Photography Question 
Rosina Horst

Help, Please

I am hoping to upgrade my photography equipment in the near future to a Canon DSLR. I would like to get a Canon Rebel t6i or t7i. Has anyone had experience with these? I would like to hear feedback on pros and cons about them. I have researched them some, but of course every camera store brags every camera up whether it is good or not!:) I enjoy a variety of photography and want a camera that works well for landscapes as well as portraits and weddings. Are kit lens low quality? Kits are much cheaper to buy but if the quality is considerably lower I would not want a kit lens. Thanks in advance for your help!

  Hi Rosina,
DPReview is a great site for photo related reviews and data. Try this link for comparison:
If you click on camera name on top, you'll get a lot of information, samples and comments for each camera.
Basically, t7i is one generation (2 years) ahead of t6i, the price is a bit higher but it is a better camera in almost every way.
When it comes to lenses, price is usually very related to quality. There are some exceptions but very few. For CANON, magical letter in lens name is L. If you can afford it, it does make a difference.
You can also find some great lens reviews on the same site.
Hope this helps,

  Hi Rosina,
I am now using a T6i and very satisfied with it. I started with the T's as soon as they came out. I have upgraded to the new ones several times. Every time I upgrade I love the improvements they have made. My husband uses a Mark II that does have some features that are better but its more costly too. Hope this helps.
