The Good Extremely compact and lightweight. Excellent touchscreen. Very good image quality.
The Bad Some users might find the design a little cramped. No built-in Wi-Fi. Short battery life compared to other SLRs.
The Bottom Line Offering the same image quality as other entry-level Canon SLRs but with a much smaller body, the 100D is a satisfying first step into the world of SLR photography.
Canon EOS 100D
Lured by the prospect of an interchangeable lens camera (ILC)? Canon wants to bring you back to the world of SLRs with the 100D.
Engineered for photographers who have always wanted the flexibility of an SLR, but have been put off by the size and weight, the 100D weighs just 407 grams. Though it looks like any other Canon SLR from the outside, everything is smaller — 12 per cent slimmer than the 650D, which was released last year.
Not much has been compromised on the specification sheet, however. The camera shares the same 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as the 650D and the 700D, which was announced at the same time as the 100D. It has a Digic 5 image processor and nine AF points, though only one cross-type at the centre.
