Canon has announced its latest and world’s smallest ever DSLR, the EOS Rebel SL1 also known as the EOS 100D in some countries. the Rebel SL1 measures 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm, and weighs only 407g. Canon says that the camera is 25% smaller and 28% lighter than its Rebel T4i digital camera. For consumers looking for a great camera without the bulk, this is an excellent option to consider.
The camera has an 18-megapixel image sensor and nine-point autofocus system. The rear LCD is a three-inch touch sensitive unit and the camera has an ISO range of 100-12,800. That ISO range can also be expanded to 25,600. Due to its smaller body, there are some hardware sacrifices like smaller battery and grip compared to T4i. It shoots just four frames per second and has only one cross-type autofocus point, but for the most part is right in line with Canon’s other entry-level DSLRs. The Canon SL1 will be available next month for $649.99 for the body alone or $799.99 in a kit with a brand new 18-55mm STM lens.
