Like peas in a pod

Canon has announced two new entry-level dSLRs to suit beginner photographers. The 750D and 760D share the same 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, but the 760D enjoys a few more features.

In the US, the 750D is called the Rebel T6i while the 760D is known as the Rebel T6s.

Touch and try

Like the older 700D/T5i, both of these new models have a variable-angle 3-inch LCD touchscreen. Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity is now standard.

More on the inside

They might look similar from the front, but rest assured there are plenty of other cosmetic changes to differentiate the 760D/T6s from its less expensive sibling.

Lock it down

A trickle-down feature from cameras like the 7D Mark II, the 760D/T6s comes with a locking mode dial. Press and hold the button while twisting the dial to change the shooting mode.

On top of the regular manual exposure modes (PASM), the camera also has scene modes for beginner photographers.

LCD display

There's not one but two displays on the 760D/T6s. At the top of the camera, a small LCD panel gives you information on exposure.

SD slot

Like all of Canon's other entry-level dSLRs, both cameras take SD cards.

Making movies

On top of the standard 1080p video recording (30/25/24 frames per second) in MP4, the 760D/T6s offers a miniature movie mode. This simulates the effect from a tilt-shift lens, making the subjects look small in the frame. Users also get the option of changing the recording speed to 5, 10 or 20x normal pace to simulate a time-lapse effect.

HDR movie

When in automatic mode, the 760D/T6s can record HDR (high dynamic range) video. The camera records a clip at 60 frames per second, with every alternate frame underexposed from the metered exposure. Then, these frames are combined to create a finished video at 30 frames per second with a greater dynamic range than a regular video. HDR video is only available at 720p.
