Canon’s Updating Its Rebel Line with the T6i and T6s


Canon finally has two new rebels on the horizon: the T6i and T6s. Both have a 24.2 MP CMOS APS-C sensor and built-in Wi-Fi, a first for Canon’s Rebels (and hopefully better integrated than the 70D). Canon’s going for two audiences with the T6i and T6s. The T6i is aimed at the beginner on a budget, whereas the T6s, the new Rebel flagship, is aimed at the enthusiast who wants a bit more out of their camera.

Both come with an ISO range of 100-12800, and they both have 19 autofocus points, which’ll give users a substantial degree of latitude when focusing. They also have a vari-angle touch screen LCD with 1.04 million dots. This’ll make for easier menu navigation. The T6i and T6s have a new feature known as color tone detection, which adjusts metering and autofocus to make sure people are sharp and properly exposed. They also have full HD video capture, but the T6s has the edge here with manual exposure control, digital zoom and a stereo microphone jack, making it an ideal choice for video students.

The T6s also outpaces the T6i with a top LCD panel, a horizontal level, Servo AF in live view (which makes tracking moving subjects in burst mode a breeze) and HDR movie functionality.

The T6i will arrive in April 2015 for $749.00 body only. It’ll go for $899.00 with the 18-55mm STM kit lens and for $1,099.00 with the 18-135mm STM kit lens.
