Canon has launched the EOS Rebel SL3, the latest in this line of compact DLSRs. This model is capable of 4K reconding, a first for the EOS Rebel series. It does so with its 24.1 megapixel (MP) APS-C sensor, which is compatible with EF and EF-S lenses. The EOS Rebel is capable of various autofocus settings, and has a completely adjustable LCD touchscreen.

Canon has released its new EOS Rebel SL3, a new compact DLSR that is 4K-recording enabled and has a LCD touchscreen to record and refine the footage it captures. The EOS Rebel SL3 also integrates the DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which is also found in the EOS R full-frame mirrorless and EOS M50 cameras.

At a weight of just 15.84 ounces, the SL3 brings the 'compact' in 'compact DLSR camera'. It also boosts 4K reconding with a 24.1MP APS-C sensor. This module also allows for multiple types of autofocus (AF), including Spot AF, Dual Pixel CMOS AF3 and Eye Detection AF, as well as a 9-point AF system in the viewfinder. Therefore, good portrait shots, as well as other specific styles, shouldn't be a problem with this camera.

The EOS Rebel SL3 also has a 3-inch LCD touchscreen, which swings out to the side of the camera's main body and can also be swivelled around through 360 degrees. It can also send its photos to a compatible phone using Canon's Auto Image Transfer via Wi-Fi. The SL3 is compatible with EF and EF-S lenses: however, if you have to take one off during shooting, its Digital Lens Optimizer function corrects for it without the need for a PC.

The Canon EOS Rebel SL3 will be available by the end of April 2019. It will come in white or black color options, and will cost US$599.99 as a standalone camera. However, it will also be bundled with the EF-S 18-55 f/4-5.6 IS STM lens for a total price of $749.99.
