fuxicek: They should have called it Canon Recycler, not Rebel, for this money you can buy 3 years old Canon 700d/T5i, which is much better camera - Digic 5 processor, slightly bigger vf (0.85 vs 0.8x magnification), more powerful flash, stereo microphone, fully articulated touchscreen, higher maximum ISO, on the other hand a little bit worse battery life (440 vs 500), higher weight (580g vs 485) and no "Food Mode" (the greatest and only inovation in T6/1300:D
and higher continuous drive - 5fps vs 3fps...

This will be my camera... In two years, when the price drops under 500 euro :-)
Samsung made truly remarkable camera, the downside is, the future of the system is uncertain.. if Samsung is not commited to making accesories, Id like to see truly revolutionary camera, which would accept all aps-c lenses (Canon,Nikon,Sony,Fuji)without any adapter but it's probably impossible to do...
Everything is great, just there is one thing (or two actually), that didn't improve since 2003, when first digital Rebel was introduced (and it's a pity, because it's important photographic tool):
1.Viewfinder coverage Canon Digital Rebel/300D: 95% Canon Rebel T6s/760D: 95%
2.Viewfinder magnification Canon Digital Rebel/300D: 0.88x Canon Rebel T6s/760D: 0.82x
Great article, very informative, thank you. Now I know, why my computer crashed at least 20x when I tried to edit full HD video .. Because it´s cra:p .. And I have to stick with VGA videos, life is brutal...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYmXfYrH6Sw
I wish Canon SL1/100D succesor got rid of OVF and placed the EVF to the left corner, added fully articulated display, the body could be a little bit thinner, but with substantial grip, finally implemented some automatic panorama mode, multi-exposure would be nice (like on my old Canon film SLR), slow motion movies, electronic shutter, eye AF like Sony, live bulb mode like Olympus, ability to take pictures while making video and 4k photo mode like Panasonic and price it around 600 €/USD.... Then, dear Canon, you would deserve to keep name "Rebel" for your products... ;-)
pst.. I´m sure it would sell like doughnuts
So, if I patented cylinder, I could sue all toilet paper and steam roller manufactures? .. I wonder, what geometrical shapes are still available to put patent on? :D
GX5 looks like perfect compact camera.. I just wonder, when Canon engineers learn how to implement some easy panorama feature? 2025? Never? :D
too late, I´ve already downloaded holga filter for my smartphone camera
I wish the successor to canon 100d/sl1 would be more more rebellious, with evf, rangefinder style and with some automatic panorama mode..
One thing, I don't like about DSLRs and DSLR like cameras is, that you have to press your nose on the screen, while watching into viewfinder, how is it here?
who needs so many megapixels?.... I used to have Fujifilm F70EXR, 10 mpix camera and there was some mode for shooting 5 mpix only and when I compared original 10mpix picture and the 5mpix resized to 10mpix, viewing it at 1600 percent magnification, the resized photo looked much better.. I never went back to 10 mpix :)
sorry for my (cz)english ;)
nice camera, but the price is similar to sony a6000, whaaat?.... dear canon, for next generation, g8X?, g7XX?, please add some automatic panorama feature, evf viewfinder, slow motion mode, better battery life and digital level gauge... I know, you can do it ;)
Why still no panorama mode?
hmm, except zoom not much improvement to my canon sx150... 1 fps continuous shooting is painfully slow(0.8 fps in sx150), however in low-light mode and 2mpix resolution my canon can take 2.4 fps, which is ok for gifs http://s1370.photobucket.com/user/fuxiczech/media/brucedvere_zps375514c2.gif.html ...the camera doesnt excite, but it has some fun filters, I like especially the miniature movie mode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7f7mZRlIgM&list=UUwUuqhc8BAytP3EqBX4Mhsw
why is white plastic $150 more expensive than the black one?
I played with the Sony A3000 in the store... Its very light, comfortable to hold and when I looked into viewfinder, I told myself "Its not that bad as everyone says, I could live with that" ...then I looked into Sony A58 viewfinder and realized, what a crap the A3000´s finder actually is... :D
such a non-exciting camera...
