Hi - The AI.B feature does not seem to work with the SL3. Am I doing something wrong or the 470ex-ai does not support this feature with the SL3? Thanks.

This will answer your question. The SL3 is not supported.

I don't see the SL3 on that list, are you sure it is up to date? I also see that the SL2 *is* supported.
I also see that all the cameras have this note:
*3: Possible with the AI.B Full-auto distance measurement start button.
Could that be the OP's problem?

Thats helpful to note.
I grabbed this list from the 470's webpage. Not sure how current or up to date it was.

Take a look at the manual. That's the best place for solid information.
HERE is a shortcut to the manual.
Pages 46-47 talk about this specifically. If the camera (any EOS Digital Camera) was released after the second half of 2017, it's fully compatible with AI.B Full-Auto shooting. Otherwise, you'll have to use the Depth of Field Preview Button.
The SL3 was released in 2019, so you're good.
I hope that helps! You'll also find helpful information from within your My Canon Account at canon.us/account
