Unboxing The Canon EOS Rebel T4i / 650D

Features and unboxing of the Canon T4i / 650D

With all of the new smartphone technology, the typical point and shoot market has taken a nosedive. The truth is, the quality of smartphone cameras comes closer to a DSLR than a point and shoot especially with available apps.

I’ve been taking pictures and videos for years with my phones including the video below from my iPhone. I’ve decided it was time to take the plunge and purchase my first DSLR camera for better quality and control of my photos and videos. I’m sure I have a lot to learn but for now here is an unboxing of the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D.
