Everybody loves the countryside, especially on vacations and no one in his right mind loves the hustle and bustle of the city streets. Yes, an adventure with nature is indeed enjoyable, and you will be lying if you say that you are ready to forget the experience as soon as you left the great outdoors.
Those memories can only be immortalized through pictures and videos. Thus, it is advisable to hold your horses first and decide: Canon SL1 or Canon T6? Which will you bring before you even plan an adventure vacation?
The following are the different points to consider in choosing a better camera like in the case of Canon SL1 or Canon T6.
Which is lighter and smaller?
Let’s face it. Everybody is lazy nowadays and there is really nothing wrong with that especially if we are up for a playful adventure, because that is the whole point – be lazy, carefree and just enjoy.
Bringing the smallest and lightest camera is something we really don’t need to remind ourselves of too; however, to make our decision substantially reasoned, we should know the right numbers.
Canon SL1 weighs 0.9 lb. and has a dimension of 4.6 inches by 3.6 inches, while Canon T6 weighs 1.07 lb. and has a dimension of 5.1 inches by 4 inches. Yep. Canon T6 is heavier and bigger; by how much? Canon T6 is 0.17 lb. heavier, 0.5 inch longer and 0.4 inch wider; that is, 19% heavier and 22% larger.
Now the numbers might look intimidating but if you will take out a ruler and a weighing scale, then visualize this, the weight and dimension of Canon T6 can still qualify as being handy. So it is safe to assume that however heavier and bigger this is, it is really not that significant, because their difference is relatively small.
Which lasts longer?
By outdoors, we literally mean outside, usually far from human habitation and so being outside also means charging stations are scarce.
Obviously you will need a camera with a longer battery life. In the language of cameras, having a longer battery life means more pictures to take. The Canon SL1 can provide a maximum of 380 shots using its LP-E12 battery, while the Canon T6 can capture 500 images out of one charge of its LP-E10 battery.
Therefore, if you don’t want your photography interrupted so you can really capture the start, the adventure and the end of your exciting and daring activity, you should bring Canon T6 with you. You definitely don’t need to worry for a gadget running out of juice so you can take pictures as much as you can, even outdoors.
How much do they cost?
To buy something cheaper while not compromising quality is the oldest trick in the book of every wise buyer. But by not compromising quality, what do we really mean?
The camera must have the language that even newbies can understand and it must have the basic function and features, enough for you to simply enjoy the beauty of nature. True to that, it is a long standing observation that most expensive gadgets have complex features which are mostly left unused.
Canon T6 is the go-to camera in terms of affordability, it costs 399 USD compared to 569 USD of Canon SL1. The idea that the money that you can save by buying cheaper may also add up to your budget itinerary should not be discounted.
Which will your friends prefer?
Peer pressure is real, but for the most part, it is not that harmful if you give in to what most of your friends prefer, especially if what they just want are your awesome pictures.
With Canon T6 built-in WIFI feature and simplified pairing with other phones, you will be able to share your photos with your friends right away, no need to feel the pressure of finding your computer first and upload pictures in your social media accounts, as you can do this later. Saves you time, so more time with camping or whatever it is that you do outdoors.
Advanced right? Well, compared to Canon SL1, Canon T6 is newer. Canon SL1 went out of the market 5 years ago and T6 was just two years ago.
So what is the final say?
Isn’t it obvious? Canon T6 won, but for the sake of the people who are making their final preparations for a camp in the great outdoors, let us wrap things up.
Bring Canon T6 with you! It is handy, less expensive, has longer battery life, newer, simplifies pairing with other phones and has a built-in WIFI.
