award, gold, trophy iconOur latest addition to the Rebel Series is ready to go wherever your adventures take you. Worry no more about lugging around a heavy and bulky camera. Our smallest and lightest DSLR yet is very travel friendly. You won’t have to worry about missing those once-in-a-lifetime shots, whether you’re going on a road trip or hopping on a plane to see the other side of the world. The enhanced Hybrid CMOS AutoFocus System quickly and steadily keeps track of your focused subject. That means the game-winning goal or your dog’s gravity-defying catch will always be within your sights. Wondering how London’s Big Ben would look with the Toy Camera filter? Now you can preview how Creative Filter impacts your shot right on the Live View LCD screen. We’ve added new Scene Modes to boost your photography. Kids Scene Mode has the ability to freeze movement, so even the most energetic little one can be photographed without blur. Food Scene Mode makes your gourmet creations look even more mouthwatering and Candlelight Scene Mode captures the original candlelight atmosphere without spoiling it with flash.
