The Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D is an entry-level DSLR that is aimed at those who have never used an ILC before and smartphone users who are looking to upgrade. In addition to having a quicker CPU than its predecessor, the Rebel T5, the T6 features an APS-C sensor with 18 megapixels, Wi-Fi connectivity with near-field communication (NFC), and a body that is built around the APS-C sensor.
The Nikon D3300, which was released in January 2014 and is getting a little bit on in age at this time, is its primary rival in this particular category.

As is customary for Rebel, the T6 incorporates some technology that was taken from higher-end versions of the previous generation. This is not a negative development in any way. It features an autofocus mechanism with 9 points, video recording at 1080/30p, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC. It has a very decent battery life of 500 shots per charge, which places it towards the top of its class when considering this metric. However, one of the most eye-catching aspects of the T6 is not located anywhere within the camera itself; rather, it is printed on the exterior of the packaging: the camera’s delectable $500 price tag, which includes the lens.
The Rebel line has usually been most successful at providing technology that has been passed down from previous generations at a price that is relatively fair. The first Digital Rebel was released just about 13 years ago, and it was effectively a single-dial 10D housed in a plastic chassis. It had a price tag of $1,000 with the kit lens included, which was a groundbreaking amount for DSLRs at the time. The T6 is not only more affordable than the pioneering Rebel, but it also has a far wider range of capabilities and is more suited to the requirements of a novice.
In a nutshell, in order to produce the Rebel T6, Canon repurposed a number of components that it had sitting around from previous generations of the Rebel line and packaged them up in an attractively priced bundle.

The resolution and low-light performance of the Rebel T6s is comparable to those of its competitors from 2015. The 19-point, all cross-type autofocus system is a nice update to the line, but it has a restricted coverage area and isn’t very adept at following subjects as they move across the frame. The powerful live view autofocus, on the other hand, can partly make up for these inadequacies. The completely articulating LCD, twin dials, and top LCD all contribute to the outstanding handling of the device.
