Canon has revealed the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR camera, the EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera that boasts-of an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and an exceptionally high class DIGIC 5 Image Processor. This whole package gives this DSLR camera an edge over other competitors in the image quality and speed criterion for a point and shoot camera. Weighing only 14.36 oz and the camera body measuring 4.6″ (W) x 3.57″ (H) x 2.74″ (D) the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 camera is almost 3/4th the size of its big brother EOS Rebel T4i digital camera. With an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to height 25600) for photo shooting and ISO-6400 (expandable to height 12800) for video the possibilities for shooting in low light as well as bright lighting with that perfect click are immense.
The Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor makes possible shooting of exceptional image shooting speed of up to 4 frames per second with amazing image quality. There is a nine-point center cross-type autofocus (AF) system for that crisp focus combined with a new Hybrid CMOS AFII sensor and continuous AF speed for a much wider focus area while shooting photos or videos in Live View mode.
