Combining ease-of-use with high-image quality, Canon today unveiled the EOS Rebel SL3 DSLR camera, the smallest and lightest product within the current EOS lineup.
Weighing just 15.84 oz1, the EOS Rebel SL3 offers users a compact system delivering high-resolution images – complete with an APS-C imaging sensor, DIGIC 8 Image Processor and 3.0-inch vari-angle LCD touchscreen as well as 4K video, a first for the EOS Rebel lineup.
The new camera is compatible with Canon’s full line of interchangeable EF and EF-S lenses and has the ability to instantly send images to compatible smartphones through Auto Image Transfer via Wi-Fi connectivity.
The EOS Rebel SL3 carries a 24.1 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, enabling users to snap photos across a multitude of settings. The camera is equipped with Canon’s DIGIC 8 processor – first introduced in the EOS M50 and later built into the EOS R full-frame mirrorless system. DIGIC 8 helps improve autofocus performance and allows for the processing of 4K video and 4K time-lapse movies.
The EOS Rebel SL3 features autofocus (AF) capabilities, delivering nine AF points across the optical viewfinder. This includes a new Spot AF which allows users to focus on a precise area within the subject. The EOS Rebel SL3 is the first DSLR in the Canon EOS line to feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF3 with Eye Detection AF in Live View shooting mode. With its optical viewfinder and Live View LCD monitor, photographers can enjoy two different ways of shooting and customize their experience based on the scene. The system is also the first Canon EOS SLR to incorporate a Smooth Skin setting, which can help render skin tones as well as Creative Assist – an interface by which users can check and seamlessly change shooting conditions in Live View – such as white balance or brightness – in real time.
Additional key features of the EOS Rebel SL3 camera include:
- Feature Assistant that guides and offers tips for more effective shooting
- Continuous shooting mode up to 5.0 fps
- Digital Lens Optimizer that corrects optical shifting automatically, even without a computer
The EOS Rebel SL3 will be available toward the end of April for purchase in black and white color options for an estimated retail price of $599.99, for the body only and $749.99 for the body with a EF-S 18-55 f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.
