<p> </p>
<p><strong>MELVILLE, N.Y., February 5, 2015 –</strong> Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of two new DSLR cameras to its popular EOS Rebel lineup: the EOS Rebel T6s Digital SLR camera, and the EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR camera. Featuring a newly developed 24.2 megapixel Canon CMOS imaging sensor, both cameras deliver the highest resolution available amongst EOS models with an APS-C format sensor. Additionally, the cameras feature built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC™ capabilities – a first for the Canon EOS Rebel system – making snapping and sharing high-quality, treasured images seamless.</p>
<p>“The Canon EOS Rebel series is one of the most popular lines of DSLR cameras on the market, and we are proud to continue to innovate and upgrade this line with features such as wireless connectivity and improved image capture capabilities,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As the popularity of this line grows with consumers, we’re excited to launch the EOS Rebel T6s as our new flagship camera in the Rebel line, as well as have another budget-conscious offering in the line with the Rebel T6i.”</p>
<p>With multiple features most commonly found in advanced amateur cameras, the EOS Rebel T6s is designed for photography enthusiasts, or those who are already experienced with entry-level cameras who want to take high-quality photos and videos, and look for more advanced features and functions. For more casual photography needs, or for users looking to purchase their first DSLR camera, the EOS Rebel T6i camera prioritizes affordability, without sacrificing basic SLR performance attributes like quick shutter response, and compatibility with Canon’s impressive line of interchangeable lenses and accessories.</p>
<p><strong>Outstanding Image Capture Features</strong>

The new EOS Rebel cameras have an extensive ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) to accommodate shooting situations ranging from bright sunny days at the beach to dimly lit indoor dance recitals. The high-performance DIGIC 6 image processor helps provide outstanding image quality and speed, so pictures are clear and sharp.</p>
<p>Building on the image capture functionality of their predecessors, the EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras feature Canon’s new Hybrid CMOS AF III image sensor-embedded autofocus system, which allows for high levels of speed and accuracy when capturing Full HD video or high-resolution photos in Live View. This is particularly useful when capturing children playing sports, or animals in the wild, when it’s imperative to get the shot at the exact moment action is happening. Helping photographers capture those special moments, the cameras have high-speed continuous shooting up to five frames-per-second (fps). For photographers who prefer to compose their images through a viewfinder, the new EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras have a 19-point all cross-type AF system that allows for superb autofocus, as well as focus area selection modes.</p>
<p>Brand-new to the EOS Rebel line, the cameras feature built-in wireless capabilities, which allow users to wirelessly transfer images and videos with ease to compatible smartphones and tablets through Canon’s newly updated and free Camera Connect app.<span class="green">2</span> Images and videos can also be shared wirelessly to a wide range of popular social networking sites through Canon iMAGE GATEWAY. <span class="green">3</span> The camera’s built-in NFC (Near Field Communication)<span class="green">4</span> allows quick and simple pairing to a compatible Android device, or devices that support NFC like the new Canon Connect Station CS100 photo and video storage and sharing device. The built-in Wi-Fi functionality also allows users to wirelessly print their images to any compatible printer, like the PIXMA MG7520 or PIXMA iP8720.</p>
<p>With an intuitive design that allows for an optimal photographic experience, the new EOS Rebel cameras have a three-inch Vari-Angle Touch Screen Clear View LCD monitor with approximately 1,040,000 dots. This design enables flexible positioning for high or low framed shots, as well as clear viewing even when outdoors in the sunlight. Additionally, the cameras feature the latest version of Canon’s EOS scene analysis system, which helps photographers capture beautiful images in a wider range of situations by detecting near-infrared light and flickering light sources. Also new to the entire EOS system, both models feature color tone detection, which helps ensure individuals in photographs are properly focused and/or exposed by adjusting both autofocus and exposure metering.</p>
<p><strong>Full HD Video Capture</strong>

The EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras feature EOS Movie mode which captures Full HD 1080p resolution video up to 30 fps in MP4 format for high quality shooting and easy movie sharing on select social networking sites. Manual exposure control, digital zoom and an external stereo microphone jack are provided for advanced users using the EOS Rebel T6s.</p>
<p><strong>Expanded Creative Functionality</strong>

