Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR
Canon’s immensely popular Rebel line has successfully served the needs of entry-level DSLR buyers for years, and with its latest iteration brings some changes. Canon has opted to split the Rebel line into two different models, the EOS Rebel T6i and the EOS Rebel T6s. These two cameras are very similar to each other, both sharing the same internal components. However, the slightly more expensive T6s has been designed to appeal to a more advanced photographer.
Both cameras use an updated version of Canon’s 24-megapixel Hybrid CMOS sensor, along with an upgrade to their Digic 6 processor, allowing for all the latest features and processing power. The Rebel cameras now have an autofocus system more similar to that of the original 7D, and an updated light-metering system for better exposure.
The primary differences between the two cameras are seen in the addition of a secondary LCD screen for the T6s, a Quick Control dial around the navigation buttons, and an electronic level display. More advanced photographers will generally want to spend the little bit more for the T6s to gain the Quick Control dial.
Both cameras feature an articulating screen, as well as built-in WiFi and near field communications (NFC) capability. As to be expected, both cameras produce identical results with excellent image quality even in more challenging shooting conditions. Overall, the T6i and T6s both offer a big update over the previous T5i but it has made some ergonomic sacrifices; it’s generally worth spending a little more on the T6s if you can.
