It comes with a new 60-megapixel (MP) backside illumination (BSI) CMOS full-frame sensor featuring Triple Resolution Technology. This enables it to capture raw photos in DNG or JPEG format, in resolutions of 60, 36, or 18 MP with the full sensor surface utilised.

Another big addition is the inclusion of phase detection autofocusing (PDAF). Combined with depth mapping and contrast recognition, the SL3 is said to be able to capture razor-sharp pictures even in low lighting conditions. Furthermore, it comes with intelligent subject recognition so your human subjects stay in focus even in dynamic scenes.

To compose your photos, you can use its bright and high-resolution electronic viewfinder with up to 120 frames per second and a resolution of 5.76 million pixels. Or you can use its tiltable 3.2-inch high-res touchscreen display for creative angles and shooting videos. Not to mention, with SL3, you are able to record videos of up to 8K, supported by efficient codecs such as H.265 and ProRes by Apple.

All these goodies are securely protected in a solid all-metal body adorned with elegant leather. Plus, the SL3 offers great handling, improved ergonomics, and IP54 certification for capturing any shots in any environment.
