Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Camera Review

The most outstanding Rebel to date. That’s a term we use approximately once a year to make a point. For the first time, we truly mean it, and by a factor of two. In addition to a new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor (up from 18MP on the T5i and 700D), the Canon EOS Rebel T6i and T6s (known as the 750D and 760D outside of the United States) both cameras have an updated 7560 pixel RGB + infrared metering sensor for more precise exposure metering.

Despite the fact that both cameras are fairly similar, there are some significant variations between them, and each will receive its own assessment. You may learn more about the T6s by visiting this page.

Canon’s new Hybrid CMOS AF III employs sensor-based phase-detection points to improve the speed and accuracy of autofocus in live view shooting situations. In terms of performance, Canon believes that the Hybrid CMOS III should be comparable to that of the Dual Pixel AF system (found in the EOS 70D and 7D II).

Using the mirror as a stop, the Rebels T6i employs the same 19-point phase-detection AF system as the Canon 70D, which marks a significant advance over the 9-point AF system used by the Rebels T5. The ISO range stays the same as it did with its predecessor, ranging from 100 to 12800 and with an extendable range up to 25600.
