Inside, there's an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, Digic 4+ image processor, ISO range of up to 12,800 (6,400 native) and a nine-point autofocus system. Not surprisingly, video-recording is limited to 1080p at 24 and 30 fps, or 720p at 60 fps. (It's going to be a while before Canon puts 4K features on budget-friendly cameras.) That said, the Rebel T6 does come with a respectable, albeit expected, fixed 3-inch, 920,000-dot screen, as well as WiFi and NFC for sharing pictures remotely via Canon's Camera Connect app (available for iOS and Android).
Given that this is geared toward beginners, I used it differently than I would a higher-end model, such as the EOS 80D DSLR or one of Sony's mirrorless cameras. Instead of shooting with manual settings, I relied heavily on the Rebel T6's preset modes. For example, during a food-focused photoshoot, I used the camera's Food Mode, which locks in AF points and tries to automatically adjust exposure compensation and white balance, based on the subject and lighting around the scene.
While most of my photos looked colorful and sharp, the camera at times tried to do a little too much, resulting in soft, over-exposed shots. Still, I'd say eight out of 10 images produced by the Rebel T6 were satisfactory.
