What does it take to construct a lens and camera combination capable of an astounding amount of sharpness, clarity, and even photo versatility? Well, start with a lightweight and compact Canon EOS Rebel SL1 18MP digital SLR camera and add an 18-55mm STM lens, and you’ll have it – one of the best cameras for traveling. Specifically, you’ll have the CANON EOS REBEL SL1 W/18-55 STM – BLACK.

Product Highlights

  • Quality, smart viewfinding and scene recognition means that you don’t have to be an expert to use the full range of effects and optimization that this Canon Rebel SL1 has to offer.
  • Video is also a concern to any discerning buyer. Does the Canon SL1 stack up? Try Full HD 1080p at 30 and 24 fps, with a built-in mono microphone that allows for manual audio level adjustment.
  • Want stable shots? The Canon Optical Image Stabilization will save the day, offering you an astounding compensation against the blur to which so many other cameras are susceptible.

Perfect at low light, family photos, portraits, action, travel, video and more, this is the camera-lens combination you’ve been waiting for.

Learn about the CANON EOS REBEL SL1 W/18-55 STM - BLACK

What happens when you pair a versatile, lightweight camera with a lens capable of taking shots of standard and wide-angle focal lengths? You essentially equip yourself with a mobile photography studio of your very own. And it means that you’re at Adorama, looking at the CANON REBEL SL1 W/18-55 STM – BLACK option. Good choice. Here, you’ll find an entire list of features and sophisticated technical specs, all of which go into building a unique DSLR camera that offers you everything you need to go from zero to sixty in your photography hobby—or even your photography career.

Product Highlights

  • Image processing with power. Image processing and sensing is key to any DSLR camera, and the Canon SL1 is no different. The 18MP CMOS censor and DIGIC 5 image processor give your camera the sophistication and speed to handle a range of subjects in a range of light settings, allowing you to shoot with both natural and indoor light while still producing beautiful, high-quality photography each and every time.
  • Video quality here is just as important as photography quality, and the full HD 1080p at both 30 and 24 fps ensure that you’ll get all the quality you need with the Canon SL1. But there’s more to making quality video—you also need continuous autofocus, as the Movie Servo helps provide here. While you focus on a moving subject, the camera itself will be able to adjust on the fly, ensuring that none of that high-quality HD 1080p goes to waste.
  • Let’s talk viewfinding. A 3.0” Clear View II touchscreen LCD ensures that you’ll be able to use a 1,040k-dot resolution for the most possible amount of accuracy. Quality viewfinding, of course, has become standard in the industry—which is why the Canon SL1’s particular brand of accuracy and smudge-resistant coating goes above and beyond the normal calls of duty. That’s viewfinding you can rely on to continue framing well-crafted shots. And if you want just a little more, remember that an optical viewfinder with 0.87x magnification is available to ensure that your eye-level composition is stable.
  • Of course, a photographer is only as good as the camera they carry. But what about as smart? The Scene Intelligent Auto Mode handles a lot of the manual labor for you, ensuring that it makes the optical camera adjustments based on the scene that’s placed before it. That means that advanced imaging filters and other effects will be finely-tuned in order to create the best photography possible, every time.
  • Lens compatibility is always important when working with a camera this versatile. If you ever want to switch out the attached lens, you’ll have the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses to choose from.

Want a better combination of camera and lens here at Adorama? You’ll have to search far and long to find it—and, of course, the CANON EOS REBEL SL1 W/18-55 STM – BLACK Scene Intelligent Auto Mode could help. Maybe it’s better to end your search here.

From the Manufacturer
The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens from Canon is a lightweight APS-C format digital SLR camera with an 18MP CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5 image processor. It is combined with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for an effective range of wide-angle to standard focal length shooting options.

The EOS SL1 provides sharp details, accurate colors and low-noise imaging in compact form factor with easy to use interface. A 9-point autofocus system provides fast focusing when shooting with the viewfinder and Hybrid CMOS AF II increases autofocus speed and accuracy when shooting in Live View. The Rebel SL1 can continuously shoot up to 4 fps and its wide ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) allows for confident shooting in bright and low light situations.

