Canon has launched the EOS Rebel SL1 digital SLR, the ‘world’s smallest and lightest DSLR’ camera (among digital SLR cameras which use APS-C size equivalent sensors).
The EOS Rebel SL1 features a 18.0-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The new camera body is 4.6″ (w) x 3.57″ (h) x 2.74″ (d), and weighs 14.36 oz. In comparison, the EOS Rebel SL1 is approximately 25 percent smaller and 28 percent lighter than the EOS Rebel T4i digital camera.
The camera includes a nine-point center cross-type autofocus (AF) system. The AF system also includes a Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor, and features Canon’s Movie Servo AF, which provides continuous AF tracking of moving subjects.

The EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera is scheduled to be available in April for $649.99 for the body alone, or $799.99 bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens.
