And there you have it. Another Canon DSLR Camera release. The new Canon EOS Rebel T4i comes with everything we’ve already come to expect from a typical Canon Rebel camera including swivel LCD screen (it’s now Touch Screen LCD with Swipe, Pinch, and Zoom support), but the stand out feature is the continuous Auto Focus in Video mode. That’s a first for any Canon DSLR.
