The T4i is Canon’s advanced amateur DSLR, sitting between the bargain-basement T3 and the higher-end 60D and 7D enthusiast models. It’s priced at $1199 with the 18-135mm IS STM kit lens, but can be had for around $1100 from reputable merchants. The D3200, on the other hand, is on the bottom rung of Nikon’s DSLR product pyramid. Its MSRP is just $700 with the 18-55mm kit lens, and it’s going at $650 and cheaper at current internet pricing.
What improvements has Canon's Hybrid AF system brought to the EOS 650D's usability in live view, and what might this mean for the forthcoming EOS-M mirrorless camera? As a precursor to our imminent 650D/Rebel T4i review, we've published two videos showing how Hybrid AF works, compared both to conventional phase-detection AF and to a contemporary mirrorless rival (in this case the Panasonic DMC-G5). It's a chance see how the 650D performs but also gives an idea of what we can expect from the EOS-M, which uses the same technologies.
That touch panel is one of the T4i’s primary advantages in the features comparison. It allows for touch-based menu navigation, quick setting adjustment while shooting, tapping to focus, tapping to shoot, and control of playback as well (including pinch-to-zoom behavior). The D3200’s fixed screen is bright and clear, but it simply can’t compete with Canon’s superior tech.
Outside the lab, the differences were less obvious. Canon seems to use more JPEG sharpening and slightly stronger noise reduction by default, which gives the T4i’s images more punch straight out of the camera. Both cameras had very good color accuracy in their most faithful color modes. Of course, if you’re shooting RAW these differences would be mitigated, since any image can be punched up and sharpened as much as you like in a good RAW developer.
