Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Camera

The Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR loads a high resolution 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor along with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor into a very compact body featuring 18-55mm Canon Lens, which features a flexible standard zoom lens practical for video and still images. This system allows shooting in a wide array of conditions, from bright sunlight to dimly lit indoor scenarios because of ISO performance of up to 12,800, which may also be expanded to 25,600. The APS-C camera also features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity using NFC which provides for wireless transfer of video and images to social networks and cloud storage using the Camera Connect mobile app. In addition, NFC provides fast connection to the CS100 Connect Station as well as mobile devices.

Full HD video using MP4 format is available with the T6i in addition to still images and it features Hybrid CMOS AF III for fast, precise autofocus during Live View and movie shooting. A 3.0" vari-angle 1.04M-dot ClearView II LCD touchscreen monitor on the back of the camera allows for versatile arrangement of the camera and clear viewing, even outdoors. In addition, the EOS scene analysis system can sense flickering light sources and near-infrared light to accommodate the best information for metering the subject.

High speed continuous shooting at speeds as fast as 5 fps ensures you will never miss a photo during quick action and this is an advantage of using a 19-point all cross-type AF system. Also available are creative filters for preset expressions for your photos and videos.
