Canon EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D  – An Overview

The Canon EOS Rebel T6i, known as EOS 750D outside the US, features a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, as well as a 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor which offers a very good metering accuracy. This camera is an improvement in comparison with the previous model, Canon T5i, in terms on effective resolution, AF system, metering sensors and connectivity. Thanks to the Wi-Fi with NFC capability, you can pair the camera with your NFC-equipped phone by simply tapping them against each other. This makes transferring and sharing your photos a breeze.

The large sensor format delivers excellent results in low light, the dynamic range being also quite good. Although face recognition and subject tracking work very well in live view, they only work on stationary subjects. If you need to shoot images of subjects in motion, you may want to consider upgrading to the T6s Rebel, which does a much better job at tracking moving subjects.
