How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Canon's Rebel T4i shoots great stills and HD video, has a very useful articulating touchscreen LCD, and includes one of the best and fastest autofocus systems available in its price range. It also has a great mix of easy presets and manual controls, making it a very good option for point-and-shoot users looking to upgrade to a DSLR. If you already have a recent Canon DSLR, like the Rebel T3i, there's little reason to upgrade, but if you're looking for your first DSLR, the T4i is a very good option.
