Canon EOS Rebel SL2 review

 

With plenty of new features and tech, the SL2 easily outshines its predecessor -- but not much else.

Compact size ; Fast live-view autofocus ; Articulating touchscreen ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ; Easy to use

Nine-point AF system when using viewfinder ; Small viewfinder ; Outclassed by mirrorless rivals

After four years, the Rebel SL2 is a significant improvement over the original. Everything but the AF system (when using the viewfinder) has changed. The inclusion of an articulating monitor, touchscreen, wireless connectivity, and a new sensor with...

Beginner friendly DSLR with superb vari-angle screen. Canon EOS 200D.

World’s lightest DSLR with vari-angle screen ; Fast focusing performance in Live View ; Intuitive layout of buttons and dials ; Guided user interface helps beginners learn the key controls and settings

Basic arrangement of 9 AF points ; Single scroll dial on the top plate

Investing in your first interchangeable-lens camera is a big decision to make. Two of the key things you’ll want to look for are a reliably performing camera that’s well supported by a wide range of lenses and accessories. The Canon EOS 200D delivers...

Canon EOS Rebel SL2

 

The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is the smallest SLR camera in the company's lineup. It boasts a modern 24MP image sensor, but its autofocus system isn't as good as the larger T7i.

Really small and light. 24MP APS-C image sensor. Dual Pixel AF in Live View. Vari-angle touch LCD. Microphone input. Guided user interface. Wi-Fi.

Dated nine-point focus system. Some focus lag in live view. Small Raw shooting buffer. Video limited to 1080p.

The SL2 is a solid option for any entry-level user in search of an SLR, but it's by no means bleeding edge in terms of performance. It's not the absolute best at anything it does, but it does a lot of things well. Image quality is much better than what...

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Shooting Experience

 

The EOS Rebel SL2 (also known as the EOS 200D) is one of Canon's entry-level DSLRs and impressively compact. To recreate what a new photographer who just picked up the SL2 would experience, we put the camera into auto mode and headed to the zoo.

Canon renews its dSLR for tinyish hands in the Rebel SL2

 

It's a little bigger than its predecessor, the SL1, but it includes the most necessary updates.

Canon EOS Rebel SL2

 

The Good. Canon took its most affordable DSLR (the SL1) and stuffed it with a better image sensor and one of the best (video) AutoFocus systems on the market today. At less than $650 for the kit, this budget-friendly DSLR features a guided menu system,...

Canon EOS 200D review

 

Can Canon's smallest ever DSLR take on the mirrorless clan?

Compact size for a DSLR ; Has an optical viewfinder ; Good image quality in most conditions ; Big range of lenses

Still larger than mirrorless rivals ; Only nine AF points

A great first option for beginners who prefer DSLR-style handling and features over those on mirrorless cams

Canon EOS 200D review: The perfect mini DSLR for beginners?

 

If you're looking for an interchangeable lens camera that's not too big then a mirrorless model might be the obvious option. But with a whole raft of

Tilt-angle touchscreen is great to use ; Small scale and lightweight for a DSLR ; High standard of image quality ; Lots of EF lenses to grow into ; Guided UI makes it more accessible for newcomers (with room to grow) ; Great battery life

9-point AF system isn't the best going (especially for continuous autofocus) ; Viewfinder has 95% field-of-view limits ; Live view autofocus not fully accurate ; Video limits to Full HD only

We genuinely weren't expecting Canon to launch a 100D replacement model because of the potential cross-over this has with the company's EOS M mirrorless series. Because, in our view, the 200D is better than any EOS M, has greater lens support and...

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D review

 

Small, light and easy to use

Great Live View AF performance ; Polished touchscreen interface ; Easy to use ; Image quality very good ; User-friendly interface

9-point AF system is somewhat basic ; High price – at least for now ; Plasticky finish ; No 4K video

The compact proportions of the original Rebel SL1 / 100D meant it was truly novel amongst its peers, but the slightly bulkier proportions of the EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D make it feel more like a slightly pared-down Rebel T7i / 800D than anything...

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / 200D Review

 

When you need (want) the smallest camera possible, a camera ready to go everywhere with you, but do not want to give up DSLR features, the SL2 (AKA EOS Kiss X8 in Japan and EOS 200D in Europe/Asia/Oceania) immediately jumps to the forefront of your...
