The Canon 650D - also known as the Rebel T4i - features a first for a Canon digital SLR. It's the very first model to include a touch-screen LCD.
Who needs all those knobs and dials when you can just touch the LCD?
All the controls that you would expect are there: tap (set autofocus point or take pictures), swipe (when playing back images) and pinch (to zoom in and out on a single image).
In addition to its fancy LCD, the Canon 650D features a Hybrid autofocus system: one optimized for regular stills shooting and one for live view and video recording.
All Canon DSLRs have super-fast autofocus when you use the viewfinder to compose your photos - but when you switch to "live view" (where you use the LCD to compose your image) autofocus slows down considerably.
This is especially true when you are shooting video - the unresponsive autofocus has a hard time keeping up and adjusting focus to track a fast-moving subject.
The Hybrid autofocus in the Canon 650D is designed to speed up live view autofocus so you don't have to resort to manual focus (which is the case with many other DSLRs).
