T4i ?


There are rumors going around that Canon will sometime in the month of June be announcing 2 new cameras - the t4i / 650D and maybe a mirrorless body, perhaps in EF mount. A t4i would be welcome because it should hopefully mean that Canon is finally fixing up the low to middle range of their products. The big question will be if the t4i has the moire and aliasing problem fixed. If yes, this bodes well for a 70D eventually with the same fix. If the 7D updates to a 8D or 7D mkII it should also have the same fixes. My concern is that Canon instead does a 50% fix - quite literally they make it better, but not perfect to force users who are brand loyal to go well up the product line for acceptable video quality from these cameras. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks how this will go, and hopefully Canon will step up and not screw this up.
