3 Best Canon DSLR Cameras Under 750 Dollars:


The Rebel t5i comes with an 18 megapixel sensor, Digic 5 processor, 9-point all cross-type AF system, and a fully articulating 3.0 inch LCD screen.



Brand New-On pre-order (at this time), but significantly different from the t5i to warrant the extra money.

$749 - The t6i sells for $849


Way below the spending threshold, but an interesting choice because it is a full-featured DSLR in a really small package.


Canon Rebel t5i

The Rebel 5ti is so much better than the standard t5. It is a bigger investment, but well worth it because of the differences in features.

I did not include the Canon t5 in this article.  The LCD is not a touch screen and does not rotate. It does not have an external jack for sound recording, only shoots ar 3 frames-per-second, and only has 1 cross-type of focusing point.


  1. 18 megapixel sensor, Digic 5 processor, 3.0 inch articulating LCD screen
  2. 9-point all cross-type autofocus. 5 frames-per-second
  3. 12,800 ISO setting, 1080 HD video, continuous focus tracking for moving objects.

Canon Rebel t6i and t6s

Conspirators will tell you that Canon and other manufacturers purposely hold back a few features from their entry-level DSLRs so that they don't cut into the sales of their pro DSLR cameras that cost thousands and thousands of dollars.

It should be hard to argue that point if you take a close look at the Canon t6 cameras. Both the t6i and t6s have the CMOS auto-focus III, which is almost as good as the dual-pixel technology found on the Canon  EOS 70D and the 7D Mark II.

The 6ts, in particular performs and has a feature like it's expensive big brothers, the LCD information panel on top.  The specs are very impressive on both of these versions:

  1. 24 megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor with Digic 6 processor
  2. Super high ISO capabilities of 12,800. 
  3. 19-point cross-type focus points
  4. HD video in MP4 format
  5. 3-inch vari-angle touch screen LCD

You get really sophisticated DSLRs with both the Canon 6ti and 6ts cameras.  Here is avide from dpreview that illustrates the differences between these two entry-level DSLRs.

Canon EOS SL1

Canon SL1 vs t5i Size ComaprisonCanon SL1 vs t5i Size Comaprison

At the time of its release in March of 2013, it was the world's smallest digital SLR camera on the market. It is significantly smaller and lighter than the Canon t5i.

The Canon SL1 won a "GOLD" award from one of the granddaddies of all camera review sites, www.dpreview.com. In my opinion, there are two disadvantages of getting this camera. There is no articulating (rotating) LCD screen to rotate. It may be too small for those people who have exceptionally large hands.

Where to Buy Canon DSLR Under 750 Dollars

The SL1 uses the 2nd version of the Hybrid AF focusing system and covers a large majority of the frame. It has continuous auto-focusing and subject tracking in movie mode.

You've got plenty of options-that's for sure. I can't give you the one best place to buy your next camera.  Prices do fluctuate and we all have different shopping preferences too.

I've change my camera buying sources over the years, mostly because of the societal changes that have come along with the explosion of the Internet and online shopping.

I've narrowed my choices down to 3 on-line options.


A few searches to refine exactly what you want and you can find practically anything at the world's biggest auction site.

Adorama specializes in cameras and accessories. Their prices are very competitive.  They offer some nice money-saving bundles too.

I now buy a lot of household items as well as most of my camera equipment from Amazon, because it's so darn convenient.  Prices are good. Returning items is easy and shipping is fast.

Where NOT to Buy Your Next Canon DSLR

  1. Office superstore like Staples where the price for a Canon Sl1 was $750 and it was $499 on Amazon.
  2. On ebay where the seller has a bad reputation.

Have a blast-shoot a Canon!
