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.

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, Flexi Zone 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.

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.

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.

    Size Name: Body Only
    I recently bought one of these from a local dealer and I have to say this is the best camera I've ever used. My requirements were I wanted a camera that was still set up for excellent still work, but could also switch to taking videos.

    Still work
    The 18MP sensor is all I need for helping me to take incredibly detailed shots which even of subjects at a distance can easily be cropped and or blown up to help reveal the detail (I'm a wildlife photographer mostly, though not all the time). The fast shutter speed also helps with taking sharp images of moving subjects such as birds in flight.

    Video work
    This is the main area of expansion for me, although I don't use any of the dedicated canon series of lenses for video work. Instead I've mostly connected my 100-400 EF lens, which thanks to its extra width allows for more light to enter the camera which is perfect for taking high definition videos of distant subjects that you simply cannot get close to. An additional bonus with this camera is when I add the canon EF 2x III extender into the mix. Normally an extender added to a canon 100-400 EF lens will result in the loss of the autofocus working, but when I switch the 650D to video mode, the autofocus WORKS! (and without taping the pins) I don't know exactly why, it just does, maybe its the firmware inside the camera. Still photos can of course still be taken when in video mode, but you need to look at the screen instead of through the viewfinder.

    Video can be recorded in brackets of several seconds which can then be watched in order to give the impression of a continous effect. Usually so far I just film with the standard settings (at 1080 high def) which results in a file that is just a bit short of thirty minutes long.

    Size Name: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit Verified Purchase
    I bought this camera after thorough research as I wanted to upgrade from Canon EOS 500D. I am not saying that the 500D was a bad camera by any means. It is a fantastic dSLR for starters and has been a faithful companion for over 2 years.
    However the 650D offers several significant improvements over the 500D. Most of it comes from the faster DIGIC 5 processor, low image noise and the overall performance of the 650D. Of course, we cannot ignore the touchscreen, which believe me, is quite handy for changing settings on the fly without hitting too many buttons. I am very happy with the results of the 650D and the overall package. I love the articulate touchscreen LCD, 5 fps capability, and the improvements in video recording such as continuous auto focus and stereo microphones.

    Photography is my passion and hobby, but by no means my profession. As such I can't invest in a full frame sensor (my dream cam the EOS 1D-X). So any camera above the 650D (even the 7D) exceeded my budget. Although the 7D is also APS-C and not a full frame.

    My kit now includes the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. These two lenses allow me to shoot in pretty much any type of situation (except astronomy, of course). I love my gear and could not have wanted more from a high end entry level dSLR such as the 650D.

    Size Name: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Kit
    You're thinking of getting the 650d, reading the reviews, comparing it to the 600d and countless others and pulling your hair out at all the pros and cons? Am I close. I'm a photographer and have used this, the 600d and its sony equivalent. I might be able to help. Let me start with an anecdote, (you've read enough technical jargon for now so consider this a breather)
    I film the eagles on Mull and the landlady I stay with was telling me about this other photographer who visits her little cottage (it's beautiful by the way, you should visit if you get the chance). So anyway, she is cooking tea , as she does if you ask her nicely. While it's cooking he shows her one of his photos, probably of a sea eagle catching a fish. Everyone wants to photograph one of those even though its on every other postcard in Scotland. Next to a highland cow looking over a gate its the top photo/cliche to get.. Anyhoo, she looks at the photo and says "wow that's great...you must have a brilliant camera" .
    So they sit down for supper a bit later and its delicious, she is a great cook. He says "This is lovely...you must have some great saucepans!" boom boom.
    But herein lies the real point of this camera. You know its the person behind the camera that takes the pictures but do you really know it? This and the 600d take pictures so good (if you have the skill) you could blow it up the size of front door but are you going to want to. The thing no sellers want to tell you is that for years, maybe 5 , all of the big names have been making great dslr. Since the nikon d40 perhaps. But you really want to know, if you bought this, would you be happy or buying a pup. Be reassured that neither canon, nikon or sony make chocolate teapots. They know how to make a great camera and this is one.

    I recently upgraded from a Canon EOS 400D to the 650D, and I love my new camera. I had previously been very much content with my 400D, but the 650D has many great features which make it a pleasure to use. Some of my favourite points:

    - The LCD display is really sharp and clear - great for reviewing your shots - makes the display on the 400D look poor even though it's not really that bad

    - You can use the LCD display to take shots which at first I thought was a bit pointless (what's wrong with the viewfinder?), but when trying to take macro shots of damp moss near to the ground it is extremely useful being able to use the LCD display, especially as it angles and tilts, so now I'm a convert!

    - The fact that the LCD display is touch screen was something that again I thought was an unnecessary extra - however it is very useful to make quick changes to settings without turning dials and knobs

    - The 18.0 megapixel sensor is excellent and is an obvious step up from my 400D's 10.1 sensor. If you need to crop a shot you can do without losing detail and the photos are top notch quality (well, as good as the photographer who takes them!)

    - The ISO of up to 12800 is very useful in low light conditions, although of course if you go too far, you do risk grainy shots as with any camera

    - The price is not unreasonable for a piece of kit of this quality

    - It feels good in my hand - not too heavy but reassuringly solid

    - The £50 cashback from Canon was a very nice little extra

    All in all I think this is an excellent camera and I'm really happy with the shots I've got with it. The only downside is that it's so good I had to buy a new lens and spend more money! Shots taken with the combination of the 650D and my new Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens are definitely worth the money!
