It’s the new entry-level DSLR from Canon, the T6, designed for easy sharing of photos and videos to social media sites via compatible smartphones and other mobile devices, as well as Canon’s Connect Station CS100.
The camera offers and 18.0-megapixel Canon CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor; ISO 100–6400 (expandable to H: 12800); built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity; 9-point AF system (including one centre cross-type AF point) and AI Servo AF; a high-performance optical viewfinder as well as a 3.0-inch LCD monitor; and Full HD video mode.
Canon says the camera is capable of shooting 18-megapixel still photos continuously at up to three frames per second (fps), with predictive autofocus.
The Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colours, brightness, moving objects, contrast, and whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod. It then chooses the exposure and enhancements that can bring out the beauty in virtually any scene or situation.
The company also has added ‘Food Mode’ on the mode dial for the foodie or blogger to easily capture stunning images of the food they love. This mode enhances the colour and brightness of the food images while at the same time making the images ready to share. Other fully automatic exposure modes include portrait, night portrait, landscape, sports, and close-up.
Full HD video mode captures sharp, high-definition video up to 1080p resolution with the choice of automatic or manual focusing. Creative filters such as Fisheye, Toy Camera, Miniature, and Soft Focus are available. The camera’s new “white priority” Auto White Balance setting enables users to create images with a more neutral tone when shooting under incandescent lighting.
In addition to all the automatic modes, the T6 provides complete manual exposure and focus controls plus RAW image output.
Scheduled for availability in April, the estimated retail price of the Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera will be $699.99 when bundled with the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II standard zoom lens, and $649.99 when bundled with the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 DC III standard zoom lens.
