Rebel SL2 at a glance:

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor
  • 3″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps

  • Native ISO 25600, Extended to ISO 51200
  • Up to 5 fps Continuous Shooting
  • Feature Assistant; Microphone Input
  • Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth

The new Canon Rebel SL2 aims at beginners and people new to photography and DSLRs, and it seems Canon hit the mark with their diminutive DSLR. The Rebel SL2 not only is easy to handle (especially with the “Feature Assistant”, see video below) but also delivers DSLR image quality.

DPReview posted a “shooting experience” article about the Canon Rebel SL2, and along with it also a gallery of sample shots. In the conclusion they write:

Overall, the SL2 suits the beginning or casual photographer quite well. It has a very simple interface if you want to use it, as well as the traditional Canon menus if you don’t. Its Auto and Scene modes always seemed to make appropriate choices, and the resulting photos were in-focus, well-exposed and with pleasant ‘Canon’ colors, though they are slightly noisy. And when it was time to share my photos, it couldn’t have been any easier. Based on my experiences thus far, I’d definitely recommend the SL2 to friends and family looking for an easy-to-use and portable camera.

Canon really tried to make things easy for beginners. The “Feature Assistant” featured on the Rebel SL2 serves this purpose. The video below gives a quick introduction.

EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Cameras Provide Photographers with Improved Features over Predecessors

MELVILLE, N.Y., June 29, 2017 – In celebration of the innovation behind today’s generation of high-quality digital SLR cameras on National Camera Day, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras designed for advanced-amateur and entry-level photographers, respectively. The EOS 6D Mark II camera is ideal for budding photographers looking to take their creative DSLR photography skills to the next level by shooting with a Full-frame CMOS sensor DSLR camera to capture beautiful high-quality portraits and striking landscapes, even in low-light situations. The EOS Rebel SL2 is a small, light, and compact camera with high-performance capability that allows users to get creative when capturing their special family moments or travel experiences.

“It seems fitting that today, a day set aside to commemorate the invention of a tool that forever changed how we view the world, we introduce two new DSLR cameras to the Canon family,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A. “In an industry where choices are abundant, providing consumers with the photographic tools that match their developing skill levels as they continue to embrace their passion for photography is a long-standing goal of Canon and stands at the core of our research and development. The new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras are the result of Canon’s dedication to providing a wide range of camera choices for photographers of all skill levels, whether it’s someone taking their first picture or video with a DSLR camera or those looking to make the jump to a Full-Frame sensor camera.”

“After just one day in Yellowstone National Park with the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera, it was clear that the camera is greatly improved over its predecessor,” said acclaimed nature photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones. “Landscape and nature photographers will be very happy. The new and improved autofocus is way ahead of the previous generation and performed extremely well, even in very low-light situations.”

EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera

Stepping up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera for photography can be intimidating. With the introduction of the new EOS Rebel SL2, a powerful, small, and lightweight DSLR camera, Canon hopes to alleviate some of those concerns for first-time DSLR users.

This small yet powerful camera features the world’s fastest AF speed* at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame. When designing the new EOS Rebel SL2 camera, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result 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, thus guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look.

The EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR camera features several other enhancements over its predecessor model, the EOS Rebel SL1, including:

  • 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD Touch-Screen,
  • Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 Technology
  • Full HD 60p & External Microphone Input
  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-25600
  • Optical Viewfinder with a 9-point AF System
  • Feature Assistant
  • Small and Lightweight Body

Pricing and Availability

The EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera is scheduled to be available in late July 2017 for an estimated retail price of $1,999.00 for body only, $3,099.00 with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM II lens and $2,599.00 with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 STM lens**.

Are these the Canon Rebel SL2 specifications? [CW3]

Rebel SL2

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!

Canon EOS 6D Mark II coming June 29, featuring 26MP sensor? [CW3]


canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

The rumor mill is getting hot on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. A new rumor suggests the EOS 6D Mark II may have a 26MP sensor, and that it may be announced on June 29.

Previously, we got rumor for an announcement on July 20/21. Then, some leaked information about the EOS 6D Mark II and other unregistered gear made me think Canon may announce it earlier. The latest announcement rumor suggests June 29 for the announcement. The 6D Mark II should then ship in August.

The other interesting bit concerns the image sensor. Until now the rumoured resolution was 28MP. The new rumor suggests it will be 26MP. It’s still suggested it will be a completely new sensor (which also the EOS 6D got when released).

We still have no reliable information about the feature set. For the time being, the following (suggested to us over the last 2 years) are likely to be EOS 6D Mark II features:

  • A newly developed sensor, 26MP is the latest rumoured resolution
  • Dual Pixel AF will be on board
  • Price around $2,000
  • Unlikely to have 4K video
  • Upgraded AF system
  • Touchscreen
  • Tiltable display
  • Digic 7
  • WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Larger viewfinder than EOS 6D
  • Slightly larger than EOS 6D
  • New battery grip BG-E21

The announcement of the EOS 6D Mark II will go along with the announcement for the Rebel SL2 and a new entry-level mirrorless camera.

All Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors.

Stay tuned!
