DSLR going small - Canon 100D

Canon is just about to announce the smallest DSLR camera (among Nikon and Canon) yet with. It still have a mirror. Lets take a look on how much smaller it is compared to other Nikon and Canon cameras and how it compares to the mirrorless cameras.

Before this announcement from Canon they were serious behind the cameras from Nikon. Nikon had the 5 top placement when it comes to sizes and being the smallest DSLR camera (W x H x D):
  • Nikon D3000 (126mm x 97mm x 64 mm)
  • Nikon D3100 (124mm x 96mm x 75mm)
  • Nikon D3200 (125mm x 96mm x 77mm)
  • Nikon D5100 (128mm x 97mm x 79mm)
  • Nikon D5200 (129mm x 98mm x 78mm)
  • Canon 1100D (130mm x 100mm x 78mm)
The new Canon goes into the first place with the dimension (117mm x 91mm x 69mm). So it is noticeable smaller than the cameras that it is up against, but still larger than the mirrorless cameras where the Canon EOS M has a dimension of (109mm x 67mm x 32mm).

In the weight department it is also the camera with less weight and again here it has a little bit more weight than the mirrorless cameras, but here the difference isn't as big when you look at the more advance mirrorles cameras like the Nikon 1 V2.

When going for the entry level market this is an important factor and I believe that it will sell a lot of cameras. The interesting part is if they are going to use it on other DSLR cameras.
