The Rebel T6i and Rebel T6i cameras are referred to as sibling devices taken from one DSLR line. In February 2015, Canon USA announced their intention regarding the popular line and promised its release for the end of April in the same year. The T6s, also dubbed 760D, has been considered by reviewers to be Canon’s current model for the Rebel line. The Rebel T6i or 750D, as it is also known, since its release has become known for its low cost appeal to buyers in the market. The devices both come equipped with an autofocus system in the form of a Hybrid CMOS Auto Focus 3. This enables autofocus accuracy and speed while capturing movies or during use of the camera’s live view feature. Also similar between the devices is the ISO sensitivity that ranges from one hundred to twelve thousand eight hundred, there continuous shooting capabilities of approximately five frames per second and a nineteen point auto focus system. The T6s and T6i also come designed with an interactive three inch swivelling display equipped with touchscreen functions and boasting one point zero four million dots. The new members of the Rebel line also share WI-FI and NFC connectivity and 1080p movie recording capabilities at approximately thirty frames per second. The T6s camera differs from the earlier Rebel lines with the innovative LCD panel located to the top of the device, a quick lockable control dial on the back of the camera, a built-in HDR for video shooting, a parallel level guide and a Servo auto focus during an active live view feature. The Servo feature is designed to enable users to monitor video capturing during burst shooting. It is most suited for the advanced photographer and mixes technology with modernity. The Rebel T6i boasts a three inch LCD monitor with ClearView 2 technology that allows for use at varied angles, continuous shooting at high-speeds, system designed for analyzing EOS scenes and innovative creative filters. Despite the differences, both devices offer users the highest quality as is now expected from Canon’s Rebel line buyers. This manual has been designed to widen the pool of knowledge concerning both devices and will seek to educate the populace on the features being offered. It is hoped that at the end of the guide, each user will be adequately outfitted with the requisite knowledge to maximize the enjoyment of the device as intended.
