Canon EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D review

 

A reasonably specced, good-value option for beginners

Good value ; Wi-Fi and NFC ; Textured coating ; High-resolution screen

Fixed screen ; No touchscreen ; 95% viewfinder ; Slow focusing in live view

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D is a solid if uninspiring entry-level DSLR, eschewing eye-catching features in favour of image quality and low cost. It's a great beginner option, but less impressive as an upgrade.

Canon EOS 1300D review: Entry-level ace?

 

Thanks to smartphones, everyone's a photographer these days – but what happens when you hit your iPhone or Galaxy's imaging limits and realise you need something a bit beefier? Chances are, your first thought is to buy yourself what used to be known as...

Accessibly priced, cecent all-round image quality, hardy and lightweight plastic body, simple control layout with large buttons, detail-rich LCD screen, Wi-Fi and NFC for easy smartphone hookup

Uninspiring styling, screen doesn’t fare well in sunshine, slow continuous shooting speed, just nine autofocus points, limited ISO range, not much different to earlier 1200D model

The world of entry-level DSLRs isn't a particularly dynamic or fast-moving one, but Canon has succeeded in hitting all the main bullet points with the 1300D, bar the lack of touchscreen.

Canon's latest entry-level model DSLR represents excellent value, and provides many photographers with the opportunity to get on the first rung of the DSLR ladder.

Canon EOS 1300D review

 

Canon's stripped things back for its new budget DSLR – but has it compromised in the right places?

Great picture quality ; Wi-Fi and app abilities ; Low price

Hardly a looker ; Video and Live View lack autofocus ; Similarly priced rivals are better

It’s cheap as chips and takes great photos but the 1300D’s not quite the bargain it seems

Canon EOS 1300D Review

 

Reviewed, the new Canon EOS 1300D DSLR, the entry level DSLR from Canon that features built-in Wi-Fi and NFC.

Excellent value for money ; Wi-Fi and NFC built-in ; Good colour reproduction ; Good ergonomics and handling ; Easy to use ; Decent battery life ; Auto White Balance options of warm or white

Disappointing ISO range, and poor ISO performance at ISO3200 and above ; Only 3fps continuous shooting, 6 raw shots ; Entry level kit lens lacks image stabilisation ; Lacks auto-HDR shooting

Few DSLR cameras feature built-in Wi-Fi, particularly entry-level DSLRs, and this makes the price of the Canon EOS 1300D all the more impressive. The built-in Wi-Fi is easy to use with a compatible smartphone and the built-in NFC makes it all the more...
