Canon EOS Rebel T6s Camera Review

The Canon EOS Rebel T6s represents a new category for Canon in the entry level lineup. This camera is a twin to the Canon EOS Rebel T6i, but adds a few new features for the Rebel lineup. The first is a top LCD screen that shows minimal shooting info. While it is not as detailed as the next level cameras, it is certainly welcome on a Rebel. Another new feature on the T6s is the second command wheel, again usually only found on the higher priced models. The last feature is the locking mode dial, which is a nice feature as well. The Canon EOS Rebel T6s is slightly larger and more expensive than the Canon EOS Rebel T6i.

What I Like

  • Top LCD
  • Dual command wheels
  • locking mode dial
  • improved Autofocus system
  • size
  • weight
  • battery grip option
  • articulated LCD

What I Don't Like

  •  Viewfinder small and dim, but no worse than other cameras with similar viewfinders in its class
  • No GPS built in
  • transferring images via WiFi not as easy as it should be

The Bottom Line

I have owned several Rebel series cameras over the years, starting with the very first Digital Rebel and have always been pleased with their value and performance and the new Canon EOS Rebel T6s is no exception. This new body is a welcome addition to the Rebel lineup with the addition of the second command wheel and top mounted LCD screen.

There are now three Rebel options in the T6 family, starting with the least expensive Rebel T6, the middle sibling in the Rebel T6i and this upper model. So which one should you get? The biggest driving factor in this decision will be budget. If you can afford the T6s, then it is the camera I would recommend, but if your budget only allows you to afford the Rebel T6, that camera will suit you well, also. The T6i is a great compromise between the T6s and the T6.
