Canon EOS Rebel T6s/T6i First Impressions updated with shooting experience

We'd expect image quality from Canon's EOS Rebel T6s and T6i (760D and 750D) to be very similar, and so far the 24.2MP APS-C DSLRs haven't surprised us in our studio tests. The real differences between these two models is in the user experience, as the T6s provides advanced touches like a top-panel LCD and rear quick control dial for easier access to exposure settings. We delve into what it's like using each of these cameras in our shooting experience. Read more

Canon EOS Rebel T6s/T6i added to studio test scene comparison

The Canon EOS Rebel T6s and T6i (760D and 750D) have been in our hands long enough to put together a couple of real-world sample galleries, and now we've added the cameras to our studio test scene comparison tool. The new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that these cameras share represents a step forward for Canon's Rebel lineup, which had been using an 18MP chip since the T2i. Read more

Canon EOS Rebel T6s/T6i real-world sample galleries posted

Canon announced the EOS Rebel T6s and T6i (760D/750D) near-twins in February, and they've garnered plenty of attention since then. They share the same 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, 19-point AF system, and a new 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor, while their differences are mainly in the user experience. With a couple of final-production models we headed into the great outdoors with them. See galleries

These cameras will be repaired free of charge and models that have already been repaired will have a marking inside the battery door. Read more

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS real-world sample gallery posted

Canon's flagship superzoom is its PowerShot SX60 HS, which sports a 21-1365mm equivalent lens - not quite Coolpix P900 territory but still very impressive. It also features a fully articulating LCD, Wi-Fi with NFC, and 1080/60p video. We've spent some time shooting with the SX60 and have put together a gallery of rusting trucks, sunsets, snowy owls and even snowier mountains. See gallery

Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison

Ever since Canon announced its 50MP EOS 5DS R, we've been eager to get it into our studio and in front of our test scene. The wait is over and the 5DS R has been added to our studio scene comparison tool alongside the likes of the Nikon D810 and Pentax 645Z. Read more

LensRentals reports Canon EOS Rebel T6s and T6i sensor issue

LensRentals received its first Canon EOS Rebel T6s/760D and T6i/750D units and has identified a sensor problem with a number of those cameras. Out of about 20 units (around 10 of each model), 4 T6s and 2 T6i units contained sensors with noticeable defects in their sensor stacks. These layers of glass on top of the sensor contain a pattern of dust-like spots or particles that are visible when studied under angled light. Read more

Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal

Today Canon released the XC10, a camera that for all practical purposes is equal part a stills and a video camera. It promises to deliver not only both types of media, but an appropriate user experience for either type of shooting. It may be the first true 'convergence' camera. Learn more about this camera and why it's a significant milestone of technology. Read more

Canon XC10: What you need to know

Canon's new XC10 is the first product we've seen which is neither a stills camera with a video feature or a video camera that can capture stills. In terms of both specification and ergonomics it is a true 'convergence' product with the potential to shake up more than one market segment. We've been poring over the specifications for a while now - here's what you need to know
