    Fantastic and intuitive starter camera

    Posted

    I had been previously using my smartphone for basic photography but quickly realized its limitations. Purchasing a dedicated DSLR felt like an obvious next step, but there are many cameras to choose from. My primary concern was finding a camera with capabilities that would allow me to learn new photography techniques without being too intimidating or limited. The Rebel T6 fit my needs perfectly. Even with the lens attached, the T6 is surprisingly lightweight and compact. When it is being carried in a camera bag it feels almost weightless. The design is very similar to the other Rebel models so there aren't surprises with it. One notable feature on this T6 model is the inclusion of WiFi functionality. It's a bit difficult to setup (Requiring the desktop Canon app) but it works and even integrates with several social media platforms so pictures can be posted directly from the camera. I've found the most useful function is the ability to pair the camera with a smartphone to easily transfer pictures and shoot remotely. Part of the reason I enjoy the camera so much is that it feels like it is designed to teach as it is being used. While it is easier to leave the camera on one of the automatic presets, I've actually had more fun tinkering in the manual modes. The interface is surprisingly intuitive without compromising the performance or limiting user control. A "feature guide", as the settings menu describes it, displays a short description of how each setting affects the picture (The aperture setting, for example, explains how the value set creates a depth of field) which has made the camera a lot easier to become accustomed to. As for the image quality, it's fantastic and what you would expect from a model in Canon's flagship camera line. I've taken several portrait stills for a film project and the images all look stunning and lively. The included lens is a great starter and has been able to capture everything from macro pictures of flowers to stunning waterfalls. The built-in ability to capture RAW images is an invaluable feature, and with a bit of color correction in Photoshop, the image quality can rival far more expensive cameras. I only have a few complaints about the camera, mainly that a few settings and features need to be tweaked for optimal performance. I found the default setting for the autofocus was unbearably slow but that the camera had several much faster modes built-in. The flash is also really harsh but that is easily solved with external lighting or a diffuser. Overall, I'd say this is the perfect camera for new photographers to pick up. It has many easy-to-use features while offering more advanced settings for better image control.

    This is my first DSLR I have ever bought. I have been shooting film for 10+ years. I am truly happy with my purchase. Still has that 35mm feel. One thing I noticed is you have to go one stop down sometimes when shooting manually to get the correct exposure, but that’s no big deal for me. The rest of the settings are great, and the camera captures the true colors and light of the situation. I’ve seen some other cameras (Fuji, Nikon) that exaggerate the colors. This camera does not do this. The quality of the images are also amazing. It also does really well in low light situations. The image stabilizer allows you to get low light shots i never thought i would get.

    This Camera is Awesome! I originally had the Rebel T5 - I got it a few years ago. My son dropped it on accident and broke it :( - so I grabbed this T6 Bundle Pack While it was on sale. Was very happy with it - It is better than my T5 and I also got it for about half the price that I paid for the T5 about 4 years ago. I also grabbed the 3 year insurance plan. These cameras are great - they can get banged around pretty good and still work. But depending on how and where you drop it - they might not work right again and to fix them they start off at like 325.00 and up - so you might want to think about protecting the investment you paid for the camera.

    This is my very first DSLR camera and I am very happy with it! It has so many great features that are actually useful and takes excellent quality photos. My first few shots were amazing they look like they were taken by a professional. As suggested by the Best Buy store representative, I purchased the camera separately instead of the package so I can get a better lens with a stabilizer feature for only $100 more as opposed to the one included in the package. Great camera for the price.

    While the Nikon D3400 is rated as a better product by most major review sites, I believe it is slightly overrated and the Canon Rebel T6 is slightly underrated. The Nikon D3400 is probably the better camera due to specs, but the Rebel T6 holds its own far more than most of the reviews would lead you to believe. Even though it sports an older image sensor compared to the Nikon, I really was impressed with the capture speeds, lens quality, image quality and the wide range of Canon accessories. Battery life was also far superior to what I was led to believe. This makes a fine starter DSLR regardless of the reviews.

    I've relied primarily on my phone camera for the past few years and decided it was time to move up to a real camera. I went with the Canon because I had a 35mm years ago and still had a few lenses for it. I'm very pleased with the pictures this camera takes, even though I'm still using the auto setting. I particularly like that I t pairs with my iPhone so that I can use the phone as a remote and a view screen. The only thing I feel is missing, is a selection of filters on the camera itself. Overall, I enthusiastically recommend this camera to anyone who is ready to make the step up from their phone, to a real camera.

