Canon EOS 760D / Rebel T6s review - a classy step-up from budget DSLRs
The EOS 760D, or Rebel T6s as it's known in North America, is Canon's latest upper entry-level DSLR. Successor to the EOS 700D / Rebel T5i, it boosts the sensor resolution from 18 to 24 Megapixels (the highest yet for Canon's APS-C DSLRs), features an improved hybrid AF system for movies, a new 7560 pixel metering sensor, a 19-point viewfinder AF system (inherited from the EOS 70D), and becomes the first Rebel / xxxD to feature built-in Wifi with NFC. Like its predecessor, it's also fitted with a 3in fully-articulated touch-screen and a penta-mirror optical viewfinder.
Interestingly the 760D / T6s was announced alongside a slightly cheaper version called the 750D / T6i. This version lacks the upper information screen, eye sensor and rear control dial, along with the digital zoom and HDR modes for movies. But inside, the sensor, screen, viewfinder, 5fps continuous shooting and 19-point AF system are identical.
Having the two models is an interesting strategy. The lower-end T6i / 750D feels firmly in the upper entry-level camp, while the higher-end T6s / 760D feels more like a mid-range model, like the EOS 70D. In my review I'll take an in-depth look at the EOS 760D / T6s and show you how it compares not just to the 750D / T6i, but rival models including Nikon's D5500, Panasonic's Lumix G7 and Sony's A6000. So if you're shopping for a step-up from a budget interchangeable lens camera, you're in the right place!
