Fascinated with photography? Love clicking people or the scenarios around? Planning to give some one a camera? Have someone close who is very much interested in photography? Whatever the reason may be, but something as technical as a camera should always be bought with enough research.
Photography is one such field that your talent matters the most but the kind of camera you are using, matters a lot too. This line clearly explains that when you are buying something for a field you are passionate about, you should surely be careful before buying that equipment and be sure that the thing you are settling for will be helpful for the purpose you are buying it for.
There are now a lot of camera available in the market and they are not just many in number, they are also many in kind. Gone are those days when the most famous camera would be the camera with a roll and how your photographs have turned out will only be know when the negatives of the rolls are processed by a professional, developed in a dark room and is delivered to you. It does not work that way anymore, in fact these cameras are now very rare and are preserved as antiques or used by people who believe that there are times when old cameras bring out the best in them, or just want to use them because they want to experience the usage of all kinds of cameras.
With technology developing and everything turning digital, cameras have turned digital too and thus have become easy to use and handle and also are widely available. Don’t get confused by the words easy to use, it depends on the kind of camera you are using. They might be very difficult to handle in the very first place. Of all the cameras available, lets talk about the cameras which have become most popular in the recent times and are the love of professional photographers almost everywhere, DSLRs.
DSLR camera is an acronym for digital single reflex lens camera. The major thing these cameras have become the star of the photography industry is not just the clarity and sharpness, but the fact that these cameras gives the photographers to change the kind of lens they want to use. This gives the photographer the freedom to click any kind of picture they want and use the different kinds of angles which were earlier considered almost impossible.
With the variety of DSLRs have come up, the range of lenses that can be used have also increased drastically and thus being the reason why any person who is extremely passionate about photography, would select a DSLR and would buy the kind of lens which is appropriate for the kind of photography that person is interested in. the thing to catch about these DSLRs is that these cameras are very expensive and thus needs to be bought after putting in a lot of thought and also after being aware of their technical features.
Today, I bring to you, review of one camera which is made by Canon. The model number of this camera is “Canon Rebel T6i”. This model is know as the Canon 750D around the US. The companion for this model is the Rebel T6s, or which is also called Canon 760D. Both of these models have a 24.2 MP APS-CCmos sensor, the model’s predecessor was 18 MP. This comes coupled with 7560 pixel RGB and IP metering sensor which is helpful in a more accurate metering. Though both of these models, Rebel T6s and Rebel T6i are very similar, there are a few features which make both of them very distinct.
This model is Hybrid CMOS AF III uses sensor based phase detection points which facilitates increased focus speed and accuracy in live view. The manufacture of the camera, Canon, claims that the performance of Hybrid CMOS III is very close to that of Dual Pixel AF, which is found in models EOS 70D and 7D II.
This model, Rebel T6i uses the same 10-point phase detection auto focus as the model 70D, which is a very vast improvement over the 9-point auto focus system that prevails in the T5i. Although, the ISO range of Rebel T6i is same as T5I, which is 100-12800 and is expandable up to 25600.
Nothing down the key features of this model:
24.2 mega pixel APS-C CMOS sensor
- Wi-Fi with NFC
- 10-point autofocus system
- Three inch fully articulating touchscreen LCD
- 5 fps continuous shooting
- 1080/30p video
- 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor with skin tone detection
- 19 point autofocus system
- Hybrid CMOS auto focus III focus system for the live view.
The biggest difference between this model Rebel T6i and its predecessor T5i is the sensor. Another major difference is the addition of the wifi feature with active NFC. If you have a phone which is NFC-equipped, you can easily connect the camera to your phone and if the phone is not NFC equipped, there is not too much to do to connect to the phone, once the camera is paired up you can easily transfer and share the photos clicked with your camera.
The maximum shutter speed of this model is 1/4000 sec and ranges up to 30 second. The similarity between this model and its predecessor is that both of them have a fully working 3 inch touchscreen LED, 5 fps continuous shooting and 1080/30p video. The camera takes up tp five continuous shots per second.
The camera does not fall in to a very heavy range and is available under Rs50,000. Just the body of the camera, that means without any lens, the camera is available for Rs46,950, this price includes the charge of battery and the battery charger. With the basic 18-55 mm lens, this model is available at the price of Rs50,950. The range is again variable, depending on the kind of lens that you want. The model is compatible with a variety of lenses.
