If you are on the market seeking out the best travel camera, one that is small, compact, but can also take incredible photos\u2014we have the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 to discuss. Considered one of the smallest mirrorless cameras available, its small size is hiding 4K video and 24.1 megapixels.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Canon EOS Rebel SL3\r\nOne of the smallest mirrorless cameras to grace our list, the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 comes equipped with an external microphone, 4K video capture, and 24.1 megapixels to play with.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nDon\u2019t let its small size deter you; the Rebel SL3 is packing an admirable amount of performance. Equipped with a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor, an updated DIGIC 8 image processor, and a good AF system, the Rebel SL3 is capable of capturing stunningly high quality images. You can let auto ISO do the work, but for more advanced users, you can fiddle with the high ISO capabilities\u2014as high as 51,200.\r\n\r\nImage quality aside, video recording is good, but not the greatest. It\u2019s mostly to do with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. During fast-moving moments, autofocus can have trouble zoning in. At the same time, you only get nine AF points to fiddle with. It\u2019s still leagues better than the Canon PowerShot ELPH 180 though.\r\n\r\nBattery life varies based on your settings, but is overall pretty excellent for a mirrorless camera. During live view mode, you can net about 320 shots; with the optical viewfinder, it\u2019s 1,070.\r\nDesign\r\nWhile the Canon EOS Rebel SL3 body looks bulky at first glance, sharing a similar design to the Panasonic Lumix FZ80, it\u2019s rather compact in nature\u2014one of the smallest, in fact. It measures at 2.70 x 4.80 x 3.60 inches, without a kit lens fitted to it and weighs 2.17 pounds. Not as light as, say, an Olympus TG-5.\r\n\r\nIn addition to its compact size, Canon made some smart design decisions regarding the various buttons, most of which can be found on the right-hand side. The SL3 also has built-in flash that pops-up when needed. You can find the memory card slow along the bottom, including the battery.\r\nValue\r\nThe Canon EOS Rebel SL3 is a bit of a Frankenstein. First off, it comes bundled with the SL2\u2019s lens kit, and sporting an identical image sensor and processor to Canon\u2019s own EOS M50. Is that bad? No, not at all\u2014but it does reveal Canon\u2019s attempt to rehash their tech.\r\n\r\nWith that said, the Canon Rebel SL3 does find its niche as a good choice for vloggers. Since it supports external microphones, and you wouldn\u2019t have to fiddle with the settings often. It goes well with a EF-S 10-18mm f\/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. However, if you\u2019re seeking identical performance, with better autofocus performance, we\u2019d recommend the EOS M50.\r\nCanon EOS Rebel SL3 Wrap Up\r\nThe Canon EOS Rebel SL3 falls short in a few key categories the uninitiated wouldn\u2019t even notice; experienced users would disagree. What it does do, it can do well\u2014in addition to an excellent battery life and compact design. It\u2019s a really solid choice for vloggers, thanks to its external mic. It still beats out its predecessor, the EOS Rebel SL2, by a mile.
