Canon T4i/650D has just announced and this eventually creates confusion among people who want to buy/upgrade to Canon 60D. Canon T4i/650D shares some similarities with 60D, and about $50 cheaper.
Let check out their similarities:
- 18 MP image resolution
- 9 cross type autofocus points
- Swivel LCD screen
- Same metering system
Then here are some key differences:
Canon 60D has top LCD screen, weather sealed body, two dials and dedicated buttons. It has 1/8000 sec max shutter speed and longer battery life.
On the other hand, Canon 650D has phase detection in live view mode, which will help videographers a lot, about 200g lighter and smaller plus has the newer DIGIC 5 processor which might process better images. Canon T4i also has touchscreen LCD, which is easier to navigate and use.
