Canon EOS Rebel T6s Summary
Canon Rebel T6s Assessment
The Canon Rebel T6s provides a compelling addition to the lineup of Canon DSLRs. Falling right between entry-level and professional DSLRs, this Rebel faces little competition. Its efficient dual control-dials and top status LCD enhance usability while keeping a moderately compact size.
The Canon T6s and T6i simultaneously launched the highest resolution sensors among 1.6X-crop-sensor cameras. This new 24 megapixels CMOS sensor with Hybrid AF III combines on-sensor Phase-Detect autofocus and a 19-point all-cross-type standard AF module. It delivers good coverage and relatively fast autofocus for both stills and video.
Image quality of the T6s is reasonable with low image-noise and good dynamic range until ISO 800. It falls slight behind from ISO 1600 to 3200, yet remains quite usable for common print sizes. Colors are nicely saturated with average white-balance. Metering is exceptionally good though.
The Canon EOS Rebel T6s delivers the next level of usability among its peers. The main downside is a rather small cropped 95% coverage viewfinder. Yet, Canon compensated well with a superb Live-View implementation. All in all, this is an interesting model to consider as an upgrade from an entry-level Rebel.
