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.

Pictures from this SL2 camera have too much yellow on the skin, especially if taken in low light or using flash. How do I adjust it on camera?
Asked by: Hung
To adjust the color when using the Canon SL2, set the camera to "M" mode, and go to the Camera menu, there one will see the various settings: Picture Size, Color space (should be set at Adobe RGB), and see the "Picture Style" setting choices. There you can choose, portrait mode to get the best skin tones with the camera. It will help to experiment with different settings. The other important setting on the camera is "White Balance". The factory setting is set on "Auto White balance". There are specific settings for ,daylight, shadows, flash ,tungsten light, and custom balance. when using your flash try the specific flash setting to see if it will improve your colors, as well as choosing the right "picture style"
