The black EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens from Canon is a lightweight APS-C format digital SLR camera with an 18MP CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5 image processor. It is combined with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for an effective range of wide-angle to standard focal length shooting options.

The EOS SL1 provides sharp details, accurate colors and low-noise imaging in compact form factor with easy to use interface. A 9-point autofocus system provides fast focusing when shooting with the viewfinder and Hybrid CMOS AF II increases autofocus speed and accuracy when shooting in Live View. The Rebel SL1 can continuously shoot up to 4 fps and its wide ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) allows for confident shooting in bright and low light situations.

A 3.0" Clear View II touchscreen LCD with 1,040k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing. Its intuitive touchscreen operation includes multi-touch operation with direct access to functions for settings changes and Touch Autofocus. Smudge-resistant coating keeps the monitor clear, even in bright sunlight. An optical viewfinder with 0.87x magnification is also available for stable eye-level composition. 

Full HD 1080p at 30 fps and 24 fps is supported with Movie Servo for continuous autofocus during shooting. Manual exposure is provided in video mode and 60 fps is possible when shooting at 720p HD. A built-in mono microphone with manual audio level adjustment is provided, and Video Snapshot with editing is supported.

Scene Intelligent Auto Mode automatically makes the optimal camera adjustments based on scene recognition and improved scene detection is particularly helpful when shooting night scenes. Advanced imaging features such as Effect Shot mode and background Simulation are available and Creative Filters add expressive touches to your images and can even be viewed in real time during Live View shooting. Special Scene Modes including Kids, Food and Candlelight let you set the type of shot you want and have the camera do the rest.

The EOS Rebel SL1 is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses. It is paired here with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens which offers wide-angle to standard length shooting capability specifically designed for APS-C cameras. It is equivalent to a 28.8-88mm focal length in the 35mm format and its minimum focus distance is 9.8". This lens features Canon's Optical Image Stabilization system, providing 4-stops of compensation against the blur caused by slow shutter speeds when shooting hand-held in low light or at longer focal lengths. An internal focusing system provides fast autofocus and with a Stepping Motor (STM) and six group zoom system it supports the Rebel SL1's Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus during video recording. Manual focus override is possible. A high precision aspherical lens reduces chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for sharp imaging and Canon lens coatings provide accurate color balance and minimal ghosting and flare.

18MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor
High resolution, low-noise imaging and fast performance speed, including 4 fps continuous shooting, is provided by the combination of the Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor and 18MP CMOS sensor.
3.0" Clear View II Touchscreen LCD Monitor
A 3.0" Clear View II Touchscreen LCD monitor with 1,040k-dot resolution provides clear composition and playback viewing even in bright light. Its smudge-resistant coating keeps the monitor clear. The touchscreen features multi-touch operation with direct access to functions for setting changes and provides Touch Autofocus. Seven brightness levels are available for better viewing depending on lighting conditions.
Full HD 1080 Video Capture
Full HD Movie mode supports Movie Servo for continuous focus tracking of moving subjects during recording. When shooting video with one of Canon's STM lenses, Movie Servo AF takes advantage of the lens' stepping motor (STM) for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus. Manual exposure settings provide complete control over your shooting, and multiple frame rates and resolutions provide quality-level and stylistic shooting options. The ISO range in Video mode is 100-6400, and is expandable to 12800. Stills can be recorded during video shooting simply by pressing the camera's shutter button. The in-camera microphone records in mono however an external stereo microphone jack is also available.
Compact Form Factor
The Rebel SL1 is a particularly compact and lightweight DSLR, weighing approximately 13 oz.
EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens offers wide-angle to standard length shooting capability specifically designed for APS-C cameras. It is equivalent to a 28.8-88mm focal length in the 35mm format and its minimum focus distance is 9.8". This lens features Canon's Optical Image Stabilization system, providing 4-stops of compensation against the blur caused by slow shutter speeds when shooting hand-held in low light or at longer focal lengths. An internal focusing system provides fast autofocus and with a Stepping Motor (STM) and six group zoom system it supports the Rebel SL1's Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus during video recording. Manual focus override is possible. A high precision aspherical lens reduces chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for sharp imaging and Canon lens coatings provide accurate color balance and minimal ghosting and flare.
Lens Compatibility
The Canon Rebel SL1 is compatible with all EF and EF-S lenses.
9-point Autofocus System
A 9-point AF system (including a high-precision dual-cross center point) provides fast and accurate autofocus performance when shooting with the viewfinder. The Center AF point is AF cross-type at f/5.6, Center AF point is vertical line-sensitive at f/2.8.
Hybrid CMOS AF II
The Hybrid CMOS AF System is utilized when shooting photos and video in Live View. Combining two different kinds of AF-phase and contrast detection-continuous focus tracking becomes faster and more accurate than ever before in Live View. Hybrid CMOS AF II boasts an increased AF area (compared to Hybrid CMOS AF) that covers approximately 80% of the sensor for easier composition.
ISO Range
An ISO Range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) provides low-noise capture in low light situations and saturated colors in bright conditions.
Continuous Shooting
The Rebel SL1 offers continuous shooting rates of 4 fps for up to 7 consecutive RAW files or 28 full resolution JPEG files.
Video Snapshot
With the Video Snapshot feature, the SL1 captures short video clips (of 2, 4 or 8 seconds) and combines them automatically into one video file as a snapshot or highlights album. With no editing needed after shooting, the compiled video is perfect for sharing online or displaying directly on an HDTV via the camera's HDMI port.
Optical Viewfinder
The SL1 features an Optical Viewfinder with 0.87x magnification. Shooting with the optical viewfinder ensures steadier images and is effective when shooting in bright conditions when shooting rapidly. The viewfinder displays exposure, AF, flash, plus other relevant image information right along with the image. Depth Of Field Preview is supported and enabled by pushing the depth-of-field preview button.
Scene Intelligent Auto
Scene Intelligent Auto Mode automatically delivers optimally adjusted photos and offers improved scene detection for better results when shooting at night.
Special Scene Modes
Special Scene Modes including Kids, Food and Candlelight give you advanced presets to ensure the best possible photos under difficult shooting conditions.
Creative Filters
Creative Filters add expressive touches to your images, and can be seen in real time when shooting in Live View. Seven different creative filters are available: Art Bold Effect, Water Painting Effect, Miniature Effect, Fisheye Effect, Grainy B/W, Soft Focus and Toy Camera Effect. Each effect can be applied in three different levels (low, standard and strong). Miniature Effect is also available in Movie mode.
Effect Shot Mode and Background Simulation
The Effect Shot feature automatically captures two shots simultaneously: one without effect, and one with a Picture Style or Creative Filter effect. This makes it easy to see how each effect changes the photo without compromising the original image. Effect Shot mode is available in both Live View and viewfinder shooting, and can be viewed immediately in playback mode. Background Simulation, which makes it easy for beginners to achieve dramatic blurred or sharpened backgrounds. The image is previewed on the LCD screen so you can see in advance how the final image will look.
Lens Aberration Correction
The SL1 features lens correction tools that compensate for specific lens characteristics that can affect image quality. Peripheral Illumination Correction adjusts light falloff in the corner of an image based on the type of lens being used. It has correction data for a number of popular lenses stored in its memory. With the chromatic aberration correction tool distracting color fringing can be corrected at the time of shooting.
JPEG Resizing and In-camera Cropping
For images easier to email, the SL1 can resize JPEG files in-camera, while leaving the original image untouched. And because the SL1 creates large 18MP images, in-camera cropping creates files large enough for direct printing or other purposes. You can choose vertical or horizontal images, and 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, even 1:1 aspect ratios.
Photobook Set-up
Photobook Set-up feature allows you to share you images in book form. Users can easily choose specific images, images in a folder and even all images, then specify their sequence and layout. The results can be printed in book form with ease.
Optional GPS Compatibility
With the optional GPS Receiver GP-E2 attached to the hot shoe or the digital terminal, the SL1 can record location, including latitude, longitude and altitude, and has the ability to track the trajectory of movement with its logging function. An electric compass records the camera's orientation during each shot, and world time information is recorded through GPS syncing.

I'm a film student and amateur photographer, this thing is perfect for both. When I don't want to use my huge professional video camera, I use this thing which has quality that's still fantastic. It's small, yet not too small (and I have big hands), and fits on my rails rig perfectly fine with follow focus and all. The depth of field can go from anything from super-shallow to very deep, and it looks amazing!
Photography wise, I'm a paintball player who also does media on the side, so laying down or sitting on the sideline and dodging paint with this thing is a breeze. Slap a telephoto on it and you're good to go, don't have to worry about taking a hit to the body of the camera because my hands cover nearly the whole thing! It shoots amazing sports shots and is so customizable that you can do basically anything you need to with it. Check out the attached picture, this thing catches paintballs mid-air all the time, makes for really cool shots!
This thing is amazing! Just get it!!!

My SL-1 exposure or shutter timer failed - three times - in Australia, in Costa Rica and in NYC. Canon "repaired" the camera after the first two fails but refused to replace the lemon. I cannot rationalize paying another $[$]for another repair, especially as the lost photo opportunities have convinced me that I cannot rely on this camera. A popular definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome. Canon apparently cannot repair the camera and will not stand behind it. It and its lens set are now pricey paper weights. I am a "semi-pro" photographer and have 5 Canon bodies and many lenses; the SL-1 was intended for a small backup body and a non-intimidating street shooter. After 50 years of shooting with Canon, I am going Sony - makers of better sensors, more reliable electronics and more advanced technologies - with comparable optics.

Comments about EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

I have been using this camera for a year now and I love it. It is nice and small and compact; almost too small. I would recommend a battery grip[@] if using for long periods of time not just for battery life but for comfort as well. This is a fantastic camera for a begginer but if you are going to use for video I would bypass and spend a little extra on the 60D. The video is fantastic but I am a semi-pro filmmaker and looking to upgrade after only one year. I will still keep it as a stills camera because the photos are amazing.