    Bought for my daughter who wants to get into digital photography above the capabilities of a smart phone camera. This product is easy to use, lighter weight than more sophisticated higher end cameras. Takes a nice picture with automatic settings and has enough features to help her learn. For a non-professional photographer or a beginning professional to be, this camera does the job at a reasonable price.

    I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this camera and am thrilled with my decision! The image quality is crisp, vibrant and sharp. I also love the WiFi capabilities to use the Canon app for taking photos, making adjustments to the settings and transferring photos to my phone. The Rebel T6 is versatile for a wide range of photography projects including portraits, landscapes and in low-light. The manual focus functions allow me to be more creative - and the camera works perfectly with the long-range lens from my film SLR.

    Love this camera! have been using rebels for 7 years. This is an upgrade from my rebel XS, which is still a great camera and still functioning. I will hand it down to my kids. It is a great all purpose camera, great size for vacations, holidays, family events! Fits in my purse (kinda big purse)...I take it everywhere. I even do a little bit of portrait shoots for family and friends. Husband wanted me to get pro level Canon, but they were too heavy for me to carry around for everyday use. Great camera for my price range and usage.

    My wife and I are complete novices to photography. Aside from taking many photos on our smartphone, neither of us have really any experience with cameras. This camera is wonderful. We mainly follow our dogs around and shoot photos of them and the image quality has exceeded expectations. I was back and forth between this and the rebel t5 and I am glad I chose this one as I have found the Android app very handy so far.

    This camera replaces a very old EOS film camera, I already had a 50 mm and 70-210 mm lens that are of very high quality so sticking with the Canon made sense to me since the old lenses work on the new camera even though I have no use for the 50mm anymore as the included lens covers that. Even my bad pics look incredible on this camera. Easy to use, battery life is good and I took over 400 pics on one charge and one 32gig card.

    Camera was purchase to keep track with the progress of my new home that I was renovating. it has a lot of functions to take pictures and videos of my memories as I do work to my new home. Clear shots, videos, and able to use different lenses. Also camera explains in detail each option to fit your needs as you rotate through the dial.

    I knew this camera would be awesome, the feature where you can upload photos via wifi directly to facebook or your computer or another media is fantastic! Otherwise all the features are the same amazing features canon is known for. Also I found really, really awesome tutorial when I registered my camera with canon that show me how to maximize the usage of my camere. and special photo tips.

    This camera is extremely comfortable to get to know. The functions and options are not too complex, and give the user a feel of what a different -more advanced camera would be like. In itself, it is nice quality and once exploring with different options and settings is done, the user will be surprised how even a beginners camera does wonders! It is not as heavy as I thought and the lenses are great!!

    This is my first time having a Canon since May ‘18 when my EOS Rebel T5 was damaged due to moisture from the rain right as free I concluded a photo shoot. Now that I have the next model up my pictures are coming out a lot better than with the Nikon D3300 I had for the time. I’m Team Canon all day!

    The camera is a great price. It takes good pictures before you get into all the different lenses for varies things. It has Wi-Fi I however, I haven't tried yet, still a great feature to have and I will be using it. It's a good beginner camera for photographers. There are so many guided automatic modes that gently help you. it doesn't come with a manual, but it's easy to find online.

    I had a previous similar Rebel model that fell off the counter and no longer worked. I called Canon and was told parts are no longer available for it (planned obsolescence?), so I needed a new one that would be compatible with the extra lenses I have. This is perfect and I already know how to use it.

    I recently upgraded my Canon camera to the T6, and I couldn't be more pleased. I could instantly see the difference in the quality from my old camera to the T6, the pictures are much sharper, the color more vibrant. It is very user friendly, and each day I learn more interesting features. For the cost, this is a great camera for people who enjoy taking photos.

    I was looking to purchase a very simple camera for outdoor photos. One of the employees directed me to this camera. Took it to an outing to the zoo and the look of the photos blew my mind. The quality is amazing! Has so many different functions and what I love the most is that the lenses are interchangeable so it’s convenient!

    The Canon Rebel T6 is a very adaptable camera for someone who is used to a non-digital 35mm. After reading thru the manual, most people can set the camera on the automatic setting and get excellent results. There are enough setting to satisfy the most avid photographer. Good value for the money.
