Canon have announced an upgrade – replacement to the 600D in the form of the logically named Canon EOS 650D. The new camera features some quite interesting developments.
A very brief list or highlights of some of the spec’s would include:
Improved AF which seems to be designed to improve both live view capture and video capacity.
All cross type focus points (9 in all)
A new 3″ articulated rear touch screen.
In camera HDR and multi shot noise reduction capture.
An improved frame rate (it’s now 5fps)
An all the above are powered by the new DIGIC5 processor
Therefore whilst it may look very similar on the outside to the 600D, Canon are most definately showing their true colours with the 650D.For Canon it would appear the future is not a pixel war with the likes of Nikon and Sony but enhanced AF, improved video capture and a low noise quest which to my mind is no bad thing.
