Canon has pulled the wraps off of a new digital SLR camera that it claims to be the world’s lightest and smallest. Canon says that the camera is 25% smaller and 28% lighter than its Rebel T4i digital camera. The new camera is called the EOS Rebel SL1.
The camera has an 18-megapixel image sensor and nine-point autofocus system. The physical dimensions of the camera are 4.6-inches wide by 3.57-inches high by 2.74-inches deep. The camera weighs 14.36 ounces. Those measurements are for the body only, the lens will add extra weight and heft.
The rear LCD is a three-inch touch sensitive unit and the camera has an ISO range of 100-12,800. That ISO range can also be expanded to 25,600. The camera is capable of shooting bursts at four frames per second. The camera will be available in April with the body only selling for $649.99 and a bundle featuring an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens selling for $799.99.Filed Under: Camera News
