The Canon EOS 750D
(Rebel T6i, as it’s branded Stateside) succeeds the EOS 700D/Rebel T5i introduced
in 2013. It features a new 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with an ISO range
of 100-12800 (expandable to ISO 25600), as well as 5fps continuous shooting.
Canon has also
implemented its DIGIC 6 image processor which supersedes the DIGIC 5 unit found
in the 700D, and the new model also receives an upgraded 19-point autofocus
system pulled from the EOS 70D. The 750D’s exposure metering system is new,
too, as is the inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC pairing.
Externally the 750D is
almost identical to its predecessor, featuring a 3-inch 1040k-dot LCD display
that’s both touch-sensitive and able to articulate. The camera’s physical
control layout is also very similar to the 700D. However, if you like the look
of the top-panel LCD display and rear control wheel on the EOS 70D, the new
760D introduced alongside the 750D includes these features, but in every other
respect is identical to the 750D.
On first handling the
Canon EOS 750D you’ll be hard-pressed to tell it from the old 700D. Both
cameras share a near-identical case design and control layout, and their size
and weight are also closely matched. The 750D is marginally narrower at 131.9mm
and slightly shallower at 77.8mm, though its 100.7mm height is all of 0.9mm
more than the 700D. Despite these similarities, Canon has managed to bring the
ready-to-shoot weight of the 750D body down to 555g – 25g lighter than the 700D
and 10g lighter than the 760D.
The mode dial options
are typical of an entry-level DSLR, including the standard Program Auto, Shutter
Priority (Tv), Aperture Priority (Av) and full Manual control. Canon groups
these four modes into what it terms the ‘Creative Zone’, separating them from
options like scene mode pre-sets. There isn’t a bewildering selection of these
pre-sets though, as Canon has pared the available options down to Kids, Food,
Candlelight, Night Portrait, Handheld Night Scene and HDR Backlight Control.
The latter is particularly useful, capturing three consecutive shots of the
same scene to significantly broaden the camera’s dynamic range for more
realistic images in high-contrast environments.
