Canon EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D review

Canon’s entry-level DSLR gets a few tweaks and upgrades, plus Wi-Fi connectivity for easy sharing

Digital Camera World Verdict

In order to continue to offer a great-value product, Canon hasn’t done anything exciting here. A better processor, which could have increased frame rate and general operational speeds, would have been nice. Wi-Fi and NFC will be welcomed by many, but if you already have an EOS 1200D, it’s not worth upgrading unless you’re desperate for that connectivity.

Canon’s entry-level DSLR, the EOS 1300D, replaces the two-year-old EOS 1200D. It’s a fantastic purchase for those looking for their first DSLR, but it also works well as a second camera. While it doesn’t represent a major overhaul from the previous generation, there are a couple of rather useful new features and tweaks which make it very appealing while still keeping it affordable.
