Canon EOS 750D Short Review and Impressions

Canon EOS 750D

Canon EOS 750D

It's important: Canon EOS 750D in Japan was released under the name Canon EOS Kiss X8i, and in the USA under the name Canon EOS REBEL T6i.

The camera was introduced March 6 2015 with the camera Canon EOS 760Dwhich has a lot in common with the 750D.

10 basic things about the Canon EOS 750D:

  1. The camera uses a 24MP CMOS sensor and captures images with a maximum size of 6000 X 4000 pixels. The pixel density of the 750D is even 20% higher than that of the fifty megapixel Canon EOS 5Dsr и Canon EOS 5DS. The same sensor is used by cameras. Canon EOS 760D and mirrorless Canon EOS M3. Personally, I assume that Canon 2000D (aka 1500D) also uses a Canon 750D sensor, but with a trimmed Hybrid CMOS AF III function. It is very good that after a long stagnation with 18 MP-like sensors, which put in a huge number of cameras (550D->600D->650D->700D1200D->1300D + 7D, 60D/60Da, 100D, 4000D + M->M2, M10) finally in 750D something really new appeared.
  2. For focusing through JVI Canon 750D responds with a module 19 cruciform focus pointssame as the models 7D, 70Dand 760D... The center point has an additional high-precision cross-shaped sensor located diagonally (the so-called X-orientation), which works only with F≤2.8 lenses. Thus, the center point is double cruciform. Also, the 5 center cross dots (in the vertical row) have a special zigzag pattern that improves focusing when 2.8
  3. The system uses Live View to focus. Hybrid CMOS AF IIIsame as cameras Canon EOS M3 и 760D. Part of the matrix pixels is reserved for the autofocus system by measuring the phase difference. The coverage area is 80% horizontal and 70% vertical. Available enlargement of the selected area, as well as focus modes FlexiZone Single, FlexiZone Multi and the function with priority face. Unfortunately, the tracking function of moving objects Servo AF in Live View is not supported. The system only works properly with lenses with F≤5.6. If F>5.6, normal contrast focusing is enabled. Unfortunately, the Canon 750D's sensor doesn't feature the DUAL PIXEL technology of the successor Canon 800D, so focusing in Live View is slightly worse than cameras with more advanced technology. Models 750D/760D/M3 were the last to use Hybrid CMOS AF.
  4. The Canon 750D uses an ISO range of 100-12.800, expandable to 25.600. The DIGIC VI processor is responsible for image processing, exactly the same processor works on the cameras Canon 760D, Canon 80D, Canon 200D, Canon 6D MarkIICannon M3, Cannon M10, And Canon 5DS / Canon 5Dsr, Canon 7D MarkII two such processors are used at once. At high ISO, the camera behaves just a little better than its predecessor 700D.
  5. JVI covers 95% of the frame and has a magnification of 0.81x, based on a pentamirror.
  6. Canon 750D uses new metering sensor exposure, 63-zone (9 * 7 zones) with 7.560-pixel RGB, which was later used by 800D, 77Dand Canon 6D MarkII. This sensor allows you to work in tandem with the focusing system, primarily it defines skin tone in the frame and allows you to more accurately / quickly focus on people in the frame in automatic focusing modes. Also, this sensor allows you to detect flickering light and adjust the shutter release to eliminate it.
  7. The continuous shooting speed is 5 fps, which is sufficient for almost any amateur photography task. Unfortunately, the burst shooting speed has not improved compared to older models. The camera uses one format card slot SD and supports UHS-I high speed bus (write speed up to 104 MB / sec.), and frame buffer makes only 8 pictures in RAW format.
  8. Canon 750D can record video Full HD 1080p 1920 X 1080, 30p, MPEG-4 and H.264 codec, there is a built-in stereo microphone and a 3.5mm jack for an external microphone. Video can be recorded to external devices via HDMI (for the first time among amateur cameras in this segment).
  9. The camera has a three-inch display, rotary and touchscreen with 1.040.000 points. You can set the focus point by touching.
  10. This is Canon's first amateur camera in its class with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. The camera can be controlled via Wi-Fi.

My experience

The 750D is the long-awaited transition from Canon's hobbyist crop to the new 24MP sensor. It's a pity, but with the growth of megapixels, the ISO range has not increased in any way. Opportunities for dynamic range and picture quality at high ISO are also not far from Canon 700D... But the transition to the focusing system from the 7D / 70D is a very pleasant upgrade.

Despite all the innovations, the 750D strictly follows the capabilities and goals of its amateur line in which it is located. Personally, I see no particular reason for lovers to update their old 550D/600D/650D/700D up to 750D. If you are already updating, then to 800D, the latter uses a DUAL PIXEL sensor and Canon's new 80D focus module.

Overall, the 750D is a lot like its predecessor. 700D and is its logical continuation with some improvements and innovations.

Sample Photos

All sample photos in the gallery below were shot using a lens Yongnuo 50 / 1.4. On-camera JPEG without additional processing. Some photos were taken using a polarizing filter. HOYA 58mm PL-CIR.

'JPEG' source photos can be download from this link... Original RAW ('.CR2') photos can be download from that link.

