http://www.dpreview.com/previews/can...100d-rebel-sl1New Canon SL1 aka 100D: a new smaller Digital Rebel with Optical Viewfinder
Canon has decided to put on the skinny jeans on their new Canon Digital Rebel SL1 aka 100D. As hinted repeatedly during earlier interviews months/years ago, Canon is attempting to counter the popularity of the more compact mirrorless cameras with a more compact DSLR.
The SL1 will feature an 18mp APS-C sensor with DiGiC 5 and ISO 100 to 12800 (expandable to 25600). Burst mode is up to 4fps. Video options include 1080p (thank you CMOS sensors).
It will have a 3-inch fixed touch-screen on the back with around 1 million dots and an optical viewfinder. It has a 9-point AF system that includes a high precision dual cross f2.8 center point. Focusing options include the new Hybrid CMOS AF II, a combo of high-speed phase-detection AF and high-precision contrast AF.
The battery used is the LP-E12.
