Deal: Canon EOS Rebel SL1 $369
« on: December 27, 2013, 08:03:09 AM »

Amazon.com is once again selling the tiny DSLR from Canon for $369. The SL1 in my opinion, is the best Rebel currently available. ¬†There’s no word on how long the sale will last.

This seems like such a great price given I paid more for just an external flash.  For those that have added this body as a second body (for travel, etc.), how often have you actually used it?  I am tempted to get one of these for fun, but I'm afraid it will just sit at home much like my 40mm pancake does. 

I would love to have a lighter and smaller set-up but I find with my pancake, I never use when it comes time to leaving the house, I just grab a camera bag which is already a certain size and the weight difference doesn't make a big difference to me.

I ordered mine and should be getting it next week. I don't know how much I would use it... but it's basically just a backup body in case anything happens to my 5D3. I also just got the 40mm pancake and was thinking with the small size, I could always leave the SL1 with the 40mm in my car so I will always have a camera at all times no matter where I go.
I generally never take my full bag of gear out unless I have a shoot scheduled. With this small setup I can always have an SLR ready.

I posted this on the previous thread and the deal still seems to be available:

Read on Slickdeals and saw Adorama is also offering the same price PLUS 2 additional accessories: a 16GB Lexar SD card and Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW.
Direct link: http://www.adorama.com/ICASL1.html
Note: It does show as $449 on the product page, but when you add to cart and then check out, it'll show the $369 price.
They offer free shipping and depending on where you're shipping to, no tax. I'm in California where Amazon now charges taxes but Adorama doesn't.

I do the same with my T2i (purchased used for $300 with 15K clicks).  It's a backup/2nd camera/car camera for my 5D3, and the 40mm is the default lens for it.  I also keep a really old 35-70mm cheapo canon zoom in the car just in case, and a 3rd party manual flash.  Having an APS-C camera complements a FF camera well, especially on the tele end.  Or sometimes when i'm shooting events and stick my 17-40mm on the crop camera with a flash and use it for f/8 ISO400 group shots and a prime tele or 70-200 for candids on the 5D.
