Canon launches new EOS Rebel SL1, world's smallest and lightest DSLR

Canon's new EOS Rebel SL1 is the world's smallest and lightest DSLR

| Cameras News | Posted: Mar 21, 2013 5:31 pm

Canon has just released what it is billing as the "world's smallest and lightest" fully featured DSLR. The EOS Rebel SL1 weighs in at just 14.36oz and is 25 percent smaller than its older sibling, the Rebel T4i. The new SL1 is targeted at competing with the current micro four-thirds mirror-less models that are flooding the market.

Featuring a new 18-megapixel CMOS based APS-C sensor, and Canon's very fast Digic 5 image processor, this little DSLR packs a punch. An ISO range of 100-12800 can tame low light situations, and is expandable to 25600 for stills and 6400 for video. The SL1 is capable of shooting four frames per second of continuous shooting.

The SL1 also features a 9-point auto focus system that is capable of autofocus tracking when shooting video. This is enabled by the bundled 18-55 f/3-5.6 IS STM "kit lens" that features Canon's movie servo autofocus feature. The EOS SL1 will hit shelves in April with a body only price tag of $650 or $800 with the kit lens.
