Answer:
It does depend on your need, but not for the reasons referenced in other answers. A) are you going to shoot video or continuous (sports)? If so you want a faster card Class 6 minimum but probably class 10. Also if you shoot Raw or video you want at least 8gb but probably 16gb in size.

If so you want a faster card Class 6 minimum but probably class 10. Also if you shoot Raw or video you want at least 8gb but probably 16gb in size. Another question is; if you buy one big card 32 or 64 and lose the card or it becomes corrupted you lose all your photos. All professionals recommend multiple smaller size cards for this reason instead of 1 big card. I use a 16gb Sandisk pro Class 10 high speed card, which covers everything and has a free data recovery feature if needed. If this helps please hit the "yes" button! Thanks. see less

Answer:
Yes, the SL1 has APC sensor as the T5, therefore lenses should fit. Some lenses specific for full frame cameras (Canon 5D, 6D, etc) might not fit. More information is available on http://techexperience.net/go/canon/

The neck strap is narrower than others, only about an inch wide ... but the camera and lens are so light that you don't need a wide neck strap, the one in the box is fine. It says Canon and EOS on it. The box also contains the manual (which you don't need) and CD with software and USB cable and warranty card. The kit lens is great ... not the fastest focusing lens, but small and very light and good IS. Any other lens makes the setup heavy and front-heavy. You can carry the SL1 and kit lens around all day and not know it's there. I usually keep the SL1 and a 220EX speedlite in a smallish holster bag. see less

Answer:
These two cameras are very similar. The advantages of the T3i: It has a flip-out screen, and a battery with a longer life than the SL1. But the SL1 is "newer" than the T3i, and therefore it has some tech advantages: (1) It is 30% lighter and smaller than the T3i (and this is a significant advantage when you carry t… see more These two cameras are very similar. The advantages of the T3i: It has a flip-out screen, and a battery with a longer life than the SL1. But the SL1 is "newer" than the T3i, and therefore it has some tech advantages: (1) It is 30% lighter and smaller than the T3i (and this is a significant advantage when you carry the camera all day); (2) It provides continuous auto-focus for videos (which the T3i does not provide); (3) It has a "touch screen" for enlarging and shrinking shot playback; and (4) It offers in-camera HDR. Since technology is constantly improving the quality of cameras and sensors, I would opt for the "newer" vs. the "older" DSLR releases. see less

Answer:
Yes, but... In move mode mirror is lifted up. If you press photo capture button, camera will lower mirror, adjust focus and exposure, lift up mirror back and finally capture image...then will continue roll your movie. It will make about 1-2 second gap in move sequence (kind of disappointing). You dont have to switch modes.

Answer:
Canon says, "The new white EOS Rebel SL1 Camera Kit is complemented by a matching white EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens and offers a stylish alternative for photographers who like to stand out from the crowd."

That being said, STM lens is essential for speed of focus and quietness. It's also important to choose the right settings and lighting for your shot. Regarding comparisons to camcorders; camcorders of course are made for video, but what most people don't understand is that they have much smaller capture areas than an SLR. So the images on an SLR can be (and with this one are) more accurate and detailed than most consumer camcorders. So for an all in 1 solution; you can't beat this camera. If this was helpful, please click yes! Thank you. see less

Answer:
If you get the kit with the 18-55 STM and the 55-250 STM Lenses, both are image stabilized, but as far as I can tell, the 75-300 lens does not have image stabilization. Image stabilization is very helpful and the 55-250 is a light and sharp lens.

Answer:
Every bundle is different. But I am guessing it includes what Canon sends with the camera,a camera, lens, battery and battery charger. Box would have warranty card, CD, and a micro USB cable.

But I am guessing it includes what Canon sends with the camera,a camera, lens, battery and battery charger. Box would have warranty card, CD, and a micro USB cable. Ritz could tell you if anything else is included. When I purchased my bundle I got it for the same price but got filters, a 55-250mm IS USM II lens, etc. A lot more for the money. Think what you will want in the future and look for that. If you want a telephoto I would suggest a 70-300mm IS USM. Search Amazon for Canon SL1 bundles. Good luck you will like the camera. see less

Big differences are Much improved video, Weight, Quality of photos, Options - The SL! is basically the identical camera to the T5i in a much smaller package - Basically the SL1 is 2 to 3 generations newer than the T3 - I had a T1i and When the T3 came out I did not upgrade as it offered few advantages over the T1i. I have the SL1 - Love it - a significant upgrade. see less
