Summary: The camera itself seemed good for the weight and for small hands. It is 2 plus for the body of the camera.. All the accessories I am not sure as I did not see everything and I did not take two many pictures to be able to say more
Excerpt: Tiny little camera but takes quality pictures. For no reason, it stopped focusing until I turned it off a couple of times....the pop up flash game me an error message twice too so I can't recommend this camera too highly. I returned it to Adorama and haven't heard anything from them for a week since it arrived at their return facility on December 31.....So the camera and the seller won't get high marks from me...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Summary: I got the EOS Rebel SL1 for its size and weight. I wanted something light and smaller enough due to wrist (Photoshop mouse-itis) problems, but I didn't want a limited point and shoot. I just could not use my way bigger and heavy 5-year old DSLR anymore, a day of use gave me days of aching wrist pain. So I gave this a try. I LOVE the feel in hand. I mostly use the manual, shutter- and aperture priority modes. I can't comment on the pre-sets or video, never use them.
Summary: I'll leave the camera specifics and superlatives to better qualified users. I love the size and light-weight. Bonehead simple to use. The only thing I have to say here is that the battery doesn't last very long (half-day in my experience) which is close to a deal-killer for me. Prepare to buy a half dozen back-up batteries and charge them all up before heading out for an extended photo shoot.
Pros: small size and light-weight easy to use full manual on cd
Cons: battery doesn't last long no lens hoods basic print manual is just ok
Summary: 2200mAh? I don't think so... Original battery from Canon (EOS-M)which is rated at 800mAh lasts 2 times longer than this battery. If you need to shoot video, think twice before buying this. If you only shoot photo, then this might be ok since it is very cheap compared to Canon battery.
Summary: I just came to this camera from a 5D Mark II. Simply can't hold it steady anymore due to arthritis and you can't always use a tripod, which I hate anyway. I have been reading reviews since before and after my purchase. With the exception of one review (not on this site), no one has mentioned the noise. This is astounding to me as I find it unacceptable.
Excerpt: Bought this camera as a another backup to my 5D MkII and as my go-to travel camera when I don't want to pack a big kit. So far, I've put about 1,500 images though it and have the following observations: 1- image quality is great. On par or better than a 7D I tested it against. Didn't compare it to the 5D yet, but will. I'll shoot some test RAW files and run them through Adobe Bridge at equal resolutions. 2- Shot my son's soccer match. Blew through about 1,000 shots.
Summary: Decent enough equipment, but the more I'm learning about DSLR the more I think that this feels like an entry level product. Comes with a basic lens but you will need to add further lenses and equipment to take full advantage of the product.
