Sensor technology

APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor (EOS 100D)

Designed and manufactured by Canon to work in combination with its own DIGIC image processors, Canon’s CMOS technology integrates advanced noise reduction circuitry at each pixel site, delivering virtually noise-free images. In comparison with CCD technology, the lower power consumption characteristics of Canon’s CMOS sensors also contribute to longer battery life.

The EOS 100D features a new Hybrid CMOS AF II Sensor that uses a combination of phase detection pixels located on the sensor, along with contrast AF to acquire swift and accurate focus. Compared to Hybrid CMOS AF, the new Hybrid AF II Sensor has phase detection pixels over a larger proportion of the sensor’s area – approximately 80% of the height and width. As a result, the EOS 100D is able to quickly achieve focus across the entire scene – both in stills and Full HD movies.

SL1 Press Info (US)

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 21, 2013 – Continuing the quest to deliver superb product innovations, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the world's smallest and lightest DSLR* camera: the EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera. It features a newly developed 18.0-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and high-performance DIGIC 5 Image Processor for exceptional image quality and speed. With its combination of lightweight size, ease of use and outstanding image quality, the EOS Rebel SL1 is perfect for users looking for the ideal camera to bring sightseeing on vacation or to capture the everyday.

"The EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera represents a new era in DSLR versatility: ultra-portable, full-featured DSLR cameras," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. "The EOS Rebel SL1 combines the high speed, high image quality and expanded shooting range of a DSLR camera, with the easy and fun usability of a point-and-shoot camera."

Advanced Image Quality in a Compact Body

As the world's smallest and lightest DSLR, the new camera body is 4.6" (w) x 3.57" (h) x 2.74" (d), and weighs only 14.36 oz.** In comparison, the EOS Rebel SL1 is approximately 25 percent smaller and 28 percent lighter than the EOS Rebel T4i digital camera.

comparison of camera sizes

The EOS Rebel SL1 features an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that performs exceptionally well in both bright and dimly lit shooting environments with an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to H: 25600) for photos and ISO-6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for video. Canon's DIGIC 5 Image Processor technology allows for exceptional image quality and shooting speed up to four frames per second (fps).

The camera includes a new nine-point center cross-type autofocus (AF) system to help achieve fast, sharp focus. The new AF system also includes a new Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor, which provides a wider focus area when shooting photos or video in Live View mode, and a continuous AF speed that's increased from previous EOS models.

To help capture video with ease, the EOS Rebel SL1 features Canon's Movie Servo AF, which provides continuous AF tracking of moving subjects. When shooting video with one of Canon's new STM lenses, such as the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM (available in the standard lens kit), Movie Servo AF takes advantage of the lens' stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF. The camera is capable of Full HD shooting in a number of recording sizes and frame rates, and enables easy manual control of exposure, focus and Live View features. The combination of Canon's new Hybrid CMOS AF system II and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is ideal for shooting video helping to ensure only the sounds of the scene are recorded.

Allowing for clear and easy viewing even in bright environments, the Touch Screen three inch Clear View LCD monitor II provides a rich and expansive display as well as providing intuitive touch panel operation. Two finger touch gestures (multi-touch) can be easily used for zooming or changing images, accessing menu and quick control settings, and activating focus point and shutter release while shooting.

rebel sl1 - eos100dCreativity at your Fingertips

The EOS Rebel SL1 encourages users to explore their creative side with a wide array of features for convenience and simple shooting. The EOS Rebel SL1 is equipped with Scene Intelligent Auto Mode, an advanced function that detects faces, colors, brightness, movement, contrast, distance and other factors and automatically adjusts and selects the exposure method needed. The results are photos with a wide dynamic range, ideal for users without advanced photography knowledge or experience.

Users can also access advanced imaging features like the new Effect Shot mode, which automatically creates two different shots, one with a selected creative filter and one without. In addition, Creative Filters and Background Blur Simulation can now be displayed in real time during Live View shooting. Editing photos is also a snap with the Rebel SL1's in-camera editing and cropping functionality. This feature allows users to view and crop the image using the camera's LCD touch screen and save the edited version as a separate file.

For those who would like to take beautiful photos with ease, the EOS Rebel SL1 offers a variety of scene modes to explore. New special scene modes include Kids, Food and Candlelight, giving users advanced presets to help ensure the best possible photos even under difficult shooting conditions.

Pricing and Availability

The new EOS Rebel SL1 Digital SLR Camera is scheduled to be available in April for an estimated retail price of $649.99 for the body alone or $799.99 bundled with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens.

With the option to manually select and adjust focus points, or simply use full automatic mode, the EOS 700D provides aspiring photographers with an easy way to explore different kinds of image composition as their confidence grows.

The EOS 700D features a new, simplified 360° rotating mode dial to provide easy and swift access to the camera’s various shooting modes. A 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen also makes it easy for users to adjust settings as well as frame, shoot and review from a variety of angles. A new external coating, adopted from Canon’s mid-range EOS models, also provides a more robust and durable finish.

Enhanced creative modes

Both the EOS 700D and EOS 100D feature a range of super easy-to-use shooting modes and creative filters – making it simple for beginners to start with creative pre-sets and then explore their creativity as their confidence grows. Scene Intelligent Auto mode automatically detects the scene being shot and selects best settings so users can simply focus on the image, letting the camera decide the best combination of settings for the scene. Both new models also offer a range of dedicated scene modes, with the
EOS 100D featuring new Kids, Food and Candlelight modes, designed to ensure optimum results with stunning detail in a range of familiar situations.

Canon’s exciting range of Creative Filters, including Fish-eye and Miniature effect, can now be applied before capture thanks to new real-time filter previews – providing the perfect way to pick the most suitable effect for specific moments before you actually take the shot. Photographers can also learn how to adjust their images with enhanced Creative Auto Mode, and using new Extra Effect Shot mode on the EOS 100D, users can even capture two images simultaneously – one with a Creative Filter applied, as well as one standard image.

Explore videography with EOS Movies

Aspiring photographers can add another dimension to capturing their memories, using EOS Movies to shoot their precious moments in glorious Full HD resolution (1920x1080p). Hybrid AF II[iii] always keeps the stars of the movie in focus, with continuous AF constantly tracking subjects during shooting. Additionally, Video Snapshot mode makes it easy to capture and edit short video clips to bring to life an exciting day, such as road trips and weddings.

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM – A standard STM zoom lens, for everyday photos and video

The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is the perfect lens for EOS 700D and EOS 100D users to start their photography adventure. From sweeping landscapes to portraits, the versatile 18-55mm zoom range means users can enjoy the flexibility of getting close to subjects or getting more in the shot. Images are captured with precision detail and clarity thanks to a 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer, which also lets photographers use lower ISO levels and longer shutter speeds. The full time manual focus ring allows users to make precise focus adjustments, while the near-silent STM technology also ensures noise is kept to a minimum whilst focusing – perfect for when capturing movies.
