So this seems to have come and gone without much fanfare here on POTN, but I thought it was worth mentioning in it's own thread.

In February Canon announced two new DSLRs into the line up, the newest in the "XXXD" series, the nearly identically spec'ed EOS 750D and 760D (T6i and T6s)


Most base specifications and features appear to be identical on these two bodies with a handful a few distinctive exceptions which makes the T6s much more competitive with the 70D series.

Big news is a step up in the sensor;
24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor

"The EOS Rebel T6s camera has a next-generation 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that can capture images of incredible depth and beauty. With high resolution and an ISO sensitivity of ISO 100–12800 (expandable to H: 25600) the EOS Rebel T6s can capture images of immense quality in more lighting situations."

The big numbers are;

- New 24MP Hybird CMOS AFIII sensor which promises to deliver live view AF performance that rivals the dual pixel sensor tech in the 70D.

- 5 fps full res frame rate.

- 19 point AF system ala 7D, 70D.

- 3" Articulated touch screen w/ 1.04 million points

- 100-12800 ISO range

- Built in Wifi and incorporated NFC technology for instant connections.

Why two? And what does the extra $100.00 get you?
IMHO the T6s is where it's at, as it moves the "Rebel" into 70D territory quite well with some very simple added features. It will handle much more like other EOS bodies than like a Rebel.
It also offers a lot more advantages to movie modes.


Some of the advantages in the t6s are;

- AI Servo AF in Live view

- Top mounted LCD like on the more costly EOS bodies

- Quick control dial ala xxD vs. the XXXD pads.

- Locking Mode Dial on Left

Showing the differences in body design and control

In all it's quite a step forward fro this line of bodies. Hail 24MP Sensor, the 18MP is sensor is dead!

There has been some chatter in this thread:

https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1418032

But yes, the forum has been rather quiet on these two. My curiosity is in that sensor - how does it do in low light/ high ISO?

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

probably due to many on the finally launched 7dm2....???

interesting I would have been looking at one of them vs the 70d for myself too but finally getting myself a big boy camera... I just couldnt go back to a rebel. 19 point AF is well better than my t2i 9 point!

Thanks, missed it as I only searched for t6, DOH!

Anyone know the release dates of these, apart from the end of April!

Gotta love regional branding. Doesn't complicate things at all. :rolleyes:

God I hope these cameras have either a Sony sensor in them OR a better dynamic range sensor than what Canon seems to be stuck on (12stops) I'm so close to buying a Nikon d5500 but the thought of buying new glass is causing me to pause.

When I first saw 24MP listed for these! I was hoping they might have a Sony sensor. I love my Sony a6000 but Canon has all the great lenses.

I hope the 18MP sensor isn't dead. I just picked up a used 7D for $475.

Does t6s have smart ovf where it displays focus points while tracking. I really like rebel small form factor.

Why? I mean, it's a nice sensor, but hopefully the 24mp will be as well, and the 20mp is nicer than the 18mp. Your 7D will certainly work just as well, no matter if the 18mp is discontinued or not.

I am a bit confused. I like taking photos, but am not overly into the techie side of things. Why is that cramming a bunch of pixels onto a 1/2.3 sensor is just a marketing gimmick, but cramming 24mp onto an apsc sensor is a good thing?

I am also confused, how does the existence of this sensor effect your relationship with your 18MP 7D?
How does it make it "dead"
I still shoot happily with a 6MP and 10MP camera on occasion. they are alive and well.

It's a marketing gimmick on 1/2.3" sensors because it doesn't improve their image quality. The 20mp sensor is nicer than the 18mp sensor. If the 24mp sensor is also nicer than the 18mp (and hopefully better than the 20mp, of course) how is that anything but a good thing? The compact cameras have low-quality sensors and lenses that aren't helping by adding more pixels. ILCs have nicer components all around to make better use of their pixels, and it shows.

I was looking at updrading to a 70D in a few months and then they announced these. I really wanted the 70D for the better autofocus, MFA and wifi over my current rebel. These new models look to potentially level the playing field on the autofocus and wifi and bring a new sensor to boot. Be interesting to see what the reviews make of them, especially how they compare to the 70D.
