Canon EOS Rebel SL1
Price: $799.99 (with 18-55mm STM lens)
Availability: April 2013
The outlook: Essentially a miniaturized version of the EOS Rebel T5i, the SL1 promises to be the smallest dSLR to date. Plus it incoporates an updated version of the hybrid CMOS sensor which integrates both contrast autofocus and phase-detection AF technologies for better autofocus during video shooting.
- Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)

The good: Sized for small-to-medium hands, the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 delivers the expected photo and video quality in a comfortable and well-executed design.
The bad: It's pretty slim on features.
The bottom line: While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
