The new Canon EOS Rebel SL3 is here and it is bringing a nice set of improvements to the popular EOS Rebel SL2 while maintaining the same diminutive form factor that makes the EOS Rebel SL-series cameras the smallest and lightest cameras of the EOS DSLR lineup.
Advancements over its predecessor come in all of the areas you would expect, but the biggest splash of the new camera is its ability to capture 4K video and 4K time-lapse, where the SL2 was languishing in the dark ages with (yawn) only 1080p HD recording. The camera houses an APS-C format (1.6x crop factor) CMOS sensor with 24.1MP (shedding 100 pixels off the SL2’s sensor) and the engine inside is the next generation DIGIC 8 Image Processor. Many other specs stay the same—3" tilting and swiveling LCD, ISO 100-25600, 9-point eye-detection autofocus, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
And, like the SL2 before it, the new EOS SL3 is available in black or white, outfitted with a Canon 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.
Smaller and lighter than some mirrorless cameras, does the 4K-capable EOS Rebel SL3 make it to your wish list or into your camera bag? Let us know in the Comments section, below.
