateur, the EOS 650d delivers all aspects you may technicall need. The limit is your personal creativity and patience. Simply works!

I just bought a Canon 650D 2 days ago and I am very impressed with the camera overall but mostly the accuracy of the color rendition. I own near 20 digital cameras, mostly Olympus, and after trying 5 or 6 different Canon DSLR in the last 4 years, I ended up returning or reselling all of them (XSI, 40D, 60D, T2i, T3 and recently the 6D). The T4i is the first one I consider keeping, the colors it produces are so close to what I am seeing, I consider this a big step for Canon. Of course it's not ...

i am tossing between the 650d 18-135 STM and d5200 18-105 VR. i went to Ted's Camera and played around with both for a while. The sales consultant was very helpful and didnt mind. What really surprised me was the speed of the auto focus on the Canon STM system. In real life lower light use, the focusing speed was much much faster and quieter on the Canon. It also did not require AF assist, whereas the d5200 struggled a bit more and the AF assist light came on more often when focusing on the ...

An excellent DSLR incorporating HD video function. I no longer have to carry both a DSLR and a camcorder. I have had this camera for 2 months and have now used it in 10 different countries. I am very pleased with my purchase because: Excellent stills IQ (I use mainly RAW but JPEG results are fine) Wide range of functions and modes 18 - 135 lens excellent range, able to cover most photographic requirements Battery life good Low light performance good. Video fine in most situations, including ...

I use now this Camera since 6 months. It's an amazing and powerful camera (sometimes too much powerfull, see my problems comment). I will not talk about the sensitive touch screen, the 1rst one in DSLR camera, funny and usefull, everyone had talk about it. A great feature. Else this camera is similar of the 600D (rebel T3I) and so is near of the 550D (T2i) , same sensor ( the 7D has the same too) , photos and videos has the same quality. The difference is when operating in live view mode ( ...

Awesome upgrade from the T1i!! With 5fps continuous shooting, an articulated, touchscreen LCD monitor, built-in lens correction for vignetting and CA, full HD video recording, HDR exposure mode, and thanks to DPReview's review stating that the highlight dynamic range issue can be mitigated by enabling Canon's highlight Tone Priority (HTP) settings, this is an amazing camera at a very reasonable price! Problems: Just wish that the battery lasted a tad longer. Not a big problem though.
