Canon Rebel SL2 overview

  • 1Description

With a compact and lightweight body, the black Canon EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera provides users with a fully-featured system that won't weigh them down. Packed into the tiny body is a capable 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 Image Processor, both of which work together to create sharp, vivid images at native sensitivities up to ISO 25600 and extended sensitivities up to ISO 51200. Video shooting has received a boost with Full HD 1080p recording possible at up to 60 fps. The SL2 also manages some significant body upgrades, with the main addition being a 3.0" vari-angle touchscreen LCD for intuitive operation and the ability to work at odd angles with relative ease.

As a DSLR, the SL2 obviously retains the optical viewfinder for fast, natural composition of your images and it can shoot continuously at speeds up to 5 fps. This setup also features a 9-point AF system for capturing tack sharp images. If you are working in Live View or shooting video, the SL2 does offer Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, providing fast, accurate focusing in these modes and with intuitive control via the touchscreen. Additionally, the SL2 has a microphone input for higher quality audio recording during movie shooting.

For those inclined to share their journeys, the SL2 features built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth, making connecting to a smart device fast and simple. This setup permits wireless control over camera settings as well as the ability to transfer files to your phone. The SL2 also offers a Feature Assistant to help new shooters learn how to use the camera and its functions.

24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor
Both a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible native ISO 100-25600 range, which can be extended to ISO 51200, suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity. The processor also contributes to a fast 6 fps continuous shooting rate for photographing fast-moving subjects.
9-Point AF System and Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Benefitting stills shooting with the optical viewfinder, a 9-point phase-detection autofocus system provides quick and precise focusing in difficult lighting conditions. The center point is also a cross-type for enhanced accuracy and speed. When recording video, or shooting in live view, a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is employed that offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
Full HD 1080p Video Recording
In addition to stills recording, the SL2 also supports Full HD 1080p video recording at up to 60 fps in the MP4 format. Video recording is benefitted by the inclusion of Dual Pixel CMOS AF and the Movie Servo AF focusing functions, as well as the touchscreen design of the LCD monitor for intuitive control. Additionally, an external microphone jack is incorporated in the body design for greater control over your recorded sound.
Body Design and Other Features
  • Large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a vari-angle design to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Optical pentamirror viewfinder serves a clear means for eye-level shooting.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
  • Included LP-E17 rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 820 shots per charge.
  • A Feature Assistant user interface is available to highlight and guide use of specific camera modes and features.

    Canon Rebel SL2 reviews

    EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera (Black, Body Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High performing lightweight I primarily shoot portraits and events. I just shot 500 images at a conference. Things I really like: 1. The new menu system is very easy to use and allows quick changes to metering mode, ISO, and white balance. 2. The flip screen is great for composing and the dual pixel touch screen auto focus allows fast and accurate focusing. 3. It is an excellent high performing mirrorless alternative for a much lower price. 4. It has one more stop of low light performance than the SL1. I took some very usable ISO 6400 shots. To me, it is like a 2/3 size Canon 80D. I think it is the sweet spot in performance and price in the Canon APS-C line up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cross between an M5 and 80D I wanted a camera that is light quick and with good image quality. I have an SL1 and like its size and weight but compared to the newer Canon sensors the image quality is not as good. I like my M5 but I miss using an SLR.. I like my 80D but on my last trip to SE Asia my carry on bag was over weight.. It had my 80D some lenses a small flash my M3 some lenses for it and my netbook. So next trip it will be the SL2 and a few lenses like the kit lens the 55-250 for a light telephoto, the 10-18 for wide and 270EX II for a flash...� So far the images from the SL2 look just as good as the 80D or M5

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little camera Been shooting a 6D for 3 years...thought I would give this little guy a try. Ordered it from BH....shipped immediately as usual. I did rent one from borrowlenses to try it before I paid out the cash. This camera is awesome. I have used it on 3 photoshoots so far along with the 6D, the photos are indistinguishable from each other. the sl2 is so small and light that i just ordered the 24mm pancake lens to keep it small to travel with. love it as a second camera to the 6d. I cannot say enough good about it. Buy it, you will not be disappointed. I shot a few shots at 8000 iso and the shots were great. Buy it! and buy it from BH. Here's a shot i did in almost dark at 8000 iso with no flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astrophotography Upgrade For years I have used a Canon Rebel XT for astrophotography, I finally decided it was time to modernize, and I'm very happy I did. Best points for me: -The tilt-able view screen and Live View mode is a real back-saver: no more contortions to see through the view finder -Long exposure noise reduction does dark frame capture and subtraction -Controls are similar enough in layout that by the end of the first night I was not fumbling to find things in the dark -The only downside is the size of the images means processing takes longer :-) I've uploaded an image that combines the best 8 (of 16) 90s exposures of M51 the Whirlpool Galaxy. ISO 1600. Noise reduction on. cropped (not resized) to 1920x1080 and converted to png for use as wallpaper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon EOS Rebel SL2 (body only-black) Outstanding DSLR from Canon I've used Canon cameras for over 40 yrs. and I haven't been disappointed yet by one their products. This camera is a great tool for digital photography. Light weight, compact yet has the bells and whistles of many higher priced cameras. Particularly like the WiFi feature. It allows me to send pics to my iPhone with no problem. I also like that it's 24MP w/ a DIGIC 7 Image Processor. Takes all of my Canon EOS lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lightweight DSLR Small, lightweight, ground breaking dual pixel AF, articulating screen, updated 24MP sensor, latest digic 7 image processor. Performed flawlessly with the 55-250mm IS STM and 35mm IS STM Macro. Attached images are with no sharpening. Canon's Digital Lens Optimizer does the magic.
    Date published: 2017-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase. I have to agree with the other reviewers. I downsized from a Canon 7D and I have to say this little camera out shines the 7D for me. The size and weight is perfect for what I really need. A powerful little camera.
    Date published: 2017-09-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you want all the IQ without the size... I primarily shoot 2 things: sports and travel.� My 7D Mark II is great for sports, but a few years behind in IQ, especially in low light.� It's also built for abuse, meaning it's heavy...and I was tired of lugging it an L series lenses around the globe.� I wanted a compact setup that was also not going to attract attention of thieves and other nefarious folks.�� I figured for $500 for the same sensor as the 80D and it's small size,� it was worth the try. I already had several EF-S lenses that matched up well: 10-18mm, 18-135mm, 24mm f2.8 pancake, and the f1.8 nifty 50.� I put about a thousand clicks on it recently with 10 days in Budapest, Vienna, and Prague.� The small size and light weight was exactly what I hoped for - features such as the tilty flippy screen were great for composition and I used the wifi feature to back my SD cards up to my iPad everyday, which meant I got to leave my laptop at home (yay!) and it was nice to be able to straight from camera to my iPhone and post social media on occasion.� I shot some video, both day and night (fireworks) and as usual for Canon, it was flawless,� The DPAF just works and I found myself sometimes shooting pics in live view (gasp) because I was able to use the DPAF there vs the 9 viewfinder focus points.� Live view also offers 40-something focus points, if you use shutter-release focusing.� You can configure the camera for back-button focusing, but it was awkward for my larger hands, so I did't stick with that.� I found shutter release focusing to work just fine for my use. All told, the SL2 is exactly what I wanted: compact, great IQ, good low light for an APS-C sensor, same Canon menus (or the beginners icon-based view is available too - just not for me), and just works well.� The images reaffirmed what I felt - I never felt like I was missing my 7D or L lenses in these situations.
