Canon EOS Rebel T4i650
In 2003, Canon revolutionized the photography world by introducing the first
digital SLR camera to sell for less than $1,000, the EOS Digital Rebel/300D.
And even at that then-unheard-of price, the camera delivered exceptional
performance and picture quality, earning it rave reviews and multiple industry
awards. No wonder it quickly became a best-seller.
That tradition of excellence and value lives on in the EOS Rebel T4i/650D.
Like its ancestors, this baby offers the range of advanced controls that
experienced photographers demand plus an assortment of tools designed to
help beginners be successful as well. Adding to the fun, this Rebel also offers
the option to record full high-definition video, plus an articulating,
touchscreen monitor that’s not only useful but also just plain cool.
The T4i/650D is so feature-packed, in fact, that sorting out everything can be
a challenge, especially if you’re new to digital photography or SLR
photography, or both. For starters, you may not even be sure what SLR
means, let alone have a clue about all the other techie terms you encounter in
your camera manual — resolution, aperture, white balance, and ISO, for
example. And if you’re like many people, you may be so overwhelmed by all
the controls on your camera that you haven’t yet ventured beyond fully
automatic picture-taking mode. That’s a shame because it’s sort of like
buying a Porsche Turbo and never pushing it past 50 miles per hour.
Therein lies the point of Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D For Dummies. In this
book, you can discover not only what each bell and whistle on your camera
does but also when, where, why, and how to put it to best use. Unlike many
photography books, this one doesn’t require any previous knowledge of
photography or digital imaging to make sense of concepts, either. In classic
For Dummies style, everything is explained in easy-to-understand language,
with lots of illustrations to help clear up any confusion.
In short, what you have in your hands is the paperback version of an in-depth
photography workshop tailored specifically to your Canon picture-taking
powerhouse. Whether your interests lie in taking family photos, exploring
nature and travel photography, or snapping product shots for your business,
you’ll get the information you need to capture the images you envision.
