With the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D), Canon introduces the successor model of the smallest and lightest DSLR with a rotatable and tiltable screen to date. The Rebel SL3 again claims this title of the smallest DSLR with a flexible touchscreen. The news takes place mainly on the inside: For example, the new APS-C sensor, which still has a 24-megapixel resolution, and the Digic-8 image processor are now capable of recording videos in 4K resolution; the 200D still had to make do with Full HD. There are also improvements in the autofocus.

Canon Rebel SL2 (EOS 250D) Pros And Cons

Pros

  • Fast autofocus
  • Easy handling
  • Pleasantly tactile housing
  • Very good energy efficiency

Cons

  • Plastic housing looks cheap
  • Color fidelity could be better
  • Crop in 4K video recording
  • No standard center contact

Small, handy and light, this is how the entry-level Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) from Canon presents itself. The camera is the successor of the EOS 200D and has to show whether Canon can take more image quality from the 24-megapixel APS-C sensor than the previous model. Of course, we also took a close look at the functionality as well as the handling and showed in an extensive test whether Canon has succeeded in maintaining the quality of the previous model and of course, let´s see if it improved at all.

The fact that the improvements only affect live-view operation shows once again that mirrorless systems continue to gain ground and still offer development potential.

The DSLR-phase autofocus, on the other hand, still has to make do with a meager nine measuring fields, of which only the middle one is a cross sensor. The dual-pixel CMOS AF, on the other hand, works over virtually the entire sensor area and now also detects eyes to focus on when taking photos and videos, which is particularly useful when using high-intensity portrait lenses. So the autofocus sits even more securely when using the live image.

The 4K video function also requires the live image, as the recording chip would be “blind” when using the SLR.

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) can not only record normal videos but also compile time-lapse recordings or extract single images with about 8.3 megapixels resolution from 4K videos.

Furthermore, thanks to the rotatable and tiltable touch screen, so-called vlogging (video blogging) is no problem, just like photo selfies.

However, you have to do without the dual-pixel CMOS autofocus in 4K resolution; it only works in Full HD video resolution. With 4K videos, you have to make do with contrast autofocus.

With the bright 3″ touchscreen you can make all settings on the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) and use the live view or view photos or videos. For better protection, the monitor can simply be folded towards the camera. [Photo: Canon]

To make shooting easier for beginners, the small EOS also gives the photographer tips on the screen if desired. Those who want to can unfold their creativity by adjusting aperture, ISO sensitivity and exposure time, but digital filter functions, color effects and much more are also offered.

In addition, the more powerful Digic 8 image processor comes with the DLO. The Digital Lens Optimizer can reduce optical errors of the attached lens. Like its predecessor, the 200D, the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) also has WLAN and Bluetooth to connect to smartphones, tablets or computers. This allows photos to be transferred on the move and shared on social networks or uploaded to the cloud, for example. But remote control is also possible via app including live image display on the smartphone or tablet.

Since 2019 the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) is available in different kits in black, silver and white. The naked camera costs about 550 dollars in the black color. With the EF-S 18-55 IS STM set lens, 100 dollars are added, then you can choose between the black camera with a black lens or the silver or white camera, each with a silver lens. With the EF-S 18-135mm IS, the price is 1,050 dollars. Like the case alone, the set is only available in black.

Ergonomics and Workmanship For The Canon Rebel SL3 

As mentioned in the introduction, the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) is the direct descendant of the Canon Rebel SL2 or EOS 200D, which we tested in 2017.

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) shares a lot with its ancestor. These include the dimensions of 122 x 93 x 70 millimeters (W x H x D) and the operational weight of about 690 grams with the EF-S 18-55 mm 4-5.5 IS STM Set lens.

In addition, a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor also ensures that the EOS 250D can capture images. How well or badly this works can be seen in the section “Picture quality” further down in the test.

The small case fits well in the hand, even though the plastic feels a bit “gravelly” and cheap. The rubber coating on the well-proportioned handle leaves a good impression and offers an excellent grip. However, with larger hands, the little finger accurately reaches into the void.

Nevertheless, it is wrong to assume that the rubber lining alone is responsible for the good grip. Rather, it is the interaction of the shape of the housing and the choice of materials.

With the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D), Canon has taken the right handle shape, which merges into an ideal thumb cavity on the back. This puts the thumb within reach of the on/off switch and the two function keys on the hump to the right of the thumb cavity.

The layout of the control elements has hardly changed at all in contrast to its predecessor. The directional pad, menu and info button and live view switch are still located on the back of the camera.

