24 July 2013
  • Summary: The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 / 100D is an ideal camera for consumer users looking for better image quality, with improved Live View and Movie-mode autofocus in a small body. Its touchscreen interface offers a modern set of digital controls in a camera that will still feel familiar to more traditional SLR users.
  • Pros: Very small and light with good grip for small to medium-size hands, High ISO shots are quite usable, even above ISO 6400, Excellent LCD and responsive touchscreen, Special coating minimizes fingerprint smudges from touchscreen use, Hybrid AF II / STM lens combo is noticeably improved for live view and movie shooting, Useful night modes, Chromatic aberration correction works well, Stereo mic jack, Full HD video recording
  • Cons: May be too small for those with larger hands, Grip may be insufficient for use with larger lenses, AF illuminator integrated into flash (must have flash engaged to use it), Flash produces red-eye in Night portrait mode, Non-STM lenses struggle in live view and in movie servo AF, Default dynamic range lags behind its peers

Canon EOS 100D Review

Tech2
24 July 2013
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 100D is a good camera and offers all the goodies expected out of a Canon DSLR. Image quality is good and the STM lens ensures that there is fairly little AF motor noise while recording videos. Considering it houses a standard APS-C sensor, the camera is compatible with all EF and EF-S lenses. The 100D has everything going for it except its cost. At an official pricing of Rs. 53,995 with the 18-55mm STM kit lens (Rs.

Canon's small dSLR simply isn't small enough

CNET
24 July 2013
  • Summary: While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
  • Cons: It's pretty slim on features.

Canon SL1

imaging-resource.com
17 July 2013
  • Summary: SL1 Review Summary : The Canon SL1 is the smallest and lightest DSLR that we've ever reviewed, delivering DSLR performance and image quality in a body that's almost as small as today's mirrorless camera models. Its features and image quality rival those of its bigger siblings, the Canon Rebel T4i and T5i. But it's not just a miniaturized version of those DSLRs; it's actually better in some ways, most notably its autofocus speed and video skills.
  • Pros: Pros : Extremely compact and lightweight for a DSLR; Delivers good image quality that's virtually identical to the Canon T4i/T5i; Accurate and relatively fast autofocus with improved Live View and Movie Hybrid CMOS II AF; Full 1080p HD movie recording; Better-than average kit lens (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM).
  • Cons: Cons : Still not as compact as most mirrorless cameras; Slightly worse than average dynamic range and high ISO performance; Poor battery life.

Canon EOS Rebel SL1 / 100D

Camera Labs
1 March 2013
  • Summary: It's obviously a very small body in DSLR terms, but rarely felt cramped or compromised in my tests, although those with larger hands may find it a step too far. The optical viewfinder is roughly the same size as those on other entry-level DSLRs, so is fairly small, but it's still very usable.
  • Pros: World's smallest DSLR. Truly compact body., Good photo and video quality., 1080p movies with respectable continuous AF., Excellent touch-screen interface., Microphone input., Remote control over USB using PCs or Macs., New kit lens with very quiet AF and non-rotating barrel.
  • Cons: Modest continuous shooting speed at 4fps., No built-in Wifi and no Canon accessory either., Screen doesn't flip-out, it's fixed in position., Basic auto exposure bracketing of three frames., No auto-panorama mode in-camera., Non adjustable AF area size in Live View., Loses size advantage once you fit most Canon lenses.
