Miniaturizing Canon’s traditional single-lens reflex (SLR) camera would be an additional way for the company to compete with mirrorless offerings from Nikon, Sony, Olympus, and Panasonic. This is something that Canon has hinted at for a long time. Canon has revealed all of its intentions with the release of the EOS 100D and the Rebel SL1, respectively. The Rebel SL1 brazenly combines the DSLR operating trademarks of the Rebel series with an amazingly compact body, and it is marketed as “the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR.” Its official name is “the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR.”

The internal components of the Rebel SL1 have been shrunk, resulting in a more compact shutter mechanism, a thinner sensor module, and a circuit board with a smaller footprint. As a result, the Rebel SL1 is noticeably more compact and lighter than its co-announced counterpart, the Rebel T5i, while maintaining the same 18-megapixel resolution, DIGIC 5 processor, and presumably image quality. In point of fact, the Rebel SL1 is easily the most compact DSLR that we have come across to this point, coming in at a size not too dissimilar to that of ‘SLR-style’ mirrorless devices like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5.
The fact that Canon was able to keep the majority of the controls and functions that are normally available on a camera in the Rebel series is just as astounding as the compact size of the Rebel SL1, which is without a doubt going to attract a lot of people’s attention because of it. Any Canon DSLR user will be familiar with the front dial, as well as the specialized ISO, exposure compensation, and AF/AE lock buttons on this camera. Other features include exposure compensation. Its touchscreen has the same resolution as that found on the Rebel T4i and T5i, although it cannot be articulated like those found on the Rebel cameras.
The Rebel SL1 is the first Canon camera to have version two of the Hybrid CMOS AF technology, which was first introduced in the Rebel T4i. The latest version of Canon’s hybrid phase/contrast detect technology covers a substantially larger amount of the live view region. However, Canon does not make any promises regarding improvements to the focus speed of this system (80 percent of the area). Because of this, it need to become a choice that is much more helpful than the one that is available on the EOS M and the T4i.

- Very compact and lightweight, with a firm grip that's suitable for hands ranging from tiny to medium in size.
- Even images taken at a higher ISO than 6400 are suitable in most cases.
- Excellent LCD with a touch screen that is responsive.
- Using a touchscreen results in fewer fingerprint smudges because to a special coating.
- The live view and video shooting capabilities of the Hybrid AF II / STM lens combo have been significantly enhanced.
- Useful night modes
- The correction for chromatic aberration is effective.
- Stereo mic jack
- Full HD video recording
- It's possible that folks with bigger hands will find it unsuitable.
- There is a possibility that the grip is insufficient while using bigger lenses.
- Integrated autofocus illuminator inside the flash (must have flash engaged to use it)
- When using the Night portrait mode, the flash causes red-eye.
- Non-STM lenses suffer in live view and in movie servo AF
- Default dynamic range lags below its peers
