Canon made an interesting approach when it introduced the Rebel T6i in its consumer-friendly Rebel DSLR family. The EOS Rebel T6i comes with imaging and performance standpoint. But the T6i comes in at a low price-point and makes some ergonomic sacrifices to do so. It is a solid performer, and certainly a big update over the aging Rebel T5i.
Canon T6i Duild and Handling
The Rebel T6i has dimensions 4 by 5.2 by 3.1 inches and weighs 1.2 pounds without a lens. The Rebel T6i puts its mode dial and power switch on the right side of the top plate. It omits the lock that prevents it from accidentally turning. Its placement makes the top plate a bit more busy than that of the.
The entry level DSLR makes the three top control buttons a little less comfortable to access. These adjust the active focus area, ISO, and toggle the rear LCD.
Viewfinder on Canon T6i
The display button isn’t present on the Rebel T6s, unlike the Rebel T6i. It uses an eye sensor to automatically disable the rear LCD when you bring the camera up to your eye. You will have to do that manually on the Rebel T6i. Or you will have to deal with the light from the LCD shining in your eye as you frame a shot.
The Canon RebelT6i does automatically dim the rear display when you press the shutter button. It enables activation of the autofocus system. It is a huge plus to beginner photographers.
Canon T6i Image Quality
A significant change in controls on the Canon Rebel T6i is the lack of a rear control dial. In the past that has been a feature reserved for more expensive Canon cameras, but the Rebel T6s has one as well. You use this to adjust the aperture when shooting in full manual mode. It also works well in exposure compensation in other ways.
The Rebel T6i requires you to hold a button to the rear of the camera. You then have to turn the control dial on the top plate at the same time. It will help make necessary adjustments. Aside from that, the best beginner camera handles equally well. It has a user-friendly menu system, Wi-Fi functionality, and vari-angle touch-screen LCD.
