It is worth considering alternative digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity including the Canon EOS 1300D - Rebel T6 ($239.95), or the Nikon D5300 ($149.95).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Like most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the SL1, the Canon SL1 is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The Canon SL1 does not have a GPS, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other SLR cameras that were released in the last 12 months also do not have a GPS.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also have a GPS including the D5300 ($149.95), or the D610 ($179.95) both from Nikon or the Canon EOS 750D - Rebel T6i ($669.95).

Alternative digital cameras which also have a built-in flash that you might want to look at include the Canon EOS 750D - Rebel T6i ($669.95), or the Nikon D610 ($179.95).

Average Screen Size

At 3 inches, the Canon SL1 has a relatively typical screen size compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were released in the last 12 months.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might want to consider the EOS 750D - Rebel T6i ($669.95) (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the EOS 1300D - Rebel T6 ($239.95) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Canon or the Nikon D810 (CF|SD|SDHC|SDXC).
