    I see both cameras and all that I can tell is the lense is just a higher value of your product.

        Yes. That is one of the best things Canon has done. I still use my lenses from the 80's when it was still film. :)

            Answer

            This is a complex question. It will be the same for lacrosse (LAX) as football, soccer, baseball (outdoors), LIGHTING IS PRIMARY FACTOR FOR INDOOR SPORTS : hockey, basketball (inside), volleyball, swimming, etc. Even in full, bright daylight, you will see PRO Photographers using HUGE, expensive, long-lenses. Perhaps comparison to a telescope may be helpful. Astronomers have always built the LARGEST-DIAMETER lenses that they could design, or afford to build. That is to get the most "LIGHT GATHERING POWER" possible, to capture photos. Remember that "tele-photo" lenses get their name from being, literally, telescopes adapted to serve as camera lenses. (1) FORGET ABOUT so-called "optical zoom" numbers on small cameras. That is only enlarging the image on the cam's LCD viewfinder. OPTICAL ZOOM is the actual long / short of the lens, to make a wider (short), or "closer" (long) FOCAL LENGTH of that LENS. (2) The longest lens (tele-photo) will "bring the subject closer" (appear larger) BUT... like a telescope, that changes the "F- ratio". YOU WILL NEED TO DO SOME BOOK-LEARNIN' ON YOUR OWN, as well as get advice from others. (3) "Big Glass" lenses ARE EXPENSIVE. There is no dodging the issue. (4) To succeed with an inexpensive, "kit" lens ; either zoom or fixed - focal length [F.L.] You will have to have LUCK : full Sunlight, USE A LENS-SHADE, and a STEADY HAND (much like marksmanship - DON"T "SNAP-OFF" the shot, gently "click"). Staying with lacrosse (LAX), if possible, get permission to formally represent the school, or organization, offer to "share" (c) with yearbook, or offer images (paid) to local press ("PRESS" pass, if possible). THEN, YOU MAY BE ALLOWED, with assistant, and brightly colored "caution" vest, TO USE A 10-12 ft. STEPLADDER, AND MOVE IT AS YOU SEE FIT. Do this on the OPPOSITE side of the field from the teams & officals - be as un-obtrusive, and SAFETY - CONSCIOUS as possible. (4) Summary - Read-up on "shooting sports" action. Get the most light possible on the subject. Get the largest - DIAMETER lens that you can affford ("light - gathering power"). Decide if you should shoot from the field ( ground or laddder) or, the higher-viewpoint of the stands (even the PRESS BOX, or "PHOTO PRESS", ON ROOF OF THE PRESS-BOX. Have a hard-copy "portfolio", of sports-action, so you can negotiate with school, PRESS, or Stadium officals, so you can "free-roam" for the best POV. How do you get to Carnegie Hall ?? ... "Practice, Man... practice". STUDY ABOUT TELEPHOTO LENSES. BUY THE BIGGEST & BEST THAT YOU CAN AFFORD. Good Luck... LAX is a truly great sport. - Mark T, Michigan, USA ; 23 MAY 16 -

            which one is better for taking pictures the T6i or the T6   (1 Answer)

              Answer

              T6 is a great dslr, but does not come with the same features. The T6i is 24 megapixels compared to the t6's 18, which really does give you the amazing quality and resolution that professionals look for. If you ever decide to record video, go with the T6i, the difference is shocking when shooting in 1080. The t6i also handles backlit subjects better than the T6. My friend purchased the 1300D (t6) and i purchased the T6i. When we go on shoots together, I am able to compose my shots better, he regrets not spending the extra to get the built in wifi feature with remote viewing.

                Answer

                Yes it will and works well easy to set up an excellent feature for a camera at this price point. No more having to pop out the SD card. The real benefit is being able to immediately send your pictures to your smart phone and post to social media.

                  Answer

                  I started out in high school photography in 2008, and had a 13.3 megapixel rebel xsi which I still have as a backup camera to this day. I now own a t6i (24.4 megapixels), They are long lasting cameras, I had a situation where my less than 3 month old t6i was thrown across a room (literally) and it sustained internal damage, however it was less than $150 to get the whole thing repaired and calibrated (turnaround was less than 10 days). So they are long lasting cameras, and if you do break it, its not an arm and a leg to get fixed. If your confident and have the patience to learn how to use this camera properly and compose your shots, this will be a good investment for you. Its a little more advanced than the T5 or Xsi, but if you can learn the functions, you will be producing much higher quality shots than you would going with an entry level nikon or lower-series Canon.

                    Answer

                    I know this question is old but in case you are still looking or wondering... Dont base it on price. Just because one is more expensive does not mean it is better. Looks for the one that has the most features you are interested in. I would suggest making a list from 1 to 10 (1 being more important, 10 least important) and whats in your budget. I was in the same boat as you and went with the T6i over the 70D because it fit my budget and had all the features i was looking for. Google canon t6i vs 70d and look at the results. They will list the advantages of one model over the other and common strengths.

                      Answer

                      The lens itself may be a little short at 55mm for tight shots, but you can always do a little post editing to bring it in. Be sure to use the sports setting to stop the action

                      I own a Nikon Coolpix and it does a good job for outdoors photos, but in a darker indoor room the flash is very weak, and no good for beyond 3 feet or so. My question is, how is the flash on the Rebel T6i?   (2 Answers)

                        Answer

                        The flash on this camera is awesome. I used it in the dark at Disneyland and got great shots of my family and the scenery. It does do a lot of preflashing sencing the environment which can be very annoying. But it is very powerful and produces great results. Great video in the dark too!
