About the Canon 100D Rebel SL1 Kiss X7
Canon EOS 100D is designed for those who are attracted to the compact dimensions of a mirror-less camera model but would like to take advantage of having an optical viewfinder. With a dimension of 116.8mm x 90.7mm x 69.4mm and a weight of 407g, the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 Kiss X7 is both lightweight and compact.
Inside, it comes with a 2nd generation Hybrid 18-Mpix CMOS sensor.
Body & Design
Notwithstanding the physical size, the design of the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 Kiss X7 is familiar to anyone who is a fan of the entry-level Canon SLRs in the last few years. Featuring a polycarbonate and aluminum resin body construction, the camera feels very solid when you hold it in your hands.
The camera’s textured handgrip is deep enough to allow a firm grip of the camera, while there is also a familiar contoured thumb pad at the right side of the camera. All those key shooting controls that you would expect from an entry level Rebel series are present in this camera, such as the focus point selection, as well as an exposure lock.
There’s also a dedicated ISO, depth-of-field preview buttons and exposure compensation. The camera’s SET option and Q menu shares a button and surrounded with a 4-way controller.
The camera’s directional keys do not have any functions assigned to them. Instead, what they have are secondary options that can be assessed through an on-screen Q panel.
Operation & Controls
At the top of the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 all controls are placed at the camera’s right side. Just behind the shutter button is the camera’s main control dial and is used directly when changing the primary exposure setting, such as program shift, aperture, and shutter speed.
There’s also an ISO button that’s placed extremely well for ease of operation while the camera is in your eye. You simply have to press the camera and spin the dial in order to change the value, which is displayed at the optical viewfinder.
The camera’s main power switch surrounds the model dial. The mode dial is similar to the Rebel SL1, however the SCN icon covers up to six modes instead of the usual three. The camera’s dial is capable of rotating up to 360 degrees with no hard stop, which is a welcome feature that we have seen earlier from the EOS 6D model of Canon.
Touchscreen and Hybrid AF
The Canon EOS 100D uses the same capacitative-type multi-touch screen similar that was first seen on the Canon EOS 650D.
This means that the multi-touch screen works in the same way as the modern smartphones, except that it is highly responsive and has a more intuitive interface.
Just like with other touchscreen cameras, it’s possible to set a desired focus point for this camera by simply touching its screen. Just like the EOS M, you can simply adjust the touchscreen’s sensitivity, which, as per Cannon, can make it functional even if you’re wearing thin gloves.
The touchscreen interface of the Canon EOS 100D is the same with the EOS 650D as well as the EOS M. However, unlike the 650D, the screen of this camera is fixed and not articulated.
The camera’s capacitive touch screen and fast processing feature means that the camera interface is very responsive. Pressing the camera’s center Q button at the back of the camera can bring up the camera’s touch-sensitive quick menu.
Just like with the previous Canon models, you do not need to use the touchscreen of the camera if you do not want to. You can simply navigate around the Q screen with the use of a 4-way controller and then change the selected setting by simply spinning the camera’s main dial. The Q menu’s range of available options is not entirely comprehensive, however, in PASM mode, it could very well quickly adjust to almost all of the settings that you wanted.
Clearly, the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 Kiss X7 is built to provide an alternative to the mirror-less camera, including Canon’s very own EOS M, while also maintaining compatibility with the EF-S and EF lenses. Unlike the earlier attempts made on video autofocus and live view, the SL1 performs extremely well in tracking and focusing, all thanks to its new Hybrid AF II system.
