Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 and writes;
“With a retail price of £699 when bundled with the new 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the Canon EOS 100D is only £50 less than the equivalent EOS 700D kit which benefits from a host of additionally features, including a better specified AF and vari-angle tilt screen.”
Imaging-resource reviews the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 and writes;
“Overall first impression. By creating such a small and light yet highly usable DSLR with the EOS Rebel SL1, Canon has immediately changed the DSLR landscape. For those out there who might have been intrigued by small, mirrorless CSCs, the Canon Rebel SL1 offers a seemingly strong alternative, but with the speed and promising image quality of a DSLR.”
Cameralabs reviews the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 and writes;
“As for viewfinders, there’s pros and cons to optical and electronic systems. Optical viewfinders undoubtedly work better in very low light, avoiding the noise and lag of electronic models. With nothing but the speed of light to slow them down, they’re also better for following action.”

Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 User Reviews
The most compact Rebel
“This sensor is functionally identical to those in the T2i/T3i/T4i/T5i/60D/7D save for the pixels devoted to phase-detect. Noise and dynamic range are the same in raw. Expect acceptable results up to ISO 3200. Nikon’s D5100 is slightly better, Sony’s A65 slightly worse. It’s about two solid stops better than a typical point-and-shoot.” – By D. Alexander
Fantastic DSLR in the palm of your hand
“Thanks to Canon I have the SL1 and so far am extremely pleased with the size, functionality and the pictures are excellent. I am using the 40mm F2.8 pancake STM lens and carry a Tamron 18-270 separately. IMHO a great camera for travelers who want a DSLR!” – By MCf
The perfect camera?
“Image comparison. The images coming out of this Canon SL1 are lovely. I compared directly with my full frame Nikon D600 and Fujifilm XE-1 indoors on a colorful bookcase, ISO 1600 in room light and ISO 200 with flash. Results; unless you are a fanatical pixel peeper, they are all quite comparable. Perhaps the SL1 had slightly more shadow noise at 1600 but was better on greens, etc.” – By Doctor.Generosity
