Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review

Providing far greater Control than prior versions, the EOS Rebel T6s DSLR Camera from Canon is the first in its class to include a top LCD screen, a Quick Control dial, and a horizontal level, which provides a significant improvement over previous models.

This Camera also incorporates a high-resolution 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 6 Image Processor into a small and lightweight body, allowing users to capture images in a variety of lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to dim indoor settings, thanks to ISO performance of up to 12,800, which can be increased to 25,600.

Canon EOS Rebel T6s Digital SLR (Body Only) - Wi-Fi Enabled

Last update was on: April 13, 2024 10:54 am

Wireless picture and video sharing to social networks and cloud storage are made possible by the APS-C Camera’s integrated Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities, which can be accessed through the Camera Connect smartphone application. In addition, NFC allows for quick connection to mobile devices and the CS100 Connect Station, which is a great feature.

Build and handling

Although they are almost identical cameras on the inside, the 750D and 760D have a few minor differences in appearance. A secondary (monochrome) LCD screen on the top plate of the 760D is the most visible distinction between the two cameras.

This displays vital information such as the ISO (sensitivity) setting, the battery level, the exposure level, the shutter speed, and the camera’s aperture. It appears to be less significant with a camera with a vari-angle screen, but it is more helpful and consumes less power than the primary display.

It’s worth noting that the 760D is somewhat taller than the 750D and that the lens is in a different position from the tripod bush. We discovered this after changing between the two cameras on a tripod and found that the lens was in an other place than the tripod bush.

Even though compact system cameras have changed our impression of camera size, the 760D is still a tiny SLR. Although its deep grip is pleasant, when my forefinger is on the shutter release, there is enough room to fit my remaining three fingers on the Camera’s other three buttons. Those with more significant digits may discover that their little finger gets caught between the camera body and the lens.


Some potential purchasers have been attracted to Nikon’s new SLRs by the 24Mp sensors found in their recent SLRs, even though Canon has been employing an 18-million-pixel sensor for what seems like an eternity in its APS-C format SLRs. One of the benefits of having more pixels is that you can capture greater fine detail, at least in principle. The drawback is that there is a greater likelihood of noise being generated.

However, with the Canon 760D and 750D, Canon has done an excellent job of balancing the two. Both cameras can resolve a high degree of information, which is a significant improvement over the 18Mp sensor used by the 700D.

In addition, noise is effectively managed, although it’s worth noting that the 760D’s resolving capability is not nearly as impressive as that of the Nikon D5500, which has a 24MP sensor. Howeverit is also a close contender in terms of resolution, with the 20Mp Pentax K-S2 being a close second — and, like the D5500, it is undoubtedly helped by the lack of an anti-aliasing filter covering the sensor.

Structure and Specifications

The Canon EOS Rebel T6s is not the most miniature single-lens reflex camera (SLR) that Canon offers, but its dimensions are comparable to those of other cameras in its class. It measures four by 5.2 by 3.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.2 pounds without a lens attached.

It is slightly larger than its closest competition, the Nikon D5500 (3.9 by 4.9 by 3 inches, 1.1 pounds), but the T6s are a little bit more pleasant to grip and use because of the additional surface area. Consider getting a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera or the EOS Rebel SL1 if you want a really compact single-lens reflex camera (it measures 3.6 by 4.6 by 2.7 inches and weighs 14.4 ounces).

Performance and Image Quality

Compared to the Nikon D5500, which can start shooting and produce an image that is in focus in 0.2 seconds, the time it takes the T6s to begin shooting and capture an image that is in direction is quite a bit longer.

However, its continuous shooting rate is the same as the D5500 at five frames per second. Therefore, if you are capturing images in Raw or Raw+JPG, you can only take a maximum of six photos before the shooting rate begins to slow. However, if you are using a fast memory card, such as the SanDisk 95MBps card that we use to test the speed of digital cameras, you can shoot JPGs continuously.

The only Camera in this price range that is noticeably faster is the Pentax K-3, which shoots at 8.3 frames per second. However, the price of the K-3 was drastically reduced after its replacement was released, which is why it is now available in this price range.

Sensors with 24 million pixels have become more popular, and for a good reason: they create a pleasing compromise between picture size and file size and clarity and noise, among other things. However, due to increasing the resolution to 36 million pixels, data tend to fill up memory cards and hard drives a bit too rapidly, putting additional load on computer processing engines.

Because of the necessity to keep noise levels under acceptable bounds, full-frame cameras such as the Sony A7R and Nikon D810 are the only cameras available with 36Mp sensors at the time of writing. However, Samsung currently holds the record for the highest pixel count in the APS-C format with its NX1 and NX500 cameras, which use the same 28-megapixel back-illuminated sensor as the NX1.

Unlike Nikon, which used an anti-aliasing filter on the D5500, and Pentax, which used an anti-aliasing filter on the K-S2, Canon used an anti-aliasing filter on the 760D. For the most part, this allows the D5500 to collect somewhat more information than the K-S2, while the K-S2 can resolve almost as much detail as the 760D in most situations. Nonetheless, the 760D represents a significant improvement over the 700D in this aspect, with more information appearing crisp and realistic, particularly in raw files.

When it comes to the company’s first 24Mp sensor, Canon has offered photographers several options: it’s available in the EOS M3, the company’s small system camera (CSC), as well as the 750D and 760D, which are both DSLRs. Despite being slightly more expensive than the 750D, the 760D provides several handling advantages over the latter, including a secondary LCD screen on the top plate, a Quick Control dial around the navigation buttons, an electronic level, and a lock on the Mode dial, as well as a different control arrangement.
