The Canon EOS Rebel T6 Kit is ideal for first-time DSLR users.
If you're ready to take your photography to the next level, the Canon EOS Rebel T6 can take sharp, detailed photos right out of the gate, even if you're still learning the ropes. Its built-in feature guide helps you get familiar with shooting on a DSLR, and intelligent auto modes help you capture images with the right look. It's a great camera for beginners, and a great all-around DSLR. Its large sensor and fast image processor make it super-responsive. Plus it performs well in all kinds of light, so you can get away with flash-free shooting in dim situations.
Even as you're sharpening your photography skills, you can start taking gorgeous photos with the T6 right away, thanks to Creative Auto mode, which provides shooting guides on the LCD screen to explain how to make changes to exposure, tone, sharpness, and more. The T6 also has five different creative filters for still images. Give your photos a dreamy look with the Soft Focus effect, or make a city street look like a scale model with the Miniature effect.
The EOS Rebel T6 shoots Full HD (1920 x 1080) movies. If you're new to videography, the T6 is a great camera to learn on, plus it's fun to use. Thanks to the imaging power of the camera's sensor and fast DIGIC 4+ processor, you'll get sharp, well-exposed video any time of day. Video Snapshot mode lets you shoot two-, four-, or eight-second clips and stitch them together into a single movie. Capture the highlights of your next vacation in a cool, engaging way, or just have fun documenting daily life.
The T6's built-in Wi-Fi lets you use Canon's free Camera Connect app to transfer images and movies straight to your compatible phone or tablet. With the app, you can use your device as a wireless remote, and even change settings on the T6. Full DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility lets you share easily between the T6 and other DLNA-certified products like HDTVs. NFC touch pairing lets you connect easily to a compatible Android™ device, or to any other compatible device with NFC, like the Canon Connect Station CS100 wireless storage hub.
This kit is an awesome way to break into full-scale photography without breaking the bank. While you might want to invest in specialized lenses once you've sharpened your skills, the two included lenses cover such a wide focal range they may be all you'll ever need. You've got the image-stabilized 18-55mm option for your landscapes and architecture shots, and then you've got the 75-300mm lens for distant subjects like wildlife or performers on a stage. Experiment with both lenses for portraits and close-ups, and you'll find that each focal length gives you a distinctive look and feel. This flexibility combined with your choice of exposure settings makes it easy to develop and hone your unique style.

Free Canon printer! No body can beat this deal,very good camera also!
Pros: Good pictures, light weight!
The bonus kit came with a soft case, but the manufacturer also included a soft case. Camera it self is excellent.
Excellent camera for someone that wants light weight and easy to operate. Quality of pictures are excellent also.
Pros: Value. Great photos so far.
Cons: None yet.
Very happy folks, you've done it again ??the camera and lens were easy to learn..it had been well over ten years since I had an SLR..it's surprising what you forget but the instructions were straight forward and I'm preparing for Christmas and a wedding next year so quite excited..??Terry
Cons: Nothing that I can think of..
Excellent camera. Built-in WIFI is very helpful. No need for cables to transfer pictures from camera to laptop. Freebies are very good. 2 lens filters, camera bag, cleaner.
So far so good; haven't really had time to do all I want to do with this camera; will review fully at a later date. This is my first digital camera. Have extensive use with older film cameras, so we will see which is better.
This is my first DSLR so it has been a learning experience. I like being able to use the zoom lenses especially at sports events. I am still experimenting with all the settings available compared to my Canon Sureshot which I liked very much. The DSLR will allow me to get closer shots and it will also be a cost savings. Now I can take pictures and delete if it isn't what I want, no more developed pictures of the grass or wall when accidentally pushing button at the wrong time. So far the experience has been very nice and lots of fun learning to use my new camera.