Not much seems to have happened on the upper side either. The slightly recessed mode dial and ISO and display button are located on the right.

The shutter release and the only adjustment wheel are also found here. In contrast, the WLAN button on the left side of the camera has been “streamlined”. The finish of the housing is clean, nothing squeaks or looks shaky.

The viewfinder is the main feature of an SLR camera. With the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) a so-called mirror viewfinder is used. This type of viewfinder system uses a special mirror arrangement to redirect the light projected onto the focusing screen so that the photographer can see a mirror image through the eyepiece. Although these viewfinders are quite cheap to produce, they have clear disadvantages compared to pentaprism viewfinders. The disadvantage consists of the somewhat limited field of view – in the case of the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) 95 percent – and a clearly darker viewfinder picture. The viewfinder is not very suitable for spectacle wearers because of the shadows in the corners, but fortunately, there is an easily accessible diopter compensation that can be used to compensate for minor visual defects.

The back of the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) is dominated by the swivel and foldable 3″ touchscreen. It has a resolution of 1.04 million pixels and achieves a very good maximum brightness of 890 candela per square meter.

This allows the display to be used without any problems even in very bright ambient light. Thanks to the high degree of mobility, the monitor can be rotated for transport to the camera and is thus optimally protected.

However, the monitor’s freedom of movement is mainly used in practical photography. Frog and bird’s-eye views, for example, are much easier to realize than with a rigidly installed monitor.

The touch function of the monitor has been implemented in an exemplary manner, as with the predecessor model.

The photographer can easily use the touchscreen for menu navigation and shooting settings. Thanks to the function keys, important settings such as exposure correction and ISO sensitivity can be changed directly without using the touchscreen.

At the heart of the operation is the Quick Menu key, Q for short. This must always be pressed once before a change is made in the recording menu so that the camera knows that an entry is now to be made. Thanks to the prominent localization of the button, this is easy to do.

In Live View mode, however, some elements can be activated and changed directly on the touch screen. Which values these depend on the selected operating mode.

The EOS 250D shows the photographer the changeable elements by a framed button. All other settings can then be accessed via the Q button. The camera does a really good job of offering help to the photographer.

Tests have shown that a “mixed operation” of function keys with the setting wheel and the touch screen is the easiest to handle and that the selection of functions and settings can be learned quickly.

In addition to the quickly accessible basic functions, the photographer is free to make major adjustments in the form of individual functions. Changes in this area usually result in significant changes in camera behavior.

For example, you can activate a mirror lock-up or decouple the autofocus from the shutter release and move it to another button. Canon has really done an excellent job in handling the camera.

As already with the EOS 200D only the native 3:2 aspect ratio of the viewfinder can be used in the conventional viewfinder mode. The situation is different when the camera is in live view mode. Because then the photographer can use 4:3, 16:9 and 1:1 as the aspect ratio for his shots in addition to the 3:2 aspect ratio.

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) has two connection terminals that are located on the sides of the camera. Under the handle, there is a mini HDMI (type C) and a micro USB port, which unfortunately cannot be used for power supply or battery charging. On the left side of the camera is the 3.5 mm jack plug connection for external microphones and the 2.5 mm jack plug connection for a cable remote control.

The memory card and battery shared apartment is accessible from the camera floor. The power supply used is the LP-E17 lithium-ion battery, which is said to be sufficient to take more than 1,000 pictures (note when using the viewfinder instead of the live view) according to the CIPA standard.

In the test it turned out that the camera really does use energy sparingly. Thus, one battery charge was sufficient for the entire test, including the lab shots and the serial image speed test. The memory used is the SD form factor with SDHC, SDXC and UHS-I support.

After all, a correspondingly fast memory card reached a maximum of 77 megabytes per second write speed in our measurement in the camera, which is a very good value for the theoretically maximum 104 MB/s fast UHS I.

On the upper side of the Rebel SL3, there is a small manual fold-out flash unit. The camera also has a hot shoe for compatible system flashes, but more on this later. Invisible from the photographer’s eyes are the Bluetooth and WLAN connection options.

Equipment And Features Of The Canon Rebel SL3

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) belongs undoubtedly to the beginner’s cameras and she does not deny that. With twelve scene modes, it makes a wide variety of shooting situations easier for beginners.

Even small intervention options, such as exposure correction, are available. For those who find this too much effort, the automatic scene control can put the reins in their hands. The camera then recognizes the corresponding subject and makes the appropriate shooting settings.

