Canon EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D / Kiss X8i)
|I own it||I want it||I had it|
For users looking to purchase their first DSLR camera, the EOS Rebel T6i (750D outside of the US) camera prioritizes affordability, without sacrificing basic SLR performance attributes like quick shutter response, and compatibility with Canon’s impressive line of interchangeable lenses and accessories.
It features a new 24MP CMOS sensor which features Canon's Hybrid CMOS AF III system for use in live view and movie recording. The sensor, along with a DIGIC 6 processor, offers an ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600). The autofocus system has 19 points, all of which are cross-type.
Photos can be composed via an optical viewfinder or a fully articulating 3" touchscreen LCD. The T6i can shoot continuously at 5 fps. Video can be recorded at 1080/30p with manual exposure control and an external mic jack. It, along with its cheaper sibling (T6i/750D) are also the first Rebels to have built-in Wi-Fi (with NFC as well).

The Rebel T6i brings resolution and low-light performance in line with its 2015 peers. The 19-point, all cross-type AF system is a welcome upgrade to the line, but is limited in its coverage and isn't good at following subjects moving around the frame. Live view shooting includes effective subject tracking, however lack of continuous AF limits the usefulness of live view shooting. The body is almost identical to previous Rebel models, offering a good shooting experience.
Good for: Those looking for an inexpensive, well-built body to pair with Canon glass. Users wanting to take more control of their camera.
Not so good for: Those wanting top-notch AF performance in viewfinder shooting of moving subjects. Those looking for extensive customization of camera buttons and functions.
