Defined by its notably sleek form factor, the black Canon EOS Rebel SL3 is a versatile DSLR offering an ideal mix of stills and video capabilities. Featuring a 24.1MP APS-C-format CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor, high-resolution stills and UHD 4K video recording are possible, along with a wide ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions.

Benefitting the imaging attributes, the sensor's design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for quick, accurate, and smooth focusing performance when recording movies or shooting stills in live view. When shooting stills using the optical viewfinder, a 9-point phase-detection system is used for quick and accurate focusing in a variety of shooting scenarios.

Within the compact body design, a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD is featured for intuitive settings control and live view monitoring, and it uses a vari-angle design to permit easier viewing from high and low working angles. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi is available for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.

24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor

Both a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 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 suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity. The processor also enables up to 5 fps continuous shooting as well as UHD 4K video recording and a 4K time-lapse movie mode.

UHD 4K Video Recording

In addition to stills recording, the SL3 also supports UHD 4K24p video recording, as well as Full HD and HD recording. 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. Movie Digital IS also helps to steady recordings by minimizing the appearance of camera shake across five axes for smoother footage. Additionally, an external microphone jack is incorporated in the body design for greater control over your recorded sound.

Employing the video capabilities, a dedicated Time-Lapse Movie mode can also be used to creatively depict subjects over a longer span of time. Interval settings between 1 second and 60 minutes are available for between 2 and 3600 consecutive frames. These individual frames can then be automatically compiled into a 4K or Full HD video file for seamless playback.

9-Point Phase-Detection AF 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. Eye Detection AF can also be employed to prioritize focus on a recognized subject's eye. 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.

Body Design and Wireless Connectivity

  • 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 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 1630 shots per charge when working with the viewfinder, or approximately 350 shots per charge when working in live view.

Canon Rebel SL3 Reviews

Great compact crop body

By Barbara
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-12

I have had the old SL1 along with my pro gear for a compact light wt option, decided recently to grab this upgrade while still available. I will probably get the pro mirrorless R7 for long lenses but the compact 55-250 lens that came with my SL1 bundle has been a perfect, suprisingly sharp, compact zoom to use with it. Saves a lot of weight and space in my pack when I need to hike. I am a serious amateur, for a couple decades, but have always trusted Canon gear.

Great pictures!

We bought this Canon to replace a 10 year old Nikon because a Nikon was not available. We took off on a trip to Israel and Jordan right after getting it. We love the simplicity of operation and the quality of pictures. We are very happy with this camera. B&H service was excellent.

Upgraded from a 40D and the image quality is great. Shoots fast even in low-lit scenes. AF works well so far. Wanted something compatible with my old lenses (EFS based).

SL3 used for Astrophotography

By Jim
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-17

I bought the Canon SL3 to use with my telescopes for astrophotography. I has worked out well. I use it on manual mode to be able to set my pictures parameters for the right shutter speed and ISO settings. I bought a 512GB SD card to get enough memory for a night of shooting. The SL3 has a remote port and I use an intervalometer to time my shooting sessions. I purchased the battery eliminator to power it so I don't have to worry about the battery dying half way through the night. The, live view, feature allow me to set up my focus and framing before I run a session. It's light weight helps keep the weight down of my rig so my mount tracks really well.

Dynamite comes in a small package. The Canon EOS Rebel SL-3 is a compact but a very satisfying DSLR. I'm impressed with its versatility and simplicity to use.

Is this a good backup pro camera for portraiture? I have a 70D that I love, but need a backup camera. I like that this is lightweight and less expensive, but don't want it to be a major step down from what I'm used to. TIA!
Asked by: Emily
My wife uses it, and she is very happy with it. You may note a few things lacking, such as focus points (it has only 9), but to compensate the dual-pixel focusing is very good. It is is a very good camera, and she has taken very good photos with it.

what is the difference with the Canon M50 mark ii?
Asked by: Jose
The differences between the SL3 and the M50 Mark II are feature-based. Aside from it being a mirrorless camera, the M50 II would have a higher continuous shooting rate, a greater number of autofocus points and Eye AF over the SL3.

Can you use a Sigma 28-300mm lens on this body?
Asked by: Leif
My wife uses a Tamron 16-300mm on the SL3, and it's OK. A little bit of a problem focusing at the end of the range (250-300mm), but nothing serious. But your best bet is to go to Sigma's website and see if there are any issues or if you need to update the firmware on the lens, which sometimes happens. As far as I know Sigma does the compatibility updates for free.

where is the Rebel SL3 made?

where is the Rebel SL3 made?
Asked by: Chad
I don't know, but the EOS Rebel SL3's very similar predecessor, the EOS Rebel SL2, was made in Taiwan, and so it seems likely that the SL3 is made there too. Actually, however, I'd suggest forgetting about where the camera is made; what's important is who is ensuring that it's made well, and experience with Canon leads to the belief that wherever the SL3 is made, it will be made well. One benefit of globalization is that goods can be made all round the world, depending on what place is economically advantageous, and then the economic benefits can be passed on to consumers. For example, the SL3's battery is made in China, while the battery charger comes from the Philippines and the camera (probably) from Taiwan. It all goes together, and it works. If you like it, just buy it, and forget about silly countries. The key is not China or the Philippines or Taiwan, but Canon!
