Logical next step
Posted by: Elaray from: on
About two years ago, I took up photography as a new hobby. At that time, I bought a Canon Rebel T5. I felt my skills had improved so I bought the T6i as an upgrade. I really enjoy using the T6i. I especially love the touch screen controls. It's much easier to change settings because I don't have to remember how to do it. I just touch the "Q" and I'm able to make needed changes quickly and easily. I also like the wifi capability of this camera. I can send pictures to my phone or post pictures online platforms using my phone or tablet. I wish the process took fewer steps, but it is the same process as a point and shoot camera I own. There is a big difference between the sensor in the T5 and T6. The T6 pictures are so much sharper - even to my untrained eye.
This is a good camera for beginners. It gives the novice photographer room to grow.

Excellent picture, user friendly interface
Posted by: jamijum from: Indiana on
Bought T6i last Friday two days before official launch date. This is my first DSLR and second canon camera after Elan IIE. Bought this one with extra Canon f1.8/50mm fixed lense for sharp closeups and it did. Canon never disappointed me when it comes to picture quality and camera built and this time too No surprises. Setup was a breeze even for my 13 year old who configured the wifi and canon connect in no time. Picture quality is just awesome in all modes. This is more than a starter camera packed with lot of high end features. Best part is that all my exisiting Canon lenses worked like a charm and that is another reason why I choose Canon T6i over Nikon D5500. Can't really comment on the battery life yet as it is still going strong. The built is sturdy and the camera weight is just right. Its a little expansive though as compared to similar cameras like Nikon D5500 so it could be a tough choice for the first timers.

Just getting into DSLR's? This is a great start !

So the Canon T6i is definitely a great choice for someone looking to get away from the point and shoot cameras, or someone looking to improve the quality of their passion for photography. Some of the more expensive DSLR's can be confusing and too much for the beginner. This camera has a high amount of megapixels so that just because you are going with a beginner camera doesn't mean you are getting a beginner image. It's all about the lenses, not necessary the body. In my opinion, the 18-55 lens is a little weak in quality. I would much rather this kit have come with an 18-140mm, but it never offered it when I bought this kit. I have since moved up from this camera, but if it weren't for the T6i, I wouldn't have learned the basics in such a short period of time. This was a great purchase, and if you have a little more money, I would go for the T6s which gives you a few more features.

Great camera for the price
Posted by: Auchaus from: on
I have owned Canon cameras since the 80's. One of the greatest features is that they continue to support the previous lenses. I am still using lenses from my first camera. The Rebel EOS is an affordable option for all the features of the more expensive models. The higher end models are more durable and better quality, but the average, semi-pro would not notice the difference and probably could afford the higher price. I chose the T6i over the T6s model because the only difference is a top illuminated readout and HD movie preview option that didn't substantiate the additional cost. The remote shutter pairing with phone or tablet is a lot of fun, although I wish the iOS app had more features. I highly recommend this model.

Exceed expectations! Ouch, pricey accessories!!!
Posted by: AstronomyFan from: on
I chose this camera because most astrophotography software is available for Canon. Canon was smart to share their APIs, and include WiFi.
The camera has an excelente processor for low light. It also takes great stills. It actually is considerably better than Canon 70d for astrophotography!! That was a pleasant surprise.
The low light performance, noise reduction, the sensitivity and extra pixel density, is impressive.
I would not touch any camera at any price if it did not include WiFi (Canon 7DII is an example) that would not allow the user to remotely control the camera. The T6i shines here, while the competition with proprietary solutions pale in comparison to versatility that Canon offers with Canon T6i, M3 and 70D.
Canon DSLR functionality can be extended through third party solutions. Timelapse, remote live view, preprogrammed options, HDR, bracketing and movies and so much more, that allow this camera to behave like a semi-professional one. This was the second surprise.
Quality in low light is better than Sony, Noise reduction works flawlessly. This is why I'm satisfied with this purchase.
It's not a camera meant for movies, where the competition trashes it, as they track a subject and refocus on it while it moves. The T6i falls flat here.
Canon, give us a battery that will last more than a couple hours of continuous use at a reasonable price. 50$ is not reasonable. The original is useless, and the power adapter over 100$ is a joke. An 8v 3amp regulated power supply can be bought for considerable less.
Accessories cost an arm and a leg! Canon needs to address this ASAP, if they intend to sell their T6i or T6s inventories.
One advice to Canon, you would gain more loyalty from your consumer base, if you gave the T6i additional options through an update with options found on the 70D. Slow motion photography, more ISO settings, simple file transfer thorough WiFi, K option to set white balance, to name a few. It would go a long way in the market place.

