Canon Intros EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR with Built-In WiFi and NFC for Sharing Images

Canon just announced its latest entry-level DSLR: the 18-megapixel EOS Rebel T6. The Canon EOS Rebel T6 is designed to offer easy wireless sharing of photos and videos to social media sites thanks to its built-in WiFi and NFC.

Here’s a rundown of the key features of the new Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR :

• 18.0 Megapixel Canon CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor for better image quality and fast operation.

• ISO 100–6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for shooting from bright light to low light.

• Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity for sharing to smart devices, social media sites and the Canon Connect Station CS100 device.

• 9‐point AF system (including one center cross‐type AF point) and AI Servo AF provide impressive autofocus performance with accurate results.

• Optical Viewfinder helps facilitate quick and accurate focusing by framing and capturing the subject at hand.

• Large, 3.0-inch LCD monitor with 920,000 dots for easy viewing and reviewing.

• Full HD video mode for high quality, easy-to-use video capture.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera offers a wide ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), which is design to help it shoot both still and moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions. In addition, the camera is capable of shooting high-resolution 18 megapixel still photos continuously up-to-three frames per second (fps), with predictive autofocus to help keep images sharp, even with moving subjects.

The Scene Intelligent Auto mode in the Canon  EOS Rebel T6 camera analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast and whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod. Scene Intelligent Auto mode then chooses the exposure and enhancements that can bring out the beauty in virtually any scene or situation. Simplifying DSLR image capture, Scene Intelligent Auto mode lets you concentrate on composing images without puzzling over settings.

Another addition to the Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera is a new “Food Mode” on the mode dial. This mode enhances the color and brightness of the food images while at the same time making the images ready to share.

Other fully automatic exposure modes include portrait, night portrait, landscape, sports, and close-up. Additionally, the easy-to-use Full HD video mode captures sharp, high-definition video up to 1080p resolution with the choice of automatic or manual focusing.

Creative filters such as Fisheye, Toy Camera, Miniature, and Soft Focus give users additional ways to create fun and imaginative images to enjoy, print and share. The camera’s new “white priority” Auto White Balance setting enables users to create images with a more neutral tone when shooting under incandescent lighting. In addition to all the automatic modes, the new Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera provides complete manual exposure and focus controls plus RAW image output for advanced amateur photographers and photography students.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera  goes on sale in April 2016 for $549.99 as a kit with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II standard zoom lens.
