The Canon EOS T6i and T6s (known as the 760D and 750D outside of U.S.) are powerful new cameras intended for amateurs to semi-professionals who want to jump into photography with the control and capabilities of a DSLR.
While the camera manual explains what the camera can do, it doesn’t show exactly how to use the camera to create great images! That’s where Canon EOS T6i / T6s: From Snapshots to Great Shots comes in. Starting with the top ten things users need to know about the camera, author Jeff Revell carefully guides readers through the operating features. Readers get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and end of chapter assignments.
From Snapshots to Great Shots is a beautiful how-to photography series that provides the perfect blend of instruction, inspiration, and reference for specific camera models and photography concepts. Featuring a clear, elegant design; outstanding images that educate and inspire; and a friendly, accessible voice, this series helps photographers get great shots every time they pick up their camera.
DP Review has strongly endorsed this new Rebel camera system, which represents a major upgrade from the T5i camera. Providing a complete body and lens system, both the T6i and T6s are made available as kits with zoom lenses, and include many feature upgrades, perhaps most significantly, a new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor (up from 18MP on the T5i / 700D) coupled with a new 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor for more accurate metering. Also, for the first time for the Rebel line, both cameras offer built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and NFC.
