Canon EOS 100D is World’s Smallest and Lightest DSLR Camera

Canon recently announced a new DSLR camera and it has the distinction of being the world’s smallest and lightest full-featured DSLR camera.  The Canon EOS 100D is not like the EOS M mirrorless which compromises features of a DSLR just to get a compact body.  The Canon EOS 100D, called the Rebel SL1 in the US and other parts of the world, is a full DSLR that uses an APS-C sensor and is compatible with EOS lenses.  I personally find mirrorless cameras limited compared to DSLRs yet they are as expensive or even more expensive sometimes.  The Canon EOS 100D is therefore good news for people like me who are looking for a very lightweight and very portable DSLR.

The Canon EOS 100D has a body that measures 4.6″ (w) x 3.57″ (h) x 2.74″ (d), and weighs only 14.36 oz.  It is 25 percent smaller than Canon’s smallest DSLR camera and about 28% lighter.  That’s small and light enough for those who travel a lot.


For hardware specs, the Canon EOS 100D features an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor, with an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) for photos and ISO-6400 (expandable to 12800) for video.  The DIGIC 5 Image Processor is said to have shooting speed of up to four frames per second (fps).  The Canon EOS 100D has a nine-point center cross-type autofocus (AF) system and includes a Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor that makes a wider focus area available when shooting photos or video in Live View mode.  For viewing photos or videos, the Canon EOS 100D uses a 3-inch touch screen Clear View LCD display.

The new Canon EOS 100D will become available in April and will carry a $649.99 price tag for body alone, and $799.99 if bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens. is one of the most active tech sites in the Philippines.

  1. Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Camera Review
    Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Camera come with Hybrid CMOS AF II delivers accurate AF tracking during Live View shooting, helping ensure your photos and movies are crisp and clear.  The Rebel SL1 introduces version two of Canon’s Hybrid CMOS AF system, originally seen in the Rebel T4i. While Canon is making no claims about focus speed improvements of its hybrid phase/contrast detect system, the new version covers a significantly greater portion of the live view area (80% of the area). This should make it a significantly more useful option than the version found on the EOS M and T4i.
