Canon EOS 750D (Rebel T6i) sensor review: First Canon APS-C format camera to offer 12-stop dynamic rangeBy Kevin Carter - Thursday July 16 2015 Sensor Review
Announced alongside the slightly better-equipped EOS 760D (Rebel T6s in the US), the 750D shares many of its sibling’s features, including a new 24.2-Mpix CMOS sensor and hybrid AF system, but it is aimed at beginners and has a price tag to match. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Specifications and Features
Announced earlier in the year as the replacement to the entry-level 18-Mpix EOS 650D (known as the Rebel T5i in the US), the EOS 750D (Rebel T6i) shares many of the same features and body as the similar-looking EOS 760D (Rebel T6s) launched at the same time. The similarities don’t end there. Both models use a 24.2-Mpix APS-C size CMOS sensor with a higher pixel count than their predecessors and other current models in the range. By contrast, both the EOS 70D and high-end EOS 7D Mk II feature 20.2 Mpix sensors.
One other advancement over those two models is the new DIGIC 6 processor with an ISO range of 100-12,800 (with expansion to 25,600). The EOS 750D includes an updated Hybrid CMOS AF III system with a separate 19-point phase-detection sensor located in the mirror-box for viewfinder operation, and image sensor-based phase detection pixels to aid AF performance in Live View that Canon claims is close in performance to the dual-pixel AF of the 70D and 7D Mk II. Add an improved 7560-pixel color-sensitive sensor for more accurate metering and WiFi with NFC, all while sharing the 3-inch fully-articulated LCD touchscreen, 5fps continuous shooting and full HD/30/25p video of its predecessor, it’s quite clearly one of the more significant upgrades in recent times.
Finally, the new camera measures 5.2 x 4.0 x 3.1" / 13.2 x 10.1 x 7.8 cm and weighs 19.58 oz / 555 g, body only. It’s available now at a body-only price of $749 (USD), around $100 less than the EOS 760D (T6s).
