The EOS 650D promises unparalleled performance with the world's* first intuitive touch screen (vari-angle) interface for set-shoot-view convenience. Its Auto-focus (AF) System is precise with a new 9-point all cross-type AF backed by a new Hybrid CMOS AF System. AF speeds are dramatically increased while focusing on live view and movie shooting modes.

* as of 6 June 2012
  • ISO 100-12800, expandable to 25600
  • Handheld Night Scene
  • Continuous AF in Movie Mode
