How Big is the Canon EOS Rebel SL1?
There are multiple factors to consider when purchasing a camera for traveling, but the most important to me is the size. I travel carry-on only everywhere I go, and I’ve been able to do so partially by keeping the size of my camera gear to a minimum.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR camera. It’s 4.6 inches wide, 3.57 inches tall, and has a depth of 2.74 inches, excluding the lens.
To put this into perspective, it’s about as wide as an iPhone 4 is tall, and it’s about as tall as a cigarette lighter. This comes together to form a camera that is both extremely small and has a wide range of functionality.
