Canon has introduced the EOS Rebel SL3, compact DSLR with a 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor and a weight of just 15.84 ounces.
The shrinkage makes the EOS Rebel SL3 Canon’s smallest and lightest DSLR to date. There’s a number of firsts for the EOS line, such as Dual Pixel autofocus with eye detection in live view the shooting mode, a DIGIC 8 processor and a 3-inch flip-touchscreen that is paired with a lens capable of capturing footage in 4K.
The EOS Rebel SL3 also offers more hands-on photographers an optical system with 9 AF points and spot focus, allowing users to accurately select the area they wish to highlight. While it can record in 4K, the recording will not work in conjunction with its Dual Pixel autofocus.
Canon has however packed the compact DSLR with plenty of tricks, giving the EOS Rebel SL3 an ISO that ranges up to 25,600 (51,200 expanded) and can deliver 1,600 pictures on one charge.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL3 will hit stores towards the end of April with a base price of $600 USD.
