Canon SL2 EOS Rebel Camera (200d): Ultimate Review

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Today I’m going to tell you about the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 camera and why I think it’s one of the best Canon mini-dslr cameras. I’ll give you a brief overview of why this Canon camera is great for video and for YouTube creators. We’ll look at features like the flip screen, Canon Dual Pixel autofocus for video, interchangeable lenses, timelapse movie mode, image stabilization and many more.

I’ll then dive deeper and look at the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 sensor and processor, audio options with the external mic input, Wifi and bluetooth features, lens options and much more.

I’m literally waiting for FedEx to deliver my SL2 camera to me right now! This video was all the reason why I purchased it for my channel & occasional pics as well! I’m excited. I had to come back to watch it again!!! Great video!

Another excellent review. I had the SL1 (100D as its called in UK) but I messed up the inside whilst trying to clean it and some of the autofocus points stopped lighting up the way they used to when putting it into automatic mode. I only found out the day before my son's graduation and panic set in. I then purchased the SL2 that same day from a store and it is excellent as I already knew about most of the settings and controls from the 100d. I love the flip out screen and wifi capabilities. I could not see the face tracking setting or different colour options for the basic screen which shows what mode your in and all the other options like on the 100d. Im more of a photographer than videographer. If you know how to change the colour or where the face tracking setting is please let me know, thanks.

Great review! Very helpful and informative – just what I was looking for

Deyvson Moutinho Caliman says:

I will buy this camera soon, indeed great value. The only reason I didn't buy it yet is because I wouldn't use it right now, like I have no intention of making videos, but the first excuse I have I will buy it. Does it have auto-HDR? This makes all the difference for landscape and it's basically the only feature I would be missing if it doesn't have.

Amazon specs says its 'automatic only'….does that mean there is no manual mode?
