The SL1 is a DSLR body with an APS-C sensor (crop factor 1.6) and an optical viewfinder. It is the smallest of the Digital Rebel series.I was reading about the SL1 and thinking I might take a look at it for hikes and climbs when I want small size but would still prefer a dslr.
You may be confusing it with the model M which is, in effect, a P&S body that takes removable lenses. It also uses an APS-C sensor but has no viewfinder. The M is smaller than the SL1 and appears to be lighter as well.
Both have 18MP sensors and can take Canon EF and EF-S lenses. (The model M requires an adapter.)
