      I am clearly a beginning amateur and I found the camera easy to operate, at least the basics, and my first photos have been very good compared to tablet/phone photos.

        I purchased this for taking pictures of the kids during activities, birthday celebrations, nature shots and hunting. Love the compact size and the view of the screen on the back is crystal clear. Simple to operate and great to have so many fun ways to "play" with your pictures form B&W to Fish eye.

              I am a petite person and loved this camera. Fits perfectly in my small hands and is extremely light compared to other Canon cameras. I definitely think the EF-40mm lens would be a better lens choice as it keeps things light and small.

              Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens (Black):

              I purchased this for my wife as a starter DSLR. She had an advanced point and shoot (Canon SX260 HS) and used the manual features, and she had occasionally used my older EOS T2i (she had complained about the size and weight).The small size and weight are suited for her small hands. I also have enjoyed using the camera because of it's portability. I call it a "mini T5i"; which it basically is.If you shoot Live mode or go through the menus (especially while training) it will eat up the battery fast. Get a spare battery, anyway!

                I needed a back up to my 5D Mark II and something smaller to use for informal environments. Well I was pleasantly surprised with the SL1. All the positive reviews are right on the money. Very portable, low noise, and touch screen controls - which surprised me at how much I liked using it. It's small but even with my big hands, I have no problem with using it. That said it feels more balanced with prime or non-L lenses. I've been using a Canon 28mm, 40mm and a Sigma 15mm fisheye and it feels nicely balanced. Also, I was impressed with the 18-55mm STM kit lens - surprisingly sharp.

                Used this camera for the first time on vacations and it work perfect for pics at night at the beach, inside the restaurant, etc...
                Good size and weight, easy to carry around. Lots of features, great potential.