All sample photos in the gallery below were shot using a lens Yongnuo 35 / 1.4. Photos taken using RAW ('.CR2') file conversion with Canon original utility Digital Photo Pprofessional 4 (Canon DPP) During the shooting, I did not notice that I used everywhere white balance 'flash', and some of the photos were taken with the aspect ratio of 16: 9, so I had to tweak the RAW a little to get an acceptable picture.

    The usual update of the cropped Kenon. Someone will buy. But, as you already wrote, updating from old amateur cameras makes little sense.
    PS. And Little Red Riding Hood herself ate all the pies ...

    • Alexey

      She ate the wolf. Arkady miraculously escaped.

    Please note that this Youngnuo 35mm easily resolves high megapixels of the matrix, and also provides high micro-contrast (that is, the number of gradations of one or nearby colors), and indeed a nice picture. And the camera itself produces pictures of very good quality. Maybe it seemed to me, but Sigma can’t resolve this matrix and gives a picture a head lower in terms of resolution, which is strange, usually lenses from this company in the art series are famous for high resolution along with a poor-looking picture with medium micro contrast, which is not very suitable for black and white photography.

  • Ivan Wolverine

    this is a DSC of the CANON 500D type, but only with a 24 Mp matrix instead of 15 MP, and therefore the diffraction limitation of the aperture is not 7,9-7,5 as in the 500D, which is still tolerable and already 6,3 on the approaches to 5,6 ... progress, but!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Amateurs don't know anything about diffraction limiting and will never see it. And most importantly, unlike us, they will sleep peacefully and will not bother with the questions “should the aperture be clamped to F / 16 or not?”.

    • koba

      now, in order to keep up with the pursuit of megapixels, Kenon began to install 32,5 megapixel matrices in new cameras, probably everyone will now switch to this to somehow say that they have crossed the border of 30 megapixels, and everyone doesn’t care that 90 % of lenses are simply not able to resolve such matrices, and those that will be able and will cost like cars. And their diffraction limit will start from F5.6. Samsung today announced that it has started selling 48MP LCDs for mobile phones with a cell size of 0.7! What else can I say ... The wonderful 6MP sensor in the Nikon D40 has a pixel size of 7,8 microns and is almost equal to that of the Nikon D700 (8,4 microns), while in the D90 its size has decreased to 5.4 with a still tolerable diffraction limit of F9 , and now 0,7 ...

    To be honest, I had never uploaded archives with photos to see them in full size from one or another CZK. But here, I think, I'll take a look. And honestly - I didn’t think that cameras are filming “like that” now. I don’t know - maybe this quality can only be found in the Canon XXXXD and XXXD lines (I don’t know how the new XXD is doing, but I hope it’s better), so don’t judge strictly if I’m wrong. I want to show the difference in photo processing using the example of a bearded Canon EOS 10D (yes, I didn't make a seal :)). What caught my eye was the artifacts and noticeable noise even on the ISo 100 on the 750D. If you look at the photo without increasing it, then there is excellent sharpness, and there is no noise at all, and no artifacts are visible. But you can't increase it yet ... Here, for example, the first two 100% crops (750D, ISO100 | 10D, ISO400):

  • Stanislas

    Here's another crop comparison (750D, ISO100 | 10D, ISO100). The first photo looks like it was taken on a smartphone with a gigapixel matrix: artifacts around the edges of contrasting details, noise. HA also send “hello” (but this is the lens jamb). Yes, if the photo from 750D is reduced to 6MP, which is produced by 10D, then some of the artifacts will go away. But then what's the point in those 24MP? I personally don't see the point. Not that I'm trying to criticize this camera, no. It's just that with each new CZK, the manufacturer confidently repeats that he “worked on the noise level, DD and blah-blah-blah”. Indeed, at such a rate, the crop should have been filming no worse than the FF, or even the SF, but alas ...

  • Stanislas

    And here is a photo in full size. The first was done on Canon EF 35-105mm 1: 3.5-4.5, and the second and third - on MC Helios-81H.


  • Ivan Wolverine

    on a laptop monitor a maximum of 2 megapixels, it really is not noticeable - when the aperture is 5,6 or when 11 ... but when printing on a large format, all the "soap" comes out :-)))))

    • Michael

      It must be a very large format)

      • Arkady Shapoval

        You also need to remember that you need to watch a large format from an appropriate distance, which eliminates the loss of detail for human vision.

  • dudonka0

    Maybe someone knows how to check the mileage on this model?

    • Oleg

      Upload a fresh photo from the camera to the Camera Shutter Count resource.

      • Oleg

        Although, sorry, they say that for Canon it does not show correctly. At first I thought it was a Nikon 750.

    • Michael

      There is EOSinfo for checking Boots. Launch the program, connect the camera down and voila.

  • Dima

    Interesting things are happening, the 760d has a new case, an additional display and a second control wheel. It would seem that the amateur line is developing. But 800d is again in the old case and without additional ones. screen 850 already in a new case but also without a screen. Then 760d what was it? And the model is cool, if not for 24 megapixels but up to 20. Extras. A small screen is a rarity in the amateur lineup.
    And this same wheel on the 850D is absolutely the same as on the already ancient EOS M. I, of course, love Canon, but there are some strange things here even more than those of Nikons)

    And then where should we put the 77d?
