The EOS Rebel SL3 is the smallest and lightest DSLR ever
The camera weighs less than a pound.
The EOS Rebel SL3 is the smallest and lightest DSLR in the EOS line—or any line, for that matter—but that doesn’t mean that Canon skimped on the tech inside. The ultra-compact camera is built around the same 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as the SL2, but boosts auto-focus performance and other specs with a DIGIC 8 Image Processor. It’s also the first camera in the Rebel lineup that can shoot 4K video. Here is what else we know about it:
- Nine AF points across the optical viewfinder
- Continuous shooting mode up to 5 frames per second
- Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Eye Detection AF
- Smooth Skin setting
- Feature Assistant offers tips to amateur photographers for more effective shooting
- 3.0-inch vari-angle LCD touchscreen
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- Weighs 15.84 oz
- Available at the end of April in black or white for $599 (body only) or $749 with a EF-S 18-55 f/4-5.6 IS STM lens
The SL2 isn’t designed for a professional shooter, but this camera seems like a great option for families looking to capture high-quality shots without the trouble of lugging around extra bulk. It also joins reaffirms Canon’s commitment to DSLRs when it’s making its move into the full-frame mirrorless world.
