Read more about the new Canon Rebel T6 after the jump:

Canon’s latest entry DSLR includes an 18 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor measuring 22.3mm x 14.9mm and a DIGIC 4+ image processor.
The Rebel T6 comes equipped with a built-in 3-inch 920K-dot LCD monitor, and also has a high-performance optical viewfinder.

Other features include: a 9-point Auto Focus system with center cross-type point, an ISO low-light range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), 3 fps burst shooting, Scene Intelligent Auto Mode and basic+ and creative auto shooting modes.

The Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast and whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod. It then chooses the exposure and enhancements for the optimal image quality. The feature was designed to simplify the picture taking process while allowing photographers to concentrate on composing images without worrying about the correct settings.

A new “Food Mode”’ was added to the mode dial for “foodies” or bloggers who would like to easily capture the best images of the food dishes. Canon said this mode enhances the color and brightness of the food images while at the same time making the images ready to share. Other fully automatic exposure modes include portrait, night portrait, landscape, sports, and close-up.

For the first time, the entry camera adds Wi-Fi connectivity with enabling fast uploading to the Internet and social media on the go.
