The EOS SL1 houses an 18MP CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5 image processor and provides sharp details, accurate colors and low-noise imaging in a compact form factor with an easy to use interface. Hybrid CMOS AF II increases autofocus speed and accuracy in Live View and the Rebel SL1 can continuously shoot up to 4 fps in full resolution. Its wide ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) allows for confident shooting in bright and low light situations. 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 3.0" Clear View II touchscreen LCD with 1,040k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing. Its intuitive touchscreen operation includes direct access to settings adjustments and Touch Autofocus. An optical viewfinder with 0.87x magnification is also available for stable eye-level composition.
The EOS Rebel SL1 is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses. Included here is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens which offers wide-angle to standard length shooting optimized 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". It features Canon's Optical Image Stabilization system, an inner focusing system and a Stepping Motor (STM) for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus during video recording.
Also included is the EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III lens which, for its powerful zoom range, is a compact, lightweight lens to match the Sl1. It features an all-metal mount and its 35mm focal length equivalency is 120-480mm.
