DPReview has an opinion piece on Canon’s decision to run two very similar models of Rebels that differ in price by just 8%.  Read the article 

The gist of the article –

  • The lower end, T6i gives the big box retailers a cheaper camera to sell in large volume.
  • The T6s will sell better at the camera stores where employees will have an easier time explaining why the top LCD and other features make it worth spending more and thus make a better margin per camera

It is an interesting idea but I would love to see some numbers about these little camera shops and how much inventory they actually move compared to something like Amazon or B&H Photo. I suspect it is small. I know my local shop struggles to carry many Canon DSLRs as they force shp owners to buy larger amount of inventory than Nikon or Pentax.

I do agree that the T6s is a clear winner between these two and in my mind worth the extra money.  Beyond the top LCD you get manual movie mode, Digital zoom in movie mode,  Servo AF in live view and the eye sensor.  See my complete write up on the T6i and T6s for more information.

What are your thoughts? Any reason to go with the T6i? The difference is about the cost of the 50mm f/1.8 lens.

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND

  1. Small retail mom and pop shops are going out of business. The only one in my town just did and we’re only left with the big box stores. I think this theory is a bust save for a few of the more well established specialty stores in urban areas with lots of traffic and repeat customers.

  2. What interests me is how long they’ll keep the 700D for. It’s the camera I’m contemplating as (in the UK anyway) it’s 1/2 the price of the 760D. So the jump is much greater for not much gain, especially as a first DSLR. Obviously I’d like the 760D with the new sensor, but for the budget it’s not worth the stretch when I can get the 700D and some lenses and other accessories.