A 3.0" Clear View II touchscreen LCD with 1,040k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing. Its intuitive touchscreen operation includes multi-touch operation with direct access to functions for settings changes and Touch Autofocus. Smudge-resistant coating keeps the monitor clear, even in bright sunlight. An optical viewfinder with 0.87x magnification is also available for stable eye-level composition.

Full HD 1080p at 30 fps and 24 fps is supported with Movie Servo for continuous autofocus during shooting. Manual exposure is provided in video mode and 60 fps is possible when shooting at 720p HD. A built-in mono microphone with manual audio level adjustment is provided and Video Snapshot with editing is supported.

Scene Intelligent Auto Mode automatically makes the optimal camera adjustments based on scene recognition and improved scene detection is particularly helpful when shooting night scenes. Advanced imaging features such as Effect Shot mode and background Simulation are available and Creative Filters add expressive touches to your images and can even be viewed in real time during Live View shooting. Special Scene Modes including Kids, Food and Candlelight let you set the type of shot you want and have the camera do the rest.

The EOS Rebel SL1 is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses. It is paired here with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens which offers wide-angle to standard length shooting capability specifically designed for APS-C cameras. It is equivalent to a 28.8-88mm focal length in the 35mm format and its minimum focus distance is 9.8". This lens features Canon's Optical Image Stabilization system, providing 4-stops of compensation against the blur caused by slow shutter speeds when shooting hand-held in low light or at longer focal lengths. An inner focusing system provides fast autofocus and with a Stepping Motor (STM) and six group zoom system it supports the Rebel SL1's Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus during video recording. Manual focus override is possible. A high precision aspherical lens reduces chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for sharp imaging and Canon lens coatings provide accurate color balance and minimal ghosting and flare.

I'm reviewing the SL1 as a long-time Canon DSLR user and one that has been searching for a good, small, speedy backup camera for casual use. I'll leave the highly technical issues such as ISO performance to others. I've had a series of smaller cameras like the Canon G11. All had one fault that troubled me. They could not shoot quickly when a grand child photo op materialized. Setting up for a particular shooting situation was far too time consuming, but more importantly, there was too much delay once the shutter was depressed, especially when shooting flash with red-eye protection turned on. The SL1 is also a bit slow in that situation but with red-eye off, even flash photos occur quickly. Shots using available light are near instantaneous as is typical of Canon DSLRS and essential for shooting pets and grand kids. The SL1 does not sacrifice this advantage of DSLRs. Another issue I have with small cameras is a secure and comfortable grip. With the SL1 I had some fear that my right hand fingers would bottom uncomfortably against the front of the body (I'm tall with longish fingers). Not to worry, my fingers naturally slope downward toward the front of the body allowing good contact with the part of the grip that extends forward. The thumb rest on the back of the body is excellent. As good or better than any Canon DSLR I've had before (a total of seven). The grip is great in spite of the small body and allows secure one-handed shooting. And, of course, the light weight means many shots before fatigue sets in. As with any small body camera, physics prevents an equally compact lens so the 18-55 kit lens seems large on the SL1. But, when using the standard two-handed grip with the left hand underneath and the right hand up the right side, one needs the zoom and focus rings to be forward a bit and the 18-55 lens size is just right for that. Any shorter and it would be difficult to control. While the body is very small, seemingly half the size of a 5D or 50D or 60D or 7D, the controls are all more accessible than those on any of the compact cameras. Only a few that have several knobs or wheels on the top come close. I think the touch screen and the excellent canon Q screen make this body as controllable as any Canon DSLR. I thought smudges from use of the touch screen would be a problem but that has not been the case. The LCD is very bright. I've only had to set it brighter than the second notch for use in bright sunlight. If you are a Canon shooter now, you will be up to speed on this camera in an hour or two without ever cracking the manual (mine is still sealed). If you are new to DSLRs, the SL1 is probably as good a place to start as any. Suffice it to say, feature-wise, the SL1 has just about everything you can get in the Rebel line except the weight and size. For me it's the perfect second camera for backup, to carry on long hikes, for use at the grand kids birthday parties and soccer matches, and for casual walk-around duty. I'll rarely be without it. My full frame DSLR will now be reserved for serious landscape and portrait shooting.

