Canon has lifted the veil off the EOS 250D, the company’s latest DSLR to join its lineup, and the smallest to date. The new Canon EOS 250D, also known as the Rebel SL3 in some markets, follows on the footsteps of the EOS 200D. It combines years of Canon’s expertise in the DSLR market in a small form factor.
Inside, you still get the same 24MP sensor from the 200D, but Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 image processor promises better image processing. The swinging 3-inch 1.04 million dot LCD is also from the older model, and comes with touch capabilities.
You get 5 fps burst mode, the standard Canon EOS EF mount to mount any lens from the EF family, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to transfer images out to smartphones wirelessly.
Canon included the 4K recording mode from the EOS M50 mirrorless model in the 250D, but be forewarned; it has a disappointingly large crop at that resolution. Recording at 1080p60 is there, but not for slow-motion recording. Thankfully, there is a microphone port to plug in your mic.
Canon is offering the new EOS 250D in body-only or with the EF-S 18-55 f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. The former will be priced at US$599.99 (~RM2464) and the latter is expected to be priced at US$749.99 (~RM3080). Availability for the EOS 250D is expected to start from April onwards, in either Black, Silver or White with Malaysia pricing and availability to be determined later.
