      +42 for the most effective and time saving response 😀

  • Eddy Kamera

    Wow, this is exciting… hahahaha.

    • Les

      I take it you never used an entry-level camera? I guess it’s for those less fortunate than you. Let them eat cake!

      • BP2012

        5 years ago Canon introduced entry-level camera with the same specs. They obviously don’t want to change te winning strategy.

      • Athanasius Kirchner

        The entry level moved upwards in 2013. You can now get an A6000, K-S2 or a D3300 for the same money that will wipe the floor with the POS T6. I suspect this will be the last of that line.

        • Les

          Yes, but you can typically get the Rebel for $100 or $150 less than those two, lens included. That’s a significant chunk of change in this category.

          I’m not sure the target user should care about the difference between 18 and 24 MP. They are both sufficient for print and web use.

          • Ethan

            How about 11fps, 1080p 60 fps with video auto focus and smaller size?

          • Tsais

            Well, if that was the only difference, sure. But it isn’t, not even close!

  • blp

    Damn… Canon is so good at pushing innovation. No wonder it gets all the rewards for the best camera of the year. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

    • Tsais

      you are so cruel 🙂

      • blp

        I hope this explains

  • Ethan

    Sony a68 seems like a bargain!

    3fps, blazing fast!

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    Got to get rid of that old inventory somehow.
    Hmm now I wonder what a 3, 18megapixel cmos camera would be able to achieve

  • Chaitanya

    Still using that 5 year old 18MP sensor? Atleast Canon should have used the 24MP sensor from 750/760D to make this camera exciting.

    • blp

      why fix it if its not broken or sells really well…. *canon logic*

      • Eddy Kamera

        This one uses logic+.

  • Mike Gordon


  • Steven Grueber

    I don’t get it … the US has had a T6i and T6s for several months. AKA 750D and 760D. So, is this newer than that?

    • Vertex

      you don´t get it .. right

      • Tsais

        Seeing a few posts from you and its all clear: shill or fanboi.

        You know you should not love or be a fan of any corporation. Its a degradation of human consciousness.

  • Nacho

    same as the t2i relased in 08/02/2010… loooong time ago

  • WillWeaverRVA

    So basically this can be read as “you will soon be able to get a Canon Rebel T5 for about $100 less” since this is pretty much the exact same camera.

    If you’re in the market for an entry-level camera and you want a Canon, just get a T5i instead. It’s got better specs and it’ll probably still be cheaper than this.

    • Or a T2i, or a T3i, or a T4i, it honestly doesn’t matter. It’d be like arguing over whether the Ford Taurus from ’98 was better than the Taurus from ’97. It’s a car. If that’s your type of car just buy one.

  • Tsais

    Re-badging old products is nothing new…

    Nvidia does it every year.

    The only difference between Canon and Nvidia is, that Nvidia actually does bring a new architecture every other year, which is usually at least a 40% improvement in almost every area of their previous product.

    Canon seems to have replaced all their engineers with accountants.

    • Vertex

      you are clueless….

      • Tsais

        I wish I was… and you wish too

  • Vertex

    this is the cheapest entry level… price dictates everything here.
    in america this will sell very well. americans love DSLR´s.
    canon makes such watered down entry level models and sells them like sliced bread.
    this is not a camera for people who visit photograpy forums on the internet.
    don´t kid yourself.. this will make canon a profit no matter what the internet noobs say.

    you have to start looking at products from a company viewpoint. otherwise some decicison will never make sense to you.

    • Tsais

      Ah, now its the company viewpoint 🙂 Go ahead, feel free to buy a bunch of them to help out Canon.

      Too funny. Still doesn’t change the fact that its the same product with a new badge.
      And even a lot of those people you call “noobs” (what, are you 14 years old?) are familiar with 4K video because they have it on their phone and enjoy pulling great stills of their kids from the 4K footage.
