Canon EOS Rebel T6i Price in US

The most powerful Rebel up to this point. This is a sentence that we utter on average once every twelve months. This time, we truly mean it, and by a factor that is twice as large as the last time. The Canon EOS Rebel T6i, as well as its companion, the T6s (known as the 750D and 760D outside of the US), both feature a new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor (up from 18MP on the T5i / 700D), which is coupled with a new 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor for more accurate metering. Both of these cameras are known as the 750D and 760D outside of the US. Despite the fact that the two cameras are quite comparable to one another, there are a few key distinctions between the two that warrant separate evaluations. You may learn more about the T6s by reading this article.

The newly developed Hybrid CMOS AF III from Canon makes use of sensor-based phase detection points to improve the speed and accuracy of focusing while in live view. The performance of Canon’s Hybrid CMOS III, according to the company, should be comparable to that of the Dual Pixel AF (found in the EOS 70D and 7D II).

When the camera’s mirror is folded down, the Rebel T6i utilizes the same 19-point phase detection AF as the Canon 70D. This is a significant upgrade from the T5i, which only had a 9-point AF system available. The ISO range may be expanded all the way up to 25600, but otherwise stays the same as its predecessor at 100-12800.

Other improvements include built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, which is a first for the EOS DSLRs range, as well as Flicker detection, which was initially introduced in the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and now makes its way into both of these models. Both of these features were previously only available in the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

Additionally, the camera maintains some features that were included in the Rebel T5i, such as a fully articulating 3″ touchscreen LCD, 5 fps continuous shooting, and 1080/30p video recording.

The resolution and low-light capabilities of the Rebel T6i are comparable to those of its competitors from 2015. Although the 19-point, all cross-type AF system is a great update to the line, it is restricted in its coverage and is not very adept at following subjects that are moving across the frame. The ability to effectively follow a subject is included in live view shooting; nevertheless, the absence of continuous AF restricts the functionality of live view photography. Because the body is essentially identical to that of earlier Rebel models, the overall shooting experience is improved.

Cons
  • It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to focus in live vision on moving subjects.
  • Coverage of the autofocus points across the frame is limited and of a poor density.
  • Compared to other cameras, the viewfinder shooting has a lower level of topic tracking sophistication.
  • The dynamic range is not yet at the same level as the class leaders.
  • Simple Auto-ISO functionality with no exposure compensation available in M mode
  • There is no access to the AF point selection directly.
  • Comparatively poor battery life as compared to other DSLR competitors
  • No AF microadjustment
