The new T6s and T6i will share a number of features, including a new APS-C-sized 24.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor and a Digic 6 processor. The cameras will use an updated Hybrid CMOS AF III technology for speedy autofocus in still and video modes that is similar to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF found on its higher-end cameras (such as the revamped Cinema EOS C100 Mark II).
Additional shared features include:
- A native ISO range of 100-12,800 with an expansion to 25,600
- An upgraded 7,650 pixel exposure metering sensor
- A 3-inch, 1.04 million dot, vari-angle touch screen display
- Faster live view for stills and movies
- Continuous shooting at 5 fps
- 1080p video recording at up to 60 fps with clean HDMI output
- Wi-Fi with NFC
- Flicker detection to compensate for sodium and mercury vapor light sources
- Distortion correction for stills and videos
- Miniature effect now available when shooting movies
- An Intelligent Viewfinder that overlays camera data on top of the optical viewfinder.
- A new Color Tone Detection AF mode that scans 19 AF points and identifies objects with skin tones to focus on instead of simply the nearest available object.
The T6s will add a few additional features to its bill of goods, including servo AF during burst mode in live view, an electronic level, and an HDR movie effect. The T6s body will set you back $850 or $1,200 with an 18-135mm lens.
