When it comes to entry-level DSLR cameras, Canon has made a very good achievement for the past few years. The Rebels are very popular throughout the years and yet, another Rebel has appeared.
The Canon EOS Rebel T6i features many noticeable improvements from its Canon T5i predecessor. From the much-improved LCD Screen when you’re in Live Mode and its very fast performance in Viewfinder Mode, you’re going to mistake it for an advanced DLSR Camera.
Its image quality has much improved since the T5i, which is a very good achievement on the company’s part. It also provides options to shoot images in RAW, JPEG and RAW+JPEG formats, making it very versatile. Its APS-C image sensor greatly helps in strengthening the T6i’s low light performance, whether you to choose to increase the ISO setting or just using the built-in flash. Adding to these is its 19 autofocus points, which is ten points higher than the T5i’s autofocus feature.
The only known disadvantage so far, is its battery performance, which is somehow below average. Its Wi-Fi and NFC Connectivity feature is not-so-handy, unless you’re the type who often shares camera images in your phone. However, aside from its noticeable over-all improvement since the T5i, it also compares pretty well against its rival cameras in sub-$1000 price point category.