Allowing for full creative control, the new EOS Rebel cameras offer creative filters available as presets for photos and movies. These filters can be displayed in real time during Live View shooting, providing an easy way for users to enhance their creative work. Users can further expand their artistic abilities right from the camera with Creative Filters such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect and Monochrome mode.  Fisheye Effect gives images a panoramic look and feel, Toy Camera Effect adds a grainy look to soften photos, illustrating a vintage appearance and with Monochrome mode, photos can either have black-and-white, blue or sepia tones, to display a more classic appearance.</p>
<p><strong>Advanced Features & Capabilities</strong>

For photographers who desire more advanced features, the EOS Rebel T6s is the first EOS Rebel class DSLR camera to feature a top LCD panel, Quick Control Dial, Horizontal Level and built-in HDR movie capabilities. The new camera is also the first model in the EOS Rebel series to feature Servo AF in Live View, allowing continuous tracking of moving subjects during burst mode shooting sequences.</p>
<p><strong>Availability</strong>

The EOS Rebel T6s Digital SLR camera and EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR camera are scheduled to be available at the end of April 2015. The estimated retail price of the EOS Rebel T6s is $849.99 for the body only, and $1,199.00 bundled with an EF-S 18-135 STM lens. The EOS Rebel T6i has an estimated retail price of $749.99 for the body only, $899.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55 STM lens, and $1,099.00 bundled with an EF-S 18-135 STM lens.</p>

Have rebels always been this expensive? I think you'd have to be crazy to get the T6s over a used 70D, 7D, or 5D Mark II.

That is MSRP, at Canon website, T5i kit is $859.99, so the T6i price is reasonable, market price will be lower as usual.

For these new rebels, the naming is so confusing, in US is T6i & T6s, in Japan is kiss X8i and 8000D, the other is 750D and 760D. :eek:

So no DPAF. Looks like Canon is using that to differentiate the prosumer models. My guess is the 6D II will get it next and then maybe the 5D IV. I love DPAF on my 70D.

Next will be 1DXII and 5D IV my guess.

I don't think 6DII gets DPAF, if it doesn't move upmarket. But then again if it does maybe there will be one cheaper FF camera? Anyhow I believe the "low-end" FF canon won't have DPAF.

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS Rebel T6i & Rebel T6s

"budget-conscious" ?

The difference between the two models is only $50 MSRP. It'll be interesting to see what the street price difference is.

Also wondering if this new "rebel plus" price bracket is intended to sound the death knell for the XXD mid-rage line...

Digital video zoom/crop? The kind of feature you'd think the professional APS-C Wildlife & Birding camera would carry! It doesn't though... Into its second generation and the 7D series still has me thinking "yeah but this cheaper model seems a more useful purchase.." - I'd say it's "Apples & Oranges" but they're Cameras & Cameras and somebody, somewhere is deciding on their make-up and omissions ;)

$50 would be quite an advanced degree of budget consciousness, aye - but isn't it $150 difference? If I pick one up it'll likely be around Summer and closer to the current Asian market price via the Grey Market - which has proved to be around 60% of the scary UK prices on higher end models, so around £340/$500 would be nice - and I hope Canon's concerned spies are reading these early "yah but how cheap on the Grey Market?!" discussions, even at pre-release ;)

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS Rebel T6i & Rebel T6s

I recently made the decision to buy a new camera this year. I know there are differences, but to me the T6i and it's specs questions how relevant the 70D is now, especially for video capture.

For photography, I'd spend the extra money and get the 7D MII, not the 70D.

Interesting. I was thinking who would buy the T6s or T6i over the 70D? I guess to each his own. What specs do you find superior on the T6i?

Looking at the spec sheets, Canon have chosen to give the M3 1/3 Stop ISO increments but these things are still stuck with Full Stops... Taking away more worthwhile Gain control and forcing videographers to work with less desirable apertures or shutter speeds doesn't really scream "I'm the ultimate Video dSLR!" - though like with the SL1/100D in photo mode (I'm unsure re: video), the in-between ISOs might be available in Auto-ISO... being a weird "more-flexibility but it's not your choice how it's used" compromise..

Too bad Canon has changed again the battery. I own the 550d and have a bunch of LP-E8 but it seems the 750/760d have LP-E17.

Not only are the batteries different, but the new ones have lower capacity.