Very capable Camera


from Raleigh, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this camera to have a lighter option for hiking and vacation over my 60D. Quality and ease of use were on par with the 60D from my experience. I won't go into a technical comparison as those reviews are well chronicled here and helped me to make my purchase decision. I coupled the SL1 with the new Tamron 16:300 and minimized the lens swapping exercise routine that was part of most vacations and outings. Performed well on a recent trip to Yosemite and the Oregon Coast. For the cost, weight and quality of photo's I would definitely recommend this camera.


Great Camera for this price !!!


from Sunnyvale, CA  -  Casual Photographer

This is my first DSLR and I'm already super excited about it. I bought this a month ago and I've already taken some good pictures out of this camera. This is very compact and also has a touchscreen LCD (though I don't use the touchscreen much) for viewing the images. There are several features in the manual mode as well for amateurs like me. I'm slowly trying them out. Even though it's small, when you attach the lens it looks bigger, but still smaller than other cameras. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because the LCD screen is not flip-out, which Canon did away with (maybe to reduce the size of the camera). But this is really useful when you're shooting from a raised angle.


Fabulous camera for amateurs on the go


from Clarkston, MI  -  Pro Photographer

I'm a pro photographer, but I bought the SL1 for my wife. She LOVES it. She had a Canon SX40, but wanted to take her photos to the next level. She loves the touch screen LCD and the photos are fabulous. She is still in the "Auto+" stage, but she is learning to shoot manually with it.


My favorite travel camera


from Torrance, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I used my SL-1 on three trips and liked it so much I bought a second body so I don't have to changes lenses on my next trip.


awesome camera


from Rocky Hill, Ct.  -  Photo Enthusiast

My SL-1 Takes photo's that are of very high quality.It rivals my 7D and is a lot easier to carry when I am in the field birding. Adorama has been exceptional in advertizing their products. Adorama makes it easy to purchase what you want.I highly recommend Adorama!


Great Little SLR


from Cypress, Texas  -  Photo Enthusiast

Pros: Great picture settings, HD video is excellent, light weight, love the touch screen, it's like an iphone in your camera. Love the Handheld night scene setting Con: Video mic volume is low and can't be adjusted


Better, faster, lighter than my T1i


from San Francisco, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought the EOS Rebel SL1 (100D in the rest of the world) as a replacement body for my T1i, which I will now resell. The weight difference was the initial motivation for making the change, but the SL1 has the newer DIGIC 5 processor and a slightly more coherent user interface. I've only had the camera for a few days, so I haven't yet explored all of its features. I tried it out yesterday at a baseball game using a Tamron 18-200 zoom lens, and was very satisfied with my ability to capture the action using the continuous shooting feature. The new body and the old lens makes a great combination for most of my photo needs, and I expect that the new body will soon gather many frequent flyer miles with me.


Great Camera in a Small Body


from Florida  -  Semi-pro Photographer

If you Canon shooter looking at mirrorless cameras for those times you want to carry a smaller, lighter camera then consider this the SL1 for the following reasons: 1. Coupled with Canons 40 mm lens, you have a unit which is less than 4-1/2" wide, 4" high and 4" deep and weighs 20.4 ounces. 2. Handles all EF lenses 3. View finder as well as live view 4. Controls in familiar locations plus adding touchscreen controls 5. Can shoot RAW

Don't let the small size fool you...


from white oak, tx  -  Pro Photographer

Bought to have with me at all times because of size and capabilities. Great little tool. Never be caught without a camera again. Sometimes its hard to lug around the larger cameras and lenses, but this one being so compact makes it nice to be ready for anything.


Had high hopes


from Woodinville, WA  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this camera, along with the Canon 40mm f/2.8 Pancake lens, for my wife's birthday. It seemed like a great little package, however we could not get a sharp image, regardless of the settings. I tried the lens on one of my Canon 5D Mark II's and it was fine, so it had to be the camera. Returned it for refund.
