Canon is one of the most versatile and expansive systems to begin with and, as such, offers a variety of gateway DSLRs to choose from. The current entry-level model is the EOS Rebel T6, which has a modest feature-set, but a wealth of imaging capabilities. It revolves around an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor, which afford Full HD 1080p/30 fps video recording, a 3 fps still shooting rate, and expanded sensitivity to ISO 12800.
