Canon EOS Rebel T6i Review – Excellent Entry-Level Snapper

If you’re looking for a camera that can take better pictures than your smartphone, but don’t want to spend too much of your hard-earned cash, then perhaps you might want to check out the Canon EOS Rebel T6i. For its key features, you will be able to take advantage of an APS-C CMOS 24-megapixel imaging sensor, a 3.0-inch vari-angle touch capacitive screen that displays 1,040,000 dots, and the ability to shoot videos at 1080p. You might be disappointed by that last bit, hoping that you would be able to shoot at 4K resolution, but do take note this is an entry-level DSLR, and the images and videos shot with it do not disappoint, for its price category anyway.

Canon EOS Rebel T6i Review – Excellent Entry-Level Snapper

The Canon EOS Rebel T6i Would Want to Make You Upgrade From Your Smartphone Camera

Otherwise known as the Canon EOS 750D, the Canon EOS Rebel T6i is a step up from the Rebel T5i, or 700D, if you desire. With this newer iteration, it now comes with an expansion setting towards its ISO. Instead of capping out ISOs at 12,800, you will now be able to extend that further to ISO 25,600. For whatever reason you would want such a huge amount for the ISO is quite unnecessary, unless you’re going inside a tunnel or would want to use the DSLR as a night vision camera.

Moving forward, this time around, the EOS Rebel T6i sports both Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. With these, you would be able to connect it to a smartphone or tablet with just a simple tap. Furthermore, because of these new connection capabilities, should you want to immediately share the photos and videos you shoot to your social media accounts, now you can.

However, never doubt that this is an entry-level camera as there are bound to have some shortcomings that you will experience, especially if you compare it to other, higher-end DSLRs. To start, this particular Canon DSLR makes use of a 19-point auto-focusing system, which is pretty decent since this camera is targeted towards entry-level users. However, moving the auto-focus point is slower than others, and there are other similar DSLRs, even those under the Canon brand, that can perform better in this department.

But when it comes to image performance, the Canon EOS Rebel T6i does perform well in this regard. Images look nice, with just the right level of detail for its price class. However, when comparing it to other entry-level DSLRs, especially with one of Canon’s long-time rivals in the camera industry, Nikon and its D5500. Still, these shortcomings are a bit minute when looking at the larger picture (no pun intended). So if you can get by with these slight pitfalls, then you will still be able to make use of a pretty decent entry-level DSLR.
