Canon EOS Rebel T6 is a DSLR camera that has been tested in the market during the last years and it is considered as a very solid and good entry level option from the cannon EOS line. T6 is one of the cheapest available cameras of the market, without this meaning that it lacks a wide array of features that are essential and helpful even for photographers that want to invest in budget but high-quality choices. It has to be noted though, that its main selling point is the great value factor and not in any way an innovative design or interesting specifications.
Sensor & Imaging
The Canon EOS Rebel T6 features an 18.0 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor which can provide images up to 5184 × 3456 pixels and has an ISO sensitivity from 100 to 6400 (expandable to 12800), while using the relatively old but still decent DIGIC 4+ processor. These specifications might not be stellar in any way, but they can fulfill most of the needs of an amateur photographer, being only difficult to use in low-light situations, something though which can be a problem even with better and more expensive budget cameras. The camera also has decent video capabilities, being able to shoot up to full HD 1080p video at 30 fps, a quality that can satisfy amateur video recording needs or even some beginner vlogging, at a price which is hard to beat in the contemporary DSLR market. Complementing all these video & image features, the T6 DSLR has 9 AF points and can shoot up to 3fps continuously, thus fulfilling the most basic but important needs of a camera in terms of flexibility during different and dynamic situations.
Body, Ergonomics & Other features
The design of the Canon EOS Rebel T6 is one that follows the typical Canon look, being ergonomic and very easy to handle. This ergonomic design complemented by its relatively low weight (about 485g without a lens) results in a camera which is excellent for beginners with no previous DSLR experience, while it is also important to note that the menus and different modes of operation are extremely easy to use. As this camera uses the EF lens mount, it is easy to understand that the market support for used and new lenses is almost unparalleled, another good reason to choose this camera if you already have a canon one, or if you want to enjoy exactly this huge diversity of available lenses and equipment. Additionally, this camera has a built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, a feature which was absent in older Canon budget cameras and is truly useful in almost any situation. The battery life of this model is relatively medium, being able to shoot about 500 pictures before running out, which can satisfy most amateur photography needs, but can be a problem for those who want to shoot video sequences with this particular camera. This, combined with the absence of an articulated screen, can be an issue for those who want to use this camera for vlogging, as it can be a little problematic at times, but not in any case impossible for those who want to choose it due to the low cost and overall good image & video quality.
The Canon EOS Rebel T6 does exactly what it needs to: It offers a cheap but solid choice for a beginner photographer or a photographer who wants to have a model for everyday light use. It is not in almost any way innovative or truly powerful, but this is not the point of this particular DSLR. It is perfect as a tool which will fulfill basic needs but won’t break the bank even for those with the lowest available budget.
