Silent and smooth Movie Servo AF (a first for DSLRs with Full-time AF in video mode). That’s pretty much all you need to know about the new T4i. Oh, and compatibility with a new line of STM lenses, which are designed specifically for the T4i’s video capabilities. In addition, Canon has revamped its highly popular T3i model by introducing large touchscreen controls, on-board stereo microphones, and beginner-friendly features that’ll surely attract newbie and seasoned DSLR fans alike. As for guts, the T4i comes equipped with an 18-megapixel, APS-C sensor, Digic 5 image processor, ISO 12,800, 1080p at 24 or 30 fps, 720p at 50 and 60 fps. You can pick up the body alone for $849.99; $949.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens kit; or a movie bundle for $1,199 with a EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.
Before we address the topic at hand, did everyone see how amazing Star Wars 1313 looks? Why can’t all games looks this beautiful? Ok, now, the iPhone cases. Officially licensed iPhone cases at that by company PowerA. The Collector Cases include: Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca (with fur!). (Who hasn’t wanted to pet Chewbacca?) There are also two very awesome Saga Cases — Poster Artwork and Droids of Tatooine. The timing may render these essentially obsolete before they even hit, as Apple’s new iPhone looks to change to a 4-inch screen. In any case, the cases will be available sometime later this year for $40 and $30, respectively. [Gizmodo via PowerA]
Hunting for “fun” isn’t exactly the most courageous of pastimes out there. Oh look, you shot a defenseless animal, way to go. Nothing to brag about. Bring your “sport” up a notch and step into a world where you’re not only the hunter, but the hunted. This Tyrannosaurus Rex trophy will prove that man is truly at the top of the food chain. I mean, what can be harder than taking out the most violent dinosaur known to Hollywood? So what if the trophy is baby-sized; what matters is what’s sitting up there on your wall. For $70, this hand painted, polyresin comes with a metal keyhole mount for easy wall mounting. If anything, it’ll make for a good conversation piece for dates you bring home. “Oh that? Yeah I went back in time and snagged me a T-Rex. No biggie.”
