I recently had the opportunity to try shooting with a Cannon rebel SL1. I’m use to my Nikon D5100 and although I am a Nikon fan I do have to show huge props for this cannon camera!
At first glance: It has a sleek body and small but capable lens which lens to a lighter total weight then the Nikon, the white body is certainly very modern and the design looks classy. The only thing I found not so easy to deal with is the On/Off switch is not easily accessed by your index finger like it is on the Nikon when shooting.
Test run: Of course I took it for some test shots and was pleased by it’s auto mode. Although the downside is that it had less settings/ scenes then the Nikon D5100 but I would have to say the images might be sharper and more colorful. All in all it was great. Looking forward to testing it on more complex objects and of course with portraits.
