Advanced image quality

Capture every detail with 18-megapixel resolution, and enjoy the smooth tones and accurate colours of 14-bit DIGIC 5 image processing. The EOS 650D produces files big enough to print at large sizes or crop for alternative compositions without sacrificing quality.

Produce Full HD movie projects

Capture premium-quality movies at 1080p resolution, enjoying the right level of automatic or manual control for you. Autofocus is possible while filming, and a built in microphone enables the recording of high-quality stereo audio.

Keep up with fast moving action

Track moving objects accurately across the frame with an autofocus system comprising nine cross-type AF points. Continuous shooting at 5 fps for bursts of up to 22 frames means you’ll never miss that decisive moment.

Explore new viewpoints

The EOS 650D has a Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio Clear View LCD II Touch screen that hinges away from the camera’s body and rotates through 270º. This enables video and still-image shooting from alternative viewpoints – such as over the top of crowds or from waist level.

Touch-screen control

Enjoy alternative access to the EOS 650D’s controls through a Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen. Shoot and focus with a single tap and use pinch and swipe gestures when reviewing images.

Low-light performance

The EOS 650D can capture images over a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12,800 (extendable to ISO 25,600), enabling hand-held shooting in low light without using flash.

Integrated Speedlite Transmitter

Explore creative lighting options by positioning Canon Speedlite flashes off camera and controlling them with the EOS 650D’s Integrated Speedlite Transmitter.

Scene Intelligent Auto

Canon’s Scene Intelligent Auto technology analyses each scene and sets the most appropriate combination of cameras settings automatically.

Great results in difficult conditions

HDR Backlight control captures three different exposures and combines them into one, retaining shadow and highlight detail. The EOS 650D’s hand-held night scene mode captures multiple images at fast shutter speeds and blends them together for a blur-free result.
