Unboxing the New Canon Rebel T6/EOS 1300D DSLR Camera

Home Tips & Tricks   Unboxing the New Canon Rebel T6/EOS 1300D DSLR Camera   

This is an explanation of what arrives when you by this camera online. I ordered mine through Amazon but, as it arrived as a single item boxed and packaged by Canon, I am sure that the items I received are the same anyone would regardless of where it was ordered.

The box is smaller than I thought it would be – and lighter. I know that the small size is a selling point for this camera, but I expected the box to be larger, especially as I had ordered the kit lens as well. The first thing in the box as you open it is the paperwork. The guarantee and a small, basic manual. It is small – the size of a pocket book and quite thin. If you want to know this camera thoroughly you would be well advised to buy a manual, or go to the canon website and download their full manual.

Then, next out of the box is the canon strap. Needless to say you should really always have the camera fixed to someone or something – yourself or a tripod. Gravity is not a photographer’s friend. In fact most professional photographers I know will put their cameras on the floor when they are not using them, rather than risk them falling off a chair or a table. being accidentally kicked causes much less damage.

Then you will find the battery charger, the electric cable for it and the cannon battery. Although the battery will often have some charge when it comes out of the box, it is always best to fully charge it because it helps to lengthen the battery life if it is regularly charged to the maximum. In this case it took about four hours. This is a Canon branded battery – the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery LP-E10. It is always better to get the branded battery because, sometimes the camera won’t recognize a generic battery, especially if you are using them in a battery grip, for example.

Next out of the box is the USB cable, which will connect your camera to a computer. obviously this allows you to download your images or videos directly to a computer or hard drive. The Canon T6/1300D does boat both NFC )near field communication) and WiFi, so you can download your pictures straight to a computer, the internet or social media platforms like Facebook or YouTube. But that might not be practical with large files or folders and then the cable would be preferred. The cable is also useful if you need to upload anything to the camera, like firmware updates.

As I usually shoot with Nikon cameras, I decided to buy the kit lens with the camera. There are two available and I chose to get the cheaper of the two, the EF-S 18-55m IS II. It has some good reviews and I am looking forward to testing it out and comparing it with my Nikon lenses. So this is the next thing out of the box.

And finally, the main event. The Canon Rebel T6/EOS 1300D. My initial feeling is that it is a small, well made camera. The body is nicely moulded and feels robust and tough. It feels good in hand and has a solid weight. It is small, but no so much that the buttons are too small, or that the kit lenses affects the balance. It has a tight grip, which means you could hold it comfortably with one hand. I think you need to be right-handed for this camera, as the buttons on the back are designed to be worked with the right hand.

Overall I am impressed. The camera feels like it is a grown up camera. It is not flimsy and, although the body is plastic, it does not feel thin or fragile. The lens feels a good weight, and is solid. On the camera it is quick and responsive. The box contains everything you need to get started, except for a memory card. I am really looking forward to testing this camera out.

Sometimes new models come to me with an energy and enthusiasm that makes it clear they are hoping to discover a dream. Some of these models leave a lasting impact on the eyes. Others leave an impact on the heart. Very few of these models have that special beauty that goes beyond their outer looks and runs deep into their inner soul. Jessica fits that category so perfectly. GlamModel; Jessica, from San Jose, California, brings a fresh, new perspective to the modeling industry and that same sparkle to GlamModelz Magazine. Jessica may be new to professional modeling, but do not under-estimate her abilities in front of the camera. She is a true professional in every sense of the word! Besides her ability to turn on her natural charm Jessica has her stunning beauty and a refined ability to pose herself without assistance in very flattering looks time and time again. Jessica loves the hot stuff and is very comfortable in her own skin doing wonderfully exotic poses. Because of her gorgeous features and figure, I can hardly wait to shoot again, some high-end beauty and commercial fashion work with her. GlamModelz Magazine knows Jessica is going to be taking the NorCal modeling industry by storm and we look forward to following her career as she jets to super stardom.

What is Retouching? Part 2

As I mentioned in my prior post, retouching is a vast area and encompasses the smallest edit such as an image crop or resize to dramatic changes such as Photoshop art.  In this discussion I want to give you additional examples of how more extreme manipulation of the images can create drama or interest. The before and after pictures in Part 1 demonstrated a fairly basic approach to portrait retouching.  The goal of the retouch in that ...

A Good Review of the New Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera

By Jeremy Bayston  |   Submitted On March 13, 2017   The Nikon D3400 is aimed primarily at people who want to learn about photography and are moving up from bridge cameras or compact cameras or coming straight in from having taken up photography with their mobile phones. As a result it is designed to help people to move along from the automatic settings, which will probably be used initially, onto the semi-automatic and manual settings and ...
