Follow all SL1 News on Facebook
Along with the barely updated Canon T5i (700D) Canon announced the Rebel SL1, a slimmed down version of the T4i and now T5i cameras.
It is the internals of the T5i/T4i with a few differences
- 80% coverage of AF in Live View, this is an increase and should make live view focusing better, not necessarily faster, just better.
- 4fps – max of 7 RAW and 28 JPEGs, this is down from 5fps with 10 RAW in the T4i/T5i
- 9 focus points but only the center focus point is cross type.
- Creative filters can be display in real time during live view shooting
- Background blur display in live view ( I too am curious to know more)
- New Scene Modes- Kids, Food and Candlelight (not present in T4i or T5i)
Externally the camera has a few difference
- Mono mic
- Non-articulating LCD screen
- Multi purpose buttons surrounding the multi purpose SET/Q menu – on the T5i and T4i the button surrounding the set menu are all labeled and the Q button is different.
- Camera does retain all other buttons found on the T4i/T5i cameras.
- It is smaller, a good bit smaller, paired with the 40mm STM lens, this will be quite the tiny powerhouse.
