The Canon Rebel T6 replaces the Rebel T6 as Canon's least expensive SLR digital camera. While the T6 is almost identical to the T5, Canon has doubled the resolution of the LCD display (920,000 pixels vs 460,000 in the T5), added a faster Digic 4+ processor and built-in wifi.

Built-in Wi-Fi is a very nice addition to the T6 but it doesn't work the way that most dental offices would like. You can use your smartphone, tablet or computer to view images on the camera's memory card and you can also control the camera using one of these devices as a live view remote. You can also transfer images once they have been captured on the memory card, but the camera will not automatically transfer the images to a device. If you would like this capability, then the popular Eye-Fi Wi-Fi memory card is your best bet.
Nissin's MF18 macro flash is the first flash option for E-TTL flash control on the T6. The MF18 is very similar to the Canon MR-14EX macro flash in that it is also a dual tube flash that is shaped like a ring. Each side of the flash has two possible positions: in next to the lens or each side can expand slightly out to the side. (shown at top of page - image #2)

The Canon MR-14EX II macro flash is the second flash option. The MR-14EX's flash head is shaped like a ring flash, but it is actually "split" into two arced tubes. This gives you the even illumination of a ring, but still allows you to vary the power from side to side. This affords you more creative control over the lighting. (shown at top of page - image #1)
There are four lens options for the T6: the Tokina 100mm macro lens (18oz.), the Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens (11.5oz.), the Canon EF 100mm macro lens (20.5oz.) and the Canon EF 100mm L macro lens (22oz.). All four lenses offer very similar optical quality while the Canon EF 100mm L macro lens adds Canon's Image Stabilization (IS) system. The IS system makes focusing easier - a sophisticated system measures movement and counteracts the movement by shifting lens elements. If you are taking a mirror shot and you have the mirror in one hand and the camera in the other, you will be amazed how much more stable the image is in the viewfinder.

The Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens is recommended for orthodontic offices as most ortho practices take a specific series of photos: portraits along with anterior, buccal and occlusal intraoral views. The working distance (the distance from the lens to the subject being photographed) with the 60mm is less than the 100mm and 105mm lenses which makes taking ortho views easier.

For all other dental practices, a 100mm or 105mm macro lens is recommended to allow shooting smaller fields, especially in the posterior. These lenses have enough working distance to allow 1:1 closeup magnifications anywhere in the mouth. If you have any questions about which lens is best for your needs, please call us.
