Gordon and Doug look at two new Canon cameras: the Rebel T6i and T6s, also known as the 750D and 760D, respectively. (Yeah, it’s confusing.) The original Rebel was the first under-$1,000 DSLR and now boosted to 24 megapixels, these new models continue as good “above entry level” cameras.
Are the additional features in the T6s/760D (eye sensor for EVF/LCD switching, info LCD on the top plate, rear control dial, servo autofocus in Live View) worth the US$100 premium? When should you be using Live View instead of the optical viewfinder? And are all Canon STM lenses created equal? (Hint: Some make more noise than others!) Tune in to hear the answers and how these new cameras compare to the Nikon D5500 and Sony a6000.
Also in this episode, Gordon reviews the updated Canon “nifty thrifty fifty” EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens.
