with the DSLR-quality mirrorless system gaining paces, it hards to imagine average prosumers would opt for bulkier DSLRs. however, the new Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera might just change the minds of those ‘average prosumers’. billed as the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR, the Rebel SL1’s body measures just 4.6″ x 3.57″ x 2.74″ and tips the scale at a mere 14.36 oz (about 407 grams). to put it in perspective, it is about 25 percent smaller and 28 percent lighter than the EOS Rebel T4i. despite its significantly smaller statute, it is still a full-featured DSLR, featuring a newly developed 18MP CMOS sensor matched to a high-performance DIGIC 5 image processor, and boast exceptional performance in both bright and dimly lit environments. other highlights include ISO range of 100-12,800 (ISO 6,400 for videos), a new nine-point center cross-type autofocus system, Canon’s movie servo AF for continuous AF tracking of moving subjects, full HD videoing in a variety of sizes and frame rates, and a Touch Screen three-inch Clear View LCD monitor II which supports two-finger touch gesture for zooming or changing images, accessing menu and quick control settings, plus it allows for activating focus point and shutter release while shooting. the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera is slated to hit the shelves this April with a sticker of $649 for body-only, or $799 with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens. take a few more look in the gallery we have prepared for you below. you have to agree with us this is probably the cutest DSLR ever. no?
