The body of DSLR camera usually has a fairly big and heavy, even the last generation DSLR that has small and light body still quite big in size. And the solution is mirrorless camera that are much smaller as EOS M. But unfortunately it doesn’t has all DSLR camera features and of course it can not be found on mirrorless camera. Canon knows about this gap and finally deliver new products of camera with smaller and lighter body, it’s called Canon EOS 100D or the Canon Rebel SL1 (SL means super lightweight).
