And here it is the smallest DSLR ever made! It is the new Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1. Price specs and preorders are up at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto. So is that the right weapon for Canon to battle against the mirrorless system cameras?
Dpreview posted that size comparison between the previous Rebel T4i vs the new SL1 and the Canon own EOS-M mirrorless camera. The size reduction on the width has been noticeable but the camera is still almost as thick as the T41 making it rather bully compared to the EOS-M. And I doubt you can get any smaller than this as the limit is represented by the flange distance between mount and sensor. I don’t know what to think about a camera like the SL1. It is almost too small for a DSLR (can’t hold it well while looking into the viewfinder) and too big to fit in your pocket. What’s your opinion?
