The Canon EOS 100D, known as the EOS Rebel SL1 in the Americas and EOS Kiss X7 in Japan, is an 18.0-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera announced by Canon on 21 March 2013.[1] It has been described as the "world's smallest and lightest DSLR camera", either currently in production[2] or in the APS-C format.[3] Canon uses a smaller version of the APS-C sensor format than some other manufacturers including Nikon, Pentax, and Sony, with a crop factor of 1.6 rather than 1.5. It weighs 407 grams including battery and memory card.[4]


The EOS 100D shares a similar set of features with the larger Canon EOS 700D. However, it does have an improved focus tracking system in live view mode called Hybrid CMOS AF II with 80% frame coverage. The 700D has the previous version of Hybrid CMOS AF with much reduced frame coverage.[5]

Features include:

  • 17.9 effective megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 5 image processor with 14-bit processing
  • 95% viewfinder frame coverage with 0.87× magnification
  • 1080p HD video recording at 24p, 25p (25 Hz) and 30p (29.97 Hz) with drop frame timing
  • 720p HD video recording at 50p (50 Hz) and 60p (59.94 Hz)
  • 480p ED video recording at 30p and 25p
  • 4.0 frames per second continuous shooting
  • 3.0-inch Clear View II LCD touchscreen with 1.04-megapixel resolution. However, the 100D has a fixed screen, unlike the articulated screen of the 700D (and that camera's immediate predecessors, the 650D and 600D).
  • 3.5mm microphone jack for external microphones or recorders
