An ideal start to an EOS adventure
An ideal entry to the world of EOS imaging. The EOS 650D 18.0-megapixel sensor is superb for both still images and Full HD movies. A Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen makes shooting simple.
18 Megapixel resolution
Thanks to an 18.0 Megapixel sensor, the EOS 650D captures images in stunning high resolution at a maximum size of 5184 x 3456 pixels. Print poster sized images, or crop to make new compositions with abundant detail.
Full HD quality
Creative movie making is made even easier on the EOS 650D thanks to high-speed autofocus, on screen editing and full stereo sound. Canon's advances in Full HD Movies means the joy of creating a movie is exciting and easy to achieve.
Capture the action
Football and other fast-paced sports require the very best performance from a camera. Rapid action is recorded in full resolution thanks to a continuous 5fps, which means you will never miss that critical moment.
Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0") 3:2 ratio Clear View LCD II Touch
Understanding the EOS 650D is made even easier thanks to a highly intuitive screen with 1,040,000 dots.
A first on any Canon DSLR, touch screen technology offers control over viewing images and movies with pinch to zoom, plus control camera settings and even fire the shutter with a touch of the screen.
The LCD can be angled and tilted for any shooting situation and performs well even in bright sunlight meaning you can always see what's going on. Focus and compose using all of the screen's display, safe in the knowledge that the aspect ratio is the same as the captured image.
CMOS sensor technology
Only Canon designs, develops and manufactures all its own sensors, which means quality is guaranteed at every production stage.
With advanced metering and stunning low-light capability up to an incredible ISO 12800, the EOS 650D can handle difficult shooting scenarios with ease, in many cases eliminating the need for a flash or tripod.
Its highly sensitive CMOS sensor can be expanded to ISO 25600 enabling you to push its performance even further in low light.
Four ways to focus – better, faster AF
The EOS 650D boast superior autofocus performance with nine cross-type focus points, allowing you to create sharply focused pictures with confidence- even in the trickiest situations. There are four ways to focus, from Face Detection and Tracking, FlexiZone and Flexi Zone Multi (which allows you to select one of nine zones on the LCD), to Quick mode that lets you change the focus point by touching the LCD and dragging the highlighted square to where you want the lens to focus.
Lighting effects made easy
Get creative with off-camera flash thanks to the EOS 650D's Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, which allows you to add additional Speedlite flashguns triggered remotely by the camera with no need for any cables or complications.
Position another compatible Speedlite to one side for dramatic side lighting or use more than one flash placed in different areas to light subject and background independently.
HDR Backlight Control
Select direct from the Mode dial and shoot images with HDR Backlight Control for stunning results in backlit conditions.
With the power of the DIGIC 5 processor, three continuous shots at different exposures are taken. The shots are under, correctly and over exposed and then combined to create an image having minimal loss of highlight detail and shadow detail – even in backlit conditions.
Scene Intelligent Auto
Choose Scene Intelligent Auto and with the powerful DIGIC 5 processor at work, each scene is analysed for the presence of movement, faces (in Live View), lighting, contrast and colour.
Even the EOS 650D's Auto Lighting Optimiser is fine-tuned according to dynamic range, so that highlights and shadows are recorded and reproduced perfectly.
