Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Shooting Experience

<lead image> The EOS Rebel SL2 (known as the EOS 200D outside of North America) is Canon's second-generation ultra-compact digital SLR. The SL2 is largely packed with Canon's latest tech, including Dual Pixel AF, a DIGIC 7 processor, Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth, and a new user interface for beginners.

While its small size may lead one to believe that it's an entry-level model, similar to Nikon's D3400, the SL2 actually sits above the bottom-end Rebel T6 (EOS 1300D), which costs $150 less.

The SL2's main competitor is the aforementioned Nikon D3400, which is just a tad larger and heavier. The SL2s' other peers are all mirrorless and include (in our opinion) the Canon EOS M5, Panasonic DMC-GX85 and the Sony a6000 which, after 3+ years on the market, is still competitive.

Key Features

24. 2MP APS-C CMOS sensor

Dual Pixel autofocus (for live view and video)

9-point autofocus (through the viewfinder)

DIGIC 7 processor

3" fully articulating touchscreen LCD

5 fps burst shooting

1080/60p video

External mic input

Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth

Available 'Feature Assistant' user interface

Just about everything in that list is Canon's latest and greatest, and the external microphone input is a nice extra. The one feature that's not new is the 9-point autofocus system that you'll use when shooting through the viewfinder – it's identical to what's found the original SL1, which is over four years old. You'll get a much better focusing experience by shooting in live view, which uses Canon's excellent Dual Pixel AF technology.

Now let's take a look at how the specs compare between the the SL2 and the peers mentioned a few paragraphs earlier.

Strictly comparing the SL2 and D3400 you'll see that they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. While there are 'little things' like the type of LCD, viewfinder size and wireless functionality, live view autofocus is the main differentiator. It's simply no contest there, with the SL2's AF system blowing away the D3400 in live view and movie mode.

With the exception of the Sony a6000, the SL2 is close in weight, and not far of in size, to the three mirrorless cameras in the group. All three of the mirrorless cameras have an additional control dial, making exposure adjustment quick, and their EVFs are larger than the optical viewfinders on both dSLRs. None of the mirrorless models can compare to the DSLRs in terms of battery life, but only when you're using the latter with their optical viewfinder.

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 sample gallery

Photo by Barney Britton The Canon EOS Rebel SL2's diminutive size makes it very easy to carry around, despite some impressive tech under its skin. With the same sensor and processor as the more expensive Rebel T7i and EOS 77D, we've had high hopes that this small camera would put out big image quality for its price point, and we weren't disappointed. dpreview.com »
