    Great Upgrade!

    I bought the Canon Rebel SL2 as an upgrade to my much loved Canon SL1, on which I learned to use a DSLR camera. I'd only had my SL1 for just under 1.5 years, and although I loved it a lot (still do), I yearned for a reasonably-priced small DSLR (preferably Canon, for reputation and ease of use and also since I have several Canon lenses) that had more desirable features such as a flip screen and bluetooth, so I was understandably thrilled to discover that the SL2 was already on the market--and, being late Fall, was just waiting for it to go on sale, which it did over Thanksgiving weekend while I was visiting my daughter in northern Washington! This camera is absolutely WONDERFUL! Not only does it take even better photos than my SL1 (which also did a great job)-my SL2 has already won accolades from friends who said the photos I took at a staff dinner, a baptism, and a wedding were the very best pictures of all those that were taken at those events! While both the Canon SL1 and SL2 are small DSLR's and considered beginners cameras, many of the photos I've taken with them have won praises from professional photographers--and one photo even won First Place in a local photography contest! Now, having more megapixels (24 vs. 18), bluetooth and an articulated flip screen, I have already taken some great photos--and can't wait for the next photography contest to come along!

    This camera is just amazing! I'm fairly new to photography and didn't know how to use it at first but after having it for around a month now, I have gotten the hang of it. I did do a little research online about what all the different modes do, the manual included with the camera was also very helpful. The UI on the camera also had tips and pointers for what everything does making it great for me as a beginner. It really takes the best pictures out of any camera that I have owned. I can cast pictures and video up to my 65" TV and they look amazing still. I love the small form factor compared to other DSLRs and it super lightweight. I often use a tripod to snap photos of myself and my husband with the Canon App. The app is really cool, you can even see what the camera sees right from the screen on your phone. The software you can download online for PC or Mac is also very helpful for editing and organizing your photos. Wonderful buy. I'm so glad I bought it.

    Great DSLR

    This is a great camera. I grew up around various digital and DSLR cameras, but never had one of my own. This is my very first one. I had done my research as to which one would best fit my needs, and I ended up choosing this one for the digital viewfinder that could be pulled out, the small body, and the wireless features. The small body was essential since I have small hands, and I use this for sports shots. The only thing I was disappointed about was that I ordered to pick up in store, choosing the white model. But I had arrived in store, I found out the computer made a mistake, and there were no white models left. I was going to an event right then where I needed the camera, or else I would have simply ordered online to ship to my house. I understand the return policy, and decided it wasn't worth it to any additional fees just to get another camera that would exactly the same way. I've only had this camera for about a few weeks, but I'm very happy with how easy it is to work and how great the pictures turn out.

    I specifically wanted something different and the white and icy gray touches really excited me. I love that it’s not heavy & fits in my small hands perfectly without slipping due to the nice grip it has on it. I have taken about 200 pix on it, so for from my recent trip to Curaçao. I was able to capture the beauty of that country with a different set of eyes and it was amazing. It’s so many features on the camera that I’m still learning but so far, I am happy with this purchase. Once I master learning everything my camera has to offer then I’ll really be happy. I’ve just only scratched the surface of what this camera can do because I’m still a beginner learning. I love that the camera came with a 18-55m lens, a strap to hang the camera around your neck and it looks great on me. If you’re a beginner get this camera and enjoy. I surely am.

    I'm going to make this little review short and sweet. The camera is classic Rebel all the way, feels perfect in the hand (try it out at a store for yourself first) and performs like a pro camera in image quality. No weather sealing or super fast burst rates here, just an amazingly low price, and the same exact sensor from the big boy cameras. Save your wallet and go on an extra trip and get this Canon now! Shoot RAW and be amazed at the dynamic range of this sensor! P.S. Although I usually toss the kit lens into a box / drawer and forget about it, I tried out the new Canon 18-55 F4-5.6 STM and it is actually a strong performer! I was giddy with joy about this! I took it for a photo walk and the results actually inspired me to use this little zoom lens more! Great starter lens!

    Camera is awesome, Best Buy is not

    USED

    I purchased this online this morning with in store pick up selected as “shipping.” I got a text and email before the store opened that it was ready to be picked up. I went to the store a few hours later and they gave me a used model. The camera is great! It was clearly not cleaned, someone else had set their iPhone up on it and there was an imprint on the bottom from where someone screwed in a tripod too tight. These aren’t deal breakers, but I definitely paid for a brand new model and that’s what I should have gotten.