          Comments about EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

          The EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera exceeded my expectations. This is a perfect alternative to bulkier and more expensive cameras with the same high quality that I have come to expect. I am an event photographer by trade, so it is essential to have a camera and lens that I can rely on. It has a shorter battery life than larger Canon models but still lasts more than long enough to finish any job. I would recommend this camera to anyone and would purchase another if I ever need to.

            Comments about EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (White):

            I love this camera! I bought it specifically for travel and I use it for hiking, backpacking, travel, landscapes, and culture as well as some macro around the house.

            It's lightweight and small. I was in ltaly for three months last year and traveling with it was a dream. I was able to put it in my backpack with two lenses and went from Sicily to the Alps. It is reassuring to have the camera and lenses with me and not check them as baggage.

            It has all the features of the larger rebel cameras, (check via the compare feature on the website).

            The EOS SL1 is perfect for the backpacker/traveler who wants the versatility of carrying an SLR and having the option to change lenses.

            B&H was fast and professional and great to work with.

                I have several professional canon cameras. All are to heavy for my wife to use comfortably. This camera fit the bill. It takes fantastic pictures with a high megapixil. It only takes about 4 fps, but that is enough for what she needs. I can recommend this camera to every advanced photographer. It has all the options that you need, at a price you can afford.

                Comments about EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

                The Rebel SL1 is an excellent camera in size and quality. We use the camera in tabletop product photography. Our company is known for our small accessories. The amount that we design and produce gives us a need to have a decent camera to update our website with product photos.

                The DSLR is easily able to be placed on a Davis & Sanford Crosswise CR3-60 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs with a boom extended, and with the weight there is no need for sand bags. Photos are crisp and clear, and that is with the camera set on the tripod with the IS of the lens turned off. The camera is shot tethered to a laptop and that functionality is amazing.

                Now for the not so great, and admittedly these are just little grips from the photographer. While shooting the camera in tethered live view mode, the battery drains like no other. Easily in the set up of 60 - 70 items, with 3 shots of each, the battery will die before we get halfway there. My solution was to just keep an extra battery charged, and am thinking about buying a 3rd battery just in case.

                Also, I was testing the remote control function with a Vello IR-C2 Infrared Remote Control, and the infrared sensor on the DSLR is not located in a convenient spot. Meaning that not every button click on the remote is a shutter released.

                That being said, these are just minor inconveniences. and aside from getting another battery, I may just go with a Canon ACK-E15 AC Adapter Kit and be done with it. The camera works well, and I would totally recommend it for a small business for product photography, or just a beginner who would like a small DSLR to walk about with.

                  Camera is light unless you add an external speedlite. 18-55mm lens is pretty good, but you will want an 85mm for portraits. The fixed LCD is OK, which I have learned to live with.

                  It is so small and light, you don't think it's a DSLR camera. Great for shooting pictures in small areas, and for the most part the pictures with Canon's Digic 5 processor and 18mp are great. The touchscreen makes many functions very easy to set. I use two lens - one the very reasonable and good kit 18-55mm STM and the 40mm f2.8 STM. From the time I have spent with the camera, I keep a hot shoe mounted flash for those cases where a lower ISO is needed,

                  I am a young girl who has never used an expensive camera. My last one was a point and shoot. When I bought this camera I assumed I would need a few weeks to learn how o use it. However, that was not the case. The instructions are very clear and the settings are self explanatory. I am very pleased with the product and could not have asked for a better camera.

                    Excellent small DSLR for traveling light. Technically, the images also appear crisper, with better color, and better autofocus under poor lighting than my old, aged Canon 50d.

                      Like the camera--small, light, responsive. One negative--no way to switch from RAW to jpeg without going into the menu, e.g. no way to set Av for RAW and Auto for jpeg--when you switch, every program switches. But that's not the reason for the review. I have been on the phone with Adobe support for probably 40 hours over 2 weeks and RAW still does not download properly. Do not buy a camera if you don't have the software or real local tech support or you will regret it.

                        I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica, for which I knew I had to have a good camera. I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I still wanted quality shots of wildlife and the adventures I had. This camera was a perfect fit for me because the settings are intuitive and informative (especially for a casual user like me), and I felt like I understood how to use it pretty quickly.

                        I'm not sure how much of this is the camera's fault, but my only complaint is that it was sometimes difficult to take quick shots of wildlife from far away, or when the wildlife was moving behind trees/leaves/branches. I used the sports setting most throughout my trip (and occasionally the SCN setting, which I set to Kids), but even so, the animals sometimes came out a bit blurry/fuzzy in the photos. I'm guessing the problem would be fixed if I purchased a bigger lens, or maybe if I were just a better photographer!

                        Regardless, this is a lovely camera. I'm so glad I purchased it, and I feel like it's a great foray into more professional photography!
