Canon T6i/750D and T6s/760D

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.

  • I’d be considering this as a second body (backup) to my 7D simply because still the 7D is tough as nails but reaching end of its life. So for me, the question is not between these two models but rather the 70D and 760D. You may be surprised but I don’t want to go to full frame simply because none of the Canon bodies have the articulating screen and when doing indoor commercial images, getting the camera up against the wall with a super-wide angle (I use the Tokina 11-16 for that) this feature becomes very useful. Yes, I could change to Sony and I know that it will be a better image but hey, what about all my other Canon lenses? (hence stuck in the Canon eco system). Any thoughts out there? I’m always open to GOOD ideas. 🙂 Cheers
