Canon Rumors is pegging Friday, June 8 as the announcement date for the Canon Rebel T4i. Rumored specs include 18MP CMOS sensor (which is the same resolution as the Rebel T3i), 9 cross-type AF points, touchscreen LCD and full-time AF in video mode.
Additional rumored announcements include a revised 18-135mm IS lens and an EF-mount 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens.
This is consistent with last month’s rumors; however, I’m still holding my breath on whether full-time AF in video mode means full-time “functional in real world” AF in video mode.
If it launches this week, we could see the camera on store shelves this month – given the typical quick delivery of Rebel models in past product launches.
