Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Shooting Experience

The EOS Rebel SL2 (known as the EOS 200D outside of North America) is Canon’s second-generation ultra-compact digital SLR. The SL2 is largely packed with Canon’s latest tech, including Dual Pixel AF, a DIGIC 7 processor, Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth, and a new user interface for beginners.

While its small size may lead one to believe that it’s an entry-level model, similar to Nikon’s D3400, the SL2 actually sits above the bottom-end Rebel T6 (EOS 1300D), which costs $150 less.

The SL2’s main competitor is the aforementioned Nikon D3400, which is just a tad larger and heavier. The SL2s’ other peers are all mirrorless and include (in our opinion) the Canon EOS M5, Panasonic DMC-GX85 and the Sony a6000 which, after 3+ years on the market, is still competitive.

Key Features

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Dual Pixel autofocus (for live view and video)
  • 9-point autofocus (through the viewfinder)
  • DIGIC 7 processor
  • 3″ fully articulating touchscreen LCD
  • 5 fps burst shooting
  • 1080/60p video
  • External mic input
  • Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth
  • Available ‘Feature Assistant’ user interface

Just about everything in that list is Canon’s latest and greatest, and the external microphone input is a nice extra. The one feature that’s not new is the 9-point autofocus system that you’ll use when shooting through the viewfinder – it’s identical to what’s found the original SL1, which is over four years old. You’ll get a much better focusing experience by shooting in live view, which uses Canon’s excellent Dual Pixel AF technology.

Now let’s take a look at how the specs compare between the the SL2 and the peers mentioned a few paragraphs earlier.

Did You Order a New Canon or Nikon DSLR? You’ll Have to Wait

By Liz Nord

Shipping for both the new Nikon D5 and Canon 6D Mark II is delayed.

Nikon announced a slate of 100th-anniversary commemorative gear back in April, including a metallic gray version of its flagship D5. Then, in June, Canon unleashed details of its 6D Mark II. Today, both companies have reported that their latest DSLRs will be delayed reaching the hands of eager customers.

Canon released a statement saying that shipment of the Canon 6D Mark II kit with the EF 24-70mm F4L lens—which was intended to ship on August 4—has been delayed until an unspecified date due to an excessive number of orders (which, honestly, has us raising our eyebrows given all the early complaints about the unit from filmmakers). However, if you don’t want to wait for that particular combination, you can currently get your hands on the 6D Mark II body only, or with the 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 and f/4 lenses.

Both Nikon and Canon have warned users that forthcoming DSLRs will be hit by delays: The 100th anniversary edition of the Nikon D5 and the Canon 6D Mark II kit with the EF 24-70mm F4L lens are both going to arrive at your door later than expected.

According to a statement on Nikon’s website, the 100th anniversary edition of Nikon’s D5 has been put back by a couple of weeks from July 28th to ‘early August’ while final adjustments are made. The company promises to inform users of the new release date once it is determined.

More seriously perhaps, Canon has issued a statement letting hopeful shoppers know that demand for the EOS 6D Mark ll kit with the Canon EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens has exceeded expectations, and that orders will take some time to fulfill. The kits were supposed to ship on August 4th, but Canon has not revealed when it will be able to satisfy the initial demand.

The EOS 6D ll is also offered body only and as a kit with the 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, so those desperate to buy the camera do have other options.
