1 - Canon EOS 100D 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm STM Lens Kit
Canon EOS 100D 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm STM Lens Kit
$590.00
It is one of the most compact DSLR camera there is and we like its light weight (409 g/0.9 pounds), its design which includes a rubberised handgrip, its good reactivity as well as the image quality up to 1600 ISO.
On the other hand the lenses are not as compact as they should be and you can see noise starting at 3200ISO. It is also the same price at the Canon Canon EOS 700D
