Canon Rebel T6s review (DPReview)

Canon Rebel T6s

Photographic authority DPReview posted their full review of the new Canon Rebel T6s (EOS 760D). From the conclusion:

[Rebel T6s] image quality is on par with the best of its peers and the camera is capable of creating beautiful photos. Dynamic range performance lags behind Sony’s state of the art sensors. While this will likely grate at enthusiast photographers, whether it will matter to the majority of Rebel buyers is debatable. For someone who wants nice photos of a vacation or family event and who plans to shoot mostly in JPEG, there’s a lot to like.

Now that Canon has released two Rebels simultaneously, the biggest question for many is less likely to be ‘Should I get a Rebel?’ and more likely to be ‘Which Rebel should I get?’ From our perspective the answer is pretty clear. Unless you’re really stretched to spend the extra money, the T6s is quite a bit more camera than the T6i. That extra cash gets you a rear thumb wheel, top plate LCD, and continuous AF in live view. In fact, if this tracking AF pushes you to shoot in live view to capture moving subjects, then this feature alone justifies the extra cost.

I agree that you should by the Rebel T6s/EOS 760D instead of the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D. You’ll pay $100 more for the T6s/760D, but there is a lot you get for the bucks.
