After the Epic 5DS, Canon Brings Out the T6i
The Rebel series of Canon is perhaps one of the best tools for a budding photographer. This affordable camera family provides the same specs as the higher end 7D cameras but come at an affordable price tag. Canon understands the volume of sales in the segment and puts active efforts into updating these mid-range DSLRs. Now the company has unveiled the new Rebel T6i and Rebel T6s to take on the market.
This time around Canon seems to have given some thought into their product. The last offering known as the T5i (Canon 700D) was just a nominal improvement over its predecessor T4i (Canon 650D). Canon T6i gets 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sensor with 19-point autofocus. It offers an ISO range of 100-12800 which is expandable up to 25600. The camera shoots continuously at 5 frames per second (fps) which is great for shooting action shots.
The 3 inch swivel display also returns to this device that comes handy while shooting videos. Like the Rebel models before it, the T6i allows you to shoot 1080p videos at 30 fps.
The second launch from Canon is the T6s that offers a few additional features over the T6i. The T6s lets users shoot HDR video and also offers a built-in electronic level meter. The unique bit added to the T6s is the LCD data panel on the top. This feature till now was only available with the models above the 60D.
The T6i is priced at $749.99 for the body-only, $899.99 with an EF-S 18-55mm STM lens and $1,099 with an EF-S 18-135mm STM lens. The T6s will cost $849.99 the body-only and $1199 with an EF-S 18-135mm STM lens. The cameras are expected to arrive in the market by the end of April.
