Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review
The Canon T6s takes the Rebel series up a notch. With its 24.2 megapixels sensor, the Canon T6s shoots excellent images with tons of detail and accurate colors. The higher ISO performance is also magnificent despite, the higher resolution. The enthusiast DSLR also features a versatile autofocus system, plus improved Live View focusing features and more enthusiast-like controls.
Its straightforward functionality is ideal for an enthusiast DSLR shooter. It also brings more advanced features and performance from higher-end cameras. Therefore, it can satisfy more experienced photographer as well.
Canon Rebel T6s Design and Build
Just one glance at the Canon T6s is enough to set it apart from its predecessors. It’s on the top deck sits an LCD info panel. This enthusiast camera comes with this feature which had been reserved for Canon’s mid-range and professional cameras.
And on the back deck is another first for Canon Rebel T6s. The rear-panel four-way controller is replaced by Canon’s Control Dial interface. It is a beautiful commonality that will make it easier for the Rebel T6s to serve as a second body alongside a higher-end Canon model.
Canon Rebel T6s Viewfinder
The Canon T6s can automatically disable the LCD monitor when you bring the viewfinder to your eye. It is because this enthusiast camera comes fitted with proximity sensor located above the eyepiece. The Rebel T6s also sports a single-axis electronic level function. It gives you several live view and movie mode capabilities not found in its more affordable sibling.
Rebel T6s can adjust focus between frames in burst mode live view shooting. Use this to capture high dynamic range movies, and to digitally “zoom” movies during capture. You can also crop the sensor window from which the video feed assembles.
