Canon Rolls Out First EOS Rebel DSLR Cameras To Sport Built-in Wi-Fi And NFC

Canon U.S.A. announced a bunch of new camera models today, including a pair of EOS Rebel digital SLR shooters that are the first in the series to feature built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities. The new EOS Rebel T6s and T6i DSLR cameras also sport a newly developed 24.2-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, offering the highest resolution available on the EOS line.

The new cameras are aimed at two different types of users. According to Canon, the T6s is suitable for photography enthusiasts and those already experienced with entry-level cameras who now want to tinker with more advanced features and functions, whereas the T6i is intended for more casual photographers and/or first-time DSLR buyers.
