Since then, the EOS Rebel T6s has been succeeded by the EOS 77D, which features an updated sensor, enhanced autofocus (AF), and overall performance improvements over its predecessor. Outside the United States, the EOS 760D is known as the EOS Rebel T6s.
Canon has released two new cameras, the 750D and the 760D, as improvements to its EOS 700D (EOS Rebel T5i) model, a move that runs the danger of causing consumer confusion in the market (reviewed here). DSLRs that belong to Canon’s “beginners” series include the 700D, the 750D, and the 760D. The 760D is at the very top of the group, although it is ranked lower than the Canon 70D, which is the model that occupies the very lowest spot in the spectrum of “enthusiast-level” cameras.
Because the 760D has a few additional features that impact its handling, it is more suitable for experienced photographers or those who want to flex their creative muscles than the 750D, which is why it is known as the Rebel T6s in US territories. The 760D has very similar specifications to the 750D.
Canon EOS Rebel T6s Build Quality
The Canon 750D and 760D have somewhat different physical appearances, but their internal workings are fundamentally the same. The 760D has an additional LCD panel on its top plate that displays information in monochrome. This is the distinction that stands out the most between the two cameras.
This displays vital information such as the ISO setting (which controls the camera’s sensitivity), the battery level, the exposure level, the shutter speed, and the aperture. It may appear to be less critical when using a camera that has a screen that can be adjusted to different angles, but it is still helpful and consumes less power than the primary screen.
Canon EOS Rebel T6s Performance
It seems like Canon has been utilizing a sensor with 18 million pixels in their APS-C format SLRs for an eternity. Some prospective purchasers have been attracted to the 24Mp devices included in Nikon’s most recent SLRs. At the very least, in principle, having a higher pixel count allows you to record a more significant amount of minute detail. The disadvantage is that there is an elevated possibility of noise.
But with the Canon 760D and 750D, Canon has struck an excellent balance between these cameras. Both can resolve a high degree of detail far more significant than what can be taken by the 18-megapixel sensor found in the 700D.
The noise is also nicely controlled, although it is interesting to notice that the resolving power of the 760D is not entirely on par with that of the 24-megapixel Nikon D5500. The 20-megapixel Pentax K-S2 is another close contender in the resolution stakes; similar to the D5500; it does not have an anti-aliasing filter placed over the sensor, which undoubtedly helps it in this regard.
Canon EOS Rebel T6s Image Quality
Canon’s choice to remain with their tried-and-true 18MP device for the EOS 1300D is disappointing in light of Nikon’s decision to include a 24MP sensor in the D3200 in 2012. However, in terms of image quality in the real world, it can still give good results, even though they are not particularly striking.
Up to ISO 1600, the Canon EOS 1300D was able to resolve a significant amount of detail when equipped with our 18-55mm IS STM lens. However, the image quality at high ISO, the sensor, and the Digic 4 image processor is starting to show their age. At ISO 3200, there is a discernible loss of clarity, colors become blotchy, and color speckling is seen in dark regions, which is seldom seen from comparable cameras at this sensitivity setting.
If you increase the ISO to 6400, you will notice that the color speckling is now noticeable in some low-light photographs, even when the picture is reduced to 25% of its original size. As a result, it is simple to understand why Canon does not advertise the 1300D’s high ISO 12800 setting. At this sensitivity, there is an ugly quantity of noise, and Canon does not want to attract attention. On the other hand, if you install a lens that is either stabilized or has a big aperture, there will be very few situations in which sensitivities greater than ISO 3200 are necessary.
Although the 63-zone exposure metering of the EOS 1300D is capable of producing precise exposures in a wide variety of lighting settings, the comparatively limited dynamic range of the sensor may cause high-contrast photographs to seem gloomy with murky shadow areas.
On the opposite side, highlights are not likely to be overexposed. However, it may be advantageous to sacrifice some highlight detail by dialing in one stop of positive exposure compensation to generate a brighter picture overall.
The EOS 1300D’s muted color reproduction will not appeal to everyone’s aesthetic preferences. This is especially true if you’re used to the more vibrant color palette of recent smartphone cameras. As a result, you may need to customize the camera’s color preferences.

Canon EOS Rebel T6s Verdict
It has been found that sensors with 24 million pixels are popular, and there is a solid explanation for this: they offer a decent balance between the size of the image and the size of the file, as well as detail and noise. When you increase the number of pixels to 36 million, the files you create will put additional strain on your computer’s processing power since they will take up more space on your memory cards and hard drives.
Due to the necessity of maintaining noise levels below acceptable limits, the only cameras now available with 36-megapixel sensors are full-frame versions such as the Sony A7R and the Nikon D810. With the NX1 and NX500 cameras, which share the same 28-megapixel back-illuminated sensor, Samsung now holds the record for the most pixels in an APS-C type camera.
