Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR
For gorgeous, high-quality photos and videos that are easy to share, look to the Canon EOS Rebel T6i Camera with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens
The EOS Rebel T6i does more, easier, making capturing photos and shooting videos a breeze. An updated light-metering system means well-exposed images.
HD videos are effortless with the EOS Rebel T6i’s advanced AF that provides speedy and precise focus on subjects.
A first ever for the EOS Rebel line, built-in Wi-Fi and NFC are now available! Wireless connectivity provides a seamless way to exchange images and movies with compatible devices. It’s easier and more convenient than ever to share movies and photos, no matter the location. Near Field Communication (NFC) allows for easy pairing with compatible
Android devices and Canon’s new Connect Station CS100 device! With fast performance in a number of shooting environments, the EOS Rebel T6i does the hard work, letting you focus on making gorgeous photos and HD movies.
Reasons to buy
- Solid sensor: Canon’s new 24MP CMOS sensor produces very good image quality, with resolution and low light performance similar to its peers.
- Rotating touchscreen LCD: The Rebel’s 3″ 1.04 million dot LCD display can flip to the side and rotate 270 degrees, which is great for video recording. The touch features allow for easy focusing and photo review.
- Wi-Fi with NFC: Sharing photos via your smartphone takes just a ‘tap’. Photos and movies can be tagged for sharing to social media sites right on the camera.
Things to consider
- Fewer AF points with limited frame coverage: Although the 19-point AF system is an upgrade over previous Rebels, total number of points and frame coverage suffer relative to immediate peers.
- Trouble with movement: Whether shooting with the viewfinder or LCD, the T6i struggles to track moving subjects.
- No direct access to autofocus point selection: When shooting through the viewfinder, there’s no direct access to AF point selection. You have to first press a dedicated button, then use the dial or 4-way controller.
- Weak battery: The Rebel’s battery life number of 440 shots per charge is nearly half that of its closest DSLR competitor.
- Contrast Detect (sensor)
- Phase Detect
- Selective single-point
- Face Detection
- Live View
(+)Far better than my previous T5i

SLR virgins first "Real" Camera
219 people found this helpful.
I figure i would write a review for this camera considering there isn’t very many. Unfortunately i am very new to photography and this is my first real camera. So far in the 3 days ive owned it i have taken some pretty amazing photos (well they are amazing to me). The camera seems solid and doesn’t feel like its going to break. The grip feels nice in my hand and the buttons and menu are easy to navigate. I’m not electronically handicapped so i have been able to figure out the menus maybe faster than the average person. If you are looking for a good entry level dslr camera i would recommend this one. Any questions feel free to ask i will try to answer them! I also bought a Canon EF-S 50-250mm lens so i could have a little better zoom for birds and other wildlife. My next goal for a lens i think will be a 600mm cause i want to be able to take nice photos of wildlife! Enough rambling thanks for reading!
YouTube and Photography MUST! Canon EOS Rebel T6i Video Creator Kit

This is a great camera! What sold me? The option for great video and photography combined, especially for anyone just starting out. Are there better or more expensive options? Of course, but I always say the photgorapher and the lens make all the difference. The T6i definitely holds up to higher end cameras. I have other cameras including mirrorless but I think this will be my new “go-to”. I am using this for YouTube videos as well as photography. I do portrait and a ton of walk around style photography. I love the 19 point Autofocus and 24.2 mega pixels is absolutely amazing. This is just awesome for any YouTubers out there that are wanting your videos to start standing out from the rest of the crowd. The flip-out touch screen is perfect for self recording. You can record in full HD 1080p at 30fps and you can even record at 60fps in 720! The battery will only you go about 30 minutes so I would recommend a spare or better yet the A/C adapter. The Rode video mic will definitely improve the sound quality of your videos as well. The camera works with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses so your potential is unlimited. I think it works great with vlogging even with the kit lens. I do suggest something like a gorilla pod for that though. Once you get to know your camera and settings you will probably want to upgrade your lenses but believe me I have taken some great video and stunning photos with the kit 18-55mm lens.
Perfect all around camera for any enthusiast!

The Canon Rebel T6i is a great camera, one of my top 3 favorite cameras. For the price, there isn’t a camera that can currently beat it. I recommend this camera to any amateur photographer that wants to take great pictures, or anyone starting out that can see themselves taking photography more seriously a few years down the road and “upgrading” to full frame.

I am not a very tech savvy person. I think for a beginner getting into camera this has been amazing. The quality is so crisp and it has improved the quality of my YouTube vids a lot. Came as advertise and was packaged very well.

So far very happy with the new camera! Microphone is a huge improvement over my old GoPro filming set up. Also liked getting the memory card at the same time.

I bought this as a gift for my grandson who has a band, Peacoat Gang. He has made several videos with it, and I have to say they are very good and professional looking. He loves it. The sound quality is excellent, and he says it was easy to learn to use it.
Good for small projects and YouTube

The camera itself is a solid entry level DSLR for YouTube or small video projects. Being able to attach different lenses and shoot in 1080p. Picture quality is good, definitely better DSLRs out there but it is suitable for this bundle and price range. The included mic helps for video recording as anytime of external mic or audio recording device is preferred for video recording.
For new vloggers and photographers

Excellent camera for the price. I’m a new vlogger starting a YouTube channel and this camera is just perfect for it. I set it up with the rode vid mic go and it’s awesome.
