    The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera includes new automatic modes for beginner photographers. The camera’s new “white priority” Auto White Balance setting enables photographers to take photos with a more neutral tone when shooting under incandescent lighting. The Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accessing faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast and camera stability. Then it chooses the exposure and enhancements best for that scene so photographers can focus on composition. The new ‘Food Mode’ enhances the color and brightness of food images while simultaneously making the images ready to share. Other fully automatic exposure modes include portrait, night portrait, landscape, sports, and close-up. In addition to the automatic modes, the new Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera provides complete manual exposure and focus controls plus RAW image output.

    More features of the Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR:
    • 18.0 Megapixel Canon CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and high-performance DIGIC 4+ Image Processor for excellent image quality and speedy operation.
    • Continuous shooting up- to- three frames per second (fps), with predictive autofocus to keep every image sharp, even moving subjects.
    • ISO 100–6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for shooting in bright light and low light.
    • Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC connectivity for easy sharing to smart devices, social media sites and the Canon Connect Station CS100 device.
    • 9?point AF system (including one center cross?type AF point) and AI Servo AF for impressive autofocus performance with accurate results.
    • High-performance Optical Viewfinder to help facilitate quick and accurate focusing by firmly framing and capturing the subject.
    • Large, 3.0-inch LCD monitor with 920,000 dots for easy viewing and reviewing.
    • Full HD video mode for high quality, video up to 1080p resolution with auto and manual focusing.
    • Creative filters such as Fisheye, Toy Camera, Miniature, and Soft Focus

  2. Food mode???
     
  3. For people who can't eat at a restaurant without taking photos of their meal for Instagram. You know the type.

    So what does this do differently from the last batch of Rebels that seemed exactly the same as the ones before?
     
  4. Revamped EOS 550D? Nothing wrong with it, just a low priced body in order to earn some money or to keep the market share. This is not the market segment where innovations are introduced.
     
  5. You know the type.​
    Well, color me out of touch. I have heard that people do this but I don't know anyone personally that does nor have I ever witnessed this while eating out. It must be popular if they now make a camera mode specifically for it. I don't have much time for Instagram so perhaps that's why I'm not up on this practice. I can understand shooting something special you cooked or trying your hand at illustrative food photography but just shooting a plate of food before you eat it seems strange and if I were notified of such a posting why would I care? But I'm an old geezer, what do I know. If it helps sell cameras, gaud bless.

    You know the type.​

    Yes, the type that got interested in photography and are using a camera to photograph things that interest them. Obviously disparaging remarks are the best way to deal with these newcomers.

    BTW, most people that photograph in restaurants do it with their phones. They do it to share with their friends, to post on review sites, to save ideas for their own cooking. Seems like a positive social activity to me. Sure beats spending time on web forums questioning how other people enjoy photography.
     
  7. Sorry you found my query offensive, Jeff.
    color me out of touch.... I'm not up on this practice.... what do I know.​
    I honestly didn't know this was such a popular activity and in re-reading my post I see nothing disparaging except highlighting my own lack of understanding. Thank you for your charitable clarification.
    Sure beats spending time on web forums questioning how other people enjoy photography.​
    I would think a photography forum is exactly the right place to learn and discuss how other people enjoy photography and how I spend my time is none of your business.
     
  8. I think the food photography thing is kinda cute. Kinda like how dogs sniff each other's butt.
    Dog 1: "Wow! You ate something really good recently!"
    Dog 2: *fart*
     
  9. Hi Guys,​
    Well come, color me out of touch. We have heard that people do this but we don't know anyone personally that does nor have He ever witnessed this while eating out. It must be popular if they now make a camera mode specifically for it. We don't have much time for Instagram so perhaps that's why I'm not up on this practice. We can understand shooting something special you cooked or trying your hand at illustrative food photography but just shooting a plate of food before you eat it seems strange ​
     
  10. Amazing announcement-- and reanimated all the way from March 2016!
    The new defaults make it look like Photo.net is even more behind the times....:(
     
  11. They have that one at Cost Co. I picked it up but the battery was dead and the lens was broken and flopping about.
     
  12. So, one Cost Co has one broken demo model? And that tells us... ? No doubt Canon sold thousands of these, and no doubt the vast majority is still working perfectly fine.