    I bought this camera with the intention of catching moments and memories of my family growing up without having to use my phone all the time. However, this camera has exceeded my expectations. As a beginner, the guided instructions make it so easy to navigate and learn. I love how quickly it captures photos as my baby will not sit still for very long. It does well in low lighting or bright lighting and the video quality is great as well. I definitely recommend purchasing this product for a beginner or more experienced photographer!

    I've been thinking of starting a YouTube channel for quite some time now and I thought I should stop putting it off and get a camera that could be used in multiple ways. I never had a DSLR or any camera of my own other than my phone camera so I thought I would treat myself. I stumbled upon this camera and couldn't believe how perfect the features were for me. I was also SO delighted that the camera came in a white color. So far, it's been amazing and very user friendly and what a great price for such good quality photos! I highly recommend! :)

    If you are thinking of getting the t6 rebel, dont. Spend a little more and get this one. Faster focusing speed, higher ISO for low light situations, cool flippy screen for selfies, 60fp 1080p video mode (t6 does 30fps). Sleightly less battery life but totally worth it in image quality. Also shutter speed is faster, can snap like 10 pics in a second. Shutter is also super duper quiet. Tons of settings. Fits all my old lenses.

    I purchased this camera, and fell in love with it right away. It was easy to set up and charge. The touch screen was easy to use. I went on line for a tutorial on how to use it and was great. Using live view makes it easy to see how the picture will come out. If you are a beginner it has great presets that make pictures great. If you use manual mode i would use the live view to see how the picture will look. It is a great beginning camera and great for the experienced photographer.

    I'm a beginner with photography so I decided to pick up the EOS SL2/200D and I am beyond happy with it! It's perfect, I got the kit lens as well as the 50mm 1.8! I definitely recommend this product to anyone interested in photography and vlogging! Also I ordered online and requested store pick up, because it was out of stock at the Longmont location they shipped it for free and it arrived earlier than expected! Super happy with this purchase and overall experience with Bestbuy :)

    I spent a few months looking into what camera I should invest in as a novice photographer and many people recommended getting the SL2. After using it for 2 months I have enjoyed the ease of use and have been using the kit lens to this point. I just bought the Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM lens and have yet to shoot with it. The camera has instructional menu options that make it easy to understand all the features of the camera.

    My wife started with a Canon Rebel EOS film body, then I upgraded her years back to a DSLR with Compact Flash. I believe it was 10mp at the time, which was phenomenal, but clearly was dated technology at this point. Maintaining lens compatibility is obviously our primary goal at this point. This was a great package, and her collection of lens works flawlessly. The body is smaller than the original - and hopefully batter life will be improved. So far, we're happy with the purchase.

    I love my camera the quality of the pictures are amazing! I went from a power shot to the rebel & must I say very worth the money I spent on it! Only things my charger went out the next few days I went in the store to have it replaced since I bought the protection plan just for Best Buy to give me the run arounds with it! The costumer service they have is horrible!

    This DSLR Camera was more than I anticipated on spending on a Camera but since I wanted something with a screen and ability to have a swiveling screen was the deciding factor. I love that this Camera is white especially since most DSLR Camera's are black I definately feel like its a rare commodity. This camera has alot going on with it but given its price and what its capable of - It's very impressive. Glad I purchased this instead of a cheaper camera.

    This camera is great for beginners but that doesn't mean it won't do great for professionals. The starter lens is excellent for a beginner and you can use different lenses as well. You don't have to waste a ton of money on a camera because the lighting is the essential element in photography. If you want something easy to use for family photos or outdoor photos, this camera would be wonderful!

    This is a great camera for a beginner vlogger like myself. I’m starting a YouTube channel and after doing extensive research it seems as though this camera was perfect for a starter camera. The only thing is I had to purchase separate lenses to vlog with but I bought 2 for the price of one. I haven’t recorded many videos yet but the ones that I have are awesome.

    Wanted a camera with good low light capabilities and interchangeable lenses without being in over my head. The Feature Assistant is great for me as it allows me to choose camera settings without having to take lessons. In other words it's good for those, like me, that might not have much knowledge or don't want to learn the intricacies of photography.

    I have been obsessing over getting a DSLR for years and finally took the plunge. This camera is perfect for beginners. It is quite easy to use and very compact for travel. I am excited to attend Best Buy classes to learn more about my camera and use it to its full potential. It was difficult not getting the white one, but ended up being good advise from my BB salesman - would never have been able to keep it white.
