Canon EOS Rebel SL1 – The world’s smallest and lightest DSLR camera for professional and naïve users
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.