Processing instructions are also transferred to the DiGIC 8 image processor. The latter will, of course, fail if the images are saved as raw data.

After all, the photographer can intervene in his pictures with the help of a creative assistant in the automatic scene mode control. To accomplish this, settings for background blur, color saturation and much more are available. In addition, one can also fall back on so-called image styles. But more about that later.

Of course, the photographic aspirant can also resort to automatic time, aperture, and program control or experiment with the completely manual mode.

Image Styles are a creative tool to get more out of your own images right from the moment you take them. This allows you to adjust the recording characteristics of the images. For example, preset image styles are available for monochrome, vivid shots or retro shots.

Each preset is also customizable in various details. These include contrast, color saturation, hue, sharpness, brightness and more. In addition to the presets, there are also three memory locations available for your own creations.

But there’s still a lot more to come in terms of creative possibilities when it comes to picture styles, as various special effects are also available directly during shooting.

But that’s not the end of the story either, because in playback mode these effects can also be combined with existing images. These are then saved as new files.

In addition, the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) can also edit its own raw data images and write them to the memory card as JPEG images.

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) has, like every DSLR with Live View function, two autofocus measuring systems.

The phase AF system typical of DSLRs takes over the focusing when the mirror is down. For this purpose, the system uses nine measuring points with a central sensor with cross-characteristic.

The Rebel SL3 focused our test setup in about 0.17 seconds in the wide-angle and 0.21 seconds in the telephoto range, both including the shutter release.

A hybrid system is used for the live view. The system can automatically select the focus area from 143 AF zones.

If the photographer wants to do this manually, he can even use 3,975 measuring points on 88 percent of the sensor width and 100 percent of the sensor height directly on the recording sensor.

The dual-pixel CMOS AF system used is significantly faster than a conventional contrast autofocus. In the case of the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D), the camera focuses in about 0.25 seconds in wide-angle and 0.31 seconds in telephoto, also including the shutter release.  However, if the camera is used in video mode for 4K shots, the videographer must do without the fast dual-pixel AF system. Only the slower contrast autofocus is used here.

In order to illuminate pictures even in poor light, artificial light in the form of the built-in flash can be used.

However, despite his guide number of ten (ISO 100 / one meter), one should not expect miracles from him. At ISO 100 and at a set aperture of 4, the range is about 2.5 meters.

Fortunately, the camera has a flash shoe for system flashes, which can then be used to illuminate larger areas.

Unfortunately, the built-in flash does not master the wireless control of unleashed flash devices. This requires a compatible system flash unit or a control unit on the hot shoe. The possibility to trigger a flash by center contact is no longer available in the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D).

The camera achieves a continuous shooting speed of about 5.4 shots per second for raw shots until ten shots are in the can.

After that, the irregular continuous run stutters at about two frames per second. With JPEG recordings, it’s just under five frames per second for 57 shots before the buffer memory is full and the camera writes them to the memory card at a brisk 77 megabytes per second.

If a memory card is used that can write at least 77 megabytes per second, then there is nothing to prevent a 4K recording at 25 frames per second.

However, the plastic housing of the camera makes itself unwantedly noticeable during the continuous shooting function, as the mirror in the housing happily rattles along while the continuous shooting is being written to the memory card.

In the test of the EOS 200D (Canon Rebel SL2), we still called the video functions as standard, because it could not record as FullHD videos anymore.

Fortunately, this has changed with the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D), at least a little. The reason for this is the 4K video resolution (3,840 x 2,160) with a maximum of 25 frames per second. However, the video function crops the sensor image and thus significantly reduces the angle of view of the lens.

As in the photo mode, the video mode is equipped with a motif automatic, manual and semi-automatic modes are also available. In addition, special effects can be recorded during recording.

The photographer has a total of five different special effects at his disposal, which, for example, provide the video with a retro effect. However, these effects are permanent and cannot be reversed afterward.

The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) has a built-in stereo microphone that is automatically controlled. If this is not sufficient, a microphone with a 3.5 mm jack plug can be connected.

If the videos are to be viewed immediately, the camera can be connected to a TV set with an HDMI connection. The autofocus tracking works quite well when using the STM set lens. Settings for the bit rate or even an HDR video mode, however, are not available.

As mentioned at the beginning, the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) has a WLAN and Bluetooth function, but has to do without an NFC function, as the predecessor still had.

To connect the camera to a smart device, the app “Canon Camera Connect” must be installed. It can be downloaded free of charge for iOS and Android smart devices in the corresponding manufacturer shops. The app guides the photographer through the coupling process and presents a connection after a short time.