Good prosumer camera on a reasonable budget
Posted by: Angela from: on
This camera was chosen after extensive reading of both professional and personal reviews, and we’ve been quite happy with it. There are fancier/better options in the Canon line, but you pay for them. We chose this because the features per price point matched the level of investment we could make.
We’ve been very happy with the vibrant colors, the high pixel count and the autofocus. The camera does an outstanding job in low light settings. The articulating touchscreen lcd makes it easy to choose focal points, and being able to view the lcd from different angles allows us to make video and camera shots that would have been figuratively shots in the dark in the past – you can hold this camera high over your head and shoot down at a subject and know exactly what you’re getting.
Compared to previous models, the smaller battery did give us a little concern, but we haven't really stress-tested it - it's been suitable for our needs so far. Being previous Canon owners, our investment in memory is predominantly compact flash, so this camera did require purchasing some smaller format memory cards. Nevertheless, we have found it worth it.

Love this Camera
Posted by: meenooone from: Bakersfield, Ca on
I am so glad I purchased this camera yesterday. I researched on the internet before going in. This camera got good reviews, and I was happy with the rebel xsi that I have, but I was thinking about upgrading. I was honest with the sales rep, and told him I probably waste my money buying these great cameras, then only use auto. He told me the differences with the cameras and what an improvement I would notice, even on auto :). I was really wanting to improve speed, and pixels. I already had a macro lens, so I took a picture sitting on the sofa with my cat on the coffee table. I wanted to test continuous shots. He was chewing on a figurine. When I installed the pics on my computer, I could not believe what I was seeing. I could see tiny water droplets running down the inside of his mouth. The photos were crystal clear. I can't wait to take photos of my great grand kids. Camera seems bigger and heavier than my xsi, but I like it. It feels solid in my hands when I take the photos, and not too bulky. I am so happy.

Worth the Price.
Posted by: Kyle from: on
This is the first DSLR camera I have purchased and I cannot talk enough about how easy it is to use. The auto-focus is perfect for action shots or if you're quickly trying to capture and image. With the touch screen, you can click and follow an object to stay focused and track, this is perfect for taking pictures of children or pets. The zoom quality of pictures cannot be compared with either. This camera is easy for novice photographers to learn on and perform basic photography. The more I continue to use the camera, the more I enjoy photography on hikes or with at family events. I would certainly recommend this product to friends.

Canon Rebal T6i DSLR
Posted by: Larry from: on
I used my Canon A-1 for over 40 years without a problem, so when I decided to go digital I did not hesitate. The ability of the camera to transmit image to my phone to share is GREAT!! Nobody can figure out how I take such great pictures with my phone!! Hahahaha

I purchased this film in an emergency situation to film a wedding. Normally I use a T2i and make short films for festivals or youtube and mostly shoot with a prime lens and everything in manual. However, since I make movies, on occasion I'll have a friend ask for a wedding video. Well, my wife took a trip and forgot and take my camera with her! So I was scrambing, liked everything about my T2i but was intrigued by the autofocus option on the T6i (something lacking on the T2i). It's not as fast for autofocus on a traditional video camera, but it's definitely a nice option to have.
Overall, the T series cameras are fantastic. They are great entry level options for you to learn on that will just automatically improve your photos or videos over your old point and shoot camera, and as you improve you can also pull award winning footage from them as well.
