Our Review of the Canon EOS 750D
The Canon EOS 750D is a DSLR that offers simple operation and great image quality. This model is also known under the name EOS Rebel T6i in the North America.
It is ideal for those who are looking for a reasonably affordable, reliable and functional camera to take pictures of their kids, friends, pet as well as vacation snapshots.
Also, those who are keen to learn the advanced principles of digital photography should consider this a great Canon camera.
As for the photo quality, the EOS 750D doesn’t compare with competitors, but it’s still one of the best-selling models on the market.
It is slightly faster than the previous Canon models regarding the back-display shooting and viewfinder and has built in Wi-Fi connectivity.
This makes it better than its predecessors and more attractive for consumers.
There are many improved performances, such as 19 autofocus areas at first place, which was only 9 at its predecessor. On the other hand, it takes a long time to focus and shoot – even 0.9 second.
However, other functions are very fast.
For instance, it is pretty slow while focusing in dark light conditions, but fast in both dim and bright light – takes only 0.3 seconds to focus and take a photo.
The same time is required for the raw and two sequential JPEG shots. If you turn on the flash, it will take about 1.2 seconds for two sequential shots.
This camera can make 30 JPEG photos at 5 frames per one second, which is quite good for the kids-and-pets photographers.
As for the raw continuous shooting, this model is a bit disappointing because it is satisfyingly quick when shooting 6 shots (at 6fps), and then suddenly falls to 2.4fps.
The good thing is that you can continue taking photos, more than 30, at that slower speed.
Live View is higher quality compared to the previous Rebels, however, it is still slow for the professionals.

As mentioned above, Canon EOS 750D is not in the class of the best digital cameras when it comes to the quality of photos. Also, there are fewer details in shadows and highlights.
On the other hand, the T6i’s image and video quality are fairly good in bright light.
Although it makes a noise while shooting, this is not the main issue of this camera. The main problem is a poor tonal range which results in losing details in blacks, but this can be compensated for in edit.
Actually, the Auto Picture Style makes too much contrast in low-light and causes bad JPEGs sharpness.
There is also the same problem in videos due to the limited tonal range.
It is quite easy to record HD movies with this camera. Then, you can transfer your videos and photos to a smart device (either iOS or Android) or share them online by using NFC and Wi-Fi.
With a chunky black body, it has a typical Canon DSLR look.
Compared to the previous Canon cameras, the design mostly stayed the same with just a few new details, so most people will only recognise this model according to the name on at the badge of the camera.
The stereo mic is placed on either side, there are several new buttons on top, while the LED lamp for Wi-Fi status is on the left shoulder.
On the right shoulder of this model, there is the mode dial.
The outer parts are mainly made from the polycarbonate, which gives the plasticky feel.
Ideal for those who are looking for a reasonably affordable, reliable and functional camera to take pictures of their kids, friends, pet as well as vacation snapshots.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6i/750D continues the line’s tradition of being the crowd-pleasing choice for family photographers.

The Rebel T6i brings resolution and low-light performance in line with its 2015 peers.
Dale Baskin, dpreview.com
This is a great camera that’s capable of delivering superb image quality.
Angela Nicholson, Tech Radar
Great choice for beginners making their first inroads into DSLR photography and though there are cheaper Canon DSLR’s available, they’re not as feature-packed and are unlikely to serve your needs as well in the long term.
