Canon's smallest dSLR grows a little

It's a little bigger than its predecessor, but the EOS Rebel SL2, but with four years of essential updates to cram in, it's not surprising.

Dual Pixel CMOS inside

The SL2  incorporates the same Dual Pixel CMOS with on-chip autofocus sensors that's in the T7i.

Basically the same body

Canon has made some cosmetic changes to the body, moved the USB and HDMI ports to the grip side and added an articulated touchscreen LCD.

Articulated LCD

  The LCD has an oddly big bezel on the left side.

Articulated LCD

Wait. Wasn't that fat bezel on the other side? I hope it's just the angle of the photos.

Grip side

The grip looks like it's lost some of the front indentation, but Canon says it's deeper.

Top

In addition to the new look for the buttons, switches and a recessed mode dial, there's a new dedicated connection button.

Back

With the exception of the LCD, all the changes on the back just modernize the look a little.
