Canon EOS Rebel T6 (EOS 1300D) Review

 

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D is an entry-level DSLR targeted toward first-time ILC users and smartphone upgraders. Built around an 18MP APS-C sensor, the T6 offers Wi-Fi with NFC for easy photo sharing when you're out-and-about, and adds a faster...

Canon EOS Rebel T6 with 18-55mm lens

 

At $500 for the kit with an 18-55mm lens (£385, AU$650), it's really inexpensive for a model with a press release dated 2016. But newer is not always better. Much of the camera is based on a higher-end model from 2013 that's still available, the EOS...

The Canon EOS Rebel T6's photo and video quality are definitely better than those of a point-and-shoot.

Its feature set is beyond minimal and it's slow for a family camera.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (aka the EOS 1300D) hits the basics for a low price, but that's about it.

Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D

 

Back in 2003, Canon introduced the first EOS Digital Rebel (300D), the first DSLR to retail for under $1,000.The great value drove this model to the #1 sales position in less than 30 days and an EOS Digital Rebel model has been the #1 best selling...

The age-old adage of "You get what you pay for" holds a lot of truth for photography gear, but ... the Canon EOS Rebel T6 defies this logic to some extent.While the T6 feature set is best considered basic and this is not the ideal camera for many uses...

Canon EOS 1300D Review

 

The Canon EOS 1300D (otherwise known as the Digital Rebel T6 in North America) updates the EOS 1200D / Rebel T5 as Canon's entry-level DSLR marketed squarely at first-time DSLR buyers. The new camera is more evolution than revolution though, as it...

An entry-level DSLR is always going to be a tricky product to positon within a manufacturer’s range, as there’s only so much tech you can incorporate before it’ll encroach on mid-range models. However, with the competing Nikon D3300 already offering a...

Canon T6 Review

 

Canon's most affordable entry-level DSLR, the Rebel T6 shares much with the earlier T5. It differs, though, in providing the wireless connectivity necessary to get your photos onto your phone (and from there, to Facebook) thanks to in-camera Wi-Fi...

Good image quality overall; Good value for money; In-camera Wi-Fi and NFC make light work of image sharing; Decent kit lens; Friendly, approachable design; Good ergonomics; Lots of room to grow in Canon's ecosystem

Slow burst shooting with very limited raw buffer; Resolution, dynamic range and high ISO performance trail current rivals; Mediocre autofocus performance; Limited feature set; Very basic movie capture features

Canon EOS 1300D / Rebel T6 review

 

The Canon EOS 1300D, or Rebel T6 as it's known in North America, is Canon's latest entry-level DSLR. Announced in March 2016, it's a minor update to the 1200D / T5 launched two years previously. The EOS 1300D / T6 shares a great deal with its...

APSC sensor delivers good quality images ; Built-in Wifi with NFC ; Upgraded 920k dot LCD screen ; Creative filters

Poor Wifi implementation with connectivity issues in my tests ; Smallish optical viewfinder image ; Poor AF in low light ; Slow continuous shooting ; Lacks continuous AF for movies and a microphone input

The EOS 1300D / T6 is Canon's latest entry-level DSLR and replacment for the two year old 1200D / T5. It's a minor update which retains the older model's body, 18 Megapixel sensor and viewfinder with much the same set of stills and movie shooting...

Canon EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D review

 

A reasonably specced, good-value option for beginners

Good value ; Wi-Fi and NFC ; Textured coating ; High-resolution screen

Fixed screen ; No touchscreen ; 95% viewfinder ; Slow focusing in live view

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D is a solid if uninspiring entry-level DSLR, eschewing eye-catching features in favour of image quality and low cost. It's a great beginner option, but less impressive as an upgrade.

Canon EOS 1300D review: Entry-level ace?

 

Thanks to smartphones, everyone's a photographer these days – but what happens when you hit your iPhone or Galaxy's imaging limits and realise you need something a bit beefier? Chances are, your first thought is to buy yourself what used to be known as...

Accessibly priced, cecent all-round image quality, hardy and lightweight plastic body, simple control layout with large buttons, detail-rich LCD screen, Wi-Fi and NFC for easy smartphone hookup

Uninspiring styling, screen doesn’t fare well in sunshine, slow continuous shooting speed, just nine autofocus points, limited ISO range, not much different to earlier 1200D model

The world of entry-level DSLRs isn't a particularly dynamic or fast-moving one, but Canon has succeeded in hitting all the main bullet points with the 1300D, bar the lack of touchscreen.

Canon's latest entry-level model DSLR represents excellent value, and provides many photographers with the opportunity to get on the first rung of the DSLR ladder.

Canon EOS 1300D review

 

Canon's stripped things back for its new budget DSLR – but has it compromised in the right places?

Great picture quality ; Wi-Fi and app abilities ; Low price

Hardly a looker ; Video and Live View lack autofocus ; Similarly priced rivals are better

It’s cheap as chips and takes great photos but the 1300D’s not quite the bargain it seems
