Canon EOS Rebel SL3 / 250D Review

The Canon EOS SL2 (also known as the 200D and Kiss X9) is one of the company’s best-selling DSLRs. And it’s not surprising, as the SL2 was a low-priced, competent camera that you could slip into a purse or small bag.

The new SL3 (250D, Kiss X10) isn’t a dramatic departure from the SL2: it’s still small, inexpensive and most up-to-date in terms of features. It borrows many features from Canon’s EOS M50 mirrorless camera, including the DIGIC 8 processor and rather disappointing 4K video camera capabilities. But more on that later.

The Rebel SL3 will be available at the end of April for $599 body-only or $749 bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6mm IS STM lens. We’re featuring the white version in this article, because we think it looks snazzy.
