Canon T6 Review: Can a modest upgrade sustain the popular entry-level Rebel through another generation?


posted Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 4:45 PM EST


Earlier this year, Canon launched its EOS Rebel T6 DSLR, a followup to 2014's extremely popular Rebel T5. Interestingly, the newer model retained most of its predecessor's feature set -- including its entire imaging pipeline -- with little if any changes. The Canon T6 sports noteworthy updates in just two key areas: It now offers in-camera Wi-Fi and NFC radios to allow for quick-and-easy, cable-free sharing through your smartphone. It also features a higher-resolution LCD monitor.

When we completed our review of the earlier camera two years ago, the T5 earned itself a Dave's Pick award thanks to the potent combination of good image quality and an extremely affordable pricetag. The Canon T6 retains both unchanged, but the market has moved along quite some way in the last couple of years. With rivals having made gains in image quality and other areas, will the Canon T6's older sensor and processor pairing hold it back in the current market?


That's what we wanted to find out in our in-depth review of the Canon T6, and now we're brought it to a close with the addition of our final verdict. If you're in the market for an affordable entry-level DSLR, see what we think now in the just-published conclusion!
