Designed for entry-level photographers, the Canon Rebel SL2 DSLR is aimed at those stepping up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera. This small yet powerful camera features what’s claimed to be the world’s fastest AF speed at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame.
Canon says that when it was designing the SL2 it took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result, says the company, was the creation of a convenient new user interface called Feature Assistant. With the EOS Rebel SL2 camera, users will be able to see on the camera’s Vari-angle Touch Screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking camera settings like aperture and exposure compensation can alter the image they are about to capture.
The SL2 features several other enhancements over its predecessor model, including:
- 24.2-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor
- Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- 3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD Touch-Screen
- built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth technology
- Full HD 60p and external microphone input
- DIGIC 7 image processor
- ISO 100-25600
- optical viewfinder with a 9-point AF system
The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is scheduled to be available in late July for a retail price of $899.99 with the Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.
