    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

    The camera is on the small side but has been consistently taking great pics. The weight of the lenses surprised me, with how light they were....unlike my old FD lenses. If you add an adapter to your purchase you can use your old lenses again! I bought the Vello adapter for my SL1. FD to EOS. Excellent camera.

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

      Online the camera looked wonderful and when it arrived in the mail, it was even better! Everything came well protected, the camera was easy to use and understand, the guides provided are very helpful and the bag fits everything perfectly. I'm new to photography and this camera has served me well from pictures of my family, my cats, and nature. Depending on the lens, both are fairly easy to focus and the lightweight it good for bringing the camera on long hikes/walks. The pictures are a great quality, especially with natural lighting.

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

      You get what you pay for. This will always be an entry level DSLR. That being said, I love the user interface that Canon cameras give you, no matter the level. For my wife and I who are just beginner photographers, this is plenty. Sure, it doesn't perform super well at high ISO, but if you're just the casual photographer, or even a beginner student, you won't be disappointed by this camera. Especially nice is the fact that this package comes with two lenses, giving you a lot of versatility from the get go. The touch screen is a nice side benefit as well. Overall great value for the price.

        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

        Love the size and weight of this DSLR. Fits my hands perfectly. But note: my husband says it's too small for his hands. The SL1 takes great photos and I'm even happy with the kit 75-300 lens. My first week out with the camera I shot over 2,000 photos of coastal birds. I would definitely recommend this camera for someone wanting to step up from a point and shoot.

          The camera is great, awesome quality and my pictures/videos come out spectacular even for a newbie like me. The staff is very knowledgeable, i was able to get expert advice on the camera and also how to save money. I ended up buying it online to save $ on sales tax as their staff let me know about and i got free shipping and received it the next day on Christmas EVE!!! excellent service, they are true professionals

          This camera is small, but has the same recurses a bigger one would have. I took great pictures with it! I think it would get better only because of some noise, no panoramic pictures, a small flash delay and... the price.

          Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

          This isn't your 5DMIII, but this camera is amazing. I have used it on a few photo shoots and it is definitely impressive for the price and size. The touch screen is amazing to use too. I didn't think I would use it until I gave it a try. It's super handy! The only complaint I have is that sometimes it can be tough in low lighting, but nothing a tripod or flash can't fix. A great little camera for the traveling (in my case college) photographer!

              Comments about Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm STM and 75-300mm Lenses:

              My dad told me about B&H so I checked it out and I'm glad I did!

              I am an amateur at best and use this camera for regular everyday photo taking. It is extremely light, compact and super easy to use. Most DSLR cameras I found had a lot of features to learn about whereas, the SL1 is incredibly easy to use. Sure, all the manual settings are there to use if needed. But, with all the preset features and menu options, it's just perfect for anyone who mostly uses a point and shoot camera. You will be thrilled with the quality of the pictures for sure.

              The value was second to none and B&H was wonderful to deal with. Super fast shipping and follow up too.
