Canon has just released an update of their four-year-old Rebel SL1, with the arrival of their new Rebel SL2, that aims to take true DSLR image capturing in a body that not as big as that of a mirrorless.
The new Rebel SL2 will feature a more modern standard imparted into the camera’s body in terms of specification and dimensions. Buyers will be introduced to a new 24.2MP APS-C sensor as well, and will also have to get used to a more fuller weight of the camera, which has now gained an extra 46 grams, making the camera weigh at 453 grams.
The Rebel series has always been an entry-point for photographers who want to get the best amateur DSLR experience, until they are ready enough to get the big-guns of the brand like the 5D or 70D; and Canon keeps it that way, offering friendly features that are not too complicated and not too advanced, allowing basically anyone to pick up the camera and start clicking high-quality shots.
Additionally, it will have an ISO range of 100 to 25600, thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF that can focus during Full HD 6o fps as well as live view stills. The famed DIGIC 7 image processing system takes care of the back-end, allowing for smooth shooting speeds of 5 fps at continuous shooting. Canon is marketing the SL2 to have the world’s fastest autofocus speed among its class, locking its focus in place as fast as 0.03 seconds. The camera will be made available late July 2017 with a starting price tag of $550 for the body alone and $700 with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. For a compact DSLR, there is nothing better.
