Comparing the New Canon Rebel T6i and T6s

Share

The Rebel Series from Canon has been one of the most successful in DSLR photography. Economically priced and feature packed, these cameras appeal to demanding entry-level, as well as seasoned DSLR owners. This year, introduced at the CP Plus Expo, the new 24-megapixel Rebel T6i and T6s keep up tradition.

While the main topic of discussion on one side of the Canon booth centered on the merits and pitfalls of the anti-alias canceling filter in the Canon 5DS R, the main topic of comparison between the two Rebel T6 cameras was more fundamental. In a new turn for the Rebel line, there is now a camera model that will be aimed at photographers who want to shoot with more manual control.

While the T6i maintains the same interface Rebels have always come with, namely, a single adjustment wheel in front for your index finger, the T6s will be the first Rebel to also have a scroll dial on the back. The T6s has an information display on top of the camera, for the first time in a Rebel camera. The screen has a backlight button, just like the larger Canon DSLRs, and gives you constant information on your camera settings. These two features set the T6s apart from the T6i, the image sensor and processor is the same for both.

This year, Canon has given Rebel users a choice of a camera that is still as compact and small in the hand as the Rebels have always been, but adds valuable convenience for those who like to change the variables of shutter speed and aperture, and have them literally both at your finger tips, and your settings just a glance away.
