What customers say about "Key Specs"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • Still adjusting to ASP-C sensor and liking it so far.Granted, this is an entry level camera, but you do get a lot of bang for the buck.
  • Shoot RAW and be amazed at the dynamic range of this sensor!
  • APSC sensor produces tack-sharp photos
  • Works great, I bought a lens for portrait and I love it. I still have a lot to learn
  • It was great for what it was bought for, wish I would of gotten another lens to shoot further. Love the blue tooth feature!
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • Nothing bad at all to say about this camera, the only thing that is missing is a full frame sensor.
  • Great camera, has same sensor but also the newer processor than more expensive options, takes great photos and video, low light suffers slightly but due to kit lens I assume.
  • The T7i features 45 all cross type sensors and shoots up to 6 frames per second in photo mode perfect for shooting your childs weekend soccer match.
  • Purchased T7 after reviewing specs on more expensive canons. The 45 focal points allows for a very clear and sharp picture. I am very satisfied with picture quality and ease of use.
  • The STM lens is very smooth and quite when using auto focus with video.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • In fact it's one of the world's smallest DSLR's which is something you really feel once you pick it up
  • It's weight and it's size make for a great portable camera that you'll find yourself always wanting to carry about. It's ultra light.
  • The technology crammed into this small size DSLR is amazing.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • The next advantage is something I already touched on earlier. The size and bulk. These prosumer line cameras are typically much smaller and lighter than their pro-grade cousins.
  • The camera is fairly light weight for its size too. But I had to get a bigger camera bag, of course.
  • I enjoy this camera alot. Great for videos and photos with a nice selection lenses. But for the price it's pretty hefty . Especially with the alternative cameras that have 4k or lighter weight.
  • The picture clarity, battery life, handling, weight of the camera, features are all great!

What customers say about "Imaging"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • Great image quality of that in a bigger and “advanced” canon DSLR
  • The camera is classic Rebel all the way, feels perfect in the hand (try it out at a store for yourself first) and performs like a pro camera in image quality.
  • The image processor is way more powerful,the Digic 7. Don't use auto ISO ,because it wants to use ISO 100. The sensor can give great pictures at hi ISO.
  • It has guided settings, so you don't have to remembers the ISO and shutter speed, ect for every shot.
  • I found myself having no problems catching my subjects in focus on most occassions, even on some relatively low light shots.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • This was purchased for our marketing department. Great features at this price point. Great images right out of the camera.
  • This is by far the best camera I've ever used very user friendly and the images are stunning.
  • Awesome camera. Takes beautiful pictures. You definitely need the flash attachment. Camera doesn't zoom in to focus at night.
  • Very good quality and some improve previous version T6i lower ISO and most of them the same but new CPU is faster
  • The 45 focal points allows for a very clear and sharp picture.

What customers say about "Display"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • Easy to use camera, swivel screen is a big asset to the camera!
  • Bought for my inspiring young daughter. Small in size for a DSLR, easy to use and great features... The touch screen even explains settings.
  • Fold out screen to take selfies. Great value also.
  • The touch screen was easy to use. I went on line for a tutorial on how to use it and was great.
  • And that's here with it's brand new articulating screen. I'm not going to lie, but when I heard rumors that the SL2 was going to have an articulating screen I got pretty excited and to see it come through I'm very happy.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • The screen and photo quality are both high end (like professional level stuff).
  • Very Easy to use. I never had a personal camera before. It has automatic mode. Easy to use because it's touch screen
  • The camera is easy to use, the flip screen is also a plus. I would defiantly recommend this camera for beginner and intermediate.
  • The touch screen LCD makes the use of the camera even easier!!!
  • I'm also really enjoying the moveable LCD screen. I can adjust it to any position I need it, and I can flip it 180 degrees to show others the photos I had taken. Naturally, when you flip the screen, the photo will flip too.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • Love that it hooks to WiFi. Very easy to share pictures with family and friends.
  • Another nice inclusion on the Canon SL2 is it's inclusion of wifi & nfc. Essenitally this allows you to quickly pair it up to your smart phone to transfer photos wirelessly without having to connect it to a computer.
  • This thing is so solid. I love the WIFI and HDMI OUT options.
  • Our family isn't avid photographers so we probably don't use 2/3rds of its functionality but it takes great pictures, super quick, and the wifi connection to your phone is a nice feature.
  • Love it especially the price, the WiFi is great Bluetooth not so great it won't connect but that's ok with me.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • This model has the wifi/bluetooth connectivity to transfer pictures to your phone, with the Canon Camera Connect app for smartphones.
  • Love the wireless connection to cell phone, can operate the camera and download/upload images on the spot.
  • The WiFi/bluetooth feature is very convenient! I am able to transfer photos to my phone for immediate sharing.
  • The built-in WiFi will allow quick transfer to mobile devices with the Canon app only.
  • It is difficult to get the camera to connect to anything. The process seems like it's syncing for the fist time, every time you try.
  • Bluetooth is only for camera control, and pictures cannot be transferred via bluetooth.

What customers say about "Power"
Canon EOS Rebel SL2 Camera with EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens, White
  • I purchased this camera, and fell in love with it right away. It was easy to set up and charge.
  • The battery seems to last a long time. I carry an extra and it is super easy to change on the go!
  • The one thing that saddens me is not being able to put a battery grip on it
  • Now if I was to point out a weakness on the SL2 it would probably be it's battery life.
  • For stills the SL2 was fine, but it did chew through battery pretty quickly when shooting video, so I'd advise in picking up another battery from places like Amazon or eBay.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • I was able to use all of my lenses from my previous Rebel. But not the batteries or the battery grip. But that's not a huge deal, as it was time to replace those as well.
  • Camera is amazing life long battery. Good product.
  • The picture clarity, battery life, handling, weight of the camera, features are all great!
  • Very, very disappointed that there is no battery grip for this camera.