Pros: All positives so far

Overview: This Canon EOS Rebel T6 Premium Kit includes the Rebel T6 DSLR camera body, the EF-S 18-55 IS II standard zoom lens, the EF 75-300mm III telephoto zoom lens, and the Canon 100ES shoulder bag. The camera body has a standard Canon EF mount, and is compatible with Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
Viewfinder: The Canon EOS Rebel T6 uses an eye-level pentamirror viewfinder with 0.8x magnification (w/50mm lens) for approximately 95% vertical and horizontal coverage. It has a -2.5 to +0.5 diopter adjustment so you can focus the viewfinder to suit your eyesight (with or without eyeglasses). When using the self-timer or remote control, when your eye does not cover the viewfinder eyepiece, stray light may enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure when the image is captured. To prevent this, you can use the supplied eyepiece cover, attached to the neck strap, to cover the eyepiece.
3" LCD Monitor: The EOS Rebel T6 features a 3" LCD monitor with a 4:3 aspect ratio and approximately 920,000 dots for Live View composition and viewing recorded images. The LCD monitor offers a 170° wide viewing angle and 7 brightness levels to choose from.
Live View: The Live View Function enables viewing your subjects directly on the camera's 3" LCD monitor. The camera allows you to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focusing. You can choose one of two grid overlay options for the LCD screen to help you line up vertical and horizontal lines. The camera can be controlled remotely via a computer through a USB connection, or wirelessly via Wi-Fi.
18.0 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: Canon's large-area CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers approximately 18.7 million total pixels and 18.0 million effective pixels. This APS-C-sized sensor (22.3mm x 14.9mm) has the same 3:2 ratio as film cameras, enabling an effective angle of view that is 1.6x the normal EF Lens focal length.
DIGIC 4+ Image Processor: The Rebel T6 is equipped with Canon's DIGIC 4+ Image Processor. The DIGIC 4+ works with the CMOS sensor to deliver images with great detail.
Image Recording: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW formats. You can choose from the following image sizes: Large, Medium, Small 1, Small 2, and Small 3. For each resolution (except Small 2 and Small 3), you can set the compression to Fine or Normal. For RAW images, you can record only at 5184 x 3456. You can set the camera to RAW + JPEG and record a RAW image and a Large Fine JPEG image simultaneously.
Aspect Ratio: The camera's image sensor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. You can choose to record still images in 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios. This gives you the option of selecting any of the following image sizes:
|Quality||Aspect Ratio and Pixel Count|
|Large||5184 x 3456 |
|4608 x 3456 |
|5184 x 2912 |

|Small 3||720 x 480 |
|640 x 480 |

|480 x 480 |
RAW File Format: The RAW file format records the image data as captured by the camera's CMOS sensor without further processing and converts it to digital data and records it onto the card as is. RAW images can be adjusted, then developed and produced into JPEG or TIFF images using the provided software. The RAW images have a resolution of 5184 x 3456 (17.9 MP).
Recording Media: The EOS Rebel T6 records images on an SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. UHS-I (Ultra High Speed) memory cards can be used, but the camera is not compatible with the UHS-I standard. Read/write speeds will be equivalent to SD Speed Class 10 at most. The Rebel T6 is also compatible with some brands of Eye-Fi cards that feature wireless transfer of images, although their performance is not guaranteed.
Shooting Modes: The EOS Rebel T6 offers 14 different shooting modes arranged on the Mode Dial in the three zones: Creative, Basic, and Movies.
Video Snapshots: A video snapshot is a short movie clip lasting 2, 4, or 8 seconds. You can combine a series of video snapshots into an album, and save them as a single movie file. The compiled video is perfect for sharing online or displaying on an HDTV via the HDMI port.
9-Point Auto-Focus System: The EOS Rebel T6 features a 9-point auto-focus that uses cross-type points for improved tracking of moving subjects.
AF Modes: The camera employs one of 3 AF systems to let you seize every photo opportunity with fast, accurate focus:
Manual Focusing: If you choose to focus manually, you will need to set the focus mode switch on the lens from AF to MF, and turn the lens focusing ring until the subject looks sharp in the viewfinder. You can magnify the image 5x or 10x for better visibility when focusing.
