Canon EOS Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D / EOS Kiss X10) Overview
|I own it||I want it||I had it|
The Canon EOS Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D in most regions) is an ultra-compact digital SLR that features a 24MP APS-C-sized CMOS sensor, DIGIC 8 processor and Dual Pixel autofocus system. The main differences between the SL3 and SL2 is the addition of Eye AF during live view, an even smaller and lighter body, and 4K video. While its Dual Pixel AF system promises very good live view and video performance, the through-the-viewfinder AF system is aging. This camera has a fully articulating 3" touchscreen display with an easy-to-use interface, 1080/60p video capture and a burst rate of up to 5 fps. The SL3 can capture 4K video but with a substantial crop and no Dual Pixel AF. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (with NFC) and Bluetooth.

The Canon EOS Rebel SL3 is a great option for beginners that are looking to get serious about photography. It's comfortable to hold, fun to use, and has a useful guide mode to help you learn photography's basics in real time. The optical viewfinder is small but adds flexibility and image quality is solid. Video quality is sub-par and users may eventually grow out of the simplified controls, but for its intended market, the SL3 is good value for money and will reward you with great photographs.
Good for: Casual family and social photographers, travel photographers and those looking to start learning the basics of photography.
Not so good for: More advanced users that will miss more greater control and customization options, those looking for better video quality and those wanting to shoot fast action.
