What we like:

  • Good image quality, nice JPEG colors
  • Compact and light, especially for a DSLR
  • Genuinely useful ‘guide mode’ for beginners
  • Good build quality
  • Comfortable grip, generally good controls
  • Dual Pixel autofocus in live view is great, the viewfinder system is okay
  • Great battery life using the viewfinder
  • Strong wireless connectivity options

What we don’t:

  • Viewfinder may be small for some users
  • Battery life is only ‘okay’ using live view
  • No USB charging
  • Video quality is unimpressive
  • No in-camera Raw processing
  • Good smartphones will convincingly blur backgrounds better than the SL3’s kit lens will allow

Conclusion from DPReview:

The Canon EOS Rebel SL3 is a great option for beginners that are looking to get serious about photography. It’s comfortable to hold, fun to use, and has a useful guide mode to help you learn photography’s basics in real time. The optical viewfinder is small but adds flexibility and image quality is solid. Video quality is sub-par and users may eventually grow out of the simplified controls, but for its intended market, the SL3 is good value for money and will reward you with great photographs.
