Are these the Canon Rebel SL2 specifications? [CW3]

Are These The Canon Rebel SL2 Specifications? [CW3]

We have been tipped with a list of specifications for the upcoming Canon Rebel SL2.

The specification list seems pretty much to be the same as for the EOS 800D/Rebel T7i, announced a few months ago. It’s not unlikely that the Rebel SL2 and the Rebel T7i have same or similar specifications.

The Canon Rebel SL2 might have:

  • 24MP sensor
  • 3″ vari-angle and touchscreen display
  • 1080p/60 fps
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • WiFi/NFC
  • 45 points AF
  • Digic 7
  • ISO 51200
  • HDR movie, time-lapse movie
  • Will still be the world’s smallest DSLR

My take: the list above is plausible, the Rebel SL2 may indeed have specifications and features that are very similar if not the same as other entry-level Canon Rebel DSLRs.

We expect the Rebel SL2 to be announced on June 29, 2017, together with the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and a new entry-level mirrorless camera.

Stay tuned!

2. Corrects the phenomenon of Err70 which occurs with certain combinations of settings.

3. Corrects the level display when the camera is held in the vertical orientation with the hand grip pointing downward.

4. Corrects a phenomenon in which, when using certain CF cards, it may take approximately five seconds for the camera to power on depending on when the camera’s power switch was turned <ON>.

Please review the instructions thoroughly before updating the firmware on your camera.
The firmware update takes approximately 6 minutes.

Please note that the firmware for EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R is different.

More Canon EOS 6D Mark II specification suggestions emerge


canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

At less than a 3 weeks from the supposed Canon EOS 6D Mark II announcement we still know very little about Canon’s next entry-level fullframe DSLR. Very weird. Some new specification suggestions emerged, and we are here to report.

Over the last 2 years we got a lot of suggestions, which you can see in the list below. Most of the EOS 6D Mark II specifications floating around on the web leaked first here on Canon Watch. The list below is the same, original list all other sites are reposting. I added the new specification suggestions in italics.

  • All new sensor, rumored to have 26MP (we were told 28MP and reported first here and here and here)
  • Tilting LCD (we reported first here)
  • Touchscreen (we reported first here)
  • DIGIC 7
  • Aiming for a sub $2000 USD body only price (we told you first here)
  • Dual Pixel AF (we reported first here)
  • No 4K, 1080/60 instead (we reported first)
  • Wifi, NFC & other connectivity (we reported first in 2015)
  • Larger viewfinder (possibly 100%)
  • New AF system (we reported first here)
  • New battery grip BG-E21
  • HDR movie
  • Time lapse mode

Knowing the EOS 6D Mark II will make HDR movies and have a time lapse mode are not really earthshaking leaks, but still better than nothing.

Latest rumor about the announcement points to June 29, 2017. Stay tuned!