ISO Speed: The Image Sensor's sensitivity to light, or the ISO Speed, can be set to suit the ambient light level. In Basic Zone modes, the ISO speed is set automatically. In other modes, you can set the ISO automatically or manually from 100 to 6400, with expansion to 12800. You can also set maximum ISO speeds of 400, 800, 1600, 3200, or 6400 for ISO Auto.
White Balance: You can choose from the following white balance settings: Auto (Ambience priority), Auto (White priority), Preset (Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten light, White fluorescent light, Flash), and Custom. In addition, the White Balance Correction and White Balance Bracketing features let you make adjustments to the color tone.
Color Space: The color space refers to the range of reproducible colors. With this camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or Adobe RGB. For normal images, sRGB is recommended. In the Basic Zone modes, sRGB will be set automatically.
Shoot by Ambience: Except in the Scene Intelligent Auto and Flash Off Basic Zone modes, you can select the ambience for shooting. You can choose from Vivid, Soft, Warm, Intense, and Cool, each at Low, Standard, or Strong effects. You can also choose Brighter or Darker, with Low, Medium, and High settings, and a Monochrome setting, with Blue, B/W, or Sepia effects.
Picture Style: By selecting a picture style you can achieve various effects matching your photographic expression or the subject. Picture Style setting is not available in Basic Zone modes, except Creative Auto. Picture Style selections include:
Creative Filters: The EOS Rebel T6 now lets you apply a filter effect while shooting. While looking at the Live View screen, you can see how the filter effects the photo. You can save the photos with and without the Creative filter applied. The types of filters include: Grainy B/W, Soft focus, Fish-eye Effect, Toy camera effect, and Miniature effect. You can also apply Creative Filters to your stored images, and save them as new images.
Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). The exposure compensation amount can be set up to +/-5 stops in 1/3-stop increments, although the indicator in the viewfinder can only display the setting up to +/-2 stops.
Auto Exposure Bracketing: With auto exposure bracketing (AEB), the camera automatically changes the exposure level up to +/-2 stops in 1/3-stop increments for three successive shots. When in Single Shooting mode, the camera will change the exposure level on three single shots (requiring three presses of the shutter release). In Continuous Shooting mode, or when shooting with the self-timer or optional remote controller, you can take three shots with one press of the shutter release, and the exposure levels will change with each shot taken.
AE Lock: AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different place from the point of focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining the desired exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted subjects.
Bulb Exposures: When Bulb is set, the shutter is open during the time you keep pressing the shutter button fully. Bulb is useful when a long exposure is necessary for capturing night scenes, fireworks, the night sky, etc. The optional RS-60E3 remote switch is also recommended for bulb exposures. It connects to the camera's 2.5mm sub-mini remote jack.
Flash: The camera's built-in retractable, auto pop-up flash with E-TTL II autoflash metering. It has the coverage of a 17mm lens angle of view. The flash takes approximately 2 seconds to recharge for the next flash. The viewfinder has an icon to let you know the flash is ready. You can set the exposure compensation for the flash to +/- 2 stops in 1/3-stop increments. The flash range varies with the ISO speed. Other flash functions include:
External Flash: In addition to the built-in flash, the EOS Rebel T6 has a hot shoe for adding optional external flash units. The camera is compatible with Canon's entire line of EX-series Speedlites, plus Macro Lites for close-ups. Canon EX-series Speedlites offer professional-quality illumination for virtually any subject. The built-in flash can work as a Master unit with Canon Speedlites with the wireless slave feature and trigger the Speedlite(s) to fire.
Optional GPS Receiver: With the optional GP-E2 GPS Receiver, location information, such as longitude, latitude, elevation, direction, and time data, can be attached to your photos.
Metering Modes: You can select from the following metering modes:
Continuous Shooting Mode: In Continuous Shooting mode, you can shoot up to about 3 frames per second. The maximum number of shots in a single burst will vary with the image quality setting:
|Image Quality Setting||Maximum Burst |
(8 GB SDHC Card)
|RAW + JPEG (Large/Fine)||5|
Self-Timer: The camera will record an image following a preset time delay after pressing the shutter release. The self-timer lamp and beeper will indicate a countdown before the picture is taken. You can choose from the following self-timer modes:
Auto Rotation: Vertical shots can be rotated automatically so that they are displayed upright during playback.
