Canon Rebel T6i and Rebel T6s DxOMark scores published (first Canon sensor to offer 12 stops DR)

Rebel T6s

DxOMark published their test results for the Canon Rebel T6i/EOS 750D and Rebel T6s/EOS 760D.

As you can see in the image above, the new 24MP sensor scores a bit better than the EOS 70D and EOS 7D Mark II, and, according to DxOMark, has more stop of dynamic range than any other Canon sensor.

About the Rebel T6s/EOS 760D DxOMark writes:

While it’s not our place to discuss why Canon should choose to introduce two models that vary mostly by their controls (although the 760D’s tracking AF capability in live view is likely a worthwhile feature), the sensor performance for the EOS 760D is intriguing. Canon has made significant advances over the previous generation sensor, particularly with regard to low ISO noise levels and improved dynamic range. While sensor performance is still behind the very best APS-C models, Canon appears to be taking up the challenge set by Sony, and while it’s still got some way to go, that has to be good news for the consumer.

About the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D DxOMark writes:

As an entry-level model the Canon EOS 750D (T6i) makes some compromises in layout and controls — for example, there’s no top plate LCD as found on the EOS 760D (T6s), but sensor performance is on par with the camera maker’s mid- and high-end models, the EOS 70D and the recently-introduced EOS 7D Mk II. While it’s true that the Canon sensors are behind the very best APS-C models in terms of low ISO performance (particularly noticeable when comparing dynamic range), the company is making some noteworthy advances.

Canon Rebel T6s/EOS 760D review (CameraLabs)


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.

Canon Rebel T6s review (DPReview)

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.
