Canon EOS Rebel T6i in 2019: Budget-Friendly DSLR for Beginners (Review)
Like all amateur Canon SLR cameras, 750D is powered by a lithium-ion battery.
LP-E17 is installed, withstanding at least 440 cycles of recharging. The camera allows you to save energy by automatically turning off the power after a certain period (you can set its duration in the menu).
Printing via Wi-Fi.
The camera can send photos for printing via Wi-Fi. Direct printing on Canon/Pixma photo printers with PictBridge is supported.
Files are stored on SD, SDHC or SDXC (UHS-I) cards up to 64 GB in size.
Canon T6i shoots in JPEG and RAW of the second version, and video shooting is in MP4 at a resolution of up to 1920×1080 pixels.
… Full HD video shooting is possible with a frequency of up to 30 fps when using autofocus, as well as with auto or manual settings.
The Built-in Wi-Fi Feature
Canon EOS Rebel T6i, or 750D outside the Americas, is Canon’s budget entry-level DSLR with NFC and Wi-Fi connection.
(Internet technology and gadget fans will absolutely love this feature.)
Initially, it was the Nikon that started the era of budget SLRcameras with a built-in Wi-Fi, with their release of Nikon D5300 in late 2013.
Later, this initiative was intercepted by the updated D5500 model.
Therefore, the Wi-Fi feature in Rebel T6i is quite an expected and correct step to a brighter future.
By the way…
It can be argued that Canon did a better job here than Nikon.
Canon EOS T6i: Scene Modes and Creative Filters
It gets better:
When buying the first DSLR, amateur photographers are usually full of enthusiasm. Finally, after a point-and-shoot camera, you can play with the settings!
But in practice, preset Auto modes are used much more often than manual input of parameters.
Let’s agree that it’s much more interesting to concentrate on building a frame and strive to have time to take a shot of the elusive scene.
What do the developers of Canon EOS 750D offer in this regard?
In addition to the usual Scene modes like portraits, landscapes and sports, in this camera model there are also:
Handheld Night Scene,
HDR Backlight Control.
Besides the common Scene modes, there are also creative filter features such as:
Art bold effect
Water painting effect
Toy camera effect
You can transform an image into an art work with the water painting effect, apply the “fish eye” effect, create a miniature effect, or use the toy camera effect as if it were shooting tiny cities with tiny people in it.
Canon Rebel T6i is a great budget SLR camera, with a new viewfinder and the ability to synchronize with a smartphone or tablet.
I will say more:
Not only the beginners, but also the enthusiast photographers, who have a certain level of experience, will enjoy this camera.
As it has been mentioned earlier, this DSLR will sure appeal for technology geeks and avid users of social media.
Thanks to the presence of NFC and Wi-Fi, you will be able to shoot and upload your photos to your social media page straight away.
(It’s also why on Digital World Beauty, I recommend T6i as one of the best budget cameras for Instagram and blog photos.)
Last but not least:
If you already have a similar model, like the Rebel T5i (700D) or Rebel T3i (600D), I wouldn’t recommend changing them to T6i (750D), because you won’t see any significant changes in terms of image quality. IMHO.
What about T6 vs T6i?
There aren’t a lot of huge changes between this two but if you can afford it I recommend choosing the T6i. It’s just a little bit better and offers such features like articulated touch-screen for an easy camera operation.
Moreover, based on my stats, my website visitors often returned the T6 back to Amazon. Opposite is true for the T6i bundle.
But, of course, the choice is yours.
