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 successor of the EOS 100D is the EOS 200D.


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:

  • 18.0 effective megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 5 image processor with 14-bit processing
  • 95% viewfinder frame coverage with 0.87x 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" Clear View II LCD touchscreen with 1.04-megapixel resolution. The 100D has a fixed screen (unlike the articulated screen of the 700D and that camera's immediate predecessors, the 650D and 600D).
  • 3.5 mm microphone jack for external microphones or recorders
  • 9-point autofocus sensors with 1 cross type sensor in center
  • The 100D model is also available in white body color.[6] To go together with it the two lenses were produced also in white color: EF-S 18-55mm STM and EF 40mm.
