Smart-Review Commentary: For 2016, The entry level Canon Rebel T6 is the lowest cost DSLR entry by Canon in 2016. It has many of the features of DSLRs with higher prices, and is a solid beginner’s DSLR Camera. The Canon T6 has an improved Full HD movie mode, which uses contrast-type AF during Live View and video shooting. This DSLR requires lenses with an Autofocus motor for autofocus to work, these lenses are AF-S lenses. The new STM AF-S lenses have an almost silent autofocus. The video records sound using its built-in stereo microphone. This model does not have an external microphone jack, upgrade to the T6i to get this option to use external microphones. The CMOS sensor gives you 18.0 megapixels and low light sensitivity with a native ISO of 100-6400. The T6 includes WiFi & NFC to share your pictures and video, and to also control your DSLR remotely. This is one of the lowest priced options in DSLRs for 2016. It is a Smart-Review top pick.

Memory Cards: If you are going to record 1080p video on your T6, for best results we recommend Class 10 SDHC memory cards that record at 30mb/s and higher.
