If I was in the market for a new camera and I was going to switch from my beloved Nikon D600 I would have to open my eyes and mind to this new small frame digital camera. The new Canon EOS Rebel SL1. The one thing I have noticed is that as we get better and better DSLR cameras we see them becoming smaller and smaller in their over all frame size.
FROM CANON DIRECTLY: The EOS Rebel SL1 features an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that performs exceptionally well in both bright and dimly lit shooting environments with an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to H: 25600) for photos and ISO-6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for video. Canon’s DIGIC 5 Image Processor technology allows for exceptional image quality and shooting speed up to four frames per second (fps).
The price point I have found for this little gem is $699.00 with the kit lens of 18-55 mm f/3.5 – 5.6. If you don’t have a DSLR and you are thinking about picking one up for the holiday’s this could be the hot grab this season. If Nikon comes out with something before the holidays I am sure I will report to you also.
