Canon Rebel SL1 White Alias EOS 100D for the American And European

Canon unveiled a white version of the EOS 100D, called EOS Kiss X7 in Japan. The smallest digital EOS SLR camera comes with a white EF 40 mm 2.8 STM, the smallest EF lens from the Japanese manufacturer. The Japanese customers are considered to be more open for colourful camera housings, even though white strictly speaking cannot be described as a colourful colour. However, the DSLR is not completely white, but the rubberised surfaces on the handle and some controls set visual accents with their grey colour.

The EF-S 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM, on the other hand, is only available in black with the white Kiss X7. The 18-megapixel EOS 100D was launched in April 2013 and measures only 117 x 91 x 69 millimetres. Together with the 40 mm STM, it weighs in at barely more than half a kilogram ready for operation, and yet impressed us in our test above all with its high image quality (see further links).

When Canon launched a white version of the EOS 100D on the Japanese market in November 2013, there were no sales opportunities for color DSLRs on the American and European markets (we reported). This view has now changed, about a year after the announcement of the black EOS 100D, and the white 100D will be available from selected retailers in May 2014. In contrast to the model in Japan, which came with a white variant of the fixed focal length 40mm 2.8 STM pancake lens, Canon in this country is relying on a new white variant of the 18-55mm STM zoom lens

The EOS 100D is the smallest and lightest DSLR in the world, according to a November 2013 Canon study, measuring 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4 millimetres. However, in addition to automatic control, it also offers full manual control of all recording parameters. Your APS-C sensor has a resolution of 18 megapixels and is built using CMOS technology. The sensor includes built-in phase auto focus sensors that are designed to accelerate focusing when using the Live View function and during Full HD video recording. Image control in Live View and during playback is via the 7.7 centimetre screen at the rear (about three inches). Both the white camera and the white lens essentially use light grey as a contrasting colour, especially for the rubber coatings. From May 2014, the white Canon EOS 100D will be available as a set with the white EF-S 18.55mm 3.5-5.6 IS STM at a price of almost 650 EUR from selected specialist dealers.
