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.
24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera has a powerful 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that can capture high-resolution images of immense quality in a wide variety of lighting situations. Take photos and videos with fine details and dynamic, rich colors from the deepest reds to emerald greens to lush blues and purples. Simply turn the camera on and feel confident that the results will be stunning whether they are being shared with your friends on social media or blown up into poster-sized prints.
Fast & Accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection.
Line up the shot you want in Live View with virtually no wait for the EOS Rebel SL2 camera to focus thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF which helps deliver the world’s fastest autofocusing speed at 0.03 sec.^ Equipped with phase-detection, it can quickly and accurately determine how far away a subject is and where the lens should focus, and offers fast, smooth and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if they are in motion, for both photos and videos. Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure your results are sharp, keeps the time it takes to lock focus onto your subject to a minimum and smoothly maintains focus where you want it.
Vari-angle Touch Screen, 3.0-inch LCD.
The EOS Rebel SL2 camera features a Vari-angle Touch Screen LCD that can be ideal for composing and reviewing your photos. Tap the screen during Live View while taking photos or videos and thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the EOS Rebel SL2 will quickly lock focus to that location in the image. Touch gestures can be used for zooming in or swiping through images after you’ve taken them, and menu and quick control settings can be accessed quickly and easily. In addition, the Vari-angle Touch Screen LCD lets users utilize Selfie Mode with a touch of a button so you can capture high-quality selfie shots with ease.
Built-in Wi-Fi®*, NFC** and Bluetooth®*** Technology.
Built-in Wi-Fi®* CapabilityThe EOS Rebel SL2 camera is designed to make connecting to Wi-Fi®* fast and easy. It can exchange data with other Wi-Fi® compatible Canon cameras, and transfer files directly to a compatible smart device using the Camera Connect app. Just press the Wi-Fi® button and the camera will connect to Wi-Fi® allowing you to share and upload directly to various web services like CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#, Facebook® and YouTube® as well as print directly to compatible wireless Canon printers.
Built-in NFC** CapabilityWith its built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability**, the EOS Rebel SL2 camera connects directly to compatible Android devices as well as Canon’s Connect Station CS100 device by simply touching the NFC icon located on the camera to the device.
Built-in Bluetooth®*** CapabilityBluetooth®*** pairing helps you connect the camera to compatible smart devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app*. The Bluetooth® capability uses a low-energy connection that can be set to connect automatically upon discovery of the two devices and helps preserve battery life while maintaining a wireless connection. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi® connection to use your phone as a viewfinder, as well as check and download previously captured photos and videos. In addition, Bluetooth® lets you connect to the optional Wireless Remote Control BR-E1 for remote shooting as well as pick up GPS shooting location data from the user’s compatible smartphone.
Full HD 60p & External Microphone Input.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera supports Full HD quality movies at 60p and can produce incredibly smooth moving images for playback, or for sharing videos on social media. Vloggers will appreciate the ease with which it can record quality audio that’s immediately ready for uploading. For even more sophisticated sound recording, the EOS Rebel SL2 has an external microphone input to complement its internal microphone.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100–25600.
The DIGIC 7 Image Processor powers the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera to produce high image quality and fast operation, even in in low light. When using high ISO settings, the image processing helps keep results sharp and detailed in virtually any lighting situation. Powerful all around, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and lifelike with minimal noise or grain.
Optical Viewfinder with a 9-point AF System.
Especially useful when shooting in bright light, the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera incorporates a fully featured optical viewfinder with a wide-area, 9-point AF system designed to achieve sharp focus in an instant. This sophisticated AF system makes it easy to capture the action, no matter where the subject moves. 63-zone evaluative metering helps the EOS Rebel SL2 achieve optimal exposure with a diverse array of subjects and lighting conditions.
With its Feature Assistant function, the EOS Rebel SL2 camera helps users take advantage of its advanced features and create impressive photos with ease. By explaining and illustrating the camera’s shooting modes and their effects with sample photos of each mode, Feature Assistant encourages experimentation and provides guidance for creating amazing photographs.
Small & Lightweight Body.
The smallest and lightest EOS DSLR camera to feature both an APS-C sensor and a Vari-angle LCD, the EOS Rebel SL2 is easy to bring with you. With improvements in design and construction, the EOS Rebel SL2 is portable and lightweight with no compromise in performance. Its compact construction is accompanied by excellent usability, including a rounded grip that can sit comfortably in your hand. Conveniently sized for everyday use, the EOS Rebel SL2 means less missed opportunities and more memories preserved and shared in high image quality.
