United Kingdom, 16 April 2014 – Canon today introduces a new white edition of the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR , the EOS 100D, as well as a new white version of its EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM zoom lens. Ideal for first time users looking to explore the world of DSLR photography, the new editions to the EOS range make it easy for anyone, whatever their skill level, to capture and relive special moments in stunning detail.

Measuring just 116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm, the EOS 100D is compact enough to always carry with you and features an 18 MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor and a range of simple controls and automatic shooting modes, making capturing stunning images and Full HD movies effortless. The incredibly lightweight and compact body provides a traditional DSLR shooting experience while the large 7.7cm (3.0”) ClearView II touch screen, makes it easy to adjust settings and review images straight after capture.

The white EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is the perfect partner for the new EOS 100D, providing the flexibility to capture everyday subjects from sweeping landscapes to close-up portraits. An Optical Image Stabilizer ensures images are captured with impressive detail and clarity, while the near-silent STM technology also ensures noise is kept to a minimum whilst focusing in movies.

This is news?  The 100D in white was released in Japan late last year (with a matching white 40/2.8, IIRC).

At least it is great to see Canon innovating.  Hopefully we'll follow the success of Pentax with an ever increasing range of colours.

White will reflect the sun rather than absorb it, keeping the camera and lens cool, so hot climates like ...  OOPS, Whats wrong here???

So now there's black and white.  Two more colors to go to tie the T3 color palette in number of options.

I would love a white SL1.  I'm really happy with mine.  It pretty much replaced my M.  Too late now though, not going to buy another body just for a different color.  Besides, if it is UK only, then oh well...

I love the look... but I can't help but imagine how dirty those rubber grip areas will look in very short order.

If it was a attached to a 70-200 f2.8L does it make it a pro body? LOL

Looks good, I agree with the comment about the grip.

If anyone has a 100d attached to a 70-200, please post it! Also mention how it feels with that lens on..

By the first month of use, at least by me, that camera will be off white, then bone white, then crusty creme, then sandy brown, then dirt brown, then burnt sienna brown, then marbled black, then pretty much the color I have now, minus a few buttons.. so whats the point!?!?!   ;D

Past 2 years of Canon innovations press releases of powershots, Rebels, and stm kit lens innovations.

I thought the smart phone market was creeping into powershot margins, why bother with the powershot segment anymore?

Well cheers to another Q1 year of nothing but announcements of lenses and bodies from other camera brands.
