Canon Announces A New Entry-Level ‘Rebel T6’ DSLR

Canon's DSLR sales have been on a significant decline due to the thriving mirrorless market from the competitors like Sony and Panasonic. That isn't stopping the imaging giant from announcing the Rebel T6, a new model geared towards beginner photographers who aren't looking for an expensive camera with all the unnecessary bells and whistles.

Here's are the important specs regarding the new T6:

  • 18MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 920k-Dot LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps
  • 9-Point AF with Center Cross-Type Point
  • Extended ISO 12800, 3 fps Shooting
  • Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC
  • Scene Intelligent Auto Mode
  • Basic+ and Creative Auto Modes
  • EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens

The new T6 closely resembles its predecessor the T5, as well as its older siblings the T6i and T6s. Compared to the specs of last year's T5 model, not much has changed besides the introduction of Wi-Fi. With the T6 priced at $549 with the kit 18-55mm lens, it seems to ba a rather tough sell (unless you absolutely need Wi-Fi) compared to the T5 with kit lens which is now selling on B&H for $399 plus 4% in purchase rewards (worth $16).
