Below are our Canon T6i viewfinder accuracy test results.

Viewfinder Test Results

Fair accuracy from the optical viewfinder, though excellent accuracy from the LCD in Live View mode.

70mm, Optical Viewfinder 70mm, LCD Live View

We measured the Canon T6i's optical viewfinder coverage at about 94%, a little less than Canon's 95% spec, and the resulting image is slightly shifted both horizontally and vertically with respect to the sensor. This unfortunately isn't that unusual for a consumer DSLR, though. Live View mode using the LCD in record mode was much more accurate, resulting in essentially 100% coverage, and of course the image isn't tilted or offset.


The images above were taken from our standardized test shots. For a collection of more pictorial photos, see our Canon EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D) Photo Gallery .
