Canon has announced the SL3, the successor of their lightweight, compact SL2 model. Available in two colours this spring, this camera takes a lot of features from the mirrorless M50 camera and puts them into the DSLR form factor.
The camera is smaller and marginally lighter than the SL2, has a better battery life, and now includes the updated DIGIC 8 processor. With this, the camera is also now capable of 4K/24p and internal 4K timelapse, although with a very heavy crop factor of 2.64x as compared to full-frame. (This means that the wide end of the kit lens, 18mm, is the full frame equivalent of a 47mm lens.)
The camera keeps the same 3” articulating touch screen, mic jack, 24 megapixel resolution, and 9-point AF as the previous model. Dual Pixel AF is built in and covers approximately 88% of the sensor horizontally and 100% vertically, though not available in movie mode. Eye-AF is now available in live-view shooting, however.
The camera is available for preorder kitted with the 18-55mm f4-5.6 lens in black and white configurations at $944.00. Expected ship date is in May.
