"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending March 23rd, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Thursday, Canon announced the EOS Rebel SL1 and T5i DSLR cameras, the EF-S 18-55mm IS STM lens and the PowerShot SX280 HS and SX270 HS digital cameras.
 
Arguably, Canon’s biggest announcement was the Rebel SL1, the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR camera. The new camera weighs less than a pound yet features an 18 megapixel sensor, 3” LCD touchscreen, 9 point center-cross point AF system, a 4 frames per second burst rate, and continuous autofocus in movie recording.
 
The T5i seems to be an incremental update over its predecessor with new features such as an updated exterior finish, 360 degree mode dial, digital zooming during movie recording, and lighter weight. The biggest update, however, comes in the form of a new kit lens, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. The introduction of Canon’s third STM lens should prove popular for those using their DSLR cameras for video recording.
 
And lastly, Canon’s announcement of the PowerShot SX280 HS and SX270 HS digital cameras brought a small surprise – the introduction of [Canon’s] new DIGIC 6 image processor. According to Canon, the new DIGIC 6 processor allows for even greater image quality in low light conditions and the encoding of MP4 movie files during video recording.
 
Along with the DIGIC 6 image processor, the new PowerShot cameras feature a 25mm lens with 20x zoom, full HD video recording, manual, AV and TV modes, an intelligent IS system, and in the SX280’s case, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS.
 
In other news, Adobe announced on Wednesday that their Creative Cloud subscriber base had hit half a million subscribers in less than a year. Free and trial memberships exceed 2 million over the same period.
 
On Thursday, Nikon announced the establishment of a manufacturing facility in Laos to reinforce its digital SLR camera manufacturing organization and reduce costs. The new facility is scheduled to commence production in October 2013 and employ 800 people.
 
In reviews...
 
On Saturday, Bryan added a camera size comparison tool to the website. Now visitors can compare the size difference for cameras from the top, back or side views.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Friday, we posted a deal where you could get a Refurbished Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera from Adorama for only $599.00. That’s a $150.00 savings off the price of a new item.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"

Canon camera size/product image comparison pages are now available from the Camera and Lens Comparison Tools page.
 
These are the same comparisons you have seen in the Canon Camera Reviews. There are now so many Canon DSLR cameras that the load time for these review pages with all cameras included was getting too long. I will still include these comparisons in the reviews, but will show only a small subset of the cameras.
 
The Rebel T5i / 700D and Rebel SL1 / 100D images are included. Check out the size difference between these bodies.
