Canon Rebel T6s/EOS 760D review (CameraLabs)

20150205_thumbL_eosrebelt6s_3q

Camera Labs posted their full review of the Canon EOS 760D/Rebel T6s. From the conclusion:

In terms of overall handling, the cheaperEOS 750D/Rebel T6i feels closer to an entry-level DSLR, whereas the 760D / T6s feels a step higher, approaching mid-range models. The upper LCD screen lets you check settings at a glance, the eye sensor switches the screen off as you compose with the viewfinder, but most importantly the rear wheel provides a second control that makes exposure adjustments quicker and easier. I can live without the HDR movie mode, but the digital zoom option, last seen in the much earlier 600D / T3i, starts with a handy 1:1 crop, delivering roughly three times magnification with no loss of quality. Then there’s the continuous AF in Live View which lets you take photos of subjects in motion when composing with the screen. It all adds up to a camera that handles better and feels classier overall.
