Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR Camera

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (1300D in Europe) is a compact, lustrous DSLR featuring an 18 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor along with a DIGIC 4+ image processor and is comprised of a fluid set of imaging capabilities plus the support for a connected workflow.

Combined, this pair of technologies provide plush image quality with diminished noise, along with a native ISO sensitivity range of 100-6400 that can be additionally expanded to ISO 12800 to take care of shooting in poor and difficult lighting situations. The sensor and processor also provide the ability to continuously shoot at 3 fps for capturing moving subjects, as well as recording Full 1080p/30 HD video.

Taking advantage of shooting using the optical viewfinder, a 9-point AF system embodies a single center cross-type autofocus point for elevated accuracy and focusing agility, and a contrast-detection focusing system provides refined autofocus precision for acquiring movies or photographing using live view. The back panel 920k-dot 3.0" LCD offers a brilliant, clear image for playing back and reviewing images, while built-in Wi-Fi along with NFC also provides the ability to share images wirelessly from the T6 to a linked mobile device providing instant online sharing.

The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens, is included with the T6 which presents a 28.8-88mm (35mm) equivalent focal length range which handles wide-angle thru short telephoto perspectives. A single aspherical element is part of the optical design, to handle spherical aberrations and supply higher clarity, while an Optical Image Stabilizer diminishes the appearance of camera shake for keener handheld shooting.
