Canon EOS Rebel T6s DSLR Camera

With much more control over prior models, the Canon EOS Rebel T6s featuring a 18-135mm Lens is the first of its class to contain a top LCD panel, horizontal level and a Quick Control dial. This camera offers a high resolution 24.2-MP CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 6 Image Processor in a compact body, and it's delivered with an adaptable standard to telephoto zoom lens, providing shooting in a wide array of conditions, from bright sunlight to dim indoor scenes with its ISO performance of up to 12,800, which is expandable to 25,600. The APS-C camera features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity along with NFC that provides wireless transfer of video and images to cloud storage and social networks using the Camera Connect mobile application. Also, NFC delivers fast connection to mobile devices along with the CS100 Connect Station.

Full HD video in MP4 format is available with the T6s plus the addition to stills and it features Hybrid CMOS AF III for fast, precise autofocus during both video shooting and Live View. Also, there's a built-in HDR video mode for improved highlight and shadow detail. An LCD vari-angle 3.0" 1.04M-dot ClearView II touchscreen monitor at the back of the camera provides versatile placement of the camera and clear viewing, even out of doors. In addition, the EOS scene analysis system can locate flickering light and near-infrared light sources to apprise you of the best information for scene metering.

An EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is included in the kit along with the camera body to lend a hand as a versatile everyday lens that covers a 35mm 28.8-216mm equivalent focal length range. The STM stepping motor assists achieve nearly-silent focusing when employed in tandem with the Movie Servo AF mode while the optical image stabilization system diminishes the appearance of camera shake.

Continuous high speed shooting at up to 5 fps safeguards you will not miss a photo opp during fast action and this is advantage of the 19-point all cross-type AF system. Creative filters are also available for preset appearance for your pictures.

White spots may appear on the optical layer in some units of the EOS Rebel T6s which may result in the look of dark circular patterns on the capture photo under certain shooting situations. Affected units potentially include cameras featuring serial numbers of "XXnnnnnnnnnn" where XX is 01 or 02. These EOS cameras will be inspected and repaired without cost by Canon USA.
