With an array of lenses perfect for travel, sports, still life and everything in between, photographers can truly maximize the quality and performance of their EOS Rebel T4i.
Lens Aberration Correction
The EOS Rebel T4i features lens correction tools that compensate for lens characteristics that can affect overall image quality. The EOS Rebel T4is lens peripheral illumination correction feature corrects light falloff in the corner of the image according to the characteristics of the lens being used. It even has correction data for a number of popular lenses stored in its memory. With the EOS Rebel T4is new chromatic aberration correction tool, distracting color fringing can be corrected at the time of shooting.
To help explain the specific function of features found on the EOS Rebel T4i, the feature guide displays a simple description helpful in determining the applicability for the situation at hand. It is displayed in each shooting mode, during mode dial operations, and for Quick Control screen functions. It appears automatically when a function is selected?a lifesaver when trying to determine the best mode or function for the next picture. The feature guide works automatically by default, and can be disabled easily through the cameras menu.
With the optional GPS Receiver GP-E2 attached to the hot shoe or the digital terminal, the EOS Rebel T4i can record location, including latitude, longitude and altitude, plus can track the trajectory of movement with its logging function. An electric compass records the cameras orientation during each shot, and world time information is recorded through GPS syncing.
To create images suitable for sharing by email or online, the EOS Rebel T4i can resize JPEG files, in camera, of varying pixels (aspect ratio cannot be changed, only the image size can be decreased) while leaving the original image untouched.
Photographers can share their images in book form with the EOS Rebel T4is convenient Photobook Set-up feature. Users can easily choose specific images, images in a folder and even all images, then specify their sequence and layout. The results can be printed in book form, with ease.
To help organize images recorded to the cameras storage, the EOS Rebel T4i makes it simple to rate individual images from one star to five. Therefore, image browsing, printing and slide shows can be based upon those ratings.
