Although the camera is set to take on other rivals such as the Nikon D3400 , recent improvements in the mirrorless world does mean that this camera might have to slug it out with other -more advanced systems at its starting price of $549 . The camera therefore aimed at those who want a decent Canon dslr camera for light work and starting out on YouTube/vlogging.

EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera
Stepping up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera for photography can be intimidating. With the introduction of the new EOS Rebel SL2, a powerful, small, and lightweight DSLR camera, Canon hopes to alleviate some of those concerns for first-time DSLR users.
This small yet powerful camera features the world’s fastest AF speed* at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame. When designing the new EOS Rebel SL2 camera, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result was the creation of a convenient new user interface called Feature Assistant. With the EOS Rebel SL2 camera, users will be able to see on the camera’s Vari-angle Touch Screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking camera settings like aperture and exposure compensation can alter the image they are about to capture, thus guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look.
The EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR camera features several other enhancements over its predecessor model,
the EOS Rebel SL1, including:
24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD Touch-Screen,
Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 Technology
Full HD 60p & External Microphone Input
DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-25600
Optical Viewfinder with a 9-point AF System
Small and Lightweight Body
