I've been running around with the new Canon Rebel SL1 for the past couple days. I'll have some sample images and a full review later; however, I wanted to take a moment and pass along some first impressions from…
Why Americans have to have a different names for cameras? I can't understand what is the purpose of it.
Ok, I checked. So you are talking about EOS 100D. Well, nice toy I guess. Not for the real photographers. Smallest DSLR? And so what? Still not a pocket camera, but probably can feel well only in hands of a child. It is not a milestone in photography for sure, but I guess Canon figured out it will make money for them. As a photographer I can just regret that they are wasting time and money on such projects instead of perfecting real cameras.
So to summarize I am not gonna buy it from B&H Photo (or any other store) and will not support Photography Bay in creating QUALITY camera test like the one above.
Got to agree with you here on the size, if I wanted a small camera I'd look at micro 4/3 - at least the good range of lenses are in physical proportion too. Can't imagine trying to balance a big lens on this... There are times even my 5D doesn't quite balance.
Re: - The model names, given so many of us these days are international/internet readers a different naming convention by region is just plain annoying.
I do like that B&H have a good product range at competitive pricing (even for overseas purchase) and wouldn't want or expect that to change on my bias.
Can you imagine this toy with 300/2.8? Lol. Lens would probably broke the mount off the camera body and fall to the ground. But of course people who buy this camera won't get such lens.
I agree that in some situations carrying serious DSLR even with one lens is a pain. For example bike trips. You don't want to cycle with heavy expensive camera and set of lenses. You probably won't use them anyway. So you actually don't need an interchangeable lens camera. I got for my bike trips G1X and am pretty happy with this solution. Just trying to say G1X is small enough and provides much better picture quality than micro 4/3, which I also considered some time ago.
Yeah, I am a client of B&H Photo too. I just said I will not buy this camera. Not from them, not from anyone. I am a bit too serious about photography.