Image Review: The image can be displayed on the LCD monitor immediately after you shoot. The review time can be set to off (not displayed), 2 seconds, 4 seconds, 8 seconds, or Hold, which keeps the image displayed on the LCD monitor until the camera is focused again.
Slide Show: You can view all images on the memory card one after another with the Auto Playback function (slide show). You can set the time each image is displayed on the LCD monitor to 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, or 20 seconds. You can also select which images to display: all images, images by date, images by folder, movies only, stills only, or by rating.
Index Display: This feature allows you to view four (2 x 2) or nine (3 x 3) images at once on the LCD monitor so that you can search for an image quickly.
Image Magnification: When viewing a still picture in single image playback mode, you can magnify the image from 1.5x to 10x. While the image is magnified, you can scroll anywhere around the image.
Rotating Images: You can rotate an image by 90° or 270° clockwise in the LCD monitor.
PictBridge Printing: Using the supplied USB cable, you can connect this camera directly to a PictBridge compliant printer. PictBridge is a standard that allows you to connect a PictBridge compliant camera directly to a PictBridge compliant printer and make prints, regardless of brand.
DPOF Print Settings: On the memory card, you can select which image or images you want to print and how many copies you want. This is convenient for printing images all at once, on optional Canon direct print function compliant printers, on PictBridge compliant printers, or at participating photo labs.
HDMI Outputs: The camera is equipped with a mini-HDMI jack (Type C) which allows you to connect the camera to an HDTV.
Digital Terminal: The Digital terminal (Mini-B USB) allows you to connect the camera to your computer or printer via the supplied USB cable for downloading the recorded images and movies, or for printing photos.
Remote: A 2.5mm sub-minijack is provided for use with the optional RS-60E3 Remote Switch. The wired remote switch has a 2' cord, and is recommended for long exposures and bulb shooting.
Battery: The EOS Rebel T6 operates on the supplied LP-E10 Lithium-Ion battery (7.4V, 860 mAh, 6.36Wh). Battery performance decreases when used in temperatures below 32° F. The battery can be charged in the supplied LC-E10 battery charger in approximately 2 hours. Typical battery life for the LP-E10 battery is as follows:

Note: The Auto Power Off function will not activate in Auto Playback Mode.
Optional AC Power: With the optional ACK-E10 AC adapter kit, you can connect the camera to a household power outlet and not worry about the battery becoming exhausted.
Wireless Functions: The EOS Rebel T6's wireless LAN functions let you perform a range of tasks wirelessly:
Compatibility: The Canon Camera Connect app, required for connecting the camera to a smartphone, is compatible with iOS version 7.0 or later and Android devices version 4.0 or later.
NFC Function: The Rebel T6 supports NFC (Near-Field Communication) which enables you to connect the camera to a smartphone or Connect Station by touching them together. While playing back images, you can send images to the smartphone by touching an NFC-enabled smartphone to the camera. NFC-enabled smartphones operate on the Android platform running OS version 4.0 or later, and are labeled with the NFC "N-mark." The camera's "N-mark" is located on the bottom of the camera body.
Lens: This EOS Rebel T6 Premium Kit comes with two lenses: the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II standard telephoto lens, and the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III telephoto lens. The 75-300mm EF lens is a full frame lens, and when mounted on the camera with an APS-C sensor, the effective focal length will be 120mm-480mm.
Image Stabilizer (IS): The 18-55mm IS II lens has a lens shift type Image Stabilizer. With the Image Stabilizer turned on, you can obtain sharp, natural-looking pictures in dim lighting without using flash or a tripod. The Image Stabilizer is turned on/off through a switch on the barrel of the lens.
Note: The camera does NOT have the Image Stabilizer feature when the included EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens, or another non-IS lens is mounted.
Auto/Manual Focus Modes: To shoot in auto-focus mode, you must set the focus mode switch on the lens to "AF." To manually focus the camera, you must set the switch on the camera barrel to "MF," and focus by turning the focusing ring.
