23 Reasons why Canon EOS Rebel T4i is better

than the average

1.Distinctly more megapixels (photo)
18.5MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Clearly larger sensor
22.3 x 14.9mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
4.Considerably higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
5.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
6.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
7.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
8.Way higher pixel density
501ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
9.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
10.Explicitly higher resolution
833x1,250pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
11.Has a touch screen
Yesvs No (79% don't have it)
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
12.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
13.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
14.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
15.Has touch autofocus
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
16.Noticeably less shutter lag
0.131svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
17.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
18.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
19.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
20.Noticeably less startup delay
0.15svs 34.83s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
21.Noticeably more lenses available
162vs 21 (the average)
vs 400 (best: Nikon D5)
A bigger variety of brand lenses means that you have more options and can find one that suits your needs.
22.Newer DIGIC version
5vs 5 (the average)
vs 7 (best: Canon EOS M5)
Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
23.Cheaper lenses on 650D
A good micro 4/3 f2.8 zoom costs a fortune, and there are all sorts of compatibility problems too I think. For Canon there are many good lenses available, cheaper, second hand, and they'll just work.
