But dedicated digital SLR camera is often bulky. Good news for folks who seeking for ultra-portable, compact size D-SLR camera with no compromise on image quality! The well-known digital imaging giant, Canon has officially announced the launch of Canon Rebel SL1 (also known as Canon EOS 100D in other regions), which the company claims as the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR camera to date. According to Canon, this new baby is noticeably smaller and lighter (about one-quarter smaller and lighter) while compared to the EOS Rebel T4i DSLR (also known as Canon EOS 650D).
