Canon Rebel T4i First Look

I have a slight addiction to cameras.  This time I convinced myself that my
lovely wife needed her own light weight DSLR.  The Canon T4i fits that bill,
and I hope it will make a great travel camera , smaller and lighter then my
other DSLRs.  I bought it at North Tampa Photography a few weeks ago,
so far so good.  It's a solid tough little camera, light weight and relatively easy to use.
If  you have an earlier Rebel you will have no problems, after years of using
a 20, 40 and 7D I found some of the buttons and menus challenging but
I figured most of it out, still learning it really.

I don't do "reviews" or give "recommendations" everyone is different and
has different needs and expectations.  That said, here are some of my first
videos and a sample of stills, a small low light ISO sampling at the bottom.
If you want a more detailed look, check out my friend Chad's blog over at
Chad Soriano PhotoBlog he has more stills and videos.

  1. Nice videos. Thanks for sharing. Just getting into timelapse myself and looking at the 650D (T4i) as my first DSLR.

  2. It's a great little camera, so far so good with mine. I will have a new T4i time-lapse video and post this week.

  3. I am trying to get a great picture of a bracelet. I need the entire picture to be crisp and clear. After speaking to a sales person, she said the Canon EOS Rebel T4i is the camera that would give me the photos I need. The camera came with an EF-S 18-55 IS II lens, she did say it will take crisp photos even with this lens, and the entire photo would be clean not just the front with fuzzy sides and back.

    I have tried every setting. After several days of trying and reading on the web, I can’t get a good focus on the entire bracelet. The front of the bracelet is clear, the rest is fuzzy. Do you have any advice?

  4. Yes, first use a tripod. Put your bracelet in a well let area, reflected sun light would be best. Then set the camera to Av on the settings dial (aperture preferred), then set your aperture to f22 or what ever the highest aperture that lens has, the Av will figure out the shutter speed from there automatically. See if that works! A higher aperture number will give you the widest depth of field possible and you will hopefully see your entire bracelet.

  5. Awesome vedio & photograpy. I really love it. I ordered my Canon T4i y'day & eagerly waighting for delivery & can't wait after watching your vedio & snaps. I love your reply & hopefully I can try my best to take satisfied shoot as I know you can guide me when I need your help. Once again thanks for sharing such beautiful skill with us. May GOD Bless you.
