Canon has launched the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 / EOS 250D camera line to shoot 4K videos. With the same appearance as the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 (200D / Kiss X9) and features similar to the Canon M50 mirrorless camera, the new Canon EOS Rebel SL3 camera is still considered as DSLR camera with the most compact flip screen on the market today.
Compared to EOS SL2, Canon EOS Rebel SL3 version remains the same shape, tilting touch screen, 3.0-inch flip display with 1.04 million pixels, ISO 100-25600 (expand up to 51200), APS-C 24MP sensor, 9-point phase autofocus system, 1 / 4000s shutter speed to 30s, 5fps continuous shooting … However, Canon has equipped some new features on this EOS SL3 camera as used. DIGIC 8 processor, eye focus support when using live view mode, supports 4K 24MP video recording, Time-Lapse 4K recording, longer battery shooting (1070 shots / 1 charge compared to 650 shots / 1 charge of SL2)
There are two drawbacks to this new Canon Rebel EOS SL3 camera: when shooting videos, it automatically cropped at 2.64x (like the Canon M50 mirrorless camera) compared to full-frame and system sensors. Dual Pixel system doesn’t work.
For the first time on Canon DSLR cameras, it is set to Smooth Skin to display skin tones that users can check and change constantly under conditions when using Live View such as white balance, brightness in real time. The upper left Wifi function button on the SL2 camera is no longer designed for this new SL3 camera.
