At the time of its launch, the 100D marked the spirits thanks to its very compact dimensions and lightweight for a DSLR. More than four years later, his successor Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D wins an adjustable screen and gain a slight weight. And of course, an integrated Dual Pixel AF system.
The weight increases as well as the dimensions: 122.4 x 92.6 x 69.8 mm and 453 g, against 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4 mm and 407 g for the 100D. Because of the fully articulated LCD screen, and comes with the 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 Image Processor, now only the 1300D and 7D Mark II have a fixed screen.
With a compact and lightweight body, the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera comes with the native sensitivities up to ISO 25600. Video shooting has received a boost with Full HD 1080p recording possible at up to 60fps. There is a 3.0-inch Vari-angle touchscreen LCD display and of course with the optical viewfinder, and 9-point phase-detection autofocus system provides quick and precise focusing in difficult lighting conditions.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 does offer Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology that offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement.