If both devices are connected, the Bluetooth connection can be used for geotagging. The position data is transferred from the smart device to the camera during recording and immediately written to the metadata of the recording.

Furthermore, the Bluetooth connection can be used for a simple remote release function. If, on the other hand, the photographer wants to use Live View together with the remote control, the app activates the camera’s WLAN function to establish a more powerful connection to the app.

The viewfinder image is quite fast, but unfortunately the adjustment possibilities are very limited. Of course, it is also possible to transfer images from the camera to the smart device, so that they can be immediately transferred to the social networks.

Image Quality Of The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D)

We have measured the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) with the EF-S 18-55 mm 4-5.6 IS STM with the usage of the test software, and in this section of the test report we give an overview of the expected image quality of the camera and lens.

canon rebel sl3

The EF-S 18-55 mm 4-5.6 IS STM is a rather simple set lens without a metal bayonet. It has an optical image stabilizer and a quiet stepper motor for focusing. While the lateral chromatic aberrations (color fringes) are only slightly visible, the lens distortions are very dominant.

At telephoto, the barrel distortion is more than 2.5 percent. In the medium and long focal length, a pincushion distortion of up to about 1.5 percent is apparent. The vignetting is surprisingly low so that one can assume that the camera becomes active here and digitally reduces any edge darkening.

The resolution results of the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) are not on the maximum level, but with about 53 line pairs per millimeter (lp/mm) they are quite appropriate for the 24-megapixel sensor.

This resolution result is achieved at aperture 5.6 in the center of the image. The loss of resolution at the same aperture to the edge of the image is about 40 percent, which is quite significant.

It is often the case that camera manufacturers improve resolution results by subsequently sharpening the image.

This increases the so-called sharpness artifacts and provides strong edge contrast, which is not desired for all applications. The Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) handles image data very gently in this respect and shows only minimal artifacts.

This was also confirmed in the texture measurement, which also showed, however, that a little more sharpening would definitely help the image results.

The image noise is not a particularly big problem, as the brightness noise is hardly visible up to ISO 3,200. The more disturbing color noise has no relevance in any ISO setting. Fine details are visible up to ISO 3,200 and are also eliminated by the noise reduction.

There are also no surprises with the input dynamics. Here the camera achieves a good to very good value with slightly more than twelve f-stops. Only above ISO 6,400 does it drop to a level that is only satisfactory.

The range of tonal values output is also high, reaching almost 256 brightness levels at low sensitivity.

Only from about ISO 3,200 onward do these values, which gradually decrease with increasing sensitivity, fall below the limit of good to acceptable.

With the color fidelity, the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) does not present itself bad at all. The camera shows partly quite clear color shifts. Shades of magenta, orange, yellow-green and yellow are particularly affected. In other areas, the color deviation is not relevant, so that the average color deviation is rather small. The number of colors that can be displayed is good up to ISO 12,800. A maximum color depth of 23 bits is achieved, which is even very good.

All in all, the image quality is good and thanks to customizable image styles, photographers can create their own “recipe” for image editing. The way JPEG recordings look in the default setting, they are a little too softly tuned for immediate use. For picture editors, the EOS 250D offers of course also raw data with which then the last little bit of picture quality can be tickled from the camera.

Conclusions: Is The Canon Rebel SL3 Worth It?

With the Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D), Canon has brought an easy-to-use entry-level camera to the market.

Although the APS-C-DSLR differs from its predecessor model (Canon EOS 200D) (Canon Rebel SL2 in the United States) in only a few points, these can certainly be decisive for some photographers.

Despite the good workmanship, Canon could have worked on the “plastic” feel of the camera. The 4K video function suits the camera very well despite the cropping. The best innovation, however, has been the autofocus.

Here, Canon has increased the speed considerably, which is clearly noticeable in practice. The image results may be a little too soft for immediate use, but even JPEG recordings offer the possibility of differentiated post-processing. T

he Canon Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) is a successful product care with useful innovations and a lot of potential for fast, easy and also for conscious photography. But above all, the energy efficiency is simply amazing.

Peter Dench
I am Peter Dench. Digital Photographer, born in London 1972, currently living in Deerfield, near Chicago. I have numerous photography expositions and also working in model photography. In this website, PhotoPoint, I usually review cameras provided by local dealers in Illinois and by the manufacturers. Sometimes I, Peter Dench, review lenses too, but only when I have a suitable camera for them. Please let me know in the comments if I can improve any of these articles.
